Are you ready to try a unique and fun new recipe? I sure hope so! I love breakfast casseroles for many reasons. The top two reasons are they are at the ready for grab & go breakfasts and they taste amazing! I have been doing a lot of baked oatmeal lately and I thought it would be fun to mix things up with quinoa. Quinoa is a favorite ingredient for lots of you these days, so I figured it was time to make a breakfast recipe with it! This is a sweet mixture of black quinoa, sweet potatoes, dried fruit, eggs, coconut milk and spices.

Do you ever have quinoa for breakfast? If not you must...

Remove from the heat, transfer to a mixing bowl and mix in mashed sweet potato and eggs. Stir in 1/2 cup of water to the mixture before baking, it should be a bit runny.
