How about instead of dipping toast ‘soldiers’ in your boiled egg, you dip a rasher of bacon – yum! Takes guests by surprise!

Cook a rasher or two of bacon per egg to your liking.

Boil an egg or two per person to your desired runniness.

Cut off top of egg and dip bacon in the yolk.

Grilled Peaches and Plums Drizzled with Honey

Another one for the BBQ (or grill pan). One peach and one large plum serves 2 people (must be nice and ripe). Fruit should be brushed with extra virgin olive oil so it doesn’t stick. Spatula best thing for turning over. Equally lovely warm or cold and drizzled with raw honey (not suitable for children under one it says on the back of my raw honey)photo - grilled fruits

Vegetarian Breakfast

Vegetarian Breakfast

Who says vegetarians can’t have a good old fry up for breakfast? Instead of the traditional scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon try a poached egg with tomato halves and Portobello mushroom slices (cooked in a frying pan in a little seasoned extra virgin olive oil) and half an avocado, thinly sliced. A lovely way to start the day!

Citrus Breakfast Salad (4)

photo - Citrus Breakfast Salad

This is a winter fruit salad as it is the time when the citrus fruits are in peak season and tangerines/clementines are easily available. Using a pink grapefruit instead of a regular grapefruit makes the salad less tart.

1 pink grapefruit

2 oranges

2 – 3 tangerines/clementines

Peel the fruit and cut into segments over a bowl (so you can catch the juices). If necessary cut the segments in half. Place in a serving dish with the juices.

Take one pink grapefruit, two oranges and 3 tangerines/clementines. Cut the fruits into segments, halving if necessary. Do this on a plate so you can add in the juices.



Dippy Eggs with Avocado ‘Soldiers’

Dippy Eggs with Avocado Soldiers

Loved dipping brown toast into eggs at breakfast back in the day and there was maybe some marmite involved too! (no idea why pieces of toast were called ‘soldiers’) This is a great way to start you day and incredibly healthy. My eggs come from the Farmer’s Market and are sometimes only 3 days away from the hen house. Boil your eggs how you like it – it is a precise subject and varies with stove top heat etc. so I’ll stay out of this. Take a nice ripe avocado – not too ripe – and cut it into slices that can fit into your egg. The dip away!
