Perfect Summer Breakfast by Deb Lisa Daily

Fifteen Minutes of Shame by Lisa Daily

My favorite summer food, also my favorite thing of all time to eat for breakfast is simple and amazingly delicious.

When my mother was growing up, she had a peach tree in her back yard, and every year they had far more peaches than they knew what to do with.

I suspect this is why my family recipe books are jammed with peach tarts, peach pie, peach cobbler, peach salad, and well, peach jam.

I imagine that my favorite family recipe was probably just the product of my industrious Grandma Vernie’s desire to find yet another use for peaches, but it is a favorite of mine, my mother’s, my aunt’s and now my daughter’s.

Slice 4-5 peaches into small, bite sized pieces, put into a bowl and sprinkle with sugar. Mix. (Now there’s a real shocker — sugar! In one of my family recipes!)

Toast 8 slices of whole wheat bread, slather with butter when toast is hot out of the toaster.
Cover each slice of toast liberally with peaches.
Serves 4 normal people (or 2 -3 in my family.)

Try it. It sounds strange, but it is delicious. If I ever open a restaurant, this will be my signature dish. 🙂
