Breakfast of Champions # 73 – Schwäbisches Bauernfrühstück ( Swabian Farmers Breakfast )

:

Farmers Breakfast

:
:
If you wonder what constitutes a “Farmers Breakfast”, the answer is simple – anything that farmers usually, or often, ate for breakfast.
Keep in mind that in times past, this more often than not was food which did not have to be bought in stores (there was little or no cash, people ate what their farm produced or what could be bartered in exchange for the farms products). It also had to be very substantial, because it was the meal that mostly gave you energy during the whole day, especially during harvest season, when the farmers left in the morning to tend the fields and/or the animals. These days mostly stretched from dusk ´til dawn, and the only other meal during that time would be a small vesper of bread, cheese, sausage, water, cider or wine and an apple or a pear.
So, bread or potatoes and some form of protein, such as homemade bacon, ham and/or sausage, eggs, milk, cheese and sometimes coffee was the standard. Also, very often a simple porridge of any grain with bread on the side had to suffice at least a few times a week.

One of the “Bauernfrühstück” which old-fashioned farts like myself still appreciate these days is the dish featured on this page. It can be done with any protein, meat or pickled fish. Fish, of course, would be likely for farmers (or fisherman) living close to the sea, where livestock was not as widespread as on farms which were situated further inland. And in case one is not a fan of “Blutwurst” (Whats wrong with you ??? 🙂 , one can substitute with liverwurst, which is the perfect substitute in my opinion), as well as beef hash, spam, or any other pate/sausage which disintegrates when heated.
This dish is so tasty that it features in many restaurants in Bavaria, Swabia and especially in Austria and Tirol, where its name is “Gröstl” (there, it is usually served with a fried egg on top). I personally prefer the eggs mixed-in, but hey – shoot me. 🙂

Black Pudding And Potato Salad Turnovers…..(Schwäbishe Teigtaschen Mit Blutwurst, Kartoffelsalat Und Röstzwiebeln)

>
>
These  pretty babies are a happy concoction of some of my beloved food items :
Blutwurst ( black pudding/blood pudding/morcilla), Swabian potato salad (schwäbisher kartoffel salad), röstzwiebeln (smothered or fried onions), good quality mustard, fiery chilies, and thin sheets of dough to wrap it all and bake to crispy goodness. 🙂

P.S.
For this dish I have used  Argentinian style morcilla, which is widely available here in South Florida. A better fit would be  Schwäbishe  blutwurst, which melts when heated and spreads out better within the crispy wrap. But taste-wise, the morcilla I used is about the same.

P.P.S.
I love to serve this with hot chilies to cut through the richness of the filling. If this is too spicy for you, serve the turnovers with a side of green salad.

Morcilla And Garbanzos

>
>
Friday  night I had my good friend Curtis over for dinner. I made a dish which one usually would not think of serving to friends for dinner, unless they are Latino, Swabian, Austrian (or in any other way weird) 🙂
But honestly, serving Morcilla (Blutwurst, Blood pudding, Blood Sausage, Boudin Noir) to guests requires that you either know their taste in food very well or that you are silly  and take a great risk and probably end up ordering take-out pizza:-)
However, Curtis was happy with the dish and so were Bella and I. I actually  thought it was wonderful and very special.

Morcilla  lovers – this dish is a knock-out !
As far as morcilla dishes go, it does not get much better, I can assure you 🙂
I know that not everybody shares my love for morcilla, but for those who do, this soup is magic.

Morcilla –
(blood pudding, blutwurst, boudin noir, sanguinaccio, blodkorv, boldpølse, kaszanka).

If you do re-create this dish, make sure the dumplings are as light as possible but holding their shape. The should easily fall apart when lightly pressed with a spoon.
If you are not a fan of morcilla, you can use any other protein such as fish, seafood, veal, game, pork or even finely diced vegetables.
