Christmas breakfast has always been a relaxing, stressfree family time at our house. The table is set with a Christmassy tablecloth and candles. The croissants are warmed in the oven and served with Dutch cheeses and ham alongside yoghurt, homemade muesli and strawberries.These little salmon quiches would be good to have as well. Spinach is growing in our garden so it's only hop skip and a jump to gather some young leaves.
This year two of our grown up children will be in India, and we'll miss them a lot. There will be a young labrador puppy bounding around in a slightly uncontrollable way.
This recipe makes 6 and can easily be doubled. And if there's anyone who is strictly vegetarian and doesn't eat fish some can be baked without the salmon.
Preheat oven to 180C
1/4 cup of milk
1/4 cup of yoghurt
1/4 cup of flour
1/4 cup of chopped smoked salmon/smokedsalmon flakes
1 cup of finely chopped young spinach leaves
1/2 cup of grated tasty cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
a scatter of sunflower seeds
Divide the smoked salmon amongst 6 individual silicon muffin molds. (1/4 cup size)
Beat the eggs, milk and yoghurt together . Add the flour. Continue to beat energetically with a hand held whisk until smooth. Season with salt and pepper
Stir in the chopped spinach and grated cheese and spoon over the salmon.
Sprinkle some sunflower seeds over the top.
Bake at 180C for 20 minutes-25 minutes till golden brown.
Serve warm with tomato relish or chutney.
If there are any left over they will reheat happily in the microwave on a paper towel..
