A sweet sweet start to the day…

14 Apr

This is a big call to make, but I reckon breakfast is my all-time favourite repast of the day. Everyday.

Seriously though, I could wake up at 1pm on the weekend (it doesn’t happen often, I swear) and still feel the need to have breakfast. How people skip or forget it has me in a quandary!

I think the most wonderful thing about the concept of breakfast is that it can be hot or cold; sweet or savoury; wicked or nutritious. The options are endless. Sweet is my personal favourite… like a morning dessert! Yum!

Anyway, I’m sure you’ve got my point…In my humble opinion, breakfast is the SHIZ-NIZZLE!!! And in light of that, I thought I would share with you my Thursday morning sweet, warm breakfast delight.

Seems a little extravagant for an ordinary Thursday morning, I know, but life’s far too short for Weetbix I say!

I don’t think this one needs a recipe as such, just a list of the delicious elements that make up this stack of goodness!

– 2 slices of bread – I used Ancient Grains Sourdough Rye Fruit Nut & Seed bread from Thomas Dux – possibly the best fruit loaf I have ever tasted, but you could use any type of bread – plain sourdough would be delicious, or even just a couple of thick slices of wholegrain or wholemeal bread…

– Fresh ricotta or natural yoghurt to spread on the toast. Either is amazing. I know the idea of yoghurt on toast perplexes some, but trust me on this one…the tartness of the natural yoghurt contrasts beautifully with the sweet, soft figs.

– A couple of perfectly ripe figs

– a generous drizzle of honey

Toast the bread in a toaster, add ricotta/yoghurt, figs & honey then pop it under the grill for a minute or two to warm up the figs and honey for the best result!

Et voila, breakfast indulgence at its finest!

My figalicious fruit toast

NOTE: Put this one on top of your ‘to make’ pile because fig season won’t last too much longer!

Bonne weekend,
