Breakfast Bruschetta

A few months ago Shelby from The Life and Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch held a brunch recipe contest and this was one of the winners. When I first saw it knew that I would have to try it. For whatever reason it got lost among the plethora of recipes I have saved and I forgot about it.

I found it a week or so ago and decided it would be the perfect "breakfast for dinner" meal. While this would be great for actual breakfast, I thought it worked perfectly for dinner. Then again, anything with spinach is great for us. The kids love fresh spinach and so do Nathan and I. This was so delicious!

Try it soon... don't let it get lost in your recipe file like I did! :)

Breakfast Bruschetta

3 whole English Muffins, split
2 c. fresh Spinach, cleaned
1 small tomato, diced
1/3 c. fresh Sweet Red Pepper, diced
4 Green Onions, chopped
1 clove of Garlic, minced
2-3 slices of bacon, crispy fried
3 eggs, scrambled
1 TBL EVOO, (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
1 c shredded Mozzarella cheese or any white cheese
Salt and freshly ground Pepper
Tad of Hot Hungarian Paprika, Basil or Tarragon

1. Break up the Crispy Bacon into 1/2" pieces
2. In a skillet heat the oil. Add spinach, bacon, garlic, sweet pepper, tomato, onions, Paprika and Tarragon or Basil and saute until spinach is wilted. Remove spinach mixture and set aside.
3. In the same skillet, scramble the eggs until just fluffy. Set aside.

To assemble the Breakfast Bruschetta:

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment and place the split muffins on the sheet.
2. Put 2-3 TBL of Spinach mix on each English Muffin
3. Place 2 TBL of Scrambled Eggs on top of Spinach.
4. Sprinkle with shredded Mozzarella
5. Pop the baking sheet under the Broiler until the cheese is melted, about 1-2 minutes.
