I love sleep. You know why? Because it’s like a time machine to breakfast – aka, my favourite meal of the day. I’ve never been one of those people who skip breakfast or go without thinking about food until 11am. Oh no no.
I’m quite a creature of comfort actually when it comes to breakfast. Up until recently I’ve always had my go to breakfast – protein oats or pancakes. That was until I decided to experiment a little with my diet when I was hit by the big bad sugar tooth a month or so ago. Seriously guys, the sugar craving is real. Oh so real. So, I decided to start some of my days off with a savoury breakfast to help curb my sweet tooth and avoid afternoon sugar cravings.
Besides my aubergine baked eggs recipe, I’ve been a huge fan of flatbread sandwiches for a nutritious and energy packed breakfast. So friends, all hail my new concoction – my marmite and smoked pepper breakfast flatbread recipe. Gah, what a mouthful but trust me, the flavours in this recipe is absolutely smoking. See what I did there?
Now, whether you’re a marmite lover or hater (there’s no in-between, right?) this breakfast flatbread recipe is for you. If you’re a lover then great, if you’re a hater then simply switch out the marmite for a healthy spread or some avocado mixed with some black pepper to give the base some kick that it needs.
I’ve used my favourite wrap brand for this recipe, Deli Kitchen and have gone with their plain flatbread thin product – which by the way, turned out to be phenomenal. Yes, that’s a big word to give a food product, but trust me. These flatbread thins – when toasted – remind me of a fluffy naan bread. They’re light, low in fat and have a perfectly healthy amount of carbs for a breakfast meal – perfect for starting your day. However, it’s the texture and fluffiness of these flatbread thins that gives them that ‘mmm’ factor. So pair that with the flavours from the marmite, the smokey spice from the peppers and the creamy yolk from the egg and you’ll find that it is indeed, pretty phenomenal.
This recipe is simple, quick to prepare and can be made in preparation for the week ahead. If you’re after something a little different than your usual go to breakfast then try this and I bet ya bottom dollar that you won’t regret it.
