    As requested by my Thai tea loving daughter, Sunday morning breakfast included Thai Tea muffins (topped by coconut streusel) with that frightening orange hue. They did actually taste like Thai Tea though!

    Those muffins look great. Nice of you to accommodate the little one. :)

    That looks delicious! I need more mortadella in my life :)

    My Friday workday breakfast was scrambled eggs with everything bagel seasoning on the last (finally) of a not-great batch of homemade English muffins. I'm glad the muffins are done!

    I used a recipe published on Christina Tosi's Milk Bar website:
    https://milkbarstore.com/blogs/christin ... sh-muffins

    I'm really interested in trying again with a different recipe. I've got three on my list: Tom Douglas, Fanny Farmer and Rose Beranbaum's (which was mentioned on the bread making thread). I'll probably try the Tom Douglas recipe first - I'm a big fan of his :)

    Gotcha. I like Tom Douglas, too. I'm having a moment with Claire Saffitz lately, so I might give her recipe a try, as well . . .

    That frittata looks awesome. I haven't made many - but I may have to change that! I like the idea of using up odds and ends for breakfast. I've got some cheese languishing that would probably be great with eggs.

    We started a busy Saturday with these multigrain pancakes - some with chocolate chips for the younger set. The ingredients included yogurt made by me (or cultured - does one 'make' yogurt?) and some Odlums Irish wholemeal flour that I'm trying to finish off.

    Image

    I like this recipe because it cooks up nice and light, but it's more substantial then your typical pancake.

    I'm hoping to try my hand at English muffins early next week - all the ingredients are in the house :)

    No pics, didn't want to offend anyone with my preferred browning of my omelet.

    Foraged morels (two hours of bushwhacking yielded only two greys and three half-free), asparagus, sauteed in butter. Two eggs, milk, s&p, garden chives. Accompanied by a piece of garlic naan from Tuesday's LTHNLG outing.

    Springtime on a plate.

    Haha, this sounds very parallel to my (still very early) morel season this year. I have one trusty spot that seems on the decline over the years that gave up three measly grays last week. I also spent a couple hours scouring a promising stand of shagbark hickory and left empty handed.

    My three grays and an uncharacteristically plump half free are destined for an omelet this morning with a clipping from my doted-over ramp patch in the woods behind my house.

    Good luck out there! Hoping the skimpy early season grays give way to an abundance of plump yellows in the next week or two.

    Horrible as it sounds, microwaving. That's what's recommended in the Taste of Home recipe, and the option available at Ms. R's workplace. The recipe had them wrapped in parchment before bagging, but zapping in parchment yielded too soggy results.

    Beautiful!

    Over here, we've just continued to empty the fridge into some breakfast sandwiches . . .

    Image
    Griddle Style
    This one, with eggs/mortadella (again)/alliums/cheese, started out as a scramble but once the cooking started, I decided to convert it into a sandwich in the style of an NY-style chopped cheese.

    Next day, basically more of the same . . .

    Omelet Style
    Just made a square cheese omelet, topped it with fried bologna (mortadella finally gone, yay!), more cheese, and served it on buttered toast.

    These breakfast sandwiches all look so good. I'm both impressed and jealous. I feel like I need to up my egg game (and the quality of my leftovers !!).

    Our family tradition is to have some sort of pastry Sunday mornings - I still bake something most weeks even though the number of people at breakfast is much smaller then it used to be.

    Today we had plum kuchen (I froze the plums last August and need to move them along):

    Your kuchen looks delicious! Thanks, for the kind comments. I wish I had time to do more baking but generally speaking, it's either cooking or baking. I rarely have time to do both.

    As for the breakfast sandwiches, I've been cranking them out lately because I've had an audience. And I love using up odds and ends, especially relatively overpriced deli meats. That said, I rarely can eat more than half of one of these concoctions. But having others here to snarf them down frees me up to sling them out with wild abandon! :lol:

    Saturday I had a craving for cornmeal waffles. We ate them with maple syrup and pear butter (like apple butter, but made with pears).

    Actually, when I think about it, I had a general craving for cornmeal. I made cornmeal waffles, Anadama bread and asked for a corndog on Sunday. :D

    Two things I love about this recipe - the oats are toasted before you use them which adds a lot to their flavor and you use extra oats to flour the counter when you shape them which helps keep them tender. When I saw that instruction I never thought it would work, but it does!
