Oh, we rather proudly use that descriptor for all sorts of slightly on the redneck/Middle America style foods. Particularly those made with prepared ingredients -- most anything with Jello or cream of --- soup, for example. Canned crescent rolls from the dairy case qualify!

 

I will note they didn't last long this morning.

 Woke this morning ravenously hungry. Scrambled eggs, prosciutto, a shower of Parmesan and some toast. Now I think I will go back to sleep for a couple of hours. :D

Robirdstx, I would be very happy with a slice of your Quiche for breakfast.

 

Moe's breakfast.

Giant Lima beans cooked in the Breville PC and then seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, rosemary, basil, tomatoes and simmered in a little chicken broth served 

with grilled Italian sausage.

The prosciutto panino and marinated mushrooms with pickled onions makes toasties with a flavor combination pretty hard to beat, but the crispy scrapple and fresh salsa makes one hell of a run at it.

Pretty hearty breakfast. Sadly, I've only had scrapple a few times during very rare trips to the Northeast. I'd go a little out of the way for it. Not a thousand miles though. :D

HC's taste for scrapple in the morning ("Smells like...victory...") has brought equally enthusiastic supporters and detractors out of the woodwork in the past. 

 

I haven't had the pleasure myself, scrapple not being readily available in Atlantic Canada, but I'm partial to fried slices of leftover haggis so I suspect I'd enjoy it. :P

Yesterday's breakfast.

Up early so I put a 6 lb bone in ham in the oven.

Used the Breville PC to make my potato gratin. Finished it off under the broiler to brown.

 Very interesting. I looked up a couple of recipes and I’m tempted to give it a try as soon as I find something suitable potatoes.

Anna, I only use Russet potatoes.  It is my preferred potato for the gratin, mashed, fried, roasted, baked, etc.....

Soaked the beans over night.   Used the ham bone and cooked the soup in the Breville PC.

I’m not usually a weekday breakfast person, but I woke up hungry this morning:

Disappointed with that green ring on my yolk!  I steamed these like I always do – never gotten green yolks with that method before. :(

Pan-toasted ciabatta with lightly sauteed mortadella.  The latter at the suggestion of @rotuts

Crispy scrapple with fresh salsa and tomato bruschetta with a few wisps of prosciutto di Parma, thanks to a recent visit to whole paycheck.

Breakfast this morning is sliced fruitcake, toasted and lightly buttered, as suggested by the maker.

Maybe it doesn't look like much but it's quite filling and it tasted wonderful.

I thought I recognized that tin! I have the same one, given to me by a neighbor over ten years ago. When I received it, it was filled with my neighbor’s homemade brownies, as a Christmas gift. I have used it to hold the paper filters for my coffee maker ever since.

@lindag - that tin brings back memories for me, too.  I had a Uncle who sent one of these to us for Christmas every year so I have a collection of those tins out in the garage somewhere!

 

Today's breakfast - scrambled eggs with some leftover green bean mushroom tart on the side.

IMG_6307.thumb.jpg.732521744e33a451e95ce09b9bbd1ca7.jpg

Over in the Thanksgiving Sides topic, @Shelby mentioned this Green Bean Mushroom Tart with Blue Cheese and Crispy Shallots.  I made a half-sized tester yesterday.  The crispy shallots got a bit too brown during the re-heat but otherwise, very nice!

The Collins St Bakery did themselves some great PR with those tins. I have them in two sizes. I've never been in Texas and no one from Texas has ever sent me a fruitcake. I use mine all the time. I think I must have picked them up at a flea market or Goodwill a million years ago; mine are not shiny and don't say "deluxe." You can order the fruitcake from Amazon and the tin come with. The entire country must be lousy with 'em.
