This is such a unique dish. We are breakfast food lovers so having this for dinner was a special treat. Very easy to make. Served with hash browns. Thank you Shelly (a fellow Oregonian!!!).

This looked so good that even tho there is just me, I wanted to try it out. I reduced it down to just 1/4 of the recipe, and it was perfect... I used a six inch wide, 2 inch deep compote dish, and reduced the baking time down to 25 minutes.
