Opening two days in a row can be pretty tiring, I'm glad I have good breakfast and blog time to look forward to! Today's breakfast is the Beckham- Two eggs over easy, applewood smoked bacon, roasted Yukon potatoes, and grilled French Baguette. Once again, it's a a whole lot of food. If I were to see someone eat the entire thing, I would be seriously impressed.
This breakfast entree is named after...guess who?? David Beckham. At the time the dish was introduced, Beckham was the #1 athlete in the world, but realtively unknown in America, since soccer is not very popular here compared to the rest of the world. The Laundry thought to give him some extra exposure in Fenton, MI with what has become one of our most popular breakfasts.
It's easy to see why this is so popular- It's incredibly basic. There's no lox, or blue cheese, or anything for you to be scared of here. It's just a very well made, traditional breakfast. The grilled baguette is a nice twist to what would normally be toast, and the roasted Yukons have a great garlic flavor (which I'm sure will lead to great breath).
I like this breakfast favorite. I'm getting used to over easy eggs for breakfast, but if I were to order this on my own I would order them scrambled or over hard. Anyway, I can see why this is a favorite of many, and the name is especially easy to remember since Beckham is so good looking!
