What’s for breakfast?

MrPossumMrPossum Posts: 476 ✭✭✭✭✭

Most important meal of the day, outside of second breakfast. Mine mostly consist of eggs, grits, sausage, bacon, biscuits or muffins. I’d like to know what kind of breakfast everyone enjoys, maybe try some new things. Let’s share some experiences.

Ignore the mess, decided to post this last second because I was hungry, this is my typical work breakfast, eggs, grits, half a biscuit with mustard, other half with grape jelly, sausage patty on top.

    On the weekends I have eggs and toast. Basic but fills me up till lunch 👍🏻

    @Jrflickster that a Bloody Mary? Me and the wife have been trying to get in to blood Mary’s, but can’t ever find a decent recipe/mix, we had a real good one at a restaurant in Destin a while back, and have been craving them ever since

    Try using V8 instead of tomato juice?

    I had 4 eggs, scrambled, and 3 breakfast sausage links. I typically have just 4 eggs or 2 eggs and 2 sausage. My wife decided to spoil me this morning. :)

    One of three things, goetta, porkies or a bagel. Pretty boring but it works

    intermittent fasting, nothing before 2 pm.

    Same here, except 1pm is lunch. I was doing this for years, before IF came into vogue, simply by sleeping in.

    Even if I get up earlier, like on Sundays, I just don't feel like eating breakfast. When I'm "forced" to eat breakfast, like when there are some buddies that want to meet up and if I don't meet up with them I won't see them and I end up succumbing to the pictures on the menu, a big breakfast bogs me down for the whole afternoon.

    Sunday breakfast: Half a dozen eggs and a bag of simply potatoes, usually the onion ones, topped with Calvin's hot sauce or an acceptable substitute.
    Monday through Saturday: A Coke or a Mountain Dew.

    My wife made breakfast burritos with cantaloupe for breakfast this morning and I brewed the coffee.

    I'll gladly bomb you Tuesday for an Opus today.

    Went to KeKes this morning. Enjoyed a pancake, 2 eggs over medium, homefries, 3 strips bacon, and rye toast. Was yummy. Breakfast makes me happy. Best meal of the day.

    Afraid of aluminum as in residue being ingested?

    I miss my heavy omelet pan, my wife is afraid of aluminum so I gave it away.

    Well seasoned cast iron can get the job done, i buy bacon once every couple of weeks mainly for the grease, season before and after every use

    She is (overly) cautious, and like most of us once we think we know something it is difficult to change. :)

    "Aluminum and Alzheimer's Disease
    In the 1960’s, when aluminum was initially suspected to be a causative agent in Alzheimer’s disease, concerns arose about the safety of using aluminum cookware. While this safety issue has not been fully resolved, dietary aluminum is no longer a major suspect in this disease. A report published in the May 2014 “Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine” noted, for example, that brain changes caused by aluminum toxicity are not the same as the damage or impairment noted in Alzheimer’s disease. Also, conflicting research exists on key issues such as cognitive impact of occupational exposure and reliability of animal studies completed on aluminum toxicity."

    I assumed that’s what it was @silvermouse. I’ve read several conflicting studies over the last few years regarding aluminum and Alzheimer’s. I hadn’t seen one about cookware though.
