    If a Bulgarian Jew moved to Arkansas I imagine this is what they would be eating for breakfast.

    Sardines, Grits, Eggs, Toasted Bialy, Raw Onion w/Marie Sharps Habanero Hot Sauce

    Leftover fundido con queso w/chorizo from La Condessa, stuffed in a jalapeno omelet and wrapped in the leftover homemade tortillas, I made sure to grab before we left.

    My good friend Smokey the Whitefish stopped by for breakfast today:

    I made sure he was quite comfortable on a bed of toast, farmer's cheese and red onion.

    It was delightful to see him. I hope he stops by again soon.

    Best,

    Hi,

    Freshly fork mashed potatoes with butter accompanied by fresh from Northwest Indiana Bolshevik sausage.

    Liver and garlic may be a bit strong in the morning though tempered by the potatoes, it hit the spot.

    Regards,

    Wow. Those are some serious breakfasts... and some very beautiful photos. Thanks much for posting them.

    What are the flavours of the porridge and nori paste like? It looks great but I know nothing about either of the elements of that dish...

    TIA
    Antonius


    Finally got around to restoring the photos in my original post, and to answer your questions (sorry 2 yrs late) - the porridge tastes like porridge cooked in broth with egg; The nori paste tastes tsuyu-ish (soy & sugar) with "mashed" dried nori.

    Last year, when I was in Korea, I breakfasted on Kimchi Jjigae (kimchee soup with tofu and pork). Wow, what a way to start the day!

    When I lived in the Philippines, fish and rice were the norm for breakfast. Or a plate of fried garlic rice, eggs, and sweet Portuguese-style sausage. McDonald's now carries this on their breakfast menu in the Philippines.

    My other favorite breakfasts:

    1) cold leftover pizza, usually pan, topped with black olives and mushrooms.

    OR

    2) Fried rice, island style (rice, egg, cubed SPAM, diced green onion, and a dash of patis*) with a generous helping of kimchee.

    OR

    3) Ham & egg bun from Chiu Quon Bakery in Chinatown (or Argyle).

    OR

    4) cold leftover fried chicken.

    In Germany I was treated to black bread, strong ham, smelly cheese and some very pleasant tea - choice of peppermint or fruit tea. I'm actually a little surprised there wasn't a shot of schapps on the side of the plate...

    My ex-girlfriend was Chinese and during the Moon Festival someone gave us a case of moon cakes. She, like most young Chinese nowadays, hates moon cakes after being forced to eat so many of them as a child. So I would have one every morning for breakfast with my coffee before heading off to work.

    This morning's breakfast:

    Whole grain toast with sliced tomato, cottage cheese and black pepper.

    :shock: We grew up eating moon cake sliced like pie and would have a "slice" at a sitting - to eat a whole mooncake in one sitting sounds obscene (although I'm not certain what the proper technique really is...) - the mooncakes we had were the typical ~10cm rounds that came 4 to a tin pre-packaged.

    Last night, as we were ordering take-out from our nearby Cantonese hole-in-the-wall, I had an inspired thought and added an order of egg foo yung.

    So this morning's breakfast was les omelettes chinoises avec le porc, and quite delectable.

    Wing Wah is no destination spot, but it's generally reliable on Cantonese standards if you're in the neighborhood. Egg rolls, the fat Americanized kind, are particularly good, and last night's shrimp toast was delicious, too, although it suffered a bit in travel. Portions are large, and they tend to throw in an extra appetizer when you order carryout.

    I'm the opposite. I mostly like sweet things for breakfast. I'll have omelets and bacon and hashbrowns but somehow eating what I consider "lunch and dinner food" for breakfast just does not cut it. I think some of it is cultural. We would eat sweet pastries and coffee cakes for breakfast quite a lot and when there was left over homemade apple pie, we would eat that for breakfast.

    On my travels to India, my Indian mother in law would serve chicken stew with idli, masala dosa and curries for breakfast; I never did get used to it and longed for something sweet. Jam and an english muffin, cereal, oatmeal, fruit, etc. Old habits die hard.

    And I'm just the opposite. All savory for me. The Golden Nugget's 4 Deuces. Every kind of salty, fatty, breafkast thing around, dunked in a yolk. Or corned beef hash with 2 sunny or poached on top. Greek omelets: love the tang of good feta perking up the unctuousness of eggs. And let there be potatoes. Please. You want to thrown in a side of pancakes, fine, I'll take it.

    But I run shuddering from those popular breakfast/brunch spots where people line up for blocks to dig into the signature bourbon-baked-maple-praline-chocolate chip-banana-challah-french toast-topped with whipped cream and maraschino cherries.

    Other than that prejudice, I'll eat almost anything for breakfast. Whatever's left over from last night is fine. And I'll take it cold from the fridge to boot. As long as there's good fresh coffee.

    I'm with you on the savory breakfast items, mrbarolo. In the military our preferred and usual breakfast fare was hamburger in cream gravy over toast (AKA SOS) with two sunnyside eggs on top of the whole mess. Drink of choice was half white milk/half chocolate milk and then coffee and "Stars & Stripes" newspaper.

    This week are Sparky's first ISATS, I've been concentrating on making high-protien breakfasts for him. Thus far, I don't know that any of them have been shocking, but some were a little out of the ordinary for us:

    Whole-grain frozen waffle with Nutella and frozen strawberries (the spouse had eaten our stash, but fortunately I had some homemade Nutella left from World Nutella Day)
    Cottage cheese with pineapples and strawberries
    Polenta cakes fried with ham and cheese

    Tomorrow, I'm planning on making oatmeal-cottage cheese pancakes topped with fruit.

    Lucky break. My family decided on a last-minute dinner at Mado last night, same day as the pig roast at Goose Island to benefit Slow Food Chicago. For the event, Rob Levitt stuffed a pig with sausage. Possibly the best leftovers I've ever had:

    Image

    But that's not it. Repeat for breakfast this morning thanks to a mighty porky take-home bag from Rob and Chris. This is my cut; Mama happy_stomach took the jowl. Skin was still crispy at six this morning.

    A few weeks ago I bought some chickpea flour for pakoras and since then I've been trying to find other ways to use it. For the past week and a half or so, I have been eating this for breakfast:

    Image

    May not look like much, especially with my terrible cell phone photo, but it's pretty great. It's a chickpea flour crepe with finely diced onions, tomatoes, garlic, ginger, turmeric, white pepper and curry powder mixed into the batter, smeared with a little Patak's Garlic Relish, then an over-easy egg on top and some green chili chutney.

    Now this is a man after my own heart. Cold pizza is the ne plus ultra of breakfasts.

    Most of the week it's been homemade countertop yogurt, homemade maple-almond granola, and frozen wild blueberries.

    Today my sweetie's back in town after a week-long trip... it's going to be freshly squeezed grapefruit juice; hashbrowns; eggs scrambled with hot Italian sausage, red onions, red peppers, and spinach; and espresso with a dab of cream.

    LTH,

    Stopped at Andy's Deli on the way home last night for tuna salad, I love their tuna salad. Also picked up a kishka and some baloney. Not much of a baloney eater, but every once in a great while I like it pan fried w/bbq sauce for breakfast or lunch.

    Pan Fried Baloney w/Open Pit BBQ sauce, Caramelized onions and sunny side up egg on pan toasted Pticek Bakery bun

    Enjoy,
