Kaukauna Restaurant [Chicken Fajitia Skillet]
Here is a million dollar questions- Why are eggs one of the very few breakfast foods? They come scrambled, on a sandwich, poached, in omelets, with bacon or sausage and as the picture below highlights, on top of skillets. As tired as I am of eggs, they always seem like the breakfast item of choice for me. Hell would have to freeze over for me to order a pancake. Anyways, after some deliberation (and egg hating talk) we decided that Kaukauna Family Restaurant was going to be the home of Thursday breakfast.
As we were walking in, something colorful and slightly amusing caught my attention. It was a jar filled with jellybeans. Want to guess what kind of game they were playing? That’s right. Guess how many jelly beans are in the jar. I took a guess and hopefully will be receiving a phone call in the next week from Kaukauna Family Restaurant, letting me know that my guess was the closest :). The restaurant was a typical family style dinner with booths and table scattered throughout. The waitress was very attentive and asked us if we wanted coffee before we even sat down.
Alaskans Do Waffles Right
The menu featured some unique items. One of them being an Alaskan Waffle, which was a waffle with your choice of fruit (strawberries, blueberries) with a scoop of ice cream, pecans, and whipped cream. It sounded a bit more like dessert than a breakfast item, but either way, sounded like a light and healthy breakfast. Just kidding. That dish was probably home to a couple hundred, if not a couple thousand calories. There was also a long list of skillets and all of them sounded pretty good. I went with the Chicken Fajitia Skillet, which sounded like something a bit different for breakfast.
It was not much different from the typical vegetable omelet, just prepared with the eggs on top. It was still a great breakfast dish and came with a side of (homemade?) salsa. The chicken in the skillet was a nice change-up. I mean usually its well past noon before I have my first serving of poultry. There were American fries on the bottom of the pile of vegetables and eggs, as well as a side of whole wheat toast. It was a filling breakfast for about $7. Go Check it out and guess how many jelly beans are in the jar!
