Just to get us off to a good start for the day, here's an idea, which may tempt your taste buds for a special breakfast treat...don't forget the vase of flowers for the centre of the table! For the uninitiated, 'Moreton Bay Bugs' are a crustacean. You could substitute lobster or crayfish...even king prawns would suffice...I'll leave it up to you and your imagination!
Moreton Bay Bugs Benedict: Melt 1/4 cup butter in pan. Add uncooked bug meat (or other), 1 hard-boiled egg, grated, 2tbl sherry, 1/2tbl lemon juice and a splash of Tabasco sauce. Place 4, halved, toasted English muffins in a baking dish. Spread each with bug meat mixture. Top with hollandaise sauce and place under grill until golden. Serve immediately....you're allowed to cheat, if you wish, and use the packet hollandaise mix if you run out of time! Serve this accompanied by a Morning Glory Shake: In blender combine 2-3 sliced bananas, 1 punnet sliced strawberries, 2 cups chopped pineapple or pawpaw (papaya), 1 cup chopped, peeled apples, some ice cubes and 1tsp honey. Blend until smooth. For the more adventurous...add a nip or two of Malibu...or even a dash or three of champagne to brighten up the morning and get it off to a wonderful start!
