I miss my porridge, It cant be helped, but until recently I could not find anything to replace it with, and so have resorted to scrambled eggs every day for breakfast. As I am not an egg-lover, I can't say that I always enjoy it. However, son 2 has recently started having breakfast with Husband at an earlier time, leaving me just making scrambled egg for myself and something in me decided to try a variation. What I came up with is surprising delcious - well I think so!
Eggs are a good choice for breakfast
Eggs are easy for breakfast - they cook quickly - a real fast food, and are also very nutricious, especially if they are from hens that are free to roam in pasture.
I put my beaten eggs along with a small quanitity of frozen raspberries and a dash of milk kefir into a pan with a knob of melted butter, and stirred, until the egg began to solidify, but took it off the heat before it properly scrambled. I poured it into a bowl, stuck in an extravagant spoonful of raw honey, topped it with dessicated coconut and sour cream and....took the first mouthful.
It was warm, cozy, creamy and surprisingly, just like porridge in texture - only with eggy lumps rather than oaty lumps.
Now it is my every day staple!!
And so I though I would share it with you, just in case anyone else fancies trying it out!
It only takes minutes to make!
Any frozen fruit can be used - or even cocoa powder!
Any milk or milk substitute can be used if you want dairy free.
The butter can be replaced with coconut oil.
The coconut could be replaced with home-made granola.
