I’ve never had vanilla milk. You just blew my mind.
Yogurt is excellent on pepper juice burns. There are probiotics in certain Greek yogurts that balance the flora and fauna in your stomach to such a degree that it stimulates mental health, in some cases curing depression and anxiety.
I have a fickle relationship with cereal and I don’t eat it much. It’s quick in a pinch but it’s not filling and makes me feel like I’m digesting cardboard. But there is nothing more satisfying than pouring the perfect milk to cereal ratio. I also think drinking the leftover milk in a bowl is nauseating. Always go with whole milk, it’s the tastiest and healthiest choice, unless you’re vegan, and in that case I’d go with almond milk. I like cookie crisps, peanut butter puffs, and raisin bran.
Cilantro is called coriander in Australia. Some people’s genetic makeup causes cilantro to taste like soap or chalk. I’ve been told that if you eat with the hand that is not your dominant one, food will taste differently. It has something to do with creating new electrical synapses in the brain, causing you to process taste differently.
You’re talking about toad in the hole, also known as eggy in a basket. I’d suggest using a thick, hearty bread so it doesn’t get all floppy and wet. Start out with medium heat but turn it to low when you flip the bread. And when you make the hole to crack the egg into, use a cookie cutter instead of tearing with your fingers. The cutter will crimp the bread and make a solid hold for the egg.
Photos still down. Listening to Spice-1 and drinking gas station coffee. I can talk breakfast all day, I’m still takin emails. Come on.
Another great thing to make during breakfast is a roux. A roux is equal parts butter or fat and flour. It’s very southern. You can use it as a soup starter, throw it in a biscuit recipe, or sauté vegetables in it. Once you’re done making bacon, wait for the fat to cool, but not congeal. Pour it into a canning jar through a strainer and then add the flour. Stick it in the fridge and look forward to the next time you’ll be making breakfast!
If you sliced the bread and put it in the oven with Parmesan and white cheddar while you cook the bacon. The bread will be crispy, so it won’t get soggy during your meal. Perfect for a breakfast sandwich, or for sopping. Also, for the beer lovers, a great breakfast beer is Boddingtons. My father’s beer wisdom is something I live by; “it’s not what time you start drinking, it’s how long you’ve been up.”
Remember when you go to grab the creamer in the coffee condiment tier that the original, vanilla, and hazelnut flavors all have similar colored tops. Don’t mix them up, check twice. Also, if you microwave the doughnut for 40 seconds, it will taste less stale.
My hot sauces preferences:
The best one out there is Louisiana Swamp Scum. The label is great, the sauce is green, and it’s a good taste without being overwhelming.
I also just discovered El Yucateco Xxxtra Hot Sauce. It’s killer and exxxtremely spicy, so watch out.
If you want to do fried chicken on biscuits, Frank’s Red Hot is pretty choice, but I wouldn’t recommend it on just eggs.
I’ve also been buying dried chilies at the Mexican produce market. You can make your own hot sauce by throwing a few of those (de-stemmed -and cored) in the blender with a little bit of water and salt.
You must have to buy the biggest tortillas out there. I like flour tortillas for breakfast, unless you do a spicy shrimp scramble, and then I prefer corn. Another great thing in the morning is to dump half a packet of Swiss Miss in your coffee. It makes it creamy, although black coffee can’t be beat.
Cooked IN an avocado? What is this black magic? I hope this breakfast comes with coffee and some hot sauce. And for the record, sriracha sauce is over rated.
Put a spoonful of condensed milk in your americano. It’s the best thing you’ll ever taste in your life. I also recommend dunking the almond croissant in said coffee. It’s baller.
No matter what you do, never substitute orange juice for milk in your cereal. It’s one of the more disgusting things you could do to yourself. I highly recommend buying Cookie Crisps in the future, they’re good even without milk. Did you try the freezer? I can almost guarantee you there’s something breakfast worthy in there you just forgot about.
If you drink two pots of oolong tea a day it helps you feel more energized and it drastically improves your skin. It’s an all around healthy and delicious choice. Raspberry jam is the best kind of filling in jelly doughnuts. I think I’d like to try blueberry for a change, though.
Try tahini and honey on toast, it mixes things up a bit. And if you’re ever craving eggs, crack one over low heat in butter and cover until the whites aren’t clear anymore. It’s not eggs benedict but its a damn tasty egg. When I moved out of a boyfriends house he kept the cast iron and the knives, so I couldn’t cook steak and eggs. Or cut anything, for that matter.
My Internet is down so I can’t post photos of breakfast every day. In solidarity, I’ll be skipping breakfast myself, and instead I’ll be accepting emails where YOU tell ME what your breakfast is every day. Anon breakfasts welcome.
