The July/August issue of Food Network Magazine, which hits newsstands June 29, is naming the best breakfast in all 50 states.
The supposed tastiest in Idaho? The oatmeal soufflé at the Red Feather Lounge in Boise.
Writes the magazine: "Customers clamor for the coveted seats on the outdoor patio here, and they get downright desperate for the oatmeal soufflé: The chef makes only about a dozen on weekend mornings, and they often sell out within an hour or two. The cult favorite is something between a trumped-up bowl of oatmeal and a dressed-down dessert—hearty and light at the same time and just a little sweet. Make sure you show up before 10 a.m. if you want to snag one."
I’ve heard the Red Feather also has a killer breakfast pizza. Pizza for breakfast: How could oatmeal top that?
Edited to add: Merritt's at 2 a.m. Also a contender.
