Sous Vide Scrambled Eggs with Sourdough Toast. It's becoming a regular these days. Lovely texture from the eggs. I followed Mr.Myhrvold's recipe using 2 whole eggs and one yolk, with grated gruyere.

Xilimmns, I love sous vide eggs and the texture of those eggs looks amazing. Are those chives or thyme on the scrambled eggs?

Dejah, that sandwich is so mouthwatering, it is making me crave breakfast - and I just finishes dinner.

A few more breakfasts involving homemade corned beef

Welcome to eGullet Deb! Hope you are enjoying your summer. The cold weather in the Northern hemisphere makes me yearn for some ripe tomatoes.

Inspired by Dejah's sandwich below, I attempted to make one with what I had in my fridge:

Toasted Whole Wheat English Muffin, Fried Egg, Smoked Pork Shoulder, Cheese.

Methodist latkes, country bacon, farm egg. With locally-made apple butter (not shown).

Methodist because, well, they're fried in bacon fat (as was the egg). Not exactly kashrut.
Don't ask. Eat it.

What is it about oozy egg yolks that is SO damn delicious?! All of the above look great!

Seems runny yolks are becoming the "sauce of choice" on so many items offered on food trucks on Eat St. And yet, I've often been told I couldn't have a soft boiled egg at hotel restaurants. :huh:

7 more hours then I can have an oozy yolk! :rolleyes:

Yet another omelet, this time filled and topped with feta cheese, oregano, and a fried paste made from chipotle chile, garlic, lime juice, sugar, and salt.

This is breakfast prep rather than breakfast: I made an extra-large bowl of mash last night so that I could make tattie scones today. Look out for them appearing here again soon.

percyn, those all look good. If forced to choose, I would take kheema on scrambled eggs.

Mexican scrambled eggs, with roasted garlic and serrano chiles, tomato, white onion, cumin, and oregano, topped with more oregano and feta cheese.

Thanks Bruce and Dejah. Once you start making these, if you are like me, you may start intentionally saving some leftovers to make breakfast.

Gorgeous breakfasts, folks! I have a couple to add – not nearly as yummy looking as y’all’s!

The toast is from a loaf of cheese and chive beer bread that I made from a mix – it was surprisingly good.

Sausage, eggs and potato pancakes made with leftover herbed cream cheese potatoes.

mm84321,
Good to see you on this thread. What kind of egg is that? Looks like a custard or bisque.

More Fried Egg - this time with Chorizo and Hollandaise on an English Muffin. Sort of like a Mexican Eggs Benedict.

The first strawberries of the season are in here in Carlsbad. So I made jam this morning. I'll have toast and jam for breakfast and probably more jam and whatever I can find to put it on all day long. Or just eat it with a spoon.

Over-easy (barely; I almost let it go too long!)egg, bacon, waffle made with masa harina. Sliced tomatos grown locally in a greenhouse, from the Farmers' Market.

After watching the dog watching me hungrily,

I decided to make a version for her. Bacon needed to be used, and hey, might as well fry two eggs as one.

We're both happy.
Don't ask. Eat it.
