Good news everyone! Can't Post

I had the Hobbit Hole Breakfast at Denny's tonight for supper, and my friend (not a Hobbit fan) had Frodo's Pot Roast Skillet and.... both dishes were delicious! The bacon was done to perfection and oi do I love egg in the basket -- though this might be more appropriate for a V for Vendetta tie in, am I right?Laugh

The melt in your mouth pot roast was served over a bed of bite sized po-tay-toes, brocolli, and mushrooms which made for a dish (and flavour combination) that is easy to imagine a Hobbit serving. I would that there had been more mushrooms, but my buddy isn't keen on fungi so there were no points lost there.

And just so you can gauge how not a fan my friend is, I commented that it would have made more sense for their dish to be Sam's Roast Chicken Skillet and they had no idea why I would say such a thing.Angelic

All an all a great meal. Some fried tomato would have gone well on the side of my dish. But this is a Hobbit, not a LOTR promotion after all.

More onions, please! [In reply to] Can't Post

I thought that the pot roast skillet could have used more onion, but that's just me. I got most of my wife's onions from her Shire Sausage skillet anyway, so it worked out fine.

Did you happen to taste the sausage? [In reply to] Can't Post

I really wanted to try the Sausage Skillet but I'm very particular about cured meats. Did your love like it?

I did! But not on that visit... [In reply to] Can't Post

I am a bit fussy about sausages, myself. This was fairly heavily seasoned (but not "hot"); I found it pretty tasty. Your mileage may vary.

My sister informed me that she had the Gandalf Gobble Melt [In reply to] Can't Post

and she loved it. I was intrigued by that offering but didn't try it. It has no grounding in Middle-earth whatsoever, apart from Gandalf's name... that and from the photo in the menu it sort of looks like a spam sandwich with some peas stuck in here and there. Regardless my sis had one for lunch today and would not shut up about how delicious it was.

That's 4 for 4 by my count.

Okay, I give in! [In reply to] Can't Post

All this talk of breakfast on another thread has gotten me in the mood. Why do I need Olive Garden or Biaggi's on the next date night, when I can have an egg in a basket at Denny's? It's the height of Hobbit sophistication and I don't even need to dress up.

You'll see that in every contract. It's called a "sanity clause".
Ha-ha. You can't fool me. There ain't no Sanity Claus.

as we passed this really cool Denny's again on the way back today from bird-watching. He said he loves breakfast food any time of day, but we didn't stop. Not enough time today.

Good stuff [In reply to] Can't Post

I've had the Hobbit Hole Breakfast and the Sausage Skillet. I enjoyed both. My wife and her sister both love the Ring Burger. Actually, I had a few bites of my wife's ring burger and it was quite good. The fries weren't bad either. The sausage is very-well seasoned, but suits my taste nicely. We ordered the red velvet pancake puppies and the seed cake french toast as appetizers. They were also enjoyable. In fact, my wife can't get enough of the puppies and she doesn't even claim to like red velvet. What else? We ordered pumpkin patch pancakes for my daughter and I really enjoyed those too. I wonder if I eat too much of my family's food for them.

Between the two visits to Denny's that allowed us to try all the aforementioned goodies, we came home with six packs of collectible trading cards. They are pretty good quality. Basically, each card is a glossy photo of a character with a description on the back. There are only twelve cards to collect; two are exclusives (Gandalf and Bilbo). I got the exclusive Gandalf, but not the Bilbo...yet. I've had only a couple of repeats. Other cards collected so far are: non-exclusive Bilbo, non-exclusive Gandalf, Balin, Galadriel, Radaghast, Gollum, Fili, Kili, and Thorin. I'm assuming the last card is Dwalin to go along with Balin. We'll see if I get it.

To our reporter on the street, Mr. Bombadil, [In reply to] Can't Post

bon appetit! The pumpkin pancakes sound good. Now the question is, are there maple trees in Middle-earth or do hobbits have honey or jam on their pancakes?Smile

Lol Great Report Bomby [In reply to] Can't Post

Bomby, did the pancakes taste like pumpkin pie? If so, i'll have to try them next time out.

...and a Kili card eh? There's a keeper... I haven't opened my package yet.

Did you know that sweet syrup can be made from a few varieties of tree, apart from maple. If they were really on their toes they would have Mallorn syrup on the side. Wink

Hi, Moahunter, I saw this review, too, [In reply to] Can't Post

and thought he sounded just a tad (HA!) snobbish. One can choose to order gloriously greasy dishes in just about any restaurant just about anywhere in the world, or not, and I wouldn't say no if Sam offered me some nice crispy bacon and sausages. Denny's still has a reputation for family friendly food, cleanliness and pleasant service where I come from. Bring on the Pumpkin Patch Pancakes, sausages...and pie!

They have something called The Ring Burger [In reply to] Can't Post

You can view menu copy and photos here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...t-men_b_2009741.html

The Ring Burger may look like a heart attack on a bun but if you took it apart and ate the various elements individually it would probably be okay.* It sure looks tasty!
