Sunday Breakfast

Recommended Posts

I eat breakfast every day, but during the week it's cold cereal, fruit, and juice. Once in a while on Sundays, I splurge and have a nice, big, hot breakfast.

I just finished 4 eggo waffles, two eggs, and six pieces of bacon. Feelin' fat and happy!

Does anyone else go all out for a weekend breakfast? What do you like to make?

Yeah, all out to McDonald's. The weather is nasty here today - rain and gloomy. Had a day planned at the dunes with my partner. Guess we'll just sit at home, play on the computer. He ate two egg McMuffins. I behaved and only had one, then broke down and bought a butter tart at a coffee shop. I think I will make a huge roast beef dinner and invite over some of our single friends who were probably out partying last night and could use a good meal.

Usually have Oatmeal on Saturdays, but Sundays end up being an Eggs, Bacon and Toast affair. Quite the pound packer! Edited by Cremazie

Depends on my mood. If I make a big breakfast, it usually is a Sunday. Sometimes if I have the forsight I prep some french toast Saturday night so it's nice and ready for cooking on Sunday. Sometimes waffles sound good, but our waffle iron is terrible. I'm never in the mood for pancakes. Never cared much for those. I'd have to dress them up a lot to make them appealing, and on Sundays I value simplicity. If I'm entertaining on a Sunday morning, the brunch will usually have most of the following: French Toast Bacon Omelettes (bacon, onion/chive, cheese, cilantro) or another type of egg Muffins Bagels Fruit Salad My sister usually helps though...makes things a little easier :) There's nothing better than a good breakfast...

I went to the Indian buffet for champagne brunch today. -lamb curry -sag (spinach curry) -tandoori chicken -whatever the vegetable of the day was (looked to be gooseneck squash) With naan bread on the side, bubbly to sip up, and gulab jamun for dessert. Knock none of it until you try it.

Breakfast is my favorite meal..usually just cereal, coffee and OJ (occasionally a bagel during the week), but we usually always go out on Sundays for breakfast..favorite places are a local place called 'Dozens'..or chains like 'Original Pancake House', 'The Egg and I'.. wish we had a Cracker Barrel close by or a Bob Evans (I miss going to those--used to always go to them when I lived in the Midwest). Bacon, sausage, pancakes, crepes...mmm..(or a baguette with ham and cheese--I loved eating those in Europe). My g/f and I spent the weekend in Aspen and had a great breakfast there yesterday.. the fall colors were great--perfect weekend for driving a convertible in the mountains (though it was down to 45 degrees at the top of Independence Pass--about 12k ft elevation).

Aw damnit now I'm hungry.

We haven't done much in the way of cooking since the hot water heater shit the bed, and we're not spending $800 to replace it to so can use it for 2 weeks before moving out. My prick of a father can enjoy it when he move in.

But anyway...I may just have to make something now...maybe eggs with some pepper jack and bacon....also if we have the good for french toast i may do that too...I love french toast

Since I'm usually at church from 7am-2pm on Sunday, I haven't made a good Sunday breakfast in a while.

I would usually hook up some waffles or pancakes (depends on who's eating, because the wife isn't too fond of waffles dry.gif), cheese eggs, turkey bacon or sausage, and maybe some hash browns (homemade if we have potatoes, frozen if we don't or if I'm making them). Wash it all down with some orange juice or apple juice.

Then don't move for a few hours. smile.gif

Had OJ, coffee, fruit, scrambled eggs, bacon and toast at a small local restaurant in Marathon, FL this morning. Normally, I eat cereal or a bagel at home during the week, but usually go out for a big breakfast on the weekends..

I dont get up in time to eat breakfast but I sure like the breakfast sausages that I get from Heans meats. Along with eggs and some hash browns. Cooking isnt a problem for me though I do like going to one of the local places for a full breakfast.

This morning I was surprised with Krispey Kreme. 'Twas a nice gesture, but someone forgot that I like the creme filled donuts, not the custard filled ones. She did get my mocha right, so I cannot complain too much. All in all, it was a pretty good breakfast.

What actually does it mean? I've been curious about it for 20-some odd years. Every time I open a fortune cookie and read the Chinese-English translation on the back of the fortune, I am disappointed... no "dim sum" translation as of yet.sad.gif

We had a late breakfast at about 10 am at Dennys this morning.. I had a tasty skillet dish w/ scrambled eggs, cheese, hash browns, bacon and sausage concoction with pancakes to roll it up in like burritos. Tasty. Dennys is a guilty pleasure once in a while.

I haven't been to a Cracker Barrel or Original Pancake House in a while, those were some of my favorite weekend breakfast places in Colorado..love the ham and biscuits at Cracker Barrel and the bacon, pancakes, crepes and french toast at the OPH. There is a great local place called Dozens with lots of different omlettes, etc in downtown Denver that I love.


During the week, it's usually OJ, a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios, a Starbucks doubleshot or 2, or a bagel, or occasionally, a bagel sandwich from Einsteins or Sticklers (excellent local sandwich shop in downtown Phoenix), or a breakfast burrito (used to work in a place in Denver where a local company brought in burritos a couple times a week--delicious).

Loosely translated its "tiny heart"

It actually is more akin to "touch the heart," or "piece of the heart."



And dachsunds and chihuahuas aren't even native to China.

Anyway, back to the real subject here...

Dim sum was awesome. Went with a couple bad Jews, and it was pretty much a pork and shellfish lovefest.

Started off with deep-fried tofu with scallions and spicy salt. Delicious. Perfect blend of crunchy/mushy and salty/savory.

Next up was the pork/shrimp wonton soup. Extra yummy.

Then we got inundated with har gow, scallop dumplings, shrimp salad dumplings, beef balls,* fish balls,* Chinese broccoli in oyster sauce, shrimp cheung fan, and lotus leaf sticky rice. The dumplings were a little gummy, but overall tasty.

We finished up with some shrimp eggrolls and egg custard tarts, and this ginormous feast came to a grand total of $61, split 5 ways.

It was funny, too, as another group of friends just happened to show up halfway through our meal and sat a few tables away. It was so much fun.

They have knock-offs though.

I wouldn't know. I've never really understood the kind of people who buy knockoffs...I mean if you're THAT desperate for "the look" you can't afford, you're just chasing the wrong things in life...or need to get a better-paying job.

Sounds good. Yesterday for lunch, I had Spicy California Roll, Spicy Tuna Roll and Spicy Salmon Roll, with house salad (what is that orange-colored dressing they put on there, it's good) and Miso Soup. I always leave the top off my pot of green tea, and the server looks at me funny for it... but those little pots are TOO efficient!

Those are typically some form of a soy ginger dressing, with the orange stuff being smelt caviar.

There's no oil in it, it has a sweet taste that seems to me to be something like orange and carrot. I taste no hint of soy or ginger.

Without seeing the dressing, I can't really say...but if it isn't a soy-ginger dressing, than it's probably a miso dressing. There could very well be orange or carrot in there, but I've never really seen that...and I'd be shocked if there weren't ginger in that dressing somewhere.

i used to not do breakfast, now my almost daily breakfast is a target of 250-300 calories in the form of either

a quaker 25% less sugar peanut butter chocolate granola bar and a caribou choclate mocha granola bar (250 cal total)
or a peanut butter sandwich on one slice of bread
or apple or banana and one granola bar or small PB sandwich.

i like oatmeal also but it makes ya gassy and you can't eat it on the road.

Lately I've really been loving Stonyfield Farm's full-fat "vanilla truffle" organic yogurt. It's so rich and creamy, almost like Coldstone ice cream, with decadent swirls of chocolate and vanilla... at the same time it's kinda tart, so it's not too heavy or overpowering.

It's the work week, so it was oatmeal cooked in the microwave, and a glass of grapefruit juice. I'll take a cup of store-brand, probiotic yogurt in my lunchbox to eat as a snack.

Two days ago I made a savory matzo brei. I put finely diced shrimp in it, so it wasn't exactly Jewish. Kikkoman tempura sauce concentrate, little sugar, garlic, diced shrimp, some white pepper all sauteed in a skillet. Matzo meal soaked in a bowl with water, some of the savory filling was added to the "batter," and then mixed. Add to skillet, flip like a pancake halfway through. Remaining filling served on top.

Nice. I made sweet potato pancakes for Thanksgiving, and it was surprisingly easy and tasty. For sure it's better than the canned stuff with marshmallows on top.

Stir fry shredded sweet potato and minced garlic with a nonstick pan, season with coarse salt and pepper, and when tender, flatten the sweet potatoes into a pancake, wait a few minutes, and then flip. No eggs or flour or squeezing needed; sweet potatoes are nowhere as wet as regular potatoes.

I made mine in the afternoon and reheated them in the oven. Serve with creme fraiche and chopped chives.

Niiiiiiice. Our sweet potato casserole we have for holidays isn't from a can, nor does it have marshmallow topping. That kinda stuff gets lumped with jello salad in my mind as SLOP from the 1950s that should never be revisited. Same with canned fruit cocktail... puke.gif


But yours sounds really good...might have to try that sometime, sans the teflon pan, though.

Very tasty.

Also, since I've gotten more health conscious, I read that this is one of the "Top 10" foods for your well-being (the sweet potato itself).

ocn's schizo healthy/guilty pleasure breakfast wrap:

one slice bacon, cut into bite size pieces before cooking

one 2-egg cup egg beaters

one slice jalapeno jack cheese

one medium whole wheat tortilla


cut up bacon and fry on medium. turn with tongs until crisp

without draining pan, pour in egg beaters over bacon pieces

break up slice of cheese, throw in pan

while filling mixture is cooking, warm tortilla for easy folding

when filling mixture is fully cooked, spoon out onto warm tortilla. fold top and bottom down onto mixture, then roll tortilla until mixture is fully enclosed

variation: add a bit of salsa to egg mixture in pan and cook together

Breakfast is usually lunch, however this week I did actually make breakfast for 2.

  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 cup or so (I usually eyeball it) Heavy Cream (this makes the eggs extra rich and fluffy)
  • 2 tsp Salt (I usually eyeball it)
  • 1 tbs Pepper (I usually eyeball it)
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 2-3 slices of cheese of your choice (I only had American this time)
  • 8 breakfast sausage links
  • and/pr 6 slices of bacon


Combine eggs, cream, salt, and pepper into large mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly.

Lightly grease pan with butter and turn heat on to medium.

Pour egg mixture into pan, add remaining butter.

Quickly, place sausage in microwave or pan cook it if desired.

While sausage cooks, stir egg mixture constantly, this is important to do as it cooks to prevent sticking/burning.

If you have bacon you can microwave it, or if you have one of those George Foreman grills (we do) turn it on and use it, cooks for about 2 minutes. I swear those grills were made for cooking bacon...the best bacon I've ever had came from using that grill. Crispy yet juicy...yum. Anyway...

Continue to stir egg mixture, as it cooks and becomes solid flip the egg mixture with whatever you are using to stir it. Cook it just until most of the liquid/juices are gone. Reduce heat to very low. Break up and mix in cheese until melted.

Place food on 2 plates and serve.

Nothing complex but very good IMHO.

If you like orange juice, nothing beats fresh squeezed. It's expensive to buy, however. It's nearly always worth it to buy your own oranges and squeeze them yourself.

Well, since you want to hear:

I saute some minced garlic and finely chopped onion in some extra virgin olive oil. When they are light brown, I add grated peccorino romano, some crushed red pepper, some fresh ground black pepper, chopped basil, and some oregano. I let that simmer. Then, combining with farfalle, I pour the oil mixture in, and then add cut up spicy Italian sausage which I bake.

The George Forman does do a great job with bacon plus it doesnt spatter all over the place like on a griddle. For me its eggs sunny side up and bacon and/or sausage links. And not just any bacon or sausage links. We have a really good local meat market that makes some of the best breakfast links and patties and bacon one can ever hope for.
