No spinach on hand but I did have some pre-blanched rapini so used it instead.

 It's not about the Canadian whiskey-apple bacon although it's better than most supermarket bacon. It is not about the farm fresh eggs although they were delicious.  It's not about the blistered cherry tomatoes although they were sweet and summery.  It's about the fried bread. Bread fried in bacon fat would have to make an appearance in my last meal. 

 

 

My Dad used to make us 'fried bread' in bacon fat, of course.  Nothing better on earth.

 Breakfast almost didn't happen! My purchased sourdough bread was growing an abundant forest of mould. But my freezer gave up its last two slices of frozen bread.  This is from Dianne Henry's Simple. Like @blue_dolphin (here )  I opted for sourdough over brioche and avoided the temptation to add anything other than what was in the recipe.

 Breakfast of the spectacularly spoiled.  A gift of some Iberico ham yesterday almost kept me awake all night. Could I wait til breakfast? How would I serve it?

 

 Yep.  Spectacular tomatoes would be best but we are a long, long way from tomato season. Campari cocktail tomatoes are the best I can hope for and they are not bad.   So I toasted some sourdough bread, scraped it with garlic, drizzled it with a little olive oil and then thinly anointed it with some grated Campari tomato. And to top it all off some amazing Iberico ham.  Life is good.

@Anna N

 

My heart bleeds for your sleepless night. Nothing worse. And such a miserable breakfast to follow. How do you cope?

 

Some proper banana bread and cheddar is what you need. Not that foreign muck! Send it to me and I'll dispose of it safely with all due regard for environmental issues.

Had none of the great toppings you folks are enjoying, but our friends visiting yesterday brought a loaf of freshly baked lemon loaf. It had a lovely dense texture and fresh lemony taste with a sugar crumb topping. SO good this morning (and last night after they left:$) with my coffee...

Really, liuzhou, I would be happy to comply but that would interfere with you getting that damned new place of yours in order. :P

Bacon, pumpkin and maple tart for Sunday breakfast - homemade rough puff; pumpkin, roasted till caramelised and spread over; smoked streaky bacon and glazed with maple syrup.

 

And a breakfast salad, because, you know, health.

Baked beans (Chinese Heinz clone) on toast (homemade bread), butter (New Zealand), shichimi togarishi (Japan). Black coffee (Indonesia).

 

Beary?

That did intrigue me first time I saw it. I had vague hopes of misspelled 'beery' beans, but it turned out to be a Cantonese transliteration of the Chinese brand name, 百利 which means next to nothing.

Oh well. Sounded intriguing. Thanks.

Chinese take-out leftovers.  Not at all what I had planned for breakfast. But it only needed reheating and life had got in the way of my other plan. I was able to execute my breakfast plan for lunch!

 This was an adaptation of a Diana Henry recipe which called for njuda rather than Iberico ham.  I would not have thought of pea purée as something worth eating but I almost licked the bowl (I will leave you to judge the veracity of that statement).

lovely looking" breakies" everyone.

This is a weird one but seems to fit in with other weird ones on this thread.

Coleslaw from Moosewood; Hard oiled eggs with a peach chutney on top.  Kinda weird but I didn't waste any food,.

Date and fig square. Definitely NOT my kind of breakfast  but somebody has to be responsible for quality control.

Inspired by comments on @liuzhou's (appetizing to me) repast, I decided that beans on toast were in order.

IMG_5200.thumb.jpg.115f94aa60484e8149bc27dd0070099b.jpg

Rancho Gordo Yellow Indian Woman beans smashed on to garlic-rubbed toast, topped with avocado, green onion, feta and a squeeze of lime.
