Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

Recommended Posts

Those eggs in puff pastry look delicious @David Ross!  I’m impressed – every time I’ve tried something similar to that, I’ve ended up with overcooked eggs!

 

Christmas breakfast – the obligatory Pillsbury Orange Danish tree:

Sour cream dough, filled with dried apricots and maraschino cherries.

 

My grandmother, Bebo’s, fruit salad:

Sausage rolls:

These were new to me.  I’ve always made my sausage rolls with sausage links that I’ve cooked because I was never convinced that raw sausage would cook through and I also thought raw would make the pastry too greasy.  So, I asked some questions here at eG, was assured that all would be fine and JohnT supplied me with a recipe.  They were fantastic – we all agreed that they were much better than my old ones.  So glad I have more in the freezer!

 

Smoked salmon, cream cheese and bagels:

Occasionally it is good to indulge. A fry-up with all the things I like and none of the things I don’t like.  The egg was a double yolker but one of the yolks did not survive my ineptness.

Perhaps the messiest egg sandwich ever....

This is Gail Simmon's My Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich from her cookbook, Bringing It Home: Favorite Recipes from a Life of Adventurous Eating.  The recipe is available  online here

I wasn't sure about the dill pickles and peppadews but I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed it.

If anything constitutes adventurous eating, it would be tackling that beast of a sandwich!

Give it a try some day when you're in the mood for a messy sandwich :D  If you're not into that,  it could be less messy with a more welll cooked egg.
