Scrambled, fried, sunny side up, poached or in an omelette, eggs are a great staple for breakfast and can be found in cafe’s and homes all over the world. They can be served in a big breakfast with hash, browns, tomato, mushrooms, sausage and toast, or over a bed of spinach and salmon with fresh side ingredients. Throw your favorite chorizo, cheese and vegetables in a pan with scrambled eggs and you’ve got a tasty omelette. For on the run, pop your eggs, bacon, and spinach in a roll or toasted muffin. Eggs are so versatile and there is no limit to the dishes you can create with them.
The quickest eggs breakfast is this scrambled egg over toasted french bread and spinach salad topped with salt, pepper, Parmesan cheese, and a dash of extra virgin olive oil. You can add cooked or raw cherry tomato’s for an extra lift to the dish.

I usually have eggs on the weekend. After eating nuts, oats and smoothies all week long for breakfast I just crave some delicious eggs! My favourite combination would have to be toasted foccacia topped with a bed of spinach, a hint of rocket, and runny poached eggs. I add fresh cherry tomato’s, cracked sea salt and pepper, and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. If you’re really hungry, add smoked salmon or crispy bacon and potatoes. There’s nothing better than silky eggs paired with fresh crisp ingredients and toasted bakery style bread! Yum!
With this egg breakfast, toast the bread on a hot frying pan and set aside. While doing this bring your water with a 1/2 cup of vinegar to a low boil. Spin the water with a slotted spoon and carefully drop your eggs into the water. If you are new to poaching try do only do 1-2 eggs at a time. After 2 minutes, drain your eggs with your slotted spoon and set aside. Next layer your toast with spinach and a touch of rocket and add your tomato’s. Place poached eggs over the top of each piece of bread and sprinkle with sea salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese. Prep and cooking time (20 min).
Okay, now my mouth is really starting to water and I wish it was the weekend right now!
