Hunting and Fishing Breakfast Essentials

OK, I only slept 12 hours but woke quite hungry and with three days outdoor R and R planned. There were just the staples on hand, bacon, butter, bread, milk, sugar, seasoning, essential hunting and fishing electrolyte replacement liquid. (I'm a Jameson fan myself, but you have to make sure you have enough medicinal supplies for the whole family or crew).

What to make?

French Toast with Bacon and Maple Bourbon Butter

If your idea of a good breakfast is tea and toast, remember. I learned long ago, if you are going to hang around with the HOTR folks (pictured - the honorary Canadian HOTR division), you need to learn to make a HOTR breakfast.

And don't forget the electrolyte replacement. Don't want you all getting faint out there.


  1. The pictures alone are 400 calories!

  2. Is the Jameson's for adding to the batter, or for while you're making the batter?


    Best not to guess. Better do both.

  3. Oh that's a crowd :-) Good food too!

  4. Ohhhhh... I haven't had a real breakfast in so long.... Modern life is for the birds!

  5. Dang, I just finished eatin' supper and now I'm hungry again...

  6. Honorary HOTR Canadian division, indeed!!! And all red-blooded, Grade A certified, dyed-in-the-wool bacon eaters, though often it's Canadian Back Bacon!!

  7. Looks tasty.. We usually don`t mix sweet and meat, but this looks worth trying..

    Thanks, Brigid!

  8. Hi Brigid,

    I peeked at your recipe. Isn't a cup of vanilla a bit much for French toast? It would require two of the bottles shown in the picture for a cupful of vanilla.

    My mother grew up during the Depression and would only add a teaspoon in a much larger batch. For my part, I use about a tablespoon of vanilla in a batch your size.


  9. If the pic of the fly fishing guys, depict real Canadians, I really hope that the stogies that they are all puffing on are REAL Cubans, since in Canada, they do not have that silly embargo against Cuban products.

    Sigh, for a real Cuban once in a while.

  11. OMG! I haven't been to your site in awhile... I just saw the pic of the french toast with maple burbon butter. I need a napkin now to wipe up all the drool on my chin (and desk).
