As I’ve mentioned before, Thanksgiving is my favorite food holiday. This is the holiday that I scour my favorite food magazines, scroll through my favorite food blogs and visit numerous websites looking for the perfect new recipe to take to our family get together. We, like so many other families, spend the night together Wednesday night so Thursday morning is literally wall to wall food from the moment we wake up till the moment we go to sleep that night. In years past, Carmi and I have shared some family favorites, exciting new side dishes as well as an entire series on using up those leftovers. This month we will be sharing some delicious breakfast options that don’t take a lot of time or effort but will still wow and impress your family Thanksgiving morning.

This newest creation I believe will be one of your favorites as well.
