Summer Strawberries for Breakfast

What better way to start the day? Pull up a chair in a sunny patio spot, admire the blue skies, the warmth of the sun and the birds singing – I kid you not: absolute bliss! Add to this perfect list of ingredients some sweet English strawberries and a really good espresso….and relax…

What you need…

All of the above or a similar delightful setting

A slice or two of sourdough bread, toasted

A goodly portion of ricotta

A handful of sweet, ripe strawberries, sliced (and English if possible)

A drizzle of maple syrup

A sprig of mint, to garnish (optional)

What to do…

Load your sourdough toast with as much ricotta as you fancy. Top with as many strawberries slices as you like and then drizzle with maple syrup. Serve with really good espresso in the garden! Absolutely delicious.

Inspired by…

How easy…

Do I need to specify that…?
