Healthy breakfast

“Spinach is a great ingredient and it is perfect to eat for breakfast - it is very rich in vitamin K, which is needed to strengthen our bones. Popey knew what to do!"

Ingredients

- 160g ripe cherry tomatoes, on the vine
- 4 thin slices of wholemeal bread, (35g each)
- 3 large free-range eggs
- 1 x 15 g slice of higher-welfare smoked ham
- 80g baby spinach
- 2 tablespoons semi-skimmed milk
- 1 heaped tablespoon cottage cheese
- extra virgin olive oil
- hot chili sauce

Method

1. Preheat the grill to high. Lay the tomato vines in a large baking tray, prick each tomato with the tip of a sharp knife and grill for 4 minutes, then add the bread to the tray to toast on both sides.

2. Crack 1 egg into a blender, add the ham, spinach, a good pinch of black pepper and the milk and blitz until smooth.

3. Take the tray from under the grill and divide the green eggy mixture between the four pieces of toast, spreading it right out to the edges.

4. Divide and dot over the cottage cheese, then pop back under the grill for another 4 minutes, or until starting to brown at the edges.

5. Fry the remaining 2 eggs in a non-stick frying pan on medium heat, cover the pan with a lid to steam and coddle the eggs on the top – cook to your liking.

6. Divide up the Popeye bread and serve each portion with an egg and half the grilled tomatoes. I like to finish with just a few drops of good oil, and a drizzle of chili sauce for a bit of a kick. Crush the tomatoes, tear up the bread, bust up the egg yolk and devour.

This toast can make a great weekend healthy breakfast but it’s definitely nourishing to have for lunch.
