Recipes from Today’s Show: Breakfast for Dinner

Published by

TODAY on MHTV: I created these recipes with breakfast in mind, but they work for dinner too — especially on those days when there’s nothing in the house to eat, since most of the ingredients are basic pantry items. Burritos stuffed with chorizo, eggs, and melted Monterey Jack; eggs poached in tomato sauce, and fluffy sour cream waffles will have your family asking for “brinner.” More from the show.

    Your breakfast burritos were a hit today at my Sunday brunch. I had 18 of my teaching colleagues over. Boy did I have to make so many to feed this hungry crowd on this great Sunday. We all watch you over the summer and many of us will now DVR you when we return to school in September. Where did the summer go? We are forever asking you questions about your recipes.
    One question many of us have, is that you never address our questions when we ask if teacher John will be back cooking with you. Teachers are a strong force and we were quite impressed when we saw this teacher out there making a difference. What was most impressive to us is that he prepared recipes that were just as terrific than if a cooking professional made them. As teachers, this bunch likes to eat and share recipes. There are 5 men cooks in our group.
    There was a great article on teacher John, in a teacher’s magazine, on teachers who make a difference. He discussed how he teaches important skills through cooking. He mentioned that you made this past school year so extra special for his students and how “Mad Hungry” was such a great learning tool for his students. That’s great publicity for you and the show. No doubt from the article, we will be hearing more about him. But we would like to see him again share recipes on Mad Hungry. It’s the cooking show we watch everyday. We were reading your blog today while we were all putting brunch together and saw that you commented today. You replied to a blogger that you’re finishing up 50 new episodes (very exciting) with many guests. But you never let us know if he will be one of them. We are always quite impressed with your guests. We learn so much from others. So if you are having repeat guests from season one, we all hope as loyal viewers, and as teachers, which is a big core of your audience, that this gentleman will be one of them. We were hoping that maybe he already filmed an episode and was one of the “guests” you were talking about in your blog response.

    Thank you,

    P.S. Many of your cocktail drinks went quite well with our brunch today.

    I made the sour cream waffles. They were great.

    To Carnie who wrote an essay (lol), I agree with you, that man was a good guest. Hopefully the show is going to have him back. Why wouldn’t they? There having other people back on.

    Also Lucinda, I’m a fan of the burritos also . There are s0 many things you can put into a burrito.
