Excellent! An Easter breakfast hit. I thought it was going to be really sweet but surprising not as sweet as you would think. Easy to make but it looked like you slaved in the kitchen. I could see sprinkling bacon crumbles on top for a sweet salty savory taste.

Everything I like in a recipe: easy, simple ingredients, quick, make ahead, and delicious! I think it was even better reheated in the microwave.

Super easy and delicious. I used maple syrup instead of corn syrup (I didn't have corn syrup) - turned out great.

I usually make this for the Mom's group I attend when we have our special Christmas Brunch. Everyone loves it! I prefer to use pecans instead of walnuts. If there are leftovers, they I just reheat in the microwave...it's still yummy!

I also made this and took to work - within an hour, it was almost gone! People really loved it!

I have made this recipe and taken it to work. My co-workers loved it. When I make it for work again I will leave off the nuts because of a co-worker's nut allergy.
