What is your favourite breakfast

At home I just have bran flakes and raisins. I really like croissants, brioche, pain aux raisin or crumpets all with butter. Or wholemeal toast and peanut butter. I only have these on rare occasions. I can never face a cooked breakfast of any sort first thing in the morning.

What is your favourite breakfast?

I must say I sometimes think that breakfast is my favourite meal. There are so many different types that I enjoy.

Full English breakfast is right up there on the list, preferably including a lovely grilled lamb's kidney, and followed by crunchy toast with lashings of butter and marmalade.

But I also love lots of international style breakfasts: from France, the lovely breakfast of croissants with a bowl of cafe au lait - preferably enjoyed on a patio on the left bank in Paris, or in New Orleans!

From Greece, I adore fresh thick yoghurt, drizzled with fresh honey and accompanied by berries and a cup of strong Greek coffee.

From Italy, I will happily breakfast on a plate of prosciutto and melon or other fresh juicy fruits, followed by a steaming expresso or cappucine.

And from the UK, one of my fave dishes: smoked salmon and scrambled egg, along with a glass of champers or bucks fizz.

So many wonderful choices!

Oooh...I love bread and dripping, Sam! But that's for Sunday supper. Now that's another topic full of potential...my other Sunday supper faves include roe on toast, cheese on toast, and marmite on toast.

Fave Breakfasts

I agree with Jampling - so many great choices!

Pancakes with bacon and maple syrup...yum

Bacon, sausage, mushrooms and really well cooked tomatoes (can't claim full English as don't like eggs)

Toasted bagel with smoked salmon and cream cheese

But probably, if I was really pushed, I would go for Greek yoghurt with a fresh rhubarb compote or banana, honey and flaked almonds, followed by a really good pain au raison, accompanied by really good fresh OJ and a large mug of PG tea!

Where do you buy the roe Jamps?, can't find it in stores around here, most of the roe from Canada is sold to Japan.
Love the full English or eggs Benedict.
There is a restaurant chain in the US called "Perkins" and on the breakfast menu is what they call "Fabulous Foursome" or something to that effect, it consists of four eggs, four pieces of bacon, four sausages, four huge pancakes with syrup, homefries, sliced tomato and four slices of toast with jam and marmalade all served up with a bottomless cup of coffee, you don't need to eat lunch after that lot.

Breakfast


"2 fried duck eggs
3 rashers of dry cure smoked Wiltshire bacon
1 slice black pudding
1 slice white pudding
Grilled tomatoes
Fried mushrooms
Lots of white pepper, and Colman's English Mustard"


That's bordering on pure glutteny, lol but oh so mouth watering. Love my hog's (white) pudding and send for it from Scotland. Erm, ya forgot the fried bread!

Breakfast

I always have a slice of my homemade bread toasted with slices of butter on (!) and a smearing of 3-fruit marmalade.

If I'm out, I like smoked salmon with scrambled egg and toast.

Breakfast

Can't have fried bread because I eat a low carb diet :) However, the puddings do have some carbs (about 5g per slice), but am now in pre-maintenance, having lost around 5 stone, so the above is my daily breakfast at the moment - well, brunch really, cos after that little lot I only have one other meal in the day. I'm trying to cut back on the bacon, 'cos it's salty (not in the slightest bit worried about fat, fat is good!) so am thinking of substituting it with a small piece of steak, or a home made burger. Ah, how I suffer!

Fave Breakfas - Darkginger

Is this like the South Beach diet Darkginger ?
You have done fabulously, Well Done You xx

Breakfast - thanks Yummy :)

It's more like Atkins than South Beach (I don't eat much fruit, and never worry about fat), but it's pretty easy to stick to. I'm delighted with how well its worked, and have no plans to change back to a more 'normal' way of eating.

I'm even more delighted to report that it's now 6 weeks since I stopped smoking (with the use of e-cigs), and haven't gained any weight from that either, which I think is a blinkin' miracle. Still addicted to nicotine, of course, but now I'm enjoying it without the additional 4000+ chemicals in a cigarette. My tastebuds are coming back to life too, my morning cough has gone, and I'm full of energy.

Things have changed so much since last August when I embarked on all this - I feel like a new woman :D

You're right John, it is hard to find roe around here. There is one place that sometimes has it though, if ever you're in Toronto: Diana's Seafoods on Lawrence just East of Warden. It's a fabulous fish market that sells to most of the restaurants in town, but it's retail trade has also grown massively in recent times.

If perchance you ever try it, don't miss a quick stop at their new Seafood bar (same location). You will find some of the best oysters going, along with clams etc etc and some good fish entrees.

Breakfast

I remember with great fondness the old British Rail First Class silver service restaurant cars....especially the breakfasts. Last time I tried to get one was on a London to Norfolk train circa 1999, sitting in the 'Restaurant Car' First Class salivating like one of Pavlov's dogs when along came a trolley with something in a cardboard box and a plastic knife and fork :(( Presumably there is 'no demand' yet there is no shortage of fine eateries around. Maybe folk who eat in fine restaurants don't take the train?
