I had a couple of leftover items in the frig and for breakfast, I decided to work toward using them up. Fortunately, the meal included three of my favorite things: eggs, potatoes, bacon (even though it was the Canadian version). So it was some leftover smoky paprika home fries & Canadian bacon both reheated in the microwave along with a couple of plain ole moist scrambled eggs. When I was a kid, one of my very favorite breakfast meals was Grandma's scrambled eggs (always moist and gently folded into big fluffy curds) and a piece of toast - and it's still a favorite.
It took me awhile, but I finally figured out the slit on the top piece of bacon is from the meat probe I used when smoking - looks like I did pretty good getting it in the middle.
I’ve decided I prefer boiled potatoes for home fries, as they are not as dry as these baked ones turned out to be.
Alex (the granddaughter) has one trait that I really wish I had. Not only is she a picky eater, she, also, just eats to live and as such, she’s nice and slim. Whereas I eat pretty big, frequently fattening breakfasts, she usually just has a bowl of cereal – although it’s something sweet (sweets are her weakness). We ran out of cereal, Fiber One bars, and pop tarts this week, so she went with her third fallback meal – cinnamon toast. I remember eating it regularly as a kid, to my great enjoyment. To make it quick and easy, we keep the sugar/cinnamon mixed in a shaker. I think we mixed it ¼ cup granulated sugar to 1 tsp ground cinnamon. She doesn’t like a lot of butter, so we just use enough to ensure the sugar/cinnamon sticks.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
You always make the most wonderful breakfasts, Big Dude. Whenever I see your Canadian bacon my mouth begins to water.ReplyDelete
My hubby only eats what I put in front of him. He rarely goes looking for food because he's bored or because he likes it. I try to keep lots of fruits - fresh and canned - around, to avoid the call of the sweets. Not gaining weight is a big struggle, but I lost about 15 pounds in November and December, before my surgery, because I couldn't walk, so I'm a happier camper this year. That said, I'd love your breakfast. Happy Memorial Day, Larry, Bev and Alex! Enjoy your dock.ReplyDelete
Yes---I wish I were more like Alex also... I have ALWAYS loved to eat... Wish I didn't!!!!! haReplyDelete
My husband's side of the family are rolling eyes...ridiculously picky. I've never seen anything like it...Once he was around "good" food he quickly learned to appreciate the fine art of cooking/eating. How long as Alex lived with you??? :-) I just eat small portions and exercise alot.ReplyDelete
She's a little scared of fat eh? Most young-uns are. I keep a shaker of cinnamon sugar right in a sprinkle top bottle on my counter all the time! Never know when you'll want a cinnamon toast snack. I have been on a potato kick here lately - made a small size regular potato salad couple days ago, and baked some potatoes today for a cold baked potato salad. I seem to be craving carbs lately, but after seeing the egg scramble, you have me wanting some eggs now.ReplyDelete
Hope you have a great weekend Larry!
Temp probes and injectors can leave their marks can't they?ReplyDelete
I'm with you on boiled potatoes are better for cooking a second time like that than baked ones.
Hope you have a great weekend Larry!ReplyDelete
