Someone's In The Kitchen With Dinah

Available via
 This recipe is from the classic cookbook titled Someone's In The Kitchen With Dinah (Dinah Shore, Doubleday, 1971).

As described on book's cover, this "Dinah Shore's personal cookbook - Dinah tells exactly how she prepares over 200 of her favorite recipes in her own kitchen."

There's a chapter dedicated to "Eggs, Brunch and Bread", although it's a very small part of a rather extensive cookbook.

This excellent recipe from Dinah Shore makes an excellent bread companion to any Southwestern or Mexican style breakfast. The shortening in the original recipe can be replaced by a similar amount of butter if desired.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.
