We all know that breakfast is the most important part of the day, but what about instead of just a day, you could have delicious breakfast at many of your favorite Arizona spots for a whole weekend at price points of only $7, $10, 0r $15 per person (or sometimes per couple). Sponsored by Hickman’s Family Farms eggs, many diners all over the valley will get to experience their favorite sweets, treats, and savory bacon-covered dishes or break outside their morning traditions and get outside their own neighborhood to try out a new spot or two (or three) thanks to Arizona Breakfast Weekend!
I recently had the pleasure of attending a media preview “brinner” (breakfast for dinner) at the Original Breakfast House in Phoenix where we literally filled the table with breakfast foods. We knew we were in for a breakfast experience of a lifetime when we were greeted at the door by Hickman the chicken for photos!
After a warm welcome from owner John Stidham, his friendly staff brought us out our first meal of the evening, a Pulled Pork Hash with Eggs (pictured). I’m drooling just thinking about it right now. Served with a side of BBQ sauce, pulled pork was mixed with potatoes, corn, and more, then topped with 2 fried eggs, was filling in itself, but that was just the beginning.
The friendly staff at the Original Breakfast House then acted as a well-oiled machine of homemade biscuits and gravy, jams, breads, brioche cinnamon rolls the size of my head (pictured), muffins, and four, YES FOUR types of pancakes. We devoured stacks of raspberry chocolate, gluten-free banana pecan, peach, and blueberry lemon curd (pictured).
As if I wasn’t already prepped for a massive carb-crash, the sweet breakfast angels of OBH swiftly cleared our tables and replaced the empty plate-sized space in front of me with the final course. Triple Berry French Toast. Deep fried and topped with fresh berries, powdered sugar, and a side of maple syrup, there really is nothing you can’t LOVE here.
So if you find that you are currently drooling and need to hop on this Arizona Breakfast Weekend train, clear the calendar for July 28-31 and click HERE to see the scheduled restaurants, menus, and price points.
