Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, nutritionally speaking. This particular breakfast is NOT nutritional, but it is a wonderful, delicious, decadent breakfast for a special occasion. This is the breakfast that everyone asks for when it is their birthday or other special day. We have this a few times a year, and only on the weekend when a protein fueled brain is not as essential as on weekdays.
I warn you, this recipe may be addictive!Â It tastes so delicious and yet is so frugal that is you could have it more often, but then the specialness of it would be diminished and your nutritional needs might not be satisfied.
