BREAKFAST BOMBS

BREAKFAST BOMBS

You’ve caught me bomb making in my galley again and today is all about starting your day with a big bang.  Those Taco Bombs from last week’s post were good weren’t they?  Didn’t try them yet?  Well scoot on over there for JOAN’S TACO BOMBS,then come right back to check out these lovely little breakfast treats. I made the same yogurt/flour dough from Joan’s Taco Bombs and divided it into 16 pieces this time instead of 8 and liked the…

BANANA OAT MUFFINS

BANANA OAT MUFFINS

I’ve been trying to become better organized in the galley these days.  It’s far too easy for me to get side tracked by yet another tasty something or other to try out.  It’s why for a brief time I subscribed to home delivery meals…all nicely packaged with just enough for the two of us…no leftovers…so extra bits and pieces to be stored in the refrigerator either waiting to be used for another recipe or walking itself into the garbage at…

BAKED EGGS IN ROASTED PEPPERS

BAKED EGGS IN ROASTED PEPPERS

Chilly rainy days mean cooked breakfast aboard R.E.D.  I had some fresh greens, peppers and farm eggs just begging to be turned into something belly warming. The greens I used were a mix of baby kale and arugula which gave a more crispy result.  Small chopped spinach leaves work well too.   Choose your peppers wisely if using the Omnia stove top oven.  They should be small enough to sit as flat as possible.  Also, when cutting them try to…

TURNIP HASH and SAUSAGE BAKE (with product review)

TURNIP HASH and SAUSAGE BAKE (with product review)

Really excited about this post today, Galley Peeps!  I have a new recipe to try out in my Omnia stove top oven and a new galley toy to play with.  I recently learned about this barbecue thermometer from someone on a social media group that I follow.  It’s probe fits perfectly into the lid of the Omnia to monitor the ambiant temperature inside the cook pan. Up to now I’ve had to guess at what temperature to set the stove…

EGGNOG DUTCH BABY

EGGNOG DUTCH BABY

It’s surprising how little effort it takes to throw together something special for a Boxing Day breakfast or brunch.  With the help of some Christmas gnome magic and all the flavours that speak of the season this creamy concoction was ready in no time. For the purpose of boat galley cooking it was made in my stove top Omnia oven but in a conventional oven it’s cooked in a cast iron skillet. It puffed up beautifully (thankfully that’s as far…

BAKED AVOCADO EGGS

BAKED AVOCADO EGGS

  When we’re not heading out on the water early, I love putting together something a bit more special for our breakfast.  On days like this our first morning coffee spills over to a second, sometimes a third so that by the time we eat it’s more of a brunch thing.   Many years ago now when we were in the dating phase of our relationship, Francois used to put together some really awesome brunches.  One of the things I…

SIMPLE PEACH BREAD PUDDING

SIMPLE PEACH BREAD PUDDING

There’s nothing more satisfying than a rich, creamy, custardy bread pudding.  It’s like having dessert for breakfast. This was a product of using up some galley supplies.  The last of my farm eggs from happy chickens, some opened canned milk, aging whole grain bread (hard to believe this one slipped by my bread-lovin’ man) and canned peaches (yes, I know fresh are in season but I’m trying to use up some provisions so I can dive into enjoying ‘real’ peaches….

EGGS BENEDICT CASSEROLE

EGGS BENEDICT CASSEROLE

I think Eggs Benedict or any of its many versions is one of our favourite breakfast/brunch meals.  It does however mean several stages of prep and more than just a pan or two to put it together (toasting the muffins, grilling the ham, poaching the eggs, not to mention whipping up that perfect Hollandaise sauce). In celebration of tomorrow’s National Eggs Benedict Day, I threw together (almost literally too) an easier version with all the main components and pretty much…

EASY CHEESY EGGS

EASY CHEESY EGGS

Our leisurely morning breakfast turned into a flavour explosion today. Try this next time you have a craving for fried eggs. Instead of butter or cooking oil to lubribate the pan, use grated Parmesan (or any other hard cheese like aged cheddar) as a base. I’ve tried Parm and Cheddar and LOVE them both. The oils from the cheese are released when heated, the egg is fried on top and that combination of creamy egg yolk and the bite of…

WAFFLED MASHED POTATOES with SMOKED SALMON and YOGURT

WAFFLED MASHED POTATOES with SMOKED SALMON and YOGURT

I’m on a leftover-mashed-potato kick this week and am realizing there are SO many ways to transform them for another meal so that they don’t really resemble their original state. Like a potato disguise. ….I pulled together my ingredients …hauled out my little boat waffle iron.       …and was very pleased with the results. …potatoes in disguise. WAFFLED MASHED POTATOES with SMOKED SALMON and YOGURT makes about 12 waffles   what you will need 2 cups mashed potatoes…
