When Sterling K. Brown isn’t making us weepy on NBC’s This Is Us—or keeping us guessing as an accused criminal in the drama Marshall—you’ll probably find him hanging with his wife and two kids.
So what does he want to make today? “I like those Hungry Jack breakfasts, with the pancakes and eggs and meat!" he told us. "I think it reminds me of weekends with the family, Sunday brunch after church. It was good times.”
The Challenge: Sausage Flapjack Stacks
He's getting an assist in the kitchen from his six-year-old son, Andrew. “He was very excited about being able to use a knife to cut the apples, as we normally don’t let him do that," Sterling said. "But don’t worry, parents… it was plastic!”
So how did it go? “We enjoy breakfast for dinner, so this was a great continuation of our Friday night tradition," he said. "Even my littlest son, Amaré [age 2], helped by pouring flour on the floor. Andrew liked the pancakes, but next time, I would hold the gravy. The sweet-and savory thing was lost on him. But thanks to Rachael, we had a really fun evening as a family.”
