I'm basically a bore with breakfast.
But the following is a recipe I've used forever when I don't have time in the morning to make the oatmeal with seeds and nuts and homemade yogurt and berries on top and also cook my egg.
I make it ahead of time and it makes 4 breakfasts. I've eaten it cold or warmed up.
It sticks to the ribs really well.
1 cup uncooked grain - anything but wheat. Quinoa is delicious as is oatmeal.
2 cups berries or chopped mixed fruit of any kind.
1 cup skim milk or soya or yogurt or 1/2 cup ricotta or cottage cheese or almond milk.
6 medium eggs
1 tsp nutmeg and/or ginger to taste
1 long casserole dish greased well.
Beat eggs well with the milk or yogurt or ricotta.
Sprinkle grain on bottom of dish
Spread berries over top
Pour egg mixture over everything.
Bake at 375 for an hour or until firm. Cut into 4.
And yes, my change of habits and planning ahead with meals is going really well.
I realize, for the 100th time, that I am a person who can't be spontaneous with food.
