Food & Cooking
Chicago’s cold chills you to the bone. When you need to get out in the morning, you want a warm breakfast to help you out the door. At our Chicago apartments, it’s easy to make a delicious morning meal.
THE FRY UP
This is a standard breakfast in the UK. If you have any friends from England, they’ll describe this as a proper meal. Give this hearty, warming British staple a try.
- At least two kinds of standard breakfast meat, like link sausage or thick-cut bacon
- Black pudding (a.k.a blood sausage)
- Thick-cut white bread
- A tomato, sliced thick
- Baked beans
- A huge skillet
Put all the ingredients in the same pan and fry them in a bit of oil. It may take a bit of practice to get it right and to start out with, you may want to use separate pans to fry the ingredients. After you’ve finished, you’ll be full and satisfied!
What is better on a cold morning than a warm bowl of oatmeal and coffee? Forget about the thin gruel that is microwavable oats in a packet. Cook a hearty breakfast in your slow cooker. Recipes vary based on whether you like stiff oats or a soupier texture. However, you must use steel cut oatmeal or else you’ll be grabbing for cold cereal when the dish turns out poorly.
MISO SOUP AND FISH – JAPANESE STYLE IN CHICAGO
The combination provides a great balanced meal that should keep you going until lunchtime, giving you a high-protein meal with a healthy proportion of simple and complex carbohydrates. Add green tea for your antioxidant drink.
SOUTHERN STYLE CLASSIC BREAKFAST
Chicago is famous for the food and music traditions that have carried on throughout the years. One great Southern breakfast tradition is grits. Around the Gulf Coast, grits are served with spicy shrimp.
