Kayaking in Costa Rica

 

I love trying out breakfasts in different countries.   It’s nice to have something more filling than toast, cereal, or oatmeal.   As a vegetarian we need to have protein, especially when we will be going all day. One of my favourites was Vegetarian Gallo Pinto, which I had with my dad in the morning for breakfasts in Costa Rica.  My dad and I went on kayaking trips together and when you spend 4-8 hours a day paddling on a river you NEED to have a good breakfast to give you the energy to tackle the day.

Perfect breakfast for traveling!

Kayak Surfing in Costa Rica

 

This is a super easy breakfast to make, it is even delicious for lunches and dinners.  It requires mostly ingredients you probably already have on hand. For non-meat eaters protein is always a consideration so luckily Vegetarian Gallo Pinto has lots of protein for anyone to eat.  My kids also loved eating this from a very early age as it is baby and toddler friendly.

Breakfast Poutine

Breakfast Poutine - Try out this amazing breakfast poutine with potatoes, cheese curds and a poached egg covered in Hollandaise sauce. Can you say yum!

We LOVE poutine in this house!  My husband and I are from Montreal so maybe that fostered the love.  Or perhaps it is the fact that being a vegetarian I had never had poutine until I got married and my husband introduced me using mushroom gravy, it all makes for a delicious meal that my family demolishes.

Breakfast Poutine

Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Vegetarian
Ingredients
  • Potatoes or pre-cut fries
  • Cheese curds
  • Hollandaise sauce
  • Poached egg (or if you prefer scrabbled or fried, your choice!)
Instructions
  1. Cook your fries in your preferred method. We like using our t-fall actifry, which only takes about 30 minutes, plus these amazing frozen fries my aunt gives us. You can always roast potato wedges or do home fries. Mine usually take an hour in the oven.
  2. Make your hollandaise sauce, I prefer the package stuff, but if you like to make it from scratch then go at it.
  3. While the fries are baking and the sauce is heating, boil another pot of water on the stove to make your poached eggs. I usually add a bit of white vinegar to the water, then add 2-3 eggs (separately) while at a roiling boil and poach for 2-3 minutes. Scoop out with a slotted spoon and let drain on a paper towel for a few minutes after cooking.
  4. Now time for assembling. Grab a nice helping of fries, top with some cheese curds, a good dollop of hollandaise sauce and a poached egg on top!

 

Dig in and enjoy the decadence!

NOTE: for kids (aka baby and toddler) I omit the hollandaise sauce and just cut up the poached eggs, letting the runny yoke be sauce enough for them.  Both baby and toddler love it!

Everything tastes amazing covered in Hollandaise sauce, especially poutine! Click To Tweet\

Of course for all you meat-lovers you could always add some sausage or bacon if you feel it needs something carnivorous!
