CEREAL, BACON AND EGGS
as you know, i'm always on the hunt for fun breakfast ideas. i came across this idea while aimlessly googling around and found a site called Mr. Breakfast...which then led me to the original recipe from Jennifer at her blog Cookin' in the 'Cuse. i knew these sounded right up my alley...being that there is bacon involved... so i took her recipe and added a few more healthy goodies.
