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:
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.
