I’ve always kind of shied away from ol’ Eggs Benedict. I mean, combining egg yolks and hot butter whilst simultaneously poaching another couple of eggs to perfection is not the kind of stress I’m after on a Sunday morning. Who knows what the hell possessed me to give it a go a couple of weekends ago, but after a bit of trial and error I found a really easy way of whipping up the hollandaise sauce – and I even livened it up a bit with some lime juice and chipotle paste. Tada! Really easy, stress free and scrumptious Mexican Eggs Benny (…Benito?).
So I started making the odd smoothie bowl for breakfast as a way of rekindling my love of fruit and I’ve enjoyed making them so much that I’ve even swapped out my lunchtime egg on toast for one! They’re easy to make, can be prepped ahead of time and there are so many different flavour combinations that it’ll be a long, long time before you get bored of scoffing them. Oh, and did I mention that they’re pretty? 😉
I bloody love a good egg. We go through boxes and boxes of them in my house; I use them for baking, for brunches and lunches… and even Bungle’s a big fan – he gets a boiled egg with his dinner every night. So, with that in mind, I’ve scrambled together (…see what I did there?) five of my favourite egg recipes, from pink poached eggs to pavlova. 🙂
Bananas and Custard is one of those stupidly simple yet completely satisfying desserts, innit? Easy. Awesome. These pancakes are filled with custard, and topped with bananas. If you’ve never filled pancakes before, it’s really easy and once you’ve tried it, there’s any number of ways you could go. 🙂
What do you eat for breakfast on Christmas Day? Well, for starters, is there even time? I mean, do you shove down a couple of slices of toast and a cuppa before the kids come stampeding into the bedroom with their stockings? Do you just skip it and starve yourself knowing that you’ll be cradling a turkey-sized food baby in a few hours time? Or, do you put away the Terry’s Chocolate Orange from the bottom of your stocking whilst parked in front of The Life of Brian…
