That has two of the three things one of our guests at the Chequit Inn demanded for breakfast every morning...

Crispy bacon

Dark toast

Hard eggs

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

Dark toast!  Pale toast is my nemesis. I detest it when my toast comes and it resembles stale bread.  I do hesitate to send it back since the occasion awhile ago when I did and the kitchen sent back what we dubbed "revenge toast".  It was like a slice of charcoal!  😄

...and John would be scraping all that "dark" off "because it can cause cancer" according to him.  For him I set the toaster level at 1.

The last week or so my breakfast has been a cold strawberry Glucerna I put into a pint glass and add some local strawberries I pureed.  Great way for me to start off some warm mornings.

Moe's Breakfast.

As I have mentioned on more than one occasion, I don't care for salads.

And I'm not really much on breakfast either.

So morning is always a good time to make something that I know that Moe will like and I don't have to eat.

This morning I grilled him Italian sausage and made a salad. 
Tore apart one of my baguettes and toasted the croutons in the oven with butter and olive oil and tossed in a couple of cracked garlic cloves. 

Thanks to @David Ross, for the idea of just tearing apart the bread.  Usually I cut it into cubes.

Salad was arugula , roasted red peppers, cherry tomatoes, kalamata olives, white onion and feta cheese.

Dressing was a simple vinaigrette with olive oil, garlic,  Dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, salt, pepper and dried basil. Finished with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

Delicious and thanks.  Your photography always draws us on just how delicious the food and breads are.

You get the Good Spouse Award here. Faced with the same circumstances (I am not) I might be inclined toward a friend's approach to her husband's breakfast: "The Cheerios are on the top shelf." xD

 

Wisecracks aside, I compliment you (in no particular order) on your early-morning energy, your food sensibilities, and your food photography. :)

Thanks @Smithy.    

I had to laugh, because cereal is Moe's go to meal when I'm at work.    Even if I have left something for him, apparently pouring cereal into a bowl and adding milk is easier. 

 

Today's breakfast.

991242485_StrawberryShortcakesJune13th2019.thumb.jpg.5295062ec64e6692fb44388210019dbd.jpg

This was suppose to be dessert last night, but it was just too hot to turn the oven back on and no one was hungry for dessert anyway, so........

baked the shortcakes this morning and Moe had strawberry shortcake for breakfast.

Now that is my idea of The Breakfast of Champions!  There is never a wrong time for Strawberry Shortcake.  And bless you for not

using those nasty store bought sponge things.  They are an affront to a ripe berry!

      I've already polished off half a box of Harvest Crunch Granola today. I haven't really eaten cereal in years, but these crunchy granola clusters are hard to resist.
      What's your favourite cereal, and what do you eat with it?

      ALMOND CUSCUS WITH CRANBERRIES AND PINEAPPLE
       
      I hate getting up in the morning. My household knows that before 8 o'clock I'm unbearable, and because almost every day I wake up much earlier, I tend to be unbearable more frequently than I want. Every extra five minutes of sleep is priceless, so I appreciate a good breakfast that is not too complicated and is quick to prepare.

      Recently, I have been preparing breakfast with groats and flakes. This time I chose cuscus. This product is a cross between pasta and groats, and it doesn't need long to prepare. It is enough to add hot water or milk and leave for a few minutes. I added some fresh pineapple, cranberries and banana. I spiced it up with some hot chili pepper .

      Ingredients (for 2 people)
      125g of cuscus
      400ml of almond milk
      1 tablespoon of honey
      1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
      2 slices of fresh pineapple
      1 teaspoon of minced chili pepper
      150g of fresh cranberries
      2 tablespoons of brown sugar
      1 banana
      4 tablespoons of flaked almonds

      Wash the cranberries and put them into a pot. Add two tablespoons of water and the brown sugar. Boil, stirring gently until the cranberries burst and the sauce has thickened. Boil the almond milk with the vanilla essence. Pour the milk onto the cuscus and leave for 5-7 minutes. Slice the banana and roast the almond flakes. Peel the pineapple and dice it. Mix the pineapple, chili pepper and honey. Add the pineapple to the cuscus and mix it in. Put the mixture into two bowls. Put the cranberries and banana on the top and sprinkle with the almond flakes.

      Enjoy your meal!

      LUNCH FROM THE JAR, I.E. LAYERED SALAD IN THE OFFICE
       
      Most of us take lunch boxes to the office. Some lucky people can warm their food up at work The rest have to eat sandwiches. Sandwiches are great, but even if we absolutely love them we could get fed up with them in the end. Regardless of where we work we can save the situation with salads. Every day we can prepare a different one and we have an entirely new lunch. If we also take an attractive dish, we have something that is not only tasty but also glamorous.

      I would like to share with you the recipe for a salad which looks equally as beautiful as it is yummy. The chickpeas and groats make it a satisfying and balanced meal, after which we won't be hungry. I think that if you prepare your lunch in the morning and plan to eat it at lunchtime, we should keep the salad and the dip separately. Otherwise, after a few hours in the jar, we have an unappetising dish with squishy lettuce, which isn't what we want, is it?

      Ingredients (for 2 people)
      1 beetroot
      200g of tinned chickpeas
      100g of bulgur
      1 carrot
      1 fresh green pepper
      4 lettuce leaves
      200g of natural yoghurt
      handful of minced chives
      1 small chili pepper
      salt and pepper

      Clean the beetroot and bake or boil it. Grate the beetroot and carrot. Cut the pepper into thin strips. Boil the bulgur in salty water. Arrange in layers in a jar the beetroot, chickpeas, pepper, bulgur, carrot and lettuce. Dice the chili pepper. Mix the natural yoghurt with the chives and chili pepper. Spice it up with salt and pepper. Add the dip to the salad just before serving.

      I developed this recipe for a friend who wound up with many cans of Solo brand apricot filling and was wondering what to make with them. I adapted this recipe from Rose Levy Beranbaum's Sour Cream Coffee Cake, found on page 90 of the Cake Bible. The apricot filling works it way down through the cake and winds up near the bottom of the pan, making an attractive top later when the cake is inverted. Please use some sort of ring pan that holds at least 9 cups. You may substitute butter for the toasted almond oil, but remember that the oil adds flavor. I specifically developed this recipe with the home cook in mind, regular salted butter, and AP flour work well here. To reduce the sodium, use unsalted butter.  
       
      Ingredients
      113 grams (1 stick) salted butter
      26 grams toasted almond oil
      200 grams sugar
      6 grams vanilla extract
      4 egg yolks
      160 grams regular sour cream (do not use low fat or fat free)
      50 grams almond meal
      175 grams all-purpose flour
      2 1/2 grams baking powder
      2 1/2 grams baking soda
      12 ounces (1 can) Solo Apricot Filling
       
      12 Servings
      Preheat the oven to 350°
      Spray a 9+ cup tube or Bundt pan with non-stick spray or grease with an oil & soy lecithin blend.
       
      Lightly toast the almond meal in a frying pan on the stove top until it has a light beige color and has a mild fragrance. Allow to cool.
       
      Cream together the butter, oil, and sugar. Add the vanilla and egg yolks, mix until the mixture is even and creamy. Add the sour cream and mix well. Add the cooled almond flour and mix well.
       
      Sift together the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the liquid mixture and mix until it everything is evenly incorporated. Do not overmix the batter.
       
      Place 2/3 of the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Place the apricot filling in an even layer on top, keeping a small space between the filling and the pan's edges. Place the remaining batter on top and smooth to create a relatively even surface.
       
      Bake for approximately 50 minutes at 350° or until the top is dark brown and springs back to a light touch.
       
      Allow to cool for 15 minutes. Invert the pan onto a serving plate. Cool and serve. Be cautious about serving this hot, as the apricot filling can cause serious burns. When fully cooled, cover or wrap in plastic wrap to store. Will keep for several days in a cool, dry place.

      Omelette with courgette and tomato salsa.
       
      Today I added a bit of chili pepper to tomato-basil salsa. Because it was quite spicy I decided to add it to a mild dish. I prepared an omelette with courgette and goat cheese. The salsa added an excellent piquancy to it. I recommend this dish for a fast and light meal.

      Ingredients:
       
      omelette
      3 eggs
      150g of courgette
      3-4 slices of goat cheese
      2 tablespoons of milk
      1 tablespoon of flour
      1 tablespoon of butter
      salt and pepper
       
      salsa
      2 tomatoes
      3 tablespoons of minced basil
      quarter of an onion
      2 cloves of garlic
      half a chili pepper
      3 tablespoons of olive oil
      2 tablespoons of lemon juice
      1 teaspoon of honey
       
      Start by preparing the salsa. Cube the tomato and dice the garlic, onion and chili pepper. Mix the vegetables together. Make a sauce with the olive oil, lemon juice and honey. Add it to the vegetables and mix it in. Leave in the fridge.
      Slice the courgette very thin. Whisk the eggs with the milk and add the flour. Spice it up with salt and pepper. Melt the butter in a pan. Pour half the egg mass into it and fry for a while at medium heat. Arrange half of the courgette slices on top along with the slices of goat cheese and the rest of the courgette. Pour the rest of the egg mass onto it and fry it. When the eggs have congealed, turn the omelette upside down and fry for a few seconds. Serve at once with the tomato salsa.

      Enjoy your meal!
