You Still Have Time To Make This for Dinner: Breakfast!

As it turns out everyone in my family likes breakfast, and it is always a special treat to have breakfast for dinner.  The real trick is to also make it a balanced nutritious meal.  So last night we had spinach mushroom and cheese omelets.  My kids my be a little odd in their affection for spinach and I may have their grandparents and the creators of Popeye the Sailor Man, but butter doesn't hurt.

I like to saute my mushrooms.  These are baby portbella's here, but sometimes i go for whatever is already sliced in the market. When they start to sweat I put in onions and garlic. Now you probably don't have to chop them this fine, but my son does not eat onions he can see.

While that's going I thaw a package of spinach in the microwave, and drain. Here, daughter A is stealing some. If you are a bit more organized than I you could use actually fresh spinach.  I like to warm that all up in the pan. and put it aside.  Then I made up omelets: Eggs, splash of milk  fill with spinach mushroom mixture and Swiss cheese. You can adjust the  cheese or veggie for each family member. We added whole wheat toast, a side of soy bacon and apple cider.  What is your family's favorite breakfast for dinner menu?

Not what you have a taste for tonight?  See my other Dinner (now)  post!

Every once in a while I get a hankering for eggs. It is one of the only non-vegan foods I ever miss. This would be one of those moments.
