We go through a lot of effort to find the best recipes and ideas to share on this site. Some are totally made up from my head and others are inspired by other recipes we have had over the years or have seen in magazines and such. My mom and sisters come over once every other week and we test out these recipes. I’m happy to say that most turn out and are usually really good. If they don’t work out or don’t taste that great, we don’t share them here on the site. We really only like to share the ones we all likes. It’s as easy as that. Fortunately, over the years I’ve gotten so much better at looking at a recipe and its ingredients and it usually gives me a pretty good idea of it will be one we like. 😉

Simple and Delicious

Having said that, today happens to be one I knew would be a hit and it turned out even better than we thought. In fact, It’s probably my new favorite breakfast dish because it was just so good and flavorful. This Breakfast Rings takes a little more work than your standard eggs and bacon, but trust me – it’s worth it. Although it takes a little more time, it’s really simple to do and turned out perfect!! I’m thinking this is what I’ll make on Christmas morning because it was just that delicious!!

It would also be easy to change up based on the breakfast foods you prefer. You can add sausage, different cheese, different veggies – you name it!! Here is what you’ll need to make this yummy recipe…
