@chai2,
Well it doesn't compare to a well made Irish breakfast. Don't forget the white and black pudding!

@chai2,
This has been discussed before.. (seven pages worth of threads).

No. They have breakfast at 7 or 8 at night.

@tsarstepan,
What's white and black pudding (I'm almost afraid to ask)?

@chai2,
Can't be the same. When I objected to certain stuff as a little boy, they were always telling me how much little Chinese children would love to have my leftovers.

I have always felt sorry for Chinese children.

@tsarstepan,
I was afraid of that.
I admit to never having tried it. I haven't tasted squid ink either..

But, y'never know. I might like both of those, in moderation.

Having eaten literally hundreds of breakfasts in Ireland, and in many of the counties of Ireland, i feel confident in saying that you are very, very unlikely to be served anything resembling "blood pudding." Commonly, one was served a cold cereal (such as what Americans think of as cereal), fried eggs, rashers (a form of bacon, cut differently than what Americans are used to), sausages (usually lamb sausage), white and brown bread toast, soda bread, coffee or tea. This was almost invariably what one was served, from Limerick to Dublin, from Sligo to Waterford.

@Setanta,
What, no oatmeal? The most delicious oatmeal I've ever tasted I enjoyed every morning I was in Dublin.

@tsarstepan,
I have only been to Ireland twice, but enjoyed your breakfast there - just as I do in England or Scotland. I even try the black pudding. Not all the time, but when it is served and it is not always.
Full Irish breakfast
An Irish breakfast consisting of sausages, black and white pudding, bacon and fried eggs.
-----------
In Ireland, as elsewhere, the exact constituents of a full breakfast vary, depending on geographical area, personal taste and cultural affiliation. Traditionally, the most common ingredients are bacon rashers, sausages, fried eggs, white pudding, black pudding, toast, sauteed, sliced potato, and fried tomato. Baked beans and sauteed mushrooms are also sometimes included,

Well, many Chinese I know eat congee, particularly those of the elderly persuasion. I have yet to meet an American who eats that. Therefore, the answer would be No.

@saab,
Hmm. I wonder if the irish bake beans the same or differently than the Boston irish of my family. Something for me to google.


Yep, they do, more or less: http://www.littleshamrocks.com/Irish-Side-Dish-Recipes.html#HomemadeBakedBeans

I had breakfast in Donegal, Sligo, County Mayo, Galway, Limerick, Cork, Waterford, Wexford, Kilkenny, Glendalough, Dublin and Athlone (which is basically a clockwise circuit of the Republic), and not only did i never see or eat anything remotely resembling "black pudding," i was not offered any such thing. I don't deny that it exists; i do deny that it is "common." As for oatmeal, i only lived there one winter, when it might be commonly offered, but by the time winter rolled around, i had already settled with my landlady what i wanted for breakfast, so i suspect she simply did not offer it to me.

I found two menues with black pudding in Irland over internet.
Anyway black pudding is called blod pudding in Swedish - hardly have to translate it you will understand what it is.
It is served for lunch or dinner with cranberrysauce. I hated it as a child with cranberrysauce and I had it with sugar and cinnamon. Absolutely not a Swedish tradition.
Never eaten it as a grown up until I got to Scotland and it was on the breakfast buffe. Said something about I used to have it with sugar and cinnamon as a child and the waitress said "So did I" and came with cinnamon.

@Setanta,
I'd go with Set on this one.

From my last visits to Ireland (last year and this year) I've never seen black pudding on the menu of my Full Irish breakfast, which I ate everyday.
