Chex Mix for Breakfast

By | Oct 2, 2014

Here I am, a 56 year old guy, sitting with a cup of coffee and eating a breakfast of Chex Mix. Does that seem strange? Why not Chex Mix for breakfast?

Even though many would consider it a snack, most of the contents of the package could be considered a cereal. Cereal is a common breakfast item. And I’m sure it’s healthier than what I really want.

That would be a sandwich made of scrapple, egg and cheese on wheat toast. The only really healthy item there would be the wheat toast.

What’s Scrapple? The dictionary defines it as “cornmeal mush made with the meat and broth of pork, seasoned with onions, spices and herbs and shaped into loaves for slicing and frying.” It’s a rural American food of the Mid-Atlantic states (Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia). It originated in the Eastern Pennsylvania farmland by the Pennsylvania Dutch, German immigrants of the area.

But let’s be serious. It’s made of what’s left over after the standard cuts of meat are butchered off of the pig. All of these items are cooked together then all but the broth and meat are discarded. This is mixed with cornmeal and formed as a loaf. A 1/4 inch slice off of the loaf is fried.

I imagine now that you’ve read about scrapple, you are thinking that Chex Mix does make for a nice breakfast. That is until you have tried a sandwich of Scrapple, Egg and Cheese on Wheat Toast.
