“I found this recipe in the newspaper several years ago and love it—especially for overnight guests,” writes Lynn Ames from Idaho Falls, Idaho. “I can whip it up in no time flat. Whenever I serve it, I’m asked for the recipe.” LYNN’S TIP: “Add fresh fruit and hot coffee for a simple but satisfying breakfast.”
