At home with Bessie's Stampede Breakfast, just B.Y.O.E. - Bring Your Own Eggs!
Bessie has teamed up with a number of local businesses to bring you a classic Stampede Breakfast in the comfort of your own home.
With the Covid-19 pandemic, the Calgary Stampede 2020 was a bust and Stampede 2021 is looking very different. While many Calgarians have opted out of going to the Stampede grounds to stay healthy and avoid the crowds, this doesn't mean we have to miss out on one of our favourite traditions - Stampede Breakfasts. The smell of pancakes and sausages taking over the city *insert drool emoji here*.
This year, let's stay healthy and happy, avoiding the crowds and still enjoying Stampede Breakfast from the comfort of your own home (and pajamas)! Inside your B.Y.O.E. Stampede Breakfast box is bacon, sausages, Buttermilk Fine Waffles classic mix, Cosman & Webb's pure organic maple syrup, and Devil Head Coffee's Alberta Jam coffee. All you need to do is Bring Your Own Eggs!
We only have a small number of boxes available, so order your B.Y.O.E. Stampede Breakfast now!
What's In The B.Y.O.E Stampede Breakfast?
Irving's Farm Fresh
Our bacon and sausages come to us from Irving's Farm Fresh, a family-owned and operated pig farm in Round Hill, Alberta. Alan and Nicola moved their family from the UK to Canada in 2005. Once they moved to Alberta, they noticed that their favourite British pork products weren't available here. So in 2007, they began breeding their own Berkshire pigs! Because if you can't find your favourite food... just make it from scratch yourself right?! Their small herd of Berkshire pigs are raised naturally, without the use of antibiotics or added hormones. They live freely with full access to their outdoor environment and indoor shelters to protect them from natural elements. Their pigs feed on forages, locally grown grain, and a premix of canola/soya, and vitamin/mineral supplement - never fed any animal by-products. Irving's Farm strives to create a stress free environment for their beloved pigs. This includes humane treatment with the freedom to roam their outdoor environment, to be normal pigs and root in the dirt, as well as the enjoyment of human contact. This means that these pigs live a stress free life, resulting in the best meat quality.
Buttermilk Fine Waffles
If you're a brunch lover in Calgary, you may have heard of Buttermilk Fine Waffles when they served their fluffy, mouthwatering waffles on 17th Ave. They opened in 2015, serving up their family recipe of light and fluffy buttermilk waffles. It ranged from savory eggs benedict waffles to sweet waffles that allowed dessert for breakfast. While their restaurant is no longer open, they have perfected their family recipe so you can enjoy their delicious buttermilk waffles at home. This famous mix can now be found throughout Canada. Once you try these incredibly delicious, light and fluffy pancakes (or waffles) you'll be hooked!
Cosman & Webb
To bring you authentic Canadian maple syrup, we had to look outside Alberta. Which brings us to Cosman & Webb, a family-owned farm in southern Quebec filled with beautiful maple trees. The Cosman family has been tapping maple trees since 1986. Their farm is certified organic and committed to bringing you the purest maple syrup while keeping their production environmentally friendly and caring for the health of their forest. Their syrup is 100% pure maple syrup, organic, unblended and all from the same forest. This amber maple syrup has a smooth, buttery and velvety texture with flavours of caramel and vanilla. You'll also pick up notes of floral, honey and warm spice. Cosman & Webb's delectable maple syrup is all produced and packaged at their family farm in a beautiful Italian glass bottle with a resealable wooden cap. It tastes amazing and looks beautiful!
Devil's Head Coffee
Bessie's team is filled with climbers, so partnering with a local coffee roaster that also loves climbing and the outdoors was a no-brainer! Many of their inhouse blends are named after famous Alberta Rocky Mountain climbs. Devil's Head Coffee started with Chris and Tanis roasting their own coffee on a small popcorn popper - talk about resourceful! They quickly upgraded from the popcorn popper to a proper 1kg roaster in their basement... Like the Walter White of coffee. With the growing love from their family and neighbors, Devil's Head Coffee and has since graduated from their basement to their own Roasterie with a 5kg roaster! Devil's Head Coffee is committed to starting your mornings off with uncomplicated coffee with fresh identifiable flavours, so you can go about your Alberta adventures and elevate your day.
