What's your best breakfast sandwich
Posted by JohnnyK on Wednesday, July 28, 2021 7:11 PM

First I make an egg frittata with bacon, spinich, Gruere cheese and grape tomatoes. When the fittata is finished cooking I cut it into round patties using a metal burger ring form. Then I butter a toasted English muffin. I put the frittata pattie on the bottom of the muffin and place a slice of American cheese on top. Into the microwave for 15 seconds to melt the cheese. Next comes a pattie of breakfast sausage and finally the top of the muffin. It is served with fresh orange juice and hot Pete's coffee. Way better than an Egg McMuffin.

Your comments and questions are always welcome.

There's a really good Mexican food take out downstairs from my office.

I usually get a burrito with scrambled eggs, potatoes, chorizo and extra crema. They cook the eggs in salsa. 

Real mexican burritos are not those big Gordo whoppers, sized more like an egg roll.

El Charrito (the little cowboy).

Bacon, wrapped in bacon, with a side of bacon .  .  . on a toasted English muffin, but only because you said 'sandwich'.

Now back when I was with the Teams .  .  . the roach coach that cruised the base had a mondo-grande monstrosity that probably didn't qualify as a burrito; bacon, egg, hash browns, cheese and pico de gallo salsa. It was almost a foot long and three and a half inches in diameter, and ungodly good, especially after a long PT run.

These all sound great.  My favorite breakfast is well made Huevos Ranchros but on the subject of breakfast sandwichs:

Fried egg, couple strips of bacon, hasbrown patty topped with cheddar on a toasted everything bagle.

Or any breakfast sandwich out on a overnight fishing charter.  The sea and the morning make everything tasted good :)

Thanks,

John

Hate to ask, but what is breakfast?

My lady would do me up a couple eggs and a couple slices of sourdough toast and butter.  Now that she passed this last Saturday, I'm back to not worrying about anything till around noon.

The breakfast burrito at The English Rose Rincon Puerto Rico.  Pork sausage, 3 eggs, sharp cheddar, and pico de gallo.  I have them hold the sour cream.  Everything at this place is just amazing.  If you're  ever in Rincon you gotta go.

Breakfast would depend on where I was at the time.

Usually on my first two tours overseas it would end up with whatever was left at the snackbar at the armory.  Usually a couiple doughnuts and abottle of soda, but if I was really luck I could get a water buffalo cheese burger before heading to post.  Otherwise it was whatever the dininghall could slap together.

After I got married it was usually just some cerial or maybe I could patrol near the dining hall or base ops and grab something i could eat while driving

In N.D., anything hot in our dining facility downstairs in the flight ops building.

When I used to work it would be a stop at Dunkin for a coffee and something or Wawa for almost the same.  

Now that I don't have a job, back to cerial, kor waffels, or sausage and biscquicks.

Because I'm a diabetic, I have to be on a diet. 1 cup of cereal with 1 cup of 2% milk and a banana. But, whenever I get a chance, a 3 egg Western omlet or Farmers omlet with hash browns and 2 pieces of toast w/jelly.  Believe it or not, the first one has 66 carbs which is all I'm supposed to have at a meal. The second has around the same. Guess which one I would prefer more often. Oh, and a cup of good hot coffee, straight.

Sorry to hear of your loss, Goldhammer.

Despite that sad news, you guys are making me hungry for a very bad breakfast darned near anywhere. But in the real world, I'll stick to my oatmeal with freshly picked blueberries and a couple slices of wheat toast, I suppose.

Certainly not McDonald's any more.  The local store is still operating in full Covid panic mode (most everything else in town is wide open and close to normal), and they have locked closed the restrooms !!!  I would think local ordinances require that all restaurants have public restrooms.

No big deal, I just won't go there any more.

Good for breakfast or a lunch in the field.  Fry up enough bacon crisp to cover a 7-8 inch pancake, crumbled.  Make said pancake in bacon grease.  Crumble bacon and cover pancake, sprinkle liberally with brown sugar, (light or dark).  Roll and wrap in wax paper, foil or clear wrap.

If rolled in foil for a field lunch, can reheat on the engine.

We used to make these for a day out fishing, hunting or rockhounding.

Today it would give your cardiologist a stroke if you told him, but nothing better on a cold wet day to give you some energy to keep slogging on.

 

This was out of an old Gander Mountain cook book from the '60's.

Not my best breakfast sandwich, but.....tonight's dinner? 

Italian Meatball Sandwich Big Smile

Breakfast? I do like biscuits and gravy, for one thing.

GH that sounds super yummy. Speaking of cholesterol, not breakfast food related but my mom used to fry up a ton of super crispy bacon and crumple them over fluffy white rice. She then scooped all the bacon bits in the pan along with some of the grease and poured it over the rice. My mouth is watering right now. She never had heart issues and lived a long life to the age of 91.

It seems like every few years, they say something isn't good for you, then it is, and something else should go away.  I remember when everyone said dump eggs, then 3-4 years later they reversed direction and said they were good for you.

Now it's red meat, in a couple years, it'll be fish or white meat.

I eat what I like and if it kills me, so be it.

Mom used to do rice for dinner, and make enough for the next day.  Breakfast the next day was rice, milk, and some sugar.  Treated it like cereal.

Art: I l pray for your loss. I've put you on the Mass schedule for the first available date- September.

Father Murphy: "This Mass is offered in memory of miss Goldhammer".

Looking forward. 

As a son of the Golden West you will appreciate two:

Joe's Special. A breakfast that can't be beat (except see below)

-Fry garlic and onions. Add spinach to skillet and wilt. Dollop with Wus'ter sauce and whatever herbs you have like oregano or parsley.

-Add ground beef and fry till not too pink.

-Wisk together a bunch of good farm eggs, dump into skillet and toss.

- Plate with Pico de Gallo or Tabasco (my way).

 

Hang Town Fry

-Fry bacon, drain, reserve and crumble.

-Chop a good handful of scallions

- Shuck a half dozen smallish oysters, dredge in flour/ egg/ bread crumbs and fry in oil in your skillet.

- Add onions, soften. Add half dozen eggs and stir up.

-Add bacon, toss on some cheese and serve.

 E cCampus Vitus!

Since the conversation has moved off topic from breakfast sandwiches to just plain breakast, here are a few of my favorites.

My wife has a very good recipe for homemade buttermilk waffles,very simple wirh just syrup and either Taylor Ham sausage,or well done bacon. Pancakes from the Union Plaza Diner in NJ French Toast stuffed with sweet cream cheese I hate coffee,so its usually with a diet Pepsi or a diet Dew.

Of course these are not on a regular basis or I'd be dead,most of the time it's cold cereal.

As someone mentioned,from time to time,breakfast for dinner is fun,especially at a favorite diner,or even as a late night snack

"You have to remember that the same people who brought us sun block are the same people that told us that eggs were bad.  Then they said that eggs were good.  Then they said that the yolks were bad, but the whites...MAKE UP YOUR MIND!  ITS BREAKFAST!  I GOTTA EAT!

Who knows.  In 50 years maybe they'll find out why we had cholesterol.  It wasn't the steak...it was the sun block." ~ Lewis Black

My favorite breakfast is a big, homemade breakfast burrito with eggs, hash browns, and bacon.  I smother it in homemade pork green chile that uses nothing from a can (except beef broth).  I got to the point where adding 1/2 a pound of Habanero peppers to it wasn't quite giving it enough kick, so I started putting some ground Hontaka peppers in it to get it even more spicy.
