Sundays are usually lazy days for Mr J and I. We rarely get to eat a hearty breakfast/brunch during the week due to our early start at work, and on Saturdays we head over to the gym so only a light, muesli bar is usually consumed. But on Sundays, the agenda usually involves: sleeping in, big breakfasts and walk along Coogee Beach.
On this particular Sunday, Mr J had bookmarked a recipe from the Bitton Cafe cookbook and had wanted to serve this with some amazing Sonoma country sourdough bread. I, of course, had no complaints.
This dish is best served in those mornings when you’re craving for a heavy brunch, or need that carb-loaded, spicy and tasty hangover cure. Whatever the need is, this dish has the absolute answer.
