I love to have an all-in-one meal for a change, especially breakfast or brunch when you just want something easy to put together for a healthy, filling start of your day. This recipe was surprisingly tasty and satisfying (inspired by PlantStrong).

This is an easy and straightforward recipe. The Rotel diced tomatoes and chilies provide quite a hot kick. You can modify it by using half the can of Rotel and diced tomatoes to lower the heat. When I first created the recipe I found it was not sweet enough for me. Since then I have replaced the breadcrumbs with sweet blueberries and/or strawberries. Use 1–2 pints of the berries, mixed well together with ¼ cup of sugar substitute (monk fruit sugar substitute is a 1-to-1 conversion). There is no aftertaste and this is good for a diabetic diet.
