Helen's Famous Sausage House - Fri, 04/11/03 8:36 AM

Maybe it's just the cholesterol talking but, it's funny how roadfoodies venture out to new lands, in Star Trek fashion, to find the quintessential road food experience but, maybe along the way forget about or take for granted those places closer to home. I thought I would mention, or maybe gloat, that that's not the case with me, at least not at the moment, as I down a sausage sandwich for breakfast from Helen's. We in our cubicles here don't take for granted one bit that our coworker lives near there and graciously brings up a dozen or so every now and then. Ah, here take a look- egg, cheese, two sausage links, onions and peppers.

Oh, you lucky person, you! I often gaze fondly at my picture of Helen's pork chop sandwich, dreaming of the next visit:

ah yes, the pork chop with the bone in it sandwich. Some say it doesn't really exist, even when staring in disbelief at one. Myself? Have not attempted it. Two reasons- Timing has limited me to breakfast at Helen's. I don't know why but a pork chop isn't breakfast to me but, thre sausage links, egg and cheese is. Second, I don't know what the etiquette is for eating one. Do you just eat around the bone? Is it just like eating a pork chop without utensils? Would that be gauche? Would anyone care?

I have relatives who have lived in Smyrna for over 20 years and have never been here. Can you imagine? What a great little, unassuming restaurant this is! As good (and big) as the pork chop sandwich is, I also love their regular sausage breakfast sandwiches, both with or without egg. And how can you possibly resist a place where the tiny eating area is decorated as a tribute to Elvis?

In Smyrna, Delaware just north of Dover. There is a review and photos for it under restaurants.

I ate at Helen's Sausage House in Smyrna, DE again this past Saturday and it was every bit as good as I remember. Don't ask me to choose between the sausage sandwich with peppers and onions or the pork chop sandwich. They are both excellent. I need to add this place to my top 10 breakfast places.
