Not mentioned, another world was the small-town breakfast buffet we hit (coffee and juice extra) that included pig in these forms: ham slabs, sausage patty, sausage links, bacon, sausage gravy, fried pork chops, hash, and a mixture of chopped canned tomatoes, onions, and ham. [UPDATE: also another sausage, perhaps Italian and something like andouille?] No one had a heart attack while we were there, but I worried that a regular might….
