Apparently it’s breakfast week here on the blog. Or at least that’s what is tending, so today I’m sharing a power breakfast that you can adapt any which way you please.
For me, I absolutely love the the flavor of mushrooms and leeks together. Of course I had to throw in spinach for some healthy greens. I kept this meatless, but next time I’m going to throw some sausage in for an extra protein boost.
In fact I would have here, but before I could get to it Matt already used it in one of his dishes. That’s what happens when there are two food bloggers in the house. I just hope I don’t have to resort to hiding ingredients! Although I’m thinking his and hers refrigerators would be pretty awesome.
And don’t worry, next week we’ll be back to our regular programming of sugary sweets. Have a great weekend and see you then.

I didn’t see an oven temperature in the directions. What temp do you recommend?
The recipe is missing what oven temp to bake at?
