    Your Favorite Breakfast....

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Hello all.... I find myself often eating strange items for breakfast, but preferring this to "traditional" breakfast foods....

    I recently spruced up something traditioal and it got me all excited... Hot oatmeal with Yogurt mixed in. It's so yummy and very filling without laying heavily in the tummy.

    Others of my favorite include toast with a sweet potato spread on top, with a piece of grilled chicken and green beens (as a sandwich).

    Mornings when I'm going to work:
    eggs, bacon, hash browns, sausage, bread. Sometimes if I have time to turn on the deep fryer then I replace the sausage with fried chicken breast. If I have fresh avocados in the house I add a few slices.
    Mornings when I am off from work and I can go ride:
    Pasta with tomato sauce or meat sauce or egg sauce, and parmesan cheese on top.
    Ok, now I am hungry again...

    My favorite breakfasts are when we go to Ralph's Pretty Good Cafe in our little town, which we do about three times a week. Great latte, great croissants...
    We like it way better than going out to dinner, plus it's our chance to visit friends and neighbors. Everyone does table hopping at Ralph's...

    clafoutis aux pommes. It's like a big puffy apple pancake. It's very easy to make, and you can make it with cherries or pears, too. I like it with warm apricot marmelade. I can't forget my cup of Irish Breakfast tea with milk and sugar.

    I'm a big fan of hot cereal for breakfast.

    My typical breakfast is:

    1) a bowl of hot cereal (oatmeal or one of the Bob's Red Mill grain cereals like 5 Grain with Flaxseed or 10 grain) with sunflower seeds or toasted soynuts on top.
    2) 1/2 grapefruit
    3) cup of tea

    This is my breakfast probably 6 days out of 7. Sometimes I might have a bit of non-fat yogurt as well, or a different kind of fruit.

    I don't have a recipe; I just make it. I learned from my mother, who learned when she was an au-pair in France in the early 1960s. Here's what I do. It's a particularly good way to use up apples. You can also used cherries or pears. I've never tried the pears, but I bet it would be delicious.

    peel and cut the apples, however many you have. Saute them in a bit of butter until they are soft. You can add some cinnamon if you like. You should saute them in a cast iron skillet or Le Creuset type enamel cast iron dutch oven thing because the whole thing is going to go into the oven.

    make a batter from flour, milk, eggs (or egg substitute if you prefer), a pinch of salt, a bit of sugar, and vanilla. Since I don't have any vanilla right now, I used some whiskey and it was great. It's just for flavoring.

    Mix all that into a thin batter, the consistency of heavy cream.

    While all this is happening, set your oven to 450.

    When the apples are pretty soft, but not mushy, pour the batter over the apples and put the whole thing in the oven.

    Bake until it's puffy and toasty-brown on top. It depends on how much you make, but I think I typically bake it for about 30 minutes, but it depends.

    The puffiness will go down as it cools, but it's still really good. You can eat it while it's hot, or let it cool. Since I live alone, I always have leftovers for the next morning.

    It's very good with maple syrup, or warm apricot preserves or something like that. It would also be good with vanilla yogurt.

    Aint Doody, to you not heat it up, either? I just pour hot water over my old-fashioned oats, which doesn't really cook it. But I like it hot.

    I stir rolled oats into my yogurt and put fruit in it.
    But I don't eat it until I get to work, because I feel better that way.
