First Breakfasts of 2011


 I think we need a little more variety in our meals. I probably should probably find a good Stollen recipe or a Swedish pastry. Tell me what you had for breakfast on January 1, and then perhaps I can then add a little more diversity to our menus.

  2. Nothing new. I treated myself to some french toast, with locally made black cherry syrup on top. Those Eggs Benedict look scrumptious.

  4. 3, actually

    Low-fat granola and fresh grapefruit segments at the Marriott Fairfield in Portsmouth NH at 8am followed by fried eggs, bacon and tomato with a mustard hollandaise on toasted wholemeal bread and a DECENT double espresso at the Hi Rise Bakery in Cambridge, MA at noon.
    Then fresh fruit and tea at 10pm (4am CET on LH423 Boston-Frankfurt)

  5. Kate, I enjoyed our traditional (once a year) breakfast of fruit and apple fritters which my grandfather told me was a French tradition for good luck throughout the following year...

  7. Is that what you eat for breakfast???? I'm coming to your house to eat. I have greek yogurt, fruit, and granola, no matter how special the day.

  8. That top breakfast suits me just fine. However I had a rather boring eggs and bacon breakfast on New Year's Day.

  9. No burritos here. I started Weight Watchers last April. So for me it was an English Muffin, yogurt and fruit. How exciting huh. Your looks rich and yummy.

  10. Our first meal of the New Year was not a breakfast, but a "dawning."

    Julie and I were in Santiago, Chile for New Year's. We went to New Year's Eve celebration at a restaurant that overlooked the city, and the menu and list of activities had something called "dawning service." We learned that it is another meal service to help greet the dawn. After an elegant dinner at 10:00 pm, they served a "dawning" meal after 2:00 am. It was chicken soup and roast beef sandwiches.

    We returned to our hotel about 5:00 am, and I set the alarm for a little before 10:00 because the hotel breakfast buffet ended at 10:00 and we paid extra for breakfast (and internet) to be included with the room, so we also had a conventional breakfast of eggs, bacon, toast, and about 4 types of fruit.

  11. But the Eggs Benedict with asparagus looks delicious! We had a simple bowl of cream of wheat, brown sugar and dried cranberries.

  12. Nothing as fancy as what you show here. We had sweet rolls and coffee in bed.
    But that evening we had black eyed pea tostada at the table. Yum.

  13. This looks delicious! I had so much food on New Year's Eve that I think I didn't have any breakfast the next day... at least I can't remember it! LOL! Sorry, Kate.

  15. Nothing exciting, just eggs and toast, I'm afraid! I think I need some breakfast inspiration too. :)

  19. Kate, your first breakfast on January 1 looks delicious!
    I had coffee with milk and a slice of Panetone.

    I wish you a Happy 2011!

  20. What scrumptious photos, Great Kate! BTW, the Swedish Kringla recipe missed mentioning to add 1 CUP of flour to the almost boiling water....

  21. We were at an Inn in the Swiss Alps for new year's, so we had their breakfast buffet. Wasn't that exciting.

    At home my husband and I like to have big breakfasts on the weekend. Usually we have bagels with a variety of topping: cold cuts, sliced cheese, hummus, guacamole, etc. We're more into savory breakfast foods than sweet stuff.

  22. Poached eggs over Canadian bacon and English muffin is one of my favorite breakfast dishes. Unfortunately, I don't see it on too many menus up here in Maine.

    How does cereal and dry toast grab ya?
