Breakfast for Lunch - Great Ideas from the Market

Kids love breakfast - and there is no reason to limit breakfast foods to the start of the day. As a matter of fact, breakfast foods make great packed lunches. The market holds a number of great "breakfast for lunch" options.

Laura, from Laura's Biscotti makes a fantastic granola - lightly sweetened and loaded with whole grains.

Add that granola to fresh goat milk yogurt from Shellbark Hollow Farm,

Preheat oven to 375°F. Combine first 5 ingredients in processor; blend until onion is finely chopped. Add the low fat milk and butter; process just until blended. Transfer to large bowl. Mix in corn.
