Breakfast Bruschetta from Lisa

 If you are enjoying the recipe round ups and would like to join in on the contest fun you can fill out the form to the right to join my E-recipe newsletter!

Day four of the contest round up brings us this recipe from Lisa.  When Lisa sent this she told me that she came across this recipe online but wasn't sure where she saw it anymore.  I understand that - happens to me too often!  That is where Delicious has come in handy for me now  :o)  She told me that she loves to make it for breakfast and when she made it for her in-laws they loved it!







This recipe is very easy to scale down to one person, has great vegetables in it that are good for you (like spinach, tomatoes & red peppers), and was pretty quick to throw together.  Fallon made this recipe before I did and she suggested toasting the muffin a little before making it - which is what I did because  I too like my muffins on the crispier side.

 



Because Lisa doesn't have a blog and didn't remember where she had gotten the recipe from I will leave you with it below and maybe you would like to try this out too!  We have 2 more savory and 1 more sweet to share with you.  Come back Thursday to see which recipes are the winners!

Fallon also made this recipe and you can check out her version on her blog by clicking HERE.

What a great and healthy looking breakfast idea. I'm thinking that this will be great for when the kids come for Mother's Day.

English Muffins are a staple at our house for breakfast. Mine usually end up "southwestern" style with some cheese, green chiles and egg. Hubby likes his with butter and honey. Either way it is a great starter. This recipe will be a keeper. Love the spinach idea!
