Chef Chong's First Breakfast Casserole

Honestly I have no idea what ingredients in a casserole dish before until I googled it. The reason I was making it because of a friend who is in the same art class asked me to come up with some menus for her daughter's brunch bridal shower and she insisted to have a breakfast casserole. I told her that I never made one before but I can do it for sure. Actually, it is very easy and if you have a correct seasoning, its really taste good. The cheese of your choice makes the casserole tastier. Try this and I am sure you will love this.


4 cups shredded Russet potatoes
4 whole Eggs
1.5cup Milk
1 lb Bacon crisped
1/2 teaspoon ground Black pepper
2 cups white mushrooms sliced
2 yellow onions diced
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon chopped parsley
1/2 cup shredded cedar cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


Baked the shredded potatoes with some olive oil and salt until little brown in the casserole pan at 400F. Then let it cool.
Mixed the eggs, milk, parsley, salt, pepper, bacon crumbed, in the casserole.
Sautéed mushrooms and onions separately and put them in the casserole too. Mix well.
Add the cedar and mozarrela cheese on top and bake at 375F for about 45 minutes until brown and set.

Plum Persimmon Tartlets

That day, my neighbor, Mary Ann invited me to another neighbor's house, Milo, to pick some plums in the backyard. He has a very beautiful backyard with green lawn, a gazebo with nice outdoor furniture set, some beautiful colorful flowers and some healthy fruit trees especially the santa rosa plum tree. I was amazed by the number of colorful purple magenta light red plums hanging on that giant tree, just like Christmas tree full of colorful ornaments. I said to myself that I am going to get a plum tree in my backyard too. Now, it is my recipe making this plum tartlets and added in some persimmons too. The crust recipe is one of my favourite recipes I have. Enjoy the summer treats.

Recipe soon.

Healthy Chicken Beans

I was making this chicken dish because of wanting to eat healthy and light. I used 2 big pieces of chicken thigh with drumsticks to make into a big pot of chicken soup (as usual way of making a soup with celery, carrots and onions). However, the chicken has to be cooked just right or little al dante. Take out the chicken and let it cool down so that you can shred the meat out. No Skin for this healthy eating. Once shredded, saute some beans (I used turtle purple beans just like purple string beans) with carmelised onions and some ginger. Add some garlic salt to taste. Once near to done, add the shredded chicken meat into the pan and mix all together, saute again for a min or two. Thats it, healthy chicken beans for dinner. No starchy food. Garnish with cucumber and bell peppers, or any other vegetables you like. Lastly, drizzle some soy sauce on top and you can enjoy this meal in front of the TV.

Seared Rockfish Masala

This is a very good dinner, healthy and light. I got the Rockfish from Costco and actually it is a good white fish, the meat is flaky and moist when cooked. So here is how I made my Seared Rockfish Masala. Seasoned those fillet with masala, garlic salt and some ground black pepper. Use a non-stick pan to sear them about 3 min each side on medium to high heat (use vegetable oil). Then throw in some diced vege you like, such as bell peppers, asparagus, parsley and green onions and then cover the saucepan with a lid for a min or two. The reason is to have some moisture in it (the sauce). Lastly, take the lid away, stir the vege and add little garlic salt to taste. You will love this...

The green vegetable is Kale. I grow Kale every year in the garden. Take out the stem, cut the leaves in small stripes, cleaned and sauteed with vege oil, garlic salt and mushrooms. Add little water to cook this, so that the kale will get softer. Say about 3-5 min.

Rockfish Ontop of Congee

It was fun thinking of what goes with my Rockfish, that is the Congree or Porridge. Cantonese called it "Jook". You can make your own flavor jook or just plain easily. Mine was watercress, sausage, chicken stock, green onions and of cos, jasmine rice. Why Jasmine Rice? Well, it is very smooth in texture, cooked fast and more aroma than the others. So the Rockfish I got from Costco is fresh and I seasoned it with olive oil, garlic salt and masala spice. Seared the Rockfish until cooked, say 4-5 minutes each side depends on how thick is the fillet. The thicker the longer in the hot saucepan (medium to high heat). The texture of the rockfish is flakey and white fish taste. I garnished with chopped fresh parsley. You can use cilantro or green onions or any other herbs you prefer. Well, try it and you sure will enjoy your jook time.

This is one of my creation, I can tell you that, it is so so Gooood! Decadent, smooth and hit you right the spot. Our Fain named this cake for us, Magma instead of Lava. See, this recipe came up when I had some egg yolks in the fridge. Yes, just egg yolks, not the whole egg. You can imagine how rich is this magma cake. Try this and you will not be disappointed. You do not need mixer!

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 egg yolks
1 Tablespoon heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar (or 1/4 cup for less sweet result)
1 Tablespoon Flour


1. Mix together butter and chocolate chips together in a microwaveable bowl and melt them in microwave about 10 seconds until you can see they are melting ( or a pot on low heat, stir constantly until well mixed). Please be reminded that chocolate chips can be burnt easily in microwave for long time. Stir well.

Sliced Lemon Lettuce Salad

Lemon rind is usually a gourmet ingredient in daily food at many restaurants nowadays. But what about just eat all parts of the lemon except the seeds? Well, here I discovered it when I was having sushi tuna with lemon at a nice sushi place in town. In my head I was thinking of using the sliced lemon in many dishes. Here is one of them, in the salad. I know many people use just lemon juice and rind, you know that you have to do double job (getting the rind and juice). Now is perfect idea to use both of them in just one job ie SLICE them thin. Then mix them with whatever salad you want and it turns out really good.


1 head Romaine Lettuce
1 whole lemon (thin slice)
Handful Micro parsley and cilantro
Handful Salted Peanuts
2 Tablespoon Reduced Balsamic vinegar
Your preference amount Olive oil and Garlic salt
