This is by far Brennan's Restaurant of New Orleans most complex dish to create. The reason being is that there are so many separate things in this dish that have to be kept warm. I cooked this for breakfast at the hunting camp one time. We had been playing cards all night, so I started cooking at about 2 AM. Breakfast was ready at 4:45 AM. Needless to say, I did not go hunting that morning!
