What's your favourite breakfast food or recipe

Post: # 178772Post homegrown »

I am wondering what people around the world like for breakfast

On a financially challenged day it's Weetbix or porridge but if I have been a good boy or solld lots of plants it's

pancakes buttered with panfried bananas and syrup and if really lucky add some bacon

all though on occasions a cooked breaky goes down nice
tomato
sausage
bacon
egg
hash browns
black pudding
and toast



oh bother now I'm hungry and its nearly midnight :lol:

I very rarely have a cooked breakfast at home. I might have one at a greasy spoon now and again.

Our favourite breaky is on Sundays when we have Boiled eggs and toasty soldiers, mine with Marmite on the toast and Jules with just butter.

Fantastic. I look forward to it all week.

I don't eat breakfast ever but I love breakfast food which I do for dinner - a fry up, boiled eggs and soldiers or when my OH is away or I manage to feed him on something else, a couple of bowls of really thick porridge with golden syrup all over. I also eat muesli/allbran with chopped banana and extra dried fruit with yoghurt for pudding. :iconbiggrin:

American pancakes with maple syrup are wonderful too, though that's not something I cook more than about once every 20 years!

My fave quick and filling brekky is:
Ripe banana
Oatmeal
Milk
Honey
Put it in the blender and give it a whiz - you'll be full 'til lunch time!

My own muesli recipe - very quick, simple and delicious

4 parts porridge oats
2 parts dried fruit - I usually use sultanas
1 part slivered almonds

Oh and weekend breakfasts are usually a bacon butty with HP, mmmmm :lol:

sunday brunch full british breakfast:- perm any amount from the list ;) - egg; bacon; sausage; black pudding; potato cakes; oat pancakes; tomato; mushroom; fried potatoes; bubble and squeak; beans

treat days -> it hasn't got a name -
slightly stale bread buttered, mash on a banana, make sandwich(es), beat an egg in a wide enough dish to fit the sandwich, soak sandwich in egg turning occasionally til it's all gone into the bread, fry in oil or butter turning when the bottom has gone golden on a mediumIsh heat.
sprinkle on cinnamon and drizzle honey or sugar <slurp smilie>

but it's more likely to be porage :roll:

When 'himself' is off work, it's a cooked 'something'.... a full on fry-up, or egg on toast, whatever....

When it's just me by myself at the moment, it's sitting with a box of cornflakes on my lap, watching sky news, or Ireland Am.... and then again for lunch... and tea... and in between times too! :shock:
I'm now getting thru 2 kilos of cornflakes a week... help!
The more people I meet, the more I like my garden :wink:

Coffee and a fag, probably why I'm not into breakfast.

On the rare occasions that I do eat bf, it MAKES me hungry :scratch: and I then nibble all morning. Normally I don't think of food before midday. :dontknow:

I do like a French breakfast for brunch which we do occasionally when visitors are here - croissants and butter and home made jam with milky coffee. OH complains about the sugar overload though I don't know what that means. :lol:

Nothing can beat a boiled egg, cooked so its just hit hard, on the crusty white bread strait from the oven with a bit of butter and some flakes of sea salt....

...But I can very very rarely be arsed baking bread first thing, it is never soft and crusty and white but usually rye and dwarf bread-like in consistancy, and I usually over or under do the egg :roll:

So a much easier just as satisfying breakfast: crumpets with peanut butter and a big mug of hot apple juice :iconbiggrin:
