Welcome to this month’s recipe featuring a collection of breakfast recipes developed by my husband Olaf who doesn’t like to spend any more than 5 minutes in the morning making breakfast. So, rest assured, they are very easy, very quick and nutritious and not only for blokes of course! I really like how he makes sure he has some protein and good essential fats in each of the meals and a little bit of green!
Bloke’s Breakfast Recipes
Eggs in a basket
Avocado and coriander and sweetcorn
Method – Slice the bread and cut out a hole in the middle. Put in the frying pan and toast on one side. Flip over and crack the egg into the hole. Cook for 3-4 minutes and serve with some avocado/sweetcorn/whatever is in the fridge.
Mediterranean breakfast medley
Tinned mackerel in tomato sauce
Method – Melt a little butter or coconut oil in a frying pan. Crack 2 or 3 eggs into a bowl and whisk. Add to the frying pan and after 30 seconds add a tablespoon of pesto and scramble. Whilst this is cooking open the tin of mackerel and put on the plate and cut open the avocado, score into cubes and scoop out with a spoon. Then add the scrambled eggs to the plate when they are done.
