Here's a pantry/freezer challenge meal that I made earlier this month. This was very much an experiment...And when I make it again, I'd use Swiss cheese. Not Feta. As part of making a little more room in the pantry and freezer, I have found myself rummaging through each every afternoon looking for something to concoct. Sometimes it's an old recipe from the site, other times it's using up the spaghetti sauce that I find. And this meal was a concoction. I found Feta in the freezer. Cooked turkey bacon in the freezer. Onions in the cupboard and a red pepper in the fridge. Throw if all together...a breakfast for dinner.
