I love foods. I'm sure everyone else does. I think that a great variety of delicious foods are served during the day, breakfast that is, though nowadays we can serve almost any kind of food any time of the day. But I still want my favorite breakfast to be served in the morning. For you mylotters, what's your favorite breakfast or morning meal? I'm not a breakfast skipper. I enjoy eating morning meals. It's something I look forward to before I sleep at night at times especially when I had a good dinner. It's like still having a hangover from last night's scrumptious meal. The wonderful smell of food in the morning also wakes me up or gets me off my bed even though I'm still sleepy. I don't really have a single favorite, I love different pairings of food during breakfast. Here in our country, we're used in eating rice every meal. I love beef tapa (fried marinated beef pieces/strips) with fried sunny side up egg and garlic rice, I use vinegar as my condiment when eating this one. I also love boneless bangus (fried marinated boneless milkfish) with salted egg and tomatoes and fried rice. My other favorites are pancakes with butter or cream and maple syrup with hot chocolate and hot butter croissant with hot chocolate drink. Yum! I think I'm already drooling. How about you guys? What's your favorite breakfast or morning meal/s? =)

I need a variety of morning meal. One day dosa, the next day idly with vada, the next day puri with potato gravy, like that I like to eat a variety of dishes every day.

Hi kskumudha. I'm not familiar with the meals or foods you have mentioned. What type of cuisine are those? I'm thinking they can be found in the Asian region or perhaps part of Middle East. I'm not sure. Well, I love foods and I hope someday I could travel in different places and have a taste of their local food delicacies. =)

Ah I see. Yehey, I'm right about the Asian region. Hehe. I think people there uses a lot of spices. The meals must be very flavorful indeed. I love curry. I think it's part of the Indian cuisine if I'm not mistaken. I cook chicken curry at home though it's kind of like a simpler version of the original curry recipes. =)

My favorite breakfast is cold pizza! *LOL* Or really anything my hubby would like to whip up like pancakes, french toast or one of his awsome omlets. I tell ya the man could open up an omlet restaurant if we had the means & he had the desire.

An omelet restaurant or any food business is a nice idea since everyone loves to eat. Eggs are like a staple to many households. Omelets are also delicious and it has many variations, you could put almost anything. It's great to have a husband who knows how to cook or is a great cook. Way the go 3snugglebunnies. =)

I wouldn't say he's great, but he's pretty good. I don't care for his spaghetti he puts sugar in the sauce who does that?!?! But OMLETS I think are the best thing he makes oh & I guess BBQ ribs on the grill too!

Bbq meats are just fantastic. Most men really loves to grill, I think. Maybe he likes his spaghetti to be a bit sweet and not too sour. =)

OK...I read where someone mentioned cold pizza, which I love LOL. However, it is not my favorite. I am from the SOUTH, and some say that I am a redneck LOL. My favorite breakfast is grits, scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, fried potatoes, and toast. If I can not have this, I will settle for pancakes, bacon or sausage, and eggs. Now I am hungry. LOL
@yna410 (431)

There's a lot of you who really loves bacon and sausage. Well, it's really tasty and flavorful. I like grilled sausages that are a bit spicy placed on buns with ketchup, mayo, and mustard. I would like to have all the food you have mentioned in one breakfast seating. Hehe. I'm also getting hungry here. =)

biscuits and sausage gravy is also good. Also, my wife makes some pretty good tomato gravy that goes pretty well with sausage and biscuits...

Wow, tomato gravy. I haven't tasted that yet. I've heard about it before but the gravy that I usually eat here is the common one, like those in fastfoods. I'll try to do it maybe one of these days. =)

I usually skip breakfast. BUT if I had to wake up early, i would really be happy if I see pandesal (a local bread in my country) and hot chocolate (coffee only makes me feel sleepy LOL). My stomach doesn't agree with oily food so early in the day so no fried stuff for me. If I can't get pandesal, any toasted bread would do fine. If none of those are available, then cereals with milk. If that is still not available, I would not eat breakfast at all and wait for lunch.

I've experienced skipping breakfast when I was still studying and it didn't do any good for me. I usually get dizzy or I could already hear my stomach growling earlier than our break time but I was still able to manage it though it was a discomfort. I also like hot pandesal with butter that melts as you fold the bread, but in our place, pandesals are not that delicious. I want it to be a bit crispy on the outside then soft and gooey on the inside. The ones that are sold near our house is so tiny and a bit tough to chew. Well, good for you that you're not really a fan of oily foods. I eat some fried foods for breakfast but I still try to eat it in moderation and at long intervals. I'm glad to read that word "pandesal" here. =)

LOL there is a pretty big community of our kabayans here, so it's really fun. The opposite actually happens to me; I get dizzy when I eat breakfast and I even feel nauseous.I am quite happy that a good bakery is just a couple minutes walk from our new house, so I can still have the familiar crispy yet moist pandesal when I want to. the ones sold in bigger chains are not really my cup of tea; they are too soft and taste different. :))

You're lucky to have a good bakery near your house. That's really convenient. I also like pandesal from small local bakeries though I buy some spreads in the bigger chains. =)

Mine has to be a good old english breakfast. For those pople who are not aware of what this meal contains, it is: Fried bacon, fried eggs, fried bread and perhaps some sausages and tomatoes as well. It probably sounds really fatty but in reality it doesn't contain that many calories because its homemade. I just really love fried, crispy things but unfortunately the times I have had this meal are few and far between. =( But I do often have my second favourite meal, pan au chocolat (chocolate croissant). Its so nice because it has chocolate inside the croissant so that when you heat it up, the chocolate melts in the middle and all this melted chocolate comes oozing out when you take a bite. Its delicious! =D

I'm imagining that english breakfast of yours, mmmm... Fried crispy bacon is surely a hit to most people. I usually eat it with fried beaten egg and mayo placed between two slice breads. I haven't seen a chocolate croissant being sold here yet, that must be really good. I envy you. Hehe. Hope I can taste that one soon. =)
7 Nov 10
So do you usually have it as a bacon sandwich? They are really nice as well 'cos you have the contrast between the softness of the bread and the crispiness of the bacon, its just divine! Yeah, the English Breakfast can be someimtes be referred to by a Buldre's Breakfast but I think we only have it here in England, haha.
@yna410 (431)

Yup as a sandwich. I do like the contrast in texture. Sometimes it's my packed lunch at work because it's easier and faster to eat. I'm learning new terms about food from you. Thanks. =)

i usually just eat cereals or bread for breakfast... on some occasions and on my day off, i eat noodles, porridge or american breakfast (baked beans with ham, sausage and egg with orange juice or milk)... :-) breakfast is also a very important meal for me and i try not to skip it as it is good for my health... take care and have a nice day...
@yna410 (431)

You're right, breakfast is truly an important meal and should be a part of our daily routine. We should try not to skip it. Baked beans for breakfast is not really common here in our country though there are can stocks being sold in the grocery market. We usually eat it as a side dish of grilled meats like steaks in different restaurants. I also like fresh fruit juice like orange juice for breakfast. =)

Gosh, I'm also drooling too when I heard about all the delicacies you've mentioned. LOL! Ok, for me, I eat corn flakes and occasionally, muesli, which is my favourite. But I eat heavy breakfast regularly like fried noodles, which is my hot favourite. All these really lift my moods up and I feel good after that.
@yna410 (431)

I also like fried noodles but I usually eat it for lunch or dinner. There are some shops or restaurants here that sell a variety of noodle dishes but I think the taste and flavor of these are still different from the original ones, those that are being sold in other Asian countries. I'm looking forward to taste an authentic fried noodles, those I often see on different food shows. =)

Eggs with hot peppers is quite unusual for me but I like spicy foods, those that I can still handle the heat. =)

Eggs! Sunny side up or scrambled. When I'm outside I love Jollibee's breakfast steak. I don't know what's with the burger steak and egg combination but it's what I usually order there (sometimes I substitute their bangus or fried milkfish).
@yna410 (431)

Wow, Jollibee. I also like their breakfast meals. I usually order their longganiza with egg meal plus hot chocolate or their pancakes as well. Yum. =)

Yes. They have much better and more choices than McDonald's. And not as overpriced. :)

Omelet with cheese is also good. I usually eat oatmeal when I'm trying to lose some weight. I eat it for breakfast and dinner with some fruits. =)

My favorite morning meal is fried eggs as a viand with rice. I find that eggs give me energy i need for the morning. Then I drink buffalo milk (we call it carabao milk).
@yna410 (431)

Eggs are a good source of protein which also gives us additional energy. I usually eat eggs with ketchup if it's not paired with an additional food like hotdog, etc. Hehe. I don't like milk that much. I prefer chocolate drinks or fruit juices. =)

I eat a lot of vegetables but I don't usually have it in breakfast. Well, except for veggie omelet or hash browns which are made of potatoes. We incorporate our vegetable dishes with some meat either pork or chicken or sometimes we also use shrimp just to add more flavor. We usually have it for lunch or dinner. =)

definitely freshly baked break , some butter,cheese spread and a warm glass of milk,heaven i tell you..... seriously have you ever had a loaf of freshly baked bread, the crunch ,the smell the fresh baked goodness that burst's in your mouth when you eat it..... sorry got a little hungry,but have a try at it ,it's a little dry though so wash it down with a little milk , nothing beats that. I've had everything,porridge,rice eggs,sandwiches,even steak,nothing beats freshly baked bread with some spread, in the morning,and a glass to wash it all down.
@yna410 (431)

Yup, I also love freshly baked breads, slabbed them with butter and then the butter just melts perfectly. I eat it while it's still hot. Garlic butter is also great to use. I'm not a big fan of milk though. I like hot chocolate paired with these warm breads. =)

I always make sure that I have a sufficient breakfast in the mornings and this consists of two boiled eggs with toast and a cup of tea! It's not bad and it keeps me going throughout the day and it only takes ten minutes to prepare. I remember the days when I used to have cereal for breakfast, a bowl of rice crispies I think it was!. Those days have long gone though and I will never return to them! I will have eggs for breakfast for the remainder of my days! Eggs are good for you in any case and they are full of protein and vitamins. Andrew

Yes, I agree that eggs are good sources of protein. It's good to have it in the morning. I also used to eat cereals for breakfast, wheat cereals with almonds or chocolate cereals, but I'm not really a fan of milk. =)

@yna410 (431)
• Philippines
8 Nov 10
Yup, longganisa is also delicious. There's a lot of variety available in the market. I usually eat Vigan and Pampanga longganisa. I'm not really a fan of milk though, but I'm trying to drink more often to get more calcium in my body. =)

my favorite morning meal is bread+milk+egg, very normal, but I think it's healthy to have some vegetables and fruits too. but most of the time, I can not get up early, so I have to skip breakfast.I do know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but I just can not get up early
@yna410 (431)

There are days I wake up late but most of the time, I'm able to enjoy my breakfast. Yes I agree, it's good to have fruits in the morning to start our day the healthier way, though we seldom serve fruits in the morning. We eat it like a snack or dessert usually after lunch or dinner. =)

I love salted eggs and smoked fish with not so ripe tomato. I love plain rice. My morning meal is incomplete without fruits. Milk/chocolate drinks/tea or fruit shakes will also make my meal and my day complete.

I also love salted eggs with tomatoes. Are you referring to tinapa with the smoked fish? My dad loves tinapa na bangus or milkfish and those small type of fish as well. I have tried a fried rice mixed with salted eggs, tinapa and tomatoes in one local restaurants here and it was super delicious. We paired it with pork barbecue and baked mussels, we had it for lunch though. =)

Yes, hot pandesal is also good. I seldom eat fried danggit though I also like it because I love vinegar and I usually use this in many fried foods. =)
