The day after a home gameday for citizens of any college town frequently means you provided a bed at night and you're providing some breakfast in the morning. Bed-and-Breakfast!
|Brilliant! Waffle Biscuits
At one Gameday Style insdier's house, she served one of our favorites, Paula Deen's Pecan Praline French Toast Casserole. She discovered it because it was a breakfast option she could make ahead and freeze. Such a smart girl. On Sunday morning, she popped the thawed casserole into the oven, made a fruit salad and loads of coffee and tea (we all had late nights) for her brothers and sisters in town from Indiana. Make this and make your guests happy:

We messaged an offensive line coach's wife in the Big XII, who we knew had her husband's sister and cousins in town for the game:
"What'd y'all have for breakfast this morning? I'm talking about what we all do for breakfast when people stay over after games on the blog"
"We had waffle biscuits for breakfast....yummy"
"What are waffle biscuits?"
"You buy the cheap cheap biscuits and put them in the waffle iron. My kids love them!"
Brilliant! Cheap biscuits are the best. They are like a hockey puck when you just eat them for what they are...a biscuit. But when you make Monkey Bread, Cheese Bread or Waffle Biscuits, they are absolutely perfect.
Here is a great recipe for Waffle Biscuits over at www.plainchicken.com. Plain Chicken is a fantastic food blog done by Steph, a college football fan herself and football Saturday chef. Her blog deserves a post in itself for the football food there. Coming soon!
Our post title "Morning After Gameday" takes on an entirely new meaning when you look at the Oklahoma State at Tulsa game on Saturday. David Ubben, at ESPN.com, gave an update at 12:16am that the game was finally underway. The Tulsa World reported the game ended at 3:35am. No one had any idea they'd be eating popcorn and hot dogs at 2:00 in the morning, did they? Weren't those faithful fans wishing for some French Toast Casserole and Waffle Biscuits?!
