Just because people don't eat it every day doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

For my DA and me, it is a mixture of American and Romanian. American is cereal with milk, toast or English muffins with jelly and perhaps bacon.

Romanian will be polenta with crumbled bacon, fried eggs, and a buttered roll (bread).

Sometimes it is different as I am in school and time does run short: Cereal and a fried egg on top of toasted bread.

We often add nice fresh fruits to the breakfasts. Today we had the cereal, some bacon, and a nice grapefruit with milk and tea.

Your friend,
~Cat

French fries or home fries mixed with scrambled eggs and put in a tortilla with cheddar cheese. Sliced avocado and roasted spicy salsa.

Soup of any type is always good.

Omelette of any type.

C'mon now folks... if there is any traditional breakfast in America it is McDonalds #1 value meal; an egg McMuffin, hash brown and a coffee

I too think the traditional breakfast consists of eggs, meat (bacon or sausage), home fries and toast. I'll bet the above gets eaten by more Americans on a daily basis though.

And the McDonald's meal is basically a portable version of the traditional breakfast

Mrs Dawg is from a small Blackforest town so when we lived there we had a basic breakfast of coffee, fresh rolls, bread, butter, and jam, soft-boiled eggs and a selection of cold cuts and cheese.
Normally only on weekends as life was way too hectic during the week back then.

Don't think I saw "distant past" in the OP and I don't think the true native Americans ate an "English" breakfast.

I look forward to the large breakfasts that follow a major holiday.

Things like: Kielbasa, pierogies, eggs and rye toast slathered with butter or Italian hot sausage, Italian garlic toast with eggs and peppers.

When we were kids we also had fried smelts or bullheads, fried field mushrooms or venison tenderloin sliced and fried, great stuff!

Today I get by with a bowl of Fiber One and skim milk.

Like the guy on television says, fiber makes me sad!

Okay, you want to misconstrue on purpose? Have fun
