Breakfast! 2015

Recommended Posts

Breakfast this morning:

med_gallery_3331_117_156913.jpg

Sausage and fried eggs on toast.  The little blue bowl contains some fig syrup from making candied figs.  Delicious with the sausage.  The sausage is Jimmy Dean’s Fully Cooked refrigerated breakfast sausage.  It won a taste test on Cook’s Illustrated awhile back and I have to agree that it is better than any national brand I’ve ever tasted.  I heat it up in a pan to get a bit of a crust, but I prefer it to all the raw stuff I’ve bought.   Nice surprise to find out that something convenient is also good!

Nothing wrong with your egg, hummingbirdkiss, I always thought that eggs should have a crispy frill.

""  a crispy frill ""

 

​these are the most difficult fried eggs to make

 

you baste them in the very hot oil and get that crispiness  

 

best ever  still with a runny yolk.

thanks! 

 

I worked at a truck stop when I was in college that is where I  learned oh so very much in this world ..but most of all how to make eggs 3 ways ..chopped scrambled ….you guys know what I mean they are horrifying to many ..but loved by many as well they are chopped and scrambled chopped and scrambled usually with bacon grease and I love them with toast always overcooked…second way was over-well-done ..not over easy never over easy if they wanted the egg flipped it was cooked to death …and sunny side up ..that is the egg I made with crispy frills!

yes I baste with the whites with whatever  grease is in the pan a few times to get the bubbles and crisp  around the edges ..I like the yolk really raw however so I try to not baste it at all 

 

 

husband had a double yolk duck egg on his enchilada he cooked his own

 

 

eggs really are perfect food

hummingbirdkiss, the green smoothie is a good choice to fuel your work day but I was sure you'd be having jook with an egg on it for breakfast!  I know others have mentioned this but please do think about starting a thread to share your kitchen remodel.  I've really enjoyed it when others have done the same.  

 

I had an early AM dentist appointment, followed by errands that included a stop at Trader Joe's  where I picked up a box of frozen pumpkin waffles.  

I tarted one of them up à la rotuts for a late morning breakfast treat:

Pumpkin waffle topped with goat cheese, fig butter (warmed and thinned with a few drops of rum) and walnuts.  All from TJ's.  Plus coffee and some grapes.

I want to show but it is still  such a mess! it is a tiny galley kitchen with 70's oak cabinets (they are mostly off in line to be primed and painted in shifts  and while it is small it is really a functional shape I like to cook in … what can I show yet ..my friends want me to show them too but what ?  the tiles ripped off the walls looks pretty gross right now there is nothing but a huge mess and a lot of hope!  

 

I will try to make myself find something cool to share about this disaster ..my solar tube/light combo looks like a crappy canned light when I take a photo so that is not very cool yet 

 

I really want a waffle now!!!

Coffee (out of frame), and this:

 

attachicon.gifAndreakage 2015-09-25_08.26.16.png

 

That's an 'Andreakage'. I couldn't recall seeing one of these before, although I must have done, at some point: the 'Kajkage' is a longstanding tradition (and not just in Denmark, although here, they represent Kaj and Andrea, characters from a popular chidren's programme). Anyway, the mild novelty of it meant I definitely needed to eat this thing, after which I left the bake shop slightly lightheaded, and happy-queasy :smile:

Even the picture makes me feel slightly lightheaded. I'd have had to eat one too, and stagger out with you. :smile: What was the interior like, and how did it all taste?

An avocado, ham and tomato sandwich.  Quite good except the tomatoes needed some salt.  I thought the ham would be salty enough.  Love avocados.

Welcome to eGullet, simon ben. What do you do with the olive oil? What seasonings, if any, do you include?

I just add some cummin and salt to the eggs when they're ready, then I simply pour a little bit of the olive oil on them.

 

Next time I'll remember to take a photo before eating it all.  :laugh:  :laugh:

You've compelled me to google bulla. I may have to try this.

Beans on toast:

beansontoast.jpg

 

Toasted whole grain bread, smashed Rancho Gordo cranberry beans topped with Trader Joe's roasted red pepper and artichoke tapenade.  A little peccorino romano to go with.  Beans were cooked with garlic, bay leaf and de arbor chiles so they are tasty.

this may look like poorly made cinnamon toast. 

is Korean milk bread  and the "toast is a bit stale  and dried out with the pieces together so the butter melts in the middle and it is dry grilled.…because that is how I roll …I used my friends butter from Port Orchard… fresh ground cinnamon and vanilla sugar 

 

so really while my struggle is real..and trust me ..right now ..the struggle is wearing on my last nerve ..and the pig ..it is REAL ……and I just had to hire a pig sitter to come stay with him so we can both leave the house for more a few hours and not destroy the neighbors treasured gardens …

 

so my toast is being posted…it is tasty and so is the coffee ..Ethiopia Guji Zone Akrabi …roasted deep and dark Olympia Washington style …the roaster keeps shorting out what is left of the kitchen power supply ..we will have lots of outlets and switches but I have not seen a counter yet??????

 

not bitching 

 

 

so toast coffee and hopefully others are eating better today :) I will eat eggs later. once the world settles and I make a path

 

 

and oh my freaking goodness it is so real today I am posting toast on EG

Nothing wrong with cinnamon toast and coffee, hummingbirdkiss! When we were little, my younger brother used to request "sparkly, buttery, cinnamon-y toast" for his breakfast. The sparkly part meant he wanted lots of butter, but all melted, no bits of cold yellow butter remaining. Sounds like your method has that covered.

I had a slightly overcooked poached egg in a nest of Zuni Cafe cookbook boiled kale, some roasted sweet potatoes and a little toast on the side:

Wow! Some amazing images here - I particularly like your breakfast flatbread blue_dolphin.

 

A bit of a naughty breakfast for me this morning. Perhaps unspectacular to many, but American hash browns are a recent discovery for our family, a world apart from their triangular, mushy potato cousins of the same name in the UK. 

 

Since our return from the US last Christmas I have been on a mission to find the best method of cooking these and have found that the trick appears to be to wash the grated potato then squeeze the bejeebers out of them using a clean tea-towel until they're completely dry. Fried in a bit of rapeseed oil with a good sprinkling of salt and I'm getting close to my idea of perfection. They're not quite as golden as I would like but I think my aversion to cooking cooking oil might be to blame...any tips always welcome :-)

very nice on those HashB's

 

I think you've got it right w the grating and removing the water.

 

just leave then in the pan a bit longer.

 

BTW   I have visited GB several times, and stayed in various B&B's

 

loved it all

 

however, I don't see that Bacon I used to love  :  the rasher w the Canadian Loin like bit attached

 

sad not to see it

 

now that we know 'processed Meats' are going to kill us  .....

 

those studies do not mention the Smiles on our Faces when we enjoy the Rashers and the Sausage.

 

bangers I love, but can't get here

 

thanks for your posts.

Phill Bernier,

 

Some folks make hashbrowns by parboiling and cooling the potatoes before grating them. I like them this way. It gives a fluffier, crisper result like the double fry method for French fries. If you haven't already tried that and decided you like your method better, I would give it a shot.
