For a bonus challenge, make a breakfast dish. Get creative, but make sure to provide your documentation for its place at the breakfast table!
Bonus! The Historical Food Fortnightly journey has been fun for us and we hope fun for you to read. We have shared some recipes from mid-century cooking and we have also shared some photos and memories of our family. In this digital age it is still nice to have a book in hand and we plan to have this blog published in book form for our family to put on a shelf. Of course it will collect dust, but sometimes it will be fun to take off the shelf and share a laugh together as we so often do with the photo albums we have kept from years past. History can be as fun to share as good food!
I spent my high school years living on a farm and loved collecting fresh eggs. Eggs are still a staple in our diet although Patrick has switched to egg substitute following a heart surgery in 2005. Our bonus breakfast food challenge recipe was easy to find in our CBS Homemakers Exchange booklet from April, May, June 1950. Eggs Royale! Yum! With bread and bacon! Double yum!
|Circles cut from bread with a biscuit cutter.|
|Bread layered and buttered on both sides.|
|Bacon wrapped and pinned to the bread and baked at 375 degrees for 5 minutes.|
|Eggs sitting prettily in the bacon wells. NOT!|
|Eggs seasoned and back into the oven for 5 more minutes.|
|All together now - Awwwwwww!|
|And again - Awwwwwww!|
