Breakfast around the world - Thu, 10/13/05 3:54 PM

Hello everyone. It is my first time to post here though I have been reading other people's for a while.
I am just curious about the kinds of breakfasts that are being serve in different parts of the world. When I (used to) eat breakfast, my mom will simply pan-fry up some overnight cold rice with oil, salt and pepper. (The rice has to be overnight and cold before frying, otherwise it won't taste right). That's how my family does it and I am sure a lot of Asian families do that too.
My favourite, however, it's "the works". You know, bacon (I gave up on my vegetarianism for that!!), scrambled eggs, hash brown, toast with jam, and maybe some fruit. Too bad it's 4 in the afternoon now or I will go get some at the mom and pop's down the street. So what do you eat for breakfast (culturally)?

During the week, or when in a hurry...toast or cereal with (good) coffee.

During the weekend...egg white sandwiches on a roll (lots of spices and olive oil) or Italian Toast and very good (imported, strong) coffee.

If I'm going out, I'm about 50% omelets, 50% sweets (french toast/pancakes)---something I don't make at home.

Also, leftovers I've eaten for breakfast---cold pizza, ice cream cake, pie or birthday cake.

B'fast...AHHH

European is so much like an American lunch buffet but w/ eggs added.

Japanese...truely my fav at the big hotels, of course it costs $40, and another glass of oj is $7 but what the hey.

And natto...just to give the day a good start.

I'm a big fan of Middle Eastern breakfast - cheeses, yogurt - the really thick, plain variety - salad, olives, fresh fruit or juice and great strong coffee. Sometimes smoked fish or herring in cream sauce! I'm not a sweet eater, especially in the AM, so this really gets me going.

Otherwise I'm all for the old-fashioned Southern spread with grits - cheese and garlic 'natch - sausage gravy and good biscuits. Coffee and the NY Times - heavenly!

Hello All,
I rarely eat breakfast, never did even when I was a kid. But when I do have breakfast, usually in the winter on a weekend, I love scrambled eggs, toast, bacon, and orange juice. If not that, chipped-beef gravy with a lot of pepper over white bread and a Dr. Pepper.
When I eat, I like to eat slowly, and on workdays I'm always running late, so I pass it by. I wish I was more disciplined to enjoy a good breakfast.
Question: do you eat breakfast by yourself or with your family?
Take Care,
Fieldthistle

After twelve years w/ a Japanese company I tend to eat b'fasts that most Americans wouldn't touch. Our family really only eats b'fast together on Sunday mornings. Waffles, bacon and pancakes are the standard. I eat my b'fast off to the side since it does have an odor offensive to most western noses. Natto is the stinky element. Ume close behind.

Breakfast in France! Croissants, broiche, baguette....all served with cheese and butter and if it was at my neighbor's house (farmers) the cheese and butter were made at the farm. Coffee served in bowls with hot milk and sugar. Croissant and coffee on the Champs Elysees is not to shabby either!

Jamaican breakfasts----wonderful!! lets see-there is "bun and cheese"--the bun being somwhat like a large-burger bun sized cookie that is a cross between a molasses cookie and gingerbread--it is split and filled with a slice of english chedder type cheese that comes in a can--then there is toasted hard dough bread!!!(i'd kill for a loaf right now!!--the BEST white bread i ever ate!!!)--toasted and topped with fried ripe plantain---and plantain porridge-grated plantain and coconut milk cooked nice and thick and mixed with sweetened condenced milk---and of course Coco Tea!!!---which is the local version of hot choclate---i used to get my raw chocolate in "logs" about 6 inches long from a lady in the small village i lived in---Mrs McIntosh--who i learned later on was the mother of reggae star Peter Tosh--neat lady! If it wasnt coco tea it was coffee--which i bought from another lady neigbor--she grew it in the yard and roasted it in a pan over an open fire in the yard--FABULOUS coffee!!! ands then of course--dessert!!! The local ice cream vendor would start wondering around town with his small cooler early---often coming by after breakfast--great flavors too--although only one at a time---my favorite was grapenut which for some reason was very popular---Janie liked the mango!!!--and of course there is ALWAYS fresh fruit in Jamaica of one kind or another---mangos-nesberry!!!!-ginnep!!!and green coconuts!!!!!!

When I was a kid, my Filipina mother would often fry cold rice in the mornings too...hers would be very VERY garlicky, with golden bits of fried garlic, an egg scrambled in, and seasoned with soy sauce and lots of black pepper. She put in MSG, I recall (but I detest that stuff!)

I love Israeli breakfasts with their thick sour cream and jam concoctions, shakshouka eggs in peppery tomato sause.

I also adore a good English or Scot's breakfast with black pudding, eggs, broiled tomatoes.

The British Isle breakfast with black pudding and broiled tomatoes didn't do much for me. The rest was OK. Bacon was great. Realized pancakes were practically unknown there.

Had some great breakfasts in Cochabamba, Bolivia. The Diplomat Hotel had a buffet of several fruits and at least 5 different fruit juices every morning. Down the street, Dumbo's had a full line up of breakfasts. The only strange thing was the potatoes were generally what we think of as French fries but they were cold. They served Empanadas and Saltenas. The can best be described as small pastie like servings a little smaller than your fist. Inside were meats, potatoes and vegetables. The ones we had also had a small hard boiled quail egg inside.

But the best thing of all was the price. I had the Americanos one day that consisted of coffee, juice, 2 eggs, bacon, potatoes, toast and a pastry all for $1.75.

The non hot or cold cereal breakfasts served here at Casa Verde are usually a weekend occurance. They are usually:

1. Chorizo and scrambled eggs with pico de gallo, corn tortillas, bananas in coconut cream, and hot champurrado to drink

2. Blueberry waffles, mushroom or chili scramble, "extra hot and spicy" breakfast sausages, coffee and juice

***********************BREAKFAST IN MY NEXT LIFE************************
In my next life I plan to eat really big breakfasts...breakfasts that some restaurants euphemistically call "The Heart Attacker" or the "The Super Big Artery Clogger" or the "For Sure They'll Carry You Out On a Stretcher Delight."

There will be Country Style Eggs (at least 3), a few patty sausages (my favorite) as well as a few links, just to show me what I'm missin'; some biscuits, with gravy of course; a few rashers of bacon, simply because nothing else comes in rashers; two good sized waffles, with just real fresh butter and confectioners sugar on them; two thick slices of toasted pumpernickel bread with melted butter on them; a banana nut muffin (a big one that looks like a mushroom) and oh yes, a really great cup of coffee...the kind of coffee that you remark about: "Boy...this is good coffee."

And that's my plan. And, just to show I'm in earnest, after I lose about 10 more lbs. I'll practice for that next life by having that breakfast in this life...hopefully at the Hancock Hotel, Hancock, Vermont.

Hi, all! Happy to have found this intriguing forum. I work for a firm that designs children's museums, and we're currently working on an exhibit about the importance of breakfast. We're trying to help kids and parents realize there are many more options for breakfast than the "usual suspects" of the American table. Any breakfast experiences/options from other cultures that you can share are much appreciated. Thanks!

culturally i am a full on american, we just had cereal or toast or both. special days bacon and eggs ( usually scrambled)
during college it was a big deal to go out to breakfast after partying and get the big breatfasts with eggs, bacon sausage pancakes hashbrowns etc.. etc..
i love that now and at least once a week i make a hashbrown or pancake breakfast with eggs and usually bacon but some times sausage.
two " foreign" breakfasts ive really enjoyed are the loco moco in hawaii, the eggs and hamburger patties oeer sticky rice with gravy. yum
and i loved breakfast in the little vilages in mexico.. if we went out(restaurant) they'd have eggs and bacon and potatoes , but always served with so yummy refried beans and of course tortilla and chihlipeppers. yum. when we ate at our little hut we'd eat avocado and hardboiled egg and these rolls called bolillos. oh so goood.

I like to make scrambled eggs, sausage or bacon, and hashbrowns, and pita bread. Then I slide it all into the pita and go to town.

Having spent much time in Germany, I learned to appreciate their breakfast althought it was totally different.

Mostly bread, cheese, fish, cold cuts and that was about all.

I always enjoy a Diet Coke. Never could they understand that I wanted that staple for breakfast.

I learned to enjoy bread, butter, jams and jellies along with some cold cuts with my Diet Coke which I had a hard time obtaining.

I realy like smoked salmon in the morning.
On a bagel; under an egg (w/ or w/o hollandaise); plain or w/capers; on top of a hard piece of bread; wrapped around a piece of gently steamed asparagus...

It's good, and I don't do it nearly enough.

But sometimes, a piece of toast cut into triangles with strawberry jam and a strong cup of coffee works well too.

Diet coke is a staple. Before breakfast and after breakfast. Even when I'm brewing coffee, I'll kill a glass of diet coke while it's brewing.

Gimme a cup of strong black coffee, a slice of sharp cheese and some english toasting bread, toasted of course.
Barring that, If I'm lucky enough to find myself back in South Texas on a Sunday morning, then a trip to my local barbacoa/homemade tortilla shack, {slow cooked beef cheek meat}. Put the barbacoa on fresh, warm corn tortillas, with some diced onion, cilantro, salt and lime, chase with ice cold orange juice and watch the sun come up on South Padre Island and cast your line into the surf and hope for some black drum or sheepshead for lunch.

Dutch breakfasts are so good and filling. The breakfasts included in your hotel stay often preclude the need for a midday meal if you're on a budget. I stayed at the Hotel Cok in Amsterdam when I was participating in a 4 week "exchange" program in the Netherlands. Included in the roomrate was this huge breakfast with all sorts of breads (especially loved the thick dark brown bread and the bread with bits of fruit in it), eggs any way you wanted them, great whopping pancakes, thick slabs of bacon, and delicious coffee. Juice was available as well. At the end of the beverage counter in the breakfast room was a beautiful delft blue and white ceramic urn with a spigot, which I assumed held orange juice. Instead, I found that it held something that looked like apple juice. When I brought the glass closer to my nose, I discovered that it was, in fact, beer. One of my Dutch advisors on this trip later told me that beer is an integral part of dining in the Netherlands and is not uncommonly imbibed with breakfast. At any rate, I went back for the orange juice, instead.

These days, in the interest of my arteries, and to save calories for more interesting stuff, I typically have one hard boiled egg for breakfast and then a handful of unsalted almonds at 10:00 a.m. Still, I'd have to have some of that dark bread with butter if I was back in Amsterdam.

I just read through these and they all sound good; really! I've a friend whose Irish pub serves that Irish breakfast on Sundays. We go every year to Jamaica so ackee 'n saltfish is something I look forward to along with bun 'n cheese, callalo and fresh OJ. In town I'll hit a "soul food" restaurant for country ham, grits and biscuits something I look forward to on our yearly trip to Memphis, Helena and Clarksdale. I do believe pizza never tastes as good as it does cold the next morning (though I'll do a Diet Pepsi, thank you). I never fried leftover rice but I enjoy cold Asian foods the next morning immensely. A trip to Chicago or St. Louis will find us scarfing down White Castles cheeseburgers for breakfast preferrable Jalapeño cheese. Montreal found us with my all-time favorite croissant filled with a freshly fried egg and cheese. Mexican chorizo or even Saturday menudo rocks. A reall good rye or pumpernickle toasted is sublime as is toasted sourdough. When I golfed, a favorite course was run by two Italian fellows who served Italian sausage and peppers with toasted Italian bread along with the eggs for breakfast which beats most bacon or sausge. This morning I made when my mom used to call eggs in the nest; buttered, pan fried bread slices with an egg fried in the center. I guess it's all good. I even enjoyed the pork and beans an English run resort once served us.

Does anyone know what Eggs, Country Style, are? There was a grill man here at a diner that always made them for me. But then the diner was bought by a firm in Germany and shipped there. The former owner/grill man moved away. I've never found a satisfactory breakfast place in this area since.

I'm not exactly sure of the procedure. That's what he called them...Country Style. I usually got it with hash browns and link sausage, split, and toasted rye bread with butter.

It appeared that he began by cooking them sunny side up, and when they got a bit firm, he would flip them over, and with the edge of the spatula he would break the yolk, but without mixing the yellow with the white, and if so, only slightly.

No matter what diner or eatery I've been to since, no one seems capable of mimicing this dish, or, they don't want to, or, don't understand, or have no patience with the fickle customer. It seems that no one else even calls it Country Style. Any opinions? Can you help a Roadfooder out here?

I could have sworn I posted an response yesterday in which I said your description sounds like eggs cooked "over-hard," as opposed to over-easy or over-medium.

Mr. Hoffman,
Indeed I read your response. I guess, like Jack Dempsey's Restaurant, it's gone.

In any case, nope, not quite over hard...otherwise it would be easy enough to order.

The white mixes with the yellow, yet only somewhat, both halves sort of keeping their own integrity. And, I really got to like it that way.

I'm not dexterous enough with the spatula to duplicate it. Maybe I dreamt it.

Mr. Hoffman,
Nope, correction. I know what it was. I posted it here originally, and then, in another forum, I said I was re-posting there, hoping it would be a more suitable place to find an answer.
I didn't dream it.

Maybe I also didn't dream I had a new Ferrari F430 Spyder, red. Hold on, I'm going to check the driveway.

I have been cooking eggs in a diner in Indiana most my life.. and I am 44 . I have not heard of country style... though what you are talking about sounds like over medium well to me.

Janicks,
If I ever make it to Nick's Kitchen for that famous Breaded Fried Tenderloin Sandwich, I will make it a point to also have breakfast, at which point I will try the eggs over medium well...just to see if that's it.

Hello everyone. It is my first time to post here though I have been reading other people's for a while.
I am just curious about the kinds of breakfasts that are being serve in different parts of the world.


I'm a big fan of breakfast in Hawaii!

I lived in Hawaii for some time and they serve up spicey Portuguese sausage, rice and eggs (even McDonald's offers it w/ breakfast!). Also Hawaiians LOVE Spam (and so do I...)

But the really unique breakfast item in Hawaii is a dish called Loco Moco. Loco Moco is a lip smacking taste temptation, consisting of a heap of white rice topped with a juicy hamburger patty and a sunnyside-up egg, then smothered in brown gravy. Just about every breakfast place in the islands has it on the menu. Sometimes the hamburger is mixed with country gravy, or sometimes they use shredded pork, teriyaki beef, or shrimp, but usually it's made the traditional way (my favorite). Try it with some Portuguese sausage on the side! I'm getting all rumbly grumbly just thinking about it!

We just returned from the Treasure Beach area in Jamaica. It's an unspoiled fishing village that has discovered low impact tourism. One of our favorite breakfast places is a place called The Heart of Love Bakery. Featuring french style baguettes, our favorite is an omelet filled with cheese, some sliced scotch bonnet peppers, onions and callaloo which is similar to spinach. After starting out with fresh squeezed orange juice, a cup of Blue Mountain coffee, a few slices of that french bread, some home guava jelly and some fresh sliced papaya, watermelon, banana, this omelet was fit for a king.

Screenbear,
Late answer but that's exactly how I make my eggs at home. No restaurant would understand eggs like that. I usually use bacon or sausage grease or olive oil, get the grease real hot so you get lacy edges, break egg into pan, let white set, break yolk with edge of spatula and spread it a bit but do not mix, spinkle with pepper, flip and cook through. Sometimes I smash them down after flipping.

This never had a name, but my grandmother used to cook them this way for me. My dad who like pokey yokes (runny bleech!) used to call them "shoe leather eggs." I don't think they're tough at all and they are a nice change for people who must have their eggs cooked through.

I'm not too picky..hehe.

Scrambled eggs with salsa and cheddar cheese, breakfast burritos of every kind.. a nice bowl of gazpacho with a side of garlic toast. I haven't actually had that last one yet, but it's been bugging me for a while and I may yet get it made.

I almost OD'd on omelets and egg scrambles when I went on Atkins. That lasted about a year, and I lost a good deal of weight.

A good egg roll, or a handful of tiny potstickers can also be good, for when I'm feeling like a change.

And yep, cold pizza, cold chicken.. or a breakfast biscuit (made at home).

Sounds correct. Any chance you'll be opening a diner in NJ?

Only if New Jersey develops a Mediterranian climate. I almost froze to death during basic training in Ft. Dix. 40 below and freezing rain -- bbbbbrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

I think we should call them "frizzled eggs." That's a good word that's just not used anymore. Makes me think of fry on high heat.

Ok, there are limits to what I'll eat. I eat beef tongue. I find it one of my favorite foods.

But brains? C'mon.

Due to the fact that my former company was based in Germany, I have to travel a lot across the pond and I enjoyed many German Breakfasts. A lot of different kinds of breads, cheese, cold cuts, fish, condiments, strong coffee, tea and jellies.

It really got so that I did not miss American Breakfast although many places advertise "American Breakfast" or at least their version of it.

Yum! My grandmother used to make this. We ate it for supper with biscuits and jam. I never learned to make it and now she is gone. I don't think she used canned brains though - hers were out of a plastic tub.

During a 30 day driving vacation through Europe(France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Amsterdam), we spent 3 nights at the Hotel Uhland in Munich. The buffet breakfast included: razor thin cold cuts, hard rolls, cheese, yogurt, granola, fresh fruit, fresh juice, the finest hard boiled eggs, and good strong coffee. The German buffet breakfasts were my favorite and I made it a point of eating early every morning to assure myself that those great cold cuts would be there. Once the buffet ran out of certain items, they weren't replenished.

Northern China:
Warm soybean milk, sweetened
Long, very greasy “Chinese donuts” for dipping
Flat sesame seeded bread, with sort of dried beef shank inside
Wontons in hot oil sauce
Rice gruel with little pickled things (veggies, little fish, and who knows what else)

I noticed that the person who started this tread only posted once.

Don't eat bkfast like I should--too much coffee--though make bacon and toaster waffles for son each day. Love all the breakfast ideas from other countries. On weekends usually make hubby a bkfast taco with scrambled eggs, cheese, bacon, Cholula in a tortilla, or a quasi-Egg McMuffin--hard cooked egg, Canadian bacon, cheese on English Muffin. My fav, which I have 2 times a year if I'm lucky--Eggs Benedict--am I the only one who likes this rich, heart clogging treat? I also adore grits, though do not get them or make them very often. Anybody remember soft-boiled eggs with toast strips? I will make those for myself every now and then, though must add curry powder with the salt and pepper when eating them.

A good old fashion camping breakfast of fried potatoes, scambled eggs and fried fish.

Also, how about scrapple with maple syrup and eggs.

Or just really good biscuits and sausage gravy with fresh cracked black pepper and maybe a splash of Tabasco.

All with lots of good strong coffee.
