        I understand now. I had never heard that that type of haircut was referred to as a mullet.

            MiamiDon - As you head into Coral Gables and on same side of the street as the former Latin American Cafeteria (what a incredible business they use to have in the 80's - I think at one time it was an Arby's), was another small Cuban place that makes great Cuban Sandwiches, really breakfasts, had that coffee, cane sugar drink, etc. I doubt that one is gone, too. I use to love watching them get the Cuban sandwiches ready for the lunch rush. they'd cook off roast porks, hams, etc.

            Incidently, have you ever been to the Greek Restaurant on Coral Way...Not bad. It is white building with blue signage..I forget the name. Maybe Mykinos? Not sure.

              In N.E. Pa. you go to Tony's Restaurant in Kingston, Pa. Order the "Fat Bastard Breakfast".

              Meatballs, sausage, onions, sweet and hot peppers and cheese omelet with a spoon of sauce over the top and a sprinkle of pecorino. It comes with a side of sausage with cheese, onions, peppers and sauce on top. And of course, Italian toast.

              You can also order the Calabrese potatoes. The best home fries you ever tasted with onions and peppers.

              Now don't make any funny faces until you tried it. This breakfast is addicting.

                  Now Now.

                  How about the "Eggs Benedict Italiano".

                  Two slices of sicilian toast with Capacola, cheese, eggs, onions, sweet and hot peppers and sauce on top.

                  I like the Pizza Fries with this. Home fries with onions, sweet and hot peppers then topped with cheese and sauce.

                    WJ, classic, man. Just classic.

                    Here, Ted is modeling the ever popular "Mullet" style of hair care

                    On display across the nation and it goes by many names such as:

                    Camaro Crash Helmet
                    Canadian Passport
                    Shorty Longback
                    and, my personal favorite,
                    "Business in front, party in the back, dude!"

                    Sorry, I couldn't resist!

                      Looks like Heaven on a plate. My grandmother in western Wisconsin used to make identical "pecan rolls".
                      Where I grew up in Virginia, link sausage or country ham, served with hot biscuits, were mandatory for breakfast.
                      In south-central Pennsylvania, nothing beats scrapple. Don't ask what's in it--just enjoy it.

                        Unfortunately, mullets are all but the official hairstyle of the men here in Pittsburgh. It is like the 80's never left!

                            Seeing as how I'm still an Alabama girl, no matter where I lay my head, I prefer salmon patties, creamed corn, bicuits and sorghum syrup with butter. I do however make a meal out of tomato gravy and biscuits when I'm missing home badly.

                            Tomato gravy is nothing more than reg ol milk gravy with stewed tomatoes in it. Y'all are making it difficult and the beauty of it is, it's not Oil (pref bacon grease), flour, milk, chopped up stewed tomatoes. You can add a little bit of the juice but don't go whole hog, it will thin the gravy too much. Add a lot of pepper and a bit of salt.

                            Came back to add, you can use store bought canned stewed tomatoes if you don't have homemade.

                                Okay iqdiva, why do we eat salmon patties for breakfast? Seems to be such a regional thing but I can't figure it out.

                                I know my mamaw made them a bunch because they were cheap and she had a ton of folks to feed, plus they were easy to put in a lunch pail with the extra biscuits, but why salmon? Tuna or other fish surely don't sound so good for breakfast.

                                Gonna go research that lol

                                    Yeah, that is a "hair-don't" and I used to have one!!

                                    In Central Maine, we used to get finnish coffee bread, made and sold by the Finnish farmers. Man, that was good!! Toasted with butter. Yow.

                                      I'm not sure if I remember the other Cuban cafeteria/sandwich shop. The sugar cane juice beverage is guarapo.

                                        MellowRoast,
                                        It depends on whether or not you like visceral things to eat. It's similar to scrapple and goetta, but more livery. It's made from pork liver and corn meal.
                                        Seriously, I love the stuff, and sometimes eat it right off the loaf (it's already been cooked when you buy it). My favorite way, though, is cut thick and maybe browned just a tad, then put on plain old white bread (locally I would use Luna Bakery's sourdough) with a smear of mayo (Miracle Whip or other "salad-dressingy" products are too sweet and overwhelm (yea, drown out) the livery flavor. It doesn't need such furniture as lettuce or tomato, although Hillbilly and I will probably differ on this one.
                                        If you're sincerely amused enough to try it, let me recommend going to Neese Sausage's website: they're out of Greensboro, North Carolina. They may be able to cold-freight you some liver pudding, liver mush, and/or souse overnight. They also make an extra-sage sausage that sounds like it would be mighty tasty.
                                        Oh -- I almost forgot -- the most familiar way to eat livermush is for breakfast, skillet-browned, with eggs.

                                              I've seen that on the east coast. They call it a sticky bun. In Idaho, a sticky bun is like Cinnabon serves, with the cream cheese frosting and the cinnamon and it's rolled up.

                                                Breakfast taco's at La Reyna on S. First in Austin. This is a memory. I was in Austin last fall and it appears La Reyna has moved into the pleasant memories category. My fave was always eggs and cicharon (sp?)(like pork rinds except fresh). In the day, huevos rancheros tacos were $.50; we used to order 4 or 5 with sweet tea for breakfast.

                                                  Broiled kippers, finnan haddie and kedgeree in England and Scotland. Also often found in places like the Union League Club.

                                                        i've been getting a lot of fried whiting and eggs, or grilled bluefish and eggs around the VA/DC/MD area lately. not sure if its regionally specific, but it hits the spot.

                                                        also big around the chesapeake is eggs benedict with crab cakes instead of the ham/canadian bacon.

                                                            Two best regional breakfasts I ever had:

                                                            1. A sort of heuvos rancheros on fry bread in South Dakota. Fantastic. Best breakfast of my life.

                                                            2. A breakfast pretzel outside Philly - egg, cheese & bacon wrapped and baked in a hunk of pretzel at an Amish stand in a (permanent) farmer's market. Delicious!
