Some of you might be thinking that I just got fed up with oatmeal, but this is not the case, I still eat it for most of my weekdays’ breakfasts. Saturdays I usually eat a small pre-race breakfast, but Sundays are different story. On Sundays I like eating eggs, ham and bread – just a Sunday classic.
The recipe I propose for you today is a meal that I do from time to time when I want to eat something really delicious. It is full of proteins, carbohydrates and good fats. It rises metabolism and gives lots of energy for the whole day – this is just my Sunday breakfast of champions 🙂
It is not a super fast recipe – you probably will need some 20 minutes to prepare it, but believe me it – is worth it. Once you try it you are going to love it.
The recipe is for two servings – the work is almost the same and it is much safer to do it like this, as if your second half shows up – you won’t be given a chance to eat it unless you have the second plate for her/him.
OK. that is what you need to prepare it:
- two eggs
- 4-6 mushrooms (100g)
- two big slices of ham
- a handful of baby spinach
- one medium sized onion (100g)
- two cloves of garlic
- three tomatoes
- two slices of full grain bread
- two chili peppers (you can use jalapeno peppers if you like it more spicy)
- three tablespoons of olive oil
- herbs (I use thyme and oregano)
- salt and pepper
First of all I peel and cut my mushrooms and onion (or everything at once).
Once I do it I throw it into a pan with one tablespoon of oil and I stir-fry them for about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile I wash my spinach and cut my ham and peppers.
When onions and mushrooms are ready I add ham, peppers and spinach and I stir-fry everything for another 3-5 minutes. I also add some salt and pepper to the pan.
As soon as I add everything to my pan I turn my oven on and I set it to 190 degrees. Mine takes about 5 minutes to heat-up, but if yours takes longer you should turn it on earlier.
Next I start preparing the tomatoes. I wash them and I cut them in halves. I take a small bowl, I pour-in two tablespoons of oil, I press both gloves of garlic in and I add my herbs.
Now I put this dressing on my tomatoes and I lay them on a tray.
The rest of my dressing I put on the bread.
Next I put the mixture from the pan into two heatproof bowls and I make slight hollows in the middle for the eggs.
I break an egg into each bowl and I spice it up with salt and pepper.
I put the bowls into the oven for 8-10 minutes (until the whites of eggs are done).
After three minutes I put my tomatoes into the oven next to the eggs and after two more minutes I put-in the bread.
Everything should be done in the same time – just take it out and enjoy.
The nutritional value of this dish for each serving is approximately as following:
Apart from macro nutrients this breakfast is full of vitamins and minerals. It also boosts your metabolism as it contains capsaicin from hot peppers. If you need more carbohydrates, make more toasts, and if you need more proteins, add two eggs into each bowl, and if you are really hungry – eat both servings – that is my favorite choice 🙂
