Breakfast bake
BAKED RICOTTA, PARMESAN & ROASTED RED PEPPER WITH PESTO

So what do you do when you are home alone, n hubby’s away on a business trip for 2 days ?? …. just spend quality time with yourself ? get that manicure u’ve needed ? call some girlfriends over? or rather hit the town with the ladies? watch a movie, read a book ? …
Well after work, i did watch a movie n got some time to read a book, and i also managed to annoy the hell out of a very dear friend … (hope I’m forgiven) … but what i was most happy to do was cook some vegetarian food !!!! My darling hubby is a hardcore carnivore … needs meat 3 times a day … n sometimes that can really get to you. So when i woke up yesterday i thought, no sausages, no burgers, so salami , no eggs … I’ll have something cheesy. And hence this lovely breakfast bake. Too much effort for one person … hell no ! I enjoy cooking for myself.

Ingredients

1 roasted red pepper, sliced into long strips
1/4 th of a beaten egg
4 heaped tbsps ricotta cheese
3 heaped tbsps Parmesan– the real stuff- grated
salt n pepper to taste
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 a lemon – juice squeezed

You need a muffin tray to begin with …yaya i know mine don’t look anything like its been baked in a tray – but my tray was too shallow, and i ended up with a flat looking cheese melt. So there i have an excuse :p . So grease 3 tins, as this portion makes only 3 and is enough for only one person. Lay the strips of roasted pepper at the bottom and around the cup. Now mix the cheeses n egg+ salt n pepper. Fill the cups with it pressing the mixture down and packing it well. Throw some more grated Parmesan on top so when it bakes it looks pretty n crusty. Bake at 180C for about 20 mins. Cut around the sizes and giggle it out of the mold. Plate up, drizzle the olive oil, lemon juice+ salt n pepper dressing. Top it up with a dollop of pesto. Ready to eat !

Breakfast Pastries
BREAKFAST PASTRIES
Breakfast Pastries 2
And this was my breakfast today … some sweet pastries. Can do just about anything with puff pastry. Here I’ve made different kinds – apple, cinnamon n brown sugar pastry, lime marmalade, raspberry n peach puffs. Just roll out the pastry, cut out your favourite shape, then make a light cut along the inside of the shape, so that your corners rise up. Put your filling- you can use anything you have at hand – even jam will do. Give it an eggwash, dust some icing sugar and bake them till they are well coloured.

I’m with you on this one, when my husband is away I’m back in the kitchen preparing myself good vegetarian meals. He can’t live without meat.

wow! those pastries look so pretty. I’m a huge fan of all things breakfast!! I can’t resist!

Absolutely! Make a great breakfast for one. I do the same when my wife is gone though I tend to less elaborate-looking items (though just as delicious)” brioche, butter croissant or anise biscotti. With a good coffee? They are unbeatable (to me).
