Breakfast! 2016 (Part 1)

Recommended Posts

Decided to go simple this morning with a sort of Mexican bruschetta. A slice of fresh Italian bread that had been generously drizzled with a good Sicilian olive oil and then topped with some freshly made fiery hot Mexican salsa. So good, I had a second.

I'm dieting again....just a couple more pounds to go.  So, my breakfast is 1/4 fresh pineapple pieces topped with 1 oz of ham.  (No need for a picture.)  Maybe a poppadum which I find keeps me feeling more satisfied seeing it is made with lentil flour.  Argh!>:(

 I finally made a loaf of Ken Forkish Saturday Bread and kept it for myself!   This morning I toasted a slice and topped it with my favourite blue cheese.

I believe cardboard would be good with that view.

I agree, kayb, but the breakfast looks mighty fine too. Fresh squeezed juice! I'm in.

Although I don't keep kosher for passover and keeps eating whatever I want, I do wait every year for the holiday's food, including matzo (which I find to be delicious :) ).

A favorite of mine is simply piece of matzo with cottage cheese and pungent chazeret (grated horseradish and sweet beetroot). It sounds a little weird, but it's delicious.

Got some man'oushe bread from a friend, topped with zaatar and olive oil, traditionally baked until well browned and slightly crisp in the edges.

I'm with you on that approach to the holiday, I put leftover charoset (chopped apple/walnut/dried apricot relish) on my morning oats

@shane 

looks tasty Shane

i just used a horseradish cream and beet purée with my baked gefilte fish at our last Seder. Flavors work nicely together.  I don't mind matzoh either.  But by day 8 the family is done

 

our harosset is a date based.  Sweet stuff.

@BeeZee Oats with charroset sounds very tasty and makes much since, given that all ingredients are common additions by themselves.

@scubadoo97 Iv'e never seen a baked gefilte fish, only boiled. 

 

Today I made matzebrei and charoset to accompaniment it.

My charroset is made with cooked tart apple and dates in almost equal proportions, some raisins and toasted walnuts, a little sweet red wine. Spiced with cinnamon, a touch of black pepper, nutmeg, salt and lemon juice. I blend it until quite smooth then add some more thinly chopped walnuts for texture.

Defiantly not the most aesthetic of preparations, but such is Ashkenazi food at it's best.

 Fried egg sandwiches.   One of the very few reasons I keep ketchup in the house.  These sandwiches can only be made with fresh bread in my opinion and this was the bread that I posted about in The Bread Topic. Despite all the challenges  the bread turned out just fine.

If there is a better way to start the day it hasn't made it into my repertoire yet.  I was given some farm fresh eggs yesterday and I swear my sleep was disturbed by my wish for morning to arrive quickly.  Gently poached eggs, toasted home-made sour cream sandwich loaf and a black coffee. Damn. Life is good.

@Anna N, your breakfast is killing me!  I've been out of eggs for a while now, pending today's local farmers' market.  I know I could run out for some grocery store eggs but I'm holding out for the best!

Definitely my kind of breakfast! Makes me wish I had some fresh eggs right now so I could have that.

Poached duck eggs, English muffin, home fries w onions and a cappuccino. The barter system is in full swing. Fresh salsa for fresh duck eggs. What's not to like?

A scaled-down, 2-egg version of this shaved asparagus frittata from Smitten Kitchen:

I didn't have prosciutto or scallions so I browned some diced pancetta and thinly sliced onions in the pan before adding the rest of the ingredients.

Local strawberries, homemade Instant Pot yogurt, homemade granola. No photo because I forgot, but it surely was good.
