Bubble Bread Breakfast Treat

America, South:

Every Christmas we have this for breakfast. It is a special occasion food because preparation takes a long time and some work. We make the toppings on Christmas Eve, and then in the morning we bake it and enjoy. My grandmother always makes this because she is a Southern cook and likes to make special dishes for her family. We always go back and forth eating cinnamon rolls, and then opening presents.
