Breakfast is no longer boring

By

Breakfast is now the most exciting meal of the day. I browsed the interweb for some weird recipes and decided to make my housemates these three most ridiculous breakfasts to help us wake up.

McMuffin and doughnut sandwich

This was a winner. Delicious meaty juices, egg and sugary bread mixing in with the surplus sugar of an iced doughnut. A hangover cure for sure. When I first heard of this ‘breakfast’ I was shocked but now I know how right it is to put a doughnut in the middle of a McMuffin.

Baked avocado egg

Get a ripe avocado (an impossible feat in itself). Then remove the stone inside by chopping it heavily with a sharp knife then twisting. Crack a raw egg into it and bake for 10 minutes at 200 °C then season and eat with a spoon. The warm avocado is a bit strange but I do love a good baked egg.

Spicy fruit with lime

This is a Mexican-inspired recipe that is very versatile. Any fruit is good; I used kiwis, pineapple, mango and strawberries. Add cayenne pepper or chilli powder to suit your taste, sea salt and the juice and zest of two limes. Be careful what type of chilli you use, by accident I used a mixed one with added cumin and oregano. Big mistake. When made properly, it’s wonderful, apparently.
