Breakfast - what's your preference?

I could do it as a poll but I'd rather get some details in the comments if anyone is game. :)

What do you eat most often for breakfast and is there any particular reason you eat that?

For me, I usually have some form of eggs for breakfast, be it a breakfast burrito (Good Food Made Simple makes yummy frozen ones) or I pick up some form of egg white, sometimes with turkey sandwich on a roll from the local deli. Or if I'm not completely lazy, I'll do a fried (with cooking spray) or poached egg on good multigrain toast or on rice with a splash of soy sauce. If I don't have something with protein in it, it's not more than an hour that I'm hungry again. So cereal doesn't really work for me. Nor do sugary pastries because aside from the protein, I also prefer something savory. I will on the weekends have a not-overly-sweet biscotti and some coffee early and then later in the morning make a more proper breakfast. I'll also do the ol' hipster "avocado toast" now and then. But it has to be a perfectly ripe avocado and some quality toast.

If I made anyone hungry there, apologies! I also wouldn't mind some new ideas. I've thought about some vegan options but I just can't seem to get into the tofu scramble.

Ohh, I've actually never tried the avocado toast thing! Now that I have a real-person review of it, I may give it a whirl!

I eat the same. Thing. Every single day for breakfast. *lol* 2 eggs, over easy, fried in butter, with two whole wheat toasts, slathered in butter. I'm skinny AF and need the butter fats, and it also makes your hair pretty :> and the eggs are the much-needed protein I crave early in the morning! I almost never change it up, because I feel so good after eating this meal at that time (between 7 and 9, depending on when I wake). I will almost always have a fruit cup afterward (cherries, pineapple and peaches in a light syrup...and then I drink all the leftover syrup *lol*). I might soft-scramble the eggs on a rare day, but I love over easy.
*mimes dipping into eggs*

That breakfast sounds absolutely delicious. I love butter more than I even love bacon

When my guy is here you can add slow-fried bologna (all beef) and homemade breakfast potatoes to that ;)

LOL hey, at least you’re not picky!

When I’m hungover - which I will be tomorrow because I’m presently nicely drunk, I have dippy egg with marmite soldiers and asparagus and kale. Combined with drinks of restorative tea.

I hope that you’re not too hung over. But enjoy the dippy egg Either way!

I make homemade waffles I have my own waffle iron, that way I can make them however I want. Heck, I've even made grilled cheese sandwiches using low carb whole wheat or honey wheat bread and lowfat super sharp Cheddar as well as pizza waffles with the waffle iron!

I also make puff pancakes, aka Dutch babies. You can tailor them however you desire.

If you like spicy stuff, purchase a container of gochujang, a Korean chili garlic paste, and make vegetarian chicken cutlets and vegetarian chicken tenders with the sauce used for bibimbap a little dab'll do ya, trust me. You can use the sauce on eggs, too. Gochujang is better than sracha(sp?) imho.

I was wondering about getting a mini waffle iron, but now that I have to limit indulgences, I’d better think hard.

Now you’re speaking my language! I loooooove gochujang! My favorite version is the Mother In Law’s sesame flavored one. Right now I’m roasting cubes of seasoned sweet potato and I bought some sautéed greens so that I can make impromptu Buddha bowls/bibimbap this week. I also picked up a bag of frozen sautéed mushrooms and I have the Trader Joe’s frozen roasted corn too. Plenty of options to mix it up this week!

I used some of the gochujang to make an impromptu pasta "sauce" terrific on both rotini and spaghetti imho. The stuff can mask the funky taste of low-carb pasta diabetes sucks Flint,
Michigan tap water

I also used it with vegetarian gyro "meat". :)

The Mother In Law brand is on sale at Whole Foods this week. I picked up an extra jar of my favorite flavor.

Yeah, I don't blame you for doing what you can to spice things up. They flushed hydrants this week again and things taste weird but not anywhere in the ballpark of Flint water.

Veggie gyro meat? Do tell! I've not heard of this one.

I went in my local Whole Foods store and tried to find gochujang. They haven't heard of Mother in Law brand and they've stopped selling all of the gochujang flavoured items they had carried except for sweet chili noodle bowls gotta stock up on them.

Luckily for me, the "convenience store" on campus sells the condiment beside the place that makes sushi to order. I might stock up on it next time I have the funds.

eta: Found the vegetarian gyro "meat" at Whole Foods in the refrigerated section right next to the "Cowgirl" 'steaks' (made by the same company.) Does that help you any?

Boy, your local WF isn't up on the trend. Korean food, especially gochujang is HUGE right now. Dopes.

Is this the gyro "meat"? I haven't seen it but I could look for it

I live in Milwaukee. Does that give you an idea of how "behind the trends" it is?

Concerning the veggie gyro "meat": THAT'S IT! I just picked up a package of it along with a sweet chili noodle bowl lunch tomorrow. I might buy something this weekend in the vegetarian "turkey" stuff they have something to eat during American Thanksgiving while the furred purrson plural have the real item without bones...

I don’t really have a regular breakfast. For years I didn’t eat breakfast at all. Then when all the reports said you need breakfast and my husband asked if I’d at least sit with him in the morning when he eats I started eating it. Eggs are easy and tasty as are bagels with cream cheese and sliced tomato. I guess they would be my easy option. I definitely prefer savory over sweet. I’m not into pancakes or waffles, except on rare occasions. I love veggie frittatas or any type of Mexican scramble. Breakfast potatoes in any form are good too. I do like tofu scramble but don’t make it often. Oh another easy one, English muffin, smashed avocado, sliced hard boiled egg, with sriracha. Yum!

Another savory breakfast person!

I was thinking I need to hard boil some eggs. Some mornings, even though I'm typically a regular breakfast eater, I'm not all that hungry but I eat anyway. If I got more into the habit of just having a biscotti and coffee and then mid-morning having an egg for the protein hit, that might help the diet.
