Bacon and Egg Burger – a Holiday Comfort Food

Add a yummy breakfast bacon and egg burger to your Christmas holiday comfort food menu.

Christmas shopping and holiday events often cause us to eat out more. Take a picture of your favorite foods that you order, and incorporate them into your holiday menu at home.

Dickens on the Strand

When my husband Greg and our friend, Doris, went to Galveston’s Dickens on the Strand, Greg and I had not eaten breakfast yet. We arrived around 10:45 a.m. and were very hungry.

Food Vendors

The Dickens event is always held the first weekend in December. There are many vendors including ones that sell food like turkey legs, fried Oreo cookies, and funnel cakes that smell so good especially when you’re ravenous.

We walked down Strand Street, referred to as “The Strand” where the event is held in Galveston. Stopping along the way to watch live entertainment, we became distracted from our hunger pangs.

Outdoor Restaurant with Christmas Choir

Next we discovered the perfect spot to eat, a restaurant with outdoor seating next to a stage where we listened to a choir singing Christmas carols and a handbell choir.

Hamburger and Egg

The best thing about my lunch was that it was a hamburger with a fried egg, similar to one of my recipes – Hamburger Steak (with a fried egg):

Part of Christmas season fun is going to events with friends and seeing cousins and other relatives at get-togethers. It’s a time when we give in to our family-favorite foods.

We tend to forget about the extra pounds we’re gaining from all the comfort food – until January quickly rolls around.

Does your family like to eat burgers during the Christmas season? After Thanksgiving, people often are ready for food other than chicken and dressing or turkey.

Hamburgers, or not, the December holiday season continues with more comfort food. What favorites do you suggest to add?
