oh boy, that's a large question.

It really depends on the region.....which area of the Western World are you talking about?

Francis can cover Europe, I'll take the US.

OK with you Francis? :wink:

well.....

I'm eating wheat toast with jam right now, with calcium enhanced orange juice, lots of pulp....

sometimes I like oatmeal with a banana sliced in it...or a scrambled egg or two with sauteed mushrooms wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla

On weekends I love a big bowl of real yellow grits with cheese and sometimes tiny bits of breakfast sausage diced into it. yummmmmmm.....

And you......?

Kathyhingua, that's what I had this morning.

Plus a beer afterwards, but I don't think most Americans have beer with their breakfast.

But I'm a little different.

Set- Now that is breakfast for a huge person (or a smaller person, who is on vacation Laughing ).

I usually have an orange, a bowl of cold cereal with milk, and some juice for breakfast.

It must be Scrapple, fried crispy on the outside for about 2 mm into its crust. Topped with maple syrup. Serve this with 3 sunny -side up eggs, whole wheat buttered toast and a side of thinly sliced fried taters and onions. Accompanied by a FRESH SQUOZEN orange juice (Nunothat boxed ****) and a cup of house blend decaf. (Caffiene gives me heart skips).

KATHYYINGHUA - Welcome to A2K Very Happy


Breakfast is a meal eaten in the US upon awakening. Often, working people eat only a small breakfast, "on the run", such as a cup of coffee, and a muffin. On the weekends, the breakfast is usually larger in some homes.

Here is a good website about breakfast around the world:

Peameal bacon, aka back bacon, aka "Canadian" bacon (the 'Merican version of "Canadian" bacon bears absolutely no resemblance to back bacon) . . .

Great in a sammich, or just on the side of the plate at breakfast . . .

http://www.realcanadianbacon.com/images/whole_roast.jpg

Great as a roast . . .

This was apparently orignally pickled, and then rolled in ground yellow pea meal. Mostly, though, you'll bet it rolled in yellow corn meal these days.

An American company that wants to sell you "genuine Canadian Peameal Back Bacon."

Schneiders, a large Canadian meat-processing company, wants you to buy their authentic peameal back bacon, which they say is rolled in actual peameal.

Never heard of the stuff. However, There is no bacon, save some canned styles, that I cannot be persuaded to scarf.

I'm having oatmeal and coffee this morning. Alternating mornings, I have a bagel with cream cheese and coffee.

On Sunday, I cook eggs, sausage and toast, sometimes with hashbrowns. Or I cook french toast or pancakes.

You'd love peameal bacon. When it is sliced (usually about 1/8" inch slices), you can put it in a non-stick skillet and fry it up without adding butter or oil. As it is a pickled meat, the brine leaches out as it cooks. Only a thin layer of fat is left on the pork, and that melts in with the brine liquid. It cooks up quickly and it is delicious. The St. Lawrence Market in Toronto has a stand that sells peameal sammiches very inexpensively, and they make a breakfast all by themselves . . .

I never knew that Nutella was a popular breakfast food in Belgium. That's three points for the Belgians! Laughing
