Nigerian Breakfast Recipes

Breakfast meals in Nigeria are quick and easy to prepare. They are usually meals you can rustle up and eat before you dash out on a working day. Most Nigerians still prefer to eat leftovers from the previous day's dinner because they love it. For others, they do so due to lack of breakfast meal ideas. Some only take the good old bread and chocolate drink before dashing out to beat the rush hour.
