What’s On The Menu?

Now that you’ve got the look, it’s time to put your feature-packed appliances to best use with some cafe-quality breakfast ideas. Here are our favourites.

Espresso Pancakes

DeLonghi coffee machines are for more than just your morning elixir. For a decadent twist on this breakfast classic, add a shot of espresso to your pancake recipe (substitute for the same measure of milk or water). Top with fresh raspberries and a generous dollop of cream, and your place is sure to be everyone’s favourite Saturday brunch spot.

Brekkie Burger

The best way to jazz up your favourite breakfast burger – that’s bacon, egg, tomato relish and a hash brown, obviously – is to swap out the boring bun for a perfectly toasted bagel that’s crunchy on the outside and soft inside. Bagels not your favourite? Try an open brekkie burger on toasted sourdough. Your DeLonghi toaster is at your service.

Double-Toasted French Toast

Do you have a trusted family recipe for French toast? Give it a glow-up with a TikTok trend that has taken the brekkie bunch by storm. It’s a simple one – just toast your bread before you dip it in the egg mix! The result is a flavourful, thick, crispy-edged French toast that’s just the right amount of gooey but not soggy.

Delizioso Salmon & Spring Onion Bagel Recipe

Hankering for a flavoursome breakfast with flair? One that impresses at Saturday brunch with the family or is made for savouring on sleepy Sundays? This one takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and has all the makings of a cafe-quality dish of the day!

Delizioso Salmon & Spring Onion Bagel

Ingredients

  • Sesame seed bagel
  • 3 tbsp cream cheese
  • 1 sprig of dill
  • Dash of lemon juice
  • 2 slices smoked salmon
  • 1/2  Lebanese cucumber, sliced
  • 1 spring onion, thinly sliced

Method

  1. Cut the bagel in half and toast in your DeLonghi toaster. TIP: The dedicated “bagel” setting will toast the inside to perfection while keeping the outside warm.
  2. While waiting for your bagel to toast, mix the cream cheese, dill and lemon juice in a small bowl.
  3. Generously spread cream cheese mixture on bagel once toasted.
  4. Top with smoked salmon, cucumber slices and spring onion to serve. Buon appetito!

Matcha Latte Recipe

If you love the colour pop of the DeLonghi Icona Yellow range, why not add some colour to your coffee mug too? Matcha, a variety of green tea, is distinguished by its bright green colour which, in Japan, is associated with peace and calm. That’s exactly what mornings need!

Ingredients

  • Coffee beans
  • 100 ml of cold milk
  • Ice cubes
  • Sugar
  • Cocoa powder
  • Savoiardi or Sponge Finger biscuits
  • Crushed nuts

Method

  1. To create the first part of the recipe, prepare a cup of hot chocolate with your DeLonghi LaSpecialista Arte Coffee Machine using the maximum level of density and pour it into the cup until it fills 1/2 of the glass.
  2. Once done, crumble 2 Savoiardi/Sponge Finger biscuits over the hot chocolate.
  3. Next, prepare 1 cup of cold coffee along with the maximum level of froth. You can use the DeLonghi LaSpecialista Arte Coffee Machine, just leave time for it to cool down. Pour into the glass until it is full.
  4. Finally, decorate with cocoa powder, crushed nuts and a Savoiardo/Sponge Finger biscuit.

For best visual results, pour each drink into the glass over the back of a long spoon to create even layers.
