Ja-Oui

Breakfast together on the weekends (or holidays) is a treasured luxury. The weekend brings about a better-rested, more relaxed DCM whom I am more than happy to indulge. I try to think of as many ways as possible to make weekend breakfasts interesting. 

This is a little restricted when my DCM does not have a sweet tooth. He’ll have one or two cupcakes I make, some chocolate with almonds as a snack, a bit of birthday cake or try a dessert I’m having if I ask nicely but that’s about it. 

So Gg says “bye-bye” to pancakes and sweet french toasts… I love pancakes… And pancakes are something that you cannot make just for one.

Our breakfasts therefore consists a lot of bacon, eggs and sausages. I’m not complaining (much). I love bacon, eggs and sausages.

Here’s one of my bacon, eggs and sausages variations I call Gg’s Danish Croque-madame which combines the concept of an Egg in a basket with that of a Croque-madame. What makes it Danish is the use of this bread I found at GWC’s CS called Danish bread (a bread version of croissant), Danish brie instead of Emmental or Gruyère and Danish streaky bacon. See recipe here.

Egg in a Basket meets Croque-madame

Danish Brie melts beautifully and its subtle flavour brings out the salt of the bacon. The egg is perfection with the yolk still a little runny; perfect for dunking the toasted cut-out circle of bread. The Danish bread’s crumbly crispness is messy but so nommy. Cherry tomatoes add a fresh sweetness and are good for the prostate.

It sure takes more time and effort than just frying up eggs, bacon and sausages, and toasting some bread but it’s for my DCM so it’s worth it. He liked it plenty and so did I.
