TA: It's obvious.

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone.
I can see all obstacles in my way.
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind

It's gonna be a bright, bright sunshiney day (in North Bucks!) laugh

OK - let's find a * ponders * smiley. I will adopt the one that BS (our official forum Finder Ossifer) found. Well done, yet again, BS! brightsparklystuff

Would a Bircher-Museli (or whatever it's called in English) break the cereal at desk rule.

I basically mix a couple of tablespoons of museli into a pot of plain yogurt and add some fresh fruit for sweetness (or apple butter if you've got any). It's a very German thing but I enjoy it.

I take laziness with breakfast to new levels at times.

 

One of my favourites involves making a BIG frittata [sp] for dinner.  It uses up left overs and the surplus of eggs.  And then the left over left overs (following this?) do for breakfast on the go, lunch, supper.   Only downside I can see to this is if planning to eat the leftovers in the office you might want to use less garlic then I tend to.

wave Great idea Tracey.  Although easy on the garlic might be best right enough.   whistle

One of the benefits of working from home is that we can eat as much garlic as we like without fear of being stinky the next day. We love to roast a whole bulb with a roast chicken or thighs dish.

And breakfasts are a movable feast. Portability not required smile

Your frittata idea is sound, Tracey. My own "unusual" favourite is left over roast potatoes, ideally dipped in left over roast beef gravy. I could snaffle a plate of those at five in the morning! i_am_hungry

I baked pretzels this morning, following this recipe: http://www.thefreshloaf.com/recipes/pretzels I think it could have been used to make bagels as well, but it's been an age since I had a good pretzel. I went for the traditional eggwash and coarse salt sprinkling on most of them, but added fresh ground pepper to the last two.

Next time I make them (and there will be a next time) I'll roll them thinner and try making them bigger. The ones I had in New York were more loopy and less bready and I'd like to see if I can recreate them for myself.

They look yummy Shereen - I have plenty of fresh yeast at the moment, so I think I'll have a look for a recipe using fresh yeast, if possible. I do love working with yeast based breads.

Hi Shereen - normally I am a massive fan of your recipes but this is where we part company sorry

I think that bagels are the most overrated cardboard in the entire universe. Pretzels are OK, so your redemption is at hand! ok star star

Gorgeous piccies, in fairness big_hug

wave  I do have to say I agree with Danny, although I am not that keen on pretzels either.

But pretzels and bagels are both great! We've made both using the same dough recipe. Pretzels are definitely more 'fun'.

I have discovered a new Portable Breakfast. Leftover frittata.

Fiona's frittatas have been getting better and better with each attempt as she experiments with different ingredients and methods. Now that our chooks are delivering six a day we will have more frittatas.

This one was made with ten eggs and I hope she will post up the recipe soon. So it was a bit on the generous side, even for me who is not known for having mercy on portion size.

So there was a wedge left on the frying pan which I munched with my first cup of coffee (well, I did leave a sample for F). It was ab fab. I think it would make a great instant breakfast for anybody if you can force yourself to set aside a some (big_laugh ) at suppertime.
