This is a make-ahead breakfast everyone can get behind. I usually make it before or after dinner, let it cool, cover it with foil, and pop it in the fridge until morning. Of course, you can make it same-day. It keeps well in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
I like it best with berries (frozen or fresh), but have also made it with a jumbled layer of frozen sliced peaches and it was lovely. I’ve made it with and without the topping, too. This recipe takes really well to tweaks: swap out the type of sugar or milk, use a different fruit or nut, try flax in place of eggs…make it yours!
