Title: What did you have for breakfast?
Post by: Cudzoziemiec on October 06, 2011, 06:56:40 pm
We have threads for other meals but not for breakfast.

So I'll start:
I had eggs scrambled with sambar powder (mixture of spices for veg, like a spicy ratatouille) and celery. It was good but could have been better with more celery for taste and perhaps a third egg to fill me up.

What about you?

1/2 grapefruit, 2 rounds of toasted sunflower & linsed bread, mug of coffee, orange juice.

I have the same most mornings, but often have a croisant instead of toast.

If it is cold & frosty, I often have porridge instead of the above.

People have mentioned tea and coffee, which reminds I forgot to mention a mug of strong, black tea. It's the first thing I do as soon as I get up and I take it so much for granted now, I didn't think to mention it. In the words of Arthur Ransom, "the most important part of the most important meal of the day."

At the time I was living in Ulverston, about 200 yards from Morcambe Bay. Treading for flooks (flounders to most of the world) was a later pastime, walk about in shallowish water in either bare feet or canvas soled waders and when you feel a fish tickle the soles of your feet, reach down and grab it.

Back to eggs today. Scrambled with garlic, celery and a lot of sambar powder. Mmmm! The celery is good in its own right but also provides cooling contrast to the spices. Then I rode down the hill to the bakery and when I returned had a couple of slices of still-warm granary bread and butter, and "Bishopston brownies". More mmmmmm!

Bowl of honey and nut cornflakes and a cup of tea this morning after making the clans packed lunches.

I then rode to work where I had a mug of tea.

1 hour after arrival at the desk, the post ride breakfast comprised of 3 slices of toast (granary)- 2 with "I can't believe people can't believe it's not butter" and one with Vegemite and another mug of tea.

I had eggs which were halfway between scrambled and omelette with courgette, red peppers and garlic. And pasta!

No milk in the house this morning, so couldn't have porridge, which was what I really wanted. No bread either and I didn't fancy eggs (had some yesterday) so instead I soaked some muesli in apple juice. It was good.

One of my favourites, which I haven't had for ages, is to soak some dried fruit overnight in water then use it in the (the fruit) in my cereal, and the soaking liquid to wet said cereal.

Works best with Granola and dried fruit that tastes of something, i.e. not dried apple.  Does not work with dried bananananananananana

Talking of banana, we've got in the fridge right now some juice which is apple, carrot and bananananana. Tastes good, but god knows how many banas they must need, the things have hardly any juice in them. Mind you, it is only 9% bana.

That's what I had - but with granola.

My normal breakfast is porridge soaked in apple juice (soaked overnight - I make 2 or 3 days worth at a time), with a spoonful or two of natural yoghurt, some fresh blueberries, and some toasted flaked almonds. I have that nearly every day, varying the fruit.

One of my favourite morning food treats is breakfast pancakes - oats, milk, eggs and chopped bacon mixed into a thick batter and cooked on the griddle. It's essentially a cross between a fry-up and porridge and it's truly delicious. Try it - you might like it!

That's very similar to my usual breakfast - porridge made with water but with cooked apple mixed in, topped with a dollop of Greek yogurt, a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of toasted almonds. Sometimes have blueberries or cherries as well as/instead of apple.

I think it needs the bacon, not sure it'd work so well without. Maybe replace the bacon with something else - smoked salmon, perhaps. Or a bit of cheese. Or just some fresh herbs and crank up the seasoning slightly.

Yes, I imagine gruyere would work quite well.

Proportions are something like 100g of oats, 2 eggs and no more than half a pint of milk. I tend to go by feel rather than measure precisely, but you want the batter to be pretty thick. And let it stand for a bit to allow the oats to soak up the milk - microwave oats are good as they're quite fine so soak it up quickly, or if you use normal porridge oats, you can whizz them up briefly in a food processor if you like, for the same effect.

Huge bowl of porridge with raisins and honey. 2x very thick toast with butter (Mrs B's yummy home-made bread with coriander seeds).

It lasted me until 3pm (with a 3 hour interlude of snowy off-road).

Yesterday I made American style pancakes. Much thicker and creamier batter than standard pancakes.  Making, surprisingly, a thicker pancake. Eaten with maple syrup. Nom.

The usual two 'nanas, chunks of pineapple, a bowlful of oats, homemade yogurt, honey and moo-juice - all szhooshed-up with a blender - making almost a litre of liquid frankenporridge, or lumpie (as opposed to smoothie) depending on how you look at it. I'll often substitute strawbs or raspberries for the 'napple when they're in season. Used to make my own ultramuesli involving pistachios, pecans and berries too (which I could eat all day long) but it's just too expensive nowadays.

And a gallon of Assam/Breakfasty tea.

Homemade bread:
1 lb organic bread flour (50/50 white and wholemeal) - well actually it's 15oz as I added substituted 1oz for various seeds (see below)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1.5 teaspoons yeast, activated with half pint warm water and 1 teaspoon sugar
1 table spoon linseeds
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
beaten egg (from my chickens) wash and a sprinkle of sunflower seeds on top.

Served with homemade plum jam (plums from neighbour).

Texture - you can't taste it.  Not that I'm particularly convinced it makes much difference to the texture either....

Pre-breakfast conversation this morning:
"What's for breakfast?"
"I'm going to make some porridge but you can have something different if you want."
"Have we got any jaffa cakes?"
You'll have to try harder than that! (In fact I didn't make porridge, I had eggses all dlembcars up and he made himself a bowl of cereal).

Breakfast is usually a bowl of porridge made with water, with a teaspoon or two of honey stirred in.  A cup of tea beside it.

If I have anything else - for example, the Sainsbury's cereal I've been buying, or toast & honey - I should have my wrist slapped.

Just out of curiousity, do you make your porridge with water because you prefer the taste or because of an ethical avoidance of milk? Or maybe it's both or neither?
Title: Re: What did you have for breakfast?
Post by: clarion on February 16, 2012, 08:58:31 pm
Bit of both.  I used to use milk, but when I was a vegan I stopped, and realised the porridge tasted just as good.  Of course, I didn't have honey in it back then.  May come a time when I don't again.

Oh - and I should have my wrist slapped.  I had porridge and toast this morning :-[

Today's porridge, kindly made for me by my wife, had strawberries, blueberries and diced mango in it. Hmm. A bit sweet for my tastes. Blueberries are fine in porridge, as are raspberries, but strawberries and mango can consider themselves crossed off my list of acceptable porridge adjuncts.

Can you actually taste the olive oil or is it just for texture? We love bread soaked in olive oil - not sure it would go with plum jam though!
I have learned that it's good to use 60ml of olive oil (4tbs in 20th c. units) in wholemeal loaves(a bit under 1kg), with lots of seeds, in the breadmaker. It's not  for taste (try a different oil to see). "Texture" seems to be the wrong label for 'it's fine when it's freshly baked, but you should have put preservatives in it to stop it drying out after a couple of days'.

Fresh bread for breakfast is one of life's great pleasures.

But so is porridge.

Thanks! I always think bilberry sounds like a folksy variant on blueberry so asume it's the American version. (They grow a long way south of the subarctic though – they're abundant in the forests in southern Poland, which are the same latitude as southern England.)

Porridge microwaved with raisins already in. Recently I had been making it the night before, runnier than usual and covering with a plate until morning. The raisins are almost restored to grapeliness by then, sweet and bursty. This technique to save time for the earlier work routine.

It's only 'too many calories' if you don't adjust your next meal portions and timings downwards.

Enjoy your Danish, just have a smaller, later lunch and supper.

On Thurs I go for a fasted swim first thing and then treat myself to a full english, usually in Wetherspoons. Due to a forced change of swim pool, today I tried a local 'Sizzling Pub'. I thought the fry-up was better although served on a metal griddle plate which was quite small so things were piled up on top of each other. An advantage was that it all stayed warm whereas the Spoons fry-up which is served on a big plate is more spaced out and goes cool before I have finished it.
The 'Sizzling Pub' was empty. Spoons has a community of regulars to talk to.

A bacon & egg cob. I've had a bacon & egg cob at work every Friday for 15 years. It started very innocently, when a colleague suggested breakfast cobs one Friday. The next Friday I reciprocated. By the 3rd Friday Cob Club was official and there were rules (you don't talk about cob club, if it's your first time, you have to buy the cobs, etc).

When I left that job and came to my current employment in 2007 I instigated it here. Cob club has had as many as 8 members, and sometimes it's just me, but it always happens.

It doesn't have to be B&E; sausages, tomatoes, mushrooms, hash browns are all allowed. If you can get it inna cob, it's in.

Actually, it's such a broad church that porridge is allowed - and you don't have to have it inna cob.

I suspect that breakfast cobs, or some sort of extra breakfast indulgence on a Friday, might be a thing anyway. But I quite like the idea of it being a club. It helps to generate some cohesion in our team. We sometimes talk work, but we don't have to. However we always co-ordinate on Thursday evening and make sure that no-one who wants a cob is missed out.

We used to get similar when I toiled in the Nut Mines in the service of the Evil Squirrels, and actually paid for by the Evil Squirrels too.  When they made a lot of my cow-orkers redundant no-one told the person i/c cob ordering so for a couple of years there were enough for those of use who had not yet been Brutally Slain to have about three giant economy size sausage, egg and BACON rolls each :thumbsup:

When I worked in the Freezer in West Brom our breakfast treat was a BEST (Baconeggsausageandtomato) cob. Or was it a roll? Or a bap? I forget. I suspect it wasn't a cob because I don't think I heard them called cobs until I moved from the W Mids to the mysterious E Mids, but I can't for the life of me remember what they were called in the decadent west.

My usual oats & raisins in milk, orange juice, coffee.

Yesterday's breakfast was at Christchurch West's Premier Inn.
It was busy. I had muesli, dried fruit and orange juice.

Partner ordered porridge and a cooked breakfast - poached eggs, bubble & squeak, bacon hash brown.

He waited.

And waited.

And waited.

Partner was getting agitated and ANGRY.

I enquired and was told 'It's on its way.'

We waited.

And waited.

Porridge came with cooked breakfast over 45 minutes after initial order.

We had to check out of hotel and a train to catch.

Partner does not like having post-breakfast routines rushed.

Oh dear!

No breakfast yet as David has not made it downstairs as of 13.19.

Pretty standard breakfasts for us: porridge, fruit and tea for him, oats'n'raisins, orange juice & coffee for me but

supplemented with a Fox's Chunkie Chocolate Chunk Cookie each.

Hot Cross Buns will form part of 'lunch' as we are out of sliced bread.

I am a man of routine in that I have eggs for breakfast just about every day of the month although not when I am about to have my "Talent Talk" (I sh*t you not) with my line manager when I tend to have porridge....it would take too long to explain why! However, last evening CBH was looking for something in the food cupboard when she came across a box of weetabix. "Oh" she said: "you haven't opened these yet." I reply confirmed that I would have them for breakfast this morning.

Come this morning and being a man of my word, I opened the box and placed two in a bowl with a banana and some milk and noshed away. "Quite nice" I thought: "but not as nice as a fried egg sandwich."

Anyway, closing up the box up I noticed the sale by date..... May 2018  ;D

If I am not around later, you'll know why, although I expect an unopened box kept in a dry place will last for years....well at least I hope so!

How would Weetabix go off? Mould is the most obvious way and you'd have noticed that. It might have absorbed a bit of atmospheric moisture so not be at peek tastiness (matter of opinion) but that's all. A Someone Who Knows will be along shortly.

CBH has just called my breakfast this morning: "Gross."

I see nothing wrong with using the leftover lentil curry with spinach she made for our tea last night as the base for an omelette this AM..... with some blue cheese melted onto its top.

Lovely  ;D :o
I didn't know that "gross" meant "tasty, nutritious and efficient".  ;D

I nearly had an earwig for breakfast!

I used my inhaler as usual, only to get a mouthful of Dermaptera. Sneaky thing must have crawled in overnight. Luckily, I didn't actually inhale it fully. Spat it out and put it outside.

In a few years' time I'll probably be eating them by the bowlful...

I'm pretty sure I've read that earwigs contain some sort of noxious chemical, presumably against this very eventuality. But then, so do ants, and some species of those are surprisingly edible, while others really aren't, as I remember from various Indian kitchen infestations.

Amongst other things, a soft boiled egg. This being Japan, it wasn’t, as I suspected, a mistranslation of poached. It was served in its shell, and cold from the fridge. And it was very soft. Tasty but not to be repeated.

Pumpernickel!  Never thought I'd miss it, but the place we usually get it has been sold out every time we've been there for the last month.  The lot we now have is dark and moist, and tasted almost like black toffee.  Eaten straight out of the fridge with butter it's bloody wonderful.

Breakfast?

Meals no longer exist on Christmas day +3.

Just an endless succession of plates of bits and pieces, and the occasional chessboard.

Is it too early for a sherry or maybe a beer?

Bit strange having curry in the morning but enjoyable. Should've done some hashbrowns to go with it.
