My Horizontal Breakfast

Not breakfast in bed... (I wish!)...breakfast on the horizontal... :)


Sometimes I use my horizontal for grilling.. I love it, there is so much grilling surface..



I started a skillet of potatoes and onions first..




then made the hollandaise sauce...

whisked three egg yolks with a squeeze of lemon juice... then added butter 1 tbs at a time.





after the sauce had thickened, I removed the pot from the fire..



grilled slices of ham...



fresh gathered eggs ...



fried the eggs and toasted the english muffins....

I slid the cooking grate to the side, off the fire to snap a pic. (didn't want to burn anything. :))









It was so tasty, reminded me of breakfast while camping. :)

Hi

See you have a range of egg colour there - what chickens do you have.

Best wishes

Hi Evelyn!
I like to keep heavy breeds, I use them for both meat and eggs.
I've got some buff orpingtons, rhode island reds, marans, barred rocks...araucanas, black giants..
several "home grown" birds.
I let some of my hens hatch out a clutch in the spring and use them as replacement hens or for canning.

Every so often I like to get a batch of cornish birds to raise for the freezer (or can).

I try to keep my flock at about 25.
Seems to keep me in enough eggs and meat. :)

Best wishes to you too! :)

Your egg basket looks a lot like mine, some brown, some green.
But my breakfast doesn't look anything like yours. If I come over will you cook me breakfast? LOL

Ron said...

Isn't it always a joy when all of the prep work comes together in the finished product?

Good job Jeanie!

Ron, you are so right! I have the timing down from making this breakfast on the campfire so often. The danged sauce needs so much attention, I make it first because I know everything else would burn while I stir it. I always keep my fingers crossed that it will turn out. lol
Thanks so much Ron! :)

cowgirl said...

lol Sap... In my dreams! :)
I can't remember the last time I had breakfast in bed.. not counting the times I take a bag of pretzels back to bed with me after staying up too late. lol

Thanks Sap...

Capt. Ron said...

Wow, you amaze me!...not only do you have more grills than anyone that I know. You know what to do with all of them.

Tess Harris said...

Wow!
That plate looks mighty tasty.
What a breakfast!

cowgirl said...

Thank you Capt. Ron! I do have quite a herd of cookers...
I said I wouldn't build anything else after the Drum... but I'm working on a new little cooker in my spare time now. lol

cowgirl said...

Thank you so much Tess! I think anything cooked outside tastes good. lol :)

Jeanie
Great looking breakfast. I wish I could cook meals like that on a stove....lol
Make sure ya post pictures, etc. of the new cooker.
I'm still struggling with stuff on the drum (1 step forward 2 steps back)...lol :)

cowgirl said...

lol Thanks Rick! From the looks of the things you cook outside, I know you can probably cook on a stove too!
Thanks. :)
