We actually cannot believe that Christmas has come around so quickly, how are we already thinking about what we are going to eat for breakfast on Christmas morning, its mad. We did however think it would be the perfect opportunity to share with you a little recipe that will help start your Christmas morning, nothing fancy just keeping v simple, v quick and most importantly vv tasty.
Christmas breakfast has always been quite a big deal in our households, we always start our Christmas with a super yummy breakfast and a glass or two of champagne. Christmas Day always revolves around food and every meal has got that extra bit of magic added to it usually in the form of champagne in our houses. We have therefore decided to jazz up our breakfast up this year to make it that little bit more special and went for waffles topped with cream cheese and smoked salmon YASSS! If you wanted to you could even shape the waffles into snowflakes or Christmas trees!
recipe below makes 5 waffle so double or tripple the recipe if you have more mouths to feed.
125g Plain Flour
½ tsp Caster Sugar
½ tsp Baking Powder
¾ tsp Mustard Powder
¼ tsp Smoked Paprika
½ tsp ground pepper
65g Unsalted butter
2 Medium eggs
Place the flour, sugar, baking powder, mustard powder, paprika, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl.
Mix until all ingredients are combined
In a separate bowl, whisk the milk, butter and eggs.
Make a well in the dry mix, and pour the wet mix into it gradually, whisking until fully combined
Leave the batter on the side for 5 minutes
Switch the Waffle Maker on and lightly oil, close the lid and allow the waffle machine to heat up
Once the waffle maker is hot enough pour the mixture into the centre of each waffle
Close the lid and leave to cook for 4 minutes, without opening the lid
Open the lid of the machine carefully and remove the waffle
Repeat with the remaining batter and keep the rest of them warm in the oven on a wire rack to ensure they do not become soggy
Jersey has some delicious breakfast spots and as you know we are breakfast lovers so we had to include them in a speedster blog post! (We didn’t go to them all during this stay but we have sampled the menu on previous trips). Jersey folk have always gone out for breakfast it has been the thing to do way before the trend set in the UK.
La Braye- We visited La Braye for the first time during our visit and the food was so delicious. There was lots of choice on the menu and I was spoilt for choice. I was considering going for the porridge but thought I should probably try something different seeing as I eat porridge almost every morning at home. I opted for the smoked salmon and scrambled egg which was so tasty. The crushed avocado on toast also looked amazing so I definitely know what to order next time.
El tico Beach Cantino- We loved El Tico when we visited back in May but we didn’t get the chance to visit this time around. The food is amazing and the portion sizes are incredibly generous. They serve full English breakasts, porridge with a selection of toppings, granola, pancakes, cinnamon toast and the list goes on and on. The view from El Tico is stunning as it looks out onto St Ouen’s bay where you can watch the surfers surf the waves.
Colleens- this is a relaxed beach cafe, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Colleens cafe is located in St Ouen’s and it is only a stone throw away from the beautiful golden sanded beach. You can dine both inside and outside if the weather is on your side. This is definitely a firm favourite of ours and pancakes were delicious.
Nude Food- We haven’t actually eaten in Nude foods but we popped in at the weekend as we wanted an iced coffee. Unfortunately they didn’t sell iced coffee but whilst we were in there we happened to notice how delicious the menu looked. It was a fitness bloggers heaven the menu was full of healthy and wholesome brunch foods.
MOO- This trendy spot can be found in St Hellier just off of the main highstreet. We would say this place is best if you want to take your smoothie or shake away as it is quite small inside. The smoothies they have on offer look delicious and they would be the perfect post workout refuel.
