The Brunch Bunch

Monday again - where on earth did the weekend go!? Only one thing for it, get planning next weekend and what better place to start than breakfasts to be gobbled up in a duvet cocoon...

So here's three scrum recipes to give you a little brekspiration!


Baked Eggs in Portobello Mushrooms

Ingredients

2 Portobello Mushrooms

2 Eggs

Couple of Cherry Tomatoes 

Feta 

Parmesan grated



This is the perfect breakfast in bed meal. Hop up and grab your dressing gown. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Take two mushrooms and scoop out a little of the inside if you need to make some extra room. Put the mushrooms in a baking tray. Chop up your cherry tomatoes and scatter inside the mushrooms. Crack an egg into each mushroom. Crumble the feta and scatter it over the eggs and then top with a sprinkle of parmesan. Bake in the oven until the eggs are set. Climb back into bed and devour with a cup of strong coffee and a good book. 

Shakshuka

Ingredients
1 onion finely chopped
1 red pepper thinly sliced
3 cloves of garlic crushed
4 Eggs
1 tsp Ground Cumin
1 tsp Paprika
Pinch of Cayenne Pepper
1 jar of Pasata
2 tsp of Tomato Paste
Feta 
Handful of Coriander
Handful of Mint


This was inspired by sun soaked brunches in Sydney - the most scrumptious brunch best eaten straight out of the pan. Preheat the oven to 180 C. While you're waiting for it to warm up, take a frying pan and gently fry the onion and pepper until its soft. Add the garlic and fry for another couple of minutes. Now add the cumin, paprika and cayenne and cook for a minute. Pour in the pasata and add the tomato paste, season and let the sauce simmer away for ten minutes. Stir in half the crumbled feta. Use a spoon to make four little dips in the sauce and crack an egg into each. Scatter the rest of the crumbled feta across the top of the pan. Put the pan in the oven and bake until the eggs have set. Pull out and top with the chopped fresh herbs. Serve with big hunks of bread for dipping.


Overnight Protein Oats


Ingredients

50g Greek Yoghurt

100ml Almond Milk

1 Apple Grated

1 scoop of Vanilla Protein Powder

pinch of Ground Cinnamon

50g Rolled Oats

Handful of Blueberries

Scattering of Grated Orange Zest





This delicious and super easy breakfast is borrowed from the Body Coach and is our new post-training meal. The night before you want to have this for breakfast put all the ingredients except the blueberries and orange zest in a big bowl. Mix it all up and then pop it in the fridge overnight. In the morning pop it in a bowl and top with blueberries and a scattering of orange zest.
