Totally amazing way to wake up. You can premake these to the oven stage and just finish in the morning...they are so simple, you will be amazed at how good they taste. Enjoy. (This recipe should have featured in my ‘Whats for Breakfast?' ebook...the perfect pre Mother’s Day download to leave casually lying around on the off chance they are planning something! Be-gone soggy toast with cold eggs! Let’s enjoy breakfast shall we?) It is however in the 'Merry Christmix' ebook...if you were wondering!
