On the weekends, I always make something good for breakfast. Usually, it’s fluffy pancakes, but it’s nice to mix it up every once in a while. Ooh, like those red velvet waffles. Those were delicious, too. This was something I’d been wanting to try out for a while, and super glad that it made it into our kitchen. It’s something different, yet so simple at the same time. I’d never even heard of a breakfast pizza, but got really excited at just the idea of it! And let me tell you, that aroma filling the kitchen as this bad boy cooked in the oven was intoxicating. I couldn’t wait to try it out.
This thing tasted just as good as it smelled. As we’re sitting at the table munching away, I was convinced that our daughter wouldn’t touch it, just because it looked different. I was wrong. She ate half of a piece, and I sat there in shock, watching her shovel it down her little pie hole. When we finished our pieces, I looked in the pan and saw that there were five whole pieces left. Good grief. I thought for a minute about what to do with them, because I knew that we wouldn’t eat the leftovers since the following day was Monday and we get back on our routine…so I texted our neighbor across the street. When I told her what we had for breakfast and asked if they wanted the rest, she excitedly called me about it, then sent her husband over to pick it up. About thirty minutes later, I got another text message from her, telling me how awesome it was. Yes, this has definitely been added to my breakfast list. My nieces and nephews will love this thing!
