Fall 2006 I visited my American friend Debbie in USA and got to know the American breakfast. I promised my family to make American breakfast for them one day they all were home. I know that it is probably not usual to make all this at the same time in the homes for everydays, but in the restaurants you get it all. The first time I made it was Easter 2007 and this year it was the third time, then I think we can call it a tradition. I have good help from the cook book Far heter Daddy written by the American-Norwegian Craig Whitson. And I use the Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book which I got as a gift when I was i USA.
Her er påskefrokostbordet pyntet med påskeliljer og amerikansk flagg!
Here is the Easter breakfast table decorated with daffodils, which are called "Easter lillies" in Norwegian, and American flag.
Og her er maten: Foran fra venstre er det frokost pølser, laget som kjøttkaker etter Craig Whitsons oppskrift, siden de ikke finnes i Norge, og hash brown potatoes. På neste fat er det eggerøre og stekt bacon. Og så er det pannekaker med Aunt Jemima's syrup og melis som tilbehør. Bak er det "biscuits and gravy", biscuits på det store fatet og gravy som tilbehør i den hvite bollen. Gravy er nesten som Duppe i den norske retten Flesk og duppe. Og tilslutt er det kanelsnurreboller! Gjett om vi ble mette!
And here is the food: From left in the front it is Breakfast sausages, made as patties from Craig Whitson's recipe, since we don't have them in Norway, and hash brown potatoes. On the next dish is scrambled eggs and bacon. Then there is pancakes with Aunt Jemima's syrup and confectioner's sugar. Behind there is biscuits, and gravy in the white bowl. And at last Cinnamon Rolls.
