Pasta Salad – It’s What’s For Breakfast

Remember Mika’s Mediterranean Pasta Salad I made the other day, it was very good and so I had to do try it for breakfast.  I made a patty of some of it and sauteed it in a little olive oil.  

 It was difficult to keep it together while flipping but I finally got it over, topped with some sharp cheddar, and added a lid to help melt the cheese.
I then plated it and quickly cooked an over easy-egg in the same pan and ended up with this very good breakfast.
I’d already tried the pasta salad warm while I was making it so I knew it was good that way and I had no doubt adding the cheese and egg would be a winner.

And for supper at the dock that night it was an all salad meal of more pasta salad with chipotle hot sauce, leftover bean salad from our recent Surf & Turf dinner party (it wasn't nearly as good leftover), and cottage cheese and tomato.

 It was a good meal for a hot summer day.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

  1. Well there you have it! Only our Larry could warm up pasta salad and top it with an egg. I have to admit I'm bleary eyed from just waking up and haven't had but a sip of coffee, but that title make me LOL.

  2. Larry, That's the most healthy day's worth of food I've seen you prepare and consume! I'm not sure that I could have bought into the pasta salad topped by an egg...but more power to you! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  3. You are so creative with a fried egg, Larry. And who but you would think to fry a patty of pasta salad? I love it! My mom used to serve sliced tomatoes topped with a scoop of cottage cheese all the time. It's one of my favorite sides.

  4. What a great idea for using up leftover pasta salad. You are a genius!

  5. Now that is one I wouldn't have thought of, fried pasta salad for breakfast. It's a great way to make sure those leftovers disappear.

  6. You certainly have taught me something new, Larry - - frying pasta salad. But I think it sounds awesome, especially with the egg on top! You two must really be ready for the day after your breakfasts!

  7. Pasta salad calls my name in the middle of the night! I must try this!!!

  8. That's awesome Larry! I have to say that I would never have thought of it but it looks great! I'll have to try it now that the boys are both getting ready to head to college I will probably have lots more leftovers with just Jimmy, Bay and me. ;)


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
