Two Eggs, Hash Browns and Toastbreakfast in a Fort Worth restaurant, two eggs with hash browns and toast is perfection on a plate. Chef Point Café cooks up an impressive version of this homestyle breakfast and aims to please. Those who like their eggs runny, scrambled, sunny side, hard fried or poached can all be satisfied. Each part of this simple morning combination has an interesting history.
Asking someone from the breakfast industry whether the chicken or the egg came first, the egg would surely be the answer. These white ovals full of cookable protein are customer favorites around the globe. In the US, chicken eggs are the main variety consumed while people in other countries enjoy eggs from geese, ducks, guineas, emu and ostrich. Breakfast foods like pancakes, muffins and waffles are almost impossible to make without eggs. But eggs themselves provide a viable source of protein without added fat or carbohydrates. Fort Worth restaurant patrons can enjoy two eggs, hash browns and toast and leave without feeling overstuffed.
Hash browns are the next component of this all-American breakfast. Potatoes are finely chopped, grated, cubed or julienned and then fried. Depending on the recipe, other ingredients may be added including peppers, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms or cheese. Common condiments that accompany hash browns in Fort Worth restaurants include ketchup, hot sauce, salt, pepper, sour cream or applesauce. An Irish variant is a boxty, which is like a light potato pancake. Eastern European and Jewish cooks prepare latkes, which are potato cakes made with eggs. Hash browns have become so popular in North American that many diners may order them for meals throughout the day.
The final part of this terrific trio is the toast. In 1928, the Chillicothe Baking Company began slicing and selling sliced bread out of their operation located in Chillicothe, Missouri. But even further back in history, bread pieces were known to have been toasted over an open flame. The invention of pre-sliced bread and electric toasters was a match made in heaven. For breakfast, these warm, crisp pieces of bread are generally topped with butter, jam, preserves, jelly or fruit butter. And toast sure hits the spot right next to two eggs and hash browns.
This weekend, why not treat yourself to a tasty breakfast in a casual Fort Worth restaurant? After putting in a full workweek, it's ok to take a little time off for a great southern meal. Try two eggs with hash browns and toast; it'll keep you going without weighing you down.
