  • this morning for breakfast..

    I prepared a dish I haven't had since childhood.

    Two pans: In 1st saute chopped up bacon. In 2nd poach fish (either whole, cleaned or fillets) in lightly salted water.
    When fish is done, remove to a platter and pour the bacon & grease over the top.

    So delicious! Most people are horrified by the fat but I knew you guys wouldn't be. Hadn't thought of this in years. Apparently my childhood (on an island) was fairly primal.

    My childhood breakfast choices were chocolate pop-tarts or frozen waffles. Then again, nobody ever told me life was fair.

      While I dislike getting older, I count myself lucky to have been born into a pre-Poptart world. Good thing you discovered real food on your own!

        That sounds so delicious!

        My breakfasts as a child were:

        Chocolate milk with an egg blended in it because I hated eggs, and my mom thought I should eat some.
        Scrambled eggs when I grew out of hating eggs and grew to love them. Weekends would be bacon and fried eggs (sometimes SPAM).
        Instant Breakfast when I stopped liking food in the morning and my mom refused to let me go to school on an empty stomach.

        But no fish and bacon. I feel deprived.

          As a child, my breakfasts were vegan. Yeah...

                You know, my husband suggested that next time we take the poached fish off the bone and add it to the pan of chopped bacon & fat. Also a bit of the poaching liquid mixing with the fat makes a nice sauce.

                I'm so sorry that some of you were fed Pop-tarts and those nasty frozen waffles!

                  We had cereal during the week, but my mother used to fix breakfast on the weekends. She made unbelievable cinnamon toast, eggs scrambled with bacon, cheddar cheese, and crumbled rosemary. My father made jelly omelets, the only thing he ever cooked. We ate it but thought that was kind of weird.

                    My childhood breakfasts were all healthywholegrain cereals like Kashi or shredded wheat with non fat milk. Is it any wonder I was always sneaking butter snacks?

                    That fish sounds awesome. I have been eating canned fish a lot lately as a mid morning snack.

                      Fish and bacon....mmmmm.... a mighty combination!

                      This is a great recipe for combining the two and is real comfort food. You can leave out the potatoes for primalness!

                        My mom used to keep a mug of bacon fat in the fridge to fry everything with! But we still had cereal for breakfast as children.

                        Today I had primal banana pancakes-may have to lay off these for a while..delicious but too high in sugar for me.

                          Fish and bacon sounds fantastic ... I'll work this idea in for breakfast some time.

                          My childhood breakfast was porridge. Just porridge and only porridge ... only ever porridge.

                          Now, I tend not to "breakfast", preferring a shell/fish salad around noon. Weekends, I'll have a late breakfast around 10 or 11 AM in place of lunch. I like fish - smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, fish fillet with a poached egg, seaside greens, kippers, that sort of thing.

                            My favourite childhood breakfasts were what my Mum called "bubble and squeak", basically she would beat an egg, add leftover veges and fry it all up (probably in dripping or butter, now I know it's all primal).

                            Or mince on toast.

                            I'm pretty sure we didn't breakfast like this every day, since I also have many memories of porridge, weetbix and burnt toast. Actually I kind of liked that.

                              Froot Loops, Sugar Frosties, Coco Pops, or plain rice bubbles or Wheat Bix if we were broke. Porridge occasionally in winter with lots of golden syrup and the cream off the top of the milk. Yum.

                              Bacon and eggs were a treat, but only accompanied by lots of toast (to make the expensive bacon go further).

                              Nowdays it's eggs by themselves or with bacon/meat and/or veg, and cooked with fat. How times change.

                              Don't think I am up for fish for brekky though....
