I found this recipe on AllRecipes.com while chatting with Lacey about some ways to prepare for the onslaught of family and friends during the holiday season. The challenge during this season is to be a gracious hostess, prepared for the unexpected. Our expertise has always been in the breakfast arena, so having a few tricks up our sleeves for those other two meals can come in handy! This sounds particularly tasty, so I'm loking forward to giving it a try!
