That looks good !  I found that i like French Toast best when I've an open-grained bread, and I soak it long enough in the egg that it's wet through.  I can then cook it hot enough to brown but stay moist in the crumb.


QUIET!  People are trying to pontificate.

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.

Maybe add chicken liver pate?

Nah. I think the point of French toast is to use up stale bread (pain perdu) and when you start adding stuff that isn't a pantry staple then you've missed the point. Some could argue that parmesan cheese isn't a pantry staple but it is in my house. Many thanks for the suggestion though.

Looked in the fridge this morning and saw a few sad stalks of asparagus hiding in plain sight behind the miso. So miso + butter on toast topped by sauteed asparagus and a slowly fried egg a la John Besh.

Eggs baked in tomato sauce with thyme and parmesan. An exchange of instant messages with my granddaughter about chocolate led to very overcooked eggs!

Quasi-prawn mee.  Shrimp shells simmered in water w/ a little Himalayan salt & peanut oil.  Shells removed. Indomie Penang Har Mie instant noodles cooked in this, plus tau foo pok (deep-fried tofu puffs), shelled wild American shrimp (tails on), Romaine lettuce heart leaves.  Freshly deep-fried sliced shallots & chopped scallions scattered onto the bowled stuff.

These are lovely pictures, but this morning I had a large artisanal marshmallow, toasted in the oven, and served in bed.  With espresso.

 

I need to stand up for my peeps.  Those of us who don't "cook" for breakfast.  Much.


I like to bake nice things. And then I eat them. Then I can bake some more.

robirdstx – I have become addicted to English muffins lately – sometimes with eggs and sometimes just with about a half a stick of butter :blush: !

 

Ann – beautiful sausage gravy!  It looks absolutely fantastic, as do your biscuits.  And I agree with Ashen – that breakfast is perfect.  The toast is a thing of beauty.

 

gfweb – those potstickers are lovely.  I love how thin the skins are.

 

Mr. Kim’s breakfast yesterday morning:

Salami & Cheddar omelet.  I had a slice of a local bakery’s fantastic pecan ring that I only buy when we have company because I will eat one in a day :unsure: .

Quiche for one: one egg, 1/4 cup half and half, grated cheese, chopped leftover roasted asparagus, baked in a ramekin. I don't use crusts on my quiche.

Anna, tell me about the eggs.  I've never heard of this before.  What is the taste difference between the oven and just making hard boiled eggs on the stove top?  I see they look a little browned.

Sunday brunch:

13037975853_657c5a1b75_z.jpg

Beets, citrus, walnuts

The beets were roasted Saturday evening, then macerated with fennel fronds, Meyer lemon juice, crushed fennel seed and sea salt overnight. This mixture was then combined with chopped clementine orange, walnuts and scallion, and dressed with a Meyer lemon vinaigrette (1 teaspoon clementine juice, 3 tablespoons Meyer lemon juice, 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt and black pepper to taste.)


13037829525_264198dea8_z.jpg

Scrambled eggs (2 eggs, sea salt, black pepper, 2 tablespoons milk) with champignon mushrooms (chopped champignon mushrooms (otherwise known as white button mushrooms, the kind you get in your supermarket), sautéed in olive oil, with chopped shallots, slivered scallion, sea salt and black pepper) and green mango pickle.

Early breakfast:

 

Finely sliced shallots sautéed w/ olive oil, a half-dozen cloves of garlic (very lightly crushed, de-skinned) tossed in, then finely chopped green cabbage (lots) plus a couple spoonfuls of rendered chicken fat/schmaltz.  After stirring around on high heat a good splash of chicken broth added, the mixture stirred/tossed and left to cook a minute or so.  Blended w/ leftover ground chuck–tomatoes–onion–celery sauce (from here), a stick of cinnamon (broken into two) pushed into the mix and everything covered and simmered for a short while.  Left for a few hours then reheated & served with and over fresh radiatore [Nicole-Taylor's], garnished w/ chopped parsley.
