This dish is nothing more than something we whipped up to take advantage of a very uncommon occurrence. That being, breakfast for two. It seems as though, no matter what, there is always someone, or something, needing attention. So, when we had the opportunity for a peaceful 20 minutes alone. We took full advantage. Plus, Lindsay got to use her cute little pans. I mean come on, look at them!
Even if you don't have individual sized cast iron in your cabinet, you should still be considering this dish for your next breakfast. It is quick to prepare. Obviously, from the ingredients list, you know it's going to be tasty. You've only got twenty minutes, don't waste it.
