100 ATRO #81: Hot sauce in the morning

If you didn’t already know, ATRO stands for Awesome Things Rip-Off because I totally ripped off the idea from this guy.

For some reason, some people think this is weird.  “Hot sauce in the morning?!” they’ll proclaim, as though you’re swigging whiskey with your Fruit Loops.

Why not?

At my old company, my co-workers would give me and my friend YP a hard time for putting the firy condiment on our eggs and potatoes, respectively.  But why? While I probably couldn’t ingest some tobasco upon rolling out of bed, for that second breakfast – later in the morning, after a workout or a commute – it’s perfect.

That unbeatable combination of salt, vinegar, and of course hotness is just right for blander savory foods like eggs or potatoes.  Eggs and potatoes are breakfast foods, aren’t they?  You’d put salt and pepper on both, wouldn’t you?  You’d even put some ketchup.

Why not tabasco?

And it’ll definitely wake you up.
