Frog and toad in the hole from Melissa Clark's cookbook Dinner: Changing the Game.

So I searched and searched for this recipe using Google to no avail. It would seem that one needs to own the book in order to access it. Amazon was kind enough to tell me that I did indeed own the damn book.

 

I was much more interested in discovering why it got the name it did.

Here is a quote from the book:

 

“Breakfast sausages are the frogs, eggs are the toads, toast makes the holes.”

 

Nothing in my experience can make this make any sense whatsoever. “Toad in the Hole” is well known British dish in which sausages are cooked inside Yorkshire pudding with the sausages being the toad. So how did they mutate into frogs? Apparently they acquired US citizenship. “Toad in the Hole” in that country refers to an egg cook inside a piece of toast in which a round hole has been created. It’s early in the morning but I think I need a scotch.

Oddly enough, I know that egg/toast treatment as "Sunshine in the Window". Sounds much more appetizing than "Toad in the Hole", if you ask me. ;)

That bacon sarni looks delicious! I was once in Yorkshire UK, where they were eating a hamburger type bun with just bacon rashers and it was called ‘Bacon Butti’! There was also another version called ‘Chip Butti’ with potato chips (fries).

It's 'butty' or 'buttie' and is very common in the UK, especially in north England. Originally it just meant bread and butter, but can be now be any sandwich. Jam butties are also popular.

After yesterday's decadent breakfast, it was time for something healthier today.  Chia pudding and a blueberry-strawberry-banana smoothie I made in the Vitamix, topped with raspberries, mango, plain yogurt, and a handful of homemade granola plus a drizzle of honey.  Yet another idea from Half Baked Harvest.

Green lentils with hot dogs.  My grandma used to cut hot dogs ends when she cooked for me.  I miss my grandma.  She loved me the best when I was a child.  And she was an amazing cook considering the paucity of food available to her in the USSR.

Jamie Oliver’s interpretation of the kimchi toastie. His twist is to sprinkle grated cheese into a nonstick pan and when the sandwich is toasted on one side it is flipped and placed atop and left there until the cheese melts and adheres to the bread.

Ajvar used to reside in my fridge and pantry. Must re-visit. What brand? How does ghee compare to simple butter to you?

No idea. It was the last of the jar and my cleaning angel took away my recycles. Ghee is in a liquid state so it is more convenient.

Debating what to have for breakfast while sipping a mug of café de olla

959124849_IMG_1836(1).thumb.jpeg.693111da2956f09af336eedafcd97ccd.jpeg

I've been testing and tweaking recipes since I went to a restaurant in Burbank called Café de Olla and enjoyed their signature beverage.  

I think I've nailed the spice mixture and coffee strength. I  also like using a separate piloncillo syrup so I can add just a touch of it in a hot mug to complement the spices and a little more in a tall glass of iced café.

      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.

      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.

      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!

      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.

      Raspberry porridge
       
      Today, I used the best part of my raspberry shopping for my summer second breakfast. I recommend it for those who only drink coffee in the morning. The rolled oats and chia seeds ensure that it satisfies our hunger very well, and the empty bowl means that you are sorry the dish was so small.

      The inspiration for this dish comes from "Smaki życia" ("Flavour of Life") by Agnieszka Maciąg.

      Ingredients:
      100g of raspberries
      3 teaspoons of honey
      3 tablespoons of rolled oats
      2 teaspoons of chia seeds
      decoration
      3 teaspoons of natural yoghurt
      raspberries, blueberries, banana slices, cashews, sesame seeds

      Mix together the rolled oats with the chia seeds, pour in some hot water and leave for 20 minutes. Wash the raspberries and drain them. Leave a few nice bits of fruit for decoration. Blend the rest of the raspberries with the rolled oats, chia seeds and honey. Put it into a small bowl. Put the natural yoghurt on top. Decorate with the banana slices, blueberries, raspberries, sesame seeds and cashews.
