      At least twice a week, we enjoy a yummy breakfast meal.  Tonight hub was very specific in his yearning, and that meant omelet..so, I am surprising him with a bacon & cheddar omelet with fresh parsley, home-fried potatoes, English muffins with sour cherry jam, fruit cup and lavender tea cakes for dessert.

      What are some of your favorite breakfast meals?estatic

        • When we do have breakfast usually on the weekends one of us will cook. We have home fried potatoes with jack cheese melted over them, over medium eggs and crispy bacontongue out plus toast with strawberry jam.

          Where both not real big breakfast eaters but when we do have it we go all out...lol, It’s a good thing we don’t eat this all the time.

        • Mary...sounds like a yummy dinner.  I love eating breakfast for dinner but no one is my household eats “breakfast food” except for me! No one eats eggs...hubby doesn’t eat grits....we all eat bacon....and hash browns.

        • I rarely eat breakfast but when I do, bacon has to be on the plate somewhere! I do like feta cheese and spinach omelets on occasion, but mostly for lunch.

        • I asked about the lavender tea cakes as well!  I feel as if I may have to wear a hat while eating them, and I like the sound of that.

          My kids and I often have breakfast for dinner (we call it reverse dinner).  They always ask for framed eggs....when you make a hole in bread with a drinking glass, then fry an egg inside the hole.  And also fry the circle of bread in buttery goodness.  Mmmmmm.....this is making me want much more than the sickening smoothie on my desk right now.

        • Very easy to make Lavender Tea Cakes...and Mary, you could absolutely transform these into cupcakes.  I am also trying to incorporate Pomegranate Tea Cakes, and hub was willing to sample everything.happy

          Ingredients

              Cake:

              1 cup granulated sugar

              5 tablespoons butter or stick margarine, softened

              1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

              1 large egg

              1 large egg white

              1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

              1 teaspoon baking powder

              1/4 teaspoon baking soda

              1/4 teaspoon salt

              1 cup plain fat-free yogurt

              2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh lavender leaves

              Cooking spray

              Glaze:

              1/3 cup sifted powdered sugar

              1 teaspoon water

              1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

          Preparation

              Preheat oven to 350°.

              To prepare cake, beat granulated sugar, butter, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended (about 5 minutes). Add egg and egg white, 1 at a time; beat well after each addition. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir well. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture alternately with yogurt, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Stir in lavender.

              Pour the batter into an 8-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

              To prepare glaze, combine powdered sugar and remaining ingredients. Spread over hot cake. Cool in pan 20 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.

        • All this talk of lavender tea cakes is making me think of the book called “The Wildwater Walking Club” by Claire Cook. It’s cute if you haven’t read it yet.

        • It all sounds great. My favorite breakfast is french toast, turkey bacon, egg whites fried hard and laced with real maple syrup.
