Cowansville American Legion Served Up Breakfast to Hungry Hundreds

Tim Matthews of Kittanning pours perfect amount of pancake batter on hot griddle.

American Legion Post 325 in Cowansville had a full parking lot when it held another of its famous breakfast to hundreds of customers who came from near and far.

It was the place to be last Saturday morning. Neighbors sat across from each other to share the latest neighborhood news while politicians made their rounds hoping to secure votes for the Primary Election.

But it was the many families who paused from their busy life to enjoy a meal together that brought meaning to the event.

Jim Foster from Sherrett cooked 100 pounds of sausage for the Cowansville American Legion Breakfast.

According to Carol Hooks, 33 dozen of eggs were cooked any way you wanted them – sunny side up, upside down, scrambled, over hard, over soft, or just about any way you could think of.

It took one hundred pounds of country sausage to satisfy the many; and then, bulk sausage was available for sale to take home to recreate the famous meal.

Scott Hetrick from East Franklin Township drys dishes while Jeff Kaufman from Cowansville mixes batter for pancakes.

The sausage was also featured in the Legion’s infamous biscuits and gravy.

Pancakes were in abundance – both regular and buckwheat.

Add toast, coffee, and orange juice and it is a complete meal for just eight dollars.

The Legion will hold its next breakfast on February 16. Don’t forget your appetite.
