Breakfast! 2016 (Part 3)

Recommended Posts

Instant Pot polenta, roasted delicata squash, balsamic-marinated fresh and dried figs with a little crumbled bacon and blue cheese.

I'm pretty sure I didn't need both the bacon and blue cheese but I couldn't decide.

 Of course you need both bacon and blue cheese. It's sort of like amino acids -- you need a variety to get all the ones your body craves. I'm extremely jealous today because I didn't get anything for breakfast except a slice of bread and butter. I had to make up lost time using up fresh produce so I dug right in making soups.

I think so. Very lightly spiced. No sage. Restrained.

When I go to Germany my first act is usually to get a plate of mashed potatoes and weisswurst.

 

Over here I like a sagey slightly spicy breakfast sausage patty (never links).

 The habits of a lifetime die hard.   As I contemplated breakfast this morning it occurred to me that one could have a very leisurely breakfast on a Sunday morning. And so I decided that I would have "shakshuka" (in quotes so I can get away with using scallions and cotija cheese). I was a little too enthusiastic with the Harissa  but otherwise it was very tasty.   After I was finished I did the proverbial head slap. I don't work. I live alone. I have few obligations. Every day is Sunday.

First real breakfast I've cooked in ages on Saturday: bacon, scrambled eggs, toast from an oatmeal loaf I baked Friday, and pear preserves.

Baked blueberry muffins this morning. No photos, because I forgot.

 

Back to yogurt tomorrow, as I made a batch today.

BLT on toasted sourdough

The tomato looks sort of anemic in the photo but it's a big yellow pineapple heirloom tomato from the famers market. Very juicy and flavorful.

YUM!

 

Cinnamon toast sans cinnamon (just butter and sugar), made from oatmeal/whole wheat/flaxseed bread.

A failed attempt at a soft-boiled Japanese egg (onsen tamago) but damn the hen worked hard to lay it, her owner had to collect it and there was a chain of people involved in getting it to me.  So I chopped it up, added a little dashi shoyu  spread it on some toast, sprinkled it with some shichimi togarashi and made breakfast.

Yesterday, I was given some fresh duck eggs, which I celebrated at breakfast this morning. Poached duck eggs, home fries, toast and fresh salsa.

Chawanmushi made in the Instant Pot.   This is an 8 ounce ramekin and it could have used another couple of minutes to set up properly.

I have @FrogPrincesse to thank for my breakfast this morning. In the Salad topic she mentioned Azak eggs (eggs poached in plastic wrap) and I knew that was my answer for my eggs  which were getting just a bit long in the tooth.
