Modified Bangers and Mash: leftover mashed potatoes, pan fried until it forms a golden crust on parts of it with your choice of breakfast links/patties or Italian sausage (or whatever the hell sausage you might have). Add a fried egg and toast if you'd like a heart attack on a plate. Some coffee or strong Irish Breakfast tea plus berries or your fruit of choice and you have a whole smorgasbord.

I like savory food and don't eat eggs, so sometimes I have hummus on saltines for breakfast.

Make some fluffy buttermilk biscuits and make and egg, cheese and crispy bacon sandwich. Butter that biscuit if you dare.

I also regularly make breakfast sandwiches on Thomas' English muffins with egg, cheese and a slice of ham or link of sausage.

I quite like a boiled egg on wholemeal toast with pepper and salt.

French toast is really nice but takes preparation. An omelette would be pretty good too.

In Europe they often give you salami and cheese with bread.

Fruit would be very healthy - a grapefruit or mixed prepared fruit.

If you have a Belgian waffle maker, Belgian-style yeast waffles.

Or, a bagel with cream cheese, smoked salmon, and red onion.

Usually it's oatmeal, with raisins, nuts, and hot milk. Sometimes it's breakfast tacos with eggs, salsa, and avocado, or a Dutch Baby with fruit, or maybe crepes with cheese and an egg, or a vegetarian fry-up with eggs, haloumi cheese, mushrooms, etc. If I'm out, it's fresh-baked bagels with cream cheese!

Yesterday I tried making Migas, a mexican breakfast dish with eggs, veggies, and fried tortillas. Good, but not earthshaking. And come to think of it, maybe I'll make crepes for dinner. The batter keeps for days.

Tomorrows breakfast for me is - Organic Sprouted Oatmeal, chia seeds, hemp seeds, ground flax seeds and a teaspoon of Fair Trade Organic Cacao Powder

Plus two boiled eggs

Do you soak the chia seeds first r18? i have hemp and flax but i don't know what to do with the chia...thought it was supposed to soak in water to reap its benefits.

R19- Soaking before eating is supposed to make grains and seeds more digestible. I've never soaked my chia seeds prior to eating them but I always soak my oatmeal overnight before cooking it the next day.

I always make sure to order a big pizza to have enough leftover for breakfast.

Or there are recipes out there for "breakfast pizza" that usually incorporate scrambled eggs.

Lasagna is another Italian dish I'll eat for breakfast.

by Anonymousreply 26January 16, 2023 5:05 AM

Baked eggs are a great way to use up leftovers. Butter a couple of ramekins and place a spoonful of something savory (sautéed mushroom, a quartered artichoke heart, a bit of cooked veggie, etc. -crumbled bacon or sausage if you're a meat eater) in the bottom. Break an egg or two into the ramekin. Pour a spoonful of cream on top, then season. Add a bit of grated cheese and some chopped fresh herb. Place in a pan of boiling water on the stove top, cover, and cook for 5-7 minutes or until the whites are set and the yolk is thick. Toast points optional.

I drain all the liquid out of a can of Rotel’s diced tomatoes and chilies (original) put it into a frying pan, warm it up, add scramble some eggs and move it around till it’s cooked. Top with couple of sliced kraft cheese. Ranch omelet. Delicious.

I like to make fried rice using leftover rice and veggies. Lots of toasted sesame oil and soy sauce, and then scramble some eggs in it.

Here's an odd one: I make Mrs. Cubbison's stuffing sometimes as a casserole. In the mornings I heat some up in a skillet, then pour over some beaten eggs and scramble it all. Lots of flavor!

Yes, R33 -But many make it with milk or other lower-fat options. I say go all out and use heavy cream because it's much richer and more satisfying.

Some filling ideas:

roasted tomato slices, shredded fresh basil, chunks of fresh mozzarella

chopped fresh asparagus (lightly fried in olive oil) and green onion with grated gruyere cheese

caramelized onions and sage derby cheese

Kroger's CarbMaster yogurt is an excellent choice for breakfast. It's only 60 cents and has only 70 calories. If I want something hot, I go for sugar-free Maple & Brown Sugar oatmeal from Walmart or Meijer. The Walmart brand is $1.68 for 8 packets, so only 21 cents for breakfast and it's only 100 calories.

Obviously, this won't be enough for fatties, but it's fine for me.

I learned how to make a Japanese rice omelette from the foodie movie "Tampopo"! Basically you make a French omelette, and fill it with leftover rice and maybe some vegetables, and squirt some ketchup on top. Surprisingly tasty!

It's winter now and I have a hot breakfast every day, but I don't cook during summer. It's yogurt with fruit and granola, cereal, or a sandwich. The South Americans eat sandwiches for breakfast because they're easy and don't require cooking, why shouldn't the rest of us!

Sorry, but I have to disagree with that.

The No. 1 ingredient of Kroger's CarbMaster yogurt is WATER, and it tastes like it.

(And not very good-tasting water, I might add.)

When my French boyfriend and I graduated from grad school, and it came time for us to go our separate ways (très triste), he invited me over to breakfast my last day in town. He made something very simple and rustic that he called a "Rouge et Noir." No cooking required. .. Served on an oblong plate, the "red" was fresh strawberries, the "black" was thick slices of pumpernickel bread, and in the middle was a slice of brie cheese.

There’s a restaurant by me that serves this dish called QEGr. It stands for quinoa, eggs and greens. It’s sautéed spinach on a bed of quinoa with a fried egg on top. The quinoa was not bland at all and it keeps you full for a few hours.

Lately I've become a big fan of those Flatout brand wraps. They're only 60 calories and stay fresh in fridge for quite a while without drying out.

My typical breakfast wrap is scrambled eggs and spinach cooked in olive oil along with some roasted red pepper strips, and crumbled feta (if I have some on hand).

Trying to use fewer eggs as a part of my breakfast repertoire. Any more ideas along this line?

by Anonymousreply 58January 17, 2023 1:14 PM

#1 Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup chia pudding, raspberries, blueberries, walnuts. To prepare chia pudding, add 4 tbsp seeds to 1 1/4 cups almond milk, sweeten if you like with a tbsp or 2 of honey, I use low sugar maple syrup. Refrigerate overnight.

#2 Scrambled eggs, or eggs over easy, 2 or 3 slices of canadian bacon. Grapefuit sections, with berries.

#3 Fritatta, 4-6 eggs, cheese, asparagus, roasted peppers, chopped scallions if you like. Sometimes I slice cooked potato, brown on both sides in a little olive oil, then pour in egg mixture with vegs, cook on stovetop a bit just to set eggs, finish in oven at 350 until cooked through. The potatoes form a delicious crust.

I had a good old-fashioned fry-up for one this morning! Fried egg, hash browns, fried mushrooms, fried halmoumi cheese instead of bacon or sausage because I'm vegetarian. Easy and delicious, and I could have added fried tomatoes or beans or onions if I felt like it.

Seriously, it's winter in the northern hemisphere, and we all want something hot and solid. Fry and egg and whatever else you have lying around, and call it decadence!

My “on vacation in an Airbnb” breakfast is D’Artagnan duck sausage, split in half and fried and then served on a toasted English muffin with mustard.

I wouldn’t do it because I’d be useless the rest of the day, but I think that a crisp white wine would pair well.

No eggs.

I had a friend I lived with for about 3 years long time ago. Was a very fun time for a while.

I had off from work, we were enjoying each others company on a sunny Saturday morning in her little dining room. I'll never forget. She made herself breakfast. Poured into a bowl a generous helping of old fashioned cornflakes using no milk. What did she use?


Ok. Well, it's not for everybody.

As for breakfast sandwiches? The only supermarket English muffins I will eat are Bays. They are in the refrigerator section. Thomas's English muffins are like cardboard.

YOu might also enjoy a ham or smoked turkey sandwich. It's east to get in a rut. Oatmeal, eggs pancakes, biscuits, waffles. Yogurt is good but not every day.

Chicken congee AKA jook--You have to make this the night before but the bonus is that you can also have it for lunch or dinner. It's a rice porridge but you can jazz it up with ginger, garlic, carrots, scallions, soy sauce, fish sauce, sriracha, scrambled egg, oyster sauce, toasted sesame oil, deep-fried shallots, chicken shreds, fried ground pork. The basics are chicken broth, water and stock.

Great if you have a bum tummy.
