Now I don’t know about you, but I cant ever choose between a sweet and a savory breakfast. So we switch between the two a lot of the time making my Oatmeal Pancakes, these caramel rolls and my Southwest Avocado Toast!

My kids are big breakfast eaters. I also grew up to my mom making big breakfasts every weekend. Now I may not make the big breakfasts all the time, but when I do I really go all out.
