Savory Oatmeal

Savory Oatmeal

Hungry and looking to try something new, we stumbled upon the Oakhurst Inn, a boutique hotel just off JPA by UVA’s campus. They’ve been serving breakfast and coffee since May, but just recently branched into lunch (grab and go sandwiches, mainly) and weekend brunch (until 2 p.m.). I enjoy a lot of options in Charlottesville, and I love … Continue reading

Breakfast “Pizza”

Breakfast “Pizza”

One thing we’ve discovered recently is that baking all of your bacon in a giant batch, and then reheating it in the microwave throughout the week yields results virtually identical to baking it every morning. Same tasty bacon with way less time, dishes, and bacon smell. That’s a major win. In a similar vein, we … Continue reading

My New Favorite Breakfast

My New Favorite Breakfast

My favorite breakfast has a new look. Many of the original elements remain — eggs, onions, spiciness, and salty pork products never get old — but I’ve moved on to something a little different. This is a breeze to make ahead and reheat and is easily doubled, tripled, etc. with minimal additional effort. Even better, simple … Continue reading

Apple Streusel Muffins

Apple Streusel Muffins

The last time I made these apple streusel egg muffins from Balanced Bites, Michael’s response was “These are delicious! Please NEVER make them again.” If they are so delicious, why the antipathy towards a recipe repeat? Because cleaning the muffin pan was a pain-in-the-***. My old muffin tin is pretty worthless: it doesn’t really have a … Continue reading

Breakfast Casserole, Revisited

Breakfast Casserole, Revisited

I started getting into breakfast casseroles as the ideal “grab and go breakfast” towards the end of last summer. After a few months of experimentation, I’ve found a few tricks that lead to (near) casserole perfection: Use a 13×9 pan. For awhile, I struggled with casseroles in 8×8 pans that took forever to bake in … Continue reading

Italian Egg Bake

Italian Egg Bake

Spaghetti squash…not just for faux noodles anymore! We’ve been getting a lot of spaghetti squash and spinach in our produce box lately, and this was a way to break beyond our normal ways of eating them. Like any casserole, it would be amenable to using up odds and ends of whatever you have in your … Continue reading

Warm Butternut Squash & Bacon Salad

Warm Butternut Squash & Bacon Salad

Peppery arugula + tangy sherry vinegar + crunchy pecans + sweet butternut squash + salty, chewy bacon = delicious. Top with a poached egg for a fabulous, fresh fall dinner salad, or serve it sans egg as a side for some roast chicken. This is a very imprecise recipe and can be easily modified with … Continue reading

Poached Eggs & Hollandaise with Squash & Spinach

Poached Eggs & Hollandaise with Squash & Spinach

It’s a general rule that a weekend isn’t complete if breakfast doesn’t include something slightly decadent. Sometimes it is a plate full of salty, crispy home fries, sometimes PaleOMG’s carrot cake pancakes, and today it was my first-ever attempt at hollandaise. It was super easy, super delicious, and, now that I know this, I’ll probably … Continue reading

Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast Casserole

Although few things beat a fried egg with a runny, orange-yellow yolk and crispy, fatty bacon fresh from the pan, sometimes it is really nice to have a grab’n’go breakfast on hand. It frees up time and ensures you have breakfast. While hard-boiled eggs are easy and effective, I enjoy something with a little more … Continue reading

Okra Hash with Shrimp and “Grits”

Okra Hash with Shrimp and “Grits”

After a few days in Eastern North Carolina with its vinegary pulled pork, boiled peanuts sold at stands on country highways, and grits–lots and lots of grits–consider this low-country inspiration. Okra Hash with Shrimp and “Grits” Serves 2 Okra Hash 3 pieces thick cut bacon, cut into short pieces (like lardons) 1/2 onion, diced generous … Continue reading
