Lobster – It’s What’s For Breakfast

Neither Wende nor I ate both of the lobsters from yesterday's seafood dinner, so I had two tails in the fridge still in search of a meal. And I’ll bet you knew I just could not pass up an egg meal from at least one of them.

My initial plan was for an omelet, but thought I would have too much filling and went with a scramble instead. I sautéed some onion and red sweet pepper then added the chopped lobster and some chives. I would normally use just olive oil, but for the lobster, I added a couple of teaspoons of butter. I’ve yet to master it, but have been using every opportunity to flip the skillet as a way of turning its contents. This way I can walk by with something in the one hand and still give the contents a quick turn.

When the lobster was warm, I added the beaten eggs and a little grated cheese. After plating, I topped with a little more cheese and chopped chives and sided with a slice of toasted Tellico Grains sourdough.

This was another one of those barely edible, but I managed to choke it down meals :-).  While Bev vacationed, I believe I did pretty well fending for myself.

Welcome new followers.  Bev got home day before yesterday from 10 days in the caribbean, nicely tanned and looking pretty hot for a sixty something woman, but she has continually fussed about the cool weather - guess it doesn't take long to change your acclimation - it feels pretty good to me.

Have a great day and thanks for coming by.

  1. Lobster for breakfast! Fancy!

  2. Larry, I think that scramble looks a lot more appetizing than "barely edible" to me. If you turned your back on me, it would be gone.

    Glad Bev had a nice vacation and returned tanned and rested.

  3. reminds me of a Seinfeld episode - they look breathtaking

  4. As far away as you live from a grocery store, I'm always amazed that you have these things on hand to whip up a leftover meal. I'm always running for a pepper or such. But that's probably because a grocery store is 5 minutes away. I'd probably be more organized if I could only go weekly. Barely edible..yeah right, I bet you had that thing gone in less than 5 minutes.

  5. Lobster for that sounds like something I could get used to!

    I'm glad to hear that Bev had a good vacation!

  6. Talk about a breakfast of champions! Living large, Larry, with lobster for breakfast!! Looks delicious!
    Glad Bev made it back safely!!

  7. Oh yes! Does breakfast get any better? That is quite nice.

    Have a great weekend.

  8. I'd have lobster for breakfast. I'm sure you're happy to have Bev back, even if she's griping about the cooler weather. show her my snow pictures, and she'll calm down!

  9. This sounds much better that the peanut butter and jelly sandwich from last year :-). It's grand to hear that Bev had a great time. Take care. I hope you both have a wonderful weekend. Blessings...Mary

  10. Have you tried that exercise on Rouxbe using dried beans? It's a lot easier with dried beans than a skillet of different textures like this, lol.

    Lobster with eggs, reminds me of a certain Seinfeld episode!

  11. As always, a stellar use of leftovers!
