Haven’t had any Asian guests, or even Asian-Americans; if I did, I would offer Jook/Rice Congee – I use mushrooms in my version along with the usual ginger and chicken and various toppings. Jook isn’t an easy dish to make for only one or two, or to make in a hurry. I would make it crockpot style the night before, for ease of prep.
Now that we’re out of season, I’m evaluating the currrent menu for cost effectiveness, time effectiveness, popularity, etc. The Anglo-American and Cajun Omelet are the most expensive (about $2.35- $2.50 for two) The Tortilla de Patata was very popular this year; the Breakfast Burrito least popular.
I’m considering adding Shakshuka (eggs poached in Ro*tel for simplicity), and some sort of “pancake”, probably Staffordshire Oat Cakes, which I can offer with sweet or savory fillings.
If I know that people have dietary issues, I prepare dishes to meet those issues – non-dairy “milk”, arepas (corn cakes) rather than wheat bread, non-pork meats, etc. Here’s our current menu:
Two eggs, toast and chef-made marmalade, beans, sauteed mushrooms, bacon or sausage, red or green fried tomato.
Thick-cut challah bread French toast with Florida handmade cane syrup, bacon or sausage, and a seasonal fruit cup
Large flour or corn tortilla filled with eggs, sauteed peppers & onions, and cheese. Served with red or green salsa and sour cream
Three eggs filled with tangy Andouille sausage, shrimp, mushrooms and cheese; with a side of toast and chef-made marmalade
Biscuits and gravy with a fried ham slice, toast and chef-made marmalade
Creamy, dreamy, white cheesy grits with sausage or ham, and toast with chef-made marmalade
Scotch Eggs, steel-cut oatmeal, marmite soldiers and chef-made orange marmalade
Spanish Tortilla de Patata
Classic dish of fried potato slices and diced onion, smothered in beaten eggs, then finished in the oven.
Quiche Inna Cup
Well, a mug actually. Eggs, dairy, green onion, red bell pepper, and diced ham or bacon crumbles.
