"Delicious combination of flavors"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 11, 2013

"We had relatives stay with us and they had six children...I made this recipe the first morning they were here and they requested I make it for breakfast the next morning. I love this recipe and will use it frequently. I did bake it at 375 for 45 minutes and it helped the bottom layer to not be soggy. We have leftovers and now that our company has left...my husband and I are going to fight over who gets them for breakfast tomorrow morning!"
