While eating light is certainly an option (homemade granola, oatmeal gratin), Jackson 20 can go as hearty as you can handle.
Exhibit A: chicken-fried steak (bronzed flour bubbles up around the meat) flanked by hash browns, eggs and sausage gravy.
Exhibit B: bacon (peppery), eggs (flirty richness) and fried green tomatoes (provide pungency) layered on buttered brioche (fat-soaked gift wrapping).
