Hey folks! Truth be told, about 60 percent of us skip breakfast and a large percent are students.
Students tend to do little or no cooking because of the ever demanding nature of school.
Well, because you shouldn’t for any reason skip breakfast, five easy to prepare, less time consuming, light weight and healthy breakfast are here just for you!

1. Toasted sandwich:
Ingredients: 4 bread slices, butter, 1 tin of corned beef or 2 eggs
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Equipment: Sandwich toastmaker
Grease up insides of machine with butter to avoid bread from sticking
Lie flat two slices of buttered bread and add chunks of corned beef for a filling or egg whites and yolks
Place an additional slice on top each one and close up machine.
Leave to cook for 10 minutes.

Note-You can replace corned beef with mashed beef.

2.Flavoured custard:
200ml double cream
700ml whole milk
4 large egg yolks
3 tbsp cornflour
200g caster sugar(you can sub with granulated or cube sugar)
1 tsp vanilla extract(opt)
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Recipe (make-from-scratch):
Put the cream and milk into a large pan and gently bring to just below boiling point. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk the yolks, cornflour, sugar and vanilla. Gradually pour the hot milk mixture onto the sugar mixture, whisking constantly.
Wipe out the saucepan and pour the mixture back into it. Heat gently, stirring with a wooden spoon (see Steps 1 and 2, for stirring tips) until the custard is thick.

3. Pap (ogi or akamu):
Wet Corn Starch
Water (Hot and Cold)
Evaporated Milk
Sugar (to taste)
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Put some lumps of raw pap (wet corn starch) in a big bowl to accommodate eventual rising
Crush the lumps of pap into very small pieces with a tablespoon
Mix with cold water in small quantities till you have a medium consistency
Pour in boiling water slowly but steadily in a circular motion, stirring in the process
Stop stirring and reduce the flow of water you are pouring till the pap has completely set.
Add evaporated milk and some sugar to taste.

Note-Pap causes frequent urination, so take in moderation. You can also take with biscuits, bean cake etc.

4. Agidi or Eko:
1 cup corn flour (corn starch)
700mls (approx. 25 fl. oz. ) cold water
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Mix the corn starch/flour with the 700 mls of cold water in a pot.
Stir continuously with a wooden spatula even after it thickens to prevent lumps
Pour some water into pot and leave to simmer for about 10 minutes while covered on medium heat.

5.Bread and scrambled eggs:
Ingredients: 2 eggs, 1 tablespoon of milk, frying oil, salt to taste
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Beat egg whites, yolk and milk in a plastic bowl and season with salt
Pour into frying pan and stir gently with spatula as it thickens.
Leave to cook for a couple of minutes, and you’re good to go with a loaf of hot, fresh bread.

So there you go! Stay healthy!
