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

Recommended Posts

Kay – gorgeous eggs – wish I could get mine like that consistently.

Xilimmns – both the French toasts are lovely.

Bruce – question re: eating the burger/tortilla thing. Do you knife and fork it? Or do you somehow pick it up and eat it like a sandwich. Weird question, I know, but I’m trying to help add protein to Mr. Kim’s breakfasts and remove carbs, so something like that on a tortilla might be a good way to go.

Mr. Kim’s breakfast this morning:

Sliced fruit, sausage rolls and fried eggs. The eggs are another attempt at cooking Xilimmns’ eggs (cooked without turning and covering for the last bit), but I just couldn’t seem to get the hang of them. By the time the whites are set, the yolks are hard and if I pull them when the yolks are still shaky, the whites are snotty. Sigh. Will keep trying.

I went for scrambled:

These, on the other hand, turned out perfectly – set, but still nicely moist.

I asked myself the same question. :wink: Ended up cutting the burger in half, and wrapping each half in the tortilla. With benefit of hindsight, it would have made more sense to break up the burger and cook it in a little sauce.

Beautiful! I love mixing mozzarella with fresh tomato. I think that would go nice with this too!

Kay – love the idea of serving tamales with breakfast – I never thought of it, but they really make the perfect breakfast food.

percyn – what a perfectly cooked pancake! That is exactly how I want mine to look. And that monkey bread looks truly amazing.

Breakfast this morning was scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns and zucchini muffins

I don't have a picture handy, but one of my favorite breakfasts is 2 scrambled eggs with, JUST before taking off the heat, 1/2 a diced avodaco mixed in. The texture is sublime, totally decadent.

Here in Lancaster it is 10:30 at night and I am hankering for breakfast after looking at these photos.

I signed in to post a link to "Gogol Mogol - The Self-Cooking Egg Grenade" as they look like they would be fun to play with for a breakfast egg.

The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett

Ashen – that is some truly gorgeous peameal bacon. I am dying to try that stuff.

Stash – tomato salad looks fantastic.

Mr. Kim’s breakfast on Sunday was a mushroom and Jarlsberg omelet and sausage:

It is amazingly easy to make actually. It takes 5 or 6 days but most of that is brining and drying out time. actual hands on time was less than 30 mins.

I followed this recipe out of the The Art of Living According to Joe Beef.

Poached wild turkey egg, with cumin-spiced potatoes, spinach and heirloom tomatoes

there really isn't a recipe for this because it's something that I tend to vary over time, depending on what's available. the basic template goes something like this:

toast black mustard seeds, crushed green cardamom pods and chiles in ghee, then add some combination of garlic, thinly sliced onions, cumin, turmeric, salt and/or ginger, to which I then add potatoes and greens. tomatoes if in season. maybe a squeeze of lemon or lime. cilantro to finish, if I have it on hand. top with a poached egg.

I had leftover heirloom tomatoes and chives, so used those for the garnish.

I'm on vacation until next Monday so there's going to be a lot of cooking at Casa Soba. :wink:

Corned buffalo brisket hash, with a duck egg. Not as good as it should have been for the effort it took to corn and cook the brisket. I'm done corning; the deli will have to do mine.

003.JPG

The corned brisket looked respectable enough when finally tender (48 hrs sous vide, 2 1/2 hours stovetop simmer). The homemade biscuits with bacon jam, however, were worth the slip off the gluten-free wagon.

This morning, country bacon, "Methodist" latkes (fried in bacon fat!), and a sunnyside up egg.

      Couldn't find a topic devoted to sourdough discard cooking, so thought I would start one and see how much interest it would generate. Moderators, if there is a topic, please merge.
       
      Recently I have begun making sourdough bread and am caring for a sourdough starter. Since there is currently some difficulty finding flour (due to COVID-19 related supply chain issues, etc.) I don't want to throw out any of my sourdough starter. I am also following guidance from King Arthur Flour and Cooks Illustrated for working with a small sourdough starter (10 g. flour | 10 g. water | 10 g. sourdough starter) and using recipes that use smaller amounts of sourdough starter or only building my starter up if called for by a recipe.
       
      I have made the following recipes and would make them again:
      - King Arthur Flour sourdough discard crumpets. https://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/sourdough-crumpets-recipe
      - King Arthur Flour sourdough discard waffles. I used a mix of yogurt & milk instead of buttermilk but otherwise made the recipe as written.  https://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/classic-sourdough-waffles-or-pancakes-recipe
       

       

       
      What are you doing with your sourdough discard?

      After a delightful brunch at Koslow's Sqirl restaurant in Los Angeles, I've decided to attempt to cook through her cookbook. I'll post my results here.
       
      Please follow along and join in, if you're so inclined. Her food is wonderful, but I will surmise that her true deliciousness comes from using the best and freshest ingredients. I'll do my best to recreate the magic I felt at Sqirl.

      Breakfast in India vs Breakfast in our homes outside India
      My breakfasts have varied from the time I started to cook for myself instead of just enjoying my Mother’s cooking. At first they were a mix-match of meal fixings, or just dinner leftovers. Or the good old breakfast cereal and milk. But as the years passed and I was more organized, the meals I enjoyed in my Mother’s home began to swim in my memories. And I began to prepare those for my family. However, I am no amazonian chef, so depending on  the hectic nature of the days plans, I switched back and forth from convenience with taste, to elaborate and of course tasty breakfasts. We do have both vegetarian and non vegetarian foods but Indian breakfasts will mostly be vegetarian. 
      So here are some of the things I might make: 
       
      1. Poha as in mostly ‘kande pohe’.
      2. Cheela/ Pudla
      3. Masala toast
      4. Indian Omelette
      5. Handwo piece
      6. Thepla
      7. Vaghareli rotli
      8. Dhokla chutney
      9. Idli sambhar
      10. Leftover sabji
      11. Muthiya
      12. Khakhra
      13. Upma
      14. Paratha
       
      1. Kande Pohe: 
      The dish derives its name from Maharashtra where the Kande Pohe are celebrated as breakfast. They can of course like any breakfast, be eaten at any time. 
      Pohe/ Poha are steamed rice grains that have been beaten flat and then again redried. So they are like Rice flakes. Except they are hand pounded, so have a knobbly texture. 
      You get several varieties in the market. I prefer the thick white variety. 
       
      1 cup dry poha per person
      1 medium onion sliced
      1/2 jalapeno deseeded
      1 sprig curry leaves
      2 small garlic cloves
      1/4 t cumin seeds
      1/2 lemon 
      1/8 t asafoetida
      1/4 t turmeric
      small handful of cilantro leaves
      1T fresh grated coconut
      2 T Peanut oil 
      salt to taste
      sugar to taste
       
      In a pan heat some oil and add cumin seeds. When the seeds sputter, add sliced onions and stir. Saute on medium heat till they turn slightly browned here and there. Do not burn the onions. 
      Meanwhile wash the Poha in a colander and drain. Do this two or three times to get rid of any dirt and also to allow them to rehydrate. They do not need soaking. Fluff the poha with a fork. Add salt sugar turmeric asafoetida and chopped cilantro. Mix and set aside. 
      Once the onions are ready add minced garlic and chopped jalapeno along with the curry leaf sprig. 
      Turn the heat to low and add the poha mixture. Stir to coat and to allow the turmeric and asafoetida to cook. The poha will turn mildly yellow and start giving a wonderful fragrance. 
      Turn off the heat. Fluff gently and plate. Garnish with fresh grated coconut and a squeeze of lemon juice. 
      Finger licking good!! 
      Now when I make this next I will post a picture. 
      Update: Ok I felt the urge to have Kande Pohe for tonight’s dinner. So here is a picture. I am certain to enjoy it for breakfast as well. The measurement of 1 cup poha per person is too much for one meal. But carried over to another meal thats super good! I will also have some stir fried bok choy greens made in the same kadhai after the poha was done, and some cooked and sliced beetroot for salad. My family will add some haldiram sev on the poha for extra crunch! And we will all have some chaas to round off this meal. 
      *************
       
      2. Cheela/ Pudla
       
      These are essentially crepes but in the Indian style. 
      1/2 cup sieved garbanzo bean (Besan) flour. 
      Water to form a thin batter
      1T plain yogurt 
      1/2 t ginger garlic paste 
      1/4 or less green chili crushed
      2 t heated oil *
      pinch asafoetida
      pinch turmeric 
      salt to taste
      chopped cilantro (two sprigs)
      some ‘masala’ from a readymade pickle
       
       
      Method:
       
      mix the ingredients together except oil. Heat oil in a separate pan and add about 1 to 2 t of the hot oil onto the batter. It will sizzle. Use a whisk to stir thoroughly. The batter should be pouring consistency. 
      Let the batter soak for about half an hour if possible. 
      On a hot griddle, pour a ladle full of the batter. Turn the griddle with your wrist to spread the batter around. Cook on moderate to high flame. Flip the crepe when all the sides look like they are ready. You can add a little oil to the sides of the frying pan to make the edges crispy. 
       
      In my home we usually have a Besan cheela with some yogurt its a quick and filling breakfast. You can have a small salad or fruit with it to make it more complete. Or fill the center of the cheela with some cottage cheese and fold for added creaminess! 
      ****************
      3. Masala Toast : 
       
      1 slice of bread (your choice) toasted
      1/2 small red onion minced
      1 medium roma tomato diced (or whatever you have)
      cilantro (few leaves)
      1/8 t cumin (optional)
      1/4 t chaat masala ( available in stores)
      1 inch cube paneer
      1 T peanut oil
      pinch turmeric (optional)
       
      Heat the oil in a pan and saute the onions. Add the tomato and cook down to mush. Crumble the paneer and add the dry spices. Stir for a few seconds to warm the paneer. Add the cilantro and though I have not written it as an ingredient, I like a few drops of lemon juice. Do not overcook paneer.
      I started this topic because someone asked for Indian recipes on the new forum. I don’t think they have seen any yet. I hope they find this useful. I am enjoying it. 
      **************************
       
      I will add recipes to the list slowly. I have to however add that after a certain ‘age’ I have now resorted to having to make sure I have three things for breakfast besides coffee: a glass of water, a small portion of fruit and a small portion of some protein not necessarily meat.
