Treat your mother to cheesy scrambled eggs and ramp toast this Sunday.
Marinara poached eggs with sausage is a very comforting meal, ideal for those mornings when perhaps you went too far the night before.
This dish gives you protein in the form of eggs and sausage in oodles of marinara sauce high in vitamin C. It’s so good.
Who doesn’t love brunch on a Saturday or Sunday? I usually opt for eggs for brunch with some sort of breakfast meat or fish. There are times though, when I avoid eating meat. Not often, but there are times. On those days potato zucchini frittata works a treat.
Finding a great hangover breakfast or brunch is always difficult when in need. Now I’m not recommending you overdo it with the drinking, but if you do, beef and sweet potato hash is an expert recovery meal. It’s lean, nourishing and above all, gosh darn tasty.
Simple, aromatic, and most critical – flippin tasty! That’s how I would describe ramp baked eggs if you were to ask me. It’s a delicious start to the day that everyone should try.
Today’s recipe is a quick and easy, a have anytime dish – tuna and kale quiche. I’ve made this quiche so many times; I think I’ve made it close to ten times in the last three months. My friends love it, they start to hover over it as soon as I remove it from the oven. It’s great anytime, so it doesn’t really last very long.
Smoked salmon scramble on toast is such a nice meal for breakfast or bunch on the weekend. It feels like a treat, and you need to treat yourself at some point during the week. If you’re like me you treat yourself a lot, which to me means this smoked salmon scramble will be in strong rotation.
I’m going back to my roots. My British roots that is, so I’ve prepared a typically British breakfast, but with a twist – bacon eggs and beans in a bagel basket. The twist being the bagel basket of course.
I remember as a child praying that my mother wouldn’t insist that I eat that green slimy thing she called avocado pear. Many folks in the Caribbean refer to the avocado as pear due to the shape of the fruit. When I was a kid, I thought it to be a bland heave-worthy tasting veggie that should be avoided at all cost. I had no idea that it was a fruit or how wonderful it truly tasted and the benefits it brought to my aging body. Now avocado is featured in so many of my foods, I revel in its luxurious taste and happy to let its nutrients do its work on my body. So today I made some avocado toast with poached egg.
A sensational first meal for the day. I sat to eat it on my terrace with a mimosa (or two) and my Kindle. I’m reading “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen R. Covey. I’ve just started reading it – so no opinion as yet. There is no better way to spend a Sunday morning, eating a nutritious meal and reflecting on life’s possibilities.
Steak and eggs, a self-indulgent brunch, which in my view should be preceded or followed by a brisk run, but a great meal nonetheless. I have only been eating steak and eggs for the past say, 5 years. Its not a meal that was offered that much in London. The English are more drawn to the regular bacon and eggs, but with baked beans. Yes, baked beans! Yum. I used to add butter to my baked beans and some slivers of yellow onion, but I digress. I promise to feature a typically British “brekkie” some time soon.
As I mentioned, steak and eggs isn’t a meal I was brought up on, but I do enjoy it once in a while, when its made well – a choice cut of steak being primary. For my recipe today I used antibiotic free local harvest Angus sirloin steak – a fabulous piece of meat, tender and juicy. There are many that would go for a piece of skirt steak when making steak and eggs, but I really feel sirloin melds way better with eggs than skirt. Its a slightly denser cut of meat but still has the ability to melt in your mouth, so long as you buy a decent cut of meat. I must have ketchup with my steak and eggs, but is never enough for me just on its own I have to have my chimichurri sauce made with fresh parsley and garlic. I slice a piece of meat, dip it in the chimichurri sauce, then dip it in the ketchup then load up the fork with eggs – ayyyy!
You may be wondering what the chips piled on top of my steak and eggs are. They’re taro chips very thinly sliced using a mandolin and fried in a deep fryer for only a minute. Taro is known for its health benefits such as lowering blood sugar and blood pressure, improving digestion and circulation, protecting the skin and boosting vision health and, is purported to combat certain cancers and can even be used to draw out carcinogenic toxins when made into a plaster. A pretty impressive root vegetable – right? I grew up on Taro, or as my mother would call it, dasheen. My mother used to boil it and then mash it up with some milk and a little butter and give it to me when I was a baby #myfirstmeal! I don’t have any recipes featuring taro right now, but I promise to rectify that. Taros deserve a recipe.
So back to my steak and eggs. Give it a try. Make it as a celebratory brunch, a date brunch with a worthy fellow or gal, or just because, you’ll love it.
