So the hubs and I have been busy cleaning out the post-holiday candy cupboard.

It’s been a painfully long process (do you feel me? 😉 ), but our shelves are looking cleaner (in so many senses) and we’re ready to cook healthier meals and indulge a little less.

If you know me at all, you know there’s pretty much nothing that compares to my love of breakfast foods.

Breakfast for breakfast, lunch or dinner — all day long, every day, sweet or savory. I wouldn’t complain.

This breakfast casserole (or strata, if you’re into little big words like that) is loaded with all kinds of good, 100% natural ingredients that will keep you satisfied throughout the day: Dempster’s 100% Whole Grains 12 Grains Bread (made with no artificial colors or flavors!), milk, eggs, all natural ham, spinach and roasted red peppers.

It is an easy, delicious, healthy, make ahead meal in one — which is the best kind, if you ask me!

And best of all? You can make it for one, or make it for a crowd. Stir it all together, and take it out in the morning and simply bake or microwave. There is really no excuse not to eat well in the morning, or any time of day, even though I occasionally try to convince myself otherwise.

I would love to hear what your favorite quick and healthy breakfast or lunch (or brinner) ideas are! We are always in need of more things to make on the fly, because 2-year-olds and 4-year-olds aren’t known for being particularly patient.

And if I’m being totally honest, neither am I! I get seriously hangry friends. What are your go-to’s??

    Breakfast casseroles have always been a favorite of mine, especially if I’m having people over! I’m loving that you included how to make this as a single-serve recipe, Ashley! Looks so good with the spinach and ham!
