Lasagna-Inspired Breakfast

It’s funny how you never know what chord a posting will have with readers. Last week, I shared my Portabella Lasagna recipe and it has quickly become my highest viewed posting since I started blogging last year.

In that recipe, a classic lasagna was my inspiration — and yet again for today’s posting, lasagna is where it all starts — this time, for breakfast.

I’m sure just like you, weekend mornings are a little less stressful than the busy workweek. I have a little more time to putter around in the kitchen and whip something up rather than the same old stand-by of a quick fried egg or oatmeal. I’m not a cereal person for breakfast — there’s something about milk in the morning that doesn’t sit well with me, so cereal is often a dessert treat after dinner.

I stumbled down the stairs on a recent Sunday morning and after staring into the fridge, saw that I still had some ricotta cheese and Italian cheese blend leftover from my Portabella Lasagna creation from earlier in the week. I had used up all my portabella mushrooms, but I still had regular mushrooms sitting in the crisper. Along with some eggs and leftover prosciutto slices, it was time to create something different for breakfast.

  1. I read your title & couldn’t wait to see what you came up with for breakfast. I would eat that every day of the week. Once made, I would think that it reheats very well in the microwave.

    • I’m so glad that I didn’t disappoint. Yes, it would be easy to reheat in the microwave, if there was any left after the first time it’s served :)
