The Farewell Rudy, Hello Rhodella was named after Mark Hamel's Aunt Rudy, who is Luana's sister. Her given name was Rhodella, but everyone called her Rudy. She died a few years ago, around the time when Mark bought his classic truck. In honor of his Aunt, he named his truck Rhodella, assuming that the chance of someone else using that name was a stretch. He named this breakfast in honor of his aunt as well.
I thought that this breakfast would be similar to the Norma and Floyd's but it is actually quite different. I think that the biggest difference is due to the type of meat used in the hash. This breakfast is made with a chuck roast hash, while the other is made with a corned beef hash. In all honesty, I liked the Farewell Rudy a lot better. It ended up being a really good breakfast, especially with the eggs and farm toast.
I'm glad I tried this because now I understand the differences between the two breakfasts that seem kind of similar on our menu. It was very surprising, and in a good way. Give it a try and see what I mean!
