Big Man and I decided that we would have a little day away from mountain and head down to the beach. We would go for lunch in a local restaurant we know near the spot we like, but decided to have breakfast on the beach.
For once, we were organised, and made this plan the night before, so I decided to prepare something ready for the morning.
I defrosted a sheet of puff pastry and folded the edges over to create a little rim. I baked this in a hot oven for about 10 minutes until it was just starting to turn brown.
For a filling I beat two of our free range eggs with two tablespoon of milk, seasoning and a cup full of chopped wilted chard (just the green part) with the excess water squeezed out.
I poured this into the pastry “case” and baked for another 10 minutes or so until it was set. It looked lovely when it came out of the oven, but I didn´t take the snap until the next morning when it looked a little less crusty and flaky. Nonetheless, it was delicious cold and we didn´t even get any sand in it!
PS. Bet you´re glad I spared you a photo of us eating it on the beach…

Lovely! I can’t imagine going to the beach (too hot to consider it and our lakes are almost dry from the drought), but I can imagine eating this!! Sort of quiche-y I’m thinking? Mmmmm!!!
Very quiche-y! The beach was lovely – a nice breeze and the water was lovely!
Ha, ha. You’re too funny. I love the foresight though. I need to think this way for our upcoming trip!
Honest rather than funny! I had to spare you all…breakfast was yummy 🙂
Looks amazingly delicious… beats cheerios any day!
And no milk to slop around either!
A delicious idea for a breakfast on the beach and for using up the chard mountain we can’t keep up with….I’d have liked to see the beach too, even if you’re too shy to photograph yourselves eating there!
Good point – next time I´ll show you the beach! We´re trying to invent 101 recipes for using up the chard 🙂
Looks yummy! Kinda like quiche…
Almost exactly like quiche!
Quite the contrary, we demand photos!! 😉
Tee hee….maybe a scenery one next time!
what a brilliant idea! Hope you enjoyed the beach 🙂
The beach was lovely – it´s not too far, but we don´t get down there that often. When we do though, we really appreciate it.
I love early morning trips to the beach!! Like you, I don’t get there that often and when I do, I always wish I had the foresight to plan ahead and bring along a breakfast! This is a great idea as it’s a portable meal in one, good warm or room temperature!
Portable indeed – like a little edible laptop!
Ah!! Colazione al mare!!! What a cool and nice idea of having breakfast on the beach!!! Your recipe sound and look yummy!!!!
Grazie mille, era buonissimo!
Next time, I’m coming over for breakfast. Looks wonderful, but everything you make looks great.
Come on over, I´ll put the coffee on!
Hi Chica. My kind of breakfast. Looks delicious. Have a great weekend.
Thanks Florence, you too!
From the mountains to the beach…what a lovely day you must have had. Bravo for planning ahead for your lovely breakfast.
It was rare – I´m not usually that organised, but worth it! And yes, it was a lovely day 🙂
Mmmm that looks so delicious! It reminds me of Turkish spinach borek!
You´re right – hadn´t thought of it, but it was very similar!
You didn’t do the beach at the weekend did you? Fighting for space with all the families and their tables, umbrellas, chairs, coolboxes and paella dishes. So funny to watch though! I love the breeze down there, I haven’t actually been this year. Breakfast sounds like a great idea, before the crowds and the sun isn’t as strong. Maybe I should think about a picnic, acelgas quiche sounds perfect!!
No, we were wise and went mid week – it was a little busy, but not hectic!
Days like this, making a good memory – that’s what life is all about! Love the breakfast quiche, looks so easy and delicious 🙂
I agree, making new and happy memories is wonderful!
Looks and sounds so good! Love, Love, Love my picnics at the beach….RaeDi
Me too – apart from the sand in food!
