I was reading this thread, just getting ready to add my favorite "alternative" breakfast - leftover birthday cake - when I saw someone beat me to it.

So with this I will see your birthday cake and raise you a scoop of ice cream!

      I'm with Tiki on the room temperature pizza. Some days at work there will be a pizza that was left out over night by mistake and most people won't eat it then. It's funny that the people who are the closest to college age don't have a problem with it and go ahead and eat it. My roommate in school used to leave them out of the fridge on purpose because he liked it room temp the next morning. I guess I just got used to it over the four years.

      One other alternative breakfast food I like is a couple of White Castles. They actually have good breakfast sandwiches there that are served on wheat toast but you can get the hamburgers 24 hours a day if the craving hits.

        As a kid, we used to eat Spam for breakfast, and Spam, as everybody knows, is an alternative to real food.

          In Cincinnati, the White Castle breakfast sandwiches are on the same tiny buns the hamburgers go onto.

            We have those in Columbus too, but they also have ones that come on full size toast and they put a made to order fried egg on them with choice of bacon or sausage and cheese. I think they are by far the best breakfast sandwich you can get from a fast food place. They actually are not too muhc more than the ones on the little buns.

              (not to get too far off topic, but the best FF breakfast in my mind is still the Hardee's biscuits, with my personal favorite being bacon egg and cheese. The biscuits were the one thing hardee's did really well, imho. Alas, there are no Hardee's in Cincinnati anymore.)

                "One non-vision related anomaly that Sacks noted was the universal craving for large quantities of Spam, the canned meat product, by the islanders. Added to the fruit and vegetable native fare it has turned an otherwise healthy, low-fat diet into a high-fat diet with all the attendant medical problems. One theory for the craving for Spam is that it has a porky taste similar to what the natives refer to as "long-pig" or human flesh. The more likely explanation, in light of the long since discontinued practice of cannibalism, is that Spam provides every native islander a daily chance to eat a food, pork, a meat that was once reserved for royalty"

                  anyway, I like grilled cheese for breakfast. Even better (and what isn't?) with bacon or ham.

                  At the hospital where I work, the cafeteria has a Texas Bacon Cheese Grill every Friday morning, which is basically a grilled cheese with bacon and tomato. Try as I might to avoid them, I usually end up getting one. Some people think its weird because it doesn't have egg on it so it's more like a lunch sandwich. But they seem to be pretty popular around here.

                    My theory on the subject, unsubstantiated by any real research, is that essentially all humans have a basic craving for salt and fat, and that Islanders were introduced to salted/corned beef and pork products by the white invaders (or colonists, depending on your take) hundreds of years ago and this proved quite a novelty when contrasted with the existing seafood/produce/some fresh meat diet, and the Islanders subsequently developed a lasting taste for cured fatty meats (in the same way that late 20th-c North Americans developed an insatiable taste for Big Macs, Pizza Hut etc.). Contemporary Islanders now have quite a great fondness for canned corned beef as well as SPAM, the modern versions of those products introduced so long ago by the white folks. I'll leave the Long Pig questions to others....

                      Last week, one of the cable stations aired the "History of Spam." During the wartime meat rationing (WWII), Spam got popular and because of this, the residents of Hawaii eat more Span than anywhere else in the world.

                        The theory that I have seen offered up is that SPAM (particularly when a relatively thick slice is fried until the outside is crispy) goes very well with poi.

                          Personally, I enjoy fried Spam with B&M baked beans. And I don't care what anyone thinks.

                          When we lived in the U.S. Virgin Islands, one of our friends was the Spam distributor, among other things. He used to serve Spam at parties. He'd cube it and saute it in dark Mt. Gay rum (he was the Mt. Gay distributor, too, not to mention Cutty Sark and Schaefer's beer) and serve it on platters with toothpicks. It was really good.

                            Hoffman: Sounds like a good friend to have.

                            In addition Spam is like a lot of other proteins, it depends on what is is served or cooked with. I have been a SPAM friend for a long time. I enjoyed it back in the early 50's.

                            It is a little bit like a hot dog. It is a processed meat with spices added and I personally enjoy it on occasion.

                            We had a lady that kept my daughter when she was a young child. Sometimes when we came home, she would have a can of Spam cooked for us with cloves. I hated cloves but I appreciated her efforts.

                            I have been to their site in Minnesota.

                                          Unfortunately, I don't eat anything 'unusual' for breakfast, but I love reading the replies! Someday, I'll have to do something really daring and eat a cheeseburger for breakfast.

                                            Hmm, Goetta doesn't sound THAT unusual - rare, but not that unusual as breakfast foods go.

                                            Growing up, just about any leftover baked good was considered a fine breakfast, apple pie, chocolate cake, cheesecake, you name it. If you don't have donuts yout make do, right?

                                            I've mentioned elsewhere that my Mom taught me a Yankee appreciation for (cold) baked beans on toast for breakfast.

                                            But my current fave is probably cold leftover steak. If there's some spinach with it (plain or creamed) I'll eat that too.

                                              My project assistant's family in Cincy was 100% German descendants and her mother used to make homemade goetta....she brought some to the job trailer one day..... its an acquired taste.....cold steak or homemade burgers are a fine breakfast food.......
