Would anyone like to share their favorite Breakfast meal with me? I am looking for new ideas to serve in the mornings. Eggs, homemade hashbrowns and sausage are getting pretty old.........

We don't ever have anything exciting here. Sometimes I'll make omelets, and even more rarely biscuits and gravy.

I rarely dabble in breakfast making (just eggs and pancakes on weekends sometimes) but I do extensively use websites . Check out this link to see if there's anything that interests you:


The ratings and reviews are nice features. I've used a few recipes from this site with pretty good luck.

Thank you Viki, once summer is in full swing, I will be making fruit pizza and stuff, but unripened fruit on fruit pizza spoils the taste!

Today, I made a batch of chocolate chip orange zucchini bread. Quick breads are great for breakfast and it freezes wonderfully.

You're killing me! Last week I thought I was treating myself when I stole a bowl of my kids' Lucky Charms!

This is really good when company is coming or you have big plans for the day because you can prepare it the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning! You can also use any breakfast meat with this recipe - I've had it with sausage or bacon and it is good with any of them!

Baked Ham & Egg Breakfast

3 cups cubed ham
1/2 lb. cheddar or american cheese, grated
3 cups cubed french bread
3 Tblsp melted margerine
3 Tblsp flour
1 Tsp. dry mustard
4 eggs
3 cups milk

In 9x13" pan, layer ham, cheese and bread. Drizzle margerine over this. Combine flour and mustard; sprinkle on. Beat eggs, add milk. Pour over. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight. Bake 1 hour at 350 or until puffy. Serves 8.

if you have kids, it might be fun to add a little food coloring to pancakes. say, if you use blue color, add some blueberries in the mix. or add fruit and whip cream to waffles. yum! my fav is what my grandma would always make when i would spend the night when i was a little girl. oats and toast. not the instant kind, the real stuff. add some butter, sugar and a little milk on top.

I really like an old favorite of sailors. SOS, aka creamed beef on toast, but I do it a lot easier. Brown some ground chuck, get or make some white gravy, mix it together and spread it over toast. Pioneer brand gravy is pretty good for it. I have a recipe for a really good egg and potato pie. If I can find it, I'll post it.
post #13 of 41
My mom always used to do the colored pancakes for special occasions, like pink for Valentine's Day, Green for St. Patty's, etc. It was fun.

We would do SOS the same way Krazy Kat! Hamburger with white gravy on toast. Dad called it Slop on a Shingle or S$%@ on a Shingle when we were older. It's really good and really fast.

I love an overflowing bowl of fruit loops!!

The most gormet I get for breakfast is eggs, toast, and bacon. (on occasion) Fruit pizza??? Sounds....interesting I guess. But let's face it, I can barely cook a dinner...so I don't think I'll be making the fruit pizza or anything else. Gotta love good old fruit loops! Just add milk, and enjoy. Ah, the simple life...
post #15 of 41
Pretty darn boring here too..... Croissants..... and pate on toast YUM (and of course... PopTarts... haha) but usually I just force down some crappy Cardboard bran flakes.... bleah.... :LOL:
post #16 of 41
Mmmm... I had cinnamon crispex. Nothing special but sure is good.
post #17 of 41
Falling Rain, I'm with you on the fruit loops!

What about breakfast tacos? Over here we call them taquitos. You can make them is such a variety like:

Egg, sausage & cheese
Egg, bacon & cheese
Egg and potatoe (hasbrowns)

Some people like to add chopped peppers to give them a kick.

All wraped in a flour tortilla.
post #18 of 41
Mmm . . . breakfast burritos!

I like some egg and cheese and salsa, sometimes crumbled sausage, mushrooms, or rice. I mix most of it into the egg, except the cheese - unless it's shredded - and the salsa. Okay, I'm hungry now! :tounge2: Just dropped my daughter off at school and haven't eaten yet today.

My mother used to make porridge for us, which we also ate with brown sugar and milk. I always wondered why she called it porridge and everyone else called it Quaker Oats! Also she made something called Welsh rarebit, which I have also heard called Welsh Rabbit, if my dad asked her to. I didn't like the sharp cheese in it, so I have no recipe, but if it sounds good to you, the library will read a recipe for you. I don't know if people make it here, or just in the U.K.
Of course, I thought everyone ate creamed tripe too, which is actually very good! Don't ask what it is!

What on earth are moon eggs????????

I usually just end up with a cup of tea and some biscuits. If we're pushing the boat out, I'll have crunchy nut cornflakes, or on really special occasions, bacon sarnies.

Boring huh??
post #21 of 41
What are bacon sarnies?
post #22 of 41
EWWWWWWWWW Jeanie!! How can you tell me off about PopTarts, when you like TRIPE?!?!?!? EWWWWWWWW!!!! You do know they put that in dog food don't you?!?!?!?!?! :LOL: ITS TRUE!!!! :LOL:

Sunlion - Bacon Sandwiches, we call 'em sarnies over here for short
post #23 of 41
Oh and don't worry, Welsh Rarebit/Rabbit, has nothing to do with Rabbits!! hahaha we call it "Cheese on toast" Exotic eh?!?! haha
post #24 of 41
Normally I don't eat breakfast - makes me ill in the morning when I have to go on the bus (1 hr ride). Sometimes on weekends I have scrambled eggs and bacon or Canadian back bacon. Love french toast. Occasionaly go out for apple cinnimen wallfles. Thanks - now I'm hungry!
post #25 of 41
Yes, what ARE moon eggs? Rhea, if Welsh Rarebit is just toasted cheese, why did my mother make such a fuss about how hard it was to prepare? As for tripe, it WAS good. As soon as I found out what it was I didn't eat it any more. She made it with leeks and a rich creamy sauce. If you have eaten pepper pot soup, you have eaten tripe, because it's listed as an ingredient. Oh, my Mother loved tongue, too. One day I asked her what kind of lunchmeat tongue was, and she asked, "Well, what do you think a tongue is?" Yuck!!!!!However, my question was not that dumb. She made potted head (potted hheed, she called it) and it was just roast beef jelled inside a bowl, turned out and sliced. So why would tongue be a tongue?
Here's a simple and common breakfast, but I like it: a bagel with cream cheese and strawberry jam. That's as exotic as I get now.
post #26 of 41
Mmmmmmmm Breakfast! My favorite meal of the day Well here's what I like, but I don't make them that often...french toast, crepes with strawberries inside and cool whip on top (my all time fav!) , waffles, pancakes with chocolate chips, hashbrowns, egg mcmuffins, eggs and bacon, and my mom used to make egg quiches (sp?)(with tomatos, green peppers, onions, ham, bacon, and cheese) alot and they were really good! Buscuits and gravy sounds really good.

All this breakfast talk is making me want to go home and cook some eggs and bacon lol.
post #27 of 41
Not much of a breakfast person. Day shift: no time, I munch on candy til lunch. Swing shift: Usually, a bacon & cheese bagel. If I'm home, in the AM on weekends, Bill cooks bacon or ham, eggs, hash browns, biscuits and gravy. Unfortunately, his gravy isn't very good and I can't make it at all. Out for breakfast, sometimes, I like waffles or French toast, with strawberry syrup. The best: an omelet with jack & chedder cheese, green chiles & jalapenos!

Take your bread - usually white or wheat. Place a small glass in the middle of it and push down so you cut out a hole. This is the 'moon'.
Butter both sides and then place in frying pan on medium to low heat. Drop in an egg. Cook on both sides until you like the color. Place on your plate and sprinkle some parmesan cheese over and serve!

(we 'toast' the cutouts too in the fry pan)
post #29 of 41
Ah, moon eggs. Thanks for the description, but here, we call them "toad in the hole":tounge2: Different name, but the same thing.
post #30 of 41
Now that is sooo weird!! Toad in the hole over here is totally different!! Its Sausages in huge fat Yorkshire Pudding and gravey!! By the way, what IS thist biscuits and gravey I keep hearing about!! - Biscuits here are the same as your cookies so that kinda sounds really gross!! haha
Jeanie, Im not sure about the "Welsh Rare Bit" - maybe your mum was joking or maybe she just had a way of doing it really fancy?? I know some people put alot of other ingredients in it other than just cheese, so maybe she did that?
