Best winter breakfast recipes

If you need a little more convincing than usual to get out of bed when it's cold outside, try these warm, hearty breakfast ideas to get you going, from waffles to warm polenta and smoky beans with bacon.

What to cook this winter

From rib-sticking beef rendang to the perfect goat's cheese quiche, these are the recipes to tick off for winter (so far).

Chocolate hob-nobs

These extra-large oat biscuits are exactly what you need to get through the afternoon slump. Have one with a strong cup of tea and you'll be firing.

Recipes using turmeric

An old Indian spice lauded for its health benefits, turmeric adds both colour and a peppery, warm, sometimes slightly bitter flavour to food. Use it in curries, with rice, as a paste for grilled meats and in warm winter soups.

Citrus recipes

From tarte au citron to canard a l’orange, citrus flavours have long been friends of French cuisine. Pucker up for a taste of the sun-kissed Mediterranean and further afield with these recipes featuring oranges, lemons, grapefruit and mandarins.

Winter tart recipes

Tarts are as versatile as they are delicious, and are perfect for baking on a cool winter's day.

Roti canai

Here, we've made the dough in a food processor, but it's really quick and simple to do by hand as well. If the dough seems a little too wet just add a little more flour.

One-pot recipes

There's no need to do the dishes with these one-pot wonders. From hearty stews to creamy risottos, these recipes are mess free and perfect for a winter's night.

Blue swimmer crab omelette


You'll need

2 eggs 1 egg yolk 30 gm crème fraîche 60 gm cooked blue swimmer crab meat 50 gm unsalted butter 1 tsp lemon juice 2 tsp coarsely chopped curly-leaf parsley

Method

  • 01
  • Whisk eggs, egg yolk and crème fraîche to combine, add crab meat and season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground white pepper.
  • 02
  • Heat a 24cm omelette pan or frying pan over medium heat, add 20gm butter and melt without colouring. Pour in egg mixture and cook for 20 seconds or until just starting to set, then shake pan to coat base with egg mixture evenly. Using a spatula or fork, draw the cooked egg away from edges of pan allowing raw mixture to flow underneath and cook. Repeat for about 1 minute or until omelette is cooked, then turn out onto a plate and fold.
  • 03
  • Heat a separate small frying pan over medium heat, add remaining butter and cook, swirling pan, until foam subsides and butter is golden brown in colour. Remove pan from heat and add lemon juice and parsley. Drizzle butter mixture over omelette and serve immediately.

“On my last visit to Sydney, I tried Damien Pignolet’s sublime blue swimmer crab omelette at Bistro Moncur. I would love to have the recipe, so I could make it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.”
David Gibson, Brisbane, Qld
