Milwaukee, WI Edition: Blue's Egg
A very hoity-toity dinner the previous night necessitated a good, comfort food breakfast the next morning. Blue's Egg serves up "modern, American" brunch food every day from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
There was a bit of a wait, so we hung out for a bit until we got a notification that our table was ready. The menu here is pretty impressive. It has everything from benedicts and omelettes to French toast and seafood crepes. Also, they serve "very stuffed browns," which are huge hash browns filled with some sort of delicious stuff. They have a pulled ham and sharp cheddar; an aged provolone, basil pesto and rich tomato sauce; a goat cheese with roasted olives and paprika aioli; a chicken chorizo, spinach and paprika aioli; and a roasted mushroom, creamy leeks, and herb creme fraiche.
I ordered French toast with sausage and a goat cheese hash brown.
Yum, yum yum. I love a good French toast, and this was a pretty good French toast. The syrup covered all four triangles of French toast to form this sticky sweet comfort food I love. The sausage was quite good - a little spice.
The hash brown was the star. Inside this perfect crisp hash brown was a mound of creamy goat cheese that I took little bits of to mesh with a bite of hash brown. The sauce on top was a bit spicy, and the olives added just a touch of bitter. It was quite good.
I actually find myself still thinking about that goat cheese hash brown. French toast is very good - but I can get that most places. That hash brown, though, I would love to get another.
