Brunch with a sicilian touch
Today was one of those rare days that I have time to cook myself a brunch, meal that I truly love! I am usually quite critic of the food I cook...being Italian and an engineer I am quite perfectionist, and I am never satisfied of my results in the kitchen :) But, today is a exception, because I am 100% proud of my home made brunch!! So proud that I don't only put a photos out there, but I will try to describe it! Big challenge ahead.
- Original Sicily Organic Eggplant Pesto
- Original Sicily Organic Red Sicilian pesto
- Chicken and Bacon Sausages from L'Authentique
- 2 slices of bread
- 1 egg
I used two of my pestos for this recipe, the sun-dried tomatoes pesto (alias Red Sicilian Pesto) and the Eggplant Pesto (or as I call it Eggplant Bruschetta Sauce, and they why should be clear looking at the photo).
I can officially announce that the Eggplant Pesto and the Chicken and Bacon sausages from L'Authentique were born to be together, they just didn't know it yet!
I also spread some of the eggplant pesto on the absolutely amazing mixed grains gluten free bread from the Gluten Free store.
I could see the red sicilian pesto as a perfect match for the pumpkin and egg, so I decided to spread it on the other slice of toasted bread to switch between the two different flavours. Totally happy with this choice :)
Eggs, spinach and baked pumpkin completed very nicely the dish so not to make it too dry, which is usually what I don't like when I go for a brunch outside.
The great thing of this recipe is that it's very easy to prepare. If I can do it, everyone can. Which brings me back to one of the reasons I started Original Sicily, which is giving the people the chance to experience flavours from a different culture (namely from Sicily) and to give the right tools to make good and healthy food at home, to share with your family and friends. I believe that to make a good meal we don't need to be great chefs (lucky who is!), but it is all about having a good combination of simple quality products. Our range of pesto and pasta sauces are simply perfect for this, the only limit is our creativity in the kitchen.
