Looks tasty. I havnt come across anything yet that i enjoy more then eggs benedict. Only when the cook or chef knows how to do a good hollandaise though. I hate going into a restaurant and ordering it and when i take the back of my fork across the sauce and taste it and i realise its from a package i get awfully dissapointed.... Yea,... nice traditional fresh eggs benny from a respectable place.

Porridge, cooked the authentic Scot's way then served with salt ans a dash of milk. On a day when I'm feel like comfort food, a well-fired breakfast roll filled with Larne sausage and liberal amounts of HP sauce!

Probably pho would be one I'd be happy to eat on most any day.

 

Chicken fried steak with hash browns probably comes in at second.

 

And third would be Eggs Benedict.

 

Mood certainly enters into it though.

I like more sleep for breakfast. Leave me along, get rid of all the stupid pita things that are gonna wake me up getting on my nerves. After that, I want good strong coffee and whatever is left-over from yesterday, if I liked what it was in the first place. I have no real correlation with time-of-day and what type of meal I should eat. I think I just enjoy good stuff at any given meal.

I enjoy a good breakfast burrito: dice the white onion, dice the red and green bell peppers, Julienne the tomato, fresh jalapeno pepper seeded. Shred some pepper or Monterrey Jack after the veggies are mixed with my eggs. Then I'll chop up some sausage and bacon. If I'm feeling really good or lucky, that burrito gets turned into a quesadilla.

1. Really good fluffy omlette -asparagus & parmesean flavored preferred, but will accept good spinach filling

2. Liege (Belgian) waffles

3 Good ole' bacon and scrambled eggs, toast from really good bread

4. Oatmeal - cinnamon/apple

My favorite is Eggs Sardou-

toasted english muffin topped with baby spinach and artichoke hearts sauteed in a little butter

topped with poached eggs and napped with hollandaise.

Then fresh cracked pepper on top and a dash of Tabasco on each one.

Delish

 

Though hardly anyone offers it at brunch places.

It's kind of a veggie version of Eggs Benedict- I never liked that one, but only because it's too hard to cut up and eat gracefully.

The Canadian bacon is too dense for the soft eggs, in my view.

 Fresh baked bisquets, 2 or 3, split thank you very much. A small tab of butter on each piece topped with 2,, fresh, over easy (that is the way I like them) eggs. Now comes the good part... sausage gravy with big chunks of sausage. No wait, add 2 sausage patties then add the sausage gravy.  Lots please, soak it down.

  Now add a tall glass of local fresh squeezed orange juice, add a couple ice cubes to cool it off a bit.  Now I need only 2 cups...no, 2 mugs (no idea why anyone drinks coffee in a tiny cup) of locally grown, roasted and ground coffee.  Now that breakfast is complete it is time to retreat to the hammock and take a short nap..

I just remembered a breakfast from a few years back.  This was when I was still doing Intermountain Vintage Racing out in Wendover, Utah.  Or Nevada, depending on which side of the line you are on.  Anyway sunday morning I got things at the race site under control and decided to sneak into one of the casinos to get some breakfast before it got busy.  One place had a breakfast buffet, the usual hard, dry eggs, really gooey oatmeal, bacon that has been under a heat lamp for a week or two, hash browns you could use to retread a tire, that sort of thing.

 

But this place had a treasure - a pan full of fresh strawberry blintzes.  They were really tasty!  But what surprised me was that I was the only one eating them!  Other diners would glance at them, then move on to the more familiar breakfast buffet crap.  I tried my best, but I couldn't quite eat the whole pan full myself.  Maybe this coming weekend I'll make my sweetheart some blintzes.

A nice Spanish omelet with potatoes, onions, red peeper and some chorizo.

post #14 of 120

Fresh squeezed orange juice.  Three double shots of excellent espresso.  Platter of perfect smoked whitefish, barbecued cod, and lox, with sliced red onions, black olives, and capers.  Marinated herring with sour cream and onions.  Cole slaw and potato salad.  Poppy seed and "all seed" bagels.  Cream cheese. 

 

Another double espresso with an egg-cream chaser.

Pretty much anything bready and anything that i can't usually get here. 

 

1. English muffins (Thomas' brand) - could eat them with butter and sometimes jam every day of my life for breakfast and never feel deprived.  With lots of american coffee with lots of milk in it.

 

2. Buttermilk Pancakes with butter and blueberry sauce (this is what i make every sunday - easy blueberry sauce, boil sugar and water till soft ball stage and then shut gas and dump in frozen blueberries, a grating of nutmeg

 

3. waffles will also do

 

4. plain bagels toasted - one half with butter to dunk in the coffee, the other half maybe with cream cheese

 

5. Cinnamon raisin rolls or bread

 

6. good corn muffins or blueberry muffins

 

then if anyone wants to throw in some american bacon and maybe some eggs fried on high heat so lacey underneath and then turned over for an instant to cook the mucous top surface and turn it white but leave the yolk runny to dip my cinnamon raisin toast into, i wouldn't mind that either.

waking up slow, coffee in bed, really good artisanal bread toasted, topped with melted extra sharp cheddar and west indian hot sauce, or a quesadilla with salsa or leftover fajitas(cold)....really cold tomato juice with horseradish, or actually a bloody mary if i'm not working.....maybe one little nibble of chocolate before heading back to bed!    i absolutely adore cold leftovers for breakfast, roasted chicken and lasagne being my all time favorites, followed by pizza with anchovies and shrimp cocktail...good strong black coffee always.

I'm not much of a big eater when it comes to breakfast - I'm a fan of a mixed bowl of fresh fruit, a few slices of cheese and a strong cup of coffee. At least during the week that is, come the weekend I love to go out for brunch (so not technically breakfast) but the sky is the limit... from the greasy spoon breakfast to a triple stack of yogurt pancakes with a fresh fruit compote ad usually I like to wash it all down with a chocolate milkshake... ya I know, I overindulge, but hey it's the weekend!

I LOVE eggs, fried tomato, hot buttered toast with smoked salmon! It is gorgeous. I have never been a fan of the typical cereal as I love hot food for breakfast...

post #22 of 120

I love eggs benedict but have run into too much disappointment ordering them at restaurants, even if the restaurant is good.  Sometimes the sauce is not good.  But most of the time my poached eggs reek of vinegar.  Come on people, we can't poach an egg in water anymore?  And is it too difficult to toast the english muffin?

Koukouvagia,

 

I love Eggs Benedict too.

 

For me a mediocre Hollandaise would be the biggest issue with Eggs Benedict.

 

Have nice wkend.

I am really honked.   I had to go to Cincinnati Friday and I really wanted to pick up some of those Wonderful Belgium Waffles from "A Taste of Belgium"

Well, the search engines listed Bob Evans as selling them.  I could not imagine it, so I called and asked, and the person I spoke to said "yes well sell them."  And I double checked saying, "You sell waffles from another establishment, not cooked there at your restaurant."  And I was told "Yes, we have a separate bakery where we sell cupcakes and things like that.  We sell the waffles from Taste of Belgium". 

 

 

Well, I planned around that, and when I got there, guess what?  No one in the whole store, including the manager had ever heard of it.   The bakery was there, but all they had were brownies and cupcakes.   Blah. So I came home empty handed.  

 

Taste of Belgium is a bakery started by a man from Belgium who imports his pearl sugar and has authentic equipment.   I am SO upset I was not able to buy any.   

 

It was after 5 PM by the time I was finished and I was pretty sure the downtown bakery was closed by then.  (Part of a city market)   They also have a restaurant, but could not find parking place.  Both locations are downtown, & it is very hard to find parking place to run in, buy and go back out.  I'll eat alone in a restaurant, but not  on a Friday evening.  I won't go on Friday evening with someone else, even.  

 

 

So I could not get my waffles.  :(

One of our favorites too. This morning we continued to enjoy cold smoked Nova lox I made this weekend. Smoked white fish is a favorite too

I still love eggs as morning meal

I ate a healthy slice of homemade quiche made with broccoli, green bean, corn, and ham this morning. But if I feel like a bum, I get some kettle corn a spoon a bowl and some milk.

6 strips of bacon, eggs over easy in the bacon fat, toast, and a cold beer. That was the typical breakfast at the lake on weekends and is still a favorite.

post #29 of 120

I have a tradition at this house that every Christmas day is homemade  Eggs Benedict. I even make the English Muffins. (not any where as good as Bay's though....)

 

But I would have to say that a toasted Pumpernickle bagel with Chive cream cheese, lox, or cold smoked salmon,  or vodka smoked salmon, or maple glazed salmon......

with red onions, capers, a big thick slice of garden tomato, and freshly ground black pepper.  Heaven!!!!

post #30 of 120

I'm easy  3 buttermilk pancakes, real maple syrup and butter. bacon or sausage or both , 2 sunnyside eggs, black  pepper and a good cup of coffee.
