There Is Something Good About Breakfast

I've said it before. I love breakfast, even if I eat it at noon (like today). I'm revisiting my thoughts on breakfast because now I have a loaner digital camera. Usually I eat a real breakfast while watching the Food Network. Almost as good as FN is a James Bond movie. Goldfinger, one of my favs, is on right now.

First up, turkey breakfast sausage. I take a pound of turkey and add fennel, mustard, pepper, salt and fresh herbs. Mix all the ingredients together and chill it for an hour before forming into patties.

I place the formed patties on parchment and freeze them before placing them in a freezer container. This way I have ready-made portions.

Moving on to the coffee. I was at Costco and they had freshly roasted coffee beans. They smelled so good. To keep that great aroma, I store my beans in a Bean Vac. A couple of spins in the KitchenAid coffee grinder and I'm ready to make coffee.

Ahhh. The waffle. I added pecans today for a special treat. I'm particular about my waffles. I do not like Belgium waffles and I think the best on Earth are made by the Waffle House. My favorite waffle maker is the Villaware Classic. It has amazing temperature control.

Everything is ready! Let's eat.

Tools of the trade:

You are FUN, you write so nicely and even though I clearly should not be taking the time to do what I am doing right now....I had to let you know that I ordered the Revolution tea you reviewed....
By now I have forgotten how I got to your blog....senior moment.
I too love to cook, am aging a rib roast right now, cosyly tucked away in my fridge...(picture on my blog)
Happy Holidays!
