Build Breakfast for 7 SP or less
I’m a huge fan of variety at breakfast. I simply can’t eat the same thing over and over. Every morning i like to build breakfast, coming up with something new that strikes my fancy. Fresh choices, often seasonal, keep me on plan. I look forward to creating fun combinations, trying different things,making new flavors work together.
Breakfast is often steeped deeply in one flavor profile or another. If it’s sweet, it’s very very sweet. When it is savory, it tends to be very savory. My breakfast formulas contain one that actually straddles the two.
Why Build Breakfast?
Why am I building breakfast instead of cooking? I describe making breakfast as building because like a great building it starts with key components, a strong plan, and a solid foundation.
Mornings are often rushed, so a plan helps a lot. I start with a key base. For savory, that’s usually eggs, though grains and breads are also welcome. I pick a base, think about the flavor I want, ensure that I am taking advantage of items that are 0 SP. We’re talking plenty of vegetables and fruits, seasonings and flavors.
I balance out those vegetables with small pieces of extremely savory cheeses, or meats that pack a big punch for few points. A tbls of cheese may not seem like a lot, but when it’s a super savory cheddar, or a briny salty feta cheese it’s worth ever point.
(Think of chocolate, which provides more chocolate flavor, milk chocolate or a rich dark chocolate)
The Build Breakfast Formula
Here are just a few of the formulas I use to build breakfast everyday, and a couple of recipes that come from that. Give them a try and tell me what you think.
