In our region, the traditional breakfast (as has been described here) is still served. But...that's because we live in a heavily farmed area and the farmers need their "fuel" for the day. They work, and sweat, hard all day long, in spite of having air-conditioned machinery.

As for our house, our weekday morning fare is usually pretty light and quick. Both of us are retired and aren't spending our days doing back-breaking chores so we don't need to tank up very heavily.

Sunday breakfast is when we "splurge" and enjoy a variety of more complex and calorie-laden foods. Still, we don't go nuts there either. Just goodies we wouldn't normally eat during the week.

On the flip side of the coin, I have a friend who visits once a year from Yorkshire, and his favorite American breakfast is pancakes at Perkins.

I've always considered a traditional American breakfast to be two eggs, hash browns, toast, and either bacon or sausage. But just like with the English breakfast, I don't think there are many of us who eat that sort of thing every day.

I try to eat something for breakfast every day. Occasionally I'll take the time to make eggs, but other days it might not be anything but a muffin with preserves and a cup of coffee.

What's up with the Heinz beans in England? How do they compare to canned baked beans in the US? I have visited a diet forum and there's an English woman who eats Heinz beans every day. Someone there posted that Heinz beans in England aren't the same as Heinz beans in US. I love baked beans but they usually contain too much sugar for me to be eating with my diabetes.

I eat eggs almost every day, but don't have the potatoes, toast, bacon, sausage. Just eggs, sometimes with leftover veggies or sliced tomatoes. I like oatmeal too, but like to have protein at the first meal.

The only time I have the full traditional breakfast is when we go out and I would really rather not have all those other things, but it is the "special" and you pay just as much if you order ala carte. I am addicted to McDonald's breakfast sandwiches and have them very often, without the hash browns. Our McDonalds has many manager's specials and they are usually BOGO or two for $3. I love a bargain!

I tried Heinz beans and still prefer Bush's on my buttered toast for breakfast. Heinz were runnier. Maybe they like more sauce over there.

I don't think Black Pudding is very popular over here for breakfast. I saw it on a breakfast menu one time when I stayed in Bridgwater.

Never has been in my household. Although my first husband had a taste for it. That had to be from the Scottish/English side of him.

No one I know likes it. DH and I tried it when we were in Ireland. Did not like it at all. Sorry, GQ

If we have a traditional breakfast in our house it's never the first early meal of the day, for sure. It might be brunch when we get home from church if we go in the morning - but we don't get home from church until just after noon. Most of the time that egg/meat/potato/toast traditional breakfast is served as supper. Himself likes his bowl of cereal almost every day, sometimes with a sliced banana. I'll have cold cereal sometimes in warmer weather, oatmeal most of the time in cooler weather, and something baked or toasted when it's not cereal.

Carol, I started making "McMuffins" when our kids were in school. You can buy sliced Canada bacon at most grocery stores. Maybe pac's house. I'd make an entire package of English muffins worth, freezing them individually wrapped after they cooled. Have a taste for one and it's cold and snowing outside? No problem! If you're hubby wants it handed through the drive-thru you could always hand it to him as he drives out of the garage...
