My turn now....

Today I'm not going to cook myself.

I'm on the quest to find something original. I need original breakfast. I'm tired of the same type breakfast. So I decided to check out my favorite British chefs - cutie Jamie Oliver and Mr Hell Gordon Ramsay.

Check out my yummy breakfast findings!

Smoked salmon & scrambled eggs - By Jamie Oliver / Photo by David Loftus


30g butter, plus a little extra for spreading

6 large free-range or organic eggs

2 slices sourdough or crusty white bread, griddled or toasted

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

4 slices of smoked salmon

1 lemon, quartered

serves 2

There's nothing better than a nice bit of smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. The best thing is if someone else makes it for you, so drop some hints!

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over a moderate heat until it's foaming. Whisk the eggs in a bowl and add to the saucepan. Stir the eggs continuously with something flexible like a spatula to get right into the corners, and cook until little pieces of cooked egg are surrounded by soft, smooth and still quite runny egg. The egg will continue to cook even when the heat is turned off, so under cook them slightly and leave them in the pan while you butter your toast. Season the eggs to taste and pour over the toast. Drape the salmon over the eggs and serve it with the lemon wedges. Add plenty of black pepper and serve immediately.

Yummy breakfast recipes from Jamie Oliver

Potato and chorizo omelette - Recipe by Jamie Oliver / Photo by David Loftus

jamie oliver, british, chef, food, squidoo, recipe, breakfast


4 small waxy potatoes, scrubbed and cut into chunks

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

6 large free-range or organic eggs

2 x 60g good-quality Spanish chorizo sausages, cut into 1cm thick slices

2 sprigs of fresh rosemary, leaves picked

2 shallots, peeled and very finely sliced

juice of 1 lemon

extra virgin olive oil

a bunch of fresh flat-leaf parsley, leaves picked

serves 2

This omelette is a cross between a Spanish tortilla and an Italian frittata. It's Spanish because of the chorizo and potato, but a little Italian too, because I like to finish it off in the oven instead of on the hob, so it puffs up like a soufflé. It has all the things I love in it -potatoes, sausage and eggs.

Preheat your oven to full whack, or get your grill nice and hot. Put the potatoes into a saucepan of boiling salted water and simmer them until cooked, then drain in a colander and leave them to steam dry. Beat the eggs with a fork in a large mixing bowl, season well with salt and pepper, and put to one side.

Heat a 20cm non-stick, ovenproof frying pan. Add the chorizo slices and the potato chunks. The chorizo will start to sizzle, releasing all its tasty oils and spices. After a couple of minutes, when everything's lightly golden and crisp, remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and put to one side. Sprinkle the rosemary leaves into the hot fat. As soon as they hit the pan, they'll start to crisp up. Pour the beaten eggs on top immediately, adding the potatoes and chorizo and spreading everything out evenly. Place the whole pan in the preheated oven, or under the grill until the omelette is golden brown on top and just cooked through in the middle.

While the omelette is cooking, put the shallots into a bowl with the lemon juice, some salt and pepper and a glug of extra virgin olive oil. Toss and pinch the shallots with your fingertips to soften them slightly, then mix in the parsley leaves. Serve a little on top of the omelette and tuck in!

My favorite recipe books by Jamie Oliver

This could be one of Jamie's best books yet. Recipes are easy and ingredients are not hard to find. Jamie has put his spin on everyday meals and the result is awesome! Highly recommended! Part cooking how-to, part guide to changing people's eating habits, this book presents a revolutionary concept that asks readers to learn easy, healthy recipes and pass them on.

Jamie at Home: Cook Your Way to the Good Life

"This is my favorite of Jamie's cookbooks. For one thing, the photography is gorgeous: full page, full color images of Jamie's garden and the sumptuous feasts it produces. Secondly, the book itself is beautifully printed on unusually grainy paper, giving it a high-quality, handmade feel. And finally, the recipes are great. You must try the roasted carrot and avocado salad! The book is organized by season, with various fruits and vegetables getting there own little chapters, including growing tips! Wonderful.

Sprinkle grated parmesan over the frittata and place the pan under the hot broiler for a minute or two until the eggs are set on top. Slide onto a warm large plate.

Lightly dress a handful of arugula leaves by tossing them with the vinaigrette, then pile on top of the frittata. Cut into wedges and serve. Yummy!

gordon ramsey, hell kitchen, british, food , breakfast, squidoo,


3 tbsp white wine vinegar

large free range eggs

2 toasting muffins

1 batch hot hollandaise sauce

4 slices Parma ham (or Serrano or Bayonne)

serves 1

1. Bring a deep saucepan of water to the boil (at least 2 litres) and add the vinegar. Break the eggs into 4 separate coffee cups or ramekins. Split the muffins, toast them and warm some plates.

2. Swirl the vinegared water briskly to form a vortex and slide in an egg. It will curl round and set to a neat round shape. Cook for 2-3 mins, then remove with a slotted spoon.

3. Repeat with the other eggs, one at a time, re-swirling the water as you slide in the eggs. Spread some sauce on each muffin, scrunch a slice of ham on top, then top with an egg. Spoon over the remaining hollandaise and serve at once.

      I don't think I could eat a heavy breakfast. Just give me fruit or perhaps cereal. But these recipes look like they suit me for lunch!
