Denny’s is no longer offering their Hobbit menu… So now it’s up to me to recreate some of our favs from it and relive the fond memories of opening night of The Hobbit!
First up on the list… The Hobbit Hole Breakfast. Eggs cooked in the middle of a cheddar cheese bun, bacon, sausage and hash browns covered with cheddar cheese and bacon crumbles.
Here’s my version… The Bag End Breakfast. I’ve always wanted to live at Bag End, and if I did, I’m sure I would eat this all the time!!! Two eggs grilled into the center of a Dutch Crunch roll, tater tots tossed with sausage crumbles (our homemade savory breakfast sausage, no less), and sautéed mushrooms, onions and peppers. I forgot the cheese, but I was going to sprinkle cheese over the tater tots, too! It’s just one of those comfort food kind of meals. Mmmm!!!
While your tater tots are baking in the oven, cook up some sausage in a skillet.
The trickiest part is cutting the centers out of the rolls with a biscuit cutter. Oh, but first you should cut them in half…
“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, not yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.” Chapter 1 of The Hobbit
