Pie for Breakfast...

It really is the perfect breakfast item..flaky crust, fresh fruit filling and a strong cup of coffee.
How great is that.

      +1 on the apple/cheddar combo for brekkie.

        Is the apple pie/cheddar combo a regional thing? i've ordered it in numerous places and often get looks like I had a third eye. Personally, I love it.

          I think it is very northeast. Very popular in New England and the Pa Dutch country. Unheard of in New Mexico.

            if you say so... it's definitely a wisconsin thing.

              1. re: Passadumkeg

                honestly, i think it's just a function of the area producing both great apples and great cheese.

                though the area grows other great fruit, and i don't see folks eating cheese with their door county cherry pie. hmm. but yeah, there are some germans in wisconsin, for sure.

                While it is not exactly prevalent, it is not unheard of in the deep south.

            +++ for grandma's authentic apple pie with cheddar melted atop, good grief, so good

                +1. or just fold the filling into your yogurt...or oatmeal.

              2. Cold apple pie with a cup of coffee.

                Nothing is finer on an autumn Sunday morning.

                  1. whenever i host Thanksgiving i always send my guests home with about 95% of the leftovers. but the one year my sister came out to spend the holiday with me, she hid the rest of my apple-cranberry tart in the back of the fridge before i could wrap it for everyone because she wanted it for breakfast!
