Quick and easy breakfast ideas

Feel like something different for breakfast? Here are a couple of really quick and easy ways to ring the changes.

Tired of scrambled eggs? Can't bear to look at plain toast again? A good breakfast sets you up for a wonderful day, a bad one sends you to the office in  a sad, grumpy heap. Give a few of these suggestions a go to keep your breakfasts interesting and delicious.

  • Grill soft eating apricots, stir into natural yoghurt and add some pumpkin seeds.
     
  • Top a slice of wholegrain toast with slices of ripe avo and a soft poached egg.
     
  • Roast halved ripe tomatoes with olive oil and thyme. Enjoy on rye bruschetta.
     
  • Mix together chunks of sweet melon with granola and orange flower water.
     
  • Mix quartered ripe figs into softened butter with a little icing sugar until combined then spread over fluffy ricotta flapjacks.
     
  • Top mini buckwheat flapjacks with a spoonful of chocolate spread and sprinkle with chopped walnuts and juicy, chopped-up fruits in season.
     
  • Pan-fry wood-smoked bacon until crispy and golden and serve on toasted crumpets with a dollop of creamed honey.
     
  • Poach stone fruits in verjuice and cinnamon, slice and arrange over double-thick greek yoghurt on a stack of pancakes before sprinkling with cinnamon sugar.
  • For a soothing, flu-fighting winter drink combine lemon juice, a dollop of honey, sliced fresh ginger, a cinnamon stick and hot water. Stir with a lemon-grass stick.
