You might be wondering what Honky Potatoes are. Unless you 1/ grew up in Emporium, PA, or 2/ have stopped at the Buttonwood for breakfast on your way through Emporium, PA, you probably have no idea.
The Buttonwood is this little hometown breakfast joint where the food is cheap and will cure any hangover. Any time I go back to Empo for the weekend (which is usually only once a year, twice if I’m lucky), I order Honky Potatoes. It’s listed on the menu as “A mix of eggs, potatoes, ham, peppers, and onions.” It’s your standard scramble/garbage plate.
