Shamelessly piggybacking off this thread…what is your lazy Sunday morning/Treat Myself/Not Really Good For You But It Tastes Wonderful breakfast?
For me, it’s either crisp bacon and cheddar cheese on a buttered toast sandwich, or crisp bacon and cheddar cheese on bread with Miracle Whip (take the Miracle Whip discussion to another thread. I like it.)
On the weekends, I usually don’t eat breakfast early in the mornings, so for me this is normally brunch, and I have chips with it. (Crisps for our Dopers across the pond.)
Coffee, however, is an absolute.
Biscuits and gravy with a fried egg on top.
We had a family tradition of a Sunday morning big breakfast. Each family member would choose one item - didn’t matter what it was - then we’d cook up all the chosen items and call it breakfast. I don’t do it for myself alone now, but when I’m visiting my kiddos, we still do it. Since it was participants choice, sometimes the combos were a bit weird, but overall, pretty tasty.
My choice was usually a big ole puffy omelet made with 3 eggs and whipped a bit with some real cream. Yummers.
Has to be a full English:
Sausage, bacon, black pudding, fried egg, mushrooms and tomato. Couple of rounds of buttered toast (hold back one slice for marmalade), cup o’ tea.
If I’m visiting my friend in Glasgow he’ll kindly add a slice of lorne sausage and a slice of haggis.
Potatoes, green peppers, and onions chopped up and pan-fried in some butter, then covered in way too much ketchup. And it’s gotta be Heinz.
Fried sausage or bacon, a waffle with smuckers fruit syrup, and hash browns with an over easy egg on top all washed down with a hot cup of coffee.
Tough to choose. Biscuits and gravy always hits the spot, but a big bowl of creamy and cheesy grits with a couple of over-hard eggs on top, sided with bacon, is soooo good.
I’ll have what he’s having.
Corned beef hash and hash browns.
I like hash.
It sucks for my blood sugar and I’m starving two hours later, but my comfort food breakfast, at least in the winter (I don’t want it when it’s hot out) is cream of wheat, made with (almond) milk. With a lot of butter and a little sugar. Mmm, so comforting and warming and delicious.
Crisp hashbrowns, with sautéed onions mixed in, SOS and 2 easy-over eggs on top. Lots of freshly-ground black pepper, then it’s all mooshed up and eaten with a spoon(a comfortably large one) The spoon adds to the wonderful mouthfeel the dish provides, a fork simply cannot. Buttered, seeded rye bread, toasted, as a mopper-upper.
Canned hash, fried eggs, buttered toast, and lots of black coffee. If I have no plans for the day, I may dump a shot of brandy in the last cup of coffee.
Frozen Jimmy Dean breakfast bowl consisting of steak, eggs, potatoes, and cheddar cheese. Three minutes in the microwave and done.
Country-fried steak with gravy, two eggs over easy, raisin toast, hash browns and sweet tea.
It’s a toss up between Eggs Benedict smothered in hollandaise sauce or 2 over easy eggs with a side of hash and toast.
Buttermilk blueberry pancakes smothered in butter and pure maple syrup, served with a side of applewood-smoked bacon and/or Jimmy Dean’s Pure Pork Sausage. Plus a pitcher of orange juice and a pot of strong black coffee. And maybe a pitcher of whole milk as well. :o
In a good breakfast place, I’ll order a chicken-fried steak with eggs.
The easier alternative to biscuits and gravy at home is the ever lovely hash browns with fried eggs on top. I probably only do the B&G about twice a year because of the toll on my arteries.
I can’t eat pancakes without either bacon or sausage. I wonder if that’s a sweet/savory thing going on.
