I'm not going to lie to you guys, caramelising onions takes ages. I'm one of those people who can't eat immediately upon getting up, though, and the hour and a half or so that this takes is enough for me to work up an appetite.

Here's a pic of my breakfast:

tl;dr: use the oven and lots of butter.

Your options for this breakfast are:
  • sausages (meaty or veggie)
  • mushrooms
  • soft sliced onions
  • hash browns
  • black pudding
  • fresh tomatoes (not tinned, though)
  • baked beans
  • bacon (or facon for vegetarians)
  • fried bread
  • toast
  • fried eggs
this is how I do it )
I am aware that some people prefer scrambled eggs rather than fried for breakfast; that's not really practical with this breakfast, what with everything else that's going on, but you can check out a scrambled egg recipe here (good set of comments on that post too).

I used this challenge to make a decadent breakfast as a treat. Y'know, the kitties had to wish me a Happy Mother's Day somehow.

I did a spin on the traditional eggs benedict, using salmon instead of canadian bacon/ham and adding some other bits and bobs (some out of necessity). I hadn't tried it before but this pastrami-style smoked salmon looked yummy at TJ's - and BOY was it yummy.


 
 
I had intended to also use Trader Joe's crumpets but I really must stop buying them anymore. They have a tendency to quickly grow mold no matter how you store them. I'd only purchased them on Thursday and yep, little green spots already. I had a tube of buttermilk biscuit dough in the fridge that I'd intended to use on something else but it had to do - and it did very well. I did have a loaf of nice bread I purchased yesterday but with benedict, you need something more sturdy than soft bread.

Since I didn't purchase any asparagus for a side dish, I quick sauteed some thin sliced scallion and some baby spinach to put in between the poached eggs and the salmon. I used this recipe for blender hollandaise sauce, though either I used a smidge too much lemon juice or it could have used another yolk since it turned out thin. But the flavor was there so that's all that truly counts, right? 

Enough babbling, though, here was the result - isn't it pretty?

I'm definitely not going to be hungry for several hours *urp*

I went to the Visit Wakefield Wakey Tweetup last night and am a teeny bit delicate. If you have a hangover, you need protein and you need vitamins. Therefore Eggs In Purgatory is the way to go. Nigella's original version is here for those who want to compare and contrast.

I hope you enjoyed this trip through my hungover cooking abilities. The breakfast really was very good.

This is how my brain works: eggs are great for protein, but they are also bad for hearty/circulationy things because of their high nasty fat content. How can I make them better? I know! GARLIC!

Garlic Scrambled Eggs

Meal: Breakfast
Serves: One
Fatteningness: lots

Ingredients
  • Two eggs
  • Butter
  • One clove of garlic*
  • Black pepper
  • Something to serve the eggs on - toast is traditional, but I used potato waffles

Method
  • Finely (very finely) chop or crush the garlic
  • Slowly heat the butter in a saucepan; when it's stopped frothing add the garlic and take it off the heat so it cooks out really slowly
  • Put your bread/waffles in the toaster.
  • Break your eggs directly into the pan, put the pan back on the heat, and stir constantly with a wooden spoon
  • Grind the pepper into the cooking eggs
  • Keep stirring
  • Remove the pan from the heat about 30 seconds before the eggs are cooked; you don't want them overdone and they keep cooking in the pan.
  • Plate up your toast/waffles and put the eggs on top
  • Eat
  • Enjoy breathing all over your collegues all day
  • Enjoy farting eggy AND garlicky farts all night



* anybody who thinks I would ACTUALLY use a mere one clove of garlic in this has never met me. I generally use at least 3. At least.
