A Breakfast Celebration

Breakfast-Special-2-LogoMmm, smell the bacon! How about some red-eye gravy on your grits? It’s time for Breakfast Special 2: Revenge of the Omelets, another PBS celebration of getting up and going out for a memorable morning meal. 

This delicious new documentary airs 7 p.m. Christmas night with a play of the original Breakfast Special immediately following.

There’s a diner in Connecticut, homemade biscuits in North Carolina, breakfast burritos and big pancakes in Pittsburgh. We find seaside specialties in New Hampshire, duck breast in Philadelphia, and salmon cakes in Detroit. On the Big Island of Hawaii, we sample loco moco, Portuguese donuts and scrumptious variations on all of the above!

Produced by popular PBS program-maker Rick Sebak (A Hot Dog Program, A Flea Market Documentary and A Ride Along The Lincoln Highway among others), this special is part travelogue, part food show, part tribute to the many men and women who get up early to make and eat our most important meal in unique and wonderful spots across the country. From coast to coast, cooks, servers, coffee drinkers and regulars at the counter all share their love and loyalty for breakfasts big and small.
