On today’s blog of don’t knock it to you try it Tasty Thursday, I’m bringing you a breakfast staple in my house growing up!

Growing up, I was never a cereal kid. My father was retired before I was in second grade, and prior to that, my mom was a stay at home mom. We always had real food for breakfast. Grits, eggs, biscuits, fried chicken, rice with butter and sugar. Not all together of course.

What is this dish you ask? I’m calling it Papa’s Toast. It’s a piece of toast, topped with one slice of American cheese, and to that you add, crumbled bacon, sliced boiled egg, and sweet pickles. Now before you judge and frown, it’s an unlikely combination that’s absolutely delicious together! Everyone, and I mean everyone I’ve made it for has loved it! Bet you can’t eat just one.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Ingredients List:

• White or Wheat Bread

• Eggs

• Bacon

• American Cheese

• Sweet Pickles


⁃ Amount of ingredients will depend on how many you want.

⁃ Boil eggs – always begin with cold water. (1 egg per toast) Place uncooked eggs in a pot of cold water. Place on stove and turn on medium high heat. Once the water begins to boil, cook for 7-10 minutes. Once done, immediately drain and place in cold water. This will stop the cooking. Peel and dice.

⁃ While the eggs are boiling, turn your oven to broil, dice up slices of bacon and cook in a skillet over medium heat until crispy. Drain and place on a paper towel.

⁃ Dice up sweet pickles

Now it’s time to assemble!

Top 1 slice of bread with a slice of american cheese and place in the broiler. Toast until melted with just a bit of dark. It will start to bubble.

Remove the toast and top with diced eggs, crumbled bacon, and diced sweet pickles. Eat and enjoy.

If you make this, I’d love to know!

P.S…kid friendly, and kid approved

Until next time…💛

  • This took me completely out of my comfort zone (low key had bubble guts filming), but I told myself that I was coming for everything I wanted in 2019, and the #mtyretreatcontest is on my list! 
I can remember several years ago when @myleik followed my personal page after I tagged #curlbox in a photo. I almost lost my mind! I’ve followed her journey and have always admired her hustle! 
For this contest, you needed to upload three 59 second videos of the following:

1. Tell me a bit about yourself 
2. What do you think everyone should do at least once in their lives? Why?

3. What are some things you’ve had to unlearn?

My word of 2019 is LEAP and I’m leaping right into the #mtyretreatcontest
