Ham, Cheese, and Steamed Egg Croissant

Having breakfast today at Atlas Cafe because I am too lazy to make it myself. Luckily, they make the most delicious breakfast croisant sandwich. They steam their eggs, which is kind of like scrambled, but they are super fluffy. White cheddar cheese and black forest ham on a super flaky buttery croisant. Add some tapatio (hot sauce), salt, and pepper,and it is an unstoppable combo. I'd make this myself, but the recipe I found for croisants in the Tartine Cookbook is 5 pages long and takes at least two days.

Potato and Carrot Medley With Watercress

Another simple recipe using basic ingredients. I used a purple potato for this, which gave the dish a nice color, but you can pretty much use anything. This is actually way tastier than it looks. This is modified slightly from the Joy of Cooking. Boil:    3 medium potatoes, washed and cut into small pieces    3 carrots, peeled and cut into small pieces Cook for about half an hour, or until the veggies are very soft. Drain them, and put them back in a pan over low heat.

Caramalized Onions

A very basic recipe, but delicious. Goes well on lots of dishes. I've cooked with onions for all sorts of things, but I never realized they could taste so good until I had this. Melt over the lowest possible possible heat:    1 tablespoon butter    1 tablespoon olive oil    salt Add:    1 onion, thinly sliced    salt Cook for one hour, stirring every once in a while. Keep the heat as low as possible for the entire hour.

A Nice Simple Breakfast

I never used to eat much breakfast as a kid. Sometimes I would have a bagel, or an English muffin, but usually I didn't even eat anything. Now I love it, and try to eat as big and well rounded one as I can. Today I had a kiwi, strawberry yogurt, rosemary scrambled eggs, and rosemary wheat bread with butter. Eggs were pretty simple.

Sauce Bechamel

As one of the four "Mother Sauces", I use this quite a bit. Â I use the recipe from the Joy of cook, although it can be modefied in quite a few ways. Combine in a small saucepan over very low heat:    1 1/4 cups milk    1/4 onion with 1 bay leaf stuck to it using 2 whole cloves    Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg Simmer gently for 15 minutes, and then discard the onion.
