One of my favorite breakfast foods is eggs.
Oh did I tell you I keep chickens? That was great, getting fresh eggs from the henhouse. My girls are too old to lay anymore tho.
When I was a kid we had an egg poacher. That was my favorite, poached eggs. However, one time after using it & out of a desire to be helpful I washed it…but I didnt know you weren’t supposed to immerse it, whoops. So that was the end of the egg poacher.
Nowadays I reckon my favorite way to have eggs is over easy.
So that’s that. How about you Sisters, do you like breakfast as much as I do??

Hi gals, I’m a cook. Now here a subject I can get behind. I love a full English, soft poached eggs, rare bacon from a sizzling frying pan, nice old English sausages, cooked in tinned tomatoes with onions and peppers, bit a of chilly, salt and pepper in there too. All that on lovely Morrisons bread. Abit of black pudding too if I can get my hands on it.

Okay, so I scoured the replies so far and I see no mention of grits and eggs. A Deep South favorite and one of mine as well. I’ve always enjoyed eggs over light mixed in with the grits and butter, stirred into a yellowish-orange gruel which I’m sure would disgust most ladies here, even the Southern ones. Finish that off with a café au lait and that should hold me ‘til lunch, 3 hours away!
And then there’s grits and grillades, which is said to have originated in New Orleans. Never appealed to me at. all. I’ve lived here all my life and have never met anyone who just loved grits and grillades. Must be the breakfast for the Uptown Girls. I grew up in the poor section of town.

I love breakfast, it’s honestly my favorite meal. Most days I’ll have cereal like “Honey Bunches of Oats”. Other times, I love having whole wheat toast, or a whole wheat English Muffin with strawberry jam. I also really love oatmeal, pancakes, and waffles. I love breakfast so much tbh, it always brings me such joy.

Before this Covid thing hit, several of us couples would go out to this sort of dive restaurant once a weekday morning and I’d order fried eggs with French toast and a side of bacon, with OJ (I mentioned elsewhere I don’t care for coffee). I was in heaven. For some time, other than that day I would just eat a simple breakfast, juice, bagel, my pills, but lately I’ve gone to fiber cereal. Ah, the thrill of getting on in years. But, it’s working just like it’s suppose to, so I’m happy, and I still indulge in French toast or pancakes occasionally (with maple syrup, butter, ahhhh). I do like hard boiled eggs as a midmorning or afternoon bite.

Love me some brekky. Bacon and eggs, hash browns, and warm rolls, my fave eggs are poached or…..soft boiled with finger toast!, if I’m extra ambitious. All of this is for weekends only anymore for health reasons. During the week its just healthy cereal, I used to pass on weekday breakfasts altogether but need food to go with the meds.

You can poach your eggs in the microwave. Use your microwave safe bowl and add water. Heat the water and break your eggs into the Hot water. Cover the bowl and microwave. The time depends on the water volume, how firm you like your poached eggs and the number of eggs. The microwave power makes a difference too in the cooking time. Enjoy!
I like an omelet or scrambled eggs.

I gotta say, I mentally tripped over the statement ‘My wife is currently on toast..’ a few times before I was able to put it together. It made me laugh, and for that: Thank-you 🙂

Hi Grace . Potted hough is shin of beef cooked for hours and hours. If you google it , you will see pictures of the finished product. It’s lovely on it’s own, on toast ,crackers, sandwiches, i like mine toasted under the grill ! hot and yummy. It’s also nice with a flavoured rice or chips. Supermarkets and butchers have it up beside us .It is equally at home in a mixed salad. Everyone has their own recipe, so tastes will vary .If you add it to the shopping list ,let me know what you think. Py xx.

Last nights left over mashies and veg thrown into a hot cast iron pan with the oil just bubbling, flip around a couple of times to get the outside nice and crispy with a big mug of nice hot strong tea, bloody lovely. Hear that lasses the geordie’s cummin oot in us. Off doon the pitch with the lads for a good football match ( real football, the round one you kick with your feet a lot) then off to the pub for a couple of pints. Life just’t doesn’t get any better.

Yes, I’m very much a breakfast girl, starting with a large cup of coffee, straight. But eggs and toast are menu items only on Saturday, and Sunday is Pancake Day – a family tradition going back at least 30 years. Weekdays, it’s a large (2 servings) bowl of cereal, with an extra cup of coffee, and sometimes and Eggo when I prepare my wife’s breakfast. Not a huge meal, but I enjoy a snack or two as I go through my day.

I have two favorites. I take a bagel,slice it in half and the cut a hole in the center. I put that in a greased fry pan,crack an egg in the center,and break it up with a fork. Cook it on one side then flip it over and sprinkle grated cheese on top. While the cheese is melting I toast the other half and the center piece and spread whipped cream cheese with chives on those.
My other is a 2 egg omelet with cheese and a variety of other things.

Hi Samantha, Yes I absolutely adore breakfast. Even though I’m retired, I usually get out of bed before 7 a.m. But I’m on an intermittent fasting lifestyle plan (to keep my girlish figure) so I don’t eat breakfast until 11 a.m. And I so enjoy it. Zero fat Greek yogurt with grapes, pineapple, and pomegranate thrown in for good measure. Plus natural grains toast (no butter) with natural peanut butter (no additives just peanuts) and a sliced banana on top. And sometimes a hard boiled egg. Oh and of coarse a large cup of tea, usually chai spice. Well now I’m getting hungry and it is only 9:25 a.m. I better go for a long walk to divert my thoughts away from food. Stay healthy, Hugs, Krista.

You’ve got me looking forward to Saturday Samantha. I don’t have much of an appetite early in the day, but I love having a big breakfast style meal early in the afternoon on weekends. Three eggs sunny side with olive oil & seasoning, Italian sausage or bacon, and pan fried potatoes. When we eat this we don’t need very much for supper that night, really keeps you satisfied and energized all day.

During the week I love my gruel. That is to say Scottish Jumbo rolled oats, microwaved, served with a good sprinkling of salt, laced with blueberries and cream. ( My wife’s Dad used to put it onto a tray, and when cold cut it up into slabs and keep it in the kitchen drawer. There’s naithing queerer nor fowk.)
On Saturdays its the Full English – Bacon, sausages, black pudding, eggs, mushrooms, beans, hash browns, toast and Yorkshire tea. More brunch than brekky (after my Countryfile walk with 2poos.)
On Sunday – a brace of poached eggs on toast (homemade bread of course). I have a poacher like a little pan filled with water and 4 cups to hold the eggs. Steamed for exactly 6 minutes. Perfectly soft.
Unusual breakfasts? The occasional Chicken vindaloo, or last night’s chilli or ragout or stew, or yesterdays chip shop chips reheated – yummy.
Once had fried mackerel and raspberries at 03:00 a.m, after a skin-full, in the garden of the Burnmoor Inn after the landlady’s son’s got in after a fishing trip. Oh! I forgot the marmite pickled onions, jam and baked beans in an eating contest at 02:30 a.m. (you guessed it – after a skin-full.) But that was long before I discovered I am a lady.

You brought back a special memory for me Stephanie, thank you. In my early 20s while in northern Spain I was woken up and told that we were all going to the local fiesta, it was about 9am and I was hung over after partying until about 4:30 am and not getting home till past 5. Head still pounding, off we went to the morning party. In a park at the center of it all food was being served, the air was thick with the smell of fish, “Let’s go eat” I was told, “Are you kidding me, we’re going to eat fish at 10am?”. It was some kind of tradition so we proceeded to eat sardines which had been cooked to perfection on charcoal BBQs and served up on large slices of crusty bread which absorbed the oil and pieces of sardine skin, there were no plates the bread played that roll ;). Nothing else was served except for barrels of white wine to wash all the deliciousness down, and as a nice side effect it stopped my head from pounding. It was one of the best meals of my life, and to top it off was perhaps the most memorable element of the whole experience. After eating a sardine feast with no utensils you can imaging the state of your hands, so as I searched for somewhere to wash them, my friend Raquel told me “No no, there’s no water you wash your hands with the wine” ??? Ok then I turned the spigot of the barrel and washed my hands with the flowing white wine, it was awesome! That was 35 years ago and I can’t remember a single thing I did the rest of that day, but that meal I can recall like it happened yesterday.

There was three of us camping in the pub garden, and the Landlady had taken all our money over the bar, so free grub was much appreciated. Raspberries picked from the garden, pan-fried mackerel so fresh it was almost still alive, washed down with … I don’t remember which beer… what’s not to like?
She had a pet goat – name escapes me now, it was nigh on fifty years ago. She came home one day from a shopping trip to Egremont. “Where’s the goat?” she asked her hubby, who was looking sheepish.
“In the freezer.”
(I could tell you some stories about Josie – she called me Curly – she was infamous all over the North of England. She lies now in an unmarked grave in Gosforth Churchyard. Nobody now remembers where.) Damn it.. welling up again…

I love breakfast! Day to day we alternate scrambled eggs on toast with some fruit, and a smoothie. Occasionally a pastry, sometimes the eggs on a croissant. For special occasions scrambled eggs smoked salmon and croissants. Plus coffee obvs… just in my second cup, fresh ground Mexican bio pour over.
Love and pastries

Can I tempt you with this breakfast recipe, then, Polly?
– in a small pan saute mushrooms in oil or butter
– add a good splash of cognac, (carefully, it’s not flambe) give it all a really good stir around
– add (not too much) double cream, another good stir, and simmer to reduce
– a splash of lemon juice
– spoon onto toast, add the remaining sauce to your taste. Enjoy.
I’ve just eaten it. As luck would have it, all the ingredients were to hand. I couldn’t resist.

I know it as ‘devilled mushrooms”, If you google it, most of the versions sound perfectly nice, but don’t involve alcohol (hic) . I changed my internet search engine recently, and I can’t find my original source any more.
