Just go to a diner and ask for the maximum amount of grease, carbs, and cholesterol. This will probably be some kind of pancake/sausage sandwich, with a side of biscuits and gravy. You will die happy.

What the hell is the stuff in this thread. None of this is breakfast. You can't just eat whatever you want for breakfast.

breakfast is sacred.

Time is an illusion and I'll eat an omelet for dinner whenever I want, even if it's 8:30 am.

"Biscuit" literally means "baked twice". I posit that in this case neither the British nor the Americans make biscuits properly anymore, leaving the burden solely on the Italian biscotti.

Egg + meat + carb + condiment.

Chorizo, with eggs, potatoes, onion and seasonings on a warm tortilla with hot sauce and sour cream.

Or a ham, egg, and cheese sandwich on toast.


Or oatmeal with stuff.


Breakfast is the best meal.

Maybe it's just because I have a dicky tummy in the morning at the best of times, but the idea of spice early morning just makes me feel ill. Lots of nope. I just couldn't stomach it, literally. Night time, yeah, pile that spicy shit high, but not for breakfast.

I made an omelet tonight at 9 PM! Though I suck at making omelets so it was really just scrambled eggs with some vegetables in there.

Man, you come from a country where breakfast is just throwing everything from the pantry onto a plate. Sometimes, you have spices!

I just meant that, now that your country has been introduced to a wider range of seasonings and spices in the pantry, a full English breakfast can now include some more variety of flavor.

I mean, heck, a little chile powder and cumin isn't any worse than black pudding.

I drown all my meals, not just breakfast, in hot sauces.

A treat I rarely get to indulge in is link sausage with Heinz 57 sauce. The spicy savoriness of the sausage (provided you've got a good kind) combined with the sweet tanginess of the sauce is pure magic.

good breakfast: leftover Indian or pasta. saute in a skillet and crack an egg or two on top of it. magnificent.

also good breakfast: well-prepared chilaquiles

my normal weekday breakfast: baked garlic chicken thighs and spiced roasted cauliflower

I often default to cereal just because its quick, but when I'm in the mood my go to breakfast is a couple of eggs cooked up in a skillet wrapped in a crispy tortilla.

My girlfriend brought this up the other day and she thought I was crazy because I had never heard of it before. I'll have to try it sometime but it doesn't strike me as any more delicious than just an egg sandwich.

This thread has reminded me that it has been far too long since I've had overnight yeast waffles.

I will soon remedy that.

I have to admit, I spent 12 American Dollars on that bowl of frites, cheese curds, sausage gravy, and poached eggs. It was worth every penny.

Not here. Splurging for me is seeing how many Burger King chicken nuggets I can squeeze out of $10.

And yours was like, the single example of people spending a significant sum of money for breakfast.

Eggs in a basket is great because the egg also integrates itself into the bread, sort of like a savory version of french toast. It's also a pretty quick meal to make, which I appreciate as someone who's always rushing through his mornings after sleeping too late.

If I had more time, I'd make buttermilk pancakes from scratch every day and then blow up like a balloon from all the butter-fat and sugar. I might have those for dinner tonight, actually...mmm.

Our generation is the one that can't afford diamonds, country club memberships, nice vacations, or indeed much of anything beyond basic rent and a phone plan. ("Snake People Are Killing The _____ Industry" has gotten really popular as a headline lately.)

A decent meal is how we treat ourselves, as a cost-effective luxury with the added utility of not starving to death.
