Breakfast salad

Updating as we go

Earlier in 2021, I made the move to relocate and update my website; I’ve been making changes and improving all of the things as I go. This recipe is one of the many things I’ve tried to make better.

Something fresh

I love salad, sad but true. I could probably eat salad for every meal and never get bored. Breakfast salads are a great option when you want something a little different to start your day. This breakfast is clean, easy, and a cool take on cooked breakfast to start your day. The recipe is enough to feed two hungry people so you can scale it to suit your needs.

Breakfast salad recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 4 bacon rashers
  • 2 handfuls mixed leaves
  • 1 cucumber, julienne
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 handful of sweet potato strips
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar

Over a medium heat in a frying pan, cook off the bacon until it is crisp, then set to one side to cool.

Once the bacon has cooled, cut it into thin strips.

In the same frying pan, add some oil and fry off the sweet potato pieces until they are crisp, then drain on some kitchen paper.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the cucumber, leaves, avocado, and tomatoes.

In a jar, mix the mustard, oil, and vinegar, then pour over the salad.

Mix the salad and ensure the dressing covers everything, then mix in the bacon.

Divide the salad between two plates.

While mixing the salad, bring a pan of water to a boil, ready to poach the eggs. 

Once boiling, reduce the heat and crack in the eggs.

When the egg whites have set, remove the eggs from the water and place them on the salad.

Finish the salad with the sweet potato strips (if you don’t eat them all first).
