What is your favourite breakfast?

Good morning everyone,

This is my favourite breakfast, its a poached egg on home made gluten free bread toasted with sautéed cherry tomatoes and new potatoes.

Because its white bread I baked it a little longer too have a nice crust as I love crusty bread.

My question is if you have a favourite breakfast what is it?

Of course, that's not really my break-fast but what I typically consume at a time others are breakfasting.

But my typical carnivore-ish fast breaker seems out of step with culture of this part of HU.

A lovely breakfast there Jerry, particularly with homemade crusty bread. Your bread looks really yummy.😋😋

I rarely have breakfast now as it's not often I feel like eating. If I do feel like eating I tend to have a banana, sometimes with a homemade raw fruit bar as well.

Hope you're having a good day.

Alicia 👍🌈🌻🌸🌞

Thank you Alicia it’s interesting our eating habits as fruit sounds a great healthy option to me but I like toast. I hope that you enjoy your day now. 🌈👍😊

It's very interesting. I used to have breakfast all the time but since having quite a few issues with certain foods I kind of went off breakfast.

Your breakfast is very nutritious Jerry.👍🌈😊

Hi Jerry,

Your poached eggs and homemade gluten free bread with potatoes look wonderful for breakfast. They remind me of an egg in a hole ( you put eggs and get a slice or two of any bread you want and use a cup to cut the hole in the middle of the bread). You cook both together and it looks like a French toast type of meal, but looks different with the hole. Both are really good and don't take too long to cook. :-)

My favorite breakfast for eating at home is: 2 hard boiled eggs and a Greek yogurt. When we were able to go on trips and COVID wasn't around, I would eat either omelets/scrambled eggs, low carb. vegetables with different meats and a Greek yogurt since those items were gluten free on the road in most places we stayed in. :-)

Thank you Leah and I don’t have to limit carbs so your breakfast sounds perfect as does scrambled eggs or an omelette on the road. 👍😊

Thank you for that. :-) We may have to see when the next time to do egg in a hole will be done since it's been a while since the last one. :-)

I think I must have been a tomato plant in a past life. I’d have them for breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper 😻

Poached egg on baby spinach. Also porridge made with Quark and added fruit.Stay safe Jerry xx

JerryAdministrator in reply to kitchengardener2

Hi Alice, both of these sound really good breakfast choices to me and I especially like the sound of quark porridge with fruit as I bet the quark gives it a lovely flavour. You have a great day and keep safe now. 🌈😊

So hard to pick a favourite when you like so many With Jerry With my healthy hat on its small led salmon and scrambled egg. With my in need of a fry up it would be eggs bacon black pudding mushrooms and if I’m honest bubble and squeak but the latter has not been cor a long time. If I’m feeling rebellious it’s Jambalaya.

Jerry profile image
JerryAdministrator in reply to Dave1000

Hi Dave great choices here and I like bubble and squeak with breakfast sometimes and enjoy a fry up sometimes as healthy eating isn't austere eating its keeping the balance. Now the thought of Jambalaya sounds a delicious breakfast...👍

Dave1000 profile image
Dave1000 in reply to Jerry

I didn’t mean for the healthy option to sound like a penance😄. It’s one I would be happy to have any day. Jambalaya is an amazing one for a change. Also this time of year particularly, asparagus and poached eggs is a winner 👍

JerryAdministrator in reply to Dave1000

Hi Dave, you didn't its what is healthy for us and our needs. As too many people think that healthy eating is low fat low calorie.

When whole milk is far more nutritious than skimmed milk and a lot of people don't realise that a portion of potato chips cooked with good quality potatoes and good quality oil contains a lot more vitamin C weight for weight than apples. So if you don't have to worry about your weight chips can be part of a healthy diet! 👍

Yes Quark is lovely, I use it in place of yogurt, more protein so fills my tummy for longer.

I really love tomatoes on toast, very simple but delicious with a pinch of salt. I also love eggs - I'll do a fried egg on top of pesto toast with mushrooms, or an omelette with peas and cabbage. Everyone's meals sound fab!

Hey itselenax I also love tomatoes on toast especially baby plum tomatoes and cherry tomatoes. 🌈😊

Hello Jerry, My favourite breakfast is toast with half a mashed avocado on with poached egg and a cup/ mug of lemon and ginger tea.

Hi Biomet your favourite breakfast sounds really nice to me. 👍😊

Biomet in reply to Jerry

It is quite tasty. I have to keep an eye on the avocados just to make sure they don’t get too soft.

Jerry profile image
JerryAdministrator in reply to Biomet

That makes sense as you don’t want the avocado going mushy. It sounds healthy too. 😊

I broke my fast today with a warm salad of rare lamb steak cooked in rosemary and garlic on a bed of lettuce, cherry tomatoes and avocado, dressed with homemade mayonnaise.

I constructed it in my head while walking home through sleet. It lived up to my imagination. New favourite, I think.

🤔 no likes, no replies.

🤷‍♂️ Just as I expected.

Hey this sounds lovely as it’s a very interesting combination. 👍😊

If I had a choice it would be leftover trifle! I love poached eggs with smoked salmon and spinach on toast.

Hey that sounds good to me Callyv 👍😊

Your breakfast looks delicious Jerry! Especially your h/m bread!!My favourite is either broccoli and red pepper frittata, or baked eggs with fried mushrooms, vegan GF sausages and spinach salad 😋

JerryAdministrator in reply to Lilac-Angel

Hey thanks Lilac-Angel your choices sound scrumptious to me. 👍😊

I know now that what I make for my breakfast on most days has become quite the thing, and is called a frittata!When I was a child and we had loads of eggs, my mother used to use up left-over potato in a dish we called "eggandtatoe". Recently I have adapted it, as I eat very few potatoes, and I always cook a generous surplus of veg in the evening so that I can mix the leftovers with two eggs to fry for breakfast. Today's had cauliflower, leek, and mashed celeriac left from last night's tea, plus some sprouted beans and a little ground up linseed. I don't fiddle about with putting it under the grill to brown like frittata recipes tell you - I just turn it over in the frying pan! For tomorrow I have celeriac and cauliflower again, plus a tomato and some red pepper, which will go into the mixture raw so they just warm through as the egg cooks.
