Food For Thought:

We love this side dish for hosting because it can be made ahead of time (day or 2 before) and then just quickly reheated before serving. It is also a fabulous ingredient in our Green Eggs & Ham recipe.

We suggest making this side dish for any occasion where a quick-easy YET definitely-impressive breakfast is in order. This is leftovers at their best!
