My 7 Favorite Recipes for National Breakfast Week

It’s National Breakfast Week!

Here’s a week’s worth of my favorite ways to start the day…

7. Patatas y Huevos Burritos

A little taste of my own childhood. Hearty and filling…lots of love on very little coin.


6. Sriracha Bacon Pancake Wraps

This recipe was actually invented while racing out of Chef Terry’s kitchen one day, on our way to a cooking event.

He had made pancakes, eggs, and bacon for his family that morning and, feeling slightly peckish (as always), I rolled all three together, and splashed it with a manly helping of Sriracha sauce, not realizing that the pancakes had already been drizzled with maple syrup.

The combination of sweet-spicy-savory-crunchy-soft and eggy turned out to be fantastic!

5. Taylor’s Pork Roll Breakfast Biscuit

Taylor’s Pork roll (regionally known as Taylor Ham)is a pork-based processed meat originating and commonly available in New Jersey and parts of Pennsylvania and Maryland. It was developed in 1856 by John Taylor of Trenton, New Jersey, and sold as “Taylor Ham”.

Other producers entered the market, and subsequent food labeling regulations required Taylor to designate it as a “pork roll” alongside their competitors.

4. Quick and Easy Pork Meatball Pho

Sometimes the best breakfast isn’t even breakfast. A steaming, spicy bowl of Pho can really get your blood pumping on a cold morning! Need it more “breakfasty?” – Lay a lightly poached egg over the top and dig in!

3. Biscuits & Sausage Gravy

One of my all-time favorite breakfast dishes, biscuits and gravy, especially homemade sausage gravy is crazy easy to make from scratch, and SO much tastier than anything you’re going to find in a bottle or can. In fact, it’s so easy that I put together a quick video to show you, step-by-step, how simple this 5-ingredient dish really is!

2. Bacon Apple Cheddar Dutch Baby

A Dutch baby pancake, sometimes called a German pancake, a Bismarck, or a Dutch puff, is a sweet popover that is normally served for breakfast. It is derived from the German pfannkuchen.

1. My #1 favorite breakfast: Hangtown Fry!~

Oysters may not be your thing, and that’s okay…somebody has to be wrong. Farm-fresh scrambled eggs, fresh Willapa extra-small oysters sauteed in butter with garlic and shallots, smokey bacon right out of the Traeger… oh, baby!

If I see this on the menu, I close it up and order…with a side of rye toast, please…
