Steak, eggs over easy and fried potatoes or fried sweet potatoes

Fillings baked into biscuits or wrapped in bread dough and baked (shrimp and asparagus; egg, cheese and meat; steak and rutabagas; lots of the same stuff I'd put in an omelet)

French toast and meat

Fruit salads (lots of variations)

Yogurt smoothies

home made granola

biscuits and gravey

fritatas using a lot of the same stuff I'd use for an omelet

I have something I make called a Breakfast Casserole that is a hit with everyone who
tries it. My surplus time isn't always predictable so I can make this ahead for a Sunday Breakfast or cut it up and put it in plastic zip locks for later use.

Here is a basic recipe I started with. You can dress it up to suit your own taste.


I can make grits, fry eggs, and have sausage or bacon to go with this. Often some
peppered gravy and fried apples with biscuits too.

If calories weren't an issue I would make eggs benedict all the time. I love it.
I would serve with some crenshaw melon and some hawaiian papaya washed down with a bottle of good champagne and some Kona coffee.
Just be yourself! Everyone else is taken.

Well, lets see if I get my Breakfast Casserole linked in correctly this time.

Amish Breakfast Casserole Recipe - Allrecipes.com

When I serve this to friends or family, it takes them far less time to eat it than it takes me to make it.

I'm with you on the eggs benedict--but my issue is all the pans it takes to make them!

I eat a "first meal" (may be my only meal) every day. I almost always eat 2 eggs (why not, I have hens!). I like as sides one of the following: grits, cream of wheat, wild rice, oatmeal. I almost always drink a glass (equals 12 oz) of beet, orange, or grapefruit juice, freshly juiced/squeezed. I don't eat bread very often.

My "quicky" version of eggs benedict is to poach 2 eggs, steam a couple of cups of kale and put a thin slice of swiss cheese on top of the eggs (which I put on top of the kale). I skip the bread component and meat (bacon/sausage) component.

i make a mock eggs Benedick. half english muffin, one slice canadian bacon, a soft cooked egg. everything covered with creamed spinach (frozen) then sprinkle with cheese of choice. the spinach is hot enough to heat ever thing. or can pop in micro. for 15 seconds.

have to go back into my childhood (and somehow get back my childhood body to eat this much food)

I'd be sleeping over at my Grandma and Grandpa's house. I'd awaken and head downstairs, after getting dressed. My Grandma would serve me either a bowl of Honey Smacks, or bread and milk with sugar. Sometimes there would be either a grapefruit half, or a big slice of ripe cantaloupe. Following this, My grandpa would make two poached eggs, with toast. The eggs were poached in a poaching pan, with butter spread into the cups before the eggs were dropped in. The eggs were always served with a runny yolk. The final part of this amazing meal would be either pancakes with syrup and sausage, or freshly made waffles, again with syrup and sausage.

If I could still eat that much, and weigh less than 100 lbs. like I did back then, that's what I'd be making for myself, and my family.

Though, I have to say, I'd change the pancake recipe from Aunt Jemima's, to G.W.'s' World Famous Pancakes.

But then again, it's really hard to beat home made belgian, yeast-risen waffles, with fresh fruit and whipped cream. And then there are those Dutch Babies that I love so much. And I've become very fond of coddled eggs, made in salted water, and served atop buttered toast, with a side of 3 perfectly cooked bacon slices, or breakfast sausage, or fried corned beef hash.

Oh, and have I told you about my friut-stuffed french toast?

And omelets, quiche, crepe's, breakfast pizza, etc., etc., etc.

Ok, I admit it. There are just too many weapons in my cullinary arsenal to be able to pin down what I'd make for breakfast, if time wasn't a factor. I mean, when's the last time you had a blueberry burrito? What! You've never had a blueberry burrito? Well you just don't know what you're missing.

Porridge with butter, brown sugar & REAL maple syrup for starters. Next would be Johnsonville Cheddar Turkey sausages grilled or baked, caramelized onions, eggs cooked to individual choice (I short order cook the eggs how each person wants them if time permits as I consider egg preparation as personal as underwear), turn over bread (not like sweet fruit turnovers, more like a cross between biscuits & flapjacks - not sweet at all - Paula Deen calls them ho cakes), nice crisp hashbrowns, perhaps some homemade white gravy, & don't forget the cantaloupe slices. This being said, I wouldn't attempt this unless I was less than 30 years old or currently on lipitor or some other statin drug to somewhat protect those arteries,LOL.
