“Southern Breakfast” a Fading Tradition


Author(s):
Abstract:
Traditional Southern breakfasts featured grits, homemade biscuits, country ham or sausage, red eye gravy, and eggs. This tradition, which appears to be fading, is now reserved for special occasions or holidays. Dr. Thomas K. Fitzgerald, a nutritional anthropologist at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, discusses the history and evolution of Southern food culture.
