It’s airline food rumble time! Which egg breakfast is the best?
Our first contestant hails from MCO-LAX. Scrambled eggs with corned beef hash. The eggs were actually tasty, light and fluffy, the corned beef and potatoes were dry and stiff. It was accompanied by fruit and either a bagel or biscuit.
Fighting off the Scramble is Omelette. Being New York eggs (LGA-DFW), they were ready for a fight! After departure the flight attendant took orders from the last row of first class and then worked her way forward taking meal requests in order to the first row. American does this “back to front” ordering since this was an odd numbered flight. (On even numbered flights they take orders front to back, starting at the first row then moving towards the rear of the cabin.)
The flight attendant seemed to upset a few passengers by waking them to ask for their meal choice only to start the conversation with “did you want breakfast or did you want to sleep?” Once awake it seems like they went with breakfast. But those grumpy early risers shook their head and one got into a bit of a kerfuffle with the first class attendant.
It really wasn’t an omlette at all. More of a scramble. Actually more like a lot more of potatoes coated in egg. A lot of potatoes. All in all, it was pretty mediocre. I think the granola cereal would have been the winner.
And in this corner, also from LGA-DFW, standing in at an impressive 2 inches is Quiche! (update from Albert in the comments: Egg Strata!) A tall fluffy cheesey combination sure to please any grumpy early riser in New York city. This breakfast was served with a biscuit as well, but I snapped the pic too early. And since most people (except me!) were asleep this early, the windows were down and the lighting too dark.
And the winner is: ….
The Quiche Egg Strata. It was actually light and fluffy, but cereal is probably close behind in second place!
