I love breakfast food as much as the next person — actually, probably more than the next person. I’m one of those people who goes to a diner at 10 pm and orders the pancakes and bacon special. And I may or may not like to think of the day McDonald’s announced their 24-hour breakfast menu as a national holiday.

Don’t judge, just try this rad recipe that will satisfy your breakfast food needs at all hours of the day (or night).
