Breakfast Anyone?

My buddies at Theme Thursday have decided to interpret "breakfast" this week.  Well, last summer I shared with readers how I prepare breakfast when me and the guys go fishing.  I thought I'd repeat it for my TT buds today.  

Keep in mind: it's a guy thing...

If cholesterol be the food of love, stick a fork in me, turn me over and call me Eros.

This high caloric, cholesterol-laden concoction is swimming in fat, grease and guilt but, nom nom nom, it is sooo good.

Nonamedufus' Specials have become a yearly tradition with me and my fishin’ buddies. Each June several of us traipse into the wilds of the “near North” of Ontario to Lake Temagami once bass season opens. We tell our wives we’re roughin’ it and we kick back at a place called Loon Lodge and watch satellite TV, drink beer, eat huge Lodge-prepared dinners, enjoy the sun and swat at the odd black fly. Oh, yeah, sometimes we actually fish.

Provisions for our fishing folly are procured ahead of time at the grocery, liquor and beer stores in North Bay about an hour away from Lake Temagami. The local economy (particularly the beer store) gets a considerable boost from 4 guys headed out for 8 days on the lake. Now the dinners are provided by the Lodge. So that leaves 2 other meals and snacks that the guys are responsible for. Deli meats, pickled eggs, chips, pretzels and hot dogs are the usual staples for lunch and snacks. But breakfast is another matter entirely.

In the late of the evening - well, actually, long before dinner - after a long, hard day out on the lake the guys break out the beer and the booze, sit back and shoot the breeze about the one that got away or deride the one guy who didn’t catch anything. We’re close like that – hey, two of these guys are my brothers. With a break for dinner, the discussing – and the drinking – continues until the moon rises and the call of the loon beckons us to our beds.

In the morning, it’s sometimes difficult to get moving for some reason. Here’s where the Nonamedufus' Specials come into play. The bread, the grease and the cholesterol counteracts the effects of the booze and simply soaks it up. A side of tomato juice is the perfect accompanying breakfast beverage, spiked or au natural. Of course after each of us eating two of these there’s a rush to see who can get to the bathroom first. But once our business is done, we’re fresh, revived and ready to face another beer, er, ah, day!

Here’s how you can make your own Nonamedufus' Specials:
-turn stove burner to #3
- melt, butter, margarine or cooking spray in pan
- cook bacon (2 strips per special) (low sodium back bacon can be substituted by wusses)
- cook eggs easy-over in same pan using grease from bacon
- place slice of cheddar cheese on egg when egg is flipped and let melt
- cut and toast English muffins
- add salt and pepper while eggs cooking
- place 2 slices of bacon and 1 egg with cheese on open English muffin
- put other half of English muffin on top
- voila, a feast fit for a king size hangover
- can be served with a side of fried potatoes (also cooked in bacon grease) and a glass of orange or tomato juice

Happy eating!

I think it is what they call around these parts a "belly-buster"

Alan: Nothing better to get your day started!
Don said…
Those look delicious. Unfortunately, I have a bad habit of trying to avoid such foods. I don't want to have to "pay" for that stuff all at once. Sure does look tasty as hell though!!!
nonamedufus said…
Don: Sometimes the worst things for you just taste the best!
Me-Me King said…
There's something about breakfast foods which cannot be denied. The smell of bacon frying, the sound of eggs cracking...damn, I'm hungry!
VE said…
Fresh fish? Yum.
nonamedufus said…
VE: Actually the fish is pretty good, if we're lucky enough to catch some. Battered and deep fried for dinner...yum.
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: It's a fun week. Been doing the fishin' trip for about 10 years now. Lotsa fun.

"If cholesterol be the food of love, stick a fork in me, turn me over and call me Eros." Indeed.

Gotta say, it sounds good. Horribly unhealthy, but good.

My entry is up here.
nonamedufus said…
PattiKen: It's a nice change. Couldn't eat this every day!
Brian Miller said…
i will be carrying around the extra weight all day from reading these...
nonamedufus said…
Brian: At least you're not carrying the extra weight from eating them.
Christine H. said…
I'll take two...and no wussy stuff! And some hot sauce, please.
nonamedufus said…
Christine H: Now you're talking! Coming up.
RA said…
I'll go fishing with yoy anytime! Do you provide lunch as well? :)
My husband makes unhealthy stuff like that, all the time. The first time he made these, I turned my nose up, but OMG they're great!!!!

I'm following from Me-Me King's. Great blog!
Kelly said…
That looks disgusting and I KNOW it tastes like heaven. Just like the tacos from Jack-in-the-Box. You don't want to look too closely at them but they sure taste great!
nonamedufus said…
RA: Lunch? You bet! We might even do some fishing.
nonamedufus said…
Hissyfits: They're great. Who says men can't cook! Thanks for dropping by. I'm happy Me-Me sent you my way.
nonamedufus said…
Kelly: Guys don't worry about long as it tastes good.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
