Cinnamon bagels with fruit & oat compote

Making the compote ahead of time makes this an ideal breakfast for bringing into work

  • Serves: 2

What you need:

  • 1 ripe pear, cored and diced
  • 250g rhubarb, sliced

  • 25g caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp oats
  • 2 cinnamon and raisin bagels

What you do:

  1. Place all the fruit and sugar in a medium saucepan with 1 tbsp water. Bring to the boil and cook covered for 5-6 minutes until softened but chunky. Add the oats and cool.

Farmhouse Breakfast Week 2011

Farmhouse Breakfast Week (23-29 Jan 2011) is back for its twelfth year, with a brand new theme – “Shake Up Your Wake Up”.  We’re challenging all breakfast skippers to rethink their morning routines, and make time for the most important meal of the day. As many as one in four consumers regularly skip breakfast, so we are keen to raise awareness of the benefits that can be gained by making that little bit extra time for breakfast.
