Greens for Breakfast

Posted on

Since we were just talking about greens yesterday, Greens au Gratin, and if you are still having a hard time enjoying them or not sure where else to fit them into your meals, why not try them on a breakfast sandwich? Just sauté spinach or any other leafy green in a little bit of olive oil and a clove of minced garlic and layer it onto your egg and cheese sandwich in the morning.

Happy Saturday to you all!

If I haven’t convinced you yet, there’s a problem…

The flavors of the tomatoes really pop when you roast them. It’s just that simple.  I love biting into the roasted tomatoes and the juice just pops in your mouth. Sometimes if it’s right out of the oven, the juices almost burn the inside of your mouth and you have to make that “oh, ah” sound. Crazy enough, I love it.

I don’t know how the idea popped in my head to stuff potatoes with ricotta and roasted tomatoes, but it did and it was such a great random thought! The traditional broccoli and cheese potatoes are good, but they really have nothing on these stuffed potatoes. To make this easy dinner, you don’t need to pick up much from the store, so make a list: potatoes, ricotta cheese, grape tomatoes and some seasonings that you probably already have in your cupboard…
