To egg or not to egg....

Here's a riddle. What's crazy to some people first thing in the morning but is totally normal to others?? Tic toc, tic toc. What can it b? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.... Ok. Alright. I'll tell you.

THE KIND OF BREAKFAST you consume! What is the norm for you is not so for others. I first discovered this when I visited Hawaii and found they serve among other things, RICE for breakfast at McDonald's! I was surprised. I don't know why though. I grew up eating rice and fried eggs from time to time for dinner but I guess I never thought to have it for breakfast! Crazy!

And then I found an article on how different breakfast is around the world and eating in the morning has now taking on a whole new meaning! It doesn't have to be BACON & EGGS!! or PANCAKES!! Now I can opt for mmmmm....yummy, yummy "churros" with hot chocolate for dipping as they do in Spain, grilled kippers (smoked herring) and poached eggs like in Scotland or I can have my left over spagetti on toast as they do in Australia! Who knew? This has sparked a whole new madness in me. I no longer have to eat the yogurt, bagel or omelet breakfasts I have known my entire life! I can mix and match. I can use left overs! I can be in any part of the world I want to be on any morning I choose! Gotta love that!

Now I'd like to know who eats what for breakfast. Be part of my survey. I love to be educated and pass it along! I am curious to know what else is out there for breakfast and what culture it comes from. What do you eat first thing in the morning? Please feel free to comment!

I have always had a problem with breakfast because I'm not a big egg eater.

I've been seeing a holistic nutritionist, she suggested rice too, btw! She also suggested whole grain bread with almond or cashew butter. I tried it and it is so delicious and holds me for hours.

You are obsessed with beautiful food and you are making me very hungry.
I used to be a baker and when i started my shift i would grab a hot juicy scotch pie take the crust off and put it in a scotch bap, Heaven. My favourite has to be millionaire’s shortbread and Eccles cake.
