Hi guys!
Thank you so much for this recipe – my daughter and I will be making this very soon! She took a breakfast cooking class at Well Seasoned a few years back and still uses all her recipes.
As for this recipe, I am just wondering if you could add the spices to the written recipe – I think they were missed…?
Thank you and looking forward to your other recipes – you guys are doing a great job!
We have been really enjoying cooking together in our household since being quarantined and even though I’ve been cooking for years as a mom, I can definitely stand to learn a few more things, from knife work to new meal ideas and kitchen tips. Cheers!
