Typically, western breakfasts consist of eggs, bread--usually toasted and served with butter--and different cuts of pork, for example, bacon or pork sausage. A cereal is also common, served with milk, either oat meal consisting of cooked rolled oats or other grain or a commercially processed, boxed cereal, such as corn flakes. Orange juice and coffee are most often taken with breakfast. For variation, pancakes or waffles are served. Sugar-coated processed breakfast cereals are very popular with children.

Oddly enough, Americans insist on a great variety of food for the dinner meal, actually complaining about the same dinner meal two days in a row, but we insist on eating the same basic breakfast virtually every day of our lives.

Well, one great difference is the time both are served. Don't try to serve somebody in the west a breakfast at eastern times... or vice versa!

A common breakfast served here in the Southwest would be slow roasted rack of squirrel shredded and served in a corn tortilla wrap with mayo and mustard, or Capt'n Crunch with crunch berries (republicans usually have cheerios)

Of course, chenxi, we could better spot the differences if you would tell us about breakfast in China.

Rolling Eyes First,I want to thank you all.
Well,I think Roger is right.I shoud tell you something about Chinese breakfast,then you may show me the differences much easier.
In different parts of China,we have different kinds of breakfast.Usually,in the north of China, we usually have "oil stick"--in Chinese we call it "Youtiao",small dumplings,popped sesame ,steam bread,oily pancakes ,
roasted pancakes,Crispy Skin ,congee,soybean milk,porridge,eggs,etc. :wink:
