I was making cheesy, scrambled eggs, bacon and potatoes at 4:30 am. for Mark. It's not very often I make breakfast during the week. Usually, it's been on the weekend.

That is the best way to have it.

I didn't have any breakfast this morning. I'm going to have lunch shortly, though.

I had this for Sunday Brunch two days ago, and a mini version this morning:

Eggs Barbacoa


Ingredients:
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 6 tablespoons bottled low-sodium salsa (such as Green Mountain Gringo), divided
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 8 (6-inch) corn tortillas
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 large eggs
  • teaspoon kosher salt
  • teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup*hot Beef Barbacoa
  • cup (2 ounces) queso fresco, crumbled
  • cup finely chopped green onions
  • cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 lime wedges
Instructions:

Place beans in a food processor; process until smooth. Combine beans, 2 tablespoons salsa, and 2 tablespoons water in a small saucepan over low heat until warm, stirring occasionally. Keep warm.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly coat both sides of each tortilla with cooking spray. Place 1 tortilla in pan, and cook for 30 seconds on each side or until toasted. Repeat procedure with remaining tortillas.

Add water to a large skillet, filling two-thirds full; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer. Break 1 egg into each of 4 (6-ounce) custard cups coated with cooking spray. Place custard cups in simmering water in pan. Cover pan; cook 8 minutes. Remove custard cups from water. Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over eggs.

Place 2 tortillas on each of 4 plates, and top each tortilla with 2 tablespoons bean mixture. Top beans with 2 tablespoons Beef Barbacoa. Place 1 poached egg on each plate so it overlaps both tortillas. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon remaining salsa. Sprinkle each serving with 2 tablespoons cheese, 1 tablespoon green onions, and 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.

This was accompanied by a mixed fruit salad, Mexican rice, and pear bellinis

breakfast has been oatmeal most every morning this month. it takes about 25 minutes to cook, giving my appetite time to freak. my brown sugar has turned to stone, so while i figure out how to soften this box of rocks, i'm having my oatmeal with sizzling deeply browned butter and a sprinkling of kosher salt. sometimes, for the last few minutes of cooking, i add a little farina to the oatmeal pot. that's good too--real substantial breakfast fare....:)

Yesterday it was cabbage rolls for breakfast. Today was one egg on a serving of kale and one egg on a serving of turkey chili mole. I keep hearing to have protein + veggies or fruit for breakfast, some carbs, and calcium. No problem getting the protein or veggies/fruit, the carbs are somewhat of an issue for me...I don't really care for carbs...

I just grab the chunk of brown sugar and grate it onto my cereal. I only worry about making it soft if I need to mix it into something like a batter.
