Anyone making a big breakfast tomorrow?

We typically eat light during the week, cereal, toast with jam, fresh fruit salad, tea, coffee. On the weekend I like to make a big breakfast. We love omelets and fritattas (especially the bacon and potatoe frittata that I think Mish posted in the eggs forum).

So, anyone else making a big breakfast tomorrow or Sunday?

naw... we'll grab a bowl of cereal and a muffin before hitting the woods.

I might make breakfast for dinner tonight.. that sounds like a good idea.

I love breakfast. You want a couple of ideas? I've got some lovely recipes I've made in the past. If I had to choose just one meal to eat it would be breakfast...of course I have some strange things for breakfast

I'm with you, Texas - love to eat breakfast, hate to make it myself!

It's my favorite meal to go out to eat.

Nope, I've gotta get up too early in the morning. Hubby wants to have a yard sale so it'll be cereal, toast, or whatever you can find & fix yourself for us. I'm so glad my kids are at the age where they can fix their own breakfasts.

Sounds like a really fun career to have. Your breakfast tomorrow sounds delicious, though I dont know what a "strata" is. Do you have a website that includes your menu options?

Today was tomato frittata day. (It was supposed to be spinach, but the spinach had gone bad.)

Saturday's are usually "walk to the local coffee shop day", but I have a flight in the morning, so it might be a Cinnabon at the airport instead. Or cereal before hand if I get too hungry.

marmar, are you one of the crew? Do you have a long trip? If yes, eat a decent breakfast - you've got a lot of walking in front of you.

I use to really like making nice breakfasts on the weekends - omelettes, fritattas, pancakes, waffles, muffins, or egg/turkey bacon/cheese sandwiches, etc.

Then 2 years ago husband went on a major health kick & will now only eat plain yogurt with a little fruit for breakfast, regardless of the day or occasion, unless we're breakfasting out, which is rare. I'm happy that he wants to be healthy, but still miss making those breakfasts (& somehow don't think a regular breakfast once a week would send him into cardiac arrest - lol - but it's his choice, & I have to respect it.)

Oh a strata.. Well its cubed bread and you can put any filling i use ham cheese and peppers or like today CInn. raisins maple syrup and sugar vanilla etc.

Then you make an egg mixture of eggs milk and what ever spices etc you want pour over let set over night.. then bake..

It turns out to be like baked french toast sooo moist and tasty!

AAhhh breakfast. When the kids ( whopping great 22, 20 and 17 yr olds) are around I do Breakfast for Champions.
Sausage, bacon, fried bread, hash browns clive's way ( since I have no idea what they should really look like, I make a hash of it ), tomatoes and mushrooms slow cooked in huge globs of butter, baked beans, and perico.
Perico is a local form of scrambled eggs with diced onion, tomato, sweet and hot peppers, sprinkled with cilantro and served (in this house) with Andean Picante de leche - a hot sauce made with fresh milk.
Mugs of Assam Tea all round, of course.

After that lot, I'm no good for anything so I slump in a chair and watch football all day...

( Pass the wine, Loprraine!)

Strata sounds alot like a bread pudding which is a dessert here, so your strata sounds more of a savory breakfast or brunch, sounds great! Love your website. Your bread and breakfast menu looks good too. The rooms are so nice and cozy, and your prices are very reasonable.
