Chicken Fried Steak Recipe – Weekend Breakfasts At My House

When I was growing up, it was etched in stone  that the family had a big Saturday breakfast together; often my dad cooked the elaborate set-up, which might have been steak and eggs, pancakes or waffles, fruit turnovers, sausage or bacon. It got so that friends of me and my siblings wanted to do sleepovers on Friday nites just for the […]

Banquet Frozen Chicken Fried Steak Meal

Another in a line of inexpensive frozen “dinners”, the Banquet brand (ConAgra) Chicken Fried Beef Steak Dinner comes with a breaded meat patty, whipped potatoes, cream gravy, and kernel corn.

Claim Jumper Frozen Chicken Fried Steak

Isn’t it amazing how fast food has permeated our lives?   Not only do we grab a meal on the go in our car, but now we have scads of restaurant-branded food in the grocery stores.  Were White Castle Burgers first?   Now we can get Taco Bell products, TGI Fridays, myriad pizzas, Marie Callender’s, and now, […]

Boston Market Country Fried Steak Review

Bear with me as I take you on this journey of magical heat and eat meals. Today’s example, “Boston Market” Country Fried Steak. A frozen entree, with mash potatoes and cream gravy. Boston Market, like many companies, does not actually produce this product, but licenses their name to  Bellisio Foods, a company I know a bit […]

DQ Chicken Fingers Review

Started in Illinois in the 1940s, Dairy Queen (now owned by Warren Buffet) is based in a Minneapolis suburb and has over 6500 stores in 27 countries. Over the past few years, they have been adding hot food items to their ice cream only stores. I set out to have a Warren Buffet burger today, […]

Circle A Ranch Country Fried Beef

I’ve written a whole lot about  the products from Cincinnati-based Advance Pierre, the premiere “heat and eat” and “gas station sandwich” maker in the U.S.  Often, besides in vending and C-stores, you’ll find their frozen products at dollar stores. You know how much I love chicken fried steak?  I’ve tried it all over the country, both […]

Lamberts Review – Sikeston, MO

Always been curious about this place, which advertises heavily along the interstate. They also have another Missouri location and one in Foley, Alabama. They are known for “throwed rolls” – servers walk around the room with tins full of piping hot popovers, diners raise their hands, and a roll is pitched to them. (Note of […]

Cafe Olympic Review – Crystal Lake, IL

As in any major metropolitan area, one has a multitude of breakfast choices in Chicago and its environs. An awful lot of the eateries are owned, or were started by Greeks, so it’s not unusual to see a co-mingling of Greek and American cuisines, regardless of the time of day. To wit: “scrambled eggs with […]

Red Apple Pancake House Palatine Review

Back in the Chicago burbs to see a client, usually disagreeable in January (the weather, not the client), but it’s 45 today. I wanted breakfast and headed for one of my usual haunts, the Palatine Inn, but drove by Red Apple Pancakes and decided to give that a whirl. Glad I did. Deceptively small from […]
