Breakfast of Champions

Posted by rhill2990, Aug 22, 2009.

I could not resist posting this item. We grilled beef tenderloin last evening and had some left over. So I had to have steak and eggs this morning. I also had just a bit of an inexpensive but very nice Cabernet left over also. I had to have the Cabernet with my breakfast. Pretty good pairing, the tannins in the wine cut the little bit of grease in the eggs nicely. Maybe I ought to try this more often.

I think wine with breakfast is under appreciated.

Rhill, do you, by any chance, have some French in your family background... ;-)

You know dm, you are a prince among men. You are one of only a few who have responded to me on this website. I enjoy your company. Salut.

Sounds like something I may have done in my bachelorhood. Expect the steak would have been cold pizza and the Cab would have been the left over $10 local liquor store special from the party the night before.

I prefer your breakfast better.

Thanks, rhill, and I've enjoyed hear about your visits to wineries I never would have known of.

BTW, I was referring to a number of bars/cafes and homes in France, and even French-speaking Switzerland (boy was that a shock to me on first encounter, considering the general sobriety of that nation), where wine makes a regular appearance at breakfast...

I rarely have left over wine for breakfast but then I rarely have left over wine.

Sounds like a great way to start the day. How did you follow that up?

It was just a very small amount of wine. My wife and I have been spending the weekend with my stepson, who is taking a break from Law School at the University of Virginia.
