Breakfast before heading home Sunday was at The Egg & I. This a restaurant chain specializing in, what else, breakfast and brunch.
My dining companions had positive comments for the most part. The kitchen apparently was slammed at the time we were there, so we had about a 35 minute wait before our food was served. But good company at the breakfast table made that time go by quickly. We were greeted with this announcement on the wall when we were seated! And we know it's true.
Dining Companion #1 had a "create your own omelette." Unfortunately, I neglected to note what she chose as the fillings. However, here are the listed choices. Quite the selection!
You can choose any three ingredients from the following:
Fresh Avocado | Bacon | Chorizo Sausage | Grilled Chicken | Chicken Apple Sausage | Ham | Sausage | Turkey Sausage | Feta Cheese | Gouda | Havarti Dill Cheese | Jack & Cheddar | Mozzarella Cheese | Pepper Jack Cheese | Swiss Cheese | Artichoke Hearts | Asparagus | Green Chile Peppers | Green Onions | Green Peppers | Jalapeños | Onions | Portabella Mushrooms | Fresh Spinach | Roasted Tomatoes | Fresh Tomatoes
I had the Mexican Omelette which was full of chorizo, chiles and onions, topped with cheese, pork green chili, sour cream and green onions served with a flour tortilla and ranch potatoes. The green chili was delicious on the omelette, but the potatoes were a little cold and under-seasoned for me.
Sweet Harold had his favorite Sausage Gravy and Biscuits. The gravy was very peppery. If you have a problem with black pepper heat, remember this when you order!
Dining Companion #2 selected the Mexican Skillet
Chorizo, black beans, green chilies, tomatoes and onions on ranch potatoes with pork green chili or salsa. Topped with pepper jack cheese and two eggs any style. Served with a flour tortilla.
