I can speak for hours about the weekend breakfast. You finally can be lazy, slow, you stay long in the bed and after you go to the kitchen to create something very special, to celebrate this wonderful time – Saturday/Sunday morning. And the sun is already quite high and lighten all your kitchen. And then you can sit, eat let’s say pancakes with maple syrup, look into the garden and make plans. Amazing, right?
Have you ever wondered, what people in the different parts of the world do at the same time on Saturday? Guys from Hostelbookers did a research about traditional breakfasts in 50 countries (did you spot Dutch breakfast apple rings?). They got a lot of critics that these dishes are not what people do eat every day. Indeed, not many of us are able to make pancakes or have a full English breakfast in the few time we have before going to job. But according to me, the point of the project was to show what would one eat for the breakfast, if one can choose whatever dish he wants? Moreover, I can confirm Italian, American, Russian, and British breakfasts as correct, so it is already a good start. Anyway, have a look, it is indeed interesting!
As breakfast takes a special place in my heart, I decided to launch a weekly post “Weekend Breakfast”. (The name is quite self-explanatory I guess).
My choice for today is Dutch breakfast apple rings. This breakfast recipe I found at Afra’s blog (oh, she is the best person for the breakfast inspiration). I prefer these apple rings to traditional pancakes, they are tastier, healthier (you actually eat apples, and no sugar needed), and lighter as well.
