How To Make Sweet Chilli Grilled Kippers, Scrambled Eggs and Avocado By Honest Mum
Every family has their own Christmas morning traditions.

We stay over at my parents on Christmas Eve, so the whole family wakes up together – usually at 6am by an excited Oliver and Alexander rushing downstairs to see what presents Santa has left under the Christmas tree.

Christmas morning is such a magical time.

Fire on, twinkling fairy lights in every room, Christmas songs blaring, we all huddle round exchanging presents, champagne is poured and the turkey is prepared!

I like to get the day off to a delicious start cooking breakfast for the whole family.

With Papa G on Christmas Dinner duty (the perks of having an award winning chef for a Dad – hey?!), I take over the breakfast offering- light but substantial to hold the early bubbles, I love this winning combination of scrambled egg, spiced kippers and avocado!

Decadent yet not too rich, the breakfast ensures you still have plenty of room for your Christmas Dinner later in the day but it will keep you full and feeling bright eyed until then (and the second helping of Christmas pud)!

Why not try it for your family this year?!

A couple of hours before breakfast (or the night before) marinate your kipper fillets with the sweet chilli sauce. Place in a bowl, cover in clingfilm and leave in the fridge until later.

Start off my preparing your avocado, laying out the slices before adding the spring onion, red onion and sun blushed tomatoes as a garnish. Squeeze on the lime juice and drizzle with olive oil. Set aside until serving.

Pre-heat your grill to a medium-high heat, line your baking tray with foil and lay on the kippers. Grill each side for 2-3 minutes each until the fillets are cooked through.

Finally, add your eggs, milk, salt and pepper to a bowl, whisk for around 30 seconds. Heat the butter on a medium heat until melted and add the egg mixture. As the egg begins to cook, pull it around the pan using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, forming large soft curds of egg.

Serve on buttered toast with the kippers and avocado.

The perfect festive breakfast!

    That sounds like a delicious and very healthy breakfast – perfect for keeping blood sugar levels stable before a long day of eating and drinking…I think I actually prefer Christmas breakfast to the lunch as we always have a house full of kids who are just so excited after opening their stockings! Merry Christmas 🙂

    This looks just perfect for a Christmas day breakfast and so healthy too (making up for all the Christmas naughtiness). Have a wonderful, wonderful Christmas and thanks so much for inspiring me this year in my first “proper” year of blogging Xx

    What a lovely, fresh breakfast for Christmas day. We’re all staying at my mum’s on 24th as well. We always have a big dinner on Christmas eve, and all my brothers, nephews and my mum will be with us to celebrate and open pressies on Christmas day. Happy times! Have a wonderful Christmas honey (didn’t send any cards this year – something had to go!) xx
