What is the typical Estonian breakfast?
I know that many children like to eat for breakfast Kohuke. Teenagers like more some yoghurt, quark creams or cereals with milk. The adult eats some porridge or open sandwich: rye bread covered with sausage, ham, cheese or something. Egg in different ways… And like anywhere in the world, lot of Estonian families baking pancakes for Sunday morning.
My favourite workday breakfast is porridge. I cook oatmeal or multigrain mixture in the water. And I serve this with some butter and seeds mixture. My husband likes sweet additions. He serve his porridge with jam and butter and sour cream 🙂 🙂
But anyway. If you cooked too much porridge, there is one perfect recipe to use leftovers in a delicious dessert.
