Spring break has arrived to South Florida and with it visiting friends and family. Having a full house involves large breakfasts menus and we have decided to share this one with all of you since is one of our favorites. It takes about an hour to make and it can be refrigerated for a few days and reheated at service time.
You can make individual servings on a muffin tray (just make sure you are using a good quality mold) or a springform pan.
Tip: don't just serve this baby for breakfast, it can also be served for brunch, lunch or dinner! Use it as a side and serve it with salad, ratatouille or baked sweet potatoes!
