@percyn - are those maitake (a.k.a. "hen of the wood") mushrooms something you get locally grown, frequently or otherwise?

I love them and a local grower used to have at a certain local Farmers' Market them but they proved to be too much bother (and was a touch-and-go financial proposition) so they gave it up - and I have haven't had really fresh stuff since then.

@liuzhou:

That black "crab roe" - I am assuming this is "stained"/dyed form of normal crab roe? I've always thought that crab roe other than orange-ish in color were artificially colored as I don't know of crab species that produce black roe - but perhaps you could fill me in? (A quick Google & internet search turned up nothing certain)

Indeed it is dyed. It comes in various colours - black - red - yelllow. Same as the more common lumpfish roe is dyed.

Here is a variation on that breakfast:

Yes they are.

I am lucky to live not too far from a place that claims to be the "Mushroom Capital of the world", so I can generally find most varieties cultivated in the US. These are still a little rare to find and I love the taste. Wish we could get the wide varities they get in France.

I buy them direct from the mushroom farmers when I can, otherwise rely on our local Wegmans to carry these, along with black truffles ;-)

What lovely breakfasts you all have! I try not to read the breakfast thread until later in the day. Otherwise I’m in the kitchen frying bacon and eggs and rummaging in the freezer for biscuits. My new diet is working quite well (10+ lb. loss) and this thread, oddly enough, is the one that will bust it. Anyway, a quick dive into the thread to post Mr. Kim’s breakfast from yesterday:

I was experimenting for brekkie today:

I got this for christmas - silicone molds for making ice shot glasses.... but I had other things in mind:

Plain egg whites into the molds, and baked at 300 - took way too long, wish there was a better method. Ideas?

Egg yolk cooked with MUCH sriracha and stuffed inside:

The 'cups' had too many bubbles in them, which made them wobbly. I think I should have 'forked up' the whites before dumping them in the molds. Also, it was very difficult to keep the yolk runny.... I just need to experiment some more...

So much bacon & egg! I took a slightly healthier (aka inferior) approach after the Christmas glut to try and appease my vital organs a little.

Caramelized apple and hazelnuts with Greek yogurt, cardamon and pomegranate molasses. One granny smith apple sliced and caramelized with hazelnuts, sugar and butter. Served on the yogurt that was sprinked with a cardamon heavy mix of cardamon, cinnamon, pimento and nutmeg. A small drizzle of pomegranate molasses over the top for extra tang.

Ben, welcome to eGullet and the Breakfast thread! Nice looking breakfast. Did you use green or black cardamon?

Thanks percyn. I used green cardamon. It's easier to obtain here, so was the only one sitting in my cupboard!

      Omelette with courgette and tomato salsa.
       
      Today I added a bit of chili pepper to tomato-basil salsa. Because it was quite spicy I decided to add it to a mild dish. I prepared an omelette with courgette and goat cheese. The salsa added an excellent piquancy to it. I recommend this dish for a fast and light meal.

      Ingredients:
       
      omelette
      3 eggs
      150g of courgette
      3-4 slices of goat cheese
      2 tablespoons of milk
      1 tablespoon of flour
      1 tablespoon of butter
      salt and pepper
       
      salsa
      2 tomatoes
      3 tablespoons of minced basil
      quarter of an onion
      2 cloves of garlic
      half a chili pepper
      3 tablespoons of olive oil
      2 tablespoons of lemon juice
      1 teaspoon of honey
       
      Start by preparing the salsa. Cube the tomato and dice the garlic, onion and chili pepper. Mix the vegetables together. Make a sauce with the olive oil, lemon juice and honey. Add it to the vegetables and mix it in. Leave in the fridge.
      Slice the courgette very thin. Whisk the eggs with the milk and add the flour. Spice it up with salt and pepper. Melt the butter in a pan. Pour half the egg mass into it and fry for a while at medium heat. Arrange half of the courgette slices on top along with the slices of goat cheese and the rest of the courgette. Pour the rest of the egg mass onto it and fry it. When the eggs have congealed, turn the omelette upside down and fry for a few seconds. Serve at once with the tomato salsa.

      Enjoy your meal!

      Holiday brunch.
       
      During the holiday, eating is a waste of time for my children. Although breakfast should be a balanced and calm meal, at this time it is eaten quickly and carelessly. Sometimes I need to wrest my children away from their play and nourish their young bodies with brunch.

      Today I would like to share with you the recipe for a very simple egg and vegetable brunch. Though my children like all vegetables, the look of the food made them anxious. Only the soft boiled eggs settled them down and got them eating. After a while there were two empty glasses in the dishwasher and my children could go back to playing. It was good, because the holiday is almost over.

      Ingredients (for 3 people)
      half an onion
      2 cloves of garlic
      1 tablespoon of butter
      300g of courgette
      1 red pepper
      2 tomatoes
      2 sprigs of rosemary
      2 sprigs of thyme
      3 tablespoons of minced chives
      3 eggs

      Dice the onion and garlic and fry them in butter. Remove the core from the tomatoes. Cube the courgette, tomatoes and red pepper. Put one of the cubed tomatoes to one side. Add the second tomato and the rest of the vegetables to the onion and stew on a low heat for 10 minutes. Boil some water and carefully put the eggs into the water. Boil for 5 minutes. Cool them down and carefully remove the shell. Mix the stewed vegetables in with the rest of the tomato. Spice it up with salt and pepper. Put the vegetables into a cup. Arrange the eggs on top and cut them up with a sharp knife. Spice up the egg with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the chives.
      Serve at once.

      Enjoy your meal!

      Raspberry porridge
       
      Today, I used the best part of my raspberry shopping for my summer second breakfast. I recommend it for those who only drink coffee in the morning. The rolled oats and chia seeds ensure that it satisfies our hunger very well, and the empty bowl means that you are sorry the dish was so small.

      The inspiration for this dish comes from "Smaki życia" ("Flavour of Life") by Agnieszka Maciąg.

      Ingredients:
      100g of raspberries
      3 teaspoons of honey
      3 tablespoons of rolled oats
      2 teaspoons of chia seeds
      decoration
      3 teaspoons of natural yoghurt
      raspberries, blueberries, banana slices, cashews, sesame seeds

      Mix together the rolled oats with the chia seeds, pour in some hot water and leave for 20 minutes. Wash the raspberries and drain them. Leave a few nice bits of fruit for decoration. Blend the rest of the raspberries with the rolled oats, chia seeds and honey. Put it into a small bowl. Put the natural yoghurt on top. Decorate with the banana slices, blueberries, raspberries, sesame seeds and cashews.

      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.
