Need breakfast inspiration? Here’s a round up of 10 memorable breakfasts I’ve made & eaten at home…
Hi! Yes I am still here, life has just been a bit busy since returning from the honeymoon (I will share some photos as soon as I get a little bit more time!). Thanks for sticking around & here is a super-fast round up of breakfasts I have eaten in the past from my Instagram account (in case you’re lacking ideas).
I’ve made a few comments on what/how under each photo but this is inspiration, which means you get to go and experiment and adapt it to whatever you like!
BREAKFAST APPLE CRUMBLE
Apples stewed in water with cinnamon & a few sultanas, then topped with oats mixed with cinnamon, walnuts, a teaspoon of honey and a little melted coconut oil then crisped under the grill.
PORRIDGE WITH APPLE & STRAWBERRIES
This is the breakfast I always default too when my tummy is unsettled as it’s so simple – oats cooked in water with grated granny smith and a few strawberries, then topped with walnut crumbles.
MEL’S BANANA BREAD
This recipe (click here) is a super tasty breakfast (especially with some butter…).
This is GREAT on weekends when you haven’t done your grocery shop yet but have random buts and pieces left in the fridge – a couple of boiled eggs and whatever veg you have (sweet potato, pumpkin, peas, tomato, stewed cabbage – seriously anything!) on sourdough with whatever fruit is left from the week on the side is lovely to share over too many cups of tea with your partner/roomie/Mum on a Sunday.
M was a fan of this one (he had to be – hello bacon).
Sauteed leeks, mushrooms and bacon on top of 3 eggs mixed with a little milk poured on slices of stale toasted ciabatta and baked in the oven until golden.
If I was making this for me I would have taken out the bacon, left out the milk, mixed the egg with a little water to thin it and added some spinach and ricotta to the egg mix.
MUESLI/GRANOLA & FRUIT
If you love the taste of a sweet muesli or granola do as I do when I have the craving and layer 1/3 of a cup on top of a wheat biscuit (I love vita brits for this). Also, try adding some warmed spinach to your muesli bowl – so good! & fruit fruit fruit – a variety of fruit makes these bowls so much more interesting.
If you’re keen to make your own granola you can find my recipe here.
I hope you’ve found some inspiration – healthy breakfast’s aren’t about green smoothies in this house. Just simple, tasty, quick food!
Have a fab Wednesday,
