Scott here, droppin’ my first post.
It seems Kate threw down a gauntlet of sorts with those awesome-looking biscuits, and I felt I had to respond in kind. It seems however, that she made a fatal error: serving them alongside something as healthy and enriching as a wonderful borscht.
Beets are an excellent source of Vitamin A, Potassium and high-quality vegetable-sourced iron. Cabbage is chock-full of Vitamin C and Indole-3-Carbinol, which boosts cellular repair and may even have powerful anti-cancer properties. Onions… heal sea urchin wounds if you tie them around your neck, apparently. Clearly, borscht is a nutritional powerhouse of a dish.
“Oh no,” thought I. “This will just not do.”
Something had to be done.
I headed out to the store, grabbed some ingredients, and got to work on the best breakfast sandwich I could think of. This was the result.
A large freshly-baked flat buttermilk biscuit, stuffed with aged cheddar cheese, a heavy-cream-laden omelet, and some peameal bacon glazed in plenty of maple syrup.
My arteries didn’t stand a chance.
