Bacon Naan

Bacon Naan

This is one of my favourite twists on the classic bacon sandwich! It was something that myself and my husband first discovered on a weekend away for our first wedding anniversary. When we re-create it at home it takes me back to that fabulous (child-free) weekend we had. It has now become my go to for a special occasion breakfast.

You Will Need

1 pack large garlic and coriander naan breads

1 pack smoked streaky bacon (or whichever cut you prefer)

2 tbsp Ketchup

½ tsp cumin

Method

Cook the bacon as per the cooking instructions until you have your desired crispiness.

Heat the naan breads as per the packet instructions.

Mix the cumin into the ketchup and place in a small serving pot.

Place the bacon onto the naan break and fold. Serve immediately with the accompanying sauce on the side.

Other Ideas

If you don’t want to use a naan bread, any kind of flatbread would work as a suitable substitute.

You also don’t have to use garlic and coriander, you can substitute the flavour for whichever is your preferred choice.

Breakfast Sundae

Breakfast Sundae

Dress your breakfast up and make it fancy! This is a really tasty twist on a simple yogurt and granola breakfast. Pack it with fruit or keep it simple, either way it is delicious! The great thing about this dish is that you can easily tailor it to any taste preference.

You Will Need

All quantities of these ingredients will differ depending on how much or how little you want to include in your dish.

Fruit yogurt (whichever flavour is preferred) I used a smooth low fat strawberry yogurt.

Granola (whichever flavour is preferred) I used a low sugar apple and blueberry granola.

Chopped fruit (whichever flavour is preferred) I used bananas on this occasion.

Method

Make sure that the fruit you have chosen is chopped into small bitesize pieces.

You will need either a tall glass, clear plastic cup or if you have them, an ice cream sundae glass.

To layer the ingredients, start with the granola. On top of this put a spoonful of yogurt, followed by a sprinkle of the chopped fruit.

Repeat the layering process until you have reached your desired number of layers.

Finish off with a final scoop of yogurt and a raspberry (or any berry of your choice)

ENJOY!

Other Ideas

You could go as big or as small as you want on this dish.

Make it tropical by using chunks of pineapple or mango and a coconut yogurt.

You could also make this dish with porridge oats or muesli instead of granola for a slightly less crunchy texture.

Superstar Eggy Bread

Superstar Eggy Bread

This makes for a great Saturday or Sunday morning breakfast. I love it mostly because it is something my dad used to make for me and that his mam made for him. It definitely takes me back to when I was a kid. An added bonus is that it is cheap and easy to make. Winner!

You Will Need

2 Large Eggs

2 Slices of bread (any flavour)

2 Tbsp Milk

1 tsp Cinnamon

Star and circle shaped biscuit cutter

Strawberries and Blueberries (as many as you want)

Icing sugar to serve

Method

Whisk the eggs, milk, and cinnamon together in a wide bowl.

Cut out two stars and two circles from the slices of bread.

Soak the stars on both sides in the egg mixture. Transfer the soaked bread from the bowl to a non-stick frying pan and fry on both sides until golden. Repeat this process again for the circles.  

Once cooked, stack a star on top of a circle and position on a plate with chopped strawberries and blueberries.

Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve.

Other Ideas

To prevent waste, try using the off-cuts from the bread and make eggy bread bites by chopping them into chunks, coating them in the egg mixture and frying.

If you don’t have a star or circle cutter you can soak a whole slice of bread into the mix and chop into fingers, squares or triangles once cooked.

You can also mix it up by trying different flavours, substitute the cinnamon for nutmeg or ginger to try something new. You could also serve the eggy bread with a dollop of Nutella to make it a bit naughtier.

You can also serve this dish with a selection of fruits. Try making it more tropical by serving pineapple, mango, and kiwi. You could even sprinkle the dish with desiccated coconut instead of icing sugar for a real tropical twist!
