More From the Fantastic Four


My dream breakfast would probably be a few rounds of food.  And coffee.  And maybe coke.  Sometimes a bloody mary.  Never a mimosa. (Unless it’s from freshly squeezed orange juice.)

One would be an over-medium fried egg with swiss cheese on toasted, buttered rye.  It’s a given there’s salt and pepper. (Side fries.  Home fries/hash browns don’t really do it for me.)

And another round would include, in some order: sunny side up egg, avocado, cream cheese, smoked salmon.

Here is my past body of work, just so you know that I’m not kidding:

Lox, Avocado and Feta Pita

Lox, Avocado, Feta and Fried Egg Pita

Lox and Quark Omelet

Lox, Tomato, Avocado and Egg Sandwich

Lox, Tomato, Avocado, Hummus and Cream Cheese Platter

I know.  I’m the most unoriginal blogger out there.  Well, or the most committed.  Some might call this an overkill of rich flavors. But I think the cool cream of the avocado and the tang of the smoked salmon and the saltiness of the cream cheese and the richness of the egg combine for a certain impactful (sp) bite.

Post jump is my latest way to combine my star ingredients by way of capturing a normally sweet batter and turning it into a savory device.

Savory Breakfast Waffle with Fried Egg

Mash together cream cheese and a spoonful of Dijon mustard until smooth.  If you have a microwave, you can nuke the cream cheese to soften.  Sprinkle in salt, pepper, capers and scallions.

On the *waffle* spread over the cream cheese mixture, top with chunks of avocado and diced smoked salmon.  Top with a fried egg.  Yes, savory waffles.  It totally works.

    I’m lovin it – but personally, if I’m gonna put cream cheese on something – I’m gonna use a lot more than that!

    I’m with you generally–never get tired of various styles of fried egg with any number of things either. That said, I would have the sunny side up egg with the swiss on rye and the over medium (or over easyish, mejor) with the with the salmon, avocado and cream cheese.

    I’m now officially craving some eggs with avocado. Wonder if anyone will notice one less avocado in Sundays guacamole?

    What that stylish picture doesn’t show is that there were two glorious waffles – I ate the other one. As someone who does not like syrup & therefore struggles with typical pancakes/waffles…gansie’s concoction was delicious & hit the spot.
