Participation Required: Ultimate Breakfast! Uncategorized Add comments Jun 262013 Venti 6 shot peppermint mocha, and a bacon egg cheese “artisan” sandwich, at Starbucks. Bliss. Sorry this is late, I lost track of the days due to work. Yours? Related 46 Responses to “Participation Required: Ultimate Breakfast!” Derek Thornton says: June 26, 2013 at 7:11 pm Scrambled eggs, grits (with just a little sugar), Folger’s Toasted Hazelnut Coffee black, and…(drum roll) bacon! Boring, yes, but I like it. I usually only eat bfast on the weekends, but this is what I like. My wife was born into a different clan of grits eaters. She thinks I am crazy to put sugar in it. She likes hers with a pat of margarine. Of course, on tea I am the opposite of most Southerners. Can’t stand sugar in my tea. erunner says: June 26, 2013 at 7:25 pm A huge belgian waffle covered with syrup, fruit, and doused with powdered sugar. Hash browns on the side with bacon and ice cold chocolate milk. But since I can’t eat that I’ll settle with a green smoothie with an orange, kale, cucumber, spinach, and some minute maid light lemonade. What have I become!! 🙂 Reuben says: June 26, 2013 at 7:27 pm Oh E, I liked your first better! Derek, sugar goes in tea. That is the way things are. Failure to comply results in accusations of heresy and such. Especially in the south. Derek Thornton says: June 26, 2013 at 7:32 pm Trust me I know. My wife has to make separate pitchers. Sun brewed is the best! peggy says: June 26, 2013 at 8:00 pm Derek…. we have sweet and un-sweet too. My brekkie nirvana is: french toast, bacon and browns. Hot tea with milk and maybe some grapefruit juice. Anne says: June 26, 2013 at 8:20 pm Right there with you, E. As a result I feel better, have more energy at 60 than I did at 50. Know I may not live any longer, but may be able to do for myself longer w/o having to depend on others for my care. Off of statins, no longer pre-diabetic and off other meds too which more than helps cover the cost of all those yummy veggies Once a week I do splurge on eggs, bacon, hash browns or whatever hits my fancy. Miss New Mexico, where it would be a nice stack of enchiladas with an egg or two on top! Jim says: June 26, 2013 at 8:30 pm Although my Florida-born wife is a beach girl, her “people” are from rural Georgia. If I tried to put sugar on grits, I’d get smacked at momma’s house, there is only one type of tea-sweet, and since I spent the first 12 years of my life in Maryland, I’ll always be a yankee. Bless their hearts…. Derek Thornton says: June 26, 2013 at 8:33 pm LOL…Bless their hearts j2theperson says: June 26, 2013 at 8:47 pm 3 scrambled eggs with parmesan cheese–2 for me and one for Calice. Then I get to internet while I eat and she is in her high chair. Michael says: June 26, 2013 at 9:21 pm Sausage breakfast burrito from the Frontier restaurant in Albuquerque,NM followed by one of their ginormous cinnamon rolls…followed by going back to bed to sleep it all off. Here at home…Ham steak and eggs with an apple juice from Debbies Diner. Coffee. from The Human Bean or Dutch Bros…Starbucks is for sissies and Californians. 🙂 Martin Luther's Disciple says: June 26, 2013 at 9:34 pm Cold pizza – but I don’t get it often and you can’t find it in a restaurant. jlo says: June 26, 2013 at 9:37 pm The ultimate breakfast: Growing up I had a stay at home Mom, she cooked breakfast lunch and dinner six days a week. Sunday was Dad’s day to cook. My Dad would get up early and go to the local swap meet and putter around, most times he would go by himself, buy a few tools and come home to wake all us girls up. As we were waking and coming around the breakfast table he would be frying bacon and hash browns. Once we were all gathered he would have one of us set the table, one would be on toast patrol, and then he would start cracking eggs and frying them in the bacon grease. That to me is the ultimate breakfast. Not one I have very often, but when I do it is the best breakfast ever. filbertz says: June 26, 2013 at 9:43 pm French Toast with the egg wash flavored with a dash of vanilla and sprinkle of nutmeg; side of eggs over medium, sausage patties, a biscuit with some sausage gravy (that’s why sausage patties 😉 ) and/or hashbrowns with sausage gravy…strong black coffee, apple juice, all family style! Michael says: June 26, 2013 at 9:47 pm fil, I’ll be there about 9… 🙂 That sounded way too good… Xenia says: June 26, 2013 at 9:58 pm Green smoothie and a scrambled egg, fresh from the hen. Like J2, I sprinkle a little Parmesan on the egg. Ixtlan says: June 26, 2013 at 10:15 pm “Coffee from The Human Bean or Dutch Bros…Starbucks is for sissies and Californians.” There it is….. amen….. Since its required: My favorite breakfast: three eggs, over medium, two biscuits, hash browns all covered with white sausage gravy and Tabasco. Four sausage links and four strips of bacon. Four cups of coffee, or, in the old days, two bottles of beer or a bloody Mary and two cups of coffee. hell ya!! Michael says: June 26, 2013 at 10:25 pm Ixtlan, I have to quit reading this thread or I’m headed to the truck stop for a heart attack on a plate…that sounded really good. Over easy, please. Paigemom says: June 26, 2013 at 10:29 pm Coffee IS breakfast….. Organic French Roast made ‘pour over’ style into a pre heated beautiful mug, VERY strong and a good slosh of local organic half n half….. yum Ixtlan says: June 26, 2013 at 10:40 pm we’ll have to grab some breakfast together one of these days Michael 🙂 Paigemom – most days at home, its pour over, 30 oz. double strength coffee freshly ground from Central America; black, of course….. 😉 London says: June 26, 2013 at 10:51 pm Breakfast burrito. Nuff said Anne says: June 26, 2013 at 10:52 pm Dang. Now I’m jonesing for some biscuits and gravy. Served with chicken fried steak, hashbrowns and eggs. Too many years of that is why I’m drinking smoothies now, LOL! Captain Kevin says: June 26, 2013 at 11:07 pm A ham and cheese omelette for two, the best biscuits and gravy in the world, and a big glass of ice cold milk from the Lumberjack Café in Ruch, Oregon (which, sadly doesn’t exist anymore). More realistically, I like the same artisan sandwich and peppermint mocha that Reuben posted (well, not exactly the same one, cuz that would be creepy). Nonnie says: June 26, 2013 at 11:28 pm Avocado, bacon and cream cheese omelette, rye toast, fruit. But my husband has to order pancakes, so I can have a few bites. (Sweet and savoury can’t be beat!) MLD, I too am a great fan of cold pizza! I taught all my children the joy of cold pizza in the morning. All our spouses think we are crazy. PP Vet says: June 27, 2013 at 4:57 am Nice to see omelettes finally show up in the comments. IHOP Denver feeds two. Breakfast burrito, yes. With green chile. Cold pizza works, too. Kevin H says: June 27, 2013 at 5:49 am Hands down best breakfast is at the Shady Maple Smorgasbord in Lancaster County, PA. The place is huge, a complex in and of itself. And the spread is just as huge. And even though the selection quantity is large, they still maintain the quality at the same time. Eggs and omeletes fresh to order, pancakes and waffles with all kinds of fruits and flavors, sausage, bacon, scrapple, all kinds of pastries, home fries, hash browns, biscuits, cereal, etc., etc., etc. I think they even have grits at this yankee restaurant. Man, you eat breakfast there, you don’t need to eat the rest of the day. Kevin H says: June 27, 2013 at 5:52 am At Michael’s #10, I ate at the Frontier restaurant earlier this year during my first and only ever trip to Albuquerque. Quite a cool place. Didn’t have breakfast though as we were there for dinner. If I remember right, I had enchiladas with some green chile stew. The food was good. Josh the Baptist says: June 27, 2013 at 6:25 am Cracker Barrel – Uncle Hershel’s Favorites. My, my, my. Shaun Sells says: June 27, 2013 at 7:05 am I recently started a diet and have lost 17 pounds, so my favorite breakfast is off limits at this time. However, when I am able I like scrambled bratwurst mustard, scrambled eggs and hash browns with salsa or Tapatio, and an icy coca-cola. And now you know why I needed to lose weight… Ricky Bobby says: June 27, 2013 at 7:38 am Michael, I LOVE Dutch Bros! 4-shot double mocha, or the raspberry mocha, ya buddy! My fav breakfast is my wife’s…she is the Breakfast Queen. Her garlic-potato cakes are the bomb, so are her homemade blueberry and strawberry pancakes. Fav restaurant breakfast is Moon’s Kitchen Cafe in downtown Boise, bar none. Their omelettes, biscuits and gravy and pancakes are off the charts. jamesk says: June 27, 2013 at 8:05 am Chorrizo, egg, cheese and bacon burrito; fries with cheese with avocado sauce; extra large sweet tea! jamesk says: June 27, 2013 at 8:10 am Oh, and the cheese must be monterey jack! Dude says: June 27, 2013 at 8:15 am When it comes to breakfast moms is the place to be. Bob says: June 27, 2013 at 8:56 am OK I’m the odd ball here. I never liked traditional breakfast food at all (although bacon on anything tastes good, but I have sworn bacon off). My favorite breakfast is a big bowl of real oatmeal (not that instant stuff), filled with raisins, dried cranberries, cherries and some ground flax mixed in. Keeps me going later in the day. Now did someone mention a medium rare steak grilled to perfection? That is good any time of the day. Captain Kevin says: June 27, 2013 at 10:26 am Bob: “Keeps me going later in the day.” With all that fruit and fiber, I’ll bet it does. 😉 Crowned1 says: June 27, 2013 at 11:25 am What are the rules? If you have to buy junk food: Sausage McMuffin – McD’s & White chocolate mocha from SBux If we are allowed to cook: My bagel breakfast sandwich is delectable with a nice old fashioned cup of Joe from the Keurig. Xenia says: June 27, 2013 at 12:22 pm If I was going to throw caution to the wind and eat what I think is the most delish it would be three fried eggs, sunny-side up, chicken-fried steak w/ all that sausage-y gravy, cheese grits and a few English muffins w/ butter and raspberry jam. Becky says: June 27, 2013 at 1:45 pm Big Dill Eggs and Dana D’s Vanilla Blast! From The Walnut Cafe in Boulder CO. I like the granola pancakes at Cracker Barrel. I don’t know Cracker Barrel in CO is. Starbucks Mocha non fat with whip. Sbux Mocha anything. Sbux caramel machiatto ICED. A mocha and fresh baked chocolate croissant from New Moon Bakery in Nederland CO. French toast is always super yummy. I like a touch of Vanilla with my french toast. Oh and my Pop overs with Nutella. Derek Thornton says: June 27, 2013 at 2:57 pm Crowned 1’s #35. When I am out and eat bfast, the sausage egg and cheese Mcmuffin is the best! Gary says: June 27, 2013 at 3:18 pm The ultimate breakfast is what I serve once a year at Patrick’s Point state park- scrambled eggs with cheese and salsa, smoked bacon, pan fried toast with both sides buttered, coffee with a Dove dark chocolate square and honey, with a side of Agates. Oj is optional. Enjoyed by an Alder fire while birds sing and the wind whips through the tree tops. erunner says: June 27, 2013 at 5:08 pm Anne @ 6 “Right there with you, E. As a result I feel better, have more energy at 60 than I did at 50. Know I may not live any longer, but may be able to do for myself longer w/o having to depend on others for my care. Off of statins, no longer pre-diabetic and off other meds too which more than helps cover the cost of all those yummy veggies :mrgreen:” Good for you Anne. Lord willing if I progress I can come off a few meds. I’m feeling much better since I began 6-7 months ago. The test will be keeping off the weight. But reading through this thread is stumbling me!!! 🙂 Muff Potter says: June 27, 2013 at 5:59 pm Fried potatoes, onions & pork sausage, with eggs over easy on top. Wisconsin style. Solomon Rodriguez says: June 27, 2013 at 6:00 pm Green Monster Energy Drink with a Blueberry muffin, get it twice a week, the combination is delicious Anne says: June 27, 2013 at 6:37 pm @ 40 But reading through this thread is stumbling me!!! Me too 😀 Captain Kevin says: June 27, 2013 at 9:14 pm Forgot to mention the Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes at Wildflower Bread Company. I pour hot maple syrup on half, and put the warm blueberry compote on the other half. Lord have mercy! peggy says: June 27, 2013 at 9:18 pm Oh, I think I should have said that the banana bread french toast with cinnamon apple compote and whipped cream. Illy coffee (or an Illy coffee porter if that is your poison) and a big side of bacon. I have this every couple of weeks at work. yeah I work in a great place. Linnea says: June 28, 2013 at 7:59 am I’m late to the party, but here it is….Michael’s right- Frontier breakfast burrito, smothered in their chile and a warm cinnamon roll served amongst a museum of SW artwork is wonderful. At least you’d die happy there! The coffee, however, lacks substance, which leads me to the next point. Whiting Brothers French Roast coffee, ground for French Press, with half and half, along with a homemade omelette, onions and bell peppers browned, with a tad of feta cheese and a homemade whole wheat blueberry muffin. Pretty good stuff… Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.
