T / all the breakfasts

I think it’s my favourite meal.  No, I know it’s my favourite meal.  I document it fairly regularly.  It’s a ritual for me.  There’s a reason why I hauled a waffle iron back to Cambodia.  And went to look for a transformer just so I could use it.  I might also search high and low for the best eggs menemen in Istanbul.  It took me about 20-ish years to accept the fact that my parents ate rice for breakfast.  But when I finally moved continents and understood why, an entirely new world of options opened up to me.  And when I got to invade Cait’s life in LA, we made sure a morning at Sqirl (and Dinette!) was a priority.  The meal is a goddamn institution for me.  I’m also more than a little bit annoyed that I didn’t discover sausage gravy and biscuits until I was 30.

I get that a long sit-down meal at the crack of dawn isn’t quite what people have time for.  Heck, I have pre-made breakfast smoothies and cold slices of quiche for five out of seven days of the week.  But for the two days I actually get to enjoy the meal, I go a little bit nuts. Particularly when I get to make it myself.

So I assembled the greatest hits for you.
