I know they say that breakfst is the most important meal of the day...and it is! Not to mention, the tastiest. You can have it sweet, savoury, spicy, big or small, hot or cold...breakfast can be enjoyed at home , in a restaurant, on the weekend, day or night. Dig in and enjoy!
I dedicate this page to breakfast and all those who love it. These are just a small handful of my favourites, with many more to come. Just click on the photo for the recipes!
Nothing says weekend like a big pile of pancakes! They are the quitessential morning treat and if someone cooks you pancakes, you need to keep them. I just love the sweet, soft dough with a generous amount of butter and syrup. This is indulgent kind of breakfast. I recommend crispy bacon to go alongside...to dip in the syrup, of course.
We recently bought a waffle iron and I was so excited to try it out. I'd never had fresh, homemade waffles before, just the pop in the toaster kind. The batter is ridiculously easy to make and works really well. You can make a really big batch and keep it in the fridge for a few days and have waffles whenever you like. Give this a try!
STEAKHOUSE BENNY WITH PARSLEY HOLLANDAISE
Got a man around for breakfast? This is the best thing to whip up...he will be eating out of your hand. Make sure to season the steak well and it should ideally be cooked to medium rare.
SPICY & MEATY
Got leftover roast beef? Love eggs? I love spicy food and this one delivers. The endorphins, the sweat of the brow, the runny nose...I love it all! Spice lets you know you're alive, in the moment. No escape. Heat grabs your attention, won't give in and won't be ignored. Crank up the heat...it'll cure what ails ya!
CHILLI BENNY & GRAINY MUSTARD CREAM SAUCE
Want to impress someone with an unforgetable breakfast (or dinner)? Try this. It's really easy and delicious. I love the contrasts of the crunchy english muffin, the soft basted egg with a runny yolk, the spicy chilli and the creamy sauce. You'll find that all the flavours and textures compliment each other really nicely.
Flaky phyllo dough surrounds spicy baked beans, creamed corn and an egg with the yolk oozing out when you cut into it. Delicious! Baked beans and cream corn are so simple to make and pack a punch with flavour and the crowd pleasing wow factor.
PULLED PORK BENNY &
I love bennies!! The combination of egg yolk, hollandaise and just about anything in the world. I use a blender for my hollandaise, it's virtually idiot-proof and easy. No need for clarified butter, whisking until your arm just about falls off, sauce separating...a pain in the ass and you won't be able to tell the difference.
