Best breakfast meat Mon, 03/6/06 8:06 PM (permalink)
The current roadfood poll asks for a vote on this subject. I voted for bacon because steak wasn't an option. Out here in the midwest we are not offered pork roll or scrapple (frankly I don't even know what pork roll is). But while we may be deprived, we know that steak and eggs is a great morning combination.

    Pork roll is ham -- super SUPER salted.

    I voted for sausage -- only because kielbasa wasn't an option.

      I remember a scene in the old movie, Electric Horseman. Redford was a rodeo cowboy not a sheep herder) and the spokesman for a breakfast cereal named something like, "Cowboy Breakfast".

      He was doing a press interview, and a lady (it may have been Jane Fonda's character)asked him if he really ate Cowboy Breakfast for breakfast.

      He replied with something like, "No, ma'am, I eat steak and eggs for breakfast. I eat Cowboy Breakfast for lunch."

        Italian sausage or hot links; I'd have to flip a coin.

          I can't understand what is wrong with so many people here. There is nothing other than corned beef hash. Well, maybe clam hash.

              Here's one picked off the internet:

              Clam Hash
              Ingredients
              5 tablespoons butter
              2 cups (about) minced or ground clams
              2 cups (about) finely chopped peeled potatoes
              1/2 cup minced scallions, green and white parts, or onion
              1 teaspoon minced garlic
              salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
              4 poached or soft-boiled eggs (optional)


              Instructions
              Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a 12-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat. Mix together the clams, potatoes, scallions, and garlic; when the butter foam subsides, spread the mixture in the pan and flatten with a spatula. Lower the heat, season with salt and pepper, and cook slowly until browned on the bottom, about 20 minutes (check by lifting a corner with a spatula).

              Slide the cake onto a plate, top with another plate, and invert. Melt another 2 tablespoons butter in the pan and, when it melts, return the cake to the pan. Cook until browned. Spread with the remaining tablespoon of butter and serve, with or without poached eggs.

              Tenderized conch or minced shucked oysters can be substituted for the clams.

              Yield: 4 servings

                I prefer patty sausage with my eggs. However, while certainly not meat, an accompaniment of breaded fried calamari to my eggs in Monterey, circa, oh, about '78, is still memorable.

                  Bear, that was a long time ago. Are you sure it wasn't a Hangtown Fry with breaded fried oysters,eggs,bacon scrambled up.

                    I would choose chewy bacon packed with flavor although I do enjoy breakfast sausage too.

                      Personally , I like all of them but nothing smells better than bacon being fried crisp, coffee and toast.

                      I did buy a smoked bacon not too long ago. I fried it and it really stunk up the house. No more of that!!!

                                Hello All,
                                It's a toss up for me...bacon, because I love the taste and love making it for my daughter,
                                (she'll eat my bacon or scrambled eggs, that's about all she'll eat that I make, well, she
                                loves my french fries, but that's all)..
                                or country ham, because salty country ham wakes us my senses and tastes so good.
                                But I rarely eat breakfast, so these treats have become a special tradition when I do eat it.
                                Take Care,
                                Fieldthistle

                                    I'm with you. A nice corned beef hash is a fine thing in the morning.. although some double smoked bacon can make me smile.. or chicken fried steak...

                                      I know its not a meat, but here in Monterey on the coast, we have deep fried squid with our eggs all the time. In fact, squid, and eggs over easy, is my traditional Christmas morning breakfast. Tastes great. The smell is a little rough on the kids though.

                                        With eggs, I like bacon, but only if it's crisp. With pancakes, I like link sausage.

                                            I love a high quality fried sirloin hamburger sizzling hot with fried eggs and hashbrowns, with very hot italian roast coffee to wash it down. Also good toast buttered then slathered with Marmite (The Black Gold).

                                                in order...

                                                country ham
                                                city ham
                                                crisp bacon
                                                patty sausage
                                                link sausage
                                                sirloin steak (actually the favorite, but good steak and eggs are hard to find...much easier to find pork breakfast meats than beef.)

                                                  Above, I note my memorable breakfast of squid and eggs several decades ago on Cannery Row. It was in a large building with many stores in an airy restaurant without walls. The huge building was originally an old cannery. Great breakfast!

                                                        I did buy a smoked bacon not too long ago. I fried it and it really stunk up the house. No more of that!!!

                                                        What brand of bacon do you usually buy? I guess I am really dumb on the subject of bacon.............I thought that any bacon that one bought in supermarkets was smoked!

                                                            I voted for Bacon, as the choice looked good to me. I like CFS and Eggs and Link or Patti Sausage for breakfast too.

                                                            But Bacon is the Prime Choice. Here is an example of a small side of bacon and a few Link-Sausages with an order of Biscuits and gravy at the Brown Hotel in Louisville taken a few weeks ago. I passed on the eggs that morning....Gotta watch that Cholesterol Count !!



                                                            P S I won't touch Pork Roll, just for the nick-name it gained during my service days. I love S-O-S, but can't even think about eating "DONKEY DI*K!"
