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

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.

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...

Thank you, rod rock!

A little fuel before cleaning up after the storm.

Scallop fried rice: Bay scallops fried with garlic and dark soy; leftover rice, crab paste, roasted chile paste, fish sauce, and an egg.

Bruce - can you describe the crab paste product? Sounds like something to try. I like the dark bits you got - well seasoned wok?

Product is called "crab paste in soya bean oil". Normally one would use it in crab fried rice, but scallop fried rice seemed close enough.

I like the dark bits you got - well seasoned wok?

A very well seasoned cast iron wok. Seasoning would always peel off when I used a carbon steel wok, but I can beat on a cast iron wok with metal implements without any visible effect.

Full disclosure - black bits were probably more a result of sugar in the dark soy sauce combined with inattention. :blush:

Robirdstx – love the idea of putting fried eggs on top of leftover Mexican – I need to remember that next time!

Bruce – gorgeous fried green tomatoes. Don’t cry over the missed ripe tomatoes – green ones are just as glorious!

Christine – HI! Nice to ‘see’ you! I think that your ‘breakfast’ sounds great. Which sauce was that exactly?

Eggs, Neese’s NC sausage, biscuits and chips. The eggs were cooked using James’ method, but it doesn’t look like it because that sausage fat was HOT!

rotuts – I use tater tots a LOT with breakfast! The eggs are really easy – you can use oil or an oil/butter mix or just the grease left from cooking bacon or sausage. The bacon/sausage grease is decidedly better, of course. To get the crispy edges you need to get the fat very hot before you put the eggs in – if you do bacon or sausage, put the eggs in right after taking the meat out of the pan. So you dump the eggs in – the whites will bubble up. At this point you just tilt the pan slightly and use a spatula to move the grease over the top of the eggs. You’ll need to do it on all sides and turn the pan a bit. Try to splash mostly the whites and not the yolk or the yolk gets too hard. I’m probably making this more complicated than it needs to be. It’s a really easy, simple method. Maybe James could chime in – his explanation was much better than mine!

Bruce – thank you! It's really good to be back. Those biscuits are frozen ones – Mary B’s. I’m planning on using frozen biscuits for my revised Christmas Eve celebration and they were a test. Very good – and little tea biscuit sized which I like for a party. Mr. Kim would swoon over that breakfast!

Home fries with poached egg:

Obligatory broken yolk:

The yolk came out a tad firmer than I might have liked, but I loathe runny whites so am willing to risk a slightly firm yolk.

No pics. But a three-egg frittata with leftovers as filling: Sautéed cabbage, carrots, onions and diced kielbasa. Israeli couscous, and the fridge is cleared of the leftover bits in containers! A bit of diced sharp cheddar and Parmesan. A light sprinkling of home-made salsa. Slow-cooked nearly as low as possible for 20 minutes and then under the broiler to set the top.

Cooked perfectly, moist and tender sliding out of the pan onto the warmed plate with very little encouragement. I'd like to have the bottom less colored and crisped- perhaps next time just a couple minutes on the burner and the rest in the oven to bake pie-like?

A family favourite for brunch: Grilled cheese French toast. Would have been even better with cumin Gouda, but made do with Kraft Sharp Cheddar Singles...Gooey goodness...Eaten with maple syrup. :wub:

See that! Nice and easy breakfast for good morning from Dejah :)

Inspired I made this yesterday. A new take on and a marriage of two traditional mainstays. I used straight sharp cheddar though. This is comfort food at its finest!

Hangover breakfast of champions..a double-dose bloody mary and a sausage roll. My exec assistant is an insane pork-hound (not a euphemism) and he tells me this is Sydney's top SR. I have been guarding this baby in the work fridge for a day and a half, just waiting for the right moment to bring it home and ravage it.

Continuing my campaign to harden my arteries: eggs, fried in duck fat and piled onto a tortilla with tomato habanero salsa, and fried morcilla (black pudding). The tortilla was wholewheat, OK?!

Followed by a very strong Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk.

      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...
