Half Moon Browned Omelette


  • 2 teaspoons Morocco Gold extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed baby kale or spinach
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon crumbled goat or feta cheese


  1. This delightful half-moon browned omelet from cookinglight.com is an unfussy way to keep taste high and saturated fat low.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon Morocco Gold extra virgin olive oil in an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; sauté until golden, about 3 minutes. Stir in kale and half of salt; stir about 30 seconds or until kale is just wilted. Place the mushroom mixture on a plate or in a small bowl.
  3. Wipe pan clean. Step 2 Break eggs into a small bowl. Use a fork to beat them like Will Ferrell's cowbell until completely blended and slightly frothy. Stir in the remaining salt and pepper. Step 3 Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in the same pan, over medium now. Add eggs; stir them around the pan with a heatproof rubber spatula like you're making firm scrambled eggs, pulling from the sides toward the middle.
  4. Tilt the pan now and then, lifting the egg disk that forms so runny egg slides off, hits the pan, and firms up. After about 2 minutes, when the eggs are slightly shiny on top in spots, but mostly cooked through, spread the mushroom mixture over half of the eggs; sprinkle with cheese. When the eggs are browned on the bottom, fold them over the filling.
  5. Slide omelette onto a plate.

Maple-Glazed Bacon Wrapped Dates

Maple Glazed Bacon Wrapped Dates


  • 50g walnut halves
  • 1 tsp Morocco Gold extra virgin olive oil
  • 15g fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 200g soft pitted dates
  • 14 rashers smoked streaky bacon, halved
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup


  1. These mouth-watering maple-glazed bacon wrapped dates from RealfoodTesco need not be just for Christmas! They are a guaranteed Dad pleaser too!
  2. Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Line 2 baking trays with foil. Chop the walnuts, then tip into a bowl with the olive oil, parsley and lemon zest. Season and mix well.
  3. Using a teaspoon, fill each date with the walnut stuffing and pinch to enclose.
  4. Wrap each date with a piece of bacon, securing in place with a cocktail stick. Arrange on the baking trays and brush with the maple syrup. Bake for 20 mins until the bacon is crisp, turning halfway through cooking. Cool for 5 mins before transferring to a serving platter. Scatter with any remaining herby filling.

Mediterranean Inspired Father’s Day Brunch

Father's Day Brunch


  • 4 slices sourdough and chosen spread.
  • ½ tbs Morocco Gold extra virgin olive oil
  • 250g baby plum tomatoes – sliced into halves.
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tsp milk
  • Red chilli, sliced
  • 50g feta cheese (more if you like)
  • 50g chorizo slices
  • Handful flat leaf parsley – roughly, chopped
  • Black pepper


  1. And finally, this ray of Mediterranean sunshine is packed full of flavour and health benefits. Whatever age your Dad is, he will thank you for introducing him to the health benefits of extra virgin olive oil for years to come.
  2. Toast your sourdough and cover with your chosen spread.
  3. Quickly fry the baby plum tomatoes in Morocco Gold extra virgin olive oil, scramble your eggs spiked with the fresh chilli slices and quickly crisp up the chorizo.
  4. Load up the sourdough with the chilli scrambled eggs, crumble over the feta and top with crispy chorizo, serve with a side of fried baby plum tomatoes.
  5. Sprinkle the whole lot with freshly chopped parsley and cracked black pepper.
  6. Note: as an alternative you can go veggie and skip the chorizo, swap the chorizo for crispy bacon or skip the chilli if you don’t like heat. If you don’t have the time to rustle up this delicious treat for Dad (or you’re unable to be with him this Father’s Day), why not do the next best thing and send him a bottle of Morocco Gold to brighten up his own store cupboard.
  7. Serve your brunch to a surprised father.
