While we’re very open about our dessert addiction, there’s always something fun about transforming something that’s typically sweet (or generally thought of as being sweet) and turning it into savory. For example, we normally enjoy sweet crepes, but turning them into a tasty dinner casserole was a stroke of genius, if we do say so ourselves.
In this case, we wanted to put a savory spin on our normal breakfast muffin, so we loaded them up with green veg (broccoli) and topped em off with tons of cheese. Absolute perfection.
