Default Re: Breakfast Skillets Work

Thank you. The breakfast skillets reminded me of how portions of food have gotten out of control. Pre 1960 breakfasts often included one egg - one medium sized egg. A typical US breakfast was one egg, two strips of bacon, a half cup of potatoes or grits and toast. This is what the breakfast skillet was designed to cook. Once you add more it becomes tricky to get one to work right.

If you start with 3 strips of streaky bacon, a cup of potatoes and 2 extra large eggs (what Australians call Bumbusters), you will have to play games to make a breakfast skillet work for you. Sensible portions, no problem. I had to play games above. Not next time.
