I am not a morning person and cooking breakfast early is out of the question. However when on South African safari you have to be up early to see wildlife. Fortunately, when I travel with Joan she gets up way before dawn and makes coffee which we traditionally enjoy with rusks.
We get out the gated camp around sunrise. Then after several hours of driving and animal spotting it’s time to return to camp for a proper breakfast and because we weren’t carrying a cooler and cooking very much that meant finding a restaurant.
For me that usually includes a shot of espresso mixed into hot chocolate, 1-2 scrambled eggs, 2-3 rashers of good shoulder bacon (none of that gross streaky stuff we get in the US), 2 pieces of brown health bread preferably with apricot jam, and a slice of baked tomato which is served with everything. Sometimes I’d also add a sausage, or chips (French fries). I’ve really learned to like the baked tomato which reminded me of an edible garnish, unlike parsley. Still firm and seasoned differently.
And when not on safari or traveling alone I still can’t handle anything more than coffee and rusks first thing in the morning.
