My family loves to fish, albeit only when the fish seem to be biting. I went trout fishing for the first time a year ago and it was amazing. The fight of the size of fish I caught was intense, but I would do it again in a minute. One of my favorite breakfast items when traveling or even just up in Northern Minnesota is trout and eggs. I don't often fish during the winter months, but really craved a trout and egg breakfast. I found to be one of the best canned trout I have ever tasted. Yes, I said canned trout. It was brought to my attention at a local grocery store demonstration tasting and I instantly bought a handful of cans. Recently, I was inspired to make my very own version of trout and eggs.
