For me, one of the greatest advantages of home educating has been not having to rush around like crazy to get everyone out the door in the morning. A more relaxed start means more time for breakfast. More time for breakfast means more chance to experiment. Cereal and toast for breakfast is a distant memory from a time gone by. In our house, we like to start the day with some quality protein, and maybe even *gasp* a vegetable or two.
Here’s what we had this morning. Local free range eggs scrambled in butter and served with mushrooms, peppers and red onion sauteed in ghee:
We have also tried Paleo Girl’s twice baked cauli-tots, and they went down well.
Another family favourite are latkes made with either grated sweet potato, courgette (that’s zucchini to my American friends) or both. These are best topped with a slice of bacon and a poached egg:
Yesterday, I stumbled across this recipe for a cauliflower “porridge”, so I think we might have to give that a try soon.
Any new ideas for using vegetables at breakfast would be warmly welcomed 🙂
