I make no secret of my love for breakfast - it's splashed across my About page, Twitter and Instagram, after all! - but the funny thing is that I will eat anything for breakfast. I have no qualms about starting the day with noodles, curry or my all-time favourite, pizza. Yes, I like toast and croissants and porridge and scrambled eggs, but there's something about that special first meal of the day that holds no limits. Perhaps it's because you wake up fresh, a clean slate from the day before; unlike dinner, where you might not fancy a big burger because you ate a hot dog for lunch, breakfast is the first meal for a good 12 hours or so and I am always hungry when I wake up. Thinking about food first thing in the morning, whether it's a salad or a fried egg sandwich, will set me off straight away.
In honour of the best meal of the day, here are some of my favourite breakfast recipes:
Breakfast burritos (actually, they're tacos, aren't they) with homemade tortillas
Restaurant-style scrambled eggs (super indulgent!)
Dishoom-inspired Bombay omelette
Leftover pilau rice
Cheat's banh mi (pictured above). No recipe, just a fried egg, sriracha, mayonnaise, lettuce, shredded carrot and a generous helping of coriander, salt and pepper.
