When I mentioned what I was thinking about for my dinner, Laurie suggested that I add a couple of fried eggs to the plate…and then I was off and running. I knew what my final construction was going to look like!
These were my basic starting ingredients… To these, I added pepper, a quantity of onion powder and some coarse garlic bits. I chopped up the cheeseburger and heated it up with the hot chili. When that was heated up…and a little crusty in the bottom of the pan…I fried the eggs and then scattered the shredded cheese over the top of my monumental dinner.
This is the finished product! I added the peperoncini’s to pop it up a bit...and to provide a little vegetable content with my dinner. After Laurie took this photo, I sprinkled Tabasco over the entire structure.
It wasn’t quite as good as my favorite breakfast ever… While attending Michigan State University, I used to eat at a place called Uncle John’s Pancake House. They served a similar construction…only they used buttered Texas toast and a freshly fried hamburger…whole and right off the grill. Still, I had a tasty dinner and I wasn’t hungry again until the afternoon of the next day.
This breakfast/dinner construction project is dedicated to Big Dude at http://bigdudesramblings.blogspot.com/. Big Dude, also known as Larry, is the master of the creative breakfast. He puts together leftovers and other ingredients that he has ‘just laying around’ in a fashion that defies my limited imagination…and he does this in the morning…when I’m barely functioning… Here’s to you Larry…!
