Healthy Breakfast Bowl
I do love my food and cooking, so I like to think that the breakfasts I serve at Hopton House are a bit of a treat. I offer the full English breakfast of course, but you’l also find lots of specials to choose from.
Eggs Benedict or eggs Royale ( substitute the bacon for salmon ) are probably the most popular breakfast special. If you’re vegetarian and fancy Eggs Florentine, let me know before your stay and I’ll make sure I have some spinach in.
The fluffy buttermilk pancakes are also very popular and my personal favourite breakfast. I love mine served with crispy bacon and maple syrup.
If you don’t fancy a cooked breakfast, there’s a breakfast buffet table with cereals, fruit, organic natural Greek yoghurt, fruit juice, homemade white and granary bread to toast and some sort of baked goods. I also put out bircher muesli ( or overnight oats as it’s commonly known )
I’ve converted a lot of people to bircher museli. It’s very easy to make and will last for 3 days in the fridge, so is great for a quick breakfast when you have little time in the morning. The recipe is below.
To make it into your own trendy healthy breakfast bowl, just add berries of choice, banana, seeds ( I like chia and pumpkin ) and nuts.
- 1 cup of rolled oats
- 1/2 cup of apple juice
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup of full fat greek yoghurt
- 1 grated apple – granny smiths are perfect.
The night before ( but it works fine if you only do it an hour before ) put the oats in a bowl and add the water and apple juice and stir well. Add in the greek yoghurt and grated apple.
