Posh Bacon, Eggs and Simple Onion Chutney

Bacon, Eggs and Simple Onion Chutney

Christmas breakfasts are always a great way to kick start the day. Every year I like to invent a variation of the previous years breakfast. For a few years we ate smoked salmon for breakfast. In recent years it seems to be posh bacon and eggs that helps us to kick start our day. For me breakfast is the most important meal of the day. To be honest I can’t function properly without it.

Therefore when there is lots to do at Christmas I always make sure to fuel my body ready for the busy day ahead. Our Christmas, like many people’s, is focused around food. We try to eat most of our meals together at the kitchen table all year round but even more at Christmas. To start our day this year I have added a couple of family favourites that I’m sure we are going to enjoy and wee hope you will too.

Bacon, Eggs and Simple Onion Chutney

Bacon, Eggs and Simple Onion Chutney was a yummy breakfast. I have no doubts we will be eating this on Christmas day. The simple onion chutney was very easy to make but it will need to be made in advance of this meal. Also the sweet potato pancakes could be made in advance of this meal too. They can be frozen and defrosted when you want to eat them. Then all you have to do on the day is fry the eggs and the parma ham or bacon and add the chutney. De-li-cious!
