I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying baking with my Kodiak Cakes mixes!  They have made my life in the kitchen SO much easier.  Instead of having to mess around with various flours and/or grinding my own in the VitaMix, I’m utterly thrilled to simply grab a Kodiak box, measure, add my other ingredients, and get on my merry baking way.  Up until now though, I have really only used my Kodiak for sweet treats, but when my last shipment of MuscleEgg came and my glorious plain Organic whites arrived (which I use EVERY single day), I thought I would step out of my sugar tooth box and try something savory instead.  I was craving something hearty, filling, and different from my usual baked stuff.

I knew I wanted to pack it in with lots of ingredients to make sure it was flavorful but also wanted something versatile that would work as a baked brunch side dish or even as stand alone afternoon/preworkout snack.  I ended up with a dish that was filled with ingredients that were good for me and I felt like I was fueled for the rest of my day.  The bread paired great with a light egg white omelet and a side of fruit as I originally intended and hoped for, but leftovers served as a great little afternoon snack I could nibble on before I trained as well!  I don’t typically like having a huge meal before I workout, so a piece of this with some afternoon caffeine was absolutely perfect!

I’m not a fan of edges & corners on my brownies, BUT on breads?

This was absolutely DELICIOUS served as a “toast” also… I took a large piece of the leftovers, sliced it lengthwise, stuck it under the broiler for a minute, added some sliced ham, MORE cheese, and DEVOURED it as a sandwich.  SO yummy!!!!
