Summer in the southern hemisphere has well and truly arrived.

People are firing up their barbecues and breakfast at beach side cafes is a favorite weekend activity. And there's nothing like a hearty breakfast to start the weekend.

While for some the word 'hearty' may conjure up images of bacon and sausages, I'm offering up something less meaty but just as fulfilling -- poached eggs with sautéed garlic mushrooms on toasted Turkish bread with ricotta cheese. Accompanying this dish are Roma tomatoes slow-roasted with fresh thyme. This is a delightful breakfast I enjoy regularly at one of my favorite beach side haunts.
