Reddit Hilariously Decides What Makes A Perfect Texas Breakfast
A nice stack of pancakes, cereal, waffles, eggs & bacon... doesn't matter what you have for breakfast, Texas loves a good breakfast meal.
We've heard of an English breakfast, but what about a Texas breakfast? Well the challenging thing is... what exactly IS a Texas breakfast & how do you make accurately one?
A Reddit user named "sir_piddles_worth", posted an image of his Texas brinner:
Not a bad choice. However, other Reddit users were quick to throw their suggestions:
- "littlewitten" says "I’d argue tortillas instead of toast. But I’d also argue toast and tortillas". (Hey both is good)
- "PracticalSale2573" would switch out a couple of the main dishes:
"Bread, meat, potatoes, eggs, and beans
Egg on bread Beans on mash potatoes And pork chop by itself
Well instead of Pork chop I would prefer chicken fried steak"
Other comments are just hilarious
- "Nary a fruit or veggie to see. Yep, nailed it." - Do_you_have_a_salad
- "Because in Texas, there are no vegetables, just a dinner mint and angioplasty. You forgot the deer sausage" - Antha1969
- "This feels like I’m dreaming and my brain is trying to make a full English from memory, so it’s almost completely unrecognizable to me but oddly familiar" -Mugcake3
If you ask me, on what MY Texas breakfast consists of, this is what I think:
- You have to have a piece of toast. TEXAS toast to be precise. (Although....french toast is not a bad option too)
- Eggs are a great choice too; I prefer scrambled but you can have them however you want like huevos rancheros, or over easy.
- A stack of golden pancakes,
- Biscuits & gravy. (It is a southern staple)
- Sweet potatoes
- And finally...Bacon is always a winner (or sausage if you prefer) but this is Texas. You HAVE to include steak with your meal.
You could make Texas steaks & eggs like Gordon Ramsey if you want.
Will we ever see a definitive recipe for a "Texas" breakfast? Probably not. With so many things to add on our plate. it's like our motto, everything is bigger in Texas.
