I thought this week I would share a breakfast that didn’t have eggs in it. I’ll admit I had to rack my brains, I do love eggs.
So I thought a few years back to my best ever porridge (oatmeal).
This happened for me in 2008. I was working as a hiking guide on the Overland track in Tasmania, it’s such a beautiful walk down there. A 6 day bush walk, the clients carried only the clothes they needed for the 6 days, whereas I carried all emergency supplies, my clothes, bedding, first aid kits, fresh food etc. My pack was huge.
The work didn’t stop there, in the evenings one of the guides would run to the hut where we would sleep and start to prepare afternoon tea and a three course meal.
In the morning one of the leaders would stay behind, tidy up the hut and then run (with a full pack on) and catch up to the group.
So to make the mornings easier we would soak the oats over night and then it would be quick and ready to go in the morning.
We would put in enough oats for all the people (about 1/2 a cup per person), the left over sweetened cream from dessert, any dried fruit that we could get out hands on (I’ve been using apricots and currents) and then for some added crunch I put sunflower seeds and pepitas.
In the morning it was a simple as adding a little extra water and putting it on the stove to heat up.
On top I just put a little cinnamon and brown sugar.
What’s your favourite egg free breakfast?
