My favorite make-at-home-savory-decadent-brunch: BREAKFAST NAAN!
It is so delicious and easy. When you are ready for some decadence but don’t feel like doing much work, this may just become your go-to. Seriously, there are few restaurant “treat meals” I’d prefer to this AND you use minimal dishes so clean up is a snap.
What you need to make 2 (which you can cut in half and serve with a salad for 4 people, though it’s not hard to eat a whole one) :
1 package naan
½ cup shredded cheddar
½ cup fresh or shredded mozzarella
2 tbs ricotta (full fat or skim)
2 tbs cream cheese (full fat or light)
2 – 4 pieces cooked bacon, crumbled
What you need to do:
Heat the oven to 400 degrees
Place the naan bubble side up.
Spread 1 tbs cream cheese on each naan
Sprinkle half the mozzarella and half the cheddar on each naan
Split the ricotta and dollop onto each naan
Mush a whole in the middle of the cheese and then crack an egg in the middle of each naan
Sprinkle the bacon over each naan
Place in the oven for 10-12 minutes (depending on how dippy/runny you want your egg)
Pour yourself a mimosa
It’s basically assembly line production (once you’ve cooked the bacon). If you have kids they can each make their own, or invite your friends over and have a make-your-own-breakfast-naan party.
You can add any other ingredients you like, cooked mushroom, spinach, sausage…get creative! Just don’t skimp on the cream cheese, using that as the base layer really makes a huge and delicious difference.
