I didn't stop for groceries last night, which turned into a ride on the drama llama; for I got up this morning, and it is a long day ahead, and there are NO EGGS. Oh, the humanity! (Yes, I do eat other things for breakfast--I am particularly fond of Irish oatmeal--but I wasn't in the mood for that, and I don't have a toaster oven at present so cheese-on-toast is out, and yogurt & granola doesn't keep me going for long enough.)

In my head place, it is simpler to spend effort finding some random recipe on the intarwubs and tear the kitchen apart to make it than it is to a) just go up the block to get eggs or b) just go up the block to buy breakfast. We are not at home to Mister Logic, here. So! To the internetmobile!

I searched around mashed sweet potatoes, since I already have a surfeit, and believe it or not I found a fair amount of recipes. Most of which require eggs. -_- However, I did come across a vegan's sweet potato breakfast casserole! Vegan! No eggs! Huzzah! Sold! Now, the recipe has you cooking the oats in soy milk, then adding the cooked but not-yet-mashed potatoes in, so we're already off the rails...

1. Start 1/2 cup of steel-cut oats. Hope that this is roughly equivalent to 1/2 cup rolled oats.
2. Dig around for a 4-cup casserole or ramekin. Realize you only have 2x 8-cup entities. Sigh. Pick the narrower of the two.
3. When the oatmeal is done, glorp it into the casserole, and add 1.5 c. of last night's mashed sweet potatoes. Stir 'em up real good.
4. Recipe calls for banana and seeds you've never heard of and other weird vegan shit. Suff on that. Add a double-handful of dried cranberries and a handful of chopped-up crystallized ginger. Stir 'em up real good.
5. Prepare the pecan topping, only you have no pecans. Walnuts or brazil nuts? The walnuts are older, so use those. Chop up a handful and a half.
6. Recipe says to mix nuts with butter substitute and brown sugar and cinnamon. Use instead real butter, cinnamon, cardamom, and MAPLE sugar because we are some STUDLY KITCHEN BITCHES RIGHT HERE.
7. Sprinkle topping over casserole.
8. Put casserole in 350-degree oven for about 20 minutes. Make a note that it might be wise to pick up an oven thermometer, because who knows what temperature this is really at?
9. When done, go to put casserole under broiler for 2 minutes. Realize that the broiler is under the oven and full of stuff. Fuck that, and dish it up.

It is pretty good, though I expected it to become more solid, not less so; I can't imagine what it'd have been if I used all the soy milk they called for. To be honest, even with the oatmeal it isn't very breakfast-y to me--I would happily eat it for dessert--but it fills the corners.
