French Toast Club

The French Toast Club is served at The Scrambled Diner in Dyer. The dish costs $9.50.

DYER — If you take a seat at any of the Region's breakfast establishments, menus don't fall short of offering a plethora of options or combos.

So many things sound good, but how does one choose? Sweet, syrupy pancakes or french toast? Chewy and crunchy hash browns or bacon?

The Scrambled Diner, 250 W. 81st Ave., solves any case of indecisiveness with its massive French Toast Club. This creation is stacked like a sandwich, starting with french toast pieces. Stuffed between them are slices of American cheese, an egg done whichever style you want and a big strip of bacon. It's hard to hold, so a fork and knife might be recommended for this one.

It's the best of all worlds as each bite caters to the breakfast food spectrum's sweet, salty and chewy variances. It's similar to pigs in a blanket, which features sausages wrapped in pancakes, or a McDonald's McGriddle. But the Scrambled Diner's creation will put that puny Mickey D's option to shame.

The restaurant also features other signature items such as the Tangled Up in Blue omelet, The Garbage skillet and Monkey Cakes. Eating inside is a delight as the dining area is filled with the sounds and smells of breakfast cooking and coffee brewing.
