I Win!!

This morning's breakfast was another one of my "visions" (note the new post label!), right down to the plating. Of course my boyfriend was responsible for the most of the execution, but he took direction very well, and I have to say this was an astounding success (as perhaps you can tell by the number of pictures included with this post).

My initial inspiration came from my advisor using the phrase "beet pancakes", and then the specific flavour profile was inspired by this recipe. In particular, the horseradish flavour (that we got from the wasabi mayo) was perfect with the beets, so much so that I may never eat beets without horseradish again!

Beet pancakes: shredded beets, flour, egg, bacon, wasabi mayonnaise & green onions
Topped with a dollop of wasabi mayonnaise
Served with a perfectly poached egg, and bacon.


  1. This is a very creative dish, I like the addition of wasabi mayo. Yum!

  2. Oh Wow!! I love beets SO MUCH and this looks like a perfect meal! Seriously, I want to reach out and take a big bite! Yum :)
