Hearty and Hale Winter Breakfast

Winter is a great time for a breakfast with a little more substance.  Zac and Caitlin introduced us to this humble breakfast kicked up a notch with a little bed of arugula .  Yes, it is definitely for those watching their weight as it will stick with you almost until dinner.  And even if it doesn’t; it is good for your soul; it is comfort food.  And it’s still winter.


First a bed or arugula topped with a freshly made biscuit. You might think that lettuce will do just as well. It will not.

Top the biscuit with sausage gravy made with a surprising simple combination of whole milk, flour, salt and pepper.

Multiply that by the number of people.

Then gently poach an egg in just under boiling water with a little salt and vinegar thrown in to help the egg keep its shape.

As a late breakfast, this will just about keep you full 'til dinnertime.

    Many in my family would love this and I have an Earthbox full of arugula.

    You are fortunate, Shari, because on New Year’s Day where Caitlin and Zac live we wanted to repeat this Christmas breakfast and arugula was a never before heard of item in their grocery store. And turns out that absolutely lettuce will not do.

    I think Miss Lisa B deserves a shout out as the one who introduced this to Caitlin. My husband still talks about this breakfast he had courtesy of her hard work one morning in Oregon. :)

    Here, here! Lisa deserves credit for this, I think her addition of arugula was genius! I think I need to make this soon…. very soon.

    Yep, Lisa is the ultimate house guest- home made biscuits before I even woke up Sunday morning! She certainly is lauded every time we make this dish!
