I am certainly no Jamie Oliver, but I can chuck a few things together on a Saturday morning that put a smile on the husband’s face. Do you ever find yourself struggling for breakfast ideas on the weekend? When you a have a little more time on your hands and fancy something other than cornflakes? Here are my easy peasy fave weekend breakfasts.
Boiled eggs with avocado on toast
Basic bitch. I know. BUT hear me out. I have been smashing avocados on toast for some time now, but only recently did I really find the key to success. Olive oil and balsamic glaze…trust me, it makes it! Once you have squished your avo’s and smeared them onto your toast (I prefer brown seedy!), drizzle with a little bit of olive oil and balsamic glaze. Sprinkle with a small amount of salt and pepper. Chuck your eggs in the saucepan whilst the water is cold and set a 5 minute timer as soon as the water starts to boil. When they are done, plunge them into cold water and you should be able to peel them completely. Then, pop them on top of your avo toast. Voila, you should have perfectly soft boiled eggs atop yummy avo on toast.
Brioche French Toast
Childhood trips to my grandparents weren’t complete without a mountain of eggy bread. Specifically it needed to be thin white bread, a quick dip in the egg and plenty of ketchup. This is a little bit more luxurious than that though. Grab yourself a brioche loaf and slice off a big old chunk. I would suggest a couple of slices per person. Crack a couple of eggs in a bowl and mix, before dunking your sliced brioche in and leaving for a couple of minutes. For added sweetness, you can always add a little sugar to your eggy mix.
Fry until golden brown, whilst you crisp up some streaky bacon. Load it all up with a generous dose of maple syrup!
Cheese & Bacon Croissants
This one is SO simple, and there is something a little bit naughty about it as soon as you start mentioning “plastic” cheese. You know the one I mean. McDonalds survive on it, and a BBQ ain’t complete without it. Hear me out though, and give it a go. You HAVE to use plastic! Slice your croissants before heating, and add cooked bacon and a slice of plastic cheese. Chuck the completed masterpiece into the oven for 6 minutes and you can indulge in cheesy bacony deliciousness.
