Just don’t forget the coffee.

Allie's avatar

Haha. How you holding up, lefteh?

Waffles! Definitely waffles.. mmm, with strawberries!

poofandmook's avatar

Omelettes, grits, bacon, french toast, biscuits with homemade sausage gravy (I have a FABULOUS simple recipe if you want it)... I’m a big breakfast person hehe

robhaya's avatar

Brioche French Toast! It’s to die for. Belgium Waffles are also excellent too.

ideabrian's avatar

one slice of dry toast with peanut or almond butter
one cup of coffee black or with soy milk (then eat again in 2 – 3 hours)

poofandmook's avatar

Thanks for your input, lefteh. I’ll be sure to file it away appropriately so I can more easily refer to it in the future.

ideabrian's avatar

@poofandmook – please send eVite for breakfast – sounds delicious

simone54's avatar

Short stack of blueberry waffles, snauages, side of homefries.

poofandmook's avatar

aren’t snausages the dog treat? LOL

Kay's avatar

Challah french toast with fresh raspberries and blueberries and Vermont maple syrup!

poofandmook's avatar

@Kevbo: Did someone already chew that? ;)

scamp's avatar

Looks like that colon blast cereal the advertised as a spoof on SNL. ha ha!!

kevbo's avatar

Oh, pook. I hope you get to experience the nirvana of New Mexico chiles someday. (Not the Old El Paso in the can, by the way.)

@scamp, I don’t know about colon blast, but if it’s done right there’s a third burn involved.

babiturtle36's avatar

French toast, Biscuts, and croissants

poofandmook's avatar

actually I have family in New Mexico. But I don’t like spicy food at all… I actually can’t tolerate it… I have panic attacks. LOL. Also, my cousin told me about the bugs that you get down there and um, I’m going to stay in New Jersey ;)

kevbo's avatar

Bugs? What bugs? Where, exactly?

poofandmook's avatar

we were talking about centipedes, and she said there are centipedes down there that are 6 inches long and sometimes they hide in slippers. **shudder** And I’m actually not sure which part of NM.

scamp's avatar

Well, if you get the third burn, you have an idea what colon blast is. Same idea.

Sueanne_Tremendous's avatar

I love tortillas for scrambled eggs. I lke plenty of salsa in the morning, too!

gailcalled's avatar

Good bagels (toast en masse under broiler), cream cheese and quality lox for the lazy cook. All the fresh fruit available now.

redsgirl4eva's avatar

Potato Pancakes with a lot of butter and maple syrup.

kevbo's avatar

@pook, Ahhh. Must be more a southern NM thing. I only see them once in a blue moon.

El_Cadejo's avatar

I rarely have it, but nothing beats a nice bagel with lox and cream cheese. mmmmmmmmm

scamp's avatar

To answer the original question, my favorite is apple sausage pie. It’s a secret family recipie, and everyone who has tried it loves it.
@uberbatman do they have bagels 4U where you are? I love them!! Especially with the cranberry walnut cream cheese.

poofandmook's avatar

@Kev: I have entomophobia!!! What are you doing?! I should really pay more attention to the links I open. lol

Carla's avatar

My favorite breakfast is Spinach, Mushroom and Swiss cheese omelet, with a side of sausage patties, home fries and sour dough toast with butter and cherry jam.

What do I eat most every morning Raisin Bran or Grape Nuts Trail Mix cereal with 1% milk. How depressing.

marinelife's avatar

For a brunch, I like to make a breakfast casserole. I mix up a dozen eggs with 1/2 c.heavy cream. Then I season with salt, pepper, and snipped fresh chives. I take a log of goat cheese and break it up into pieces. Butter a 13×9 x 2 pan, sprinkle it with the crumbled goat cheese and chives, and pour in the egg mixture. Note: If you will have no vegetarian guests, you can add cubed ham or crumbled, browned sausage or bacon.

Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for about 30 min. (When eggs are just set—test the middle—it is done.)

I serve this with a gorgeous fruit platter. Pick the nicest fruits in season, choosing a variety of colors. Add some special exotic fruits in the center. I like bunches of finger bananas and champagne grapes (both of which are available at most upscale grocery stores).

Add homemade muffins, biscuits, or warm bagels.

Have a wonderful brunch.

whatthefluther's avatar

@Carla nearly nailed my favorite with the Spinach, Mushroom and Swiss omelet, with home fries and sourdough toast. I’ll substitute bacon for the sausage and orange marmalade for the cherry jam. Gee thanks Carla…now I’m really hungry!

tinyfaery's avatar

Love Bagels & Lox with capers.

Lingonberry crepes.


Soy, vanilla latte

La_chica_gomela's avatar

I was going to say something about quiches at brunches, being the easy and elegant version of scrambled eggs, and how you can put almost anything in them, and they take like 5 minutes

but when i saw kay’s answer of challah french toast i got lost in daydreams in daydreams of warm thick eggy strawberryy goodness…oh my….yummy

nina's avatar

Bagels, cream cheese and lox, with a good cup of coffee. UMMMH, you are getting me hungry

cooksalot's avatar

Don’t forget the bacon!

Randy's avatar

1) Bacon!!!
2) A bagel
3) Hash browns

poofandmook's avatar

Corned beef hash fried with bacon and eggs

cooksalot's avatar

oh yum corned beef hash. How about an omelet bar.

Kazzy's avatar

Bagels, fresh out of the oven.

ladytmerie's avatar

I love breakfast enchilada casserole. Corn tortillas cut into bite size pieces sauteed in butter or oil, then add enough red or green enchilada sauce to moisten. Then add eggs and either crumbled sausage or carne asada (pre-cooked) and scramble to just done. Bake this at 350 with shredded cheese on top till cheese melts and you hear it sizzling, about 15 minutes (don’t overcook). I like to top it with fresh diced onions and cilantro. Yum. My next fav is Chile Relleno Casserole!!

cooksalot's avatar

oh that casserole sounds really good. Man am I getting hungry.

marinelife's avatar

@ladytmerie That sounds delicious, and I love chile rellenos! Is you recipe for that casserole easy?

sdeutsch's avatar

oooh, Tiny – I adore lingonberry crepes! I’ve never made them at home, but when I visit my sister, I always make her take me to their local pancake house to get some…

When I’m doing the cooking, eggs benedict is one of my favorites – poached eggs on english muffins, topped with bacon, avocado and rich, creamy hollandaise sauce – yum!

Tantigirl's avatar

My favourite breakfast would have to be crumpets with butter and vegemite, and then a cuppa tea, preferably Earl Grey.

sdeutsch's avatar

Oooh, I forgot about the tea – can’t have breakfast without a cuppa… Peppermint is my usual favorite, but every now and then a nice white rose tea is perfect!

Tantigirl's avatar

Chai goes down very well too.

sdeutsch's avatar

Chai is more of an afternoon thing for me – too many spices for early in the morning, but excellent for a mid-afternoon tea break!

charliecompany34's avatar

they call it the “old timers” breakfast: scrambled eggs, sausage and hash browns.

snowboard06's avatar

Cookie Crisp!!

XrayGirl's avatar

egg frittata with bacon, bell pepper, onion and cheese,

fresh chopped fruit

bagels with lox and cream cheese

cinnamon sour cream coffee cake.

Starburst's avatar

bacon, eggs and coffee

Salty's avatar

My honey likes to have Sardines, with tomatoes and onions and one small piece of toast. I think it is icky, but he likes it and has so much energy from eating it. Oh yeah, he also puts vinegar on his onions. More Ick!!!

XrayGirl's avatar

bagels, croissnts, coffee cake, fruit salad, quiche, waffles, hash brown casserole, apple smoked bacon, sausage, chorizo

TheNakedHippie's avatar

WELL, I love brunch… Personally, I like seafood. You know, mussels, clams, crab legs, etc., also, fresh breads are good. Muffins, croissants and stuff like that. I think most people would anticipate fresh fruit, a starch of some kind (maybe a pasta salad or something), and some meat.

Good luck!

Raggedy_Ann's avatar

For brunch, anything with eggs usually works pretty well. Maybe some toasted croisannts, fruit. Juice and coffee too.

Ort's avatar

Can’t believe nobody has mentioned hot steel cut oatmeal with lightly toasted pecans, raisins, cinnamon and chopped apples, strawberries or blueberries with a drizzle of maple syrup or honey. That and a cup of earl grey tea with cream…

kevinhardy's avatar

french toast
biscuits and white gravy

Kraken's avatar

Turkey sausage links without the casing.
Add real maple syrup with them. Yum city!

ragingloli's avatar

boiled sausage with a slice of bread and mustard.

Strauss's avatar

oops! date!

jerrytown's avatar

BACON, i just cant get enough of it.

JLeslie's avatar

French toast, bacon, bagels and lox ONLY if you live in a city with decent bagels and lox, and I have THE BEST recipe for buttermilk poundcake made in a bundt pan that you can serve with berries.

lefteh's avatar

You won’t believe me, but here in Columbus, Ohio, we have damn good bagels and lox. You just have to know where to go.

JLeslie's avatar

@lefteh I believe you :).

NUNYA's avatar

Pancakes and poached eggs if making it at home. At McDonalds I like Egg McMuffins!

Dr_Dredd's avatar

It’s a toss-up between blueberry pancakes and a ham, cheese, and onion omelet.

Ghost_in_the_system's avatar

Hot, buttered grits. Yeah, grits.

erikaerika's avatar

chocolate chip waffles…or pancakes. i like the little circle hashbrowns too a lot

GrumpyGram's avatar

Heat flour tortillas in a damp towel in the microwave. Butter them, then add scrambled eggs and pico de gallo. Roll up. Add orange juice and Folger’s Instant Vanilla Capuccino.

youmeatsix's avatar

if i wake up in the morning am not hungry but if its the afernoon i like cocopops for my breakfast or pancakes with chocolate spread, a simple breakfast !!!

Strauss's avatar

1. 2 eggs, over easy, with chicken fried steak and cream gravy, hash browns, sourdough toast and strawberry jelly, with coffee to drink, with a side of ice water. I usually save the toast and jelly for last, kind of like dessert.

2. Chicharrone, egg and potato breakfast burrrito

gailcalled's avatar

@Yetanotheruser : Still, I bet you’re hungry again after a week. Do you take two statins after that meal instead of ant-acids?

Strauss's avatar

@gailcalled LOL.Those are two of my favorites. If I have my #1, it’s usually as “breakfast-for-dinner” or my main meal of the day, supplemented by lots of physical energy and some real healthy food.


Sardine toast.

megan5555's avatar

I recken bacon, eggs, waffles with strawberries and a capachino.
The PERFECT breakfast:)
