Chopped Fuji apple topped with Greek yogurt (yay, Trader Joe's!) and chopped roasted almonds. English breakfast tea with a bit of turbinado sugar added in. Needless to say, I got up before anyone else. :wink:

Long flax roll with soy nut butter, tahini, dessicated coconut, and BBQ sauce on it. Then placed under a broiler open face to let the coconut brown.

A slice of leftover thin-crust pizza with caramelized onions and mushrooms from last night, the usual coffee suspect, and a Honeycrisp apple.

I'm not a big breakfaster either but love it when I have it.

This morning I was starving. Two sm'eggs (what I call that real egg stuff in the cartons), scrambled with red onion, a bit of leftover braised pork steak and potato. Stuffed in flour tortilla quarters and topped with salsa verde. Coffee. Mango/lime juice.

Smoked Duck breast with free-range, hormone-free, farm-fresh egg, over-easy in some duck fat and clarified butter (hey, nobody said this was diet food !! Actually since breakfast seems to be a weekend meal for most of us, why not splurge ??)

Seriously, if you have not tried the D'Artagnan smoked duck breast, run to your grocer or order it from the D'Artagnan website, it is just fabulous. I usually eat this for breakfast (instead of beacon) or sometimes get their duck (leg) confit.

I made my daughter's chocolate chip and came up with this method to avoid the melted chocolate on the skillet: Pour the pancakes and sprinkle on the chips, then dab on a bit of batter on each chip before turning each one.




ooh, thanks for the great idea...this morning I made buttermilk pancakes and i made S/O's with bananas. I make these pancakes in a cast iron pan and when i flipped the banana pancakes, the banana left some residue so the subsequent pancakes stuck a bit.

My favorite part about this breakfast is not the pancakes themselves (which are delicious) but all the Stuff i serve with them: maple syrup, lemon curd, Nutella, various jams and marmalades.....S/O sticks with the Sarabeth's Peach Apricot, but I have to have a little bit of everything (one at a time) on each one.

You can also sprinkle granulated maple sugar on the top of a pancake just prior to flipping it over. The sugar carmelizes and is just yummy. (sorry, to those who object to using words like "yummy", but it really is!)
I sprinkle it on my "mock" French toast, which is bread pudding, baked in a loaf pan then chilled, sliced and cooked on a griddle. Quick, no mess and the flavor is exactly the same, only better.

What a wonderful breakfast idea. Thanks for the recommendation of the D'Artagnan smoked duck breast. I'm drooling again... The eggs you cook rule!

This morning Russ made us sandwiches of sausage, egg, and cheese on toasted bread, with some of our big sage leaves in between the sausage and the cheese.

I'll be having a repeat of last night's quick supper: A sandwich made of rosmarino, provolone and garden-fresh tomato (the last one!) on ciabatta, lightly spread with Dijon on one side and mayo on the other.

Fabulous!

Rosmarino is ham, "massaged" with dried rosemary, then oven roasted. Imported from Italy. Has a fantastic flavor! New find for me...I bought it at Costco in the imported meat/cheese refrigerated section. Highly recommended!

Love it!

This morning for breakfast I had brunch at the bar on our porch. It was a pasta fritatta/omelet/pie thingie using left over pasta, some of the leftover Brussels sprout leaves and pancetta, and freshly squeezed OJ.

Wow! You're having a good run of it in PEI! Had the kids at the driving range on Sunday myself ... all the golf I can handle really. :biggrin:

Before we left, J made us Buttermilk Pancakes with Hazelnuts, served with Cranberry-Maple syrup. The syrup is amazing!

Coffee ... tripple latte made with JJ Bean Nero Forte beans. Love my Saeco!

cafe con leche made by my adoring husband, hard boiled egg with salt. I love hard boiled eggs! Lately my husband has been doing them with the method I taught him (eggs in cold water to cover, bring to a boil, cover and turn off heat, 11 mins, rinse with cold water) and has been doing a kick ass job! No grey around the yolks and just cooked so they are a bit creamy in the middle. yummmmmm........ and just like in Paris I leave the hard boiled eggs on the counter in a cute little bowl and we grab them for a few days.

Great idea! The only time I have done that is at Easter. Why not at any other time? Thanks. :smile:

Has anyone tried poaching eggs in milk/cream? The texture of the egg is like a normal poached egg, but picks up a bit of the sweet taste from the milk.

I will make it this weekend and post the pics.

My current daily breakfast is coffee and egg drop soup. I'm in a phase. One of my favorite breakfasts that I used to take to the office was miso soup and an Iggy's roll with taleggio. I love soup for breakfast! Oooh, spinach soup with hard boiled egg is also fantastic.

My first post, I'm so excited. :biggrin:
