Made a batch of home fries with onions, to be at the ready in the fridge for reheating as needed.

@HungryChris,  how do you reheat your home fries?  Is the texture the same after reheating as when fresh out of the pan?

Smithy,

Just high, fast heat in a fry pan to crisp them up. I actually think the texture is better that way. I got the idea from a diner I go to occasionally. In the old days you could watch the action in the kitchen from your seat, now, sadly, it's done behind the scenes.

Patrick – absolutely gorgeous biscuits!

 

We finally got out of the house and to the store this afternoon, but were still snowed in this morning.  So breakfast was the order of the day, of course.  Mr. Kim’s:

Mine:

That toast in the back is from the loaf I baked in the breadmaker yesterday:

As I thought, it made great toast!

Couple of recent breakfasts:

Taking a page from Anna N's book, poached egg yolks (I will forever be grateful to Anna for letting me know about silicone egg-poaching pods) on toast with bacon.

Thank you. Always happy to help.  Your eggs look like the perfect consistency for my taste.

@Kim Shook, those are some wonderful looking breakfasts!  @HungryChris, those home fries look wonderful.  I'd like to have some of them in my leftover collection!  And I love the poached eggs on toast that @kayb and @Anna N have posted recently.  

 

Another leftover tamale egg-stravaganza:

IMG_2460.thumb.jpg.cfae8b45b23d89b9f5b1e

Half a chicken tamale dotted with a bit of green chile adobo, herby green chile rice (from last night's dinner) and spinach, topped with a slightly overcooked poached egg.  Very satisfying!

 

Yesterday, I got back from a little over a week in Houston.  I had the same hotel kitchenette breakfast almost every day - toasted raisin bread with peanut butter and banana and a couple of prunes or apple slices and a large Starbucks coffee.  So nice to cook something up today.

@Kim Shook What hash browns do you use? They're one of my favorite foods!

They are just the Ore Ida frozen ones.  I prefer the refrigerated ones, though.  I even like them better than fresh.

Those were poached in a saucepan, put in when the water boiled, covered, turned down to simmer, three minutes, and out. 

Seemed like too much trouble to get the IP out to cook two egg yolks and a tad of white.

I'd be happy to. I used a Cook's Illustrated recipe, which you can find here. The recipe is pretty simple, and uses a fold-roll-turn method similar to a danish or croissant dough. I think there were 5 turns in all. Very rich and buttery.

 

PS - I see that you live in Anchorage, not far from my neck of the woods!

Beans on toast again:

RG alubia beans mixed with some of that lovely green chile adobo from More Mexican Everyday on toasted ciabatta, topped with cheese.  Apple slices alongside.

I am loving that green chile adobo and want to put it on everything.  I included the jar in the photo so you can see the lovely green color.

 Cannot help myself. The first thing on my mind when I woke up this morning was the fresh eggs in my fridge.   And the best way that I know of to show off farm fresh eggs is to poach them to perfection. image.thumb.jpeg.9f334c4ff56aec1a5832f29 This time I put them on a toasted English muffin and dusted them with Japanese spice.

Bought a little too much fresh flounder for dinner last night and decided to broil up the last of it while still fresh. An unusual breakfast for me, but good, nonetheless. Had it with an egg, pickled zucchini ribbons and a compari tomato.

I should have just put this nice poached egg on toast or an English muffin as @Anna N did but I wanted to try one of the rosemary rolls I bought at TJ's yesterday.

Bacon, egg and Swiss on a rosemary parmesan roll.  

IMG_2473.thumb.jpg.8c4702ba0cac666d33fd5

 

I'm not sure how I thought I was going to eat this soft, runny egg on a very crusty roll as a sandwich, but be assured that it was all consumed and delicious.

Inspired by Ann_T's lovely photo above, I made soft boiled eggs for breakfast this morning.  I just wish I had Ann's bread to go with them  instead of the standard supermarket variety!

Moe is one lucky guy! But I suspect he realizes that.  :)

 

Edited to add: Does Moe like to cook, also? I get the sense that you are the cook/baker/breadmaker etc but maybe Moe has his specialty, also. Not saying that he has to be a cook, of course. I know he does woodwork, etc.
