Hashtag, worldbuilding.

And we are in a nation now in alarming need of unity, and there is no higher bridge to build between individuals than breakfast. We all consume it. They are joy-hating mine-crawlers, and you can inform theyre evil due to the fact that they dont like breakfast.

Here, then, are some breakfast foods I make in the early morning for myself, my better half, my kid, or the numerous people I have trapped in my cellar. Ha ha ha just kidding I dont have individuals in my cellar. Theyre in the attic! Where theres a view!

This is not going to be one of those RECIPE BLOG POSTS where you first must endure a wall of text about the authors wonderful see to Tuscany where they satisfied Mime King Marcel Marceau and selected fresh herbs while concurrently making love to a secret admirer who then cooked them a frittata so fascinating it made them pregnant with a baby Iron Chef. Its likewise not going to be among the ones where I provide you with easy-to-gather component lists, due to the fact that I am a beast. Its mainly simply, hello, breakfast is excellent.

You can dress it up with avocado. Or a fried green tomato for that crispy tartness. Or a little maple syrup under the cheese for a hit of sweet taste. Or, or, or, sweet onion jam or some kinda mouthwatering chutney. I also like saying “chutney.” “Jammy Chutney.” Thats my spy name.

Frying pan on medium-high heat. Toss in there the OIL OF YOUR CHOICE, which here I advise either unrefined coconut oil (nice coconutty taste) or butter. Why butter? Because butter.

Onto the toast goes a bed of arugula.

The apples need an unique shout-out, I think, due to the fact that the topping I make is especially good on all kinds of things– cook the apples in cinnamon and butter, then include orange juice, maple syrup, and minimize down till syrupy. Get something thatll hold up, however that has a natural tartness.

Upon that goes cheese.

However, I discover the second method a bit more gratifying.

Cheesy Eggs And Rice.

Oatmeal is truly great if you prepare it in oatmilk.

My kid is generally not a fickle eater. Hell eat … nnnyeah, mostly anything. His very first time eating calamari, we put the plate down and he didnt even ask what it was, he simply started eating it. We resembled, “You know thats squid, right?” And he shrugged and kept going. Hes an excellent eater. One of his preferred foods is Brussels sprouts (my recipe for those little satanic force cabbages here). Long as something isnt too hot, hes in.

This is the Dutch Baby recipe I use– its Alton Browns. Its very good. I want it and the waffle dish above gave ingredients by weight (especially because his dish here lists “digital scale” as useful equipment however offers you no weight measurements).

( I indicate, Im still going to consume cheese. I imply, clearly, JFC.).

He enjoyed eggs. He went over another kids house, and the Dad was both vegan and an asshole, and the veganism isnt the issue, however the asshole part certainly is, and somehow our kid emerged from that experience disliking eggs. He wont eat eggs any longer.

Our Chinese food location provides you a whole container of rice for every dish you order, which normally indicates we end up with adequate remaining rice to choke a bear. I do not desire to choke a bear. I like bears. So, instead I try to use the rice in a range of ways, chief amongst them is fried rice, which I just mistyped as “buddy rice.” Which sounds nice up until you realize it might be a Soylent Green thing? Whatever. For breakfast, I do a various thing with the rice, and this is that different thing–.

If you like eggs, unlike my anarchist boy, prepare one to your preference and put it on prior to the “slap halves” phase of the sandwich construction.

When toasted, you sprinkle a little maple syrup on the within of the one half.

I dunno. Fuck around with it and report back.

( This is fast turning into my Magical Visit to Tuscany, isnt it?).

While thats cooking, lay a slice or 2– separated– of melty cheese atop the rice. Again, I will recommend to you Cooper Cheese for this important task.

This ones easy. Even apparent. Its a favorite here. I make my own sourdough toast– er, I think I actually make the bread since the toast part is constantly on us to make– so, okay, great, I make BREAD, you pedants, and after that I TOAST that bread.

( My grandma, Mom-Mom, would not consume cheese, though she d consume anything else. Possibly not eating cheese is great.).

Then, I fry two eggs, flip, and burst the yolks at the end, and yet the jammy (theres that word again) yolks expanded like a blanket of goodness over the whites.

Its wonderful.

Take a bunch of rice and dump it in. One FIST OF RICE. The objective of this is you desire the rice to get cooked on the bottom however stay somewhat pillowy-ricey on top.

I know, that seems like too much oats. Insert Xzibit meme about putting oats in oats. However believe me, its perfect. Its an entire oat galaxy, an OATIVERSE, if you will. An OATPOCALYPSE. Excellent too if you toss some berries on there, some cacao nibs, some walnuts, a salamander egg, a cursed chicken toe, ash from a burned Bible page, and ha ha no this isnt a wicked spell its simply a “recipe” its “great” dont “ask concerns” you fucking apostate.


Broken Yolk On Homemade Toast.

I dont make pancakes, my partner does– I do 90% of the cooking, but she makes a few things I merely can not handle to do well, like pancakes and meatballs. This is her dish:.

( Note, this image is sort of a combination of this and a breakfast sandwich.).

Season accordingly (salt, pepper, and for me, more of that Penzeys Fox Point). Then utilize a painters trowel to shovel it into your unhinged maw.

Now, to the eggs.

( Oh well. This content is complimentary!).

To be clear, Im rather specific there are Chinese or Korean breakfasts that are comparable to this– Im not trying to appropriate or claim some kind of culinary genius. I simply put things I like together and they taste great and hopefully they taste excellent to you, too.

So, maple syrup, then meat, then cheese. Cheese on both halves, btw.

I make 2 nests– 2 egg craters, you may state– in the rice. Like a fish swooping out the riverbed to lay its future fishchildren. Then put in a bit more fat in those cooking rice pockets, and break an egg into each. Let it cook a bit, then flip each yolk. Once they firm up a little bit, so that theyre beginning to get jammy (jammy is among those food words that I find attracting when utilized appropriately, so like, with caramelized onions, or egg yolks, but not, state, tuna fish). Break the jammy yolks, stir them into the rice, and serve.

Toast an English muffin. Bays is our brand name, in part because I hate the routine of having to fork-open the forkin motherforker Thomas English muffins version.

This is the waffle dish I use: Aretha Frankensteins Waffles of Insane Greatness. Before now a great deal of the waffle dishes I used required separating out the egg whites and whipping them before folding them in individually, however no one has time for that nonsense. What am I, caught in my house during a global pandemic? Sheesh. This recipe gets the very same outcome but … doesnt need that action, therefore I utilize this with a Belgian wafflemaker. Keep in mind, it says “serves 2 to 4,” which number for me is, “it serves 2.25” individuals, so if you have a quarter-human in your home, terrific. Otherwise, double the dish.

POINT IS, removing eggs from breakfast choices was difficult initially because, truthfully, breakfast is a world developed on eggs, a minimum of in our home. Even more, the kidlet still wanted a breakfast sandwich to consume, too, and one that did not include eggs.

Also, in the name, I understand this is not a correct British butty, so I have actually called it a Buddy so as not to wrongly proper British food. You ought to read that prior sentence as sarcastically as you like.

The cheese ought to be melty. The rice will be both soft and chewy. The eggs will integrate throughout, a sort of ricey-eggy-custardy pillow. I use a little sweet soy sauce (buy it different or make your own with soy, mirin, bit of vinegar, bit of sugar, garlic, ginger). I in some cases utilize Penzeys Fox Point or Shallot Pepper too to finish. You can do other things to dress this up, too: start with onion, garlic, ginger. Possibly add in a dash of sesame oil. Greens work out here, too, like spinach or bok choy. Shit, this would most likely taste good speckled with yard clippings and eaten out of an old shoebox.

Slap halves together, put into face, send me cash to pay me for the pleasure I have given you.

So, thats 270g AP flour.

Then: some way of meat goes upon it. Bacon is fantastic, however so are sausage patties– the Beyond Sausage patties are good, too, if you want something plant-based.

Onto the arugula go the eggs.

The best cheese for this is Cooper Cheese, which is the biggest meltiest cheese understood to man, and anybody who informs you various can get fucked. Ive ranted about this before, however get shut of any judgment you might have about American cheese and how its not truly “cheese” and how its a “cheese product,” and STOW YOUR CHEESE CLASSISM, JUDGEY MCJUDGEYBUTT.

The erased stuff in the dish is her old version– shes been developing this over a few years now. These are the very best pancakes I have actually ever eaten, with the exception of perhaps the pancake I had at the Mad Batter, in Cape May, NJ.

I dont pour straight maple syrup on any of these, however rather, make a mix of melted butter and maple syrup blended together right prior to pouring. Its phenomenal.
