I haven't posted a recipe in forever, mainly because I haven't been cooking much! With my kids home and our summer schedule so packed, I pretty much rely on quick easy meals--a lot of grilling and not much planning ahead. Sorry! But I did type this one up a while ago, so I'll share it today!
Holy Cow, these things were good!!! Like, lick the pan clean and wish you had doubled the recipe kind of good. The kids couldn't get enough of them and between the four of them (and some help from me) we finished off a 9x13 pan for breakfast!
(Don't feel overwhelmed by the long list of ingredients. It. is. worth. it.)
