Brunch is the perfect combination of elegance and comfort food. However, while you may treasure your mimosas and adore your stuffed French toast, do you actually know where these delectable dishes got their start? You might be surprised at how they made their way firmly onto the menus of the best restaurants in the DFW area, and you might be tempted to try a new brunch dish yourself this coming weekend. Here is a quick look at the delicious delights that you can find on the brunch menus of the best restaurants in the DFW area.
Chicken and Waffles
Sweet and savory, the combination of chicken and waffles is like music in your mouth. It is no surprise, then, that the dish, invented in the 1600s in Pennsylvania, became popular first on the music scene. Originally, it was served as a dish to satisfy musicians who would finish their work in the wee hours of the morning, and who enjoyed a combination of the dinner they had missed and the breakfast they had not yet eaten.
While famous restaurants to serve chicken and waffles include Wells Supper Club in Harlem and Roscoe’s in Hollywood, you can find some pretty tasty versions at the best restaurants in the DFW area today. Ours includes spicy maple syrup to accompany perfectly fried chicken and light but flavor-packed waffles.
The best restaurants in DFW will have eggs Benedict on the menu because the combination of ham, poached eggs, English muffins, and Hollandaise sauce are, quite simply, a magical assortment of flavors. This dish is perfect for brunch, and is always a crowd pleaser amongst brunch enthusiasts, and honestly, anyone that enjoys delicious food.
The incredibly versatile combination of bread dipped in an egg and milk mixture may be called French toast, but it didn’t actually originate in France. Its origins may belong more with the Roman Empire, where they dipped bread in an egg mixture and fried it. Its name’s origins are about as fuzzy as what actually constitutes French toast. An egg mixture and bread fried together are the only requirements.
After that, the sky is the limit when it comes to how to make it, top it, and stuff it. Regardless of your choice of bread, from Brioche, Challah, or even plain old sandwich bread, just try it in a mixture of egg, milk, and vanilla, and you’re almost there. The final step is to top it with anything you desire. Common toppings typically include butter, syrup, fruit, and whipped cream.
