Breakfast

Featured Posts

Now we love a full English as much as the next person but we can't eat one everyday.

So this morning we had a toasted wholemeal bagel with scrambled egg and dry cured bacon.

This is one of our current lighter weekend breakfast favourites.

So what are yours?

That would be improved by a sprinkling of West Indian hot pepper sauce, e.g. Dunn's River. It looks tempting, but I've given up fried breakfasts for Lent.

When I do allow myself a cookie brekkie (not as often as I used to, I had one every day for donkey's years but now it's perhaps once a fortnight), I enjoy a bacon and sliced mushrooms sandwich with - yes, you've guessed - a sprinkling of hot pepper sauce.

Its usualy full English for me but today it was bacon and mushroom on proper white bread, non of that gopping wholemeal rubbish. The missus has porridge and was hungry an hour later :rolleyes:

We have porridge often but,as you say, are hungry mid morning. 

I love cooked breakfast, especially in a greasy spoon/transport cafe. 

Bacon. Always try to buy thick cut. 'Normal' is far too thin. Just my thoughts.

Our bacon comes from a farm just at the back of our house. Free range home reared and dry cured. Can't beat it. Pigs are a bit small so you don't get as much as a commercially farmed one but the flavour is so deep. 

We can get it cut to whatever thickness we like. 1 and 1/4 whatever that works out at on the machine is what we prefer it at.

I am on a diet, will just have one bun, not a bagel as they are very calorific!

My porridge will keep me going for four hours, I start with a cup of organic oats, cook  and then add everything else, granola, honey, fruit, full fat milk, enough to fill the bowl.

We love a cooked breakfast at the weekend too, today it was grilled tomatoes, mushrooms, vegan sausages, baked beans and fried bread, washed down with proper coffee. Tomorrow it's maple pancakes - yum :D

I’m treating myself to a takeaway curry later, so breakfast tomorrow will be cold left overs. Lovely!

Must be. Don't fritter it away, eat slowly.

Knew that would push the buttons.... They are just nice! But on a more serious note as you asked, some people who wish to be vegetarian or vegan for a variety of reasons find the transition hard. So some products that are similar to their meat counterparts fill a gap. On a personal level I eat very few meat pretend products as I don't feel the need to, my diet is healthy with plenty of home cooked meals and organic stuff when I can afford it.

Since Nigella taught me how to poach properly, IT's "Eggs Ellis" for us.... basically 2 poached eggs on whatever bread (toasted)is left with a splash of hollandaise (out of a packet) and a bit of grated cheese on top - perhaps with a splash of ketchup on if I've not forgotten it before I've sat down.

Nor here in the Gardener's Cottage.  Cup of coffee and an apple.  Very occasionally Sunday brunch (but not today) - kipper with horseradish sauce the favourite.

Do Hudson boats have a sideboard for the kedgeree, kippers and kidneys on silver platters? :)

I apologise for my sloppy use of English. 

Correction:

We, the inhabitants of  Duer Towers, do not eat breakfast. 

We try to adhere to the idea of not eating before noon.

As today is Mother's Day I have succumbed to a piece of multi-seeded toast spread with salted Welsh butter and a scraping of locally produced (next door but one) honey. Courtesy of Daughter Dyer
