Breakfast Club

Sorry everyone for how long it’s taken me to post the latest Breakfast Club roundup! I started university a couple of months ago, as well as taking on a new temporary job and working my current voluntary jobs as well. The result – busy but happy, but unfortunately something had to give and that was the blog.

Obviously my social life has taken a bit of a knock too as I spend most of my spare time with my head in a text book. That means not quite so many restaurants and cocktail evenings, and a bit more student food on the menu. I’m pretty good at recreating McCain spicy potato wedges from scratch now, a skill I could probably do without.

Anyway, I’ll still be posting here, but less often as I’m turning down most of the invitations I’m getting at the moment. Expect a lot of nutritious homemade soups over the winter, until uni finishes for the summer and normal transmission will probably resume.

This is going to be the last Breakfast Club from me for a while – Helen will be running it on her own for the time being. Remember to mention your favourite in the comments below to enter the competition for the Kellogg’s hamper. Breakfast Club entrants automatically get five entries.

It was interesting seeing how everyone interpreted the theme, especially as we had such an international bunch of entrants.

Lizzie from Grub du Jour prepared a No-Fuss English Breakfast, saving on washing up by cooking everything in the same dish.

Akheela from Torview made French Toast. I love French toast.

Janet from The Taste Space ate some Whipped Banana Oatmeal with Cranberries for a sort of fusion Scottish-Asian-American breakfast. That is possibly the prettiest picture of porridge I have ever seen.


Matt from FOODFORFRIENDSYEAH! entered his Scrambled Eggs and Smoked Salmon. A classic combination.


Liz from Cooking the Vegan Books made some Staffordshire Oatcakes, which I would love to try.


Finally (or actually firstly, as I actually received the entries in reverse order), the blogless P.J. Owen sent the following recipe:

one oatcake
half a banana
a teaspoon of honey

Microwave the oatcake for 30 seconds
Cover one half of an oatcake with slices of banana.
Spread honey on the other half of the oatcake
Fold over.

And my entry was of course crumpets.

  1. I agree it can be hard to juggle everything sometime but good food shouldn’t stop. Blogging about it can be put on hold. Only the best recipes will be shared. 🙂

    Love the round-up and all the breakfast treats. I have a hankering for Scrambled Eggs and Smoked Salmon after seeing Matt’s pic, though! 🙂

  2. Hello! I’m having the same problem with time! Thanks for featuring my recipe for scrambled eggs and smoked salmon.

    Enjoyed it again at the weekend. YUM!

  3. It’s always hard to find time to blog- just see it as a challenge or a change of direction. Bring on the student food and soups!

    The staffordshire oatcakes look great- I may have to try them. Always good to uncover regional specialities.

  4. My favourite entry is the scrambled eggs and salmon, a worthy favourite. I like to garnish mine with a little dill.

    My favourite British breakfast is anything involving eggs, fried tomato and black pudding.

    May favourite breakfast of all time is eggs benedict. The origin of that dish is debatable, but it is most likely French.
