Don’t you just love it when you make a new thing, and everyone is happy with it? It doesn’t happen often that 6 out of 6 in our household all agree about a meal, but occasionally I hit it right on the mark. This is one of those! I was so glad when every single person was asking for more, especially since breakfast is such an important meal. These were so easy to make, too – double bonus!!!
