These are lovely pictures, but this morning I had a large artisanal marshmallow, toasted in the oven, and served in bed. With espresso.

I need to stand up for my peeps. Those of us who don't "cook" for breakfast. Much.


I like to bake nice things. And then I eat them. Then I can bake some more.

robirdstx – I have become addicted to English muffins lately – sometimes with eggs and sometimes just with about a half a stick of butter :blush: !

 

Ann – beautiful sausage gravy!  It looks absolutely fantastic, as do your biscuits.  And I agree with Ashen – that breakfast is perfect.  The toast is a thing of beauty.

 

gfweb – those potstickers are lovely.  I love how thin the skins are.

 

Mr. Kim’s breakfast yesterday morning:

Salami & Cheddar omelet.  I had a slice of a local bakery’s fantastic pecan ring that I only buy when we have company because I will eat one in a day :unsure: .

Quiche for one: one egg, 1/4 cup half and half, grated cheese, chopped leftover roasted asparagus, baked in a ramekin. I don't use crusts on my quiche.

Sometimes simple is all I need. Really good prosciutto (a gift) on toasted cheese bread.

Anna, tell me about the eggs.  I've never heard of this before.  What is the taste difference between the oven and just making hard boiled eggs on the stove top?  I see they look a little browned.

This

was my inspiration. They are quite palatable and further extend the amazing adaptability of eggs.

Sunday brunch:

13037975853_657c5a1b75_z.jpg

Beets, citrus, walnuts

The beets were roasted Saturday evening, then macerated with fennel fronds, Meyer lemon juice, crushed fennel seed and sea salt overnight. This mixture was then combined with chopped clementine orange, walnuts and scallion, and dressed with a Meyer lemon vinaigrette (1 teaspoon clementine juice, 3 tablespoons Meyer lemon juice, 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt and black pepper to taste.)


13037829525_264198dea8_z.jpg

Scrambled eggs (2 eggs, sea salt, black pepper, 2 tablespoons milk) with champignon mushrooms (chopped champignon mushrooms (otherwise known as white button mushrooms, the kind you get in your supermarket), sautéed in olive oil, with chopped shallots, slivered scallion, sea salt and black pepper) and green mango pickle.

Early breakfast:

 

Finely sliced shallots sautéed w/ olive oil, a half-dozen cloves of garlic (very lightly crushed, de-skinned) tossed in, then finely chopped green cabbage (lots) plus a couple spoonfuls of rendered chicken fat/schmaltz.  After stirring around on high heat a good splash of chicken broth added, the mixture stirred/tossed and left to cook a minute or so.  Blended w/ leftover ground chuck–tomatoes–onion–celery sauce (from here), a stick of cinnamon (broken into two) pushed into the mix and everything covered and simmered for a short while.  Left for a few hours then reheated & served with and over fresh radiatore [Nicole-Taylor's], garnished w/ chopped parsley.

Country gravy is a white sauce with a good deal of pepper and perhaps sausage. You might use sausage grease to make the roux. You would be crazy not to.

Charcuterie + Cheese + bread = Best possible breakfast

 

Although a nice breakfast sausage + eggs + fried potatoes = Best possible breakfast too

 

And a egg/sausage/cheese/ketchup/pepper sandwich on a hoagie roll also = best possible breakfast.

 

Likewise corned beef hash, crisped and tossed with a well-peppered ketchup = best possible breakfast

 

This is a problem for logicians, but not for me. There are four best possible breakfasts
