I Love Brunch! It just evokes the feeling of a lazy, happy Sunday. And I Love It! This brunch combines some of my favorite items onto one yummy plate – crunchy garlic toast, best scrambled eggs ever (thanks to Gordon Ramsey) and comforting tomato consommé.

Ingredients (Basil Garlic Cheese Toast)

  • 1 loaf of good quality french loaf or baguette
  • A good handful of fresh basil leaves
  •  2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 small segment of sun dried tomatoes
  • Your favorite cheese

Ingredients (Gordon Ramsey Scrambled Eggs)

  • 2 eggs person
  • A generous knob of good quality butter
  • Truffle Oil (Optional)

Ingredients (Tomato Consommé) 

  • 2 large tomatoes or 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 4 leaves of basil
  • 2 cups of chicken stock or water

Getting it Done! (Basil Garlic Cheese Toast)

  1. Blend the basil, garlic, and tomatoes with a splash of olive oil and a few pinches of salt and black pepper to form a pesto
  2. Taste and adjust accordingly
  3. Spread the pesto on thicker slices of the bread. Alternatively, you can also use this as a pasta sauce
  4. Add a generous amount of cheese (freshly grated if possible) and place into a toaster oven for 5 minutes (or until the cheese is fully melted)
  5. Done!

Getting it Done! (Gordon Ramsey Scrambled Eggs)

  1. Before we begin, let me just say again that this is the best scrambled eggs ever! Bar None! Its a lot of work, but man is this worth it!
  2. Into a heavy bottom pot, add 2 eggs per person and a generous knob of butter
  3. Now place the pot over medium heat and use a spatula to stir the eggs and butter
  4. You have to keep stirring the mixture and watching  it closely
  5. After about 5 minutes, or once you see the eggs starting to ‘curdle’, remove it from the heat and keep stirring
  6. If mixture is still too watery, place pot back onto the heat, all the while stirring, and remove it once the mixture starts to solidify
  7. Dish it out straight away as the eggs will over cook if you leave it in the pot
  8. For added indulgence, add a few drops of truffle oil
  9. Done!

Getting it Done! (Tomato Consommé )

  1. Finely dice the onion and brown it over medium heat using olive oil
  2. When the onion is browned, finely dice the garlic and mix with the onions
  3. Once you can smell the garlic fragrance, add the diced tomatoes and chicken stock
  4. Bring this to a boil, add the fresh basil leave and a few pinches of salt and black pepper
  5. Leave to boil for another 15 minutes, taste, adjust accordingly and set aside to cool
  6. Strain the mixture to extract only the clear liquid
  7. Heat up once ready to serve
  8. Done!
