German Breakfast Bread

My family loves to eat.  Seriously.  We have certain foods that are made only on special occassion because if we didn't we would be very, very, very obese which is not good for longevity!  (I am always lamenting that there are sooooooooooooo many recipes and sooooooooo little time!  Especially since I got 3 cookbooks for Christmas!!!)

Unfortunately, this is one of those recipes.  This is loaded with cheese, butter, and egg yolks along with ham and onions--perfect for using that leftover Christmas ham.  That's why we only have this recipe on the occassion, but it makes it that much better when we do have it!
