Bakes and Eggs-A Guyanese Breakfast

Bakes and Eggs-A Guyanese Breakfast

These fried breads are not greasy when properly cooked. Serve with scrambled eggs at breakfast or with Baigan choka, pumpkin (butternut squash) or dhal. My kids say their favorite breakfast is bake and eggs. Say that really fast and you can see how it confuses their friends who think they are being served bacon and eggs.
