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!
Donnie 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!
Ed 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 presentation...as long as it tastes good.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
