Biltong is exceptionally diverse, which means that it can be integrated into meals any time of the day. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and even snack time are all perfect times to enjoy some tasty biltong. Since it also packed with protein, biltong is the perfect breakfast food, as it will give you the energy you need to carry on with the rest of your day.
Biltong is great in scones
Scones are a breakfast favourite, as they can be sweet or savoury. Biltong is filling and adds a salty, smoky flavor to the scones. Biltong scones can be made using grated or chopped biltong, as well as milk, flour, butter and an egg. The result is a crunchy outside and soft inside. Add some butter when warm and you have yourself the perfect breakfast treat.

Biltong goes great in muffins
Another breakfast favourite, muffins are great on the go, or as a perfect snack to throw in your bag for later in the day. Since the majority of muffin varieties are sweet, it’s nice to mix things up with delicious biltong and feta cheese muffins. These muffins are a bit more complicated to make than the scones, and use more ingredients, but they will keep your appetite and your taste buds satisfied right up until lunchtime.

Biltong tastes great in tarts
Tarts might not be as common of a breakfast food, but they sure are delicious and filling. Not to mention that they combine both sweet and savoury aspects to create the perfect taste balance. Biltong, sweet onion and blue cheese tarts combine sliced biltong, crumbly blue cheese, sea salt, cream, and strips of onion together in a light, puff pastry. You’ll never eat cereal again.
