The Breakfast Thread
« on: July 10, 2020, 09:11:35 AM »
Inspired by ab_grp's post in the "Dinner" thread.

We are about to break our fast, at 12:!0pm EST. On today's menu:

Beverage = Coffee with milk and sugar

Side = Toast with butter and apricot jam

Main course = Scrambled eggs with hot sauce

Yay! I'm still hungry and getting hungrier.  I think we will have slightly runny fried eggs and leftover potatoes from last night and split an everything bagel.  Or maybe we will each have a bagel.  We have veggie cream cheese and jalapeno cream cheese (which actually also goes really well on cinnamon raisin bagels? spouse tried that, being the jalapeno fiend, but it really is yummy!).  Beverage is and will be plain old coffee without accouterments (and water).

What kind of apricot jam do you get, or do you make it? We have a couple varieties from Bonne Maman.  I think the apricot is preserves, but it's so good.  Now I want to make popovers.

Say more about the hot sauce, please.

The same thing I have every day: a bowl of Nature's Path cereal with two teaspoons of regular Ovomaltine/Ovaltine on top, with skim milk.
I know it's a genus.

Guess I have nothing much to contribute here.  My standard breakfast is a glass of juice.  What fruit it comes from does vary now and then.  I only eat a solid breakfast when I'm traveling.

So, I tried to straighten everything out and guess what I got for it.  No, really, just guess!

Organic oatmeal with egg, raisins, and dried cranberries. (My mom buys it by the pound in the bulk foods aisle from the organic store in town) Fresh blueberries (in season) and milk added. I'll also eat an orange with the oatmeal.

Oatmeal with milk and a diced fresh peach.  Yum!  This will continue to be my breakfast until the peaches run out.  Normally I add pecans, but I forgot today.  Today's tea:  BeerButter (black tea flavored to taste like Butterbeer from Harry Potter, comes in a cute tin).

Each AM, early:

1/2 chocolate croissant
1 cup cocoa

Second breakfast: c. 10 AM or so.

1/2 egg sandwich (or, occasionally, an omelette, or waffles, or pancakes, but usually the egg sandwich)
1/2 slice of toast with raspberry, apricot, or strawberry jam/preserves etc.
1 cup/tea (first of many for the rest of the day).

This morning:
Avocado toast: homemade sourdough, avocado, feta, garden tomato, scallion, everything bagel seasoning
Homemade cold brew coffee with milk, in a mason jar.

I know this breakfast makes me look like an insufferable hipster but it was damn good and I won't apologize for it ;)

So many yummy ideas.

I ordered more jalapenos and apricot jam (actually preserves). It's the same brand that you mentioned ab_grp. I used to buy a French brand from the farmer's market, but I haven't ventured up there in some time. BM is still pretty good.

Edit: Oh, and hot sauce is a must on eggs. Definitely.

Avocado is fine. Whatever happened to the Bloody Mary as a breakfast beverage?

This sounds lovely, Mamselle (especially the chocolate croissant), but why half of everything? How does one make a half egg sandwich?
