Breakfast! The most important meal of the day (2012)

395 posts in this topic

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.

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.

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:

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.

What great combinations, Percyn and Bruce! All of them would be my choice any day. :rolleyes: I'll have to remember to work on these combinations next time I have leftovers.

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.

      My long-time Bullet gave up the ghost over the weekend and since we had a couple of free hours and were in the States...where the Walmarts are different from those in Canada...I went smoothie blender looking.
       
      We found a suitable Hamilton Beach 'Go Sport' Blender and brought it home.  The specs looked good and the price was just fine.
       
      HOWEVER...two major flaws in this blender which are worth noting.
       
      1.  The blender bottle opening is quite narrow and I need a modified funnel to get my ingredients into it with ease.  Rats.  OK.  I can do this.
       
      2.  And even worse.  This unit has NO protected blending blades.  That is, if you plug the unit in, put the cutting blades into the unit and turn the unit on and are being stupidly careless...as we have all been known to be...you can get your fingers cut to ribbons!!  (No, I did not do it.  Yet.)  Now, the directions do tell you THE safe way to use the blender...but they don't make any reference to the fact that you...OR MORE IMPORTANTLY, A CHILD...could massacre their fingers in this unit.  I was really surprised.  I can't recall the last electrical kitchen appliance which was so open to misuse and accident.  Almost all must have all the protective units in place before the blades will even work.   You'd have to do something truly unusual to hurt yourself using one.  (OK.  Go ahead.  Post all the exceptions to my statement.  )
       
      I post this just in case.

      Does anyone have a recipe for Fake Bacon please?
       
      I have been vegetarian now for about 3 months.  So far it is going very well and I am looking to widen my range of recipes without meat.  I am not sure that going down the path of making imitation meets is the best approach but I do enjoy vegetarian soy based sausages and mince (ground beef) -  So perhaps an imitation bacon will be good too.
       
      If you have any favourite recipes for fake bacon that you wish to share, that would be appreciated.
       
      Regards

      As far as I understand, noodles are a common breakfast dish throughout south-east Asia. Curry laksa, for example, is a breakfast noodle dish in Penang, Malaysia; commonly called curry mee by the locals. This is just one example I know of first hand, but I'm certain there are many others.
       
      Do you know of other breakfast noodle dishes? Or books on the subject?
       
      Keep in mind that I'm interested in noodle dishes specifically, not just any type of breakfast. I'll keep that broader topic for a different thread.

      Breakfast has become a problem at our house. We no longer get up at the same time and we no longer eat the same things every day for breakfast. So I have been searching for power/nutrition/energy/granola/health/power/etc bars to make for me to eat. DH doesn't eat them. Well, not at breakfast anyway.
      Recently a new cookbook, Power Hungry: The Ultimate Energy Bar Cookbook by Camilla V. Saulsbury has come out and I have started making a few of the bars in it. Some are excellent, some not wonderful, others way too sweet for me. The first section contains recipes for well-known "knock-offs". The only commercial bar we've tried is a Clif bar and both thought it was awful. I suspect that most of them are too sweet for our personal tastes. (To generalize wildly: Canadians are less addicted to sugar than Americans...more addicted to salt.)
      The book includes recipes for vegans and for folks who can't tolerate gluten. Lots of variations given with each recipe.
      I am proposing to go through the entire book of 30 recipes, making one after another, to find the ones which suit me. I'll report back on this. (Give me a purpose for surviving this horrible cold winter. ) Maybe someone else has the book, has tried some recipes, and is interested in this.
      Saulsbury also has a blog, http://powerhungry.com/ , in which she has posted some bars which are not in the book. I haven't figured out exactly which ones are repeated in the book yet.
      Should have added Europeans generally like less sugar than do Americans. Don't know about Aussies or other countries...
