Breakfast


I'm finding the more pregnant I get, the more breakfast I want! I could almost not care what I eat for other meals, but I want a nice healthy breakfast every morning. I've been making a lot of fun things since I usually wake up before Willa and Chad and have the time to put something together. I like to make buttermilk pancakes, I tried (and loved!) crepes, we do a lot of the usual American fare - eggs, sausage, hash browns, oatmeal, grits, etc. Sometimes it's just simple yogurt, granola and fruit.

I cook eggs in a million ways - poached (eggs benedict), scrambled, fried, soft boiled, deviled, quiche, frittata, etc.

But I'm looking for new ideas! I know I can have "anything" for breakfast, but I guess I'm just not interested in salad and pork chops at 8 AM!

I'm also wanting something more than the egg and bread type breakfast. Something unusual...

What's your favorite breakfast? The fancier the better! emoticon

Re: Breakfast


How about making up bread [sign in to see URL] day before. Hubby hates raisins, so I add tiny diced apples and sometimes chopped pecans to the Bread Pudding before baking. Then the next morning, slice it slightly [sign in to see URL] 1 to 2 inches thick and add a bit of butter to a skillet and fry the slices, till warmed and slightly crunchy on the outside, like French toast... Sprinkle with powered sugar or caramel sauce or even syrup. emoticon

Re: Breakfast


My breakfast is very boring: An apple, diced with organic yoghurt, and some almond slices sprinkled over it.

I then take a cut up carrot, some fatback (yes, sounds gross, but I'm actually LOSING weight since I started eating it), a banana and more yoghurt to work, for a second breakfast. Sometimes, I feel like a hobbit!

Re: Breakfast


Texas, one of my DH's cousins posted a thing on FB that I thought was really neat. Take 2 eggs, break them into a gallon size Ziplock bag, shake [sign in to see URL] add whatever ingredients you want (onion, tomato, herbs, ham, [sign in to see URL]). Force out as much air as possible, zipping the bag [sign in to see URL] the bag into a pot of roiling, boiling water and let it cook for 13 [sign in to see URL] more! Remove, open, slide out your baggie omelet and there's breakfast. You can put several bags into one pot if your pot is large [sign in to see URL] if everyone has something different, write each person's name on their bag with a marker/pen. It's not fried, so it's healthier, and you can add whatever you wish to your bag. Be sure to mix everything good before putting it in the boiling water, by shaking the bag up well. And yes, the water needs to boil BEFORE adding the bag.

I just got some bags to try [sign in to see URL] not done it yet, but our cousin has, and she says it's so [sign in to see URL] minimal clean-up and delicious! And, this is something Willa can do bits of for herself. She can add her own stuff to her bag, then let Mommy put it in the water for [sign in to see URL] she'd be helping to make her own breakfast! Chad can do the same.

Re: Breakfast


Nothing beats the English breakfast around here. Baked beans are involved somehow, I never claimed to understand it but they do taste good with eggs, bacon and toast.

Queeny, your bread pudding sounds divine! I might be drooling a little right now..

Re: Breakfast


Firle, how do you fix the fatback? I like fatback in my pinto or green beans, but I don't use it much.

Rebecca, I love baked beans, so eating them for breakfast wouldn't be an issue for [sign in to see URL]. Just not something I'd do very often.

Re: Breakfast


I LOVE a full english breakfast! Not sure why I haven't done that lately! You can't get baked beans here as good as they have in England (they are different than the stuff like Bush's baked beans) but I like the American version as well.

Queeny, I've only had one bread pudding I liked - at a Cajun restaurant in central Mexico! I may have to give some recipes a try to see what I like best. I usually find the pudding too sweet, too dry or has too many nuts/fruits in it. I can probably adapt something for my tastes though!

I did a fun breakfast the other morning that I found on Martha Stewart. I had made some less than stellar macaroni and cheese the other day and we were having a hard time going through all the leftovers (I thought I'd make a huge batch since it's so easy to eat tons of that stuff!). The breakfast recipe was for pasta frittata - take any leftover pasta with sauce, add a bunch of cheese and eggs and cook like a frittata. Since this was already cheesy, I just added the eggs. It was delicious! And of course, a big fruit salad. Yum!

Re: Breakfast


[sign in to see URL], that looks SO yummy! I LOVE mac n cheese, and that frittata really looks good. How much mac n cheese, and how many eggs? I bet it would be good with some cut up ham/bacon in it, too! [sign in to see URL] meat.

That fruit looks really good, too. We're finally getting some good looking fresh fruit in around here.

Re: Breakfast


the official recipe. It's basically just 3 cups of pasta to 3 large eggs, with about an additional 1/2 cup of cheese if needed. I stuck in an extra eggs since the ones I used seemed on the small side. And like I said, I just used the pasta and the eggs and didn't add any [sign in to see URL] didn't need any more! But I like the idea of doing this with a leftover tomato sauce pasta too.
