    Gwiv, tonight, the whole family gathered around the monitor to view your crisped stuffing and poached egg. All the ladies made very approving faces, and The Wife said, "That's what we should eat." And so we shall. So simple and satisfying-looking, and a fine way to make stuffing (which I otherwise find to be not so interesting) interesting.

    That reminds me of something similar I did earlier this week. Over the weekend, I'd had an urge for curry chips, so I made a chip shop style curry sauce and ate some with some steak fries, but had plenty left over. So one morning, in a sort of twist on "eggs in purgatory," I poached an egg in some of the leftover curry sauce and ate it over toast. It was great.

    Out of sheer self-interest, I'm reviving this thread ... :)

    As it turns out, I need to be more scrupulous and diligent about consuming a minimum 350 calorie-meal early in the day, i.e., breakfast. It has something to do with the "bio-availability" of a medication I take. I hadn't paid attention to side effects, but finally realized that if I took it after dinner, sleeplessness ensued. Not fun!

    While I don't mind cooking breakfast every few days, I don't want to labor over the stove every day, sometimes I just want to get on with things. But, have you ever tried to consume 350-calories worth of dry cereal or granola? (I can't do what I call "raw milk," and it's been so long since I've had same, the concept is just repulsive, even with all the alternatives available now.) My other food quirk is that I just don't like the taste of yogurt.

    Anyway, I have gotten some good ideas from this thread, but I was wondering what you might fix for your first meal of the day, every day, knowing its contents had to be at least 350 calories? (Apparently, it doesn't matter what food groups the calories come from; it's the total that counts.)

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    An classic egg McMuffin is roughly 300 calories: muffin, egg, Canadian bacon and slice of cheese. Add a beverage to this and you have your 350+ calories.

    I am one who doesn't really like breakfast food at breakfast. I might revisit leftovers from dinner the night before.

    I'm surprised this medication requires a minimum number of calories.

    Regards,
    Cathy2

    One of my go to breakfasts that will get you to 350 calories is oatmeal with granola mixed in (and maybe some raisins or banana), with a hard boiled egg or two. Quick, easy, and relatively healthy (just watch out for the granola as a lot of it can be way higher in calories than you might expect...I'm sure you don't want to go too far over your minimum).

    A great quick go-to breakfast: fill a greased or non-stick muffin tin so that the cups are 2/3 filled with eggs whipped with some milk (same as you would for scrambled eggs). Add any combo of diced canadian bacon, ham or turkey; crumbled sausage; cheddar, swiss, cottage, ricotta or feta cheese (or whatever you like); veggies (chopped spinach, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, etc.)--basically, anything you can put in an omelette. You can even add cooked pasta and buttered bread crumbs on top and make mac & cheese cups out of 'em. Once your cups are filled, into the oven on 350 for 20-30 minutes.

    There's about 70 calories in a large egg, 30 in an oz of cheese, 30 in an oz of chopped ham, etc. I don't really measure when I do this so not sure what fits into a typical muffin tin but it wouldn't be hard to measure these out to know what each is worth, calorie-wise, so that you know what makes up 350. And they are delicious, VERY simple to make and easily reheated in the microwave. And you can always supplement with a few slices of bacon :)

    If you don't want to cook, pita bread and hummus makes a great breakfast. Might have to add a drizzle of olive oil to get the calories. Another favorite breakfast of mine is cheese and crackers. Or a can of Progresso soup. Or cottage cheese with either fruit or veggies (surprising how good it is with celery and tomatoes, but perhaps hard to get 350 calories). Two granola bars if you are on the run.

    Cathy,

    That makes me think of cheese toast on an English muffin -- something I could fix at home quickly and would probably fit the caloric bill with a glass of OJ.

    As far as the calorie minimum, I have searched high and low for a better answer than "it's just more effective with food." My doctor has been adamant on the point, though, so I haven't tried taking it without consuming a meal first.

    I did recently find a forum (because there's a forum for everything) where I posed the question, and was sent to a page on WebMD I had not seen before that talked about this "bio-availability" concept. I am not a scientist or chemist, so I guess I am going to have to be satisfied with that level of knowledge, unless someone here knows about such things and can explain it further, which would actually be great.

    Today, I opted for a PB&J with a glass of juice. I like bagels, but where to buy good ones around Park Ridge? I ate one from DH's stash recently, that came from a bag purchased at Costco, and was amazed at how ... wrong it was, texture-wise.

    For years my standard breakfast was a Wege hard sourdough pretzel and a can of diet Dr. Pepper (I am not a big breakfast fan) I thought it was weird until I saw a picture with some article about Al Gore's lawyer in Bush v. Gore, which showed him eating the same thing for breakfast. Sadly, Dominick's turned into Safeway, and Wege pretzels in the big orange box disappeared from my life, and somehow Diet Dr. Pepper doesn't taste as good without those giant kernels of salt. My bucket list includes a trip to Hanover PA, the snack food capital of the world.

    New York Bagel and Bialy is just 4 miles or so due east of Park Ridge on Touhy (just across I 94). That would always be my first choice.

    I'll have to figure out a way to add that to my regular shopping routine -- the Costco bagel (cobranded with Einstein) was so bad that I would not care to eat another.

    I favor savory foods for breakfast and a balance of carbs and proteins.

    Today i made a wrap using multigrain flaxseed flatbread from Aldis with spicy guacamole, leftover pork tenderloin, and mixed greens. It was supposed to be my lunch, but I ended up having it for breakfast. Tasty, quick and no cooking required when you use leftovers. It has kept me full for the morning thus far.

    My new thing is the Mission tortilla's with 13g of fiber and 8g of carbs, loaded with veg refried black beans, and cheddar. Microwave, and add siracha and greens. Roll and eat. Low cal, high fiber and a good start to the day.

    Man, I'm glad I'm not the only one who eats "strangely" for breakfast. I can't stand the sweet stuff first thing in the morning, and I'd rather eat last night's leftovers.

    Because I don't eventually want to have to switch to tent sizes in the dress department, I've been doing a lot of "slow-carb" food lately. A firm favorite for a quick and easy breakfast has become a big old spinach salad, lots of tasty veggies, chopped avocado and a big bunch of crumbled bacon, dressed with a squeeze of lemon, salt and pepper. It's quick to throw together, too.

    I recently did a piece on quick low-carb breakfasts for Lifehack - maybe a few of those might help inspire a few new breakfast ideas? http://www.lifehack.org/articles/lifest ... r-day.html

    Years ago, on a trip to Britain, a friend over there introduced me to Pilchards on Toast with onions for breakfast. I am not a big breakfast fan, but I really enjoyed the dish. When I returned here, I found that (pre-Safeway) Dominick's sold pilchards in generic cans. Alas, when Safeway bought Dominick's , they discontinued carrying the line of generic foods (remember the white packages with stenciled letters?). Anyhow, I haven't seen pilchards since. I do, however, often eat those Latvian smoked sprats on rye toast for breakfast. They are very oily, so I have to thoroughly wash my hands and face and brush my teeth so I don't smell like the Baltic Sea at low tide for the rest of the day.

    My Dad has quite a stash of these sprats. He doesn't often finish a can in one swoop. He has learned to wrap the cans in three layers a plastic before storing. The cutting board smells of those sprats and requires several cleanings to dim the odor.

    I will quote your description to my Dad, because it really is some strong smelling stuff.
