Many say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and when breakfast looks and tastes this good... we 110% agree.
Here's a little announcement: we are now developing cooking recipes too! It's something we've been working on secretly for a while now, but we're finally ready to reveal it. As always, you can expect the same level of dedication we take towards developing savoury recipes as we do for our signature sweet ones!
So when Cote Maison engaged us specially to develop recipes for fans of their popular Bruno Hotplate, we knew we had to whip up a dish that has something for everyone.
This breakfast set has all your food needs covered, from carbs and protein to healthy fats that’ll fill you right up and leave you satiated for the day ahead.
I studied in Melbourne for 8 years and it was such an amazing time. My only qualm is that Melbourne has gotten me absolutely spoiled rotten when it comes to breakfast and brunch.
But of course, like any international student living overseas, constantly eating out burned a huge hole in my pocket. So, I taught myself how to cook my own brunch at home - from pancakes and waffles to baked eggs and now... here we are!
When we hear rosti, I bet most of us think of Marche's signature rosti. Warm, buttery pockets of potatoes with a crunchy, golden-brown exterior, seasoned perfectly to match anything from plump bratwurst, to smoked salmon and even something as simple as sour cream. Yum. So for this breakfast set, we decided to recreate homemade potato rosti, with an added spin.
We grated the potatoes until they are thin, slender shreds so they cook quickly and evenly in the pan. Sprinkling salt here does more than just flavour - it draws out the water from the potatoes, which is crucial for an extra crispy outer layer. You can add any herbs you like, but we decided to go with sage leaves and minced garlic for an earthy aroma.
The Bruno Multiplate attachment is a non-stick pan with 6 separate cooking surfaces, making it incredibly easy for us to cook a few components at one go. Everything in this dish only took us a total of 15 minutes to cook!
We chose to grill our mini sausages and tomatoes in the rounds by the side and the potato rostis in the middle. For a vegetarian option, feel free to substitute the meat with your desired protein choice like tofu!
If you don’t have a Bruno Multiplate, you can use non-perforated tart rings or round egg moulds and place them onto a regular non-stick frying pan to achieve the same shape. Otherwise, you can also grate enough potatoes to fill up a whole pan for a giant potato pie that everyone can share! Cook the potato rosti first, then remove it from the pan before cooking your choice of sides.
To tie everything together, we chose to pair this dish with avocado to help elevate the dish's taste, texture, and appearance. For an extra photogenic plate, slice and swirl each avocado-half into an avocado rose before placing it onto the rosti!
Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of chives to cut through all the richness, and you’re done! A perfect breakfast set that’ll leave you feeling so satisfied, you won’t even miss having brunch in a cafe.

For busy moms and working adults with tight schedules, cooking a healthy meal from scratch can be an energy-draining and tedious thing to do, especially after a long day.
The Bruno Hotplate hence offers a one-pan solution for days where you want a quick and delicious meal, without too much cleanup. Each set comes with a machine, hotplate, takoyaki attachment, and a wooden spatula. The Multiplate attachment can be purchased separately and swapped with the other attachments depending on what you are planning to make. For ideas on how to use the Bruno hotplate attachment, check out how we made these Orange Dark Chocolate Mini Crepe Cakes here!
