Waking up to Breakfast...

ISN'T IT WONDERFUL TO wake up to a cooked breakfast? When I have company visiting and during the school year, I love to have breakfast options that can be made the night before. Stradas are great for these kinds of mornings. I also love to make crockpot oatmeal and other crockpot breakfasts. Watch for future posts!

Since we have family visiting it's been busy here and we're a little off our normal schedule. Blog posts have been infrequent. Since I don't have a normal flow to my day, content is more challenging to come by. However, we all have to eat! So here is my "clean up left overs" strada!

I purchased these lovely pretzel rolls at Costco and my kids just loved them on our road trip to the family reunion. However I still have a few to use up, hence the strada idea! I cut up 5 rolls for this size casserole dish. Threw in some fresh mushrooms, spinach, and onion. Mixed up the eggs (8) and cream/milk (3/4 cup) and tossed some cheese on top and in the morning we'll have a lovely breakfast dish!

What do you like to make for breakfast? I guess I've spoiled my kiddos because they love a cooked breakfast. In fact my oldest almost considers it punishment to eat cold cereal. I think he's odd, but I guess I've created this some how. So "put together the night before" breakfast are genius to me! After all breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Not to mention this is a wonderful way to use up bread, veggies, left over meats, etc! Since we are on the heals of another fast maybe this would be a good thing!

Hope you're having a lovely week!


  1. I love Strada! Hot breakfast is always my favorite...any time of day! Thanks for sharing at the All Star Block Party!


  2. I was just searching for a make ahead breakfast dish to serve my husband's golfing buddies tomorrow morning before they head out to play in a tournament. Perfect. Now all I have to do is find some pretzel buns (that shouldn't be a problem)

    Thanks for sharing this at the All Star Block Party

  3. Loved this recipe so much, it's being featured on the All Star Block Party as one of my favorites for the week. I actually did make it for my husband's golfing friends using cheese bread instead of the pretzel bread (that's all my grocery store had) and it was awesome. Thanks for sharing. Now head on over to my blog to pick up your button!!
