It’s that time again- the monthly Recipe Redux is here! August’s theme is:
Rise and Shine with a Savory Breakfast
The trend of protein-packed breakfasts is catching on…and back-to-school time is looming. This month, show us new healthy takes on eating savory or dinner-inspired dishes for breakfast.
I thought this was a fun but challenging idea as I typically eat a sweet breakfast, as do many others. Obviously when thinking of savory the first thing them comes to mind is eggs… maybe some sort of egg cup. But I knew I could be more creative than that so savory bread pudding was created. I obviously needed to add some veggies and cheese so goat cheese plus onions, spinach, and mushrooms for the win. The savory bread pudding adds veggies to a meal that is generally lacking them and has a good carb and protein balance between the bread and the eggs. I used multi-grain bread but you could use whatever type of bread you prefer (and really any cheese/veggie combo that strikes your fancy).
This would be a great dish to make on Sunday nights for meal prep to eat for breakfast throughout the week as well as for entertaining a group or any special occasion/holiday. Savory bread pudding is a little unusual and less traditional but I guarantee your guests will be impressed with it. I actually ended up eating for breakfast and lunch some days (partly because a 13×9 casserole dish is a large serving #foodbloggerproblems)
Do you like bread pudding? Prefer savory or sweet breakfasts??
