Winner of the Aviko Great British Breakfast Revealed

⁣Following a search for the nation’s best breakfast dish, Aviko has crowned Bar Dos Hermanos as the winner of the Great British Breakfast competition.

To enter the Great British Breakfast Competition, chefs, caterers and operators were encouraged to share what it is that makes their breakfast great for a chance to win £500 and a month’s supply of Aviko Hash Browns and Aviko Hash Brown Bites.

Situated in Leicester, Bar Dos Hermanos has been awarded the title of ‘Great British Breakfast’ for its Classic English Breakfast which allows customers to build their own breakfast.

Andy Hussain, owner of Bar Dos Hermanos comments:
“At Bar Dos Hermanos we offer our breakfast and brunch menus at the weekends and wanted to create a bespoke offering that would excite our customers and give them a reason to celebrate. We are delighted that our breakfast has been recognised and we think it is the opportunity for personalisation that makes it stand out. ”

“Our customers can build every element of their breakfast – even down to whether they would like smoked or unsmoked bacon and which sausages they would prefer. The choices don’t end there as they can select from fried, poached or scrambled eggs and three accompaniments including black pudding, griddled tomatoes, hash browns, beans, sautéed flat cap mushrooms or sautéed new potatoes to complete their breakfast.”

Attached to Bar Dos Hermanos is the Salvador Deli where a faster pace is required and the use of Aviko Hash Browns helps to achieve this.

Andy explains:
“Breakfast may be an occasion at Bar Dos Hermanos, but at Salvador Deli speed is essential. Our customers are gearing up for their day ahead and are looking for a high quality breakfast to keep them fuelled. Working with Aviko enables us to serve perfect hash browns every time in just a matter of minutes”.

Building on last year’s successful search, the competition forms part of Aviko’s Great British Breakfast campaign to highlight the importance of the breakfast and brunch to operators.

Mohammed Essa, Commercial Director UK and Ireland, Aviko, explains:
“With breakfast fastly becoming our most innovative market we wanted to celebrate the best and recognise the great work chefs and caterers are doing. Congratulations to Bar Dos Hermanos for winning the ‘Great British Breakfast’ with an entry that shows the profitability of providing consumers with the opportunity to pick their own breakfast items.”

“Customisation is a key trend that operators can make the most of for breakfasts, especially as our own research shows that 78% of consumers would like to see more breakfast customisation available when dining out-of-home^.”

To provide inspiration, Aviko has developed a selection of new recipes using the Golden Hash Browns and Hash Brown Bites to help chefs deliver a twist to breakfast menus. The options include Spanish Baked Eggs and Chorizo, a Breakfast Bruschetta, American pancakes with a hash brown, bacon and sausage, as well as a breakfast pizza. These can all be viewed at:

Mohammed continues:
“Our recipes showcase how chefs and caterers can use the versatility of hash browns to tap into a host of global trends. With 70% of consumers stating Hash Browns are an essential part of any breakfast, there is no better time for operators to create innovative menus with this breakfast staple^.”

Having supplied the foodservice industry for over 50 years, Aviko has a range of breakfast boosting items including the ultimate breakfast side, Aviko Hash Browns – which are larger than average for better plate fill – as well as Hash Brown Bites for both dine-in and on-the-go menus. The range also includes the innovative Bubble & Squeak Rounds and the new Sweet Potato Diced which offers real point of difference when served with a breakfast staple such as eggs.
