Never be stuck for ideas of what to serve up for breakfast when you have guests staying again. You needn’t go to miles of trouble, and with our few simple ideas and handy hints, you’ll have your guests delighted with full tummies!
It can be hard to accommodate for everyone’s tastes, so it’s a good idea to have a few different dishes to serve up at the breakfast table. For a super easy take on the omelette, why not try a Microwave Omelette Maker– all you have to do is add beaten eggs and some yummy fillings like diced ham and tomato, grated cheese and some herbs and place in the microwave for 2 to 4 minutes. Then, simply fold the two halves together and presto, the perfect omelette!
(Handy Hint: Use an herb and spice shaker so you don’t end up with a pile when all you want is a sprinkle! For safe, no-fuss dicing and grating, try the Chop Wizard – you select the blade, pop the ingredients in you want chopped and press the lid down. The chopping is done for you and it’s much safer than using a knife.)
Bacon and eggs is always a winner for breakfast. For perfect round eggs try using silicone egg rings – you can use them on a fry pan or BBQ and they make cooking eggs a breeze.
(Handy Hint: For a less fatty take on cooked bacon, there are options like the Bacon Wave – simply put in the microwave and you’ll have perfectly cooked bacon. No fuss, no mess!)
Don’t forget to put out toast – it’s always a breakfast favourite. For a fun twist, try toast tattoos – just press down on bread slices and pop the bread in the toaster. Your guests will be treated to ‘Good Morning’ and ‘Smile’ greetings with their toast. Serve with a few different topping options like butter, jam and vegemite.
Who doesn’t love fresh orange juice for breakfast? Your guests will be happy, and it’s so easy to prepare with the One Touch Juicer. Simply place orange halves on the juicing cone and the rest is done for you.
Finally, it’s always a good idea to serve fruit for breakfast. It makes for a balanced meal and some people just don’t like a cooked breakfast. Why not serve it in a fancy fruit basket, it makes a great table centrepiece and you can separate hard and soft fruits in the 2 tiers so nothing gets squashed. Fruits that are ready to eat and don’t require peeling and slicing are best, so try filling the bottom with apples, pears and bananas and the top with fresh berries.
It’s easy to serve up a yummy breakfast when you have guests staying. You don’t need to spend a lot of time preparing, just make sure you have a few different options to satisfy everyone’s tastes, and your guests will be so thankful – because breakfast really is the most important meal of the day.
