What's for breakfast?

Posted on 11/13/2010 2:47:18 AM PST by JoeProBono

"I am in weekday breakfast rut! I need something I can either easily carry or eat/prep quickly. I swear I've had every combination of Publix/Other brand bagels + various cream cheese spreads....gone through tons of cereals, oatmeals, frozen foods. Did the hot pocket thing and/or jimmy dean breakfast d'lite frozen sandwich things for a while.

I'm not against precooking things either! I've hardboiled eggs the night before and peeled them, or cooked noodles or mashed potatoes and just warmed a small portion in the morning. But I'm tired of all of the above. What do you eat for breakfast?"

Beer and cornflakes.

Get the non-sweetened cornflakes. Open the beer the night before so it goes flat.

Pour on cornflakes and consume with black coffee.

emergen-c/tequila/sprite cocktail.

Much healthier than the family’s traditional milk and whiskey breakfast.

Cooked food is overrated, buy high quality liquid multi-vitamin, then eat only trail mix (no sugar, no chocolate), down it with coffee.

If you don’t fast, you don’t have to break it.

We love porridge with real maple syrup and cream. When the oats are soaked over night, it cooks in very little time.

1 cup regular oats
1 cup warm water mixed with 2 Tbls yogurt or kefir
Soak at room temp for at least 7 hours

In the morning boil 1 cup water with 1/2 tsp sea salt. Add oats and cook for a few minutes. Top with the syrup and lots of cream.

Quick cooking oats topped with milk and sugar don't even come close to this.

Left overs can be reheated for another breakfast or used to make fried mush, which tastes much better than it sounds :).

Nope, perfect porridge is a handful of whole oats (not the quick kind) a handful of dried cranberries, enough water to cover and then nuke one minute. Serve with butter and maple syrup. YUM

Also for a change, fruit smoothie or chorizo and eggs wrapped in a flour tortilla.

I love the great English breakfast fry up! Pots of tea or coffee, hot toast and fresh, bright orange eggs and that great staple: black pudding. The only thing I don’t care for are the Heinz baked beans. Too tomatoey.

Lots of great idea & pix!

I have been on Fit for Life for about 15 years. Sometimes slip off it now & then. Essentially a different type of diet designed for maximum energy & Protecting the immune system.

The side effect is normally weight loss. When I started it there was just a book & some cassette tapes available. Now it is big business, which I would avoid. Just read the book(library or buy paperback) & see if it might be something worthwhile for you at this age/stage of your life

Breakfast is NOT a big meal as it is in many diets. If you have an interest you can check on line for info

You know what is really kinda’ amazing?

Most breakfast places have no clue how to make a decent omelet.

We take eighteen ounces of sizzling ground beef, and soak it in rich, creamery butter, then we top it off with bacon, ham, and a fried egg. We call it “The Good Morning Burger”.

I borrow from the English—and grill up a tomato to go with my eggs over easy.

This is how you should cook an omelet.

I happen to be quite an expert on omelet making.

I guess when you like something you learn how to do it well.

Great way to start the day.

I’m going French today: pain perdu. Left-over challah bread, dipped in egg and milk and fried in the pan. Only Americanism: New York State maple syrup. None of that Canadian stuff for our family!

I refuse to buy Heinz products. Bush’s Original Recipe are my favorite baked beans ... delicious for breakfast out of a saucepan left on the stove all night by the dishwasher who “didn’t see it, Mom.”
