They say:

“This quiche is without pastry – it couldn’t be simpler.”

We say:

If a quiche doesn’t have a pastry base, is it still a quiche? Probably not…but breakfast is rarely the time for such deep philosophical questions, so just enjoy starting your day with a welcome punch of savoury flavour.

 

Potato and Spring Onion Breakfast Pancakes - BBC Good Food

Brunch

Potato and Spring Onion Breakfast Pancakes

BBC Good Food

They say:

“This Irish-inspired breakfast…is based on ‘boxty’, or potato cakes”

We say:

Spring onion first thing in the morning might sound a little daunting, but it cuts through and lightens what could otherwise be a very heavy dish. Just brush your teeth for a little longer than normal afterwards.

 

Chicken Lettuce Wraps - Genius Kitchen

Lunch

They say:

“N/A”

We say:

If you’re trying to be healthy by cutting back on Chinese takeaways, these little gems (gem lettuce…lol) will take the edge off the withdrawal. Feel free to sub out the chicken for pork mince; it’ll work just as well.

 

Melon and Crunchy Bran Pots - BBC Good Food

Snack

Melon and Crunchy Bran Pots

They say:

“This healthy pot of yoghurt, fruit and seeds is a real mid-afternoon hunger booster.”

We say:

Why restrict something so delicious to breakfast? Using fresh melon instead of jam keeps it from becoming too sickly, as some shop-bought granola pots can. An ideal mid-afternoon minimal fuss pick-me-up.

 

Build-your-own Chicken Burrito - Tesco Real Food

Dinner

Build-your-own Chicken Burrito

Tesco Real Food

They say:

“N/A”

We say:

Do you know anyone who doesn’t love mid-week Mexican? That’s what we thought. Let everyone assemble their own burritos at the table, keeping both the fussy eaters and bottomless pits in the family happy.

 

Epic Ice Cream Cake - Jamie Oliver

Dessert

Epic Ice Cream Cake

They say:

“Choose two or three different flavours of your favourite ice cream…”

We say:

Occasionally, there are milestone moments of genius that change your life forever. This is one of those moments. Not content having ice cream with your cake? Then make your cake out of ice cream. Obviously.
