View Full Version : Breakfast Food

Ok, I just finished my breakfast and I realized how much I love breakfast. What's your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?

Bacon and Toast ftw! Bacon has to be nice and crisp and the toast just browned and slathered in butter. To top it off, a giant glass of Tropicana Orange Juice. *drools*

I like either a full English breakfast or Continental breakfast, both are great.

07-30-2007, 07:57 AM
Either an Ulster fry, or the very simple and basic, yet unbelievable toast and tea.

07-30-2007, 07:58 AM
It used to be orange juice until I've became an addict and switched it to coffee. Now it is orange juice again because of the fucking hot weather.

And although it sounds weird it's always a great pleasure to have tomato soup with hot sweet black tea on cold mornings.

What is this "breakfast" you speak of? Your alien language confuses me.

PS. I'm having waffles right now. Waffles are awesome.

07-30-2007, 08:12 AM
Bagel and spray-can cream cheese. Coffee.

I generally don't eat breakfast food often because I usually don't feel hungry in the morning and if I do eat, it feels like I'm just forcing myself. Sometimes when I'm feeling peckish later in the afternoon, I do enjoy eating a meal of huevos ranchers (fried eggs with tomato and onion), fried plantains, fried beans, and tortillas. Also, waffles make a good midnight snack.

the very simple and basic, yet unbelievable toast and tea.

One of my friends used to have that EVERY morning for about 2 years. It really is an unbelievable combo.

07-30-2007, 08:23 AM
biscuits & gravy is my favorite, though i rarely have it. normally i don't eat breakfast.

oh, and simpsons movie donuts are amazing.

07-30-2007, 08:26 AM
I generally don't eat breakfast but I love bacon and I like french toast, regular toast and sausage. Waffles are alright too but I've never been a fan of pancakes.

07-30-2007, 08:56 AM
I support the bacon and french toast bandwagon. Add some fried eggs over medium, Tabasco sauce, fresh fruit (red grapes, pineapple, cantaloupe, and watermelon), and orange juice, and we've got ourselves a perfect breakfast.

Alternatively, you could have chilaquiles. Especially after a night of heavy drinking. Served with a Mexican or Nicaraguan beer and a lime.

on weekdays i'll usually have a poached egg on an english mufffin... or graham crackers with berries/vanilla yogurt. but on the weekends it's a feast. so:

egg tacos (egg, fried potato chunks, cheese, salsa in a tortilla)
migas (egg, crushed tortilla chips, peppers, tomatoes, onion, cheese
dutch baby pancake orrr david eyre pancake *dies*
blueberry pancakes
asiago cheese and scallions egg scramble
or bagel with cream cheese, smoked salmon, lemon, capers and onions

i'm a glutton. yes.

and of course black tea + orange juice. in huge amounts.

07-30-2007, 09:46 AM
I generally don't eat breakfast because it makes me sick to eat that early. I have no clue why.

But, I do enjoy pancakes. I have them for lunch quite often.

07-30-2007, 09:55 AM
Bacon/sausage/hash brown/mushroom/beans/fried egg sandwich on thick crusty farmhouse white bread and either brown sauce or tomatoes. Has to be eaten quick though, before the bread dissolves.

Alternatively, thinly sliced mature cheddar on burnt toast with a 3-teaspoon strong black coffee (for a proper kick-start to the day).

Although, many times I've woken up to the wonderous left-over-kebab/curry breakfast. Nothing finer when you're hungover.

07-30-2007, 12:51 PM
Does anyone else believe that OJ should be deemed the ultimate breakfast drink.
(with few exceptions)

07-30-2007, 01:05 PM
I never thought I'd see the day. Finally, orange juice is on topic.

07-30-2007, 01:07 PM
It finally has a topic where it can be discussed. Let me feel this moment! *relaxes*

07-30-2007, 01:11 PM
Although, many times I've woken up to the wonderous left-over-kebab/curry breakfast. Nothing finer when you're hungover.

Leftover pizza is a fucking lifesaver when you can't be arsed to cook anything/are still too drunk to drive to a cafe/burger-van.

I generally have 3 slices of piping hot toast with butter and a glass of fresh orange if at work, or cup of tea if at home.

07-30-2007, 01:27 PM
Dammit, now I want to make myself breakfast food tonight. Does anyone have a good, not super elaborate recipe for French Toast? I've never made it before.

07-30-2007, 01:34 PM
I'm not sure but what you need to do is mix an egg with 1/4 glass of milk, put the sliced bread in it, wait a couple of seconds and grill it. Some fry it with butter, I've never tried it but if you enjoy unhealthy stuff give it a try. Serve with sugar and cinnamon while it's still hot. That's all.

07-30-2007, 01:36 PM
the french toast recipe i have saved...

2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
6 slices challah bread
1 tbsp. (or more) butter

Beat eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon in a shallow bowl or small baking pan. Dip bread into egg mixture and coat both sides. Melt butter in skillet over medium heat. Add bread in batches and cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.

serve with syrup yadda yadda yadda.

07-30-2007, 01:40 PM
Awesome. Thank you. I've been wondering this for a while, but what is so special about challah bread? Is it just that it's thicker than regular bread? Last time I got french toast at a restaurant, the menu said it was made with that and it really didn't seem that different than normal.

07-30-2007, 01:40 PM
Yours is better :( . I've never tried it with vanilla but it sounds so much better.

By the way, has anyone tried it with creme fraiche. One of my friend says it's awesome but I'm afraid of trying new things.

Buscuits and gravy or pancakes. I rule at making pancakes.

07-30-2007, 01:49 PM
i think challah is made with eggs and butter, so it's a bit richer and more pastry like.

as for creme fraiche... hm. i dunno. it's a little sour-ish, so... well. who knows. i just associate it with salty food for some reason.

07-30-2007, 02:31 PM
..would have to be biscuits and gravy, maybe some scrambled eggs too?

07-30-2007, 02:40 PM
I never thought I'd see the day. Finally, orange juice is on topic.

i'm pretty sure we've had a thread just about orange juice before.

07-30-2007, 03:21 PM
For some reason, I HATE people that don't prefer wheat toast. It's one of the few times in life where the healthy choice is the tastier choice.

07-30-2007, 05:30 PM
Waffles and syrup, bagels and cream cheese, english muffin and butter, toast and jelly.

All those. ;);)

07-30-2007, 09:58 PM
Man, I used to love eggs for breakfast...then one day I thought about what eggs really were...I mean, I knew before, but then I really thought about it. It's gross.

07-30-2007, 10:58 PM

Eggs, eggs, eggs, yum.

Scrambled with mushrooms, onions, and cheese.

Sunny side up with salt and pepper.

Omelette with tomatoes, ham, onion, cheese, peppers...

In a sandwich. Toasted bread, english muffin, or bagel. Slices of tomato. Fried bacon or ham. Sliced cheddar cheese or processed cheese. Butter. Mayo. Salt and pepper. I can make this in about 3 minutes. The ultimate breakfast.

Some form of bread (bagel, toast, english muffin) always on the side. Bacon or home fries for indulgent weekend breakfasts.

Orange juice. Coffee if necessary. The occasional other fruit juice or V8. Sometimes fresh fruit. Grapefruit is nice. Or oranges.


Toast. Whole wheat. With peanut butter and banana. Butter and jam. Cheez whiz.

A bagel. With cream cheese. Cream cheese and smoked salmon. Butter if it's the cinnamon and raisin kind or maybe a cheese flavour.






I loooooove breakfast.

Either an Ulster fry,

This is it, protestant host family for the win!

07-31-2007, 06:37 AM
Holy shit. I never knew what an Ulster Fry was until now and it looks fucking great. Heart Attack on a plate? I want one! :(

07-31-2007, 07:21 AM
French toast and bacon = very yay.

07-31-2007, 08:05 AM
I am making french toast in about an hour and I might try your recipe Sunny. But, I just ran low on eggs and only have one left. Just cut the recipe in half for one egg?

07-31-2007, 08:20 AM
yah, that'd probably work. i'd still add the same amount of cinnamon, but i'm obsessed with cinnamon, so don't mind me. ;p

07-31-2007, 12:23 PM
Depends what i'm in the mood for.
