I try not to go near the shops the day before a public holiday. Unfortunately I needed to duck in for some chicken and bread rolls for lunch. Wow it was insane! The line was all the way to the other end of the supermarket! I was quite lucky however that a lady took pity on me with my two items and let me in front. When you see random acts of kindness it gives you a little twinkle of hope for the world.
Well being that we’re only two people, a 6 pack of buns is a bit much just for lunch!
So here’s my breakfast buns!
Breakfast Buns – Serves 2
2 x large round buns
8 x slices of primo salami stick, cubed
8 x semi-dried tomato pieces, sliced into small bits
1/2 tsp dill
2 x large eggs
1 x tsp shredded light tasty cheese
5-8 baby spinach leaves (or other green salad leaf)
Sprinkle of paprika
Extra sprinkle of dill
Small 1/2 tsp oil
Preheat your oven to 180C.
Slice the top of each bun off carefully we will use this as a “lid” later. Rip out the inner bread of the bun base till you have a nice hole but with no rips.
Add the salami into the bottom of the bun, then top 1/4 of the tsp of dill.
Place the semi-dried tomato bits on top of the salami. Add the remaining dill and half the cheese.
Push the filling down and to the sides a bit to make a section in the middle for the yolk to sit.
Crack one egg into the middle of each bun and top with the remaining cheese. Place them both on a nonstick pan or tray and pop into the oven.
Chop the inner bread bits that we tore out into smaller bits for croutons and transfer to a baking tray. Sprinkle the dill and the paprika over the bread pieces and mix enough oil to coat the bread evenly.
Place this in the oven as well and put your timer on for about 15-20mins.
Please check this in your oven, as it may take less time to cook then mine did. I work with an old oven that doesn’t quite seal the heat in and has seen better days. But in all fairness, it hasn’t let me down once!
When the breakfast buns and croutons are ready, take them out and place the “lids” in the oven to crisp slightly, they should only take a minute or so.
Additionally, you could serve this with a nice light salad. But it’s very filling on its own.
It was quite a nice surprise breakfast for my OH to wake up to.
