(Leftover) Steak & Eggs for an EASY Gourmet Breakfast

Leftover Steak and Eggs

As the name implies…I made this dish with leftover steak we had from a braai one evening. Usually, I get all excited when there’s a piece of steak leftover because steak and eggs are one of my absolute favourite breakfasts EVER!

Back when I was a full-on banter…steak and eggs used to be my treat breakfast. I would strategically eat half of my steak at dinnertime just so that I could have the leftovers with eggs the following morning. However, I would be lucky if no one had devoured it as a result of night-time munchies. And it’s safe to say someone would suffer my wrath the next morning!

Anyway, the other morning I had the brainwave to mix things up a bit…and the Leftover Steak and Egg dish was born! A wonderful option if you’re having people over for breakfast, brunch or lunch because it’s very simple and easy to make – unless you still have to cook the steak (although, fresh steak is always tastier). In that case – try it as a lunch option instead. I added the convenience element here (leftover steak) because I really appreciate it when I’m still half asleep at breakfast time.

Tips for variation:

  • You can substitute baby spinach for rocket – which adds a lovely pepperiness.
  • Substitute Grana Padano for Parmigiano Reggiano – it has a stronger flavour.
  • Try a poached egg instead of a fried egg – for less calories (but more effort).
