America enjoys eating breakfast at almost any time of day, and there are some enduring traditional American breakfasts that many know and love. Eggs Benedict is one such famous breakfast dish enjoyed for over 100 years. Its origins are debated, but there’s no debating the popularity of this breakfast classic. The basic recipe involves a toasted English muffin cut in half with a piece of ham and a poached egg on each side, all smothered in the real stuff—an authentically creamy and delicious, homemade Hollandaise sauce. At The Original Pancake House, we love Eggs Benedict so much we serve four delicious variations! Come on by and sample our Traditional Eggs Benedict, Mary’s Eggs Benedict, Pork Green Chile Eggs Benedict, or Veggie Eggs Benedict. No matter which version you try, you won’t be disappointed.
Another traditional and favorite food on America’s breakfast table is French toast. The history of this famous breakfast dish dates all the way back to the 4th or 5th century. Talk about an enduring dish! Like most of the world, we love this golden eggy bread for breakfast. At The Original Pancake House, you can have your classic French toast made with sourdough bread dusted with powdered sugar and served with whipped butter, served encrusted with sliced almonds, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, topped with fresh strawberries, homemade fresh whipped cream, dusted with powdered sugar, and served with homemade warm strawberry syrup, or loaded with sliced bananas, toasted pecans, warm praline sauce and homemade fresh whipped cream. Any way you slice it, our French toast is a hit.
Did you know that the egg omelette is a modern version of a favorite dish during the French Revolutionary Wars. It was made popular by Napoleon Bonaparte while his army made their way through southern France. Today, our traditional American breakfast includes an omelette that is made from whole beaten eggs or simply egg whites that are mixed with a small amount of milk, cream, or water and fried with butter or oil in a frying pan (without stirring as in scrambled eggs). Omelettes are normally folded around a filling such as cheese, chives, vegetables, mushrooms, meat, or a combination of ingredients. We’ve got eight different kinds of palate pleasing omelettes here at The Original Pancake House, chock full of enough goodness to satisfy the hungriest cowboy.
Belgian waffles were made famous thanks in part to a Belgian named Walter Cleyman, who brought these delicious waffles to the Century 21 Exposition in Seattle in 1962 and served them to the crowd with whipped cream and strawberries. They became a traditional American bre
akfast favorite when these waffles made an encore appearance during the 1964 New York World’s Fair at Flushing Meadows Park in Queens, New York City, thanks to another Belgian named Maurice Vermersch. We carry on the tradition of serving irresistible Belgian waffles at The Original Pancake House with our golden brown beauties, topped with fresh strawberries and homemade fresh whipped cream, dusted with a touch of powdered sugar and served with warm homemade strawberry syrup.
Believe it or not, eggs and bacon hasn’t always been the staple of a traditional American breakfast. When the first Europeans colonized America, their breakfasts often consisted of porridge and beer unless the family was well off, then they enjoyed a much wider variety of food choices including fresh game and steak and eggs. Today, bacon and eggs is considered a typical American breakfast, and is labeled as such on many European restaurant menus. At The Original Pancake House, our meat and egg plate choices include not only thick sliced honey cured bacon but also hickory smoked ham, link or patty sausage, hardwood smoked Canadian bacon, turkey sausage patties, and even fresh corned beef hash. You’ve got plenty of hearty choices when meat and eggs is what you yearn for.
