After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the Escalon Sunrise Rotary Club’s popular Super Bowl Breakfast returned this past weekend.

Much to the delight of the more than 200 attendees on Sunday morning, Feb.12, the event served up hot, freshly made omelets to order and also featured biscuits and gravy, pastries and beverages.

There were also a number of theme baskets and gift certificates that were part of the opportunity drawings, with tickets for those on sale at the event.

“We felt we had a real good showing after two years off,” noted Club co-President Dave Mantooth. “Lots of returnees plus many new attendees.”

The set up was the same as in past years; those attending went through the line to choose the fillings for their omelets, a number of different vegetables and ham offered, then had the omelet cooked up as they watched. Cheese was added in on request.

Several volunteers were wielding the frying pans to keep the line moving and there were several ‘rushes’ during the morning, with the event running from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.

That gave diners a chance to enjoy a good breakfast, support the ongoing projects and community service work of the Rotarians, and still get home in plenty of time to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday afternoon.
