It’s great to be a morning person. While others snooze and snore, you’ve accomplished so much before 9 a.m. You emptied and loaded the dishwasher, jogged around the neighborhood and even made this tasty, nutritious breakfast for the family. This version of congee, a rice porridge popular in Asian cuisine, is made with naturally gluten-free millet, sweet potatoes and topped with bacon crumbles, diced apples and honey. There’s no better way to start your day!
1 cup cooked, diced bacon
1 cup diced apple
