Linderhof


Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas


Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Breakfasts

Saturday and now Sunday
are our days for
breakfasts.

Real breakfasts!

The rest of the week we have juice, cereal and toast
with tea and coffee

We've run the gamut of
traditional breakfasts
except
we haven't yet had a Dutch Baby
(or German Baked Pancake
or David Eyre Pancake)
or
French Toast

Perhaps next week!

Some favorites:


WAFFLES
From scratch not a mix
Betty Crocker's recipe
made in my 50+ year old waffle iron
A wedding gift from my mother!


SOUTHERN
Scrambled eggs, sausages, cheese grits and fresh from the oven biscuits


SEMI-SOUTHERN
Which means meat, biscuits and eggs
without grits
The meat this time is ham
And I do think ham is Husband Jim and my favorite
breakfast meat


BISCUITS AND GRAVY
Need I say more
Homemade biscuits, of course,
with a creamy sausage gravy
It is definitely comfort food on a plate!


FULL ENGLISH
This is the breakfast we so enjoyed in England
sausages (real English sausages), beans (Heinz in the blue can), eggs
served over a piece of fried bread
Toast in the toast cooler (Jim likes really hot toast -- the "toast cooler"
cools it off faster and it is his nickname for the toast rack that you find
on every English breakfast table)


MUFFINS
I prefer blueberry and I think they pair really well with a
big plate of scrambled eggs with chives.
A simpler breakfast than most
And one that is not always limited to Saturday.
The leftover muffins go really well with tea!

We always eat in the breakfast room
because it is the breakfast room
And our china is Johnson Brothers Indies --
it is our breakfast china!

We enjoy a second cup of coffee and tea
and often watch the birds for a while
before we begin our day --
especially on the weekend when we have a 
BIG BREAKFAST!

Every plate looks delicious. I've never had an English breakfast. Would be fun to try!

It's now dinner time for me and I am thinking about Brinner, breakfast for dinner.

This post made me so hungry. I think breakfast for dinner may be in store for us this evening.
