Sheepherder's Breakfast Recipe

Sheepherder's Breakfast Recipe

My sister-in-law always made this delicious breakfast dish when we were camping. Served with toast, juice and milk or coffee, it's a sure hit with the breakfast crowd! One-dish casseroles like this were a big help while I was raising my nine children...Now I've passed this recipe to them. —Pauletta Bushnell, Albany, Oregon
