Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

Recommended Posts

Cranberry pecan scones baked late yesterday.  Nothing like the heavy lumps of dough served in many commercial establishments.

Split, toasted lightly and buttered this morning. Flaky and tender.

@andiesenji - lovely scones.  Makes me hungry even after my delicious breakfast!

 

Breakfast this morning:

Hazelnut-chocolate croissant from Lidl.  This is a Germany-based grocery store - similar to Aldi.  They just started opening these stores in the Richmond area.  We went for the first time last night and were very impressed – prices, quality, selection.  The bakery is wonderful.  Tons of stuff that you can pick out as many as you like.  Aldi (just down the street) may be in trouble.

Both Lidl and Aldi are big in the UK and, while rivals, seem to manage to co-exist. The two operations are, rather than hurting each other, hurting the more traditional mainstream supermarkets. Here is an article from last week.

 My last potato became potato Rosti.  It is great fun to take a single ingredient and give it various treatments.

Earlier in the season, I made fun of the Burpee Fourth of July tomato, but they have impressed me, and I will be growing them again next year, just starting them earlier, I guess. Here are some I picked before breakfast, joined on the plate by some shishito peppers, scrapple, marinated zucchini and poached eggs.

 Greek salad, left over from dinner. Not the least bit elegant, but the catfish has no complaints.

 Flatbread from the book Bäco topped with caramelized onions, sautéed criminis and some blue cheese crumbles.  I had cooked the bread and frozen it and this was all reheated in the Cuisinart steam oven.  I do not think it worked particularly well. Next time I will try it on the re-heat function  on the Breville smart oven.

The CSO warms nicely on the (obvious) 'warm' setting, too.

 I find that its warm setting is good only for keeping already hot food at temperature. It's range is very limited for reheating something. The highest temperature offered is 300°F or 148°C.  I would normally re-heat  at 325 to 350°F   and much higher for certain things. YMMV

I've always preferred flatbreads reheated in a frying pan.

For some reason Deb came home with a loaf of Wonder Bread yesterday and proceeded to make a PBJ this am. I decided to go out to the garden and pick the first of the most recent wave of Bibb lettuce and try my hand at making a kicked up version of the BLT of my youth. We had some herbed tomatoes left over from dinner. It was a bit messy, but, oh, so worth it!

Savoury steel cut oats. Oats cooked in Instant Pot using the PIP (pot in pot) method then grated cheddar stirred in  along with some salt and pepper. Bacon, fried egg and scallions complete it.

Grabbed a couple of frozen egg bites; let them thaw a bit on the counter, then stuck them in the CSO on steam bake 350 for 8 minutes. Still cold in the center, so I cut them in two and gave them another three minutes. Then toasted a slice of oatmeal bulghur bread and topped it with some blackberry jam.

 

20170929_082437.thumb.jpg.f90f6ae0225e01970de6926757e26cd7.jpg

 

The bites were good post-freezing/thawing/warming, but a better procedure might have been to lay them out in the fridge the night before, to cut the time needed to thaw/warm. They weren't rubbery, though.

 

Also, one egg bite's enough, when I'm having it with toast. Lucy-the-pug, however, was really pleased I had warmed two.

 

Next time I'll dice the brats, instead of just slicing them.

Today's breakfast was a

toasted English muffin (extra crispy), with a drizzle of honey and chunky peanut butter.  And a glass of V-8 alongside.

Broke open the first jar of my Peach / Apricot/ Pineapple Conserve. Broke all the low-carb rules ever written, and ate it with a toasted Everything Bagel! :wub:

I had occasion to go to ALDI the other day for a Mayo Run

 

I pick up some brats and some imported dark chocolate w hazelnuts on these runs.

 

yearly

 

Breakfast :

 

BDogs.thumb.jpg.c55dbc8876ceed1552207ee6452b091b.jpg

 

for years Ive tried to limit my Industrial Salt consumption for various reasons.

 

salt at home is another matter w fresh ites

 

these brats I split in 1/2 sand soak in cold water for a few minutes :

 

night and day salt wise.   I use red onion and keep the unused portion in the refrig.   it can get very harsh

 

but a dice and a brief soak in cold water fixes that.

 

buns nuked for a few seconds for ' steamed buns '

 

and after the brats were nuked they were torched.   brown mustart

 

nice !

 

still packs a punch , but not a knock-down one

Chicken Taquitos with Sour Cream

So many great looking breakfasts. 

Robirdstx, Unlike Moe I'm not really a big fan of traditional  breakfasts, but I would love your  Chicken Taquitos.

Would be really happy too with Andiesenji's scones and Kim's croissants.

Made Steamed Chicken with ginger, garlic and green onions for Moe's breakfast yesterday morning, and I

took the same to work with me for lunch.
