Over the weekend we met an old friend at Three Little Birds, a cafe in our neck of the woods. One day, I’ll show you its quaint, vine-covered exterior; its warm, Americana-styled interior; and how the entire Gravy Family has been enchanted by the place. But for now, let me just show you the dish that’s created our catchphrase this week: “SWEET POTATO BENEDICT!”
What exactly is a sweet potato benedict? Why, it’s two perfectly poached eggs perched on top of a flaky, delicious sweet potato biscuit. It’s lightly pan-seared slices of Southern ham. It’s a delicate Hollandaise drizzled on top. It’s cheesy stone-ground grits puddled around the biscuits, soaking them ever-so-slightly like a good sauce.
It is, on a plate, the embodiment of a good Sunday brunch with friends and family. That’s why, all week, as the weather has gotten colder, the hubby and I have been warming each other with those kind words:
Sweet. Potato. Benedict.
