I know it’s early.
You may not have your breakfast planned yet. You may not even have your day planned yet. But it’s Friday!
Maybe you’re reading this in bed or at work or on the way to work.
Maybe your breakfast was a cup of coffee on the way out the door and a crumbled granola bar you pulled out of your bag. I know how it is. Been there, done that, did that the other day.
Most days of the week, I eat breakfast in the car.
Nick drives, so it’s not dangerous for me to sit in the passenger seat, chowing down on oatmeal, and singing Adele at the top of my lungs.
But when I have time to make breakfasts on the weekends, I try to make fun things that I don’t have the time for during the week.
You guys know how I feel about breakfast. It’s the best, every time.
Breakfast should always be tasty, fun, and something new – at least on weekends.
Do you make fun breakfasts at least once a week? If you don’t, consider yourself challenged.
Plan one fun breakfast a week and just do it.
No time during the week? Make a batch of waffles on the weekend and reheat them while you’re getting ready in the morning. Prep some veggies so you can whip up an omelet super fast. Mix up some biscuit dough, cut them out and freeze them to pop in the oven for whenever you want one or three: breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack time.
If you’ve got some butter laying around and don’t have cookies planned for this weekend, I’ve got your breakfast planned.
Soft, silky butter mixed with tomatoes and fresh herbs, slathered on toasted bread, topped with eggs.
Looks fancy, but it isn’t.
This took 5 minutes to put together….and less than 5 minutes to eat.
Happy Friday to you!
And to me.
I’ve got a fridge full of butter, waiting for the weekend.
And PS: this bread recipe is coming soon.
Makes: 4-6 servings
- 1/2 cup salted butter, softened (I used the new Kerrygold Softer Irish Butter)
- 2 slow roasted roma tomatoes, chopped (sun dried tomatoes in oil would be a great choice, too)
- 1 Tbsp fresh oregano, chopped
- 1 Tbsp fresh basil. chopped
- 1 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped
- Put softened butter into a bowl.
- Stir in the chopped tomatoes and herbs.
- Serve on toasted bread, crackers, breadsticks, or with eggs.
PS: This is another recipe entry into the Kerrygold contest using the new softer, more spreadable butters. The Irish Dairy Board sent me the butters to use to create my entries, but all opinions and recipes are my own.
