I absolutely love eating breakfast out at different cafes. I think breakfast foods are the tastiest! Having them cooked for you and served with a lovely flat white is such an indulgent way to start the weekend. It’s hard to not have a bad day after a start like that; however, I often think, ‘I could easily recreate something like this at home for a quarter of the price’. If you’re like me and have found yourself thinking the same thing, here’s a recipe I created based on lots of delicious breakfasts I have enjoyed at various cafes for you to try at home!
My hubby and I love our tradition of bacon and eggs every weekend. It’s such a satisfying filling breakfast. We usually have our bacon and eggs with one of these sides, plus sometimes a green smoothie. These sides are way more nutrient-packed than a slice of bread and a lot tastier too!
Side 1) Kale torn into small pieces, sliced mushrooms and cherry tomatoes sautéed for 5 minutes over medium heat in butter. Top with himalayan salt.
