My Favorite Way To Eat Eggs
My favorite way to eat eggs is in this delicious Biscuit Egg Bake. It’s my go-to recipe when I need to bring a breakfast item to a potluck brunch. And I also make it for my church from time to time to serve during our fellowship time between Sunday School and church.
Of course, French Toast Bake also uses a large number of eggs and is another big favorite of my entire family. And if the chickens have been overly productive, you can always add a couple extra eggs into the mix.

I’m a city girl turned country by my awesome husband and we have three busy boys and two darling daughters. I love spending time with my family, reading Karen Kingsbury novels, and catching up with friends while our kiddos have play dates. I’m blessed beyond measure and can’t wait to see what God has in store.
