Homemade Brunch

If you follow me on any of my social media channels you may have noticed that I am obsessed with brunch. Every weekend you will usually find me sat in the corner of a café tucking into some form of brunch, after taking several snaps obviously. Well buying brunch every week was starting to get a little costly so I took matters into my own hand and decided to create my own homemade brunch.

 What you’ll need

·         Bread (I chose Asda’s Chilli bread)
·         Hummus
·         2 eggs
·         Vinegar
·         Cucumber
·         Spinach
·         Cherry Tomatoes
·         Radish
·         Dry Cured Chorizo
·         Pepper to season

What to do

Step One: Slice the bread into thick chunks and place under the grill to lightly toast.

Step Two: Once toasted spread some hummus on top.

Step Three: Chop the cucumber into wedges.

Step Four: Chop the cherry tomatoes into quarters.

Step Five: Slice the radish.

Step Six: Dice the chorizo. Optional – fry for a couple of minutes if you don’t like/prefer raw chorizo.

Step Seven: Poach the egg. Now this is where it can get a little tricky but it’s not too complicated. Simply bring a pan of cold water to boil then add 1-2 teaspoons of vinegar. Create a small whirlpool in the pan by stirring the water with a spoon. Crack the egg and drop it close to the water – don’t drop from a height like you would when frying an egg, keep it close. Once poached (usually after 2-3 minutes) use a spooned spatula to lift the egg out and place on a paper towel for a couple of minutes

Step Eight: Place the eggs on the bread. Put the spinach around the bread and place the cucumber wedges on top. Scatter over the tomatoes, radish and chorizo. Optional – use pepper to season.

Step Nine: Take a picture for Instagram.

Step Ten: Eat and enjoy!

 So that’s my homemade brunch recipe. It’s quick and easy to make and doesn’t cost £10 per person. I haven’t put how many tomatoes/cucumber etc. as it’s up to personal preference, if you’re really hungry add more, if you’re looking for a lighter brunch hold back. Let me know what you think in the comments section below and please share if you like. What’s your favourite thing to have for brunch?
