We are people who love to go out for breakfast. Usually just me and hubby, but occasionally the kids as well. As you can imagine this means we are ever on the look out for a new little cafe that does a good breakfast, and we've become quite the breakfast connoisseurs! Miss Sunshine found us a new little spot a half hour drive from home. A nice drive out in the country - more country than we are already. We visited there on Monday, thanks to a public holiday, and then Dh and I were there again on Saturday thanks to a rainy morning that prevented Dh from going bike riding. On Monday I had the french toast and yesterday the smashed avocado, without the eggs. You know what? This was so incredibly good, and is an easily reproducible breakfast for home as well. So there is no reason to feel too sad if you can't make it all the way beyond the outer reaches of fair Melbourne town.
This morning I found an avocado, some goats cheese and some dukkah, so I got a second go. At home. Without the travel and without the mushrooms (which I love, but they had all been gobbled by other people at some point through the week).
I toasted my favourite grainy sourdough bread (from Aldi), buttered it, lightly mashed half an avocado over it and then sprinkled some herbed goats cheese (also from Aldi) that I broke up into little chunks over it. I had some zesty lemon dukkah and salt to sprinkle over, and, well....YUM. If you're a mushroom fan you might want to have a go at sautéing some button mushies with balsamic glaze and thyme. At least that's what I would attempt to do if our mushroom monster had not eaten all the mushrooms!
