Breakfast on our New Table

Cook Meter: Amateur

One of Nick and I's favourite things to do is have breakfast in our backyard in the sunshine.  We recently were given a beautiful wooden outdoor table from our friend that is leaving town. So we christened it with a delicious and easy breakfast.

The best thing about this breakfast was the bread, we bought a fresh wholemeal farmhouse loaf from brumbys that morning. Crusty on the outside and still slightly warm in the middle it was delicious!

So try out this recipe. I had some store bought balsamic glaze in my cupboard. It lasts for quite a while and is a great way to add a swet balsamic flavour to your meals.

Bacon, Rocket, Mushroom and Poached eggs with Balsamic Glaze

Ingredients - Per person (although I had a half serving)
Amounts totally depend on how much each person eats.
2 pieces of fresh bread (toasted and cut thick)
2 pieces of bacon
100 grams of mushrooms
2 small handfuls of rocket
2 poached eggs
Balsamic Glaze


1. Heat water for Poached Eggs

2. Cut up mushrooms and sautee in a hot pan with melted butter, salt and pepper, until cooked.

3. Grill Bacon until as crispy as your like

4. Poach eggs.  Everyone thinks that poached eggs are hard.  So some quick tips. Firstly fresh eggs, if they arent fresh dont poach them! Heat the water until bubbles are formed and then turn down to to a gentle simmer.  Take your time cracking the eggs into the water and get the egg as close to the water as you can.

5.  Toast your bread, butter and then layer like this. Rocket, Bacon, Mushrooms, Egg then drizzle with Balsamic Glaze.
