What's the most unusual breakfast you've had?

Asked by Sunny2 (18758points) December 3rd, 2011

We’ve had a number of queries about breakfast lately. How about the most unusual? And I don’t mean leftover pizza or apple pie kind of thing, but an experience you haven’t had before.
For me, it would be fresh caught fried trout right out of the lake next to the island we were camping on. This is probably common as anything to a fisherman, but I’m a city gal. It was fantastic!

Spaghetti while camping.

Very, very fresh Rocky Mountain Oysters and duck eggs. All thumbs up.

@Sueanne_Tremendous I only had Rocky Mountain oysters once. I wasn’t impressed, but an interesting experience. Duck eggs just taste a bit riper than chicken eggs to me. What did you think?

Sueanne_Tremendous's avatar

Hmmm…riper? I don’t know if that’s how I’d explain that flavor. Fuller flavor? Anyway they were good. And the oysters were like 5 minutes old. Fresh off the bull. GQ BTW!

@Sueanne_Tremendous Poor bull. Did you watch the, uh, procedure?

Sueanne_Tremendous's avatar

Oh dear lord no! I don’t think the bull minded….he was out gallivanting shortly after.

An entire ripe tomato. Ate that sucker just like an apple! :)

I really don’t remember what the strangest thing I’ve eaten for breakfast was. But once while visiting my sister at her college I ate cereal out of a pyrex measuring cup with a measuring spoon.

Runny, stewed tomatoes served to me from a giant metal vat by a very stout, dour old lady with a big ladle in a dim dining hall—big time Oliver Twist style. I was 16 and staying at Chorleywood College for Girls with Little or no Sight somewhere outside London. My other option was Rice Krispies with warm milk. No offense to my Brit friends here but when I saw red lumps swimming in that vat, I thought I was being served cow hearts or something.

Scrambled egg with frankfurters, peas, sweetcorn & green beans. This breakfast was served up in a small suburban hotel in Prague.

Not really a food, but an experience. We rented a house and every morning the owners of the house would come over and cook us breakfast. The husband did the cooking and made us something different every day. It was different to say being in a hotel or a bed-and-breakfast situation because they were there in the house we were living in on our own. It felt a bit like having your own personal chef. If we wanted to we could get them to cook us dinner too. We didn’t do that. While it was lovely, we actually really like our own space and would be happy with toast for breakfast usually.

Fresh bass and an apple turnover.

I had breakfast in the South Park Hotel in Trivandrum a couple of times. They did a very nice bowl of porridge but everything else looked frighteningly exotic. I chose grilled chicken livers and the very pleasant and attentive staff made me a superb omelette. I have no idea what floated in those silver tureens but I was on holiday and didn’t want to take any chances.


Scrambled eggs topped with Russian caviar——all this on top of a bowl of ramen noodles.

Sunny2's avatar

@ MRSHINYSHOES Sounds like an excess of Ramen noodles.


@Sunny2 Well, the noodles are cheap and filling, and the Russian caviar pricey and only half an ounce, so yes, I had to have an excess of Ramen noodles, not the other way around, unfortunately. Lol.

Sunny2's avatar

@MRSHINYSHOES I’ve always wanted to go to a party where there was limitless caviar. Not likely. On the other hand I don’t care if I ever have truffles again. I don’t care for the musty taste.

Congee rice gruel soup, not a fan though.

Sunny2's avatar

@Neizvestnaya I learned to love Congee when I was in China. They put such interesting things in the soupy rice: peanuts; chicken; sausage; cilantro; dried fruit. It’s great comfort food.
