My Breakfast Diaries

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and with some time-management it’s not difficult to cook-up a deliciously satisfying and healthy breakfast. On several occasions I have been asked, what are the various foods you prepare for breakfast.  I have also heard many times ‘I don’t know what to make for breakfast’ or ‘what can you make for breakfast?’ This post is for all you lovely people and there should be no excuse for ‘I don’t know what to make for breakfast’! Stay tuned…

I spend almost an hour and a half to two hours in the kitchen each morning before I leave for work (that’s because I am an early riser!). But you’ll don’t need to do that.  With a little bit of planning, most of the recipes can be prepared ahead and completed in the morning within the least amount of time .

Any cooking to be delicious requires to be made with a lot of patience and love…so we begin with the time-honoured ‘heart-shaped’ symbol of love!

TOAD IN A HOLE1Toad in a hole step7 18Jun15


  • 4 Slices bread
  • 4 Eggs
  • Butter as required
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Cookie cutter (heart-shaped or any desired shape)
  1. Butter the bread slices on both sides. Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut-out the centre of the bread slices to form a hole. Get creative and use any cookie cutter shape.  If you don’t have a cookie cutter just cut-out  a round or square shape using a knife.
  2. Place the bread slices, two at a time in a frying pan (depending on the size of the pan) and lightly brown on both sides.
  3. Crack one egg per slice into the bread hole and cook on slow flame until the white of the egg is completely set.
  4. Sprinkle with pepper and salt to taste. If you wish to have it well fried, turn the bread slice carefully and cook till the egg is well-done.
