Breakfast that I prepared the day before.

On school days, I wake up at 6am every morning, and I need to get my two daughters ready to school in 45 minutes.
I usually retire to bed quite late, so I don't think I can wake up earlier than 6am. Otherwise I will be yawning away like drug addict in the office.

Therefore, I would prepare breakfast the day before. Out of all, egg mayo sandwiches and french toast are the girls' favorites.

1. Egg mayo sandwiches.
I used Kewpie Mayonnaise Mild flavor, Naturel Margarine, 3 half boiled eggs, slices of cucumber and tomato, Massimo breads and pepper.
Mash hard boiled eggs, put in a dash of margarine, and then mix everything well with mayonnaise.
Get ready 2 pieces of breads, layer slices of cucumber on top of one bread, and slices of tomato on top of another bread, spread enough egg mayo on top of the veggie.
Put two slices of breads together and cut into 2 triangles.
I would usually serve this egg mayo sandwich as their bedtime snack, and keep some in the fridge as their breakfast on the next morning.

2. French toast.
I used Massimo breads, 2 eggs, condensed milk, Planta margarine, and castor sugar.
Whisk eggs well and mix well with condensed milk.
Dip breads into egg mixture and put breads in HCP, which has heated with a dash of margarine at medium fire. Flip over bread until both sides have turned brown. HCP is able to pan fry 4 breads at one go.
French toast was  ready to be served as my daughters' supper . They love having it with some sugar sprinkled on top.
I usually prepare more and keep some as their breakfast on the next morning.

Sometimes, I will bake cakes or muffins in the evening, and they get to have cakes and muffins as breakfast.

I take this opportunity to wish my Muslim friends Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri, Maaf Zahir & Batin, and my non Muslim friends Happy Holiday.

  2. Thanks for the tips, Yan! I think I can stand of waking up early to make breakfast occasionally but not everyday. I am not an early bug. the idea of preparing simple breakfast a night before is definitely a great solution. Thanks again

  7. My mother always made Egg Mayo paste and kept them in the fridge!! She would just take them out later to spread on the hot toasted bread, so the fillings were not cold anymore. My mum loved to cook but always find short cuts. She always had to cook one dish for the late Tunku Abdul Rahman to eat as Tunku could not find that simple dish in any Thai restaurants in Malaysia! Now I made Letchumi learn to cook that dish too!

    1. I do that too. I made them the night before and keep it in the fridge. The next morning, put it on toasted bread. :)

      Wah, your Mom cooked for the late TAR.

      Delete
    2. TM, you and your mother so famous one ka? The late TAR also know this Bollywood star? You mentioned you are best friend with Agnes Chang, wah~ 10 years later, I'm proud to tell my children that their mother is good friend with granny TM who is best friend with so many celebrities *eyes sparkled*

      Delete
    3. Why you made Letchumi learn? You make for her, la~ bring them to her bed every morning so every night you'll get extra service, ahem ahem.

    6. SP,
      masuk tender also ask TM to get YB recommendation can or not? hehehe

    7. Knowing those big shot is useless. Knowing you all makes me happier! My boss is YB and I look at him like idiot. LOL.
      You see my old blog of My Grandparents Wedding. My grand uncle was well known but I still had to buy movie tickets. Useless connections! Knowing Taiping bloggers make me damn happy. Everyday can laugh and soon got fresh biscuits coming. My wife so stunned to hear that you all are so kind and generous although we talk hamsap so much. Wakakakaka

  18. I was planning to make some eggmayo for my staff after the raya..
    do you think if I add some fresh chopped onions will be nice?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. no lah, don't put onions lah, it's nice for tuna mayo only.. for egg mayo, put finely chopped fresh parsely lah..

      Delete
    2. yeah, don't put onion in it lah....

      but you know, if people likes a bit of sweetness to their eggmayo sandwich, putting chopped red apples is quite nice too.

    3. Apart from egg mayo, I like sardine mayo (cannot afford tuna la... hehehe).

      I'd goreng some onions, put in sardines, cook for a while. Then after it all cool down, add mayo. Sedap. :)
