Breakfast of Champions

Lately I have been obsessing a bit about how to organise myself and the kids in the mornings to ensure that we all get a good breakfast. Cereal or toast with a glass of milk just doesn't seem like enough to keep us all going until lunch time so we have started getting up a bit earlier and cooking our favourite brekkies. These include Green Eggs and Ham (eggs scrambled with pesto or basil oil and served with bacon); boiled eggs with little soldiers; french toast with fresh strawberry sauce and buttermilk pancakes with blueberries.

I know that I am not alone in trying to pull off this magic trick and I recently found some good tips here. I've also found some inspiration in this Epicure article about breakfast in Melbourne. Some of the dishes I'm hoping to add to my repertoire are:

  • Brekky Buritto from Las Chicas

  • Corn fritters with bacon, tomato relish and sour cream from Mart 130

  • Roasted roma tomatoes seasoned with chilli, garlic, cinnamon, brown sugar and white vinegar from Birdman Eating

  • Baklava french toast from Demitri's Feast

I might even try my hand at the semolina pancakes with rose jam, pistachios and a sprinkling of edible Persian rose petals!

What's your favourite breakfast dish?


  1. I used to be so good at making a proper breakfast, and then I discovered my breakfast is often a cup of coffee with a biscuit. I am trying to improve though! I love hardboiled eggs, and fresh bread with homemade jam, and porridge when the weather is cold.
    So how many of the fancy brekkies have you tried to make by now? :-)

  2. You know what? I am still struggling a bit as it seems old habits die hard. Having said that your pear jam is going down a treat.
