Early breakfast yesterday:
 
Myojo Chukazanmai Oriental Flavor ramen (this one) w/ fresh (hydroponic) young Tuscan kale, quartered white mushrooms & Chinese roast duck.
.........

Oh hell. I'm licking the damn screen again. That looks so tasty. Chinese roast duck would require a trip to one of the Asian markets and with more snow on the way it won't likely happen this week. Oh well. Something to plan for the future.
Well I did make it to an Asian store after all and grabbed a duck. This was closer to brunch than breakfast but still...

The broth was some of the best I've made so far. Started with Cheater's Asian broth but added all of the duck bones. Let it simmer for a while, strained and adjusted the seasoning. Have a nice stash for future meals.

Heh.  Nice Duck Grab, Anna N.  Sounds like a nice stock you made, too!  It does look more like a "lo sui ngap" (滷水鴨) you got, was that what it was? (rather than roast duck)

Ah.  Well, "Lo Sui" ("Master Stock/water") is basically a spiced soy sauce marinade/master stock/sauce...

Had a really nice breakfast this morning.. Miss A made pancakes for  Miss K while the adults split a grapefruit and banana.  The grapefruit had  turbenado sugar.   I then made a three egg omelette with some leftover mushroom stems, a little tarragon and some gruyere.  We all split that.

Nice cheesy biscuits, Kay! I do online newspapers, too, but it's not the same.

 

Power came back on for the first time in four days, so I celebrated by making huevos rancheros

Blether you have nice bits on your potatoes - did you "rough them up" before the final roast?

Hi, Heidi. It being breakfast, these are (previously) steamed spuds, shallow-fried. These have been exceptionally floury: "the luck of the shop", if you like. You know how you buy 'floury' potatoes and sometimes they're more so than others ? That's what's happened here.  You steam or boil them (I've done both, my steamer was too small for the first batch), and when they're done the sides are just naturally flaking.

Ann - what is your preferred scrambling method - looks low & slow? And are there little treat bits of smoked salmon among the curds? Of course your bagels seal the deal.

Heidi, yes over low heat. Lots of butter.  Add the eggs and cook over low heat, stirring constantly.    What you are seeing is actually chopped tomato.

Liuzhou – lemony pancakes sound delicious!  How thick were the pancakes?

 

Anna – beautiful potstickers!  What were they filled with?

 

Huiray – your ramen and roasted duck soup looks so wonderful!

Sounds like a great breakfast to me! Had me humming that great Kris Kristofferson song with the lyrics

And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad
So I had one more for dessert!

Coffee.  Then tattie scones, eggs & collapsed tomatoes:

Then more coffee.  No music.

 

Nice work with the re-purposed meat, basquecook. We don't see much (if any) beef carpaccio in Tokyo any more, since a couple of years ago when a yakiniku joint poisoned some customers with their yukke.  I hope the day slows down for you later on.

Blether, great looking breakfast. I love the "collapsed tomatoes".  Never heard them called that before. 

 

Jay, Yum, home cured pork belly.   I prefer side bacon over regular bacon.

Thanks, Rod.  Thanks, Ann - yeah, I don't usually cook them quite that long !  Steak and eggs is a class act at any time of day, and you have me looking longingly at yours.

My husband loved French toast and would happily scarf it down for breakfast, lunch or dinner but I could never get my head around it. Far too sweet for me. So when I stumbled onto a recipe for a savoury version I jumped on it. What a disappointment! Eggs, cream, parmesan are the basics but it is flat, flat, flat despite the mustard powder, tabasco and lots of pepper. Oh well. I am happy to stick with bread fried in bacon fat when I feel a real need to clog my arteries.
