Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole

You know that exciting feeling when you move your boat to a new marina, right? Even though it’s the same old boat, the new location feels like you’re in a brand new home. There are new sounds, new waves and movement, and the sun casts its light in different beams through the portholes. We are…

Eggs Sardou

I alluded ever so vaguely to it two weeks ago … Caroline brushed up closer last week with making bread, because there is none to buy.  But this week we have to acknowledge full-on: things are a MESS for those not already sequestered in a floating home where non-cohabitants have at least an anchor line-and-chain’s…

Kolaches (aka TX breakfast hot dogs)

There was a time when your faithful Pirate had not heard of these wonderful one-handed breakfast treats.  I KNOW…Captain Peter was equally incredulous when I asked “what are these kolaches?” that I was reading about.  “YOU’VE NEVER HAD TEXAS BREAKFAST HOT DOGS?!?” was his response.  We met and married late, so we occasionally discover these…

Breakfast Crunch Wraps

Just like the convenience of a drive through Taco Bell, my skipper and I got to sit in the cockpit while guests Aly and Jamie created “made to order” Breakfast Crunch Wraps for us! No cooking for me this morning. This was paradise! I ordered mine with the works and ducked down into the galley…

Spinach, Feta & Sun Dried Tomato Egg Cups

A grab-and-go breakfast is never overrated on a sailboat. These can be eaten under way with nothing more than a hand and a napkin. There’s no limit to what you can put in them. Add some bacon or sausage for your meat lovers. Plus they can be refrigerated or frozen ahead. Make a few dozen…

German Apple Pancake

The thing about Easter is it’s always still a little chilly — spring, no doubt, but not necessarily warm.  Pirate Kristin grew up in Boston where you wore wooly tights under your frilly Easter dress, and not infrequently “got lucky” … colored eggs are easier to spot in the snow.  Even down here in the…

Chilaquiles

…or, “how to eat chips and salsa for breakfast without explaining yourself.”  This is one of my captain’s favorite breakfasts, making it a real shame that this is the first time I’ve made it for him…and is our twelfth wedding anniversary!  I had never heard of it, so when he and his mom — who taught…

Blue Crab Breakfast Arepas

I know we’re all prepping for the holidays but I just can’t help getting one more Arepa recipe in! Rewind to January, Santa Marta, Columbia, with the 2018 World ARC…my Arepa inauguration. Breakfasts onboard have never been the same since. I’ve created other breakfast arepas on Galley Pirates, but this Maryland-influenced Arepa is by far my…

Pork Ranchero Breakfast Arepa

Arepas are my new addiction so be prepared to see a number of these recipes on Galley Pirates. They are super easy to make and can be served plain, stuffed with cheese, smothered in sauces or any way imaginable. My introduction to these savory fried corn cakes was in Santa Marta, Columbia, where they’re a…
