Mid-Winter ‘Comfort’ Breakfast!

When I got up this morning, I looked outside and noted that it was still gray and a little depressing…although the fog was mostly gone.  With January morning temperatures to date mainly ranging from the high 30’s to the low 40’s, it seemed like a good morning for ‘comfort food’.  My better half perhaps wisely declined my offer to make her one of these ‘breakfast’ creations…

I started by assembling the following ingredients: Two brown eggs; a piece of bread from Fresh Market; 2 split left-over grilled hotdogs; a ladle and a half of Laurie’s homemade HOT ground beef and bean chili, and; some shredded sharp cheddar cheese.

I heated the chili and the hot dogs in the microwave; then I toasted and buttered the bread.  My preliminary assembly was as follows:  toast on the bottom; split hot dogs on the toast; chili ladled on top, and; I spread the shredded cheese liberally on top of the hot/HOT chili…and it melted nicely. 

My final step was to fry the 2 eggs easy-over in butter with a bit of pepper…and then I slid them into the place of honor on top of the toast, hot dogs, chili and cheese.  What a luscious combo! 

This was a very comforting breakfast on a gray day…and it definitely carried me through until dinner time!
