I often have cheese on toast for breakfast. Chopped hardboiled egg in last night's salad with mayo instead of dressing. I used to do that a lot when I was doing low carb. If I am too hungry to spend any time on getting the meal ready, whole grain organic flakes with milk. If the mood strikes me, oatmeal with raisins and milk.

"Eggs with coffee" made me smile. I'm a confirmed tea drinker - not just the odd cup everyday - as many as 10 cups a day! I like coffee but it's more of a treat for me. However, tea does not go with eggs - it HAS to be coffee. Don't know what it is but if you have them together both the tea and the eggs taste peculiar.

I am not at my best first thing in the morning - No, let's be honest here - I'm the Creature From the Black Lagoon! A cup of tea and don't anyone speak to me is as good as it gets. So I tend to have breakfast mid morning, about 10 o'clock when I've managed to arrive at Fairly Human.

Usually toast and marmalade or porridge or cereal with milk. If lunch is going to be late or missed I might have scrambled eggs on my toast or a bacon sandwich.

My second husband loved a big breakfast. I never minded fixing it for him. He was one of those folks who appreciated when someone cooked for him. He had a huge appetite, stood 6'1" and weighed 140. Yet he could pack away food as if he were a sumo wrestler.

Coffee is definitely a breakfast drink with eggs. Some folks count the number of cups of coffee they have a day. I count it by the pots.

I vary my breakfasts, everything from home made pancakes, or french toast, to 2 delicate, poached eggs, poached in salted water, or poached eggs poached in a poaching pan, with the cups dressed with butter, sometimes steamed eggs. Sometimes I have a simple pbh, or pbj. Once in a while, I'll make a yummy french omelet, while at other times, it will be an American-style omelet. I love a bowl of shredded wheat, or oatmeal, or farina, or Red River hot cereal. I've been known to eat cold leftovers, or a spaghetti sandwhich, with sauce. If I have the biscuits already made, biscuits with sausage gravy has been known to cross my breakfast plate, as has been a simple crushed tomato with browned ground beef on toast. I've even had torn bread in milk with sugar. Another favorite is to take a piece of good bread, cover with honey, and let it soak in to give the bread that unique honey crunch. BLT's on rye are another favorite breakfast, as is that wonderful sandwich that I can't remember the name of right now, you know, the one with two pieces of French Toast sandwiching swiss cheese and ham, oh, the Monte Kristo. Give me a croissant with breakfast sausage and mutliple slices of American cheese for a great breakfast sandwich as well. I've made Eggs Benedict a few times before going to work.

Can you tell that I love variety, and am an impulsive cook. I make whatever I'm in the mood for.

Seeeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North.

Never been a breakfast person. Even now while I am out of work on short term disability I don't eat breakfast. I have always started my day with work or the commute, but recently had started with having more of a meal at my first break and snacking during 'lunch'.
Given that, I have gotten a few good ideas for easy breakfasts that fit into my 'wake and go' method of starting the day. Especially like the egg salad idea.
Coffee on the get up and go days but tea if I know I will have the time to really enjoy it, my time away from work it has definitely been tea.

Bacon and eggs almost every morning. Delicious, carb free and more importantly, simple. I'm the very opposite of a morning person. If it's complicated, I don't want to cook it.

Breakfast is usually leftovers from the night before. But, I have been known to sling some hash and fry some eggs or some French toast or pancakes.

We usually do a fruit smoothie. Most times, it has yogurt, skim milk, some kind of fruit, ground flax seed. It varies a lot depending what we have around. I like to toss all kinds of things in there. Some days it works, some days I have to choke it down. Gf won't eat anything in the morning, but she will drink some thing I make for her. When you get set up right, it usually only takes a few minutes..
