Bread-based breakfast delights

Bread is known as a staple breakfast meal by many, even those who don’t like it. Over the years, it has lost popularity due to the monotony in its form of consumption.

People have been limited by their imagination and have not explored the bread further by making it an ingredient in a recipe.

In as much as it is not advisable to consume bread every day, it has some nutritional benefits like carbohydrates, fibres, vitamins, and minerals.

Here are some recipes you can turn to when you want to spice up your breakfast.

Avocado Toast with Poached Egg


Sliced whole-grain bread

Ripe avocado


Olive oil

Salt and pepper

Optional toppings: cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, red pepper flakes


Lightly toast the whole-grain bread until golden brown. Mash the ripe avocado with a fork, adding a dash of salt and pepper for seasoning.

While toasting, poach the eggs until the whites are set but the yolks remain runny.

Spread the avocado mash generously on the toasted bread. Top it with the poached egg and sprinkle with additional toppings for added zest.

French Toast Sticks


Sliced bread (preferably a day-old loaf)



Vanilla extract


Maple syrup or powdered sugar

Banana slices or berries


In a bowl, whisk eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon until well combined. Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, ensuring it's fully coated.

Cooking: Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat and cook the soaked bread until golden brown on both sides.

Serving: Serve the French toast sticks with a drizzle of maple syrup or a dusting of powdered sugar. Add fresh berries or banana slices for a burst of flavour.

Bread Sausage Rolls


1 loaf of bread (white or whole wheat) 8-10 sausage

1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)

Salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Oil


Slice the crusts off the bread slices and, using a rolling pin, flatten each slice to about 1/4-inch thickness. This will make them easier to roll.

Add another flat slice at the edge of another to create a longer slice to roll with. Roll a sausage underneath the newly created slice.

Deep the roll into the beaten and seasoned egg. Place the roll in a pan with heated cooking oil. Cook until golden brown.
