Fried dried fish. Garlic rice. Local sausage(longganisa) Eggs(boiled, sunny side up, omelette or scrambled). Beef jerky(tapa). Those are just few of what we, Filipinos have for breakfast. This morning, a friend asked me a random question. what is the typical breakfast for us Ilocanos(ethnolinguistic group here in Ilocos Region, Northern Philippines). A question I really think about what is it. Yes, I fell into deep thinking. Answered her, maybe "lomo lomo"--a pork soup dish with liver, kidney, and pork loin sauteed in garlic, onion and tomatoes with Chinese cabbage. A hearty and soupy dish in the morning, eaten with steamed rice. So, I will be asking you, what is your typical breakfast?

Well, here in the UK it is nothing like that. A lot of people just go for cereal and toast and coffee. If you go for a hotel breakfast you will probably get the full English. That is egg, beans, sausages, tomatoes, black pudding, and toast. Orange juice, coffee or tea. Most hotels serve some variation on that and so do cafes, but in hotel you would get the things associated with a continental breakfast as well if it is buffet style. Then you get things like fruit, cheese, croissants, cold meats, yoghurt and so on. I just had coffee and toast spread with Marmite for my breakfast and no cereal. We usually have cold, rather than hot milk on cereal.

I am Italian and in Italy we eat a very light breakfast, usually coffee or cappuccino with toasted bread butter and preserve (jam), sometimes a croissant, a yogurt and some fruits.

@Lucky15 Pandesal is pretty popular in Portugal, it is a common bread roll made of flour, eggs, yeast, sugar, and salt. It's pretty good.

I don't think I will be eating some of your breakfast ideas, Reine! (How can you eat jerky for breakfast? Or fish?) Typical breakfast for me would be egg omelet made with three eggs, some type of pre-cooked meat (usually sausage), cheese, onion (diced), green pepper (diced), salt and pepper. On a different day I might have a sandwich made with a buttermilk biscuit, sausage patty (or ham slice), one egg fried and a slice of cheese. Or I might have an egg omelet wrapped in a tortilla. Sometimes I eat one of those already named without meat included.

Breakfast for you is very healthy! For me, it's either eggs and toast, or yogurt with fruit or some oatmeal.

@Lucky15 The USA has always had it wrong, I think. We've been told that it's better to eat heavy earlier in the day and eat light at night. But it's so hard to make that change! I don't know why we've been raised this way!

I don't eat a hearty breakfast at all @Lucky15 , I usually have a bowl of cereal or a slice of toast. I sometimes think we should have a big breakfast and smaller meals through the day. But mornings are too rushed. :)

I think Ilocanos love dried fish and fried rice for breakfast. You can add shredded tomatoes with fish paste.
