On most days for breakfast we have granola or sometimes oatmeal. I know it's time for something special when DH laments. " I'm going to get to get my granola going."This translates to me that DH needs attention.
I have some standby breakfast menus on those days. They include Belgian waffles with pecans, avocado toast with prosciutto, a cheese omelet, and on a really special day, eggs Benedict. Nothing too exciting if you've been doing the same things for years and years.
Lately, I've been listening to an Australian cooking show on TV, and they had a breakfast competition. I loved the ideas. One was corn fritters with maple-glazed bacon-and-eggs. Another was salmon and poached eggs with hollandaise sauce. Another was lamb meatballs with scrambled eggs. My favorite was chicken livers and mushrooms on toast. And why do avocados always have to be on toast? One of their dishes had avocados and red peppers sliced on top of scrambled eggs. And sne shredded her potatoes and cooked them in a waffle iron.
I haven't made crepes for ages and I meant to try Bobby Flay's lemon ricotta pancakes. I'm going to try them all this winter and look for even more unique breakfast menus.
On days I've fixed a large breakfast, I don't have much interest in fixing a big dinner. We usually just have soup from the freezer.
