CousCous with Garlic dip for breakfast

Yesterday I had enormous breakfast (don’t know why I thought 1 cup uncooked CousCous is OK for 2, it’s not)! There was too much couscous and since it was delicious, I ate it all! Yes, all that BIG breakfast portion of couscous :). breakfast.jpg

I know that oats are better but I can’t eat oatmeal all the time. Also, I don’t like sweet breakfast (and oat is a bit sweet) but it seems like if I’m googling for savory breakfast recipes online every one loves sweet breakfast and there are no other options, except Full English Breakfast! Even before eating pancakes I would eat savory bread with cheese, ham, egg or whatever to get my day going!

Now I’m sharing my everyday recipes, starting with this one, so that next time I google for inspiration, see my own savory breakfast ideas online! Wish me luck 🙂
