    Kedgeree is a rice dish that has a semi curry flavour, its got flaked chunks of smoked salmon or trout in it and egg. Its a very british indian breakfast dish.

    Spanish Omlette is like a frittata:

    Spanish omelette

    Preparation Time
    10 minutes

    Cooking Time
    25 minutes

    Ingredients (serves 4)

    1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
    1 (about 120g) chorizo sausage, thinly sliced
    1 red onion, chopped
    1 small (about 200g) red capsicum, halved, deseeded, cut lengthways into strips
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    1 (about 150g) ripe tomato, roughly chopped
    1/2 tsp sweet paprika
    6 eggs
    2 tbs water
    Salt & freshly ground black pepper
    2 tbs roughly chopped fresh continental parsley

    Method

    Heat oil in a 22cm (base measurement) heavy-based frying pan over medium heat. Add sausage and cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer sausage to a bowl. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add onion and capsicum, and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until onion is soft. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until aromatic.
    Return sausage to pan. Add tomato and paprika, and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Spread mixture evenly in pan and set aside until required.
    Crack eggs into bowl. Add water and whisk until combined. Season with salt and pepper. Preheat grill on medium. Pour egg mixture over sausage mixture in pan. Cook over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until almost set. Place under preheated grill and cook for 1-2 minutes or until just cooked through. Remove from heat and sprinkle with parsley.
    This tortilla stack I saw on Lifestyle Food and it looked great, apparently its a hangover cure

    Huevos Rancheros

    INGREDIENTS
    2 tablespoons Vegetable Or Canola Oil
    4 Corn Or Enchilada Tortillas
    4 tablespoons Refried Beans (Tinned Is Fine)
    4 tablespoons Mexican Salsa (Tinned Or Make Your Own)
    4 Eggs (Free Range)
    1 tablespoon Chopped Coriander
    6 tablespoons Sour Cream
    1 Lime (Cut Into Quarters)
    4 sprigs Coriander
    Sea Salt
    Cracked Black Pepper
    12 Jalepino Peppers (Optional)

    Method
    Heat a touch of oil in a pan and fry the tortillas until just starting to get a bit of colour on both sides, place onto a baking tray
    Fry off your eggs / or poach if you like
    Place a tablespoon of beans on each tortilla and spread out
    Do the same with the salsa
    Place the egg on top of the salsa
    Season the egg with sea salt & pepper
    Sprinkle on some chopped coriander and cheese
    Bake in the oven until cheese melted (180 degrees C)
    Take out and place on serving plates
    Top with avocado slices
    Place a tablespoon of sour cream on top
    Garnish with coriander sprig, lime wedges and jalapeno peppers.
    Enjoy with a bloody Mary
    You can make this bread the night before, and in the morning toast and serve with butter & lemon curd (lemon spread or similar tastes better with homemade but you can get nice ones from the supermarket now)

    Bill's Coconut Bread

    INGREDIENTS
    2 Eggs
    300ml Milk
    1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence
    2 cups Plain Flour
    2 teaspoons Baking Powder
    2 teaspoons Cinnamon
    1 cup Caster Sugar
    150g Shredded Coconuts
    75g Unsalted Butter (Melted)
    Icing Sugar

    Method

    Preheat oven to 180C (350F).
    Lightly whisk eggs, milk and vanilla together.
    Sift flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a bowl, add sugar and coconut, and stir to combine.
    Make a well in the centre and gradually stir in the egg mixture until just combined.
    Add melted butter and stir until the mixture is just smooth, being careful not to over-mix.
    Pour into a greased and floured 21 x 10 cm (81/2 x 4 in) loaf tin and bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour, or until bread is cooked when tested with a skewer.
    Leave in tin to cool for 5 minutes, and remove to cool further on a wire rack.
    Serve in thick slices, toasted, buttered and dusted with icing sugar. Makes 8-10 thick slices.

    I saw on a cooking show a really yummy twist on normal french toast. I made it last weekend and it was divine.

    I used a sweet loaf which I got at a place near me but you could probably get it in a deli or just use a normal unsliced loaf.

    Make french toast as normal but to the egg mix, add a little bit of caster sugar, some cinnamon and a teeny splash of vanilla essence. Dip bread in as per normal but then you dip the edges in crushed almonds. Cook in a pan with some butter and serve with maple syrup. Mmmmmmmmmm it was awesome.

    Quick and easy.... just chuck some feta (danish works best) into some scramble egg mix and have feta-cheesy scrambled eggs. Nice with some sautee mushies, spinach and smoked salmon.
