Breakfast 2022

Oh, those gooey runny egg yolks that everyone is showing off look SO good.  I’m adjusting to some new meds, so I know that my tummy couldn’t take them, but I really want them. 

 

@blue_dolphin – I really love the tea towel.  I’m going to be digging through my recipes to try to find something in my grandmother’s handwriting to do this with. 

 

We recently had a ladies’ breakfast meeting at church, and I made this blueberry breakfast cake to take:

A good friend made this for us one morning when we stayed with them in Florida and I’ve loved it ever since.  It goes together very easily and holds very well for a few days.  I was afraid I’d messed it up this time because it felt really heavy and didn’t brown very much, but it was perfect inside.  Jessica and I both felt that some demerara sugar rather than white sugar on top would have looked better. 

 

With one thing and another, I haven’t posted much lately, so here are a few recent breakfasts:

1-IMG_0642.jpg.fa3ab8540cc4c0d5c8c7879060c66b2d.jpg

English muffins, scrambled eggs, and canned corned beef – one of many guilty pleasures!

Freezer biscuits – one with honey and butter and the other with ham and blackberry jam.

Freezer waffles and some ham leftover from making the macaroni salad this past weekend.

Godmother's Egg Salad in I Dream of Dinner is named for the flagship sandwich at Bay Cities Deli in Santa Monica.  Both the sandwich and this egg salad include prosciutto, salami, pickled peppers, onion, and mustard, among other things.

Godmother's Egg Salad

I looked at that and tried hard not to turn up my nose as it were. It just seemed to be over the top and not necessarily in a good way.
You generally share your opinion of a recipe that you have made so I’m wondering if you enjoyed this.

I enjoyed my breakfast immensely but the stars of the show were a spectacularly flavorful tomato and the lightly toasted ciabatta. The egg salad was an acceptable condiment that I'm glad I tried but won't make again.

Glad I tried because it doesn't use any mayo, just mixes the broken up, cooked eggs with some olive oil to emulsify the yolks and I was curious how that would work. Fine, though I prefer mayo.

Won't make again because I don't like onions in egg salad.  These were briefly pickled in red wine vinegar and oregano so I was curious if that would be more appealing.  No.  Though I might try adding some of that chopped salami. 

I'm debating what to do with the rest of the egg salad. The author suggests spooning it over boiled potatoes so I think potato salad is not a far stretch.

Thanks for your explanation. I could imagine it might make a fine potato salad. I am guessing that onion is more acceptable to you in potato salad than egg salad. I find chives acceptable in egg salad but that’s about as oniony as I want to get. I am a fan of raw onions, usually.

Eggs with Smoky Scallion Oil from I Dream of Dinner

I've never been a fan of the "egg on yogurt" dishes.  Even when I let the yogurt come to room temp, it seems to cool things off too much but I noticed that Nigella Lawson recommends warming the yogurt to around body temperature and that made all the difference! The recipe called for asparagus, I subbed a sliced portobello mushroom and it made a nice bed for this fresh farmers market duck egg.

I was inspired by @blue_dolphin’s egg salad but stuck closely to my usual preparation.

I cooked two eggs in the air fryer (270° for 12 minutes). I peeled them and mixed them with some butter (like blue_dolphin I didn’t fancy mayonnaise this time) and some chopped celery. (A visitor left a large amount of celery in my crisper drawer.) I added a little salt and then opened a can of smoked mackerel and added some of that to the plate. I was quite happy.

First meal of the day was this pan of Harissa Chickpeas with Feta from I Dream of Dinner:

Paratha from Trader Joe's that I excavated from the freezer and a bowl of celery sticks and raw sugar snap peas.

@Ann_T– thank you, ma’am.  I’m pretty sure I’d also pick ham!  I love both sweet and savory with breakfast, but if I have to choose savory wins out every time.  I’d dive right into Moe’s French toast, though! 

 

Tuesday:

Corned beef (canned), leftover corn muffins, and a fried egg. 

 

Yesterday:

1-IMG_0721.jpg.b0fdc7ad693ad5f33f6bcf4152c4549d.jpg

Leftover biscuits, the last of the canned corned beef and an ugly egg.  I was so afraid that the egg would be awful.  I did a dozen in the IP and lost track of time.  They ended up languishing after the pressure cooking stopped for almost an hour.  But they are fine.  Just a little green around the yolk.

@Kim Shook I love corned beef hash as well and mine comes in a can. How do you get yours so perfectly crisped? 

I use a non-stick pan, a bit of butter, heated up over medium before adding the slices.  Then I let them fry without moving for probably 3 minutes before flipping.  Even with a non-stick pan, it wants to stick to the pan, so you have to use a thin spatula and really COMMIT to it!

Merguez with sweet potatoes and dates from I Dream of Dinner. I was going to fry an egg to top this off but I decided to dig right in and have no regrets.

Sweet potatoes, sausage, dates and lemon slices get tossed with olive oil and go into the oven together while you make a quick chermoula-ish sauce. I've made other versions of this sort of thing but the combo of charred lemon slices and dates is excellent.
