This past weekend I ventured down to the local French bakery and bought 4 baguettes. Yes, four. They are truly authentic French baguettes, similar to what we would have bought when I lived in France. And they only cost $1.50 — about what I paid 18 years ago in France!

The baguettes were still warm when I bought them. So even though hubs was still sleeping I had to wake him up. You see on our honeymoon — in France — he went to the bakery to get our breakfast and the croissants were still warm. He ate two before I even woke up.

He had never eaten anything like it. And while he was waxing poetic about warm, buttery, flakey croissants, I interrupted, “And you didn’t wake me up?”

It was almost the start of our first fight as a married couple. He saved himself by explaining that he thought I had always eatenย  warm when I was a student in France.

No, no I didn’t.

Anyway, long story short …. We made one of our favorite breakfasts on Saturday morning, known as Petit Dejeuner at our house. It’s nothing tricky, just baguette, slathered with butter and jam with a big cup of coffee for dipping. So good!

What made it even better was the jar of Olallieberry Jam that I bought on our vacation a few weeks ago. Oh my! That was delicious.

By far, petit dejeuner is one of our family’s favorite breakfasts. While I could make a semblance of a baguette on my own. I’m thinking $6 for eight of us to eat our fill is not a bad deal.

  1. Oh, wow, that’s MY childhood breakfast! But no jam, and the milky coffee used to be served in a deep bowl that you used to drink directly from. The coffee would end up richly buttery. Divine.

    Thanks for sparking that memory.

    Mine is definitely IHOP pancakes!!! I have a recipe that is as close as I can get to them. I have a few homemade mixes in the pantry for Saturday and Sunday mornings ๐Ÿ™‚ OR you could just visit IHOP on National Pancake day (in February I think) and get a free short stack!! my oh my…..

    Now living in England I have a new second favorite- a cream tea! It includes a nice pot of tea (with milk, not cream-cream in tea is a big no-no I’ve learned!), and a warm scone with jam and clotted cream…*sighs*

  3. That reminds me of the breakfast we would get in a B&B in England several years ago. Delicious! My favorite breakfast at home is probably French toast topped with fruit and whipped cream (and maybe a drizzle of chocolate syrup if I’m feeling really decadent!). And, of course, the coffee!

  4. My husband loves all things breakfast! He told me last weekend that that meal is his weakness…lol! I don’t have a lot of variety in my breakfasts unfortunately but he said he doesn’t mind. I guess the one I make the most often would be burritos. I do try to vary the meats I add. Our favorite by far is egg/sausage/potato. Serve with a little homemade salsa and you’re good to go!

  5. It may sound strange, but my favorite breakfast is cold pizza. YUM! I usually have it on Friday mornings since Thursday is our homemade pizza night around here.

  6. Christine says:

    I have a lot of favorites, but my thighs don’t agree ; )
    French Toast
    Pancakes……..really anything sweet and carby!

    However now I eat fruit and raisin oatmeal and cottage cheese pancakes (which are heavely and healthy)!

  7. I love breakfast, but seem to get stuck on a favorite for a while before I move on. Currently my fav is a burrito with a fried egg, homemade refried beans, and the pepper plant hot sauce. Sounds so weird but its really good!

  8. Sausage gravy and biscuits!

  9. Sausage gravy and biscuits!

  10. I like a lot of variety… my favorite staples are a smoothie, or yogurt with fruit.
    But I think I have more energy when I eat protein at the beginning of the day, so I’m a huge fan of the classic eggs, whole grain toast, and (turkey) bacon.
    Altho now Coby has me wanting cold pizza, lol! Tonight I’m planning to make pizza so guess what I’ll hopefully be eating tomorrow morning?

  11. See, this is why I love Europe. A simple fresh loaf of bread and a cup of joe and everyone is happy. Add a little jam and we’re HUMMING. My family is Scottish and we are all often gathered around a table with a big loaf of fresh bread, a jar of good honey, and a ton of butter. Coffee is a necessity. Great post.

  12. Blueberry pancakes ๐Ÿ™‚

    Or a sesame seed bagel w/ chive & onion cream cheese. Yum!

    Since switching to a vegetarian diet, it’s all about smoothies for breakfast. It’s funny, we love variety in our meals for lunch and dinner, but for a month now, all of us have had a smoothie with banana, strawberries, and yogurt.

  14. This is my staple breakfast:

    I love them, so filling & yummy and totally remind me of my mom! Other favorites are Dutch babies…mmmmm ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. I’m all about the breads…muffins, scones, etc. I just made pumpkin scones yesterday that are my new addiction! Possibly the best recipe I’ve ever made.

  16. mmm, i love france breakfasts! ๐Ÿ™‚ i’ve spent some time there (mission trips for a summer and a winter break) but never have had warm croissants either! but i love breakfast. parfaits, eggs, pancakes, you name it. tonight for dinner we had bacon waffles. those were so good!
