For all the novel recipes we try here in the where's the beef? kitchen, we are pretty unadventurous when it comes to breakfast. Yes, we like eating fancy things while out and Vegan Brunch has provided inspiration on the odd weekend, but we break our workday fast with startling monotony. Michael always, always eats Weetbix topped with muesli and milk (though he made the transition from dairy to soy in the last year or so). I tend towards cereal too, chugging through box after box of Just Right, occasionally mixing it up with a day or two of toast.
It's not right at all, really. I've had a few shots making my own muesli or porridge or smoothies and these have amused me for up to a month at a time. But I'm keen to push my breakfast boundaries a little further - hence this new Breakfast Serial. My Friends In Food have already come through with a bunch of great suggestions via twitter but sling me more if you've got 'em! I'm hoping to give a new one a go every couple of weeks and, of course, record them here.
My first entry is well within my comfort zone - sarahcooks and veggie_mama both recommended avocado on toast. I like lathering the avocado on thickly then topping it with salt, pepper and lemon juice; even better if there's a glass of fruit juice on the side. It's easy to prepare and adequately filling. Avocados aren't always abundant and ripe when you want 'em but this is a great option when they are. I can't imagine committing to this daily and indefinitely but avocado on toast is an excellent option to have in my weekday brekkie repertoire.
