Breakfast! 2017 (Part 1)

499 posts in this topic

For today's breakfast, had some leftover rice so I made the Crispy Ginger Rice with Leeks, Shiitakes and a Fried Egg from Deep Run Roots once again.  This time I threw in a small amount of leftover Gingered Collards that had been sitting in the fridge. This is a great leftover-using recipe!

 The very thing I did not want for dinner last evening was exactly what I wanted for breakfast this morning.   I live alone. I suspect that is the state I should maintain.

 For me the biggest challenge is to make sure that I cover as much of the bread as possible. Failure to do so means I end up with charcoal crusts.  I find that it's much easier to avoid the char if I use cheese slices rather than using crumbled cheese (which is all I had today).

this has worked for me :

 

I first lightly toast the bread.  say a medium

 

I cover the bread w tomatoes , including the crust  ( or as much as I can )  then put slices of melting cheese on top of the

 

tomatoes and broil.   HomeAgeds  brie form TJ's   ( the slices that 'ooze out ' a bit ) work well

 

but any chess that melts does fine

Green eggs and ham frittata in the oven.  

Sauteed potatoes, 3 eggs with 2 tsp of pesto mixed in then scattered with diced ham.  Set the bottom then into a 350 F oven for about 10 minutes.       DING!

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

 When something appears on your plate three times in three days there is a strong indication that one ought to place a grocery order.

I've had the same breakfast for 3 days in a row - leftover grits in some fashion.  Today, the last of the grits & collard greens, topped with some sausage ragout.  All from Deep Run Roots.

 I finally placed a grocery order which will be delivered tomorrow. This was my cue to go through my refrigerator  and see what needed to be used up/tossed out/repurposed.   Breakfast took care of a few of the weary vegetables. There is still much work to be done.

@robirdstx   Made similar eggs this morning with a side of sauted sliced brown mushrooms cooked enough to dry and brown them.

You know, I've never made this.  My mom used to make it for us kids from time to time.  Always when my dad was out as he had developed a WWII US army aversion to the dish.  I liked it.  Crisp toast, salty meat, creamy gravy.  What's not to like? Except sometimes there were canned peas in the gravy :o No can do canned peas. No can do.

My Mom often made Creamed Beef on Toast for us, it was my absolute favorite breakfast.  My dh wouldn't eat this stuff either as he developed a distaste for it after his time in the army.

My choice these days is to buy it frozen, made by Stouffers. 

Now that I think about it, I remember I have a package in my big freezer....I haven't had breakfast yet so I'll be having creamed beef on toast!

 I was following a recipe that called for taking apart some link sausages, re-seasoning them and forming them into a patty.  This recipe also called for some arugula which I carefully added to my grocery order.  Said order was delivered this morning.  No arugula just a large bunch of cilantro which I hate.  The refund was welcome but the arugula would've been better.  I am certain that @rotuts will  notice that the cheese has melted.

I fell down multiple rabbit holes yesterday reading all of our Recipes that Rock topics.   So many recipes that I always meant to try!

 

Although I jumped on the roasted cauliflower bandwagon very early, I strongly resisted the idea of roasted broccoli.  That was foolish. This is Ina Garten's rendition with garlic (which I forgot), parmesan, pine nuts, and lemon zest and juice.

These should be criminalized.  I explained elsewhere how I fell down the rabbit hole of previous topics featuring Recipes that Rock.  I ran across a recipe for flaky cheese biscuits from Fine Cooking.  I decided to make 1/2 of the recipe.  I used a mix of cheeses (cheddar, gruyere, parmesan, grano padano)  and chose to make three biscuits by cutting the dough with a knife rather than a cookie cutter.  My plan was to make a breakfast sandwich.  Putting anything else on these biscuits would move them from a misdemeanor to a felony.
