Outstanding combination of breakfast flavors with just the right balance. Nice combination of textures, the bread soaked turns out creamy like a perfectly cooked quiche, the back bacon gives just a bit of chew and the bran flakes add just the right crunch.

I had to giggle at the name of this recipe. My hubby always jokingly hints that I should get up early and fix him breakfast...LOL, that only happens when we have company :)

Great to hear that the name of recipe made you giggle. I was laughing at the name when I read it the first time too. I said to my husband, "Then you should have to make the recipe, it is a wife-saver" hehe :-)
