Christmas Breakfast Bake
The popping colour from the red cherry tomatoes and the green spinach leaves screams Christmas! This bake is not only a fantastic, tasty, filling breakfast for any morning but it also makes a delicious weeknight dinner teamed with salad or veggies. You can also divide the mixture in two. Serve one for Christmas morning and freeze one for another day. Get creative! You can add other veggies to this such as asparagus or capsicum. Yum!
