Seven Breakfasts

1: Grilled Maple Bacon, Chopped Walnuts and Bananas on toast.  It feels wrong, I know.  But oh so right…

You’ll never catch me skipping out on breakfast.  EVER.  Nor am I one of those breakfast bar/biscuit people (are you crazy?!).  See, my stomach seems to be inhabited by a noisy monster with a beast-like appetite and he’d never let me get away with not feeding him first thing in the morning… and he doesn’t grumble, he GROWLS.

Yeah, I love breakfast.  So here are seven of my current favourite go-tos when I’ve got the time to treat my stomach monster. 🙂

2: Natural Yoghurt with Cinnamon, Chopped Mango, Granola and Honey.  American Supermarket chain ‘Publix’ does little pots of Cinnamon Bun Flavoured yoghurt – which is so good! – I got hooked on the stuff on honeymoon and now I always add cinnamon to my yoghurt.
3. Dippy Egg and Soldiers – which I sometimes have for lunch too 🙂
4. Breakfast Burritos with cheese, bacon, chorizo, spiced peppers and tomatoes and scrambled egg.  These are so easy to make ahead of time and freeze, and they’re also a total crowd-pleaser.
5: Mushrooms and Spinach on Toast.  It’s the sort of breakfast you’d expect the Animals of Farthing Wood to have scoffed before they went off on their long journey to create the most scarring kids show that was ever created.
6. Porridge with chopped bananas, walnuts, honey and a lot of Nutella.  Here’s a confession: I was late to the Nutella party, so I’ve been making up for lost time.  I don’t eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon… much.
7. Huevos Rancheros with flaming breakfast potatoes, refried beans and unintentionally cremated bacon. Back in 2009 I travelled across Arizona with my family – and it just so happened to coincide with the start of my love of spicy Southern cooking.  I ate Huevos Rancheros for breakfast on our first morning in Phoenix and loved it.  I eat a lo-hot of Mexican food nowadays.

What’s your favourite go-to breakfast? 🙂

There’s some really great breakfast ideas here! I’m loving the sound of a breakfast burrito, although I think I’d have to wait until after 10am to eat it haha.

My breakfast faves are separated into two categories; weekday breakfasts and weekend breakfasts.

Weekdays I’ll normally have porridge or weetabix topped with banana. On weekends I love pancakes with bacon and maple syrup or dippy eggs and toast – YUM! xx

Breakfast Burritos are great, but so, so filling! Best for days when you’re planning on hiking up Everest or something! 🙂

Weekend breakfasts are the best kind of breakfast!


These sound so so good! I like the idea of cinnamon flavoured yoghurt, am definitely going to have to try that combination. I’m currently on a corn flakes binge which I just can’t get enough of for the moment, then I’ll probably end up on a bran flakes high for a little while afterwards! I cannot start my day without eating anything, I just get way too grumpy which is definitely not productive for work!

[…] Getting up that little bit earlier and taking the time to have a nice breakfast is such a nice way to start your morning. There’s nothing like a good breakfast to set you up for the day! My breakfast of choice at the moment is tinned peaches with yoghurt and granola. If you’re feeling more adventurous, Nia at The Cardiff Cwtch has some great ideas. […]
