Recipes that use minimal water

Cape Town are fast approaching day zero. My understanding is that Day Zero means no more water coming out of the taps! It is a pretty dire state of affairs but David read a state last week that said SIXTY PERCENT of Cape Town residents are not saving water! Seriously guys? No amount of money can make water miraculously appear from the earth if there is none!

Anyway I know a lot of people are actively trying to find ways to save water so I have a few recipes that use minimal dishes which means less dishes to wash up, which means less water. 

These apple toasties are perfect for breakfast or lazy weekend food and all you need is a cutting board, sandwich toaster and plates. You could use paper plates or one big plate and let everyone take from there.

You only need 1 baking tray, a grater, cutlery and plates for these breakfast buns! 

You can make these buns with any fillings of your choice; we have opted for ones with bacon, egg and cheese or ones with cherry tomatoes, egg and cheese.Breakfast Buns|HarassedMom

Ingredients
  1. 1 packet Sasko Jumbo Sesame White Bread Buns (3 buns per packet)
  2. 200g packet Streaky Bacon or 200g Cherry Tomatoes (halved)
  3. 3 Extra-large Eggs
  4. 60g Gouda/Cheddar Cheese (grated)
  5. Fresh Parsley (if desired)
  6. Salt and Pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180*C
  2. Place the bacon or the cherry tomato halves onto a baking tray (season the cherry tomatoes with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil). Bake until the bacon is crisp or the tomatoes have softened (approx. 15 min).
  3. Cut the tops off the buns and scoop out the bread from the centres to create ‘bread bowls’ and place onto a baking tray.
  4. Divide the bacon/tomatoes between the buns to form the bottom layer.
  5. Crack an egg into each and top with equal amounts of cheese.
  6. Season with salt, pepper and a dash of chopped, fresh parsley.
  7. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until the buns are golden brown and the eggs are cooked to your liking (place the lids in for the last 5 minutes to crisp up.)
  8. Serve hot.

Water shortages aside, I am all for cooking that uses less dishes because it means less cleaning up.
