Lasang Pinoy 7: Gising na! ALMUSAL! The round up...

It's time for the round up of the 7th edition of Lasang Pinoy! I was honored to be asked to host and I hope I've been able to make you guys enjoy some of your "old favorites" when it comes to that wonderful meal known affectionately as Pinoy Breakfast. I know I enjoyed, not only making (and eating!) one of my beloved Filipino breakfasts, but also reading all the wonderful entries! Each one provides a succulent shade, a glorious brushstroke, to the masterpiece of the Pinoy Breakfast. So enough chat...here are the entries...


The Puto, Mangga ug Sikwate (Rice Pudding, Mango & Hot Cocoa) served up by the world-traveller Sha of Wanderlust. Who can resist hot chocolate, for breakfast or otherwise? All the way in Greece, her breakfasts brought back memories of her childhood in Cebu.






Tuyo! I had to enter with my all time favorite Pinoy Breakfast (longanisa being a close second). I had this delicious salted and dried fish with garlic fried rice (sinangag) and fried quail's eggs. Suffice to say that it didn't last long after this picture was taken, as it was attacked by one hungry breakfast-eater!




Karen of the popular The Pilgrim's Pots and Pans has another yummy version of tuyo...with fresh and creamy carabao's milk poured over steaming rice! Read about a traditional Filipino breakfast with a "pre-meal" followed by the breakfast proper...we sure know how to eat breakfast over here! A very informative entry as always Karen :)


Midge over at Sybaritic Diversions joins Lasang Pinoy for the first time...hooray Midge! Just in time for breakfast! She shares with us her favorite: Tosilog. Ah yes, the famous 'silogs...this one with tocino, fried egg, sinangag (fried rice), and some achara on the side. To top it all off? Kapeng Barako of course!




Blogging from the UK, Mae of the luscious Rice and Noodles makes her own Skinless Longanisa. I have never made my own longanisa before...now I must. Mae makes it seem all very easy. Served (of course!) with fried rice and some red onion salsa...yum! Look at those little sausages glisten...such a mouth watering picture Mae! You tempt us all!




Another Pinoy breakfast favorite pops up at Pinoy Food Talk, care of Sassy: Pan de Sal! Served with kesong puti (white cheese), one of my favorite pan de sal fillings...hunger definitely setting in at this point...




And over at Pinoy Cook, our very own Connie (aka Sassy same as above) shares this delicious looking Potato Omelet. A dish she learned from her father and now enjoyed immensely by her kids. Hmmm, I would enjoy it too!



All who attended the Market Manila EB will remember the yummy homemade ensaimada Marketman gave out as gifts. Well, for this month's Lasang Pinoy he gives us the recipe too! This ensaimada is really a labor of love and a family effort. Read the poignant first post for a wonderful ensaimada story...




And now how about a warm welcome to a new Pinoy food blogger, Kusinera Wannabe, blogging from California. She shares with us her favorite almusal...paksiw and sinangag. The sinangag reminds her of her grandmother. It seems breakfast brings back childhood memories for a lot of us...




A slice of breakfast bounty from Jmom of In Our Kitchen: Potato and Ground Beef Torta! Definitely a breakfast to get you going. She takes you through farming and frugality and how it led to this wonderful looking, and I'm sure, equally wonderful tasting torta :)




Dexie the Ilocana Chef braves morning sickness and pregnancy exhaustion to whip up a scrumptious almusal: Scrambled Eggs with Ampalaya, Longanisa and Sinangag. She also shares an endearing breakfast story from when she and her husband were still dating...




Relly, based in France, and blogging from the Franco-Pinay Food Adventure, shares with us her the almusal her mother used to prepare for her during her younger years...a tummy-warming meal of sinangag and daing (the daing which she makes from scratch!). She also puts together a list of Filipino breakfast foods...



Ces of essenCes expertly prepares another version of our famous 'silogs...Pusitlog! Another entry recalling sweet memories of breakfasts past prepared by mom :) Served with tomato omelet and sinangag cooked, not only with garlic, but also with scallions and bacon (YUM!)...and to drink? Coffee with whipped cream and cinnamon, and orange juice (a delicious little twist on tradition).


Celia Kusinera, based in the UK, and mistress of English Patis, makes Pan de Sal from scratch...I can almost smell it from here! Check out the picture of the dough proofing...looks like a beautiful mushroom :) Sigh...baking pan de sal from scratch is another in a long list of 2006 food resolutions for me. Celia, thanks for the recipe and please send some over! Heehee :)



From the blog Edible Experiments in Beijing, Iska prepares another example of our yummy 'silogs...Tosilog! She also gives a run down of the other 'silogs out there. Hmmm...pakaplog anyone? Thanks Iska, that's the first time I've come across that one! :)



Angelo from Saskatoon, Canada puts together a tempting spread of dilis and dried pusit (squid), with garlic fried rice and itlog ensalada (a salad of tomatoes and egg) on his blog Eat Matters...with a few tips on keeping the fishy smell (from frying our dried delicacies) at bay. He also adds another entry for Lasang Pinoy (Lasang Pinoy 7.01) of Pinamalhan (how industrious!)...check it out!





CJ, in the USA, of CJ's Food & Discovery (now CJ's Food Fantasy), puts together another 'silog: longanisa, dilis, fried rice, and itlog na maalat (salted egg). A complete breakfast! What should we call this CJ? Longdilisilog? :) Any way you call it, it spells a delicious almusal!




Tina in New Jersey blogs about tuyo (tuyo lovers unite!) at the Choppingboard. She serves her tuyo with eggs and fried rice with kalkag (dried salted shrimps). Sounds great Tina! As with a lot of Lasang Pinoy 7 entries, mom's influence reigns once more. Moms and breakfasts seem to go hand in hand :)




Back in the Philippines, in Quezon City, Lani of Chibog Chicka Lakwacha ATBP blogs about eggs and the roles it plays in various Pinoy breakfasts. Aside from featuring a couple more 'silogs, she also whips up a corned beef omelet, which she likens to tortang giniling, and is a favorite of her son.



Kai in Pangasinan, of the sweet blog Bucaio, tells an enthralling tale of her family's chocolate-making history. The perfect story to go with a decadent cup of hot Tsokolate. The perfect Pinoy breakfast for the sweet tooth in all of us. Kai, I was transported by your story!



Stef of Stefoodie.net get inspired and prepares a Trio of 'Silogs. I had some problems uploading a picture but let me assure you the pictures will have you drooling so check them out! Stef prepares tapsilog, longsilog, and tosilog for her little black-belters after big tournaments.

Mila at Watergirl (my first entry!) give us a list of heavenly breakfast foods as an answer to the hypothetical question: "What would be your first meal in heaven?" It is a heavenly list indeed so please do not read when hungry lest violent tummy-churning occurs. I love how she refers to tsokolate..."dark, bold tsokolate ah/eh/i/o/u".

Divagap emailed in her thoughts on Filipino breakfasts which I am including here:
When I was in the Phils. my favorite breakfast is tortang itlog and kamatis, longanisa , tinapang bangus, rice and of course coffee. The thing is I don't drink the coffee, I pour it over my rice(plain boiled rice not sinangag but I guess you can use this, too). Yes I "sabaw" it in my rice. I really love this combination of coffee, rice and eggs with tomatoes, tinapang bangus and of course longanisa or langonisa as I call it.
MORE ENTRIES:
Mike of Lafang shares with us a wonderful breakfast he had at Sonya's Bed & Breakfast in Tagaytay. The delectable array of food included Chicken Pork Adobo, Mango Salsa with Coriander, Crispy Fried Pork Adobo, Garlic Fried Rice with Daing (dried salted fish), as well as rich Chocolate Eh, a perfectly made Omelette, fresh ripe mangoes, and Hispanis (or Spanish) bread.
From Lutong Disyerto we have Paksiw (pickled fish or fish cooked in vinegar) with sinangag (garlic fried rice). A great looking repast and another favorite (see Kusinera Wannabe's entry above).
Another new entry! Mirsbin's Kitchen shares with us some Champorado and Tuyo...another well loved favorite! So go over there and check out her "Ado at Away" story....
So there you have it! All the wonderful shades and colors of a Pinoy Breakfast, complete with stories and memories to warm the hearts and whet the appetites. I hope everyone enjoyed coming up with their entries as much as I enjoyed hosting this round. Until the next Lasang Pinoy...don't forget your breakfast! :)

Great round-up Jo! :)
And it's nice to discover new Pinoy food bloggers from everywhere.

mg said...

What a fantastic round-up Joey. Thanks again for hosting. Such a delight to learn such a variety of Pinoy Breakfast.

The entries had me drooling and made me want to try everyone's breakfast. I went looking for dried goods yesterday and found pusit and gutted dilis - no tuyo(! hmp). So instead of waiting for breakfast, i had it for dinner last night - fried pusit and dilis with chilli vinegar dip, plain onion and garlic omelette and boiled rice (i also tried Relly's prayer - hope it worked!). I chewed on the pusit like there's no tomorrow... (it's a great facial exercise!)

Marketmanila said...

Joey thanks for that terrific round-up! And dami na pala and so many new bloggers in a truly international set of entries... really amazing!

stef said...

ChichaJo said...

Hi Celia! Thanks, I agree :)

Hi Mae! Thank you :) I can relate: Paksiw for breakfast was totally new for me (there was more than one entry), so I kept thinking and thinking about it and I finally had to have it for dinner tonight! :)

Hi Marketman! I agree...it's so interesting reading entries from far and wide...and it's a great source of food inspiration!

Hi Stef! Thanks :) I totally enjoyed myself...I couldn't upload your picture to this entry though...I have no idea why...Good luck on the pusit hunt! :)

relly said...

Hello Joey, nice to know that almost all of our favorite breakfast are rice and varieties of ulam.. inspite of our divided country consisting of 7,100+ island
and being everywhere around the globe.. we got a unique "LASANG PINOY" (taste).

christine said...

Jo, the fun you had doing this is obvious, you did a great job! I'm impressed! :D

Sigh, but I still feel so bad I totally missed it,(thinking I still had enough time to get my budbud kabog in Salcedo market last Saturday - they were out by the time I got there though).

At any rate, congratulations to you and your first LP. :)

Hi, Joey! Kudos for a great LP7. Biglang kain uli ako ng breakfast after reading the round-up! ^^,

Mila Tan said...

Hi Joey, thanks for putting it all together and making me drool on my keyboard (kid you not), I'm going to spend a couple of hours visiting all the blogs (minus the ones I've read already, but I'll visit them anyway, so better budget 3 hours hehehe), drooling some more.
I have to say that since you posted the theme, a lot of my meals (not just breakfast) have been breakfast related. Breakfast on my mind. And I'm going to Sonya's next week so boyohboy am I enjoying that post about his meal there!!! woohoo!

Breakfast is my favourite meal, and let's face it, nothing like a (hangover) pinoy breakfast after a big night out. Congratulations, brilliant round-up. And yes it's morning now and after looking at your blog I'm starving.

violet said...

i dont know much about filipino cuisine, so this is a crash course for me and of course, very interesting. i had no idea there were so many pinoy food bloggers.

what a great job you did. it looks as though it were tons of work, but you really really came through.

Anthony said...

Amazing spread

ChichaJo said...

Hi Fiber! Glad you liked it :)

Hi Paz! Thanks...I wish I could send you a taste :)

Hi ggpaborito! I know...that's how I felt when putting it all together! :)

Hi Anthony! Thanks :)

dimaks said...

Hello, ang sarap bumisita dito sa site mo.. natatakam ako lagi :) daming foods (pictures nga lang).

ChichaJo said...

Hi Dimaks! Thanks! :)

great round-up! was looking for Pinoy breakfast varieties and realized that one particular home-cooked dish that i missed. a plain omelet, then topped with a small can of beans (the kind we are sooo familiar with-pork and beans na halos walang pork), let simmer for a minute and serve with sinangag or fresh rice and another dish of choice like native sausages or daing!
this is a hit with kids who love the sweet tomato sauce flavor of pork and beans.

there's a yummy version of spanish chorizo (or is it longganiza?) that's sold in dumaguete city. there's a skinless versin and the other one that i like better is what i call "chorizong bungkag". chorizing "bunkag" is skinless and it's not shaped into rolls or patties, it breaks up (much like ground meat) when cooked so every morsel is tasted and cooked through. it is sooo masarap. i eat it with fresh rice or sinangag, mix it up with the rice and usually have a perfectly boiled egg to go with it. top off with coffee or a hot cup of sikwate!!! sigh...

Jane said...

wow rapsa! They all look delicious, iba talga ang lutong pinoy. Nice blog by the way keep it up more power :)
