I am writing this blog early because my wife and I are heading out to see our new granddaughter (if she would hurry up and pop into this world). We are expecting her to be born by the time we get to Rochester, MN or shortly after. I will update the blog when she comes, which should be before you read this paragraph as we're back the day this comes out. Enough for now about the prettiest and smartest girl in the world (I'm sure), let's get back to breakfast.
Last week I talked about breakfast as a time of day. That first meal after you have awakened for a new day. Today I want to talk about breakfast as a meal. The actual food you eat and refer to as breakfast food.
We're talking pancakes, French toast, waffles (regular & Belgium), crepes, hot and cold cereal, grits, breakfast breads and rolls, English muffins, biscuits, bagels, breakfast casseroles, bacon, sausage (banger), ham, hash browns and other breakfast potatoes. And we haven't even mentioned all the things you can do with eggs.
Everyone loves these foods even if they don't eat them in the morning. In my cookbook, I talked about how establishments like Perkins, IHOP, Denny's and even Waffle House do so much breakfast food business in hours that are not breakfast time. People love to eat this type of food for lunch but even more for dinner or late night meals.
Breakfast food for the most part is inexpensive compared to other meal foods. Maybe not so much in restaurants, but when making them at home-you save money. I recommended, in the cookbook, that you plan a breakfast meal for dinner at least once a week to help your food budget. Besides, for some people that is the only time they might get a breakfast meal because they don't get up in time to make one in the morning.
Think about that for a bit. You like this type of food. So why not make it when it is convenient for you and your family or friends?
Remember that I'm only doing two (2) blogs a week for a few weeks. On Thursday there will be a another Quiche recipe. This one is made with a hash-brown crust instead of a pie/pastry type crust. Be sure to check it out.
Also for those who receive KQ2 TV from St. Joseph, MO, they have someone who will fill in my time slots. His first show will be Monday, June 4th between 6:45 and 7:00 AM. His name is Ray Gilbert and he has a business called "Guys in the Kitchen" where he teaches man to cook some special meals. Please give him a watch on Monday.
