Breakfast 2022

Kind of a snacky breakfast today.  Fresh veg and tater tots with Kim Chee Dip from Sheldon Simeon's Cook Real Hawai'i.  I skipped the fried garlic topping on the dip but will have to give it a try.

He recommends serving this dip with Cool Ranch Doritos or any "-itos."  No chips in the house so I made the tots extra crispy!

Looks amazing and sounds equally so. I  especially admire the variety of textures.

@gfweb - I would eat arancini any time of the day or night!

 

This morning was slider buns with sausage patties:

Jessica and I are headed up to Northern VA tomorrow for a couple of days and Mr. Kim is going to NC for a BBQ judging event Saturday.  So, while supplies are getting low I don't really want to shop before we go out of town.  Not a bad breakfast.  Not a clue what Mr. Kim and Jessica ate!

I had never had creamed mushrooms on toast until I was in Ireland in 2018. It was a revelation to me and has become one of my "I don't really feel like cooking" go-tos. I usually make it on sourdough toast. Now I'm suddenly craving it.

I was introduced to them via a Diana Henry recipe in her book, Simple.  And I've also been craving them since seeing @Anna N's post.  I may have to go to the store just for mushrooms!

A friend brought me some nice bitter greens from her garden:

I sautéed some with garlic, piled them on a hash brown and topped them with a poached egg:

Gorgeous egg, perfectly cooked.

doing an egg to desired perfection is actually duck soup easy.

(1)   keep the eggs in the same place in the fridge.  keep them in the fridge until ready to drop into already boiling water.

(2)  put the egg(s) into already boiling water for m:s minutes/seconds.  timing is a trial/error/experiment data point.

 

in this method, the only uncontrolled variable is the boiling point of water as varied by atmospheric pressure.

if one researches the difference in water boiling point by the extremes of high/low atmospheric pressure, one learns it's a non-issue.

 

if one researches the congealing temperature of egg white and egg yolk, one will rapidly learn stuff like sour vide - i.e. bring the whole egg to one temperature -  simply cannot work - and doesn't.  the white or the yolk is going to be over/under cooked - not matter what saturation temp is used.

With the freshest of eggs, this is quite true. Today's egg was from last week's farmers market so already in my fridge for a week.  Likely still fresher than what's on many supermarket shelves, but not the best for poaching as the thinned whites don't form up as nicely as when fresh.  In this case, I rely on Julia Child's recommendation to lower the whole eggs in their shell into the boiling water for 10 sec before cracking them into the water.  I poke a hole in each shell with a pin but I can't remember if Julia did that or it was my own concern about equalizing pressure.

Absolutely true.  Boiling and poaching are the route to nicely cooked whites with runny yolks.  Just  master the timing for your fridge temp, egg size and personal yolk doneness and your reward will be great!

You keep your eggs in the Fridge!?? WT?

as often mentioned here American (US) eggs are scrubbed and have lost their protective coating - so  yes = fridge

American habit. They have this mad idea of washing off the natural protective coating (that eggs come with) before selling them. I've never seen it anywhere else.

Croissant, cheese, sausage and egg - plus a few shakes of hot sauce. Enjoyed on the terrace …

Not breakfast today, but for next weekend when we'll have out of province guests for the weekend. Loosely based on Ina's granola. Less oil and lower oven temp (300 as opposed to 350.) Baked rolled oats, sliced almonds and coconut. Toasted pepitas and cranberries, raisins and dried apricots will join the party once the granola is cooled.

French toast, very custardy. Ricotta with vanilla, mullberries, maple.

Drooling.  That looks so good.

 

Our mulberry trees look to maybe have a good year.  Fingers crossed we will have some in a month.

I forget.  Can you buy them in markets over there?  Here I've never seen them sold but I don't get out much.  We have to compete with raccoons and bugs lol.

Not really. Can order at direct-from-farmers websites at ~13-14 USD a pound, but never had.

We have to compete with the ants, the porcupines, and birds. But there's usually enough still.

Hope you'll have plenty this year.

Now I'm perplexed. The oats/coconut/almond mixture is nicely toasted. I made sure to get fresh dried fruit (ie. not use the stuff I have had in the cupbaord since pre-covid.) Since the fruit is quite moist, I'm sure that if I mix it in with the rolled oats and coconut and nuts, it will make them soft. I'm fine to store them separately for a week til our guest are here, but how should I store the dried fruit? Loosely covered at room temp?

Should work. Fridge for longer storage, or if you have the space.
