Yum!

I'll have to remember this next time I have leftover ham. But I have a feeling we'll be eating it at supper instead of breakfast. rolleyes.gif

May have posted this one before, don't remember, but it is a great hit with the kids, even the youngest can help with this breakfast and feel they have contributed to the meal:


Recipe Name: EGG IN THE NEST
Category: 18TH CENTURY
Serves: 1

1 Slice of bread
1 Large egg
2 Slice bacon

Fry the bacon in your skillet. Meanwhile cut or tear out a circle
(I use a biscuit cutter) in the center of the bread. When the bacon is
done remove it from the pan and place the bread in the pan. Crack the
egg into the hole you created in the bread. Place the cut out portion in the pan to toast. Fry egg to your liking, turn over the cut out portion to brown the other side. The egg and bread can either be turned for a few seconds or left as sunny side up. Serve with the bacon.

For some reason kids love this simple breakfast....might be the name

Yes this sounds like more of a supper to most, but you must remember that the "Break Fast" was the meal most relied on to get them through the day.... supper came real late on the farm or homestead!

If you have fuel in your system to start the day off it makes it easier to get through the day.

Most often the breakfast was in mid morning ( just after sunrise, milking was done, the chickens feed, etc. ) We have so much a different life style now that we forget our roots and the importance of the first meal of the day.

Take the time when you can to help remember your past and celebrate the day with a good meal at it's start!

I actually used to do this when I spent the summers on my Grandfather's farm. Up at 5:00AM to help with the milking. Breakfast wasn't until about 8AM. By then I was good and hungry. Those days were the only times I really appreciated breakfast. Now it's two pieces of toast and iced tea. smile.gif

Just a thought...

What is everyone's favorite breakfast?

No, doughnuts do not count!

My favorite breakfasts:

1. Three eggs, over easy, with white toast, sausage patties, hash browns and coffee from a little storefront diner in Oak Lawn, Illinois called Veli's Kofy (pronounced coffee) Kup.

2. Two Sausage McMuffins with Egg from McDonalds and a bottle of lemon lime Gatorade.

Rye toast with butter and cinnamon and sugar - iced tea with lemmon. smile.gif

But, when I was on the farm, anything my aunt cooked tasted great. Eggs with homemade bread, buckwheat cakes - even with applebutter and headmeat. tongue.gif

Breakfast, my favorite meal of the day. Although due to habit and time I only eat breakfast about three times a week. Well, I guess those times I like to make up for the days I don't eat it.

But there is not one favorite breakfast but many combinations. Some of which I have already mentioned on the latin thread. Like Changa and bistec picado, or changa and salchichas guisada.

Sometimes a simple omelet, french style with chopped tomatoes and onions and peppers and ham folded into beaten egg cooked just right with cheese melted all over the stuffing.

Sometimes gravy made with ground beef and onions served over hard bread with a couple of fried eggs (runny) on the side.

Or maybe a couple of smoked pork chops, eggs, toast and fried potatoes (fried with onion and green peppers).

Oh yeah, some of those really good chorizos, cooked just right with eggs and potatoes (preferably left over baked potatoes that are crumbled and fried in butter with lots of pepper.)

Hmmmm, getting hungry.

For really special times, a shrimp omelet. About a half pound of small shrimp, peeled. A little white wine and butter (or beer). Culantro and garlic and a little lemon juice and salt.

In a skillet, melt the butter, add the salt and crushed garlic and culantro.
Allow to heat momentarily then add the beer or wine to make a little sauce.
Add the lemon juice to taste and check to be sure the other ingredients are just right.
If available add a small package of seafood consummé. Stir well and cook a few minutes. Check again.
Add shrimp all at once, return to boil then turn off the heat. Done when the shrimp turn pink.

Set aside, and beat two or three eggs with a little milk if desired. Pour into a hot skillet (not too hot) cook rather slowly and flip to cook the top before the bottom starts to brown. Top one side of egg with shrimp mixture and top that with grated mozarrela or country cheese. fold other half of egg over the shrimp side and turn off the heat. Cover for a few minutes and let set. (the cheese melts and helps hold everything together).

Serve with cold beer and those really tasty little 'michitas' (sort of a small diamond shaped bread that has been baked at a very high heat to make the inside really fluffy and the outside sort of toasty.

Yes. Perfect for those days when your village is having a three day long festival and no one will object too much to your drinking a beer with breakfast. tongue.gif

Fried Egg with Stilton Cheese, Canadian bacon and Chilies

Fry 2 slices of Canadian bacon in a skillet, remove when done and keep warm.
Then add 1 Tbls of butter to the pan; fry 2 eggs in this sunnyside up, add some chopped chilies to the top of egg while still very runny. Crumble about a teaspoon of Stilton cheese on top of all just before eggs are done to your liking. When the cheese melts remove the eggs to 2 large biscuits or rolls; top with the canadian bacon, some mustard or horseradish and serve hot.

On Sundays the most important meal of the day is breakfast (more brunch!) for us. We enjoy it to have the time to sit together as long as we want to, having a delicious meal and a good conversation!

Tried this recipe today, served with eggs, woohoo...YUMMY!!!
It became one of our favorites at once! biggrin.gif

This could go in the Cajun thread, but since it is a breakfast:


Recipe Name: CAJUN SCRAMBLE
Category: CAJUN
Serves: 2

1 teaspo Oil
1/2 teaspo Garlic minced
2 Tables Onion chopped
1/4 cup Green pepper chopped
1/4 cup Tomatoes chopped
1/4 teaspo Cajun seasoning
1/4 pound Andouille sausage cooked and diced
4 Eggs beaten

Heat the oil in a heavy skillet. Add the garlic, onion, and green pepper. Cook until just soft. Toss in the tomatoes, Cajun seasoning, and sausage. Add the beaten eggs and cook until just firm, stirring frequently. Serve warm.


You can substitute smoked sausage if Andouille isn't available.
