  • Brick Oven for Breakfast

    Has anyone here cooked in their brick oven to make breakfast or brunch? I have some friends stopping by in a few months and are excited to see my oven in action. Two problems: 1. My oven isn't done yet 2. I have no idea what to make in it for breakfast, other than breakfast pizza. Any recipes would be appreciated.

    Use a cast iron pan for eggs and something like a tuscan grill for steak.

      Bacon and eggs with tomatoes and mushies.

      Some nan bread, it cooks in seconds, sprinkled with course salt and olive oil prior to cooking.

      Chestnuts, everyone loves chestnuts.

      Cheese on toast, toast the bread in the oven, butter, cheese, back into the oven.

      Omelet, add cheese salami etc.

        We sometimes cook pies. When I say pies I mean pies not pizzas. We use 1/4 of a puff pastry sheet in a small greased pie tin, fillit with whatever you like, fold the four corners to the centre (no top) and cook at around 200 C. Puff pastry doesn't work if your oven is too much hotter or colder than the 200 C mark.these pies are great and your guests can build their own.

          I usually cook cinnamon buns the morning after a pizza party.

            sure its along the lines of pizza but it could give you a chance to experiment with your dough.

            You could also go down the bread route.
            Fruit bread
            Flat breads
            also there is croissants

                K79, yeah he's got some cracker recipes
                for pizza dough - others in your part of the world would have best advice on flour type.....I think a tipo 00 is good.

                As far as technique......best I find is a primary rise over about 2 hours the night before pizza night
                Then divide down into dough balls and into fridge.

                Depending on weather and temp, pull them out of fridge 1 to 3 hours prior to pizza, so that they can rise and get going again. Usually I get a nice soft dough but I hand spread the base, rather than a rolling pin.
