Heading out of Nashville on Sunday morning, our last stop was for breakfast. After researching dozens of breakfast websites, there was only one place that stood out: Milk & Honey Nashville. One glance at the menu, and all other options were off the table.

Huevos Rancheros Recipe

I’m not sure when or where I first tried Huevos Rancheros. It certainly isn’t something I grew up eating, but today it’s one of my favorites. This dish is especially satisfying during the colder months–when appetites are extra large. And don’t restrict Huevos Rancheros to breakfast. It’s terrific for lunch or even supper.

Unlike French Hot Chocolate, which is typically made with cream or a combination of cream and milk, Parisian Hot Chocolate is made without cream. The milk is whole, of course, and the chocolate has to be really good.
