Challah French Toast is what’s for Breakfast!

An homage to my Jewish brethren commemorating Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, accompanied by unorthodox thick-sliced Bacon.  Raised by a Southern Baptist Mamma–what can I say?!

Covered in Maple Syrup, with the 10 Things I Hate About You soundtrack playing in the background, it’s all good….

Breakfast for Dinner

After starting the morning with a wonderful Yoga class, the rest of the day has been mellow city.   And since Ms. Foodie is flying solo tonight for din-din, I figured I’d continue the mellowness and flow with Simple Fare.  And nothing is simpler than an omelette.

To give some richness to my omelette, I decided to whip the eggs with evaporated milk, and threw in some Basil for good measure.

I always keep White Shrimp in the freezer, because I’m a shrimp nut, and it’s easy protein and Omega 3s in any meal.  After peeling the shrimp, coarsely chopping them, then sautéing the crustaceans in butter, garlic, salt and pepper, I poured on the egg mixture.

As the egg base solidified, I added a 3-Cheese Blend of Monterey Jack, Cheddar, and Mozzarella from Trader Joe’s, and for a bit of color, red and orange baby bell peppers!

It’s Jewish High Holiday season, so Challah is in large supply in every grocery store.  I decided to break off some pieces of the loaf, along with a glass of Tolosa Chardonnay, to accompany my meal.

And the rest of the Challah loaf will be quite useful for breakfast again–stay tuned….
