Pancake Tuesday

Today is Shrove Tuesday – also known as Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday and … Pancake Tuesday? As the day before Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent, pancakes were often made on this day as a way to use up rich foods like eggs, milk and sugar.

At Over Easy, we’ve got seven different types of pancakes, from the luscious Ricotta Pancakes to the classic buttermilk that you can gourmet up with M&Ms, Reese’s Pieces, chocolate chips or blueberries.

Finally, our Protein Pancakes can help those Lent cravings. They come loaded with quinoa, pecans, granola and blueberries.


3 Ways to Celebrate Hot Breakfast Month

February is National Hot Breakfast Month and a chance to take time for this most important meal of the day.  These days a hot breakfast is much more than bacon and hash browns. Here are three of our favorite updated takes on the morning meal sure to suit any diet.

Protein Bowl: Superfood quinoa and two sunny eggs are the one-two punch in this bowl that will keep you filled all morning. They’re topped with sausage, peppers, tomatoes and wild arugula.

Green Chili and Grits: Slow-cooked pork, green chili sauce and a sunny egg top a beautiful serving of black pepper parmesan grits.

Loko Moko: In this Hawaiian favorite, steamed white rice is covered in mushroom gravy, crispy onions and a ground beef patty. It’s topped with a sunny egg.


Viva La French Toast!

Eggy bread, poor knights’ pudding, Bombay toast – they’re all different names for the delicious combination of eggs, milk and bread that we know as French Toast. Celebrate National French Toast Day on Wednesday, November 28 with Over Easy’s take on this delicious breakfast favorite — our Nut Banana French Toast.

Over Easy’s Nut Banana French Toast, puts a bananas Foster riff on the French toast classic.

The buttery brioche is soaked in our secret recipe batter, griddled and topped with caramel, pecans and bananas. The indulgent dish hits all the right flavor notes you want in the morning.

Fun fact: In France, French toast is sometimes called “pan perdu,” or lost bread, because it was a way of using lost or stale bread.


Sandwiches for Breakfast

November 3 is National Sandwich Day honoring one of the most popular lunch items in America. But who says sandwiches should be limited to the mid-day meal? At Over Easy, we have two egg-topped sandwiches that satisfy any time of day.

As sandwich legend goes – the Lord of Sandwich was a notorious gambler who didn’t want to take a break to eat a meal. He asked that his meat be served between two pieces of bread. His fellow gamblers quickly took to ordering “the same as Sandwich.”

Our Breakfast Sandwich is as true to a sandwich’s purpose as any. The fried egg, thick bacon, sliced tomato and cheese is served between two halves of a toasted English muffin. It’s the perfect breakfast-on-the-go.

Our Cubano with Sunny Egg Sandwich puts slow cooked pork shoulder, ham, a pickle and Swiss cheese between a bun spread with mustard and spicy mayo. It’s also topped with a sunny egg for a perfect savory breakfast twist.

Why wait until noon to celebrate National Sandwich Day? These and our other sandwiches offerings are available all day.
