Alternative Breakfast Foods

At 7am this morning, I stopped off at Kewpee's for a double cheeseburger to go. I do this for breakfast once a week. Left over pizza is considered a breakfast food in our house. What are your alternative breakfast foods?

    My alternative to regular breakfast items is soup. I usually have a bowl of homemade or progresso for breakfast in my office.

    I, too, love hamburgers for breakfast. There's a little local place here in Round Rock, Little Red Barn, that has a very welcoming sign above the counter:

    "Want a Burger for Breakfast? You Got It!"

    Pretty much anything in the fridge is fair game for me for breakfast !!

    I really like cold leftover fried chicken, fried fish, pizza, hamburgers, bologna (any lunch meat for that matter).

    A warm slice of apple pie is virtually a morning pastry (although I, too, love that leftover pizza, cold from the 'fridge).

    The New hampshire grandfather of a kid I grew up with had a slice of hot apple pie with cheddar, topped with creamed tripe, for breakfast every day of his adult life

    Fried rice , also most leftovers. Two of my favorites, alternate only if you're non-Asian, are congee or Pho.

    Just about any leftover will do, cold porkchop or steak, eggrolls from carryout, cold pizza. For many years I ate a salad with a little sprinkle of cheese and olives at my desk at work at 7am.

    I love cold pizza for breakfast, as well as Tacos, cold fajitas, or just about anything.

    The best alternative : Bloody Marys in Vegas what a way to start the day!

    So happy to read of all your various alternative breakfast foods. For years I've felt like a fifth wheel because I like tuna salad, cold pizza, leftover cold veggies, etc., for breakfast. Not being a truly "egg" person nor pancake lover, I've always opted for strange things. Now I don't feel that they are so strange.

    Since being on the South Beach diet though, I have become creative with Eggbeaters, adding my strange items to the Eggbeaters, creating some really interesting omelet type meals.

    Thanks for making me feel "normal."

    Might be boring, but I usually eat chicken salad, tuna salad or egg salad for breakfast. There's nothing wrong with the occasional slice or two of cold pizza, though!

    Me too OC! I also like leftover pizza, but prefer it reheated [|)] I bet crab-cakes would be good for breakfast too

    I am game for most anything, a lot of which is listed here. One that wasn't is chili. Used to be one of my favorites when I needed a little help getting over the night before, cure ya or kill ya.

    I agree with LoneStar on the Bloody Mary, I also like to eat Pho for breakfast too, its so filling, warm, tasty and for some reason the smell of cilantro in the morning gets me going. I rarely have leftovers because my husband and his bandmates demolish anything i cook or bring home. They dont touch the "special" drawer in the fridge or else i would turn into a screaming whip wielding banshee and flog them.

    I don't eat very soon after waking up, so anything is fine for the first meal of the day. Today's breakfast was hot and sour soup carried home last night from my friend's restaurant.

    I sometimes love traditional breakfast food for the dinner meal. Growing up, our family did this once every week or so.

    I eat whatever I bring for lunch by 9:30a. Eating at lunch time just makes me sleepy. Also if I save my "lunch" for lunch it'll still be "with me" at the end of my work day and I won't want to cook supper...nothing will sound appetizing. It rates right up there with grocery shopping on a full stomach. I know you shouldn't shop while hungry but at least there will be food in the house.

    I am a big fan (in both senses) of Cuban-Dominican breakfasts, from a cafe con leche and a Cuban Sandwich to the full dominican presentation. The Full Domi, in my limited experience, includes a starch--yuca, mangu (mashed green plantains) or guineos (boiled green bananas)--plus accompaniments of chorizo, fried salami, fried eggs, or fried cheese. My current favorite is guineos with salami and cheese. Mofongo, a cuban dish of mashed green plantains with pork rinds in a tomato sauce, I haven't had in a while, but always liked.

    Strangely, though, most of the people at the Dominican restaurant I like in Washington Heights aren't eating even traditional Caribbean breakfast foods. Salads, chicken, pork chops, etc. seem to be the choice for most people, which I find liberating, as traditional breakfast food tires quickly for me.

    Or perhaps the breakfast choices aren't so strange:

    "'Dominicans will eat ANYTHING for breakfast' observed a friend from a European country which shall remain nameless, to protect the guilty. He was watching his Dominican wife tuck into a bowl of soup at the breakfast table." www.dominicancooking.com/archives/articles/51.htm.

    I have also had chilaquiles for breakfast in Mexico--kind of a tortilla and chile verde casserole--and loved it.

    Kasha and eggs from Polish/Ukranian places are brilliant as well.

    I love a cafe con leche and plaintains with some Cuban toast. That's a once in a while treat. Everyone in my family has a sweet tooth so it seems pretty normal to have pie,cake,or cookies. If I'm really throwing in the towel on the diet ,I'll have either rice pudding or flan. Most days it's grapefruit,no-fat yogurt and a banana.
