I know MUSOLF6's post on this topic that I'm replying to was 8 years ago basically, I like her idea of breakfast. Bagel, soft cheese, scrambled egg and coffee? ayup, that'll work.

Her last post was about AFib and seeing the doctor, but I'm going to check it out. That was 706 days ago. Yeow!

Still, bagel, cheese, egg, hot drink? In some parts of Texas they'd say "That'd preach". hahaha

I really like cold eggnog with plenty cinnamon & nutmeg, Sourdough toast as thick a slice as I can get upon which peanut butter is shmeared on while toast is hot then drizzle a thin web of honey. Umm hmmm.

These Biscuits are "Love American Style" carb for meals, not a dessert or snack cookie.

I love biscuits with breakfast, lunch, supper, or dinner. Actually you can use them to make dessert also, but let's stick with this beloved recipe from "Homesick Texan". I've made some alternative language tweaks to the recipe. C_cup, Tbsp_tablespoon, etc.

Servings 10 biscuits
Author Lisa Fain

Items
2C all­purp flour
1Tbsp bakng pwdr
1tsp sugr
1/2tsp koshr salt
8Tbsp (1 stick) UNsalted butter, chilled
3/4C buttermilk, cream, or half­and­half *_ga- see below

2do
Preheat oven 450° F
-Lightly grease a baking sheet or cast­iron skillet
-Mix dry items together.
-Cut butter stick to pieces, then work into flour-mix with hands or by
hand w) a pastry blender to resemble pea­sized crumbs.
-Add the liquid while stirring til a bit loose, and sticky.
-Pour the dough out on a floured surface, and knead for a minute.

Dough must be smooth and no longer wet. Sprinkle more flour on
surface if it’s sticking.
Shape dough into ball and whack it with rolling pin, a) turning it and
b) folding it in half every few whacks. Do this for a couple of minutes.

Roll out 1/4” thick then fold it in half.
Use round biscuit cutter or glass-cup to cut out your biscuits from
the folded dough and place on a greased baking sheet close together
(so they rise up not out)
Bake for 15 minutes or when tops are golden brown.

If you don’t want to roll and cut them out, after kneading and beating
the dough you can drop the dough onto the baking sheet with a
spoon to make "cat-head biscuits".
They’re not as symmetrical but they’re no less delicious.

*_ga- make your own buttermilk with help from AllRecipes.com --
How to substitute buttermilk
Each buttermilk substitute recipe below combines regular milk with an acidic ingredient like lemon juice or yogurt. Each substitute makes 1 cup.

Substitute 1: White vinegar
1 tablespoon white vinegar + enough milk to make 1 cup

Substitute 2: Lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice + enough milk to make 1 cup

Substitute 3: Cream of tartar
1 ¾ teaspoon cream of tartar + 1 cup milk

Substitute 4: Yogurt
¾ cup yogurt + ¼ cup milk

Substitute 5: Sour Cream
¾ cup sour cream + ¼ cup milk

To make each of these substitutes for buttermilk, stir the ingredients together and let them sit for about 10 minutes so the milk can “sour.” Then go ahead, use it as a substitute for buttermilk in baking. One cup of real or substitute buttermilk = one cup of whole, skim, or non-fat milk.

I'm flying that flag just because some Texans like to think they are their own nation.

Apple salad:
Apple chunks, pineapple, walnuts (or almonds, sunflower seeds, cashews...), celery, raisins or grapes; for sauce I'd recommend Grk yogurt & apple pie spice. If you must, you can add mayo to the yogurt to make it have more body.

I love custard so I'll have to give that recipe a try
but first was very interested in TINAJANE's spiced oatmeal with coconut milk! Sounds awesome!


Since I was little I've loved my mother's baked eggs:
She lined muffin tins with thin slices of ham, cracked egg into each one
then baked until set/cooked.
I've experimented and found that if you are in a hurry you can create something similar to this with a small bowl cooked in the microwave (just be careful not to overcook or it gets very chewy....Better if done in oven but if you are careful microwave is okay). I've tried it with just about every kind of deli meat....works but some are tastier than others. Personal preference is still ham.
Breakfast is baked egg with fruit/fruitsalad.

Here is a nice morning time custard. It is especially nice for people who may not feel so well, or who have a sore throat.

Breakfast Custard (serves 1)

In a medium sized custard bowl or soup bowl (about 2 cup size) mix:

2 eggs (whisk these well)
1 cup milk
2-3 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
a pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Blend this well, so that the egg is well mixed and incorporated with the milk. Place the dish in a toaster oven or regular oven at 350'F and bake for about an hour, or until it is firm. For a bit of extra sweetness, serve with a splash of syrup over it. Let cool at least for 10-15 minutes before eating. It is very hot.

Enjoy! : )

I've got a new favorite that's muscling in on my previous one, especially now that it's cold. Half a cup of oats cooked in one cup of 1% milk with a dash of coriander, cardamom, cloves and a more generous dash of cinnamon. I top it off with a little stevia for sweetness, an ounce of raisins and a few sliced almonds or some flaxseed. If I can spare the extra calories, I'll add a bit of coconut milk or unsweetened coconut flakes. A yummy, satisfying breakfast with an Indian flare.

This is not an everyday breakfast because of the high fat/salt content, but I like it so much that I make sure I balance it out with the rest of the day's intake.

Ever been to China? We lived for three years in Beijing and one of our favorite foods was the Jian Bing. It is predominately street food, a chinese crepe seasoned with local sauces, cilantro and scallion.

I just purchase an electrice crepe maker and have make these a few times already. Be brave, try something new...

I submitted it as a Spark recipe
