Breakfast of Champions

Breakfast October 1-8th was a wonderful way to start the month and each day!

Monday October 1: Smoked Salmon with Sauteed Kale and Leek Fritters and Lemon Cream

I love smoked salmon, I was raised on bagels and lox every Sunday before Sunday school so adding this brought back a piece of my childhood and made me smile, it was a creative New York type of breakfast minus the bagel, however, the fritters were pretty darn tasty!

Tuesday October 2: Pumpkin Apple Quinoa Oatmeal

I was introduced to Quinoa two years ago from my old nutritionist who tried to get me to try new things all of the time, so when I saw this item on the menu I thought “hmm,” and the pumpkin apple compote together was a great taste of fall! Loved this a winning breakfast for sure!

Wednesday October 3: Crust-Less Tomato, Basil And Quinoa Quiche

Quinoa again however to have it used as a crust-less quiche was *fingers in air, wonderful, and everyone knows I’m a tomato and basil type of girl.

Thursday October 4: Corn cakes with caper & chive cream cheese and smoked salmon

Another creative New York style breakfast but with corn cakes this time, just as tasty as Mondays, but today we had cream cheese and chives which i love so I’m going to have to say I think this day was the winner.

Friday October 5: Polenta Breakfast Pudding With Apple Compote

Another great fall type of breakfast. I love how Chef Weldon is mixing in all of the seasonal flavors.

Saturday October 6: Spanish Tortilla With Smoked Salmon And Grilled Tomatos

What a creative way to serve the tortilla, in muffin shapes, this looked wonderful plated and made me feel like I was eating breakfast at a spa… Ohhhh how I wish I was, but the cuisine was definitely spa worthy!

Sunday October 7: Smoked Trout And Corn Souffle With Fresh Grapefruit Wedges

I can honestly say I don’t think I have ever eaten trout for breakfast however it was very savory in the souffle.

That was the first week of the month and it was a culinary treat every morning, I can hardly wait to see what the rest of the month holds in store for me, napkins please…
