Breakfast Strata / Breakfast Bread Casserole

We live a world that where millions of people starving everyday.  Try not to throw out food unless it ‘s rotten or nor way of using it. Always you can use the left over food for  creating different types of meals. This is one way of using left over food in a meal.

When you have left over bread & meat  try using them in a casserole like this. When you have left over meat from a roast or a meal and the last bits of vegetables this will be an option.

if you are not a person  who like to have any meat  try adding vegetables only. Finely sliced leeks, grated carrots or pumpkin will be very nice in a casserole like this. Cheese is optional but at the end it give s a nice crust and also extra taste to this dish.

This is a budget and a one pot meal. You can bake this the day before. This will be good for breakfast or even dinner too.

Chicken & Corn Breakfast Muffins

This is a another one pot meal that you can try in few minutes. This can be served as a starter Or for breakfast or even for as snacks for the kids. If you want this as finger food can be done in mini muffin pans too.

You can mix anything instead of corns or either chicken in this recipe. Only thing is add the same amount this recipe.

Its really simple to clean the corn. Peel it first and then shave the corn to a bowl. Its so nice and creamy when you fresh corn in your recipes than using frozen. When you buy corn make sure to buy the young ones.

Adding spinach is  bit tricky. It can give extra water. So make sure to leave the spinach out to drain after washing.

One pot meals for busy night is an ideal option. This recipe is so easy to do. You can cook and freeze this meal with out a problem. The other way is to prepare and bake is the next day. When you have time prepare everything together for all busy week days. Plan the week ahead. So it is so simple to do.

Having spinach with ricotta all the time I thought of doing with green peas. This was so nice and creamy and so easy to prepare too. Instead green pea you can use any other kind of a legume for this too.

This recipe will serve four people.

I boiled two cups of frozen peas. Put the peas in to a pot with salted water and cook until tender.

1 Pack Cannelloni and a tub of ricotta cheese

Drain the cooked green peas and lay the cannelloni on the tray.

Mash the boiled green peas until mushy.

Add eggs, onions, garlic, salt and pepper in to the mashed peas and mix well. After add the ricotta and mix well.

Later it will look like this. Put that in to a snap lock bag.

Cut the end of the bag and fill the cannelloni and lay them back to where they were.


Pour the tomato sauce on top. Spread it nice and even.


Sprinkle the cheese on to. Bake on 180c about 1/2 an hour or until golden brown on top.


Serve hot.



Low Carb Asparagus & Broccolini Frittata

One pot , budget and healthy meals are an option for a busy weekday night with out having any take away food. This Aspagus Frittata take only few minutes to prepare and cook. I always use the seasonal vegetables as they are fresh produced and also cheap in price.

Asparagus and Broccolini are good source of fibre and also comes packed with lots of nutrients. Its really nice when cooked in a meal or as its own. You can blanch, roast, or even pan fry them too.

Those who want to eat healthy and have a low carbohydrate diet to loose a bit of weight this will be good recipe.

When you want to get the tender part from asparagus hold the Asparagus from both ends and  bend down and will break giving you the tender part. The other hard part you can use in soups or stocks.

Simple and easy one pot meals like this you can get in my easy meal or the one pot meal section.

This recipe will serve 4 people…….

Savoury Potato bread Rolls

Have you ever tried the soft Asian style bread?  For the money you buy one you can make several at home. These are very soft potato buns that you can even try with left over mashed potatoes. All you need is mashed potatoes with stir fried onions as the filling.

These savoury potato breads are nice as a starter or as breakfast too.

To make the buns more softer you can add bread improvers , but its not necessary if you knead the bread well.

Some ask me whether I have hidden secrets to get softer buns. I never keep any secrets. All you need to do is make them quite often. Then you become a well experienced baker. Not only they are home made but also it gives you the self satisfaction. I really enjoy baking and also love to share the correct recipes with others.

Breakfast Bread

I found a bread same  like this in a bread shop  recently and I thought of making it for breakfast on a Saturday morning. I had enough time to do this as all the other wake up late. 🙂

This is so simple to make and also very nice all in one breakfast. For proofing ion the morning I switch on oven to 25 c and leave the dough there  to double. It takes only less than thirty minutes. When I was telling the ingredients I missed several and I made sure to include  them in my recipe.

The texture of this bread is the same as you find in bread shops and also the taste is much better than them too. Try making them for a quite breakfast and kids specially will love this with out a doubt.
