percyn – as always, I could happily tuck into any of your fine breakfasts

xilimms – that’s a beauty!

Easy-over eggs on potato rolls, topped with feta, fried shallot, cayenne, S&P, and Tapatio salsa . . .

The first strawberries of the season are in here in Carlsbad. So I made jam this morning. I'll have toast and jam for breakfast and probably more jam and whatever I can find to put it on all day long. Or just eat it with a spoon.

Over-easy (barely; I almost let it go too long!)egg, bacon, waffle made with masa harina. Sliced tomatos grown locally in a greenhouse, from the Farmers' Market.

After watching the dog watching me hungrily,

I decided to make a version for her. Bacon needed to be used, and hey, might as well fry two eggs as one.

We're both happy.

Xilimmns, did you just compress the Peaches or did you cook them as well?

I actually compressed and cooked them for 15 minutes at 73C. Next time I will cook a bit more hoping to extract a little more of the juices that I can use as a sauce for the french toast. Since these were quite firm peaches the cooking time softened them nicely.

Strawberries are already coming in!? It's my favorite food!

I was a bit surprised too. Almost a month earlier than last year. Probably because winter was so much sunnier than it was last year.

percyn – love the looks of your Mexican eggs Benedict!

Xilimmns – gorgeous peaches! I’m not sure those would have made it to the waffles in my house!

kayb – I make cornbread waffles for pulled pork, but never thought to put an egg on top. Great idea. And those sweet puggie eyes :wub: !

Saturday breakfast:

Eggs, biscuits, potato pancakes and canned corned beef. Canned corned beef is one of my guilty pleasures, leftover from childhood. What can I say, I love the stuff.

percyn – no, you are right – the canned corned beef is in no way comparable to the real stuff. But, if you don’t even really think of it as corned beef, it’s pretty good :wink: !

Breakfast this morning:

med_gallery_3331_117_175513.jpg

Baked eggs with Cheddar, bacon and chives and Benton’s bacon. I overcooked the eggs (they took much less time than usual :angry: ) but they still tasted great. Such an easy dish to make. And it’s a great one when you have company, because you can get your mise all done and just pop them in the oven on a tray when you are ready to eat.

The sauce is good stuff. I’ll let the proprietor know that he may be missing a market segment. :smile:

Parsi soft-scrambled eggs on toast – with ghee-fried onions, garlic-ginger paste, Thai bird chiles, and cilantro. Plates were licked, and licked clean.

Ahhh... Lasan Nu Edu (Garlic Eggs). Where did you get this recipe from Bruce? Try them with some ramps in spring - easy and delicious. My great uncle used to eat these everyday for breakfast, along with 6-7 other things.

I have yet to see ramps around here, but I will keep an eye out at the spring farmer’s markets. Thanks for the tip.

I have to ask - was your uncle making the "6-7 other things" himself? If so, he was far more energetic in the morning than I am. :laugh:

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.

Ahh...my Bombay Kitchen is a fine book....and thanks for the compliment.

My grandfather's brother was a bachelor who lived a few buildings away, so he would stop by around 9am by when the servants and women of the family would have made him these eggs, roti, toasts, butter, jam, fresh cream, tea, papads. As kids we used to make fun of that, but now I see he was just another person who loved his breakfast...like me :wink:

      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...
