This is my favourite breakfast. At least, for the moment it is.
Breakfasts for me go in spurts some times. I get interested in one type of food item, then slowly I lose interest and it fades into the "occasional eats" pile. Hashbrowns with a fried egg on top and served with a fruit smoothie used to be a top favourite. A poached egg sandwich was the previous favourite before this Greek yogurt creation.
But now... I'm here. My latest greatest hero for breakfast.
Greek yogurt is an acquired taste. When I first tried it, I was actually really thrown off, but it has become one of my favourite kitchen ingredients, especially when sweetened up with some glorious honey! The fiance still wrinkles her nose whenever she tastes it, but shes learning to love it more with perogies and nachos.
I have found that this is a good dish to serve in layers, as in don't stir it. When stirred, the flavour becomes overwhelmingly like Greek yogurt, and you miss out on all the other flavours. So instead, keep the layers intact and take spoonfuls with a little bit of everything.
I don't know if I ever mentioned that you should be getting the fat-free version of Greek Yogurt or not... Made with skim milk, it significantly cuts down on the amount of saturated fats which are common in the original. Just check the labels in the grocery store and see what I mean.
Sigh, I just realized I made a classic blunder. I started to write a blog post while hungry. Now all I can think about is grocery stores and what I'd buy. You can imagine that a hungry Jeff in a grocery store is a near disaster. At least for me. Not the grocery store. I'm pretty sure they would be rolling out the red carpet and having employees follow me with extra carts for all my cravings.
Note: don't go grocery shopping when hungry. Use common sense. Eat a good breakfast.
Greek Yogurt Breakfast
Greek Yogurt - 1 heaping dinner spoon
Granola - 1 handful (I actually use the cereal
Blackberries - a small handful, washed
Honey - a small tbsp
Scoop a heaping spoon of Greek Yogurt into a small cereal bowl. Sprinkle on the granola and blackberries. Drizzle the honey over the cereal.
Remember when eating that this dish is best eaten with several layers in one bite. Don't get mixing it up! Or... you can mix it up, and tell me how it goes. But if you tell me I was right, I'll be sure to rub it in your face. I don't get to be right often enough!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy it! Do you have a better breakfast of champions? One that you are in love with right now?
