Getting out of bed isn't an easy thing for me, but if there's one thing that will get me up, it's breakfast!
We're not huge breakfast people in our hoursehold- it's usually a rotation between our standard 'Western Breakfast' (i.e. your typical big brekkie- eggs, bacon, baked beans etc) and our 'Asian breakfasts' (i.e. noodles of some sort). But any kind of food is enough reason for me to get out of bed ;)
Ever since we tried the baked breakfast at our local cafe, we've been inspired to make this version of baked eggs- it's sort of like the big breakfast all combined into one bake. I've combined some baked eggs recipes and some baked beans recipes and chucked in a couple of extras like mushrooms and sausages- and the end result is delicious!
It does take a while to make, since it requires time to prep all the veggies and more time to cook. It does mean waking up about an hour or so earlier, but it's definitely worth it!
