Breakfast Heathen Style

With as few words as possible, breakfast for two with leftover salsa cruda to have with chips at lunchtime:

If you can’t see it, the jar is celery seed.

The next photo got lost, but you know what grated cheese looks like.

Cut those into strips about 3/8″ wide and then in half, lengthwise. I lost that photo, too. Then fry ’em up a little darker than you’d make tortilla chips:

Three eggs in this case because they’re kinda small. But they’re very tasty, from hens who are fed cooked elk meat.

Melt cheese on strips in the broiler while the eggs are prepared over easy:

The one on the left is my homemade, fermented cayenne sauce. If you don’t have four to six weeks to wait, go with the one on the right. Or Cholula, or Frank’s, or even Tabasco.

With my cayenne sauce, that’s enough to be very hot. Adjust to taste. Then, finally:

    It does look delightful and appetizing. I’m envious, having only very rarely the what it takes to even eat breakfast, much less home-construct it. In the States, though, I never go a day without a lovely diner breakfast. Over hard, english muffin, scrapple, and coffee. And a newspaper. here you can dream about finding a US-style diner.
    Interesting to imagine you photographing each stage of the operation. The casual reader often forgets the work involved in creating a breakfast post like this.
    Anyway, with my new super-html powers, I can now say <FONT SIZE=6 YUMMY <FONT

      Wow. No diners there? That’s a drag, and a bit surprising. But then I guess that without our typical pork breakfast products it’d be more of a breakfast shop than a diner. The best part of walking into a diner at sunrise is the intertwined smells of bacon and coffee that hit you when the warm air rushes out, waking the appetite and giving promise to the new day.

      I was so proud of myself for capturing each step, but apparently on my phone if I close the camera app too quickly after snapping the photo it blows the image away. I’ve got one of the tortilla strips frying, too — through the steam on the lens. 😀

      It is a very yummy dish. And quick enough if you make the salsa cruda in advance — I usually make a gallon at a time, and then throw it at every darn thing for the next week. 🙂
