Try these low carb, breakfast-stuffed tomato cups for a delicious new way to eat the most important meal of the day. Even if you have breakfast for dinner! This post sponsored by Jones Dairy Farm.
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Whoever “they” is, no one ever really knows, but it’s what they say. And you know what’s great about that? They don’t ever really specify what time of day you are supposed to eat your important meal. They don’t say “at exactly 8am” or “before 12pm”. They just say it’s important and it’s good for you. This is good news because as far as I am concerned, you are then welcome to eat breakfast any time of day and it meets the requirement. Right? Am I right? I don’t care if you’re eating it at 11pm or 2am. As long as you’re eating it, you are satisfying the ephemeral “they” and all their infinite wisdom.
And did you know that September is National Breakfast Month? Makes great sense, since kids go back to school and parents like me are working hard to get a healthy breakfast into their kids before they leave the house. But sometimes in the chaos of the morning, it’s all I can do to throw a muffin (a healthy, low carb one, of course) at them as I hurry them into their shoes and out the door. And sometimes I myself don’t have time for anything but coffee as I run around trying to find my keys. If I had my druthers, I would be whipping up a big pan of eggs and bacon or sausage every morning so we could all feast, but that’s not the reality of a weekday morning with three kids.
How to make up for it? Brinner, of course! Sometimes breakfast food is best enjoyed in the evening, when the chaos has subsided and you can tuck into your meal in a more relaxed state of mind. We often rely on breakfast foods for dinner because they are easy, quick, and a meal that every single family member likes. So I created these Stuffed Tomato Cups for Jones Dairy Farm to help them celebrate National “Brinner” Month in all its glory. They are a delicious way to enjoy your favourite breakfast foods in one tidy little package. Perfect at 7am or 7pm, whatever works for you!
