Two eggs cookingThere are a lot of great options for breakfast. Some of the great ones are big, fancy plates that take a fair amount of time and ingredients to prepare. But great things can also be had from simplicity.

That’s exactly what you get with our two egg breakfast at Perko’s. It might not sound like a whole lot, and some mornings, that’s exactly what your appetite is craving.

Eggs are the perfect start to any breakfast, and based on the name of this dish, you obviously can expect two of them cooked the way you want them. Those eggs come served with potatoes and your choice of pancakes, toast, or a fresh blueberry muffin. If you’ve ever heard that great things come in small packages, here’s your proof.

Order a glass of orange juice to go with it, and you’ll have yourself an all-around basic, but still excellent breakfast!

Breakfast Steak

Thursday, August 20th, 2015

steakPicture a tender, juicy, perfectly-cooked steak. Pair that with your favorite side dish. It makes for a picture-perfect dinner, right? Think again. While a steak dinner may be a succulent splurge at suppertime, what about steak for breakfast?

 Cold cereal, hot oatmeal, or a slice of toast may sound like a traditional breakfast, but most of those meals lack any protein. Protein can help fuel your body, and help keep you fuller—longer—so instead of needing a mid-morning snack, you’ll be satiated until lunch. It’s the reason so many people opt for breakfast choices like eggs or Greek yogurt.

 So, now, go ahead, and picture that steak again. Only picture it for breakfast. Paired with three eggs, hash browns, and a traditional biscuits and gravy, our New York Steak and Eggs will not only leave you satiated, but coming back for more.
