Although I’ve been a vegetarian for more than half my life (17 of 34 years), I still struggle with nutrition. Cheese and carb addition plus not liking fake meat products = massive protein struggle. So I created this recipe to bump up my breakfasts. Also, selfishly, I made it five-serving recipe to take care of breakfast for the entire work week. Boom – breakfast solved. I’m a messy cook, and it’s not the prettiest dish ever but it is yummmmmmm and will hold you over until lunch. Enjoy!
