A Bang-Up Breakfast

I usually save the more involved breakfasts for my days off (and by days off I mean of course days on which I labour at home for free, as opposed to working for wages somewhere else). But today was a dull grey day, drippy and damp, calling for something more than the usual oatmeal and eggs.

No time to bake, so savoury was the way to go. Potatoes diced, oiled and spiced, and into the oven. A step out the front door for parsley to garnish the potatoes...

Where's the basil?

...AND basil and yellow grape tomatoes, to go with a remnant of feta from the fridge....

Dandy omelette filling

To the freezer for sausages from an award-winning butcher a few towns over, and back to the fridge for mushrooms from, alas! not the field, but the grocery store....

Soon to be sautéed and nutmeg'd
and parsley'd

And before you know it, a bang-up breakfast was on the table.

Mmmmm. Now tomorrow, I DO have the day off. What to make, what to make....

  1. That's what we say here. Thank god we are on vacation, now it's time to work.

    Your breakfast looks delicious. Those sausages ...

  2. What to make... just try and top this. Just try! I dare ya!

  3. PS: And anxious to see if you succeed!!!

  4. As it turns out, I made cinnamon-raisin-oatmeal scones, and scrambled eggs topped with cheese and salsa. Tasty, but not photo-worthy.

  5. Yum. I really want to come round to yours for breakfast!

  6. Hmmmm.....eggs and oatmeal are what I make when I feel like doing something special!! Your something special would only be done here on a holiday!! :) Everyday here is cereal...and maybe toast!!

    The words "award winning butcher" and sausage from him are very eye-catching!! What was it like?

    Sigh....the whole breakfast looks and sounds delicious!! It's definitely going to effect how much I enjoy my cereal today!! ;)


I love comments! Speak on....
