Ann - what is your preferred scrambling method - looks low & slow? And are there little treat bits of smoked salmon among the curds? Of course your bagels seal the deal.

Heidi, yes over low heat. Lots of butter. Add the eggs and cook over low heat, stirring constantly. What you are seeing is actually chopped tomato.

Liuzhou – lemony pancakes sound delicious! How thick were the pancakes?

Anna – beautiful potstickers! What were they filled with?

Huiray – your ramen and roasted duck soup looks so wonderful!

Very thin. I should have said crêpes, I suppose.

Some leftover venison from carpaccio. Cooked in a skillet with butter and then served in a cheddar grilled cheese.

Sounds like a great breakfast to me! Had me humming that great Kris Kristofferson song with the lyrics

And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad

So I had one more for dessert!

Coffee. Then tattie scones, eggs & collapsed tomatoes:

Then more coffee. No music.

Nice work with the re-purposed meat, basquecook. We don't see much (if any) beef carpaccio in Tokyo any more, since a couple of years ago when a yakiniku joint poisoned some customers with their yukke. I hope the day slows down for you later on.

Blether, great looking breakfast. I love the "collapsed tomatoes". Never heard them called that before.

Jay, Yum, home cured pork belly. I prefer side bacon over regular bacon.

Thanks, Rod. Thanks, Ann - yeah, I don't usually cook them quite that long ! Steak and eggs is a class act at any time of day, and you have me looking longingly at yours.

My husband loved French toast and would happily scarf it down for breakfast, lunch or dinner but I could never get my head around it. Far too sweet for me. So when I stumbled onto a recipe for a savoury version I jumped on it. What a disappointment! Eggs, cream, parmesan are the basics but it is flat, flat, flat despite the mustard powder, tabasco and lots of pepper. Oh well. I am happy to stick with bread fried in bacon fat when I feel a real need to clog my arteries.

That looks good ! I found that i like French Toast best when I've an open-grained bread, and I soak it long enough in the egg that it's wet through. I can then cook it hot enough to brown but stay moist in the crumb.

Nah. I think the point of French toast is to use up stale bread (pain perdu) and when you start adding stuff that isn't a pantry staple then you've missed the point. Some could argue that parmesan cheese isn't a pantry staple but it is in my house. Many thanks for the suggestion though.

Looked in the fridge this morning and saw a few sad stalks of asparagus hiding in plain sight behind the miso. So miso + butter on toast topped by sauteed asparagus and a slowly fried egg a la John Besh.

Eggs baked in tomato sauce with thyme and parmesan. An exchange of instant messages with my granddaughter about chocolate led to very overcooked eggs!
