I rarely eat breakfast but my fave is always (for decades)
pork sausages with easy-over eggs, panfried potatoes with onions,
salt and pepper and rye toast if there's room.

I get cranky with total disappointment if the eggs are over or underdone!!!


It's funny. I just cooked that the other day! The only thing is, I cooked it for supper! :lol:

Creamed chip beef on toast, otherwise known as "$hit on a shingle."



I like it! The Stouffer's brand stuff in a micro wave pouch is almost as good as home made, and a lot less hassle. It is great on toast, but also pretty good on mashed, or baked, potatoes. Ad a dash of Texas Pete hot sauce, and you have a real treat.

FWIW, I think we had a thread about this several years ago.

:D Me too often ... when I crave "that breakfast" I'll have it any time of day or night!

I often cook up enough potatoes for leftovers so I can have them ready for panfrying
... rather than panfrying raw potatoes, though do that too. Leftovers means
less work and time for nuking or panfrying and it's nice to have them heatable in a few
minutes when I want/need NOW. :D

BTW ... I usually panfry with white or green onions ... and often I just have salt and pepper
for spices, but sometimes I add oil and some butter, and quite a bit of paprika (hungarian is fave) ... sometimes parsely. The paprika adds a bit of sauciness and a great taste. YUMMERS!

I've recently become somewhat addicted to scrambled eggs with smoked salmon mixed in. Although I am going to have to scratch my creamed beef over eggs and potatoes itch soon.

Serbian breakfast

Espresso
Cigarette
Rakija, preferably sljivovitza (substitute whiskey if rakija unavailable)
Repeat during the day


Major Wassisname, circa 1984/5: "A real tanker's breakfast is a good cigar, a good cup of coffee and a good puke".

Can't argue with that logic...

He should have tried the infamous Serbia-Irish breakfast…

Not entirely incompatible with his own…

You absolutely have to fry your hash browns in butter. The only other acceptable substitute is bacon grease.~ :lol: I also flavor mine with chopped onions, fresh cracked pepper, salt and paprika. Normally, on the weekend when I make baked potatoes, I usually make three or four too many, just so I can cook some fried potatoes one day during the coming week.

Damn, I miss that. Real creamed beef doesn't seem to have the same wonderful nastiness as the Army stuff.

Edit: You have a good recipe?

Favorite breakfast would have to be the following:

Strong black coffee
Fresh squeezed OJ or tomato juice on ice
1/4 inch thick ham slice
Truck stop gravy so thick you can stand a spoon up in it served over homemade biscuits
scrambled eggs in butter with cheese, onions, green peppers and mushrooms


Hi Ho, Hi Ho, its off to the job we go!

Followed by an hour nap!

Best breakfast, when I can arrange it, is left over seafood pizza from the night before (just ONE night before) served cold, with hot coffee. As an alternative, left over Chinese, also eaten cold.

Plus two ibuprophen tablets and a multi-b vitamin to get me through the day.

If I have to buy breakfast on the way to work, as not too many places sell cold pizza at that time of morning, it is bacon and egg sandwiches with extra cholesterol

The perfect breakfast, I have decided is definately Corned Beef Hash over hash browns, with a side of grits. THAT'S a breakfast that will get you up and going able to face whatever the day throws at you.

Heh, you guys wanna talk stereotypes --

Weekday: NYC (it's got to be from around here, although Montreal bagels are awesome too, just different) with veggie cream cheese and tomato slices, OJ, giant coffee, gulp them down while walking briskly to subway.

Weekends: If I'm waking up early, bacon/egg/cheese drowned in Sriracha on a roll from the nearest bodega -- the Hispanic-owned ones do it the best (no pork fear).

If I'm meeting friends, probably some yuppie omelette brunch action with tons of coffee and a couple bloody marys (salted rim please!)

Bagels... I never understood the appeal of bagels. (fighting words, dons flame suit hehehe)

:P

Gimme hot garlic fried rice with some of our heart-attack-inducing Lucban longganisa, a sunny side at the side, atsara or some tomato slices, and a small bowl filled with hot beef broth with bits of parsley. Now THAT is breakfast. Mmmmmmmm....

(then hours later, a pain on the neck, the left arm cramps, and the chest feels tight hahahahaha :lol: )
