Today we ate Huevos Rancheros for breakfast. Suggested, prepared and cooked for me by John. It was completely, totally, wonderfully delicious. It was filling, but I did not feel bloated after eating it. It felt like quite a healthy breakfast (if you forget the butter the vegetables were cooked in) and I liked the balance of protein to carbohydrate. Bread and bready things usually feature quite heavily in our breakfasts so this made a nice change.
John used the recipe from Rachel Allen's Easy Meals. (The book was a freebie and we have used it often - very good value!) You fry some red onions, red peppers and garlic together in some butter then add chopped tomatoes and cayenne pepper and leave it to cook for a while. Crack in the eggs, leave them to cook in the tomato sauce, then sprinkle cheese on top so that it melts. Easy! But not quick - John was pottering at the stove for half an hour while I lazed around in my dressing gown drinking tea.
I ate mine with sliced avocado and a tortilla. Like so many breakfasts, they would make equally delicious lunches or suppers.
