    Fuck that.

    Two pieces of wholemeal toast and a cup of freshly brewed coffee during the week. Sausage, bacon, eggs and toast at the weekend. Throw in some black pudding/haggis if I'm back in the UK.

    Always with a coffee and either brown sauce or English mustard on the side.

    I used to think it was smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and wholemeal toast. It was kind of a christmas morning family ritual. Do it every day and it becomes a bit dull.

    I fancy boiled egg and soldiers today but can't be arsed cooking and cleaning up for one, (maids day off).

    I am off to test my tame Thai restaurant owner. If she can produce soft boiled eggs, I might grant her 3 wishes.

    Ideal for me is usually oatmeal + some fruit or other, Greek yogurt or something like that.

    But ideally I'd like to eat an absolute shit-tonne of bacon instead.

    ^Bacon, sausages, and the rest is now a Sundays only ritual. Weekdays fluctuate from porridge, fruit, cornflakes, muesli, scrambled eggs, etc.
    Was never a real 'breakfast' fan, tbh. -Only really started making an effort to make brekkie when my son started school. As long as coffee is on the menu it's all good.

    Anyway Amigos Bon appetit I'm going to look at the builders 'working in slow motion' very relaxing, if these lads had been on the graet Wall of China or thePyramids they'd still be work in progess, thank Buddha they're not on a daily rate

    My grandad would never miss a brekkie and was adamant that it was the most important meal of the day. Not sure whether it was an army thing, but he had a cooked breakfast every morning (grilled rather than fried) until he died a few years ago due to smoking related problems.

    If I miss breakfast, I end up eating shite late on at night.

    All quite acceptable.....nay, scrumptious.
    wifey of course has something with rice. I can do that, but prefer any of the above.
    But then, she does hanker for bacon and eggs every now and then.....just as I, once in a while, will choose gui teaow.

    Working in Bangkok with the traffic and all breakfast is OJ, some fruit and toast during the week. But on Sundays brunch is the real deal. Either American or Thai.

    Why extra bacon for the classic Benedict. English Muffin, thick slice of Canadian bacon "cut from the loin" poached egg and hollandaise sauce. Sounds easy but its not thats for sure.

    I used to do a thing, don't know if it is a "thing", that my dad taught me:
    Lightly grease a pan (that has a lid) with butter. Put in some milk....not too much, but enough to boil and add some steam. Perhaps 2mm in the bottom of a pan that is big enough for two or three eggs. You'll get it as I proceed with the description.
    Break your eggs into the milk, salt and pepper to taste. cover with grated cheese. Cover the pan, and turn on a medium heat.
    Let the milk come to a gentle simmer, and if you've got heat/milk/cheese in the right proportions (and it is very finnicky in the way it turns out), the cheese has melted just as the egg whites are cooked but before the yolk goes hard.
    All the egg whites will have melded into one, and as the yolks are hidden under the melted cheese, you have to be careful to separate each egg from the other.
    If there is still some milk, try to spatula your eggs out without the liquid.
    Delish on buttered toast.

    ^ Yes...with nano-seconds-before-crispy bacon

    She very kindly serves up 3 poached eggs on wholemeal bread each morning. The eggs are daily fresh from the dear old girl across the road and, I have to say, are the best eggs ever. A couple of cups of coffee and that's the job done. Perfic.

    an instant coffee on waking, followed an hour or so later at around 8.30-ish by breakfast of a cup of decent filter coffee, two slices of toasted wholemeal multiseed bread with butter and marmalade.

    twice a week the toast will be substituted by a bowl of porridge with raisins and a banana.

    occasionally a couple of free range 3 minute boiled eggs from the farm up the road will accompany the toast.

    not too keen on fry ups, although they do kick start ones bowels.

    Full English- found a place in Mandalay that serves it up; so that's Saturday and Sunday sorted. During the week oatmeal. chopped banana and berries. Fresh black coffee- no sugar and it must be strong.
