Its a new year & that means I’m in the lab cooking up new recipes! I love a good breakfast & this one right here will be a new favorite in your rotation.

I got inspired today, I was thinking to myself what’s a good but simple recipe that people would love to have with their first meal of the day. This is great for beginner culinarians & those looking to expand their skills!
