Crisper drawer breakfast quesadilla.  Broccoli, mushroom, onion, bell pepper, roasted corn with scrambled egg and a mix of cotija and dry jack cheeses.

After a week of eating nothing but European food in Paris, and being too busy to cook at all last week with starting a new job etc, I have been close to tears with cravings for food from the motherland, which is to me...Hong Kong Cantonese.

 

So this morning for Sunday breakfast I made wonton noodles; egg noodles, blanched in chicken stock, with wilted greens, prawn and pork wontons, a little chunk of pork belly I char siu'd with maltose and soy sauce and garlic and a square of fermented tofu (it's the traditional recipe), slices of steamed lup cheong, and lots of oyster sauce, dark sweet soy and white pepper. And crispy chilli sauce and ginger oil.

 

And lo, I was happy.

This is most unlike me. I was in a local store yesterday and noticed that they were selling this German muesli on special offer. Normally around 65 pictures of Chairman Mao per kg, it was going for only 45.

 

On a whim, I bought a bag.

I even remembered to buy some cow juice. I haven't eaten muesli in aeons, but thoroughly enjoyed it this morning.

 Partly inspired by an ingredient.   I had an early morning grocery delivery and among the items were some white potatoes that looked incredibly fresh and I could not resist slicing one on my mandoline and frying it in duck fat.  The sausages are labelled as English bangers (perhaps they were stuffed by an Englishman?).  But it was a satisfactory breakfast complete with a little puddle of HP sauce.

Steamed Moe "soft boiled" eggs for breakfast and steamed one, two minutes longer for me.

Wanted mine in-between soft and hard.

The eggs were local farm fresh eggs. 
Even this semi-soft steamed was easy to peel

2nd breakfast.  Ricotta, dark chocolate and dried cherry quesadillas:

Choco quesadillas.jpg

Topped with powdered sugar, red bell pepper and ancho chile jam, fleur de sel caramel sauce and naked.  I liked the plain naked or powdered sugar versions best.  The caramel sauce was also pretty good.  I think the jam would have been better inside the quesadillas, maybe instead of the cherries.

Served on the patio, with a third cup of coffee, after the sun finally decided to show up on this May gray day.

Toasted English muffin with ricotta and homemade jam.  Nothing new here EXCEPT I felt I had to try commercial ricotta to see if I might be missing something.  Glad I did.  Much prefer my own.

An early morning appointment that might last many hours dictated a substantial breakfast. A steak and Gruyere melt on a toasted English muffin (stacked to hide the partially eaten one)!

 BLT, my absolute favourite sandwich and I see you used lots of crispy bacon and mayo! :x

Best thing for breakfast on freezing cold, rainy mornings; the zong zi sticky rice dumplings I made ages ago and froze; glutinous rice, stuffed with a chunk of soy-sauce red braised pork belly, mung beans, chestnuts and a whole salted duck egg yolk, wrapped in bamboo leaves and then steamed and cut open and doused with chilli sauce.

 

And then I was still hungry, so second breakfast, aka treasures from the freezer continued; Balmain bug tail meat, brushed in white soy and honey and lightly flame torched. On sushi rice, wrapped in Korean seasoned seaweed, and down the hatch.

Pork and prawn siu mai. I never bother trimming the square wonton wrappers into rounds, which would be what you'd do to make them look the more traditional siu mai barrel shape. MOAR CARBS.
