There’s more than simple logic to the saying ‘Eat breakfast like a King…’ it’s also all about packing in the nutrients and giving your customers a healthy start to the day.
And if you ask us, the bigger the better when it comes to breakfast! And going big means big flavours. The options for breakfast dishes are limitless even if the ingredients are common everyday staples. From classic English fare to nourishing smoothies, poke bowls and must-have eggs, there is no shortage in the variety you can offer up for breakfast at your Café.
Here’s a run-down of the most common ingredients and how to use them to pack more onto the plate.
You can never go wrong with eggs in any form – poached, omelettes, sunny side up, fried or scrambled for breakfast. It’s possibly the most obvious choice for a big brekkie but that doesn’t mean they have to be standard in any way. Give your customers sumptuous options by adding a variety of condiments, fillings, sides and garnishes to elevate the flavour profile of the eggs you serve up. Go the extra mile by making the eggs to order as per your customers’ preferences to add that personal touch.
Options like Eggs Benedict teamed with the KNORR Garde d'Or Hollandaise Sauce and Frittatas or Shakshuka created with the versatile KNORR Gluten Free Pronto Napoli add international influences and make for great options on any breakfast menu.
Nothing comes close to a strip of crispy crunchy bacon. The smoky flavour elevates many breakfast dishes and works great as a side to eggs and more. Most brekkie lovers love their bacon and it adds indulgence to any breakfast plate.
Do keep in mind that if you usually serve it crisp, make that clear on your menu as some customers prefer to go easy on the grill.
Another breakfast staple – sausages, chipolatas and even full-sized bangers won’t seem out of place on a big brekkie plate. The simplest way is to pan fry them and serve them as a side, but why do only that? Try tossing them up in the KNORR World Cuisine Tomato Chilli Relish or our smokey Chipotle BBQ Sauce and even add some crunchy onions and bell peppers to give them some zing and you’ve got yourself a winning combination.
Never underestimate the value of toast. The humble slice is the perfect way for hungry morning customers to ‘wipe up’ their plates. Offer your customers a choice of breads like fresh sourdough or Turkish toast to upgrade the meal.
Include some breakfast sandwiches to your menu, offering on-the-go customers a convenient option. HELLMANN’S Deli Mayonnaise and wholegrain mustard are the perfect condiments to put together a wholesome sandwich.
Not all big brekkie eaters dig bacon and eggs.
There are some great veggie options that everyone will love to dig into from time to time.
Some vegetarian brekkie options:
- Cooked spinach
- Fresh avocado
- Grilled cherry tomatoes
- Grilled asparagus
- Fruit bowls
- Poke bowls
- Tofu Scrambles
- Fresh Veggie wraps
- Veggie and Fruit Smoothies
A big meal in the morning needs something pretty good to wash it down. Popular options are a stimulating cup of coffee or a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. A cup of calming tea is a great choice too like the classic Sir Thomas Lipton English Breakfast or the detoxing Jasmine Green Tea. Keep it simple so your customers find it easy to make a choice.
