Do people actually eat "breakfast food?" I've never really been a fan of breakfast food myself, and have often not eaten breakfast (i know i know.. the most important meal of the day boo! ) because of there being nothing to my liking. Why is it that we confine certain foods to certain times of the day? I like eating leftover pasta for breakfast, or maybe even a burrito.

I had a roommate who HAD to sit down and eat a proper breakfast before she went anywhere in the morning. And she always had to have cereal. She told me that at another place she lived, she used so much cupard space with cereal boxes, that she had to keep them under her bed or in her closet. whoo hoo!

One of my favourite breakfasts is toast with cold turkey; sometimes I have half a tortilla instead of toast. (Pause while I get some turkey out of the freezer for tomorrow ...) We usually have both cooked chicken and cooked turkey in the freezer, frozen in nice bitesized chunks, and fairly flat so it's easy to break off what you need.

I also like chicken for breakfast, but not quite as much. I usually use the cooked chicken for lunchish things like sloppy joes.

Yikes, now I'm starving, and it's bed time! la la la

But I do like some "breakfast foods" - we had pancakes this morning. Exclamation

I couldn't answer the survey because none of them is my choice. I almost always eat breakfast at home, but I rarely have cereal and I never have boo! eggs. Brrrrr. I do sometimes make a pizza-ish thing baked on toast; maybe that counts. la la la

There weren't enough choices on the poll for me to answer.

I take plain yogurt and fruit to work with me. I can't tolerate anything more than orange juice before about 8:30 and since I leave for work at 7:15, it's a little too early to eat anything. I take a 750 ml container of yogurt, which lasts for 2 days, and some apple sauce or some fresh fruit cut up. I have half the amount of fruit at 8:30 and the other half at coffee time at about 10:30. Many people at my office look longingly at my yogurt and fruit and mention how healthy I am. I don't tell them that on Sundays, I eat waffles with maple syrup. at last! la la la skip stomp

I eat a 2-egg omelette and a small glass of orange juice. This seems to be the best yet for carrying me through to lunch including quite a late lunch, even to 2 or later. I also like coffee.

I tried to create a new poll, but you can't seem to make a poll that allows a lot of choices, and you can't make one that allow you to check off "all that apply."

Into my hot pan goes a bit of olive oil, a diced onion, a chopped Italian sausage, an egg - this all goes onto a slice of bread and is topped with Louisiana Hot Sauce; hey, I am ready to go!

If cooked potatoes are ready, then it's time for a fritata.

I've been growing fat la la la on a regular diet of fried potatoes and two scrambled eggs. but since growing fat on said delights, I'm plotting to alter my morning meals to consist primarily of yoghurt and granola with fruit and/or nuts.
but I really enjoy the eggs and hashbrowns.

I couldn't answer the poll either, because pizza, bacon and eggs and cereal fall very neatly into my breakfast category. I also adore cold macaroni and cheese.

I'm a big fan of "breakfast food" and never skip this very important meal. The only "breakfast food" that I'm not keen on is cereal and milk. The cereal gets too mushy. I prefer cereal and yoghurt. That way the cereal stays crunchy.

It's debatable whether breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I find lunch to be pretty important as well. And dinner. (I was going to add "and evening snack" but changed my mind la la la )

Damn. That sounds like my kind of breakfast. When do we eat?

DR, you are welcome at the brekkie table any time - just be there at 6:45 sharp or your portion will be gone!

I need to click on more than one breakfast choice in the poll. From Monday to Friday I eat homemade museli and soya milk. On Saturday I eat bacon sandwiches on homemade bread. On Sunday I eat either poached or scrambled eggs on toast. All accompanied by a near-lethal concentration of coffee.
If I'm away from home in the UK I'll eat fried bacon and sausage and egg and black pudding and beans and mushrooms and hash browns and toast and fresh orange and coffee.

That "away-from-home" menu is only missing a mixed grill and kippers for an all out best breakfast of all time!!!
I miss the black pudding I had as a child in Sweden. It came in large round slices. The only kind I've found here is small, sausage sized ones.

If you have your cereal dry in one bowl and add it to another bowl about two spoonfuls at a time with some milk bravo!, it doesn't get mushy boo!.

I loathe mushy cereal; my definition of "mushy" is "less crisp than it comes out of the box". la la la

I still like cornflakes best. I had a fling with Crispix, but I don't really like them any more - have they changed, or have I Question

Mmmm, breakfast ... almost 12 hours away! at last!

I adore bacon sandwiches la la la for breakfast. They don't seem very popular in Canada or maybe in North America. Except for BLT's which are a whole different thing; also excellent, but they aren't in the same class as a plain bacon sandwich. stomp

At the caf at work, on the extremely rare situations when I get to work without having had breakfast and ask for some bread and some bacon, they keep trying to sneak the bread into the toaster.

This strangeness of needing to toast the bread for bacon sandwiches even occurs here in our kitchen. stomp Although... toasted bacon sandwiches are delicious as well.

The other thing that I find difficult to convey is the absolute need for toast to be ready at exactly the time it is going to be buttered and eaten. It's my feeling that there should be toasters placed on every restaurant table so people can toast their own bread and then butter their own toast. Ideally, toast is crispy and light on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. The butter should melt readily.

The first time I saw a whole plate of already toasted bread (already cold) placed on the breakfast table, I was horrified. It's even worse if the already toasted bread (cold) has been pre-buttered. Then it gets all flabby. boo!
