A Tribute To Breakfast


Breakfast. Whether you eat it

  • in the morning,
  • at night,
  • with family and friends,
  • in front of the television,
  • in a restaurant,
  • watching the sun rise or watching it set,
  • hot or cold

– it’s arguably the best meal of the day. Amiright? And even if you choose to keep it basic with cereal, pancakes, a fruit, toast…I could keep going, it’s still mmmmmmgood. Once you start adding your own personal touch to it – magic. And you never grow out of loving it. 

But some people may think american’s lack imagination when it comes to breakfast – that I completely disagree with. Now whether or not we put in the effort or have the time to create it is a separate issue.

Here’s a list of quintessential breakfast meals in America and a few from around the world. Bon appetite!


Forget about fast food breakfast and breakfast bars that come in a box – block it from your mind. It’s popular, yes, but extremely overrated! Let me restore your faith in making something yummy at home with a recipe.

1. Hashbrown and eggs

Hashbrowns and eggs

UPDATE: I made these this morning (4-2-15) and they were the BOMB DOT COM!!! We were on a tight schedule this morning to get my daughter to her a.m. jump rope club meetup, so yes….I look crazy 🙂 But the hashbrown…mmmmm!

  • Thick Hot Chocolate
  • Churros

This I found from USA Today and just had to add because of our upcoming move to Spain.



  • fermented soybean dish called natto
  • white rice,
  • miso soup,
  • kabocha squash simmered in soy sauce and sweet sake (kabocha no nimono),
  • pickled cucumber,
  • rolled egg omelet (tamagoyaki)
  • grilled salmon.


  • honey and clotted cream, called kaymak, on toasted bread
  • green and black olives
  • fried eggs with a spicy sausage called sucuk
  • butter
  • hard-boiled eggs
  • thick grape syrup (pekmez) with tahini on top
  • an assortment of sheep-, goat- and cow-milk cheeses
  • quince and blackberry jams
  • pastries and bread
  • tomatoes, cucumbers, white radishes and other fresh vegetables
  • kahvaltilik biber salcasi, a paste made of grilled red peppers
  • hazelnut-flavored halvah, the dense dessert
  • milk and orange juice


  • a single kiwi
  • tartine, an open-faced baguette with butter and blackberry jam
  • cold cereal with milk
  • and freshly squeezed orange juice


  • cornmeal porridge called phala with soy and groundnut flour
  • deep-fried fritters made of cornmeal, onions, garlic and chiles, along with boiled sweet potato and pumpkin

  • oatmeal porridge is called hafragrautur, a staple breakfast in Iceland. The oatmeal is cooked in water or milk and often served with brown sugar, maple syrup, butter, fruit or surmjolk (sour milk).
  • lysi, or cod-liver oil. For part of the year, when the sun barely clears Iceland’s horizon, sunlight is a poor source of vitamin D — but the vitamin is plentiful in fish oils.


  •  glass of milk
  • bread with unsalted butter and — most important — sweet sprinkles, which come in multiple flavors (chocolate, vanilla, fruit) and sizes (small, large, shavings)
    • Fun Fact:Dutch eat at least 750,000 slices of bread topped with the chocolate sprinkles called hagelslag (‘‘hailstorm’’)


  • A cup of chocolate milk or coffee
  • ham and cheese
  • pão com manteiga, bread with butter.

It’s always almost Saturday and that’s a great time to get cookin!
