Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

Recommended Posts

I have had the poached egg cling even to a non-stick pan quite a few times, so I put in a little olive oil before the water and vinegar this morning.

breakfast at the cafe at the little  airpark  here.   a sausage and hashbrown(they call them potato pancakes) already missing. 

..    love that they will get you some sriracha if you ask.   pretty sure the bread and definitely the potato pancakes and regular pancakes are scratch/housemade.

You're gonna have to cut it up to eat it, anyway, is the way I look at it.

Looks like I'm joining @Anna N on the poached egg bench of disgrace.

 

A couple of days ago, I came up with this tragedy. Everything was going well until I was momentarily distracted and overcooked the egg. I haven't done that since Oliver Cromwell was a boy.

 

The asparagus and toast was OK.

One cannot in all good conscience hit the "like" button for an over cooked egg.

I had extra beans and sausage from Sunday's Merguez with Beans, Eggs & Feta from Diana Henry's Simple so they got reheated with a fresh egg.

I nailed the egg but forgot to add the feta.  Still good.

 It had to be if only to prove that I could poach two eggs without breaking one yolk.

Most of the time, most of us think we do. If not as kings then as queens and all the in betweens.

Thank you. The plate, along with others, was given to me by my in-laws six years ago. They had belonged to my husband's paternal grandparents.

Yes, I know I didn't actually cook it, but how good is Sydney as a city when even your bog-standard local suburban shopping centre food court has a Din Tai Fung, where a girl can get herself made-to-order crab roe xiao long bao, pork jiaoze in chili oil, Shanghainese siu mai with sticky rice, a crunchy deep fried chicken chop, and a big glass of fresh, warm soy milk...and finish it all by her hungry, hungover self?

I did not cook today's breakfast either.  

Breakfast sandwiches.  Scrapple for me and sausage for my husband.  Cream cheese stuffed jalapeño poppers to share.  Don't judge me scrapple haters ;).   Chesapeake grill in North Beach MD does scrapple right: crispy on the outside and soft inside.

And we had company.

Din Tai Fung sounds like a perfect place for Dim Sum:)

Grilled Italian sausages with new potatoes steam roasted and finished by pan sautéing in bacon fat.  DH must have Stadium Mustard, he mail orders it from Cleveland.

I had black forest ham and Swiss cheese with horseradish mustard on garlic naan (not homemade). Still not particularly adventurous but outside of my usual breakfast fare.

It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.
