Favorite egg preparations for breakfast
I have a great source of farm eggs, and am looking for some new preparation ideas for breakfast ...
Lately I've been doing
a sprouted-grain English muffin half, toasted
topped with avocado slices
topped with a slice of cheese
topped with a poached egg
drizzled with good olive oil
freshly cracked white pepper
fleur de sel
grape tomatoes on the side
Ready to try something different ... ideas??
Nothing beats soft scrambled eggs for me....tomatoes and mushroom caps on the side are a nice garnish.
As for omelets.....I don't like too many items and I cannot stand browned eggs.....a soft fluffy omelet is preferred over a thin, hard, folded one. For me a Cream Cheese and Green Onion/Chive omelet is perfect.
btw....love avocado with eggs.....and finishing with a pat of real butter.
OMG, I cant believe you posted that. I keep watching and watching but I cannot get that down like Jack. He is a Master.
He uses a fork on a non sick pan. Some nubes say he cant cook then, I say he breaks the rules because he can. He was personal chef for the president of France, what are your credentials? Hmm.
A golden brown fritatada with sauted onions, red peppers, fresh spinach, sauted country ham or prochuitto, a good shreaded imported gruyere or aged goat cheese and fresh herbs like basil and thyme.
Over easy egg on top of crispy hash browns or home fries, and dashed with hot sauce.
I also like over easy eggs on a bed of garlicky sautéed greens.
This is the winning suggestion for me. I know I've had Mexican style eggs in tomato sauce a few times in the past. I don't remember plantains. It appears that there are a lot of different versions out there. this one seems to be the style most appealing to me:
For every day I love a simple spinach omelet. Occasionally with cheese but more often without.
Weekend treat at home would be good bread, sharp cheddar, sliced avocado and either a slice hard boiled or runny yolk fried egg.
Weekend treat when dining out would eggs bennie or eggs florentine.
Weekend treat when on the run would be an egg sandwich from Starbucks, DD or a bagel place depending on where my errands are taking me.
All the "out meals" are easily made at home but that rarely happens in our house.
Couple of other ideas for you:
Ham and cheese egg cups-line muffin tins with black forest ham, drop an egg in, top with whatever cheese your prefer and back until the egg is set to your liking.
Salsa egg cups- spray a ramekin with olive oil, cover bottom with salsa, top salsa with either a whole egg or if your prefer, whisked as for scrambled, top egg with sliced jalapeño and shredded cheddar. Microwave (if you want it quick) or bake until the eggs are set.
A simple toad-in-the-hole can be very satisfying.
Of course there is always quiches and frittatas…those combos are endless.
