Healthy Brunch

This might seem quite labour intensive for one but is easily doubled or quadrupled for a family meal and is very quick to prepare – just get the ingredients all together first and get the grill on and the steamer out. Try a poached egg for a change, or a couple of slices of smoked salmon instead of the halloumi for a treat. Mix it up a bit depending on what you have in the fridge – try rye bread and feta cheese for a change.
