These are the perfect make-ahead breakfast item. If you have a house full of company, this will also feed a hungry crowd that might wake up at different times. This is also a great recipe for keeping you out of the drive thru, and something you can make ahead to heat just as you are leaving and eat it on the go for busy mornings. You can freeze these, then pop them in the microwave to reheat. Much healthier than fast food, but when you need food fast, this is the recipe for you.
