couldn’t do tuna at anytime of the day!

Scrambled duck eggs with toast. The toast was done in the Breville  smart oven.  I didn’t think I would ever say this but I think the newer model makes better toast than the Cuisinart steam oven.

The funny bit is that some could never do duck eggs ever - all in the mind, I'd happily do both ;)

Tots again

IMG_2726.thumb.jpeg.0878c71a0c1c6ca77b5baf9781c77ad1.jpeg

 

In addition to broccoli and red bell pepper, I added pickled jalapeños and replaced most of the grated cheddar with a drizzle of a queso-like sauce. 

The sauce is from Chris Shepherd's book Cook like a Local where he uses it a Chile Tater Tot Casserole and something called Lamburger Helper.  

The sauce has onion, garlic, Crystal hot sauce and sambal oelek in addition to cheddar cheese and heavy cream.  It is very rich and very delicious.

From others who have made it, the tot casserole turns the tots rather mushy.  Some people like it that way.  Fans of the crispy tot have turned it into something more like totchos than a casserole and I plan to try that. 

The recipe is available online here:  Chile Tater Tot Casserole

Lentils cooked lovingly by me in home made beef stock, canned chickpeas rinsed thoroughly by me, garlic chives that I am addicted to, leftover Chick-fil-A chicken.  Egg on top makes it breakfast.

A plate of tater tots although they’re called something else by this company. They were plenty hot enough but next time I might try for a little more color.

I must say that your tater tots look much more like the ones I recall and certainly your preparation beats mine by much more than a country mile. It was your mention of the tots that persuaded me to throw them onto my shopping list so thank you.

OMG you ladies and your tots, I feel better knowing there are other adults out there like this. You can set a plate of the finest food in front of me, but if there are tater tots within say a 1/4 mile radius I'm going to start wondering where they and the ketchup are. @blue_dolphin you are obviously a tot artist of the highest caliber

Nice to see the tot love over here in the breakfast thread!  I'm pretty much a tot novice.  For sure, my first time to buy them and cook them at home.  It was slim pickings at my local Walmart Neighborhood Market.  Walmart brand "Taters" only, though I did have a choice of a 2 lb or 5 lb bag.   Someone told me the more disc-shaped type that @Anna N pictured have a better crispy surface area:interior ratio but these seem quite satisfactory. I bought the 2 lb bag thinking it would last a lifetime but I'm making good progress and can see a re-purchase in my future!

There is a whole tot topic over here although, aside from a few devotees, it hasn't seen a ton of tot love lately.  

 

It was in that thread that I found the idea for today's tot Sunday brunch special

IMG_2731.thumb.jpeg.324dea91ee8d13f6281f0f7de9288d88.jpeg

Scrambled eggs with sour cream filled tots topped with salmon roe.   Cut a slit in the top of the tot, squeeze from the ends to open it up, pipe in the sour cream and, lacking actual caviar,  top with roe. 

You may also note that's not a coffee mug in the background.  This was washed down with a nice glass of bubbly - the Trader Joe's Reserve Brut Rosé North Coast Sparkling Wine that I buy when it's available over the holidays and hoard for celebrations.  I realized that we're more than half way to next year's supply and with no parties, I haven't made much of a dent in my stash.  These days, fancy tots are as good excuse as I'm likely to get!

@weinoo – that was an awfully nice looking egg sitting on top of the rice.  Was it basted?

 

@liamsaunt – the egg croissant sandwich made me commit the sin of envy!  Just gorgeous.  And the BLT on the soft white is also delightful looking. 

 

@Shelby– oh, MY.  That lovely, lovely tomato sandwich.  Confession time: sometimes when we have really good tomatoes I’ve been known to make 2 halves of a tomato sandwich – one with toast and one with soft bread.  It’s so hard to decide between the two. 

 

Re: the dyed hair.  I’ve never done an unconventional color.  Unless you count the time in college that I was playing a Mexican lady.  I am a glow-in-the dark white girl with reddish/light brown/blondish hair.  I accidentally dyed my hair with permanent dye instead of washout and chose “midnight black”. 😳 Anyway, Jessica DID dye her hair blue in HS.  She was an acolyte at church and when some of the more staid members of our congregation expressed disapproval to the priest he said, “I’ve got a teenager who shows up every week, excited to serve her church and her faith.  I’m not saying a word to her and neither should you.” 🥰

 

Some recent breakfasts:

IMG_2785.jpg.eb6ff7c52f318e243d9d7a5f2cd82299.jpg

Toast, some lovely peaches from Charlottesville VA area orchards and scrambled eggs. 

 

My birthday was the 9th and Mr. Kim went out early for bagels:

 IMG_2786.jpg.97acaac80164b414ba1ae2d9346919f7.jpg

Egg and bacon ET bagel. 

 

Yesterday:

Good tomatoes on toast for breakfast brings back my childhood.  Except back then it was Miracle Whip instead of Dukes.  Momma never liked mayonnaise.  And that GREEN RINGED egg looks awful, but it tasted good.  Too much natural release in the IP. 

 

 

Today:

IMG_2842.thumb.jpg.c87103e1fe371e0b43a679d5ef331b2d.jpg

A hot crusty roll filled with too much butter is another childhood favorite.  This was from Wegman’s bakery, but Momma used to get the Pepperidge Farm ones in the bread aisle.  They still make them, but now they are called Artisan French rolls and are frozen.  Not the same to me.

This morning, all the recent talk of tater tots made me add hash brown patties to my last delivery.  I crisped one up in a waffle iron and topped it with a poached egg with a little aleppo pepper.

Cottage cheese and fruit are so good together.  This time of year I mostly am chucking in handfuls of blueberries, but I love it with peaches, nectarines, pears, pineapple...

      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

      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.
