Have an American-style sweet and savoury brekkie with fruit pancakes and spicy bacon and egg sandwiches
It's been a while since I gave you some tasty breakfast recipes. This weekend we have some great in-season peaches and nectarines and they taste delicious together.
The bacon recipe I am sharing with you is absolutely out of this world and you may just eat the whole 10 slices, I'm not joking!
Finally we have a great breakfast sandwich made with Sumac spice.
Sumac is a Greek spice and has a tart, sour lemon taste. It can be purchased in Indian or Middle Eastern shops. The flavour of the spice combined with the bacon will make this the best-tasting breakfast sandwich you ever have!
