Breakfast! 2016 (Part 1)

Recommended Posts

This was suppose to be last night's dinner.  But I never got around to roasting the chicken.

 

So, I roasted it this morning and we had a late breakfast or early brunch depending on how you look at it.

Ann - LOVE open faced with gravy sandwiches!  They are the top reason that I bother to roast chicken or beef!

 

Oops!  Posted lunch here instead of breakfast - editing to correct!

Mr. Kim’s breakfast last Saturday:

DSCN1333.JPG.022888ecd8e4b7d35eb1ab0f7e4

Cheese and jalapeno omelet.  I went straight bacon. 

 

Breakfast on Sunday started with fruit:

And then what I woke up thinking about:

DSCN1375.JPG.250184607f9aeb12fffa69b1ce2

Sausage biscuits with sausage gravy and scrambled eggs.  Except the biscuits were those Sister Schubert yeast rolls because they were already thawed in the fridge.

Sick today and working from home, so I made pure carb coma comfort food; ddeokbokki. Chewy, sticky Korean rice cakes simmered with sliced fish cakes in LIQUID FIRE (which is to say gochujang chilli paste, gochugaru chilli flakes, sugar, garlic, soy sauce and sour green plum syrup until thickened). And lots of green onion and roasted sesame seeds.

 

SO hot that I've temporarily stopped being light in the head from sickness, and am now light in the head from gochujang buuuuuuuuurn.

I would eat breakfast everyday if I could have this  ^^^

If it's not too much trouble, would you link a recipe or give more info on how you made this gorgeous bowl of fire? PS I am also jonesing for your assorted seafood breakfast that made an appearance up-thread.

Inspired by a recipe on The Kitchn.  Blistered tomatoes with capers, garlic, olive oil and a dusting of parmesan on toasted multigrain sourdough (store bought).

Of course..thank you for your kind words! I don't really follow a recipe for ddeokbokki, so my vague approximations are:

 

Soak rice cakes in warm water for half an hour to thaw (they usually come frozen and I use about 500g/1 pound of them at a time, but if you get them in refrigerated or room temperature packs, I'd still soak them for 5 mins or so in warm water to loosen them up a bit) and then drain them. They should be a little pliable but not mushy.

 

In a pan, heat a bit of oil and tip in the rice cakes. I like to leave them undisturbed for a minute or so to let them develop a bit of a caramelly crust, but that's quite unorthodox. Stir them around with some lengths of green onion (the white parts) for about 2 minutes. Then tip in about 3 Tbsp or so of gochujang chilli paste, some extra chilli flakes if you like them, and a few tsp of sugar. Let that fry for a minute or so, and then add some slices of fish cake or sausage or whatever protein you have (optional), pour in a cup and a half of water and simmer until the sauce thickens, the rices cakes swell and it becomes unctuous. That's it. Garnish with chopped green onion ends. Sometimes I stir blanched ramen in. Sometimes I add cheese. I'm a devil that way. ;)

Here's a good link, though I never bother with the anchovy/kelp stock part, and I'd never use that much water: http://www.maangchi.com/recipe/ddukbokkie

Went to the Sydney Fish Markets this morning and while what I REALLY wanted to eat (on the spot) was one of these beautiful fresh sea urchin:

 

sat3.thumb.jpg.960b625af6d309b182ae3e5bd

 

Decorum prevailed and I just bought some (comparatively boring) Tasmanian gravlax. And at the greengrocer on the way home, some native Australian finger limes; these are so intensely sour, and the little 'caviar' pop in your mouth and explode in citrus on your tongue.

 

sat1.jpg.0408ba0d4f3f80b40306b630b1e9490

 

So, sourdough, butter, gravlax and finger lime for breakfast.

Thank you,  @rarerollingobject

 

I made a special trip to the Asian market today and found the frozen Korean rice cakes & some Korean "fish tofu" & coincidentally ran into a friend who is Korean (serendipity smiled on me today) and I showed her a photo of your dish. She helped me select the ingredients for the sauce. So tomorrow morning, I'm excited to try this dish. (I also picked up way too many bags of Korean ramen, but that's for another thread :smile:)

Where on earth do you live?  I'm not normally a breakfast person but your selections are changing my point of view. Very good looking eats going on here @rarerollingobject!

 

ETA: on your profile, it says that you hail from Sydney, Australia.  I just added that destination to my bucket list.  :D

Ooh, lovely! Please post back with how it turns out! It's a very forgiving dish, hard to get wrong. You can jazz it up with garlic and soy sauce etc, but you really don't have to..as long as you have gochujang, you're good to go. Btw, you can also use the gochujang and ramen for one of my other favourite Korean dishes, dak galbi - posted it in the Dinner thread. Good with chicken or pork, or fish cakes!

Not as pretty as the dish posted by @rarerollingobject but very tasty!  Next time I will add more hot sauce, but since my family was sharing, I played it on the safe side today. I added green onions as suggested as well as chopped "fish tofu"  (whatever that is) and some spicy pickled radish that was hanging out in the refrigerator.  Served with a side dish of sautéed bean sprouts in toasted sesame oil.  Definitely will make this dish again. Thanks for the recipe and cooking instructions  :D

I came over all English today and had a simple breakfast of toast and marmalade.

Only because, to my surprise, I found this little pot of real English marmalade in a local store in deepest China.

I suppose I should have had a cup of tea with that, but I stuck to my strong, black coffee.

Poached eggs, Italian toast, scrapple and fresh salsa. Scrapple is one of those items that only goes in the grocery cart when I shop alone and only appears on the menu when I cook for myself. I suspect that I am not alone in this "scrapple purgatory". I believe that, given the opportunity, Deb would replace my feelings of persecution with shame.

 Perhaps the saddest breakfast ever. McD's chicken McNuggets with hot mustard dipping sauce.  But sometimes circumstance trumps choice.  These were purchased yesterday after a day from hell and stashed in the refrigerator overnight in the sure and certain knowledge that today would not be much better than yesterday:(.  On the bright side hunger will not be an issue for some hours although indigestion might!

Also I had to wiki what the heck scrapple was, but it looks tasty! Is it the kind of thing that comes in big blocks from the store and you slice as you go, or pre sliced slices, or do you make your own or what? 

 

(leaving the wiki link here in case anyone else wants: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrapple)

 

It looks like a cultural cousin of haggis / Lorne sausage / white pudding. What's the texture like?

Tere.

I buy it in 1 lb bricks (about the size of 1 lb of butter). It is about the same consistency as cold butter as well. I slice it into saltine like slices and fry it in a pan. You have to wait for it to crisp up before you can flip it without difficulty, then crisp it up on the other side. It is just one of those things (like beef tongue) that I was taught to cook at a very young age and it is a bit of nostalgia to me that I think tastes great. Others just can't get past the ingredients.

@Tere, you may also find these topics about scrapple enlightening:  Scrapple and its culinary cousins and scrapple: wherein i sacrifice my health (to find the best scrapple).

Some kale and white bean soup excavated from the freezer (finally seeing a hint of organization returning to that space after a period of chaos) with a poached egg:
