Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, even though I generally don’t eat breakfast until midday (intermittent fasting). I make an exception when I fly, though, and quite enjoyed a hearty Denver scramble on a recent first class flight in United Airlines.
Denver Scramble – United Airlines First Class Breakfast
Flying is dangerous for me because my strict diet on the ground tends to go out the window of a plane. Maybe one day I just won’t care about airline meals any more, but I’ve now been flying regularly for 17 years and I cannot imagine changing now (though I’m learning to say no to bread, at least…).
A Denver-style scramble includes scrambled eggs with ham, onions, peppers, and cheese. A simple enough dish and it hit the spot. The portion was large and it was served with a side of fruit (blueberries, watermelon, honeydew, pineapple, orange) and choice of beverage. United does breakfast well.
Thanks to United’s meal pre-order system, I had reserved this dish in advance, which always go fast in the cabin.
In case you were wondering, the other choice was a Belgium waffle with bourbon banana fosters sauce and berries. That’s a delicious dish, but like eating dessert so I generally stay away from it and no longer ask if there are any “leftovers” after finishing my eggs.
Bottom line – this is a dependable choice, will fill you up, and even get you some protein. It’s not healthy, but it is airplane food after all.
