What would you serve for breakfast if royalty popped round?
It would have to be something special. None of your usual cereal and toast malarkey. Mind you they'd probably enjoy a bowl of porridge as they love their holidays in Scotland.
I wouldn't give them porridge either. I'd give them this!
I had this breakfast of kings on Wednesday. Did I have royalty round for breakfast I hear you ask? Why no, but if they had arrived, I'd have settled them at the dining table with a drink, popped some more toast in the toaster and served them this.
Crunchy buttered wholemeal toast, topped with wilted spinach, a layer of softly smooshed avocado, topped with a unctuously soft poached egg.
So next time Kate and William drop by first thing in the morning unannounced, be sure to make them this luxuriously royal breakfast (if Kate's still pregnant when they visit, then make sure her egg is hard boiled!).
