    Winter breakfast poached pears and myrtus berries with rice porridge.

    Equally as good with Oat porridge  :)

    Looks tasty. I havnt come across anything yet that i enjoy more then eggs benedict. Only when the cook or chef knows how to do a good hollandaise though. I hate going into a restaurant and ordering it and when i take the back of my fork across the sauce and taste it and i realise its from a package i get awfully dissapointed.... Yea,... nice traditional fresh eggs benny from a respectable place.

    Porridge, cooked the authentic Scot's way then served with salt ans a dash of milk. On a day when I'm feel like comfort food, a well-fired breakfast roll filled with Larne sausage and liberal amounts of HP sauce!

    Probably pho would be one I'd be happy to eat on most any day.

    Chicken fried steak with hash browns probably comes in at second.

    And third would be Eggs Benedict.

    Mood certainly enters into it though.

    I like more sleep for breakfast. Leave me along, get rid of all the stupid pita things that are gonna wake me up getting on my nerves. After that, I want good strong coffee and whatever is left-over from yesterday, if I liked what it was in the first place. I have no real correlation with time-of-day and what type of meal I should eat. I think I just enjoy good stuff at any given meal.

    I enjoy a good breakfast burrito: dice the white onion, dice the red and green bell peppers, Julienne the tomato, fresh jalapeno pepper seeded. Shred some pepper or Monterrey Jack after the veggies are mixed with my eggs. Then I'll chop up some sausage and bacon. If I'm feeling really good or lucky, that burrito gets turned into a quesadilla.

    My favorite is Eggs Sardou-

    toasted english muffin topped with baby spinach and artichoke hearts sauteed in a little butter

    topped with poached eggs and napped with hollandaise.

    Then fresh cracked pepper on top and a dash of Tabasco on each one.

    Delish

    Though hardly anyone offers it at brunch places.

    It's kind of a veggie version of Eggs Benedict- I never liked that one, but only because it's too hard to cut up and eat gracefully.

    The Canadian bacon is too dense for the soft eggs, in my view.

     Fresh baked bisquets, 2 or 3, split thank you very much. A small tab of butter on each piece topped with 2,, fresh, over easy (that is the way I like them) eggs. Now comes the good part... sausage gravy with big chunks of sausage. No wait, add 2 sausage patties then add the sausage gravy.  Lots please, soak it down.

      Now add a tall glass of local fresh squeezed orange juice, add a couple ice cubes to cool it off a bit.  Now I need only 2 cups...no, 2 mugs (no idea why anyone drinks coffee in a tiny cup) of locally grown, roasted and ground coffee.  Now that breakfast is complete it is time to retreat to the hammock and take a short nap..

    I just remembered a breakfast from a few years back.  This was when I was still doing Intermountain Vintage Racing out in Wendover, Utah.  Or Nevada, depending on which side of the line you are on.  Anyway sunday morning I got things at the race site under control and decided to sneak into one of the casinos to get some breakfast before it got busy.  One place had a breakfast buffet, the usual hard, dry eggs, really gooey oatmeal, bacon that has been under a heat lamp for a week or two, hash browns you could use to retread a tire, that sort of thing.

    But this place had a treasure - a pan full of fresh strawberry blintzes.  They were really tasty!  But what surprised me was that I was the only one eating them!  Other diners would glance at them, then move on to the more familiar breakfast buffet crap.  I tried my best, but I couldn't quite eat the whole pan full myself.  Maybe this coming weekend I'll make my sweetheart some blintzes.

    Fresh squeezed orange juice.  Three double shots of excellent espresso.  Platter of perfect smoked whitefish, barbecued cod, and lox, with sliced red onions, black olives, and capers.  Marinated herring with sour cream and onions.  Cole slaw and potato salad.  Poppy seed and "all seed" bagels.  Cream cheese. 

    Another double espresso with an egg-cream chaser.

    Pretty much anything bready and anything that i can't usually get here. 

    1. English muffins (Thomas' brand) - could eat them with butter and sometimes jam every day of my life for breakfast and never feel deprived.  With lots of american coffee with lots of milk in it.

    2. Buttermilk Pancakes with butter and blueberry sauce (this is what i make every sunday - easy blueberry sauce, boil sugar and water till soft ball stage and then shut gas and dump in frozen blueberries, a grating of nutmeg

    3. waffles will also do

    4. plain bagels toasted - one half with butter to dunk in the coffee, the other half maybe with cream cheese

    5. Cinnamon raisin rolls or bread

    6. good corn muffins or blueberry muffins

    then if anyone wants to throw in some american bacon and maybe some eggs fried on high heat so lacey underneath and then turned over for an instant to cook the mucous top surface and turn it white but leave the yolk runny to dip my cinnamon raisin toast into, i wouldn't mind that either.

    waking up slow, coffee in bed, really good artisanal bread toasted, topped with melted extra sharp cheddar and west indian hot sauce, or a quesadilla with salsa or leftover fajitas(cold)....really cold tomato juice with horseradish, or actually a bloody mary if i'm not working.....maybe one little nibble of chocolate before heading back to bed!    i absolutely adore cold leftovers for breakfast, roasted chicken and lasagne being my all time favorites, followed by pizza with anchovies and shrimp cocktail...good strong black coffee always.

    I'm not much of a big eater when it comes to breakfast - I'm a fan of a mixed bowl of fresh fruit, a few slices of cheese and a strong cup of coffee. At least during the week that is, come the weekend I love to go out for brunch (so not technically breakfast) but the sky is the limit... from the greasy spoon breakfast to a triple stack of yogurt pancakes with a fresh fruit compote ad usually I like to wash it all down with a chocolate milkshake... ya I know, I overindulge, but hey it's the weekend!
