Thanksgiving Day breakfast?

The turkey meal gets all the attention, but does *anyone* have any traditions for Thanksgiving Day breakfast?

  1. Sleep, I need the energy for the feast of Turkey and Pumpkin Pie later. Oh yea, then come home to a good a movie to let it all digest, some sleep, then maybe some shopping after.

    1. I make homemade cinnamon rolls for Thanksgiving if I have overnight guests or if I'm going to someone else's house for Bfast. If I'm alone, it may or may not be toast or a bowl of cereal...don't want to spoil my dinner!

      1. We always have a piece of pumpkin pie for breakfast. It sets the tone for the day and then we don't have to try to cram it in at the end of a big meal when we're already full later on.

          Ditto. Pumpkin pie or bread with coffee

        2. True story--my husband likes to get a couple of sliders from White Castle when he goes there to pick up the burgers (hold the pickles!) he uses for his famous White Castle stuffing.

          If it's open, I like to go to the Vietnamese Bakery down the street from W.C. for a croissant+Vietnamese coffee and, if the Thanksgiving meal is scheduled for mid-afternoon, a banh mi sandwich (to save for lunch).

          Otherwise, just a poached egg and dry toast and coffee.

            If I still lived in NY, I'd go to White Castle to get a couple also but not for the stuffing although I'll bet that it's delicious in that too! White Castle is my absolute favorite burger; now look what you've done :-(

              Oh, I'm so sorry! Do they at least carry them, frozen, in the the grocery stores where you are?

              The W.C. stuffing is actually pretty good. (I was skeptical my first time...) It's a little on the soggy side, but it tastes great!

              Happy Thanksgiving!

                Yes, they have frozen at the grocer's and it's nothing but a tease...nothing like straight from the griddle...

                1. re: Cherylptw

                  True, although, I'd bet they'd work for the turkey stuffing! (You'd have to pick off the pickles).

                    You're probably right, I'm going to have to experiment with that idea!

          2. Turkey giblets and scrambled eggs, with toast. Delicious!
