I make this alot at my B&B and everyone loves it and I love it because I can prepare it the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning.

I have also made this several times and absolutely love it!!!

This sounds wonderful and I WILL try it. Currently we're traveling but when I get home I'll look for some breakfast recipes that might work at your B&B. I've collected recipes and cookbooks in the past, but now use the internet for most new things. Bonjody
