I'm with you, Ishbel...

I like the same things as you for breakfast... I often eat oats porridge, and just love a full-on breakfast - so does my family. I practically had this ground into me - when my girls were small, it was like you were a bad mother if they missed having porridge - so it was porridge every morning, mostly oats or corn-meal (we call it mealie-meal) and sometimes cream of wheat. I love oats porridge with a bit of fresh cream.

If we do the whole schmooze, then no lunch - it keeps us going a long time. Actually, we do this for dinner sometimes, too! -Sandyj

I agree Rainee!! Biscuits and sausage gravy is one of my favorite breakfasts. In fact that is what I had for breakfast today. A half order of biscuits and gravy for $3.50. The gravy had huge pieces of sausage. Yummy!!

As for the poll I picked a Denver omelet. I would have added home fries with the omelet. I like pancakes and maple syrup, but I can make that at home. Belgian waffles are another favorite of mine.

What I normally have for breakfast during the work week is cereal. Every once in awhile I will have a bagel with cream cheese.

I had been in the mood for iHop all day since reading this thread! James (Maidrite) didn't even know that, but he wanted to go tonight too! So, since we had to go up toward Charlotte tonight, that is where we had supper. We both had their new ham and 3-cheese omelette, with mushrooms, black olives, and tomatoes added. James had chocolate chip pancakes with his. I had pancakes (they come with it) and hashed browns. Yes, Duncan got some omelette and pancakes when we got home!

There only needs to be one thing on the menu to make me happy - and that's Eggs Benedict. I have been totally addicted to this yummy dish since I first tasted it 5 1/2 years ago when we first arrived in this country. Because it's not so good for your heart, I limit myself to only having it if we eat breakfast out (about once every couple of months). My husband is getting sick of me ordering the same thing every time...but I am in 7th heaven if it's on the menu :)

P.S. French toast in England (we also call it 'eggy-bread') is totally different to over here - it's savoury! we whip up eggs with salt & pepper, dip the bread in, fry it, then eat it with tomato ketchup or steak sauce. When my daughter went on her first sleepover, her friend's Mom was very amused when she asked for ketchup with her french toast...Linsey had never had American french toast before and didn't know that it was sweet LOL!

My pick was for the Texas breakfast, only because of the biscuits and gravy (hold the steak). I LOVE biscuits and sausage gravy, which are not all that common in the Boston area, so I get them wherever, whenever I can.

I was interested in Paint's post about savory French Toast. Now that you and your daughter have had both sweet and savory, which do you prefer?

And to Ishbel, my mother and I visited Scotland 20 years ago. Up until then, she hated oatmeal. In our hotel, they served it with cream and Sugar in the Raw (that I know now as turbinado sugar), and she has been an oatmeal fan ever since! But what we've had here has never been as good as what we had in Scotland.

Lee, my youngest daughter prefers the savoury kind, my eldest doesn't like either...I have never tried the sweet kind, but it sounds very yummy and It's something I've been meaning to make for a long time...Hmm, maybe for breakfast tomorrow? :)

Oh, what the heck...I'm going to make some now...I'll get back to you with my thoughts on it!
