Halloumi & Sweetcorn Fritter Stack
What I Ate For Breakfast is the breakfast queen, and she has perfected incredible looking stacks! The beauty of these fritters is that you don’t just have to eat them at brunch, they’re delicious at any time of day. I chopped halloumi into small cubes and mixed with sweetcorn, egg, salt and pepper before frying in batches and topping with an egg and a side of spinach and tomato, to make a yummy brinner!
Cheese & Beans Potato Cake
Another What I Ate For Breakfast speciality is a filled potato cake. This is made from cooking a potato and scooping out the filling, adding a little bit of flour and some seasoning and splitting into little cakes. However many cakes your mix makes (aim for 6), split grated cheese amongst half of them (3) and then add some warm beans before pressing another (unfilled) potato cake on top. Make sure the edges are sealed and then fry until they’re crisp and the cheese has melted.
Halloumi & Smoky Bacon Hash
This is a recipe I stole from A Pinch of Nom and makes for a filling brunch. Fry off chopped potatoes, bacon and pepper before adding tomatoes, paprika and garlic. Throw in some tomato puree, Worcester sauce and a touch of water, then add spinach and halloumi (previously cooked). Top the hash with a fried egg and some salt and pepper (and if you’re me, balsamic glaze).
If you’re looking for healthy, yet tasty recipes for any time of the day Sophie Lyburn (@sophiecavefit) is your gal. I made my pizza from a tortilla, but you can also use a pitta, like Sophie did. I liked the sound of the sausage and spinach one, so I spread some tomato puree on the wrap, added 2 (cooked and chopped) Heck chicken sausages and cracked an egg in the middle. I popped this into the oven and just before the egg was ready, I added a sprinkling of cheese. Then I topped some sliced spinach and balsamic glaze before tucking in. You could also fry the egg separately and add to the top of the pizza after it’s been grilled.
This was a Jamie Oliver special that I decided to make for Shrove Tuesday, to add a savoury touch to the evening. The pancake is made with spinach, egg, flour and milk (but I used water instead), but before you make the pancake build your avocado salad. Chop avocado, tomatoes and mix with spinach, spring onion and coriander. Squeeze some lime juice and add salt and pepper. Cook your pancake and top with the avocado salad and some cottage cheese.
Banana & Cacao Pancake
I’m usually a savoury over sweet kind of girl, but Alice Liveing shared a giant banana and cacao pancake that I just had to make. The recipe consists of 1 banana, 2 scoops of cacao, 2 eggs and a splash of milk. I chose to top mine with more banana, strawberries, peanut butter & mixed seeds; a quick and tasty breakfast!
Pancakes & FroYo
These pancakes I made from 1 banana, 2 scoops of chocolate protein powder, 2 eggs and a splash of milk. This time I also made my own FroYo, by mixing natural yoghurt with some vanilla protein powder and freezing it. I then added a scoop to the top of my pancakes, with some peanut butter and raspberries.
