Mom's Favorite Egg Bake
Published: April 28, 2011
This recipe comes from Sam Nygren, mother of our art director, Tanya. Sam is known for her homemade bread, which gives this egg bake an extra bit of freshness and flavor. But don’t worry, you can grab any loaf around the kitchen and end up with a delicious and satisfying egg bake. This tastes best if you make it the night before you bake it and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight. And that should be music to the ears of those cabin goers looking to maximize their fun time and minimize their workload. Serves 6-8.
