    we made nobu's marinated black cod and had a little luscious leftovers - so added leftover rice, fried up with an egg (mixed with mirin) and scallions = breakfast fried rice

    This morning, I felt a burning desire to get rid of some leftovers (which were piling up), so I decided on a big-ass frittata . . .

    Image
    Leftovers Frittata
    Leftover peppers & onions, sauteed mushrooms & charcoal-grilled chourico, plus jalapenos, fresnos, a massive amount of chives from our garden and some assorted cheeses.

    Toasted/buttered milk bread. Once it fully cools, I'll wrap up some individual wedges for easy grab & go throughout the week.

    Took advantage of some really nice leftover/house-made tortillas (and salsa) from Pollo Vagabundo and made a breakfast quesadilla . . .

    My in-laws refer to both tomato egg and tomato steak as "train food" because when tomatoes were becoming more widely available in China in the 1930's and 40's, they first encountered these dishes in train dining cars. They use the method of cooking down the tomato and then adding the egg rather than cooking the egg and removing it then cooking down the tomato and adding the egg back in. Sometimes when really good tomatoes are not available, a drop or two of Maggi can be added to the tomatoes in addition to adding Shaoxing to the eggs.

    In addition to making breakfast, I had two primary goals this morning:

    Use up some leftovers
    Try out a new lens (RF 28mm, f/2.8)

    So, a clean-out-the-fridge omelet . . .

    Image
    Leftovers Omelet & Toasted/Buttered Milk Bread
    Mostly stuff from our 4th of July meal, including my friend's bean dip, pimento cheese and Justin's ham. Also tossed some sauteed mushrooms and onions in there. Pretty darned tasty and my fridge is feeling better, too. :)

    Toasted/buttered caramelized onion bread (from Loaf Lounge) and bacon. In addition to a half-dozen very ripe homegrown tomatoes, the eggs contained fish sauce, soy sauce, black & white pepper, and were cooked in avocado oil.

    Hi Ron,
    How do you toast, butter and caramelize sliced bread?
    Thanks,

    LOL - that's a couple slices of the outstanding caramelized onion bread from Loaf Lounge that I toasted and buttered. I probably could have worded that better. :wink:

    Like a lot of us around here, I find the traditional Western breakfast canon to be a bit of a snooze. I love throwing an egg on it though – repurposed leftovers make for some of my favorite first meals 0f the day. A recent highlight was some egg noodles gently reheated in garlicky cream with sautéed hen of the woods (+ over easy egg, of course.)

    These concoctions tend to freak out my fam (people who claim that yogurt, bananas, and granola can make an actual meal.) I have one move that disgusts them like no other and Halloween morning was the perfect occasion – of course no one eats the crispy skin on salmon night, so I save it all for one of my favorite breakfasts – salmon skin fried rice with a poached egg!

    Sometimes, whether your want to eat it or not, you just feel compelled to make something. That was definitely the case for me today with this gargantuan breakfast sandwich, which could just as easily be called The Heartstopper! :lol:

    Mainly because of some ingredients I happened to have on hand, I just got it in my mind that I was going to make something like this and I knew I wasn't going to be able to stop thinking about making it until the job was done . . .

    Image
    Breakfast Sandwich
    That's homemade sausage and home-cured/smoked bacon, a cheese ('Merican, brick, munster, parm/romano) & sauteed onion omelet and some extra cheese to top it off on the outside of the bread (jalapeno-cheddar bread from Loaf Lounge). It started to lean over a couple of times while it was going but when it did, I just shoved everything back into alignment as best I could and kept going. In the end, it was much more stable than it was on the way there. As you can see, I was actually able to cut it and stack it. I ate about half of the smaller (top) half and it was really good. But I don't expect I'll make another one any time soon. I wrapped the remainder and will go at it again, piece by piece, over the next few days.

    While my wife eats bread with hot milk for breakfast, I need something heavier like leftovers from last night’s dinner that usually come with brown rice. I also prefer eating food straight from the fridge and pair it with hot black coffee.

    Fried (Romanian Kosher) bologna, over-easy eggs, American cheese and ParmReg on some rosemary polenta bread from Loaf Lounge.

    Definitely beats the yogurt & bran cereal I usually have. :D
