Some mornings you just have to have savory. I went on the search for something quick and easy and just for me last Sunday morning. I’m an early bird and usually up at least 2-3 hours ahead of Grumpy, so sometimes I am not feeling much like I can wait for him to get up and feel like eating. He is an iffy kind of person when its breakfast time. Sometimes he wants it and sometimes he doesn’t and most times he wants pancakes if he decides he wants to eat.
I found this recipe on allrecipes.com and decided to make it for just one. It was very flavorful and perfect for just one person. This can be very versatile. You can use any type of protein you wish. I went with the vegetarian sausage, but you could use ham, bacon, even shrimp would work with this (in my opinion!). Try kicking up the spice some, I plan to next time I make this, and make it Mexican flavored. Just switch from seasoned croutons and use plain ones and then add your basic Mexican spices such as cumin and chili powder. Or, you could go with some warm Indian flavors and in place of the meat, use chick pea and a blend of Indian spices such as curry powder, garam masala, and mustard seeds (heat in oil with garlic and onion).
