Last trip to supermarket I took a peek at the cheese case and spotted a small cut of baked lemon ricotta...I've been wanting to try it but couldn't justify a purchase of a large chonk since I'm the only one eating it, and it wasn't cheap. Had some on a Lundberg rice cake (wanted a plain/neutral base) with a drizzle of honey. I think it would be tasty on oat cake type crackers, or I had contemplated using a graham cracker as a vehicle. Glad I finally got to try it, I found it pleasant but not likely to repeat at that price.

@robirdstx -- Thanks for the link to the chorizo recipe. I have some ground pork in the freezer I think may be fatty enough for this.

 

 

 

Oops, sorry, @blue_dolphin.  I think I credited the wrong poster.

Today's breakfast was the chorizo & egg tacos that I set out to make yesterday but turned into quesadillas instead.


I was not hungry this morning, but I made the quesadilla-style for my hubby, minus the avocado. He chose the salsa verde and sour cream. He liked it!

Also, I just added frozen hash browns to my shopping list.  Every time I see you’ve used them like that, I want it. 

ME TOO.  Every time she posts a picture of those I want one.  I have looked several times at the smaller grocery store for those hash brown patties, but never could find them.  But yesterday I found them at the big city store!  I was so excited.  I had to make one just now to test it.  Very good.  7 mins at 450F in the CSO.  Flip.  Bake for 7 more mins.

Yay! My husband is the one that cooks the hash browns. He said I need to give him credit. True! His method: 


Crispy Hash Brown Potato Patty

From frozen:
CSO on Convection Bake at 375F (or 400F if your fan is not working) on rack (no pan, no foil) for 15 minutes, no flipping necessary. Put in immediately, do not wait for preheating. Then, Toast on 1 to crisp up exterior. Leave in oven until ready to plate/eat.

At Trader Joe's, I picked up some nice Brie-style cheese from Dorothy's Creamery in Illinois called "Keep Dreaming" and enjoyed some for breakfast on toasted baguette slices with some walnuts and a few cherries from the farmers market.

There's a fairly famous NYC breakfast called the LEO...lox, eggs and onion. I call this the LES,. not only because we live on the lower east side, but because it's lox, eggs and SPRING ONIONS. With a buttered, toasted bagel.

When we all descend on NYC on the LES we will expect that tasty looking breakfast. BTW the toast level on the bagel = excellent.

Husband enjoyed bacon and waffle, maple syrup and butter this morning.     I don't do maple syrup, but that bacon fat with pan-crunchies called out to me.    So, I fried up an egg in it to top my waffle.    Voila!    Waffle with runny egg and bacon fat drizzle, as sun streamed in the window.

Wow that looks perfect. I grew up with those flabby toaster (Eggo) things. A former beau gave me a wafflemaker as a wedding gift eons ago - we had no waffle tradition, and I never used it. Must be in my storage boxes. I think enough time has passed ;) Thanks for the inspiration.

LOL, I am reminded of a young man who was]my assistant years ago.   He came into work one morning fuming about his mother.   "She is SO LAZY.   Every morning for breakfast, waffles, waffles, waffles, every single day!"    I told him I thought that waffles were in fact a breakfast only a very devoted mother would make on a regular basis.    His answer,  "Eggo???"

Just to get you started, of course you can make all sorts of "real" waffles, but I find that Bisquik made with milk, a spoon of white vinegar and of oil, even skipping the suggested egg, works sublimely and without fuss.    And of course you can "waflle" all sorts of foods as described here on eG.

The very best waffles I have ever had in my life are these yeast waffles whose recipe, I think, came from the booklet that used to come with the Waring wafflemakers. I let mine go through two cycles of red light/green light so's to get them plenty crisp on the outside. Inside, they're mostly air with a few wisps of dough around it. 

 

I used to halve the recipe, but since acquiring the CSO, I've found you can freeze and reheat them pretty successfully. Sadly, I can eat them only very rarely since the celiac diagnosis.

@Margaret Pilgrim – lovely looking waffles.  I like them all – sweet, savory – I’ve even made stuffing waffles and topped them with leftover turkey and gravy. 

 

@kayb – I, too, love yeast raised waffles and use the CI recipe.  The yeast ones have the most flavor of any I’ve tried.

 

I’m trying NOT to eat big breakfasts and get rid of the 30-some pounds I’ve gained since Christmas, but the ham and good bread in the house were just whispering to me:

This was the Pane Turano bread from Aldi and some Christmas ham we thawed.  Great breakfast.

Those little booklets that came with various kitchen appliances "back in the day" - always a fun read, sometimes an excellent recipe. I'm pretty sure those places (Waring, Hamilton Beach, et al.) all had well-staffed test kitchens.

      When my mother recently passed away, because we are a scattered family, one of my younger brothers had the great idea of setting up a private Facebook page for the immediate family to talk in – mainly about funeral arrangements but also just in general.
       
      One topic, which I inadvertently started, was about her cooking. It’s fair to say, and she would agree, that cooking was not her forte. She was able to feed us but it was never exciting. That’s me being respectful.
       
      So we were joking amongst ourselves about that when the subject of her two most ‘original’ recipes came up and we each tried to remember exactly what was in them. Here, to the best of our ability, is what we agreed on.
       
      Pasta Mish-Mash
       
      Ingredients:
       
      Pasta. This had to be Marshall’s macaroni, a Scottish speciality and the only pasta I ever ate until I was about 18 years-old, apart from tinned spaghetti, usually in the form of spaghetti hoops.
       

       
      Bacon. This would normally be unsmoked Ayrshire back bacon. Not American bacon!
       

       
      Onions. White onions. We didn’t know they came in other colours.
       
      Tomatoes. Scottish tomatoes are surprisingly good.
       
      Salt. Common iodised table salt. You know. Natural salt. None of your fancy sea flavoured salt nonsense!
       

       
      Pepper. Black pre-ground and stale.
       

       
      Method:
       
      Boil pasta according to pack instructions. Or a bit longer if you get distracted. Drain.
       
      Cut bacon into pieces. Chop onion approximately finely. Chop tomatoes into eighths. Fry bacon and vegetables. When ready add drained pasta and mix. Apply seasoning if you remember. Even if you remember, under season.

      Serve.
       
       
      Polish Salad
       
      During WWII, around 17,000 Polish soldiers were stationed in Scotland, first temporarily in the border areas but later in east Scotland where my mother lived. (Her elder sister married one of them). Family lore has it (from my mother) that she learned this recipe from one or more of those soldiers.

      I’m fairly certain that there was little if anything Polish about it, but suppose its possible it was those soldiers’ attempt to recreate something from home without really knowing the recipe and having to use whatever they could find in the way of ingredients.

      If anyone here is Polish, of Polish descent or just knows more about Polish food than I do knows of any Polish dish that this could even vaguely resemble, I’d love to know. It was memorably distinctive - bright purple. I'm sure it glowed in the dark.

      Ingredients:

      Tomatoes
       
      Onions
       
      Apples
       
      Hard boiled eggs

      Pickled beetroot (store bought and pickled in malt vinegar)
       

       
      Heinz Tomato Ketchup

      Brown Sauce, preferably HP Sauce.
       

       
       
      Method:
       
      Chop all the ingredients except the ketchup and brown sauce into small pieces and mix together.
       
      Mix ketchup and brown sauce in a 50:50 ratio, and fold into the other ingredients. If too dry, add a little of the beetroot pickling liquid.
       
      Serve
       
      Father's 'recipe' coming up next.

      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.
