So a little bit about me…. while I don’t have children I do have an adorable husband that I lavish with my “food affections” and we both are a little festively plump. So I do, at varying stages of determination, make a concerted effort to make healthier choices. And there were plenty of options in my bag this week.
With both of these factors pulling at me – sleep and the want for a healthy choice – the “Bruffin” was born. A fully loaded, low carb high protein delicious food orgy that satiates the both needs. I can just pop one in the hubbys lunch bag and lay in bed for an extra 15 min. Perfect also for a kids lunch bag, make a week ahead and freeze and pull out of the fridge the day before.
Fully Loaded Bruffins
2 Strips bacon
1 Cup Mozarella
1 Cup Tasty Cheese
1/4 Cup Cream
1 small bunch Kale
Grate the cheeses, slice the mushrooms, slice the tomatoes, finely chop the kale, dice the bacon and chorizo. Combine the eggs and cream in a jug.
Sauté the mushrooms in butter and olive oil in a pan and put aside.
Now assemble! I put a layer of mixed cheese in the bottom, the 2 slices of tomato, decent pinch of meats, mushrooms and top with kale. Them another topping of cheese and a twist of cracked pepper to finish.
Bake in the oven for 30 minutes on 180. Wait until completely cooled to take out of the tray. Then wrap up individually in a container and put in the fridge. Breakfast for 2 people 3 days, or more if you double the batch.
Makes 6 large Bruins.
