June 14, 2017

A sweet combination of two of the greatest meals in a day, brunch is becoming more of a staple in dining than breakfast or lunch on the weekends. The mid-morning meal offers the best of both worlds on a menu for anyone in search of a satisfying meal, especially on the weekend.

BREAKFAST BURRITO

Leading off the brunch selections is the breakfast burrito. Egg, potato and cheddar cheese in a flour tortilla smothered with house made pork green chili. Not only can the burrito be enjoyed as is, but adding an additional meat takes it to the next level.
 
Chorizo, bacon, sausage, Canadian bacon or veggie sausage are all options to enhance this staple of the menu and guarantee you leave both full and satisfied. Check out this amazing breakfast burrito recipe.

THE KITCHEN SINK

PB&J FRENCH TOAST

Another tasteful option for brunch the peanut butter and jelly french toast is a step-up and reincarnation of the childhood staple PB&J. This hot off the griddle french toast is stuffed with peanut butter and jelly, served with seasonal fruit, maple syrup and butter.
 
For those serious about brunch, the PB&J French Toast can be paired with two eggs of any style and a choice of meat to create a complete meal.

DJ’S TOAD IN A HOLE

One of DJ’s Cafe specialites, the Toad in a Hole is worth the trip. Bringing people in from miles around on a regular basis and those visiting the Denver area when in town, the Toad in a Hole is a classic example of brunch excellence.
 
Two pancakes studded with crispy bacon and an egg cooked right into the middle of each, this menu item is hard to pass up. On a menu full of variety and extremely tasteful treats, the Toad in a Hole is in a class by itself.

BENEDICTS & OMELETS

Egg Benefits: Tips From One of the Best Denver Restaurants


June 7, 2017

The age old question, “which came first: the chicken or the egg?” remains today. However, the multiple benefits from eating chicken eggs are a question no longer. Many popular breakfast foods are composed of eggs and their versatility in the kitchen extends over many other popular ingredients. One of the best restaurants in Denver, DJ’s Cafe, offers the impressive benefits of eggs throughout their menu.
 
A prime example of an egg’s flexibility is it can be eaten raw or cooked. While deciding to consume raw eggs is a personal preference, many of the same health benefits can be achieved by partaking of an egg in this fashion. However, the risk of bacteria and in particular, Salmonella, is concerning and increased when consumed raw. For these reasons, almost all restaurants will not serve eggs in this form.
 
A good thing considering there remain many more enjoyable ways to prepare, eat and reap the benefits from eggs. Just to name a few eggs can be individually served hard boiled, scrambled, over easy or poached.
 
While enjoyable when consumed on their own, eggs are also key ingredients in a variety of other breakfast and brunch favorites. These include omelets, French toast and quiches. Depending on preparation and pairings the health benefits obviously vary but eggs remain one of the healthiest foods on the planet.

Proteins and Vitamins

One large egg contains six grams of high-quality protein and a wide variety of vitamins and minerals. Vitamins B2 (riboflavin) and B12 (cobalamin) which produce both energy and red blood cells, respectively, are ingested along with Vitamins A (retinol) and E (tocopherol). Both of the latter are good for your eyesight and protection against certain toxins.

Cholesterol

Compared to other foods, eggs contain a large amount of cholesterol (186 mg). However, according to Dr. Francisco Lopez-Jimenez of the Mayo Clinic, “the effect of egg consumption on blood cholesterol is minimal when compared with the effect of trans fats and saturated fats.” Meaning the cholesterol content inside eggs will likely not have such a detrimental impact as originally thought.

Weight Loss

The combination of protein at breakfast and weight loss is considerable. Often considered the most important meal, breakfast can help kick start your metabolism and ensure less unhealthy snacking throughout the day.
 
These are just a few of the reasons eggs are so beneficial, adding to a healthy diet. At DJ’s Cafe there are multiple options available on both the breakfast and brunch menus for your egg needs. Consider some of the following solo options when visiting: Two Eggs Breakfast, Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs or the Breakfast Burrito.
 
Both menus also include a wide array of benedict options for your tasting pleasure: Classic Eggs Benedict, California Benedict, Crab Cakes Benedict, Smoked Salmon Benedict, Pulled Pork Benedict and a New Mexico Benedict.
 
Finally, there are options available for chef created omelets or build your own by adding any combination from a number of ingredients.
