grandpa’s thoughts:

This will take some time, but well worth it for special breakfast occasions. You can omit the cayenne pepper for a less spicy option. You can cook this ahead & warm it later in the microwave or a warm oven. However, it’s so good you can even eat it at room temp!

I think it’s a must for grandpa’s popularity.
