Pumpkin for Breakfast?!

A couple of weeks ago, I made this super delicious Pumpkin Pie Quinoa Breakfast Bake c/o Leanne over at Healthful Pursuit.  I bookmarked a ton of pumpkin recipes earlier this year in anticipation of the season and I had been patiently waiting to try this bad boy out.  Let me tell you, it did not disappoint!! For real, it was one of the best pumpkin dishes I've had in a long time.

I originally made this the night before because I was sure that it would be too time consuming for our busy mornings, but much to my surprise, it was one of the quickest dishes I've ever made.  This turned out to be a huge plus since I ended up having to make a replacement batch the following morning after Madison, Jesse, and I ate the entire thing that night.  This is a huge winner folks!!
