Hook her up in bed in the morning with some delicious nourishment that is surely needed after the previous nights physical hookup.
Get your big hanging and “swanging ” ass out of the bed. Wash your hands and get in the kitchen while she’s in la-la land.
Once in the kitchen follow the instructions of this post to come up with a breakfast she won’t soon forget. Serve on a tray with a flower as a side piece.
The Man who prefers to cook breakfast should study the scrambled-egg technique of this Vongerichten fellow and adapt it to prepare the official easy breakfast of the Gentleman Scholar Culinary Arts Center. Most of us cannot go that route so here is an egg recipe that can be accompanied with French toast and some savory turkey sausage patties.
Scrambled Eggs for 2
5 large eggs
1 tablespoon butter (or more)
2 or 3 tablespoons half-and-half (or heavy cream)
handful of soft goat cheese or something
Set a frying pan over low heat. Quickly dice the cheese and mix it with the eggs and the cream; season at will. Back at the frying pan, add the butter and then reduce the heat to its minimum. Add any of all the ingredients with question marks you think will add wow to the eggs. Stir the mixture with an egg whisk as it cooks,this will get the eggs will nice and fluffy, so keep STIRRING WITH AN EGG WHISK at a medium pace as you gradually turn the heat up a bit above medium. Once the eggs start to set into curds, turn the heat back down. Remove and serve.
Oh we can’t just bring Mom eggs. We need something else. Let’s see, let’s see. Got it.
Homemade Turkey Sausage
2 tablespoons minced onion
3 tablespoons quick rolled oats
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground sage
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 pound ground turkey
1 egg white
Here’s how you make it happen
In a small mixing bowl, combine the onion, oats, parsley, salt, sage, cloves, nutmeg, and pepper. In a medium mixing bowl beat egg white with a fork and combine with the turkey. Add the onion and spice mixture and mix well.
Spray a large skillet with vegetable oil spray and preheat to medium heat. Shape the turkey mixture into 8 patties and cook over medium heat for 12 to 15 minutes, turning once. Ranges vary so if you have to turn again to insure complete cooking go for it.
I’m thinking we need some toast. but not just any toast we need special toast for a special lady.
Is there nothing better than French toast for Sunday breakfast? Thick slices of bread, soaked in a mixture of beaten eggs with milk and cinnamon, and served with butter and maple syrup, this is the bomb diggity!
French Toast That Will Curl Her Toes
1 cup half-and-half
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons honey, warmed in microwave for 20 seconds
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 (1/2-inch) slices day-old or stale country loaf, brioche or challah bread
4 tablespoons butter
Putting it all together
In medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the half-and-half, eggs, honey, and salt. You may do this the night before. When ready to cook, pour custard mixture into a pie pan and set aside.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Dip bread into mixture, allow to soak for 30 seconds on each side, and then remove to a cooling rack that is sitting in a sheet pan, and allow to sit for 1 to 2 minutes.
Over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a 10-inch nonstick saute pan. Place 2 slices of bread at a time into the pan and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and place on rack in oven for 5 minutes. Repeat with all 8 slices. Serve immediately with maple syrup, whipped cream or fruit.
Now here’s a left field idea that’s cheap, unique and sure to score big. Scratch the orange juice from the shopping list. Replace it with the biggest oranges or tangerines you can find and a package of drinking straws.
Roll the orange to loosen up the juices. Chill, Puncture the top and insert the straw and serve along with cup of Mom’s favorite coffee.
