Weekend breakfast blogging (WBB) is the brainchild of lovely Nanditha of Saffron trail who is traveling right now in the beautiful locales of Karnataka, India and she gave me the opportunity to guest host this fortnight’s event.
I am not a morning person and weekends generally start around noon for me, which does not usually include breakfast. But I have to say; weekend breakfast WBB event has changed the look of my weekend mornings. Now it’s either I’m thinking of what to make for the WBB event or looking through the recipes in the round up to make them myself (my husband is very happy because of this change).
I would like to thank Nandita for giving me this opportunity and all of you for participating with mouth watering recipes. Heres the round up (drum roll please….)
Bread and Pancakes:
Ange of Viciousange, from Melbourne, Australia, makes her Pancakes US style, fat and gorgeous. She says she loves pancakes and keeps trying new recipes. Ange, keep looking for those perfect pancakes and keep us posted. 🙂
Jenjen of Milk and cookies, from Sydney, Australia, sent her rustic, easy to make Pumpkin and Sunflower scones. I am glad that scones are her newfound attraction, this means that we will get to see and learn more of her scones. U go girl…
Krithika of Manpasand, from U.S, tells us about shopping with her cute 5 year old twins and how she ends up with things that she never picked up. But I’m glad she ended with more blueberries than needed to make these yummy Banana-Blueberry muffins.
Meeta of whats for lunch honey , from Germany, sent her simple to make, soft and fluffy Blueberry buttermilk pancakes. This dish also comes with a warning that people with kids will have to more of these pancakes or eat them when the kids are not around. LOL…
Zorra of 1x umruehren bitte, from Andalucia, Spain, sent in her Lemon ricotta Fiorini. She says she wanted to make something special for WBB and made these wonderful fiorinis. I will start looking for those cute little fiorini-silicone molds.
South Indian Breakfast recipes: Idli and dosa are typical South Indian breakfast items (I should probably say anytime staple item). I did not know that there are so many different ways of making them. Here are some of the many variations.
Other Breakfast items: One good thing about food blog events is that you get to learn more about other cuisines. Each country/region has its own distinct palate and here are some of the very typical Indian and International breakfast recipes.
Praveena of The Clothed Cook, from Melbourne Australia, has sent a very typical Indian recipe, Semya Upma. She says she struggles to answer people who ask about her breakfast because she is not sure how to explain what idli or dosa is to an Aussie. I hear you Praveena, we sometimes have the same problem here.
Madhuli of My Foodcourt, sent in Bhakricha Kala (Spiced Jowar roti w/ curd), a recipe originating from the rural farming communities of Maharashtra. This is a fast, easy, nutritious and filling recipe. If any recipe is described by more than 3 adjectives, you should just make it yourself.
Ashwini of Food for Thought, from U.S, sent her Grilled Sprouts sandwich, which are packed with tons of protein and flavor. She says that the filling has a ‘street snack taste’, which makes these sandwiches even more delicious.
This is from another Priya of Akshayapaatram, from Cincinnati, who sent in her Mom’s Wheat rava khichdi/ Dahlia Upma recipe. She took time from her busy schedule in school to send us this nutritious recipe.
Ulrike, of Küchenlatein, from Kronshagen, Germany, sent her Summer Porridge recipe. She says that she is the only one in her family who likes porridge and I’m glad that she does and we get to see her beautiful fruit filled porridge.
Eggs: Eggs are universal breakfast item and it looks like every one of us has our own signature egg recipe.
Shaheen of Malabar spices, from New Jersey, sent her Garlic-Parsley toast with spinach omelet. She uses malabar spinach, grown in her own backyard (how about that!!), in the omelet. Great way to add extra nutrition in your breakfast.
Haalo of Cook (almost) anything at least once, from Melbourne, Australia, sent her Mediterranean Scrambled Eggs recipe. Reading the ingredients itself is working up my appetite; slow roasted baby tomatoes, fresh basil and goat cheese; can this get any better.
Finally, it’s yours truly’s, Potato and Mushroom Hash. This is a quick and easy, “clean up your refrigerator” recipe.
Thank you all again for participating and see you at Nandita’s blog for WBB# 5.
All of you in U.S, have a safe Labor day weekend and for all the others have a great weekend. Adios Amigos.
