There are heavy meals coming in the next month, and breakfast is no exception to the rich eating of the holidays. Here’s a welcome departure – a light and fresh breakfast recipe from Australia’s Donna Hay Magazine: Sweet Honeyed Ricotta with Brioche.

Fresh ricotta (try our quick recipe here!) is served with a syrup of honey and vanilla. It’s perfect with rich brioche, and just as nice with any good bread. We like the idea of serving this to holiday guests the morning after a heavy meal. With a platter of clementines and other seasonal fruit it’s a lovely light breakfast.
