Father's Day Breakfast

Father's Day 2011 was a food extravaganza! Starting the day was my very modest breakfast for two. The main event was Bacon and Tomato Cups from Melody's fabulous blog fibermania (which now has a sub-blog called fabu food!). Anyway, my cups had neither bacon nor tomatoes! I substituted canadian bacon for the bacon (6 slices, chopped), a few chopped red and yellow pepper slices for the tomatoes, and shredded jack-cheddar-mozzarella cheese for the Swiss. Get the picture? You can put whatever you like in these easy little bites!

By the way - for those you scoff at the idea of using mayo in these breakfast treats - instead of eggs - let me remind you: mayonaisse is made of ....oil and eggs. So there you go. Step one is above - chopping the canadian bacon (like my retro kitchen? complete with the slide-away cutting board).

These frozen chopped onions are a MUST HAVE in my freezer. Why cry over chopping onions, when someone else can do it for you???? By the way, this little corner of countertop? It's just about my only usable counterspace in my entire kitchen. To the left of the sink is my dish drainer, and...oh yeah, that's it. No more counterspace! Did I tell you, I have a retro kitchen? It's tiny, but I have cooked for as many as 40 for dinner.

Here are my able assistants, Dora (7 months) and Cohen (3 years). Once I started chopping canadian bacon, they were VERY close by! Cute, aren't they?

Also on the menu - Tuscan cantaloupe from Trader Joe's. It looked like a regular supermarket cantaloupe, but with deeper, darker green ridges in the rind, ... but the inside was the best part! Super juicy, fragrant, and deeply flavorful - yum! One of my favorite foods in the world!

Makes quite a nice breakfast, doncha think? Happy Father's Day!
