Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so you don’t want to be missing out on all the vital goodness that’ll brighten up your morning.  Try some of these healthy recipes:

Sunny Side up Breakfast – Poached eggs with roasted tomatoes

Ingredients:

  •  10 Cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 whole-wheat English muffin
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method:

  1. First of all you’ll need to pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees and arrange the tomatoes in a baking tray.  Drizzle the oil over and season with salt and pepper, also sprinkle the thyme on top for added flavour.
  2. Place them in the oven for about 20min (or until they start to burst).  Then take them out to cool while we get the eggs on.
  3. Now it’s time to heat a pan of water until bubbles start to appear at the bottom.  Slowly crack open the eggs (separately) into the bubbling bowl.  Keep an eye on them and split your muffin in two and toast it while the egg is slowly cooking.   When you see the white is set and the yolk is still runny! (Unless you prefer it set).  You can now remove them, careful not to burst the yolk and place onto paper towel to remove excess water.
  4. Serve the eggs over the toasted English muffin and season to taste with salt an pepper.  Also add the tasty tomatoes and bon-appétit!
