Creme Brulee French Toast

I was trying to think of the single most delicious Roadfood dish of 2010 and, it being breakfast time, I was visited by an image of the creme brulee French toast at Mamie's in Roxbury, Connecticut. Competitors for best-remembered breakfast follow...

Sweet potato ham biscuits at Sting Ray's in Cape Charles, Virginia:

A goetta sandwich at Eckerlin's butcher shop in Cincinnati:


Granola at the Orange Inn, Laguna Beach, California:


The migas at Mecca in Dallas:


Pancakes at Mt. Magazine State Park in Arkansas:


Cherry strudel at Lucy's in Cleveland:


Plain but perfect bacon and eggs and grits at the Hominy Grill in Charleston:


Or maybe just a good old cake donut at Neil's in Wallingford, Connecticut:

Wow! They all look delicious, but those sweet potato ham biscuits from Stingray's look fantastic!

Cliff, they ARE fantastic. As a matter of fact, I will be passing that way after Christmas and plan to have a few more ... along with Sting Ray's excellent sweet potato pie.

I'm with Cliff, but the plate from the Hominy Grill runs a close second.

The french toast is stunning, the goetta captivating, the migas mighty inviting, but the Hominy Grill's offering is pretty darn bland looking.

Captain, you are correct in noting that there is nothing unusual about that Hominy Grill breakfast (maybe I should have posted a picture of Hominy's amazing shrimp & okra beignets or the "Big Nasty" biscuit), but in fact those are perhaps the best grits on earth, the bacon is sweet and smoky and double-thick, and the eggs are cackling fresh. Not unsual, but extraordinarily good.
