I am a cooking a Fancy Breakfast as I type this, so I think we are past the heat of summer where our breakfasts are less than fancy. Jack played five games in six days last week and part of his pregame ritual was to eat a bowl of frosted shredded wheats. (King Soopers Brand.) Look, I’m not here to mess with any baseball related superstitious rituals. And its been way too hot to cook. But we did eat a few non-cereal meals last week, and they were delicious and did not involve the oven, so I’ll share those recipes.
I made a giant vat of this barbecue sauce from Smitten Kitchen/Ina Garten. Dave grilled some chicken legs to go with the sauce.
Last night I made the tater tot waffle recipe from Food and Wine and topped them with either smoked salmon and crème fraîche or a fried egg. (The recipe is just “buy tater tots and smash them together in a waffle maker”.) That was fun and decadent and did not involve the oven, although I did slave over a hot waffle maker.
Next week.. The Return of Fancy Breakfast Friday!
