    Imagine the most decadent breakfast possible. Cinnamon buns? Scones? Or something sweeter, more gooey?

    I desperately need help planning such a breakfast. The only limit: it has to travel well and needs to be eaten without a plate or a fork.


    Any thoughts? Recipes?



    Thanks!

    Very fancy muffins, like mini coffee cakes with maybe a fruit or cheesecake or chocolate swirl or centre, and a crumble topping.

    Mini quiches.

    Something like -- I forget what they're called -- those Middle Eastern turnover things, with spinach and feta cheese inside, or seasoned soft cheese. (Oh, I love those things! They sell them at our local market, and they make a GREAT breakfast!)

    Decadent? I am not sure I understand. Does this word has another meaning than the one I know?

    Anyway , since you want something really sweet.
    Prepare the filling for the backlava and instead of using a pan , prepare small rolls of backlava.
    You can add chocolate chips in the baclkava mixture that they will melt during baking.
    Be carefull not to make the syrop too sweet in that case

    OR

    make small triangles( like tyropitakia-tiny cheese pies) of baclava and cover them with chocolate.

    I wonder if there is something more decadent than eating chocolate baclava in the morning LOL

    Some thoughts:

    Choc dipped strawberries;
    Small cream puffs--half dipped in chocolate;
    Warm breakfast burritos filled w/sausage, scrambled eggs, cheese;
    Quesedillias filled with thin-sliced prime rib, grilled onions, peppers, scrambled eggs, and sharp cheddar;
    Mango salsa served with the above two items;
    Roasted rosemary new potatoes;
    fat tender pieces of roasted asparagus;
    skewered fruit laced with fresh pineapple, berries; jicama, ham chunks, and/or shrimp (roast the filled skewers for a minute with a honey/fresh jalapeno sauce);
    Rolled pancakes or french toast fingers served with a warm brandy dunking sauce.

    Nothing, and I mean nothing, sounds more decadent than cut-up items such as fresh fruit and french toast bites with a big container of Russian cream. A breakfast fondue, if you will.

    Picking up on CompassRose and Henry:

    Really buttery puff pastry turnovers OR cream puffs filled with
    -- truffled soft-scrambled eggs
    -- soft-scrambled eggs and caviar
    -- eggs + Tallegio cheese + diced proscuitto
    -- grilled vegs, with or without cheese (would have to be a very soft cheese, since cooled-down melted can be yuckey)
    -- Turkish "brik" with the egg yolk that oozes out when you bite.

    Since Isa's original post also mentioned "sweeter, more gooey", I assumed we will have, at the mininum, napkins for this breakfast? Right?


    Where are we having this breakfast and why don't we have plates and forks? However, I am sure that I could manage to eat any of the above items sans plate or fork, but pleeease, give me a napkin!

    I could go for a cup of hot chocolate made with Droste's cocoa. A mixture of cream and half and half would be scalded and added gradually to a cocoa - sugar mixture and stirred not shaken, to allow the cocoa to absorb the liquid fully. Add the slurry back to the pan and heat NOT to the boiling point. Then pour into your favorite cup and drink.

    I love high fat cocoa with a side order of croissants - made with butter. The diabetic gods will love me.

    No thanks, Athaeneus, the baklava I eat is not made with chocolate.

    I really hate to admit this ----I love sausage and egg mcmuffins, it's the only thing about McD. that I like. And also sugar raised donuts. I realize I'm really not contributing any help, and I sound like the ad council for the high fat and cholesterol diet, but really, I only eat like that once in a while. Oh, the decadence!


    I love making cinnamon rolls out of croissant dough. There a less gooey version than regular cinnamon rolls but more buttery. Rugulah is good too, as well as coffeecake type of bundts with cinnamon chocolate streusel filling.:D
