Gram's St. Paul Breakfast

Shelley Young


My Gram would fry some onions and bacon, add scrambled eggs, and call it "a St. Paul". When I was a kid I loved this aromatic breakfast. Add coffee and toast for a complete old-fashioned breakfast. Why did she call it a St. Paul? Your guess is as good as mine.
