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

Recommended Posts

The ever delicious QA-BLAT sandwich (Queso Americano, Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado, and Tomato).

Panaderia Canadiense - That looks like what I am now gong to have for dinner tonight!

The other morning I found I had a leftover grilled chicken thigh, so I made a faux "fried rice" using TVP (textured vegetable protein). I rehydrated the TVP with chicken stock and added some peas, corn, onion, water chestnuts, and a scrambled egg. Topped it all with crispy chicken skin and some sriracha.

WOW Kate, now that looks good!

Was this picture taken in a lightbox?

Nah, I'm too lazy for such efforts - like all my pictures, this was just taken haphazardly on the edge of my countertop with my iPhone! Only difference was this was pre-dawn, so what you see are the full glare of the kitchen lights. :wink:

NICE sandwich too, sir.

... in a lightbox?

It looks more like a close encounter of the third kind (lighting-wise, I mean - the food looks delicious).

Hmmm, that may explain so very much..

People look down on TVP, but ever since I did a 10 day survival course and basically ate nothing but TVP, I have a bit of a bent for it..think I'm going to get some this weekend, thanks!

Breakfast this morning was plain smoked salmon, on avocado and rye crackers, and a lot of black pepper:

percyn – it looks like they have stores in Yorktown and Williamsburg – not too far to go. I’d love to try those sausages.

RRO – I love the looks of that avocado and salmon breakfast!

Breakfast this morning for Mr. Kim:

Kim, the BBQ sausage was from Jimmy's BBQ in Malvern, PA and as far as I know, they only have the one location (I could be wrong). However, many BBQ places make their own sausage, the best one I had was a jalapeno sausage in Austin, TX.

This morning, since I had some jumbo lump crab meat, I made Crab Eggs Benedict - with a schmear of bacon jam and sprinkled with smoked bacon salt.

percyn - I should have been more specific - the sausage I was talking about was the pretzel sausage from farther back. BTW - that is one gorgeous poached egg!

Ahh...my error. When the weather cools, I can mail you some of those pretzel dogs if you like. I am sure one can make it at home, especially easy if you find pretzel dough.

The eggs I used were from an organic, open pasture farm and the yolks seems to be more orange and hold their shape better. Bought another dozen yesterday, lets see how the new batch turns out.

I know. I could have kicked myself when I got home! They are $17 a JAR at amazon and almost $10 at a specialty store an hour away.

That would be great, percyn - there is a store in Williamsburg (just 45 minutes east of us), so if we don't get there in the next month, or so I'll let you know. Thank you!

Sunday was Mr. Kim’s birthday! Breakfast was roasted white peach and cream cheese stuffed croissants French toast style with Benton’s bacon:

Topped with maple/caramel syrup:

I've made this with bananas and strawberries before - this was the first time I've used peaches and I think it was the best.

Tofu lightly browned in a dry skillet warmed with a caponata style prep I had in the fridge. The sauce contained very ripe homegrown tomatoes, Japanese eggplant also from the garden, serrano and habanero chiles (habanero halved for flavor and removed), onion, garlic, dried cranberries (no raisins in the pantry), fish sauce (no anchovies either), brined nasturtium seed pods (in lieu of capers) and a touch of red wine and balsamic vinegars. Topped it with some snipped Italian parsley and a few croutons. It really hit the spot with the contrasting flavors and textures.

Genkinaonna – just tell me the date – I’ve always longed to see Oregon; everyone I know who has been has fallen in love with it.

Soba – that tomato and yogurt salad is one of the most beautiful things you’ve ever posted (and that’s saying something).

My mother was up last weekend looking at apartments – we ate out every meal except breakfast on Sunday, which was a repeat of Mr. Kim’s birthday breakfast since we are still getting really good stone fruit:

Roasted white peach stuffed croissant French toast, bacon and grapes.

Breakfast yesterday morning was eggs, sausage and biscuits. Mr. Kim’s plate:

I added a tomato biscuit to my plate:

This morning was basically the same meal before hitting the yard with rakes, brooms and a chain saw. Irene blasted through last night and left us with a huge tree limb through our shed roof, but nothing else, thank goodness! Hope everyone in her path here at eG can say the same!

As much as I want to post the breakfast that I eat everyday, it is just all oatmeals or cereals everyday. Thinking of something to spice it up a little bit.

That's a weird omelet. When I used to eat heavy breakfast, I used to make a corned beef omelet. One of my favorite breakfast. :)

      Couldn't find a topic devoted to sourdough discard cooking, so thought I would start one and see how much interest it would generate. Moderators, if there is a topic, please merge.
       
      Recently I have begun making sourdough bread and am caring for a sourdough starter. Since there is currently some difficulty finding flour (due to COVID-19 related supply chain issues, etc.) I don't want to throw out any of my sourdough starter. I am also following guidance from King Arthur Flour and Cooks Illustrated for working with a small sourdough starter (10 g. flour | 10 g. water | 10 g. sourdough starter) and using recipes that use smaller amounts of sourdough starter or only building my starter up if called for by a recipe.
       
      I have made the following recipes and would make them again:
      - King Arthur Flour sourdough discard crumpets. https://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/sourdough-crumpets-recipe
      - King Arthur Flour sourdough discard waffles. I used a mix of yogurt & milk instead of buttermilk but otherwise made the recipe as written.  https://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/classic-sourdough-waffles-or-pancakes-recipe
       

       

       
      What are you doing with your sourdough discard?

      After a delightful brunch at Koslow's Sqirl restaurant in Los Angeles, I've decided to attempt to cook through her cookbook. I'll post my results here.
       
      Please follow along and join in, if you're so inclined. Her food is wonderful, but I will surmise that her true deliciousness comes from using the best and freshest ingredients. I'll do my best to recreate the magic I felt at Sqirl.

      Breakfast in India vs Breakfast in our homes outside India
      My breakfasts have varied from the time I started to cook for myself instead of just enjoying my Mother’s cooking. At first they were a mix-match of meal fixings, or just dinner leftovers. Or the good old breakfast cereal and milk. But as the years passed and I was more organized, the meals I enjoyed in my Mother’s home began to swim in my memories. And I began to prepare those for my family. However, I am no amazonian chef, so depending on  the hectic nature of the days plans, I switched back and forth from convenience with taste, to elaborate and of course tasty breakfasts. We do have both vegetarian and non vegetarian foods but Indian breakfasts will mostly be vegetarian. 
      So here are some of the things I might make: 
       
      1. Poha as in mostly ‘kande pohe’.
      2. Cheela/ Pudla
      3. Masala toast
      4. Indian Omelette
      5. Handwo piece
      6. Thepla
      7. Vaghareli rotli
      8. Dhokla chutney
      9. Idli sambhar
      10. Leftover sabji
      11. Muthiya
      12. Khakhra
      13. Upma
      14. Paratha
       
      1. Kande Pohe: 
      The dish derives its name from Maharashtra where the Kande Pohe are celebrated as breakfast. They can of course like any breakfast, be eaten at any time. 
      Pohe/ Poha are steamed rice grains that have been beaten flat and then again redried. So they are like Rice flakes. Except they are hand pounded, so have a knobbly texture. 
      You get several varieties in the market. I prefer the thick white variety. 
       
      1 cup dry poha per person
      1 medium onion sliced
      1/2 jalapeno deseeded
      1 sprig curry leaves
      2 small garlic cloves
      1/4 t cumin seeds
      1/2 lemon 
      1/8 t asafoetida
      1/4 t turmeric
      small handful of cilantro leaves
      1T fresh grated coconut
      2 T Peanut oil 
      salt to taste
      sugar to taste
       
      In a pan heat some oil and add cumin seeds. When the seeds sputter, add sliced onions and stir. Saute on medium heat till they turn slightly browned here and there. Do not burn the onions. 
      Meanwhile wash the Poha in a colander and drain. Do this two or three times to get rid of any dirt and also to allow them to rehydrate. They do not need soaking. Fluff the poha with a fork. Add salt sugar turmeric asafoetida and chopped cilantro. Mix and set aside. 
      Once the onions are ready add minced garlic and chopped jalapeno along with the curry leaf sprig. 
      Turn the heat to low and add the poha mixture. Stir to coat and to allow the turmeric and asafoetida to cook. The poha will turn mildly yellow and start giving a wonderful fragrance. 
      Turn off the heat. Fluff gently and plate. Garnish with fresh grated coconut and a squeeze of lemon juice. 
      Finger licking good!! 
      Now when I make this next I will post a picture. 
      Update: Ok I felt the urge to have Kande Pohe for tonight’s dinner. So here is a picture. I am certain to enjoy it for breakfast as well. The measurement of 1 cup poha per person is too much for one meal. But carried over to another meal thats super good! I will also have some stir fried bok choy greens made in the same kadhai after the poha was done, and some cooked and sliced beetroot for salad. My family will add some haldiram sev on the poha for extra crunch! And we will all have some chaas to round off this meal. 
      *************
       
      2. Cheela/ Pudla
       
      These are essentially crepes but in the Indian style. 
      1/2 cup sieved garbanzo bean (Besan) flour. 
      Water to form a thin batter
      1T plain yogurt 
      1/2 t ginger garlic paste 
      1/4 or less green chili crushed
      2 t heated oil *
      pinch asafoetida
      pinch turmeric 
      salt to taste
      chopped cilantro (two sprigs)
      some ‘masala’ from a readymade pickle
       
       
      Method:
       
      mix the ingredients together except oil. Heat oil in a separate pan and add about 1 to 2 t of the hot oil onto the batter. It will sizzle. Use a whisk to stir thoroughly. The batter should be pouring consistency. 
      Let the batter soak for about half an hour if possible. 
      On a hot griddle, pour a ladle full of the batter. Turn the griddle with your wrist to spread the batter around. Cook on moderate to high flame. Flip the crepe when all the sides look like they are ready. You can add a little oil to the sides of the frying pan to make the edges crispy. 
       
      In my home we usually have a Besan cheela with some yogurt its a quick and filling breakfast. You can have a small salad or fruit with it to make it more complete. Or fill the center of the cheela with some cottage cheese and fold for added creaminess! 
      ****************
      3. Masala Toast : 
       
      1 slice of bread (your choice) toasted
      1/2 small red onion minced
      1 medium roma tomato diced (or whatever you have)
      cilantro (few leaves)
      1/8 t cumin (optional)
      1/4 t chaat masala ( available in stores)
      1 inch cube paneer
      1 T peanut oil
      pinch turmeric (optional)
       
      Heat the oil in a pan and saute the onions. Add the tomato and cook down to mush. Crumble the paneer and add the dry spices. Stir for a few seconds to warm the paneer. Add the cilantro and though I have not written it as an ingredient, I like a few drops of lemon juice. Do not overcook paneer.
      I started this topic because someone asked for Indian recipes on the new forum. I don’t think they have seen any yet. I hope they find this useful. I am enjoying it. 
      **************************
       
      I will add recipes to the list slowly. I have to however add that after a certain ‘age’ I have now resorted to having to make sure I have three things for breakfast besides coffee: a glass of water, a small portion of fruit and a small portion of some protein not necessarily meat.
