Breakfast cook-off in South Portland

SOUTH PORTLAND (WGME) — Over 200 people came out to do some taste testing in South Portland Friday morning for the annual breakfast cook-off.

The breakfast competition featured restaurants from around Maine competing against each other for a good cause.

All proceeds went to Preble Street.

Entrees included chocolate and bacon stuffed waffles, creme brule French toast and blueberry pancake wrapped sausage.

This year’s winner was Vignola Cinque Terre with a smoked beef brisket hash.

Many chefs say they enjoy the event just as much as the tasters.

The breakfast kicks off restaurant week which starts this Sunday and runs until March 14th.
