This waffle, quail eggs, bacon and maple syrup breakfast was lush indeed, it was one of the best enjoyed breakfasts we’ve had in a long time, agreed and certified by hubby and kids. We don’t have breakfasts like this often but when we do, it must be thoroughly enjoyed.
With made this breakfast last Saturday and it was a teamwork with me responsible for getting the waffles and the quail eggs ready, hubby fried the bacon and kids were responsible to harvest the tomatoes freshly from the garden and wash them, the presentation of the plates which they wanted badly to do and laying the table. It was themm that did the most work (bad parents here lol). They did a pretty good job, agree? Well, I’m really proud of them.
I love weekends like this and all those family times which I’m sure children will cherish and remember for the rest of their lives. I do too, they’re priceless. The breakfast was ready in half an hour but the eating was ready in a few minutes, it all vanished in little time or no time.
This breakfast was the first timer for the kids and they thoroughly enjoyed it. They really loved the sweet-savoury combo and I never thought they would.
The combination of colours, textures, flavours was super delicious, we enjoyed every single bite of it, we all enjoyed it, but kids did enjoy it in particular. I’m sure part of their enjoyment was also fulfilled by the preparations contribution factor which surely it gives them a great sense of worthiness so the enjoyment it’s by far greater than when table is just laid by mummy when they just get the call.
Quail eggs! They are not only cute, they’re good for you too!
Yes, again quail eggs – we love those, they are so cute and so good for us! I hardly happen to have none in the fridge.
This year I was particularly lucky to find a nice lady in the neighbourhood that has quails and had plenty of eggs to share. Sadly the supply for this year it’s finished since the quails will be laying a lot less eggs as we enter the cold weather seasons so will have to wait now until the spring. Till then we will have to get them from the supermarket.
I love making wafflesbut this time I did not have to make them since I’ve had a few gluten free ones left from last weekend. Here’s a great waffle recipe for you if you wish to make them from scratch. I always change the type of flour I use. Most times I make a few batches and keep some in the freezer for next breakfast time when waffles are fancied again, it makes it really easy and the waffles taste as good as the freshly made ones if frozen immediately after cooling.
It will become obvious in few seconds when you will be reading all the ingredients in this recipe that a couple of them thrown in here are quite controversial ingredients. You must know me by now and how I love combining ingredients (madness) but I have to say this combination worked a treat, a real treat indeed and…we will make it again without changing a thing!
I must always add in any recipe at least two healthy ingredients so we benefit more from that particular meal even if it’s not appearing as being the healthiest one at first sight. It is a treat at the end of the day, right?
I’m going to have to start revealing those ingredients for this lush breakfast, so let’s just get making it. Easy peazzle maple drizzle!
Fry the bacon in a pan - I like some crispy bits here and there.
Fry the eggs in a nonstick pan greased with a puff of coconut oil spray
Toast the waffles and then plate the ingredients by topping the waffles with the bacon, the eggs and serve with a drizzle of maple syrup, a scatter of pesto sauce and a generous sprinkle of sunflower seeds and tomatoes.
* Bacon - we always try and get this in the best form and that’s the organic way and most importantly the bacon that’s containing no nitrites and no E numbers. * Here is a great recipe for home-made homemade pesto sauce. I really hope you will enjoy this breakfast as much as we do.
