Title Savory breakfast, what's your favorite

TVC15 Oct 22, 2007 10:10 AM

I seem to have trouble these days with any kind of traditional breakfast.
I just can't face anything sweet. My wife likes korean food for the first meal, and today
I had leftover egg noodles with carmalized onions and roast pork gravy.
I recall David Waltruck in his staffmeals cookbook says he prefers non-traditional breakfasts foods.
What about you? Give me some ideas.

    No contest -- English fry up: sunny-side-up eggs, fried toast, grilled tomatoes, sauteed mushrooms, tinned beans, black pudding, streaky bacon and sausage.

    For the timid, there's always the Filipino breakfast of garlic fried rice, eggs, home-cured bacon (or beef tapa or pork longaniza), and salted fish. A Pakistani nihari or haleem might be a little more adventurous.

      I like our breakfast from Paula Wolfert: Biblical Breakfast Burrito:

      It's tomatoes, parsley, green onions, cukes, red peppers, feta cheese, chopped fresh jalapenos to taste, salt and pepper and olive oil. Everything is chopped and then mixed with the olive oil and seasoned.

      Then it's served in a pita pocket. It's even great with coffee with cream.

      You can vary the filling - sometimes I use radishes, cilantro, white onions, celery, etc. It's not that great during the cold weather when tomatoes are terrible.

      I'm a big fan of savoury brekkies. Soup when it's cold out (hot and sour with lots of veggies is a fave, though you can never go wrong with a chunky minestrone) or congee; veggie baked buns or bings; quesadillas or soft tacos; veggie fried rice; sliced polenta; tea eggs; and of course, leftover pizza.

        My version of steak and eggs,

        A nice prime bone in filet, 2 or 3 over-easy eggs, and some hashbrowns with onoins.

        Sometimes I go the sandwich route as well, and have a corned beef, or turkey and swiss sandwich on a fresh kaiser role. Just meat, cheese, and mayo.

          Ugh, I'm in the same boat as you. My go to for the morning is either a turkey or ham on whole wheat, or a home made egg, cheese and ham sandwich on an english muffin, popped into the micro to just warm up.

            Biscuits and gravy. Huevos rancheros with refried beans and tortillas.

            I went through a phase many years ago where I ate patty melts and turkey sandwiches for breakfast.
