Ok, you may need to get up a little early to get this in the oven. But just think, it can be cooking while you are taking a quick shower or enjoying your first cup of coffee before the family gets up and creates the morning havoc.
It’s a make ahead breakfast dish so you won’t be up making a mess in the kitchen. It has to sit overnight to soak in the flavors. All you need to do is get up and pop it in the oven.
This dish is full of sweets and I think it goes really well with sausage patties. Makes for a great contrast of savory with the sweet.
In 45 minutes I guarantee the house will be waking up to the amazing smell of cinnamon baking.
