Expert Tips

If you want to make a more complete meal out of this, add some cooked pork sausage (for breakfast) or chicken (for dinner).

Any cheese works well in this dish, and although I kept the Cheddar at a minimum, more is always tastier.

This is a great grab-and-go breakfast, or a side dish for your next Breakfast for Dinner night.
