Breakfast! The most important meal of the day (2004-2011)

Recommended Posts

Just after I was saying how I don't eat breakfast often, it's been three days in a row.

This morning I invited a friend/colleague over before she went to work. She loves French Toast and I made Orange French Toast, assembled last night and baked this morning, with Johnnybird's Toast Dope sprinkled on it before baking. We ate it with butter and maple syrup on it, and I was in sugar shock the rest of the morning.

Liverwurst sandwich with onions, spicey mustard, mayo, and fried onions on a flax seed roll.  Perfect easy way to start the day.

Great minds think almost alike. Toasted Acme sourdough, smeared with Malle Dijon and liverwurst. Mine was easier and faster to assemble.

:raz:... <== me drooling over liverwurst sandwiches. I don't know why I never thought of having it for brekkie before!

Today was a gorgeous fall day! Bright, but not too bright. So carefree, in fact, that indecisiveness called things even with a half roasted tomato, half smoked salmon omelette. Toppings and fillings in no order: gruyere, parmesan, thyme, dill, parsley, and capers. The parental units arrived home from a friend's garden with the baby tomatoes the night before. I gave them (the tomatoes, not the p.u.'s) overnight neutrality before tossing them up in evoo and sopping up the remains with fresh (buttered) parmasan toasts while contemplating the greater aspirations of the goodies before me.

Smoked Duck breast with free-range, hormone-free, farm-fresh egg, over-easy in some duck fat and clarified butter (hey, nobody said this was diet food !! Actually since breakfast seems to be a weekend meal for most of us, why not splurge ??)

Seriously, if you have not tried the D'Artagnan smoked duck breast, run to your grocer or order it from the D'Artagnan website, it is just fabulous. I usually eat this for breakfast (instead of beacon) or sometimes get their duck (leg) confit.

I made my daughter's chocolate chip and came up with this method to avoid the melted chocolate on the skillet: Pour the pancakes and sprinkle on the chips, then dab on a bit of batter on each chip before turning each one.

ooh, thanks for the great idea...this morning I made buttermilk pancakes and i made S/O's with bananas. I make these pancakes in a cast iron pan and when i flipped the banana pancakes, the banana left some residue so the subsequent pancakes stuck a bit.

My favorite part about this breakfast is not the pancakes themselves (which are delicious) but all the Stuff i serve with them: maple syrup, lemon curd, Nutella, various jams and marmalades.....S/O sticks with the Sarabeth's Peach Apricot, but I have to have a little bit of everything (one at a time) on each one.

You can also sprinkle granulated maple sugar on the top of a pancake just prior to flipping it over. The sugar carmelizes and is just yummy. (sorry, to those who object to using words like "yummy", but it really is!)

I sprinkle it on my "mock" French toast, which is bread pudding, baked in a loaf pan then chilled, sliced and cooked on a griddle. Quick, no mess and the flavor is exactly the same, only better.

What a wonderful breakfast idea. Thanks for the recommendation of the D'Artagnan smoked duck breast. I'm drooling again... The eggs you cook rule!

This morning Russ made us sandwiches of sausage, egg, and cheese on toasted bread, with some of our big sage leaves in between the sausage and the cheese.

I'll be having a repeat of last night's quick supper: A sandwich made of rosmarino, provolone and garden-fresh tomato (the last one!) on ciabatta, lightly spread with Dijon on one side and mayo on the other.

Fabulous!

Rosmarino is ham, "massaged" with dried rosemary, then oven roasted. Imported from Italy. Has a fantastic flavor! New find for me...I bought it at Costco in the imported meat/cheese refrigerated section. Highly recommended!

      Omelette with courgette and tomato salsa.
       
      Today I added a bit of chili pepper to tomato-basil salsa. Because it was quite spicy I decided to add it to a mild dish. I prepared an omelette with courgette and goat cheese. The salsa added an excellent piquancy to it. I recommend this dish for a fast and light meal.

      Ingredients:
       
      omelette
      3 eggs
      150g of courgette
      3-4 slices of goat cheese
      2 tablespoons of milk
      1 tablespoon of flour
      1 tablespoon of butter
      salt and pepper
       
      salsa
      2 tomatoes
      3 tablespoons of minced basil
      quarter of an onion
      2 cloves of garlic
      half a chili pepper
      3 tablespoons of olive oil
      2 tablespoons of lemon juice
      1 teaspoon of honey
       
      Start by preparing the salsa. Cube the tomato and dice the garlic, onion and chili pepper. Mix the vegetables together. Make a sauce with the olive oil, lemon juice and honey. Add it to the vegetables and mix it in. Leave in the fridge.
      Slice the courgette very thin. Whisk the eggs with the milk and add the flour. Spice it up with salt and pepper. Melt the butter in a pan. Pour half the egg mass into it and fry for a while at medium heat. Arrange half of the courgette slices on top along with the slices of goat cheese and the rest of the courgette. Pour the rest of the egg mass onto it and fry it. When the eggs have congealed, turn the omelette upside down and fry for a few seconds. Serve at once with the tomato salsa.

      Enjoy your meal!

      Holiday brunch.
       
      During the holiday, eating is a waste of time for my children. Although breakfast should be a balanced and calm meal, at this time it is eaten quickly and carelessly. Sometimes I need to wrest my children away from their play and nourish their young bodies with brunch.

      Today I would like to share with you the recipe for a very simple egg and vegetable brunch. Though my children like all vegetables, the look of the food made them anxious. Only the soft boiled eggs settled them down and got them eating. After a while there were two empty glasses in the dishwasher and my children could go back to playing. It was good, because the holiday is almost over.

      Ingredients (for 3 people)
      half an onion
      2 cloves of garlic
      1 tablespoon of butter
      300g of courgette
      1 red pepper
      2 tomatoes
      2 sprigs of rosemary
      2 sprigs of thyme
      3 tablespoons of minced chives
      3 eggs

      Dice the onion and garlic and fry them in butter. Remove the core from the tomatoes. Cube the courgette, tomatoes and red pepper. Put one of the cubed tomatoes to one side. Add the second tomato and the rest of the vegetables to the onion and stew on a low heat for 10 minutes. Boil some water and carefully put the eggs into the water. Boil for 5 minutes. Cool them down and carefully remove the shell. Mix the stewed vegetables in with the rest of the tomato. Spice it up with salt and pepper. Put the vegetables into a cup. Arrange the eggs on top and cut them up with a sharp knife. Spice up the egg with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the chives.
      Serve at once.

      Enjoy your meal!

      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.

      My long-time Bullet gave up the ghost over the weekend and since we had a couple of free hours and were in the States...where the Walmarts are different from those in Canada...I went smoothie blender looking.
       
      We found a suitable Hamilton Beach 'Go Sport' Blender and brought it home.  The specs looked good and the price was just fine.
       
      HOWEVER...two major flaws in this blender which are worth noting.
       
      1.  The blender bottle opening is quite narrow and I need a modified funnel to get my ingredients into it with ease.  Rats.  OK.  I can do this.
       
      2.  And even worse.  This unit has NO protected blending blades.  That is, if you plug the unit in, put the cutting blades into the unit and turn the unit on and are being stupidly careless...as we have all been known to be...you can get your fingers cut to ribbons!!  (No, I did not do it.  Yet.)  Now, the directions do tell you THE safe way to use the blender...but they don't make any reference to the fact that you...OR MORE IMPORTANTLY, A CHILD...could massacre their fingers in this unit.  I was really surprised.  I can't recall the last electrical kitchen appliance which was so open to misuse and accident.  Almost all must have all the protective units in place before the blades will even work.   You'd have to do something truly unusual to hurt yourself using one.  (OK.  Go ahead.  Post all the exceptions to my statement.  )
       
      I post this just in case.
