Percyn: Thanks!

Clean-out-the-fridge fried rice: Leftover smoked baby back ribs, deboned and chopped; edamame, corn, and tomato salad; chopped onion, red curry paste, fish sauce, and an egg. Basmati rice grains stay separate, so they are much easier to work with compared to our usual jasmine rice.

Bruce – gorgeous fried rice! I’d eat that any time of the day or night! As a matter of fact, that would make the perfect midnight snack.

CulinaryLibrary – love the combination of lemon curd and blueberries on the pancakes and your blog is fantastic! I’ve bookmarked it to go back to.

percyn – the corned beef looks beautiful, but are there potatoes BESIDE the hash or in it? And the waffle? Is that chicken? Drool.

Breakfast this morning:
Posted Image
Neese’s sausage and CI’s yeast raised waffles with fig syrup. This was the first time that I’d tried the waffle recipe. These are probably the best waffles I’ve ever made – perfectly crisp outside and tender inside. Really easy, too, since you make the batter 12-24 hours in advance and bake them at breakfast time. The fig syrup was the sugar syrup left over from my efforts at candying figs. It was so good, I couldn’t throw it away.

Kim,
Those waffles sound and look awesome.

And Yes, that is fried chicken and waffles upthread and the potatoes next to the corned beef hash are homefries from a local breakfast place.

Hi guys, I don't generally have time for a nice breakfast, mine are generally boring , yours are great! Wish you could deliver :raz:
This week, incredible for me, I managed to make two breakfasts a bit more involved for my standards.

Huevos Cubanos:

Eggs with black bean, plantains and bacon.

We had this dish years ago in Veracruz, and finally got around to recreating it at home.

Franci, to me, that looks like a soft boiled egg out of the shell. What's your technique, if I may ask? TIA!

Breakfast yesterday was courtesy of my mother:

Smoked salmon and leek quiche and bacon. It was delicious. She uses a recipe similar to the CI one that I use – really fluffy and light and custardy.

Breakfast today:

Posted Image

Sliced Hard-Cooked Egg, Lightly Salted Avocado, Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss, and Wasa Sesame Flatbread

I cooked the egg using Alton Brown's steaming method - the yolk was very moist and creamy. The laughing cow cheese worked as a nice sub for the cream cheese I would normally have selected.

Fried rice with Spam is very popular on Guam for breakfast. Um, yes, islanders love the canned "meat" since the military introduced it to the island.

Bruce – those plantains are absolutely perfectly cooked – that picture could be in a magazine!

Paula – oddly enough, here in the land where Spam was born, I’ve never tasted it! But that fried rice looks like something that I’d like!

Breakfast yesterday:
Posted Image
Fried egg (James’ method), ET bagel w/ cream cheese and bacon. I had lots of excellent bacon grease, so the James’ method of basting the egg with the hot fat worked wonderfully well!

Thank you, Kim! Egg fried in bacon grease sounds really good.

Bruce – one of my life’s (many) guilty pleasures. Funny how when I was growing up bacon grease was a bit déclassé and countrified and now it’s considered liquid gold! Mr. Kim would love that omelet – the mushrooms are beautiful.

Robirdstx – Yum!

Fried green tomatoes have a lovely lemony tang. Cholula hot sauce applied after the picture. Mrs. C liked the firm ones; I preferred the contrast of softer tomatoes with crisp cornmeal crust. Different strokes . . .

We harvested a boatload of green tomatoes. The irony is that the tomato plants are located near a poorly-insulated part of the house so they never froze, and we could still be enjoying vine-ripened heirloom tomatoes. :sad: Oh, well.

A nice, soft and easy breakfast for my post-wisdom tooth removal mouth to handle - scrambled eggs and dal makhni. This is a great combo! Not just for those convalescing post-op :)photo (24).JPG

Hayley - not only does that sound amazing (sweet as) - because dal makhni is a family favorite - but I can feel your pain. Had a dentist make an 'oops' two days ago on a filling and am still swollen and hurting...
