A Little ‘Light’ Breakfast!

In my opinion, there is no better meal than breakfast!  While I generally don’t care much for ‘fancy’ food to start my day, I do love the basics… Sometimes it’s cereal with fruit; toast with peanut butter and jam; scrambled cheese eggs and toast; hash and eggs; smoothies; waffles, made with our wonderful waffle maker & pure maple syrup…or just bacon and eggs with toast.

However, there are times when more is better!  How about 3 eggs over easy with cheesy hash browns, top notch sausage from Benton’s and a couple of nice slices of buttered toast?  Worked for me!  It’s a good thing that we only had 2 meals on the day that I produced this masterpiece of goodness.  Add Tabasco, then make a sandwich out of one of those sausage patties, mop up the yoke…what more could anyone want!?

By the way, Laurie, my photographer and better half, doesn’t generally care for sausage.  This sausage from Benton’s was the exception.  She really liked it!
Unfortunately, the sausage, hot dogs, strip steaks ($7.99 lb), rib eye steaks ($8.39 lb) and a few other products can’t be ordered on-line.  It’s not a problem for us as Benton’s is just a few miles from our home.  On-line ordering is limited to aged whole country hams, hickory smoked country hams, unsmoked hams and hickory smoked country bacon. (The latter makes the best ever BLT sandwiches!)
Benton’s is one of America’s top chefs favorite suppliers, with its ham, bacon and prosciutto used in hundreds of restaurants across the country.  For more information, go to  If you live in East Tennessee and want to take advantage of a good thing, Benton’s store and production facility is located at 2603 Highway 411 North in Madisonville.  Phone: 423-442-5003.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

  1. "In my opinion, there is no better meal than breakfast!" - I couldn't agree with you more and this looks like just the right meal to help you with your diet.

  2. Dear Dave, I look forward to breakfast too. I certainly look forward to coffee I love eggs and toast.
    I am glad Laurie liked the sausage too. Blessings, Catherine
