Here’s a breakdown of what we had:
Millennium Falcon Shooter
Inspiration: I had originally called this the Death Star Shooter. And I still feel good about that name. But then I remembered that tradition states that the Millennium Falcon was inspired by a hamburger with an olive randomly placed beside the burger. So naming a breakfast sandwich that kind of looks like a mini cheeseburger after the Millennium Falcon makes total sense. Right?
1 slider bun
1/2 sausage patty
1/2 of a fried egg
It makes the most sense to make two Shooters at a time, since you really don’t want to waste half of an egg. Or if you really really like a lot of egg, you could put a whole egg on the sandwich. On Saturday, I cut a pound of sausage into patties. Then I cut those patties in half again. I cooked them Saturday afternoon and put them in the fridge so that would be one less thing I had to do on Sunday morning. It’s crazy enough trying to get out of here in time for church on Sunday morning without having to wait for sausage to fully cook.
On Sunday morning, I fried an egg and cut it in half after it was done cooking. I sprinkled a little shredded cheddar cheese on it and placed the egg on a slider bun with a reheated mini sausage patty.
Viola! Awesome Falcon Shooters!
Princess Leia Cinnamon Roll
Inspiration: Come on. Really?
Pillsbury cinnamon rolls. A cop-out? Probably. But I’m OK with that.
Inspiration: The binary sunset on Tatooine. But I couldn’t really call this a sunset because it was for breakfast. So it really needed to be called a Sunrise.
I guess you could also say it was inspired by a tequila sunrise, too. But there isn’t any alcohol in it. Or grenadine. So we’ll just say that I came up with this all on my own. 🙂
3/4 glass of orange juice
splash of strawberry Sunkist
If I was thinking, I would’ve included 2 thin slices of clementine orange to represent the two suns of Tatooine.
Oh well. There’s always next year!
I think it’s safe to say that this year’s Star Wars breakfast for Star Wars Day lived up to the hype. It was pretty spectacular.
Happy Star Wars Day, everyone! What awesome things did you do to recognize the day?
