Shotgun Peasants Brunch

March 4, 2016


Author Notes: My partner and I were staying up in the Sunshine Coast hinterland and we found this gorgeous little place , called the Shotgun Cafe, with this on the menu. We were so enraptured with this breakfast that we made an effort to re-create it back at home over and over. My partner recently returned to the cafe to learn that they aren't serving it anymore! So, out of fear that it evaporates from our collective consciousness, I thought I'd share the recipe here, so that it may live on.

It's fairly pricey to purchase all the ingredients, but if you grow your own veggies, bake your own bread and make your own cheese, it would be a lot more affordable. Its super delicious, quick to make, and looks divine!
