No toaster since I left my parent's house..... some time ago.  Toaster ovens...of course.

 

Now, with the CSO and BSO, I toast my bread on a  steel pan on the stove.  Takes  < half the time of the CSO/BSO.

I enjoy skillet toast, as I call it, but I consider it a different animal.

But I’m curious to know what setting you use and if you are working from frozen or not.

 

@Anna N, I must confess that I don't care for frozen pizza and if truth be told, I'm not that big on leftover homemade pizza either.   BUT, the CSO reheats a slice or two of pizza quickly and it tastes almost as good as

freshly baked.   I preheat the stone for just a couple of minutes on the convection bake setting and when I slide the slice on to the stone I switch to steam bake setting for about 4 minutes.

What is this crazy thing you are calling a toaster?  Is it like those things they have in the Smithsonian?  

 

I wondered the same thing.  I don't think I have owned a toaster in probably 25 or 30 years.   I found toaster ovens better

for various slice sizes of homemade bread.

Google reports making toast in a CSO

Toast takes under a minute in our Breville toaster.    Great for time intolerant people...like us. 

I like dark toast and use the CSO. It takes around 3 minutes on “toast”. I don’t understand the directions to cook at 350F.

After a weekend's excavation I've unearthed my venerable Krups, which had been buried since I acquired my first CSO.  Memory is the Krups produced excellent toast but required too much counter space.

 

A week or so ago the Wall Street Journal affirmed the latest thing is steam toasters.  What's up with that?

Well I didn’t find the Wall Street Journal article but I did find this. $300+ for a toaster?  What’s up with that?

Lots of interesting items in the "similar products" on that Amazon page.

This one seems pretty well rounded, but the "vertical toaster oven" is just odd.

My riff on a Tortilla de sobrasada y queso Mahón (Omelet of Mallorquin sausage and Mahón cheese) from José Andrés' Made in Spain.

IMG_2100.thumb.jpeg.ba8f5cf5bf9e7dabbaf6bfddca5f9216.jpeg

I substituted 'nduja for the sobrasada as they are both very soft sausages and grated a random piece of cheese which I know was from Spain but was not Mahón.  

I wasn't confident that I could flip a cheesy omelet in my 6-inch cast iron skillet so I went with egg rings in a non-stick skillet to make little one egg versions.

Thanks for this.    I am so out of the loop that it reads like science fiction.    My toast is something that assuages hunger within 15 minutes of getting up in a normal morning.   Bruschetta, tomato toast and friends are easy snacks when we or friends want a drink sop.    But all of these and their many incarnations are something we cobble up at home.   Pay for them at restaurant multiples?   You gotta be kidding.

Saw this repost of an older recipe from Smitten Kitchen this AM and had to make it.  Kind of a salade Lyonnaise on a crusty roll.  Here's the recipe: Fried egg sandwich with bacon and blue cheese

If I'd taken a photo, it would have looked like this but messier.  

 

Delicious to be sure but I'm inclined to think the salad, topped with poached egg and crusty bread on the side would be as good, but less messy.

Went down to VA Beach to see my sister the other day.  Got breakfast on the way:

I finally got my hands on a breakfast crunchwrap.  I’ve been wanting to try this for a long time.  The Crunchwrap Supreme is my favorite thing at Taco Bell, so I was sure I’d love this.  And I would have loved it except for a distinct “taco seasoning” flavor that I found really off-putting in a breakfast item.  Looking online, I think that it might just be their “taco sauce or jalapeno sauce” that they apparently add.  It was in no way too spicy for me, just a flavor that I didn’t enjoy with breakfast.  I also missed the fried tortilla crunch that is in the Supreme.   I might try it again if I can request “no sauce”.  The eggs were fluffy, the sausage was juicy and tasty and I love the addition of hash browns.

No worries. It can’t always be about me… can it? I am glad you enjoyed it and even though it is not something I would attempt to either make or eat it still looks attractive.

      Couldn't find a topic devoted to sourdough discard cooking, so thought I would start one and see how much interest it would generate. Moderators, if there is a topic, please merge.
       
      Recently I have begun making sourdough bread and am caring for a sourdough starter. Since there is currently some difficulty finding flour (due to COVID-19 related supply chain issues, etc.) I don't want to throw out any of my sourdough starter. I am also following guidance from King Arthur Flour and Cooks Illustrated for working with a small sourdough starter (10 g. flour | 10 g. water | 10 g. sourdough starter) and using recipes that use smaller amounts of sourdough starter or only building my starter up if called for by a recipe.
       
      I have made the following recipes and would make them again:
      - King Arthur Flour sourdough discard crumpets. https://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/sourdough-crumpets-recipe
      - King Arthur Flour sourdough discard waffles. I used a mix of yogurt & milk instead of buttermilk but otherwise made the recipe as written.  https://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/classic-sourdough-waffles-or-pancakes-recipe

      After a delightful brunch at Koslow's Sqirl restaurant in Los Angeles, I've decided to attempt to cook through her cookbook. I'll post my results here.
       
      Please follow along and join in, if you're so inclined. Her food is wonderful, but I will surmise that her true deliciousness comes from using the best and freshest ingredients. I'll do my best to recreate the magic I felt at Sqirl.

      Breakfast in India vs Breakfast in our homes outside India
      My breakfasts have varied from the time I started to cook for myself instead of just enjoying my Mother’s cooking. At first they were a mix-match of meal fixings, or just dinner leftovers. Or the good old breakfast cereal and milk. But as the years passed and I was more organized, the meals I enjoyed in my Mother’s home began to swim in my memories. And I began to prepare those for my family. However, I am no amazonian chef, so depending on  the hectic nature of the days plans, I switched back and forth from convenience with taste, to elaborate and of course tasty breakfasts. We do have both vegetarian and non vegetarian foods but Indian breakfasts will mostly be vegetarian. 
      So here are some of the things I might make: 
       
      1. Poha as in mostly ‘kande pohe’.
      2. Cheela/ Pudla
      3. Masala toast
      4. Indian Omelette
      5. Handwo piece
      6. Thepla
      7. Vaghareli rotli
      8. Dhokla chutney
      9. Idli sambhar
      10. Leftover sabji
      11. Muthiya
      12. Khakhra
      13. Upma
      14. Paratha
       
      1. Kande Pohe: 
      The dish derives its name from Maharashtra where the Kande Pohe are celebrated as breakfast. They can of course like any breakfast, be eaten at any time. 
      Pohe/ Poha are steamed rice grains that have been beaten flat and then again redried. So they are like Rice flakes. Except they are hand pounded, so have a knobbly texture. 
      You get several varieties in the market. I prefer the thick white variety. 
       
      1 cup dry poha per person
      1 medium onion sliced
      1/2 jalapeno deseeded
      1 sprig curry leaves
      2 small garlic cloves
      1/4 t cumin seeds
      1/2 lemon 
      1/8 t asafoetida
      1/4 t turmeric
      small handful of cilantro leaves
      1T fresh grated coconut
      2 T Peanut oil 
      salt to taste
      sugar to taste
       
      In a pan heat some oil and add cumin seeds. When the seeds sputter, add sliced onions and stir. Saute on medium heat till they turn slightly browned here and there. Do not burn the onions. 
      Meanwhile wash the Poha in a colander and drain. Do this two or three times to get rid of any dirt and also to allow them to rehydrate. They do not need soaking. Fluff the poha with a fork. Add salt sugar turmeric asafoetida and chopped cilantro. Mix and set aside. 
      Once the onions are ready add minced garlic and chopped jalapeno along with the curry leaf sprig. 
      Turn the heat to low and add the poha mixture. Stir to coat and to allow the turmeric and asafoetida to cook. The poha will turn mildly yellow and start giving a wonderful fragrance. 
      Turn off the heat. Fluff gently and plate. Garnish with fresh grated coconut and a squeeze of lemon juice. 
      Finger licking good!! 
      Now when I make this next I will post a picture. 
      Update: Ok I felt the urge to have Kande Pohe for tonight’s dinner. So here is a picture. I am certain to enjoy it for breakfast as well. The measurement of 1 cup poha per person is too much for one meal. But carried over to another meal thats super good! I will also have some stir fried bok choy greens made in the same kadhai after the poha was done, and some cooked and sliced beetroot for salad. My family will add some haldiram sev on the poha for extra crunch! And we will all have some chaas to round off this meal. 
      *************
       
      2. Cheela/ Pudla
       
      These are essentially crepes but in the Indian style. 
      1/2 cup sieved garbanzo bean (Besan) flour. 
      Water to form a thin batter
      1T plain yogurt 
      1/2 t ginger garlic paste 
      1/4 or less green chili crushed
      2 t heated oil *
      pinch asafoetida
      pinch turmeric 
      salt to taste
      chopped cilantro (two sprigs)
      some ‘masala’ from a readymade pickle
       
       
      Method:
       
      mix the ingredients together except oil. Heat oil in a separate pan and add about 1 to 2 t of the hot oil onto the batter. It will sizzle. Use a whisk to stir thoroughly. The batter should be pouring consistency. 
      Let the batter soak for about half an hour if possible. 
      On a hot griddle, pour a ladle full of the batter. Turn the griddle with your wrist to spread the batter around. Cook on moderate to high flame. Flip the crepe when all the sides look like they are ready. You can add a little oil to the sides of the frying pan to make the edges crispy. 
       
      In my home we usually have a Besan cheela with some yogurt its a quick and filling breakfast. You can have a small salad or fruit with it to make it more complete. Or fill the center of the cheela with some cottage cheese and fold for added creaminess! 
      ****************
      3. Masala Toast : 
       
      1 slice of bread (your choice) toasted
      1/2 small red onion minced
      1 medium roma tomato diced (or whatever you have)
      cilantro (few leaves)
      1/8 t cumin (optional)
      1/4 t chaat masala ( available in stores)
      1 inch cube paneer
      1 T peanut oil
      pinch turmeric (optional)
       
      Heat the oil in a pan and saute the onions. Add the tomato and cook down to mush. Crumble the paneer and add the dry spices. Stir for a few seconds to warm the paneer. Add the cilantro and though I have not written it as an ingredient, I like a few drops of lemon juice. Do not overcook paneer.
      I started this topic because someone asked for Indian recipes on the new forum. I don’t think they have seen any yet. I hope they find this useful. I am enjoying it. 
      **************************
       
      I will add recipes to the list slowly. I have to however add that after a certain ‘age’ I have now resorted to having to make sure I have three things for breakfast besides coffee: a glass of water, a small portion of fruit and a small portion of some protein not necessarily meat.

      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.
