Breakfast! 2016 (Part 3)

Recommended Posts

Catfish pie. Now, the only catfish in this, is the one with his fork in his hand, trying to keep the leftovers in check. Last of the leftover spinach, last of the kielbasa and onions and a few strips of brie broiled on on Tuscan toast.

 I have to ask about the allusion to catfish pie.

Well, things that have been in the fridge for more than 4 days, go invisible to Deb, or as I like to put it, get left for the catfish, which would be me. I am always trying to use up these "invisible items" and if I tell Deb that I had "catfish pie" for breakfast or lunch, she knows what I mean, but seldom asks for details.

Thank you.  It is not an expression I am familiar with so I was curious.  I might even adopt it. Catfish pie somehow sounds so much better than cream of crisper soup.

Agreed. Although Crisper Soup has a certain directness about it. If the item in question is so old that you believe it has undergone a genetic mutation you can call it Crispr Soup.  I've been calling those meals put together of invisibles "kitchen sink" meals, but I like Catfish Pie way better.

God blessed me with son who will eat anything!  Not your every day hash.  It is made with tripe and Lao Gan Ma.  Tripe was cooked in Instant Pot, posted on that thread.

I finished off my loaf of bacon-and-cheese quickbread, with a couple of pieces of bacon on the side. Thought about eggs, but couldn't be bothered.

The perfect hangover food; jianbing. 

Chinese savoury pancakes, smeared with Pixian doubanjian chilli broad bean sauce and hoi sin, spring onions, crunchy fried dough skins, a yu tiao Chinese savoury, crispy doughnut/cruller. And an egg. 

 

All rolled up and then inserted directly into your face.

bread n bacon.jpg

 

Since I just got around to downloading it, here's the pic of this morning's bacon-cheese bread and SV bacon seared off in a hot skillet. I would've scrambled eggs, but there was no room. Three pieces of bread because it was the last of the loaf. I took that one for the team.

 

As the bacon-cheese bread is gone, I tried another iteration of this Buttermilk Quick Bread ( @Anna N, I will forever be indebted to you for posting the link to that recipe!), this one with chopped roasted-and-frozen cherry tomatoes from this summer's garden. Baked it up in small foil loaf pans for potential gift-giving, if the sample taste tomorrow morning is a good one!

Stand by for report.

Cheese with baguette and espresso.  Because I can eat cheese for breakfast!  I am a grown up.

Roasted cauliflower, tossed with tomato chutney and topped with a rather unsightly poached egg.  A slice of toasted ciabatta on the side.

@Anna N  looks delish.  On similar lines we just finished a mushroom and English cheddar omelette  w/o bread only because I didn't have any decent bread at hand

This morning, I wandered along the road to the local xiao long bao shop and had my usual. Unusually, I didn't eat there. It was a bit cold and the shop only has sidewalk seating. So I asked for 打包 - dǎ bāo or "takeaway".

 

So here is breakfast as presented to me.20161219_110827.jpg

 

And plated
