With all the additional time spent at home, this is the perfect opportunity to try new and exciting recipes. Take your food game up a notch by starting with the most important meal of the day: breakfast. Here are three delicious but easy-to-follow recipes that will definitely elevate your morning nosh.
Instead of scrambled eggs, try a spinach and mushroom omelette
Gordon Ramsay’s scrambled eggs recipe may live up to the hype, but it’s time to try something new. Whip up your very own spinach and mushroom omelette, which is far more nutritious thanks to the addition of vegetables. Pro tip: throw in plenty of shredded white and red cheddar for that extra cheesy flavour. Watch how to make it here.
If ham and cheese sandwiches are too easy, make a croque madame
It’s not the best time to head to France, but you can travel vicariously through your meals. So get creative with a croque madame instead of your regular breakfast sandwiches. Add thinly sliced pieces of ham and gruyere cheese to two pieces of buttered toasts before placing them in the oven till the cheese melts. Take the sandwich out, lather the top with bechamel sauce, then pop it in the oven for one last bake sesh. Finally, finish it off with a sunny side up. Learn how to make the sandwich here.
Goodbye regular pancakes, hello banana oatmeal pancakes
Way more tasty than regular pancakes, banana oatmeal pancakes are so worth the effort. Mash up two bananas, add in two large eggs, and combine them before adding a touch of vanilla extract and cinnamon powder. Next, process your rolled oats using a blender. Mix both batches together with baking powder and salt, and you’re ready to put your mixture on the pan with a dab of coconut oil. Each piece of pancake takes a minute or two on each side. Serve with syrup and fruit; check out this video for the full recipe.
