OK, let's start with Breakfast

I have two categories for breakfast - things I am doing for sure and ideas of things I want to do. The things I am doing for sure is a VERY small list, the idea list is HUGE.

Fer Shure
Breakfast Burritos
Huevos Rancheros
Bacon/Sausage/Egg Plates (ya know, 'I'll have two eggs sunny with four strips of bacon and piece of toast.')

That's it for that list. Even the breakfast burritoes have two lists -
Fer Shure - Eggs, potatoes, cheese, bacon, sausage and chile.

Maybes for Breakfast Burritos-

Carne de Chango - pork, but not just any pork. Hopefully I can source a good quality, hormone/antibiotic free pork butt that I can citrus marinate and lightly smoke. I am hoping for something a little different than carne adavada that everyone does, but not something so different that it scares people.

Carne de Carne - shredded beef brisket, not sure I want to do both beef and pork?

Pollo - Roasted chicken (a tasty bird) picked and simmered with green chile

Two types of beans - bacon filled pinto bean goodness and a vegetarian black bean

Rice - cilantro lime, if they/you will let me. I love rice for breakfast

Callabacitas - the zucchini/chile mix

Chilaquiles - tortilla chips that are quick cooked in a tomato broth, a hearty addition to a breakfast burrito

Maybes for the rest of Breakfast:

Huevos Chilaquiles - Tortilla chips that are quick cooked in a flavorful tomato broth, topped with fried eggs, served with beans and chile. Much heartier than the standard 'Rancheros'

Eggs Benedict - Do I really want to open that whole hollandaisse can of worms again? It really went awry last time.

Hippy Benedict - spinach and cheese sauce. Not really any healthier, it's just something that every hippy breakfast place in the PNW had, and I haven't really seen here in NM.

Crepes - There is so many things I could do with crepes, I don't even know where to start.

Pancakes - I know it doesn't seem like that should even be a question

French Toast - Think of the 'sandwiches' we could create between two slices of thick french toast. Ham and cheese, sausage and egg, strawberries and cream cheese, PBJ (with banana and bacon?), club sandwich

Eggs in a hole

Irish Oatmeal

Yogurt/granola sh$t

Cream of Wheat Sticks - cream of wheat that has been cooked and chilled so it 'sets up.' You then fry it up on the griddle. I was envisioning it as a kids dish, but I had seconds of it this morning with maple syrup and bananas and it's in a wedge and not a stick.

Breakfast Burger (hangover cure) - bacon, fried egg, cheese and chile

I've even started thinking about a 'dessert for breakfast' category.

Gingerbread french toast with maple sauce (creme anglais)

Half a grapefruit with carmelized sugar on top (brulee)

Cream of Wheat with peppermint ice cream...that's what the leftover cream of wheat was from. My kids loved going to school telling everyone they had ice cream for breakfast.

Breakfast all day???

That's it, what do you think? I think I have it set so that anyone can post replies, if not, drop me an email at jwulf@cybermesa.com
