National Junk Food Day Brunch by Chef Cecil G

So, I invited my fraternity brother Chef Cecil G to my home in an effort to pay homage to National Junk Food Day.  We decided to make this meal for friends and his lovely wife and beautiful daughter.  Please feel free to try these fun recipes any day of the year in remembrance of this wondrous holiday.
