I used to be munching down my breakfast this morning and thought concerning the means of getting it from the kitchen to the stomach. So a lot of what we do in there may be now by rote. In placing all of it collectively in my thoughts, I spotted what a manufacturing had occurred to make a easy jap omelette and a toasted English muffin.
Now, I am not going to enter how the English muffin is made. That is simply overkill. Besides, it got here from the market in a purchase one, get one free buy. But nonetheless, it requires some work simply not a lot thought. Look on the knife that was used to chop it. Maybe the muffin was marketed to be fork-split. I do not belief that. I need two items of equal dimension and width, and that requires a fairly sharp, serrated knife. Then to toast it to perfection, a toaster or toaster oven is required. I do not personal a toaster. The toaster oven has so many different makes use of that I selected to have one in my kitchen. I am contemplating a change, although. Maybe it’s the age of this small equipment of mine, however it would not toast like I need it to. Anyway, all that to make a easy toasted English muffin. I guess you by no means gave it that a lot thought.
I like omeletes. And though an omelette is totally different from an Eastern, they’ve related traits. Eggs and meat, and that’s all that’s required, however not all that’s desired. The omelette has some veggies and a few cheese typically. The selection is infinite. The Eastern is extra easy. Ground ham and an egg. If you need it to be a Western, then grate in some onion. It sounds so easy, however when deconstructed, it isn’t. The ham was one thing that was taking on room within the fridge. Hauling it out, some I chunked up for a casserole, I some left on the bone for pea soup, and a few bought floor up for ham salad, and Easterns and Westerns.
The grinding of the ham wants the assistance of a chopper of some sort. I used my meals processor. Smaller batches do up effectively with the mini chopper, however this time it was a bigger portion. Purists may put it on the chopping block and hand chop. I am not so inclined. Rather, I am lazy. I do not thoughts after I can put the bowl and blade within the dishwasher. I hate handy wash that equipment.
So as soon as we have now the bottom ham and the soup is on to simmer, it is time to make the Eastern. How a lot ham is determined by the variety of eggs. I merely combine the 2 in a espresso cup. It’s closest at hand. One egg is sufficient, and about an oz of ham, however I used to be hungry at the moment. I used two eggs and a heaping spoonful of floor meat. Melt a bit butter in a fry pan or skillet and drop it in over medium warmth. Give it a flip once you see the egg is beginning to come collectively, however don’t stir. If you stir, you will have scrambled egg with an addition of ham. Our household places this egg disc on toast with a wholesome smear of ketchup. I opted to eat it on a plate with my English muffins. And sure, a bit ketchup. I don’t make my very own ketchup however have considered it.
So my easy breakfast is simply easy due to the advances of merchandise for the kitchen. We can complicate it by making ketchup or English muffins, however for now, I am glad. Should I point out the home-made apricot jam on the muffins?
