Braunschweiger and Mayo on Toast

 

 

So jealous!  I put Braunschweiger in my on-line cart   and was quite bummed when it was out of stock. I put liverwurst as an approved alternate - also out of stock.

Love the bug plate - I have to admit that it gave me a start 🐜!

 

Ha! The first time @robirdstx   showed the plate all I could envision was "oh she is eating out by the pool and had uninvited guests.

Sous-vide pork tenderloin on toast. I would not normally sous vide pork tenderloin since it’s already very tender but my daughter had heard my plea for  some pork and  picked up both a tenderloin and a loin.  Seemed convenient and reasonable to put them both in at the same time.

[ed.:  N O T B :  54.5 ]  

 

 the meat will be easier to slice very thin when chilled

Have not yet got around to trying the loin. I find for my own tastes 58°C works great.

@blue_dolphin – loved reading about Fettuccine Alfredo vs Pasta all'Alfredo.  I realized after seeing the video that while I may not have eaten much Fettuccini Alfredo in the past (see dinner thread), I have been eating Pasta all’Alfredo all my life.  In my family, Pasta all’Alfredo is what you give to babies who aren’t ready for tomato sauce yet and to sick people and to yourself when you need a little comforting.  It’s funny to sometimes find very Italian things still happening in my extremely assimilated Washington DC via Mississippi Delta via Genoa Italy family.  Like the fact that they ALL put cabbage, white beans, and pasta in their "vegetable" soup. 

 

@Ann_T - gorgeous blueberries.  We love picking them in the summer and stocking the freezer with local ones.  On the Great British Baking Show whenever someone tries to bake with blueberries, one of the judges always says, “Blueberries don’t really have any flavor, do they?”.  Lead me to wonder where in the world they are sourcing tasteless blueberries! 😄

 

My breakfasts are all looking same-same, I know.  But the truth is that I am just not adventurous by nature and especially not in the morning.  If I eat at all, I want crunchy, buttery bread, eggs, and pork.  Potatoes if they are very easy or if someone else is making them.  Yesterday:

IMG_3097.thumb.jpg.0aa60aeff71a17208ad9c80f61cb4cfe.jpg

English muffins, NC sausage, IP eggs.

 

Today:

IMG_3111.thumb.jpg.1e225901fc8393f0eb390698d1b40a73.jpg

IP eggs, crumpets, and some of a ham slice that was languishing in the deli drawer.

I love the looks of those crumpets, @Kim Shook. Did you make them? It may be about time for me to do that again.

Had some eggs that were getting a little long in the tooth (what is this about “scarce as hens teeth”?) but really did not want to waste them. But I also  wanted eggs on toast. So they were boiled for five minutes, scooped into a bowl, seasoned and then spooned onto toast. Quite satisfactory.

Ham, Cheddar and Chive Omelette.

 

Your bread always looks so incredible and tasty. What is this one? The crust looks amazing!

 

I'm a bit of a neophyte, but I baked bread last night over in the dinner thread, and as I don't usually eat much for breakfast, just a slice (or three) toasted in butter this morning...

Ricotta Pancakes with Gooseberry Relish from Ottolenghi's Plenty More

1C010550-9629-47B0-8E4C-2BEC91D97FD4_1_201_a.thumb.jpeg.a9cb748e9c8f937f358b26a916cd1e89.jpeg

 

I'm sure that this relish is to be made with proper gooseberries, not the cape gooseberry/ground cherry/goldenberry that I used but I had these in hand so I ran with it.
The header notes caution that these are not light, fluffy pancakes but more eggy and cheesy and describes them like as a cross between cheesecake and clafoutis.  Their flavor is quite mild, I think I'd like some lemon or orange zest added to the batter but the mildness made for a nice contrast to the relish, almost a jam, which has a tart, bright flavor.  I subbed yogurt for the crème fraîche the recipe calls for.

 

Also,  those are slices of satsuma plum on the plate - not beets!

Both the satsumas and the leftover gooseberry relish will be making an appearance in popsicles sometime soon!

I did see them as plums, and very nice looking ones.  Though not a pancake person unless they envelop a savory mix, I did see that in the book. My mind went to goat milk something as the dairy. Or coconut.  Ya got me thinking.

Yeah, if I were to try this again, I’d go the savory route - add Gorgonzola, goat cheese or Parm to the ricotta, maybe a hint of garlic or some green onions.  Diana Henry has a version with zucchini that I’d consider trying.

I'm making a savory clafoutis with chevre, zucchini and roasted tomatoes for dinner. I'll probably add mixed herbs, garlic and parmesan.

In addition to the baguette I requested, they brought me this:

Brunch.

A friend made us a Kubaneh bread. It's a rich "pull apart" bread of Yemenite Jewish origin which is baked overnight. It's very pretty and delicious, she is very talented.

Flavored with butter, slowly caramelized sugar and fenugreek, it has a delightful savory-sweet aroma of butterscotch and brioche.

Served with haminados eggs, raw tomato sauce, home made zchug, cheese, veggies and pickles, ouzo.

I also made Yemmani style split pea soup, flavored with celery, onion, chili, garlic, hawaij, dried mint and a few more spices. Served with strained buttermilk.

Also had some Kubaneh with honey and salt.

      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.

      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.
