Kick start your day with a good breakfast

Breakfast on the Jersey Shore

on September 21, 2013

I’m baaaaack…bronzed and relaxed and…full! Nick & Betty’s slings a real he-man breakfast pretty much every morning of the year, starting at 4:30am on the weekend for fishermen.

If you're in the area...807 SW Central Ave  Seaside Park, NJ

Here’s my he-man husband striding in for his first serving of scrapple of the week. Does anybody know where scrapple comes from? My Chuck is convinced it’s a close relative of Scotland’s famous haggis which leads to me to believe the Scots brought it with them when they immigrated to the ore-rich mountains of Pennsylvania.

For those of you who have never had the pleasure of downing a deep-fried slab of ground pork, grain, and spices, here’s a photo. Delicious, no?

Did I tell you they serve he-man portions?

That’s the scrapple on the left. May I say it again? It’s delicious.

Now some people in the Jersey Shore/Philly nexus swear by pork roll.

This is the more ladylike order: fried egg, cheese, and pork roll on a Kaiser roll.

Me? My mother’s mother’s family was Scottish, so I’m going with the scrapple. But either is hearty enough to send anyone out on a boat before dawn to battle the forces of nature and bring home the riches of the sea.
