Skinny Bitch Tuesdays: Potato Goat Cheese Bake

Potato Goat Cheese Bake

What up, peeps? I only have about one more day to finish writing my dissertation, so this is going to be a REALLY quick post!

It’s another Skinny Bitch Tuesday! This week Michelle chose the Breakfast Bake. After reading the ingredients though, I thought this dish would also work really well as a side for dinner so that’s how I prepared it. But, it would also be really tasty for breakfast!

Potato Goat Cheese Bake

Aside from making this for dinner instead of breakfast, I chose to add spinach and swapped out the cheddar cheese for goat cheese, because well, goat cheese rocks my world. I also threw in a splash of white wine for extra flavor (you might want to leave that out if you are making this for breakfast though). This is actually a really versatile dish. You could pretty much add in anything you wanted to. Some diced peppers would also be pretty tasty. If you want to make this more breakfast-y, then you could add in some bacon or crumbled sausage. Oh, and of course, any type of cheese will do!

    I am definitely making this for breakfast – potatoes and goat cheese, what better way to start the day? I like how you get some spinach in there too.

    This looks ah-maz-ing! I love the switches you made too. I would love having this for dinner or breakfast. I am not sure my husband would be thrilled about the goat cheese but I think I would just hide the fact that this was a swap out.
