A  breakfast. At 4 in the morning. Cereal, topped with sliced banana and peach. A hefty piece of bread pudding.  A waffle. With maple syrup. A cup of cappuccino, too. Yes, I know how to start the day.  In a proper way. --Jim

I’ve steered clear of blood sausage. Turns me off. But when in Scotland, I accepted a dare.  And had a breakfast sausage known as Haggis. The Scots tell me it contains sheep’s pluck (heart, liver and lungs) with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices and other mysterious and secret ingredients.  Did me no harm. That I know of. --Jim

lol...not doing either regardless of where I am. "Proper breakfast" here has been reduced to a toasted Bay's english muffin with Dundee's orange marmalade.

A bowl of Cheerios and my favorite mug filled with coffee does it for me these days. I'm afraid my days of high carbohydrates are behind me. Sigh

Just plain. Boring, but satisfying.

After my morning workout, I normally have 2 pieces of toast with light butter and a big handful of almonds, small cup of coffee. Once in awhile, we like to go out for breakfast, where I always get 3 panackes, 2 over easy eggs, and as thick as possible bacon. Not the healthiest, but once or twice a month, its OK.

When we were going back and forth to Santa Fe we always stopped at Denny's (not a lot of choice) and got the senior breakfast. It had all of those things.

Chris,  I am a cheerios person too.  Just plain is the way I like them too.  And of course my coffee.  Can't do without that!

Andrew,  I do the same once in awhile.  May not be that healthy, but sure tastes good!!!

It's horrible stuff, Julie. As to the matter of the fact, both my parents loved it, and look at what happened with them. Dad died in 2007, and then my mom went in 2017. I realize my sample group is kind of small, but I say it was bread pudding, and I caution you to stay away. Remember what Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote. " As you value your life, stay off the moors." Maybe that's the wrong story, but I'm sure if there hadn't been publishing constraints, he would have included bread pudding with that warning.

Shop around, Blue Skies. You’ll find bread pudding somewhere.  Perhaps on the dessert menu. At a restaurant. Or in the bakery section. At some chain stores. I got it recently at Wal-Mart. It’s prepared in many  ways. By different ethnic groups. Basically, it’s stale bread. Put to good use. Mixed with other good and tasty stuff and seasoning. And baked.  I find the best bread pudding when traveling in Canada. In Manitoba and Ontario. More so than in the U.S.  You haven’t lived fully. Until you’ve sampled several recipes of bread pudding. --Jim

Thanks for the warning Chris, but I think I will be adventurous and try it as Jim has recommended.  After all, I like plain Cheerios.  I may like bread pudding as well.

My favorite cereal, topped with fresh fruit, is called Life. The vanilla-flavored version. I also like hot oatmeal. With a splash of milk. And a sprinkle of brown sugar. Can't beat it. On a cold winter morning. In Minnesota. Also, give me a slice of apple strudel. Allows me to skip lunch. I watch my weight. I'm 5-11. And stay under 170 pounds. Exercise is my salvation. --Jim

During the week my LO gets scrambled eggs with sausage. mainly so I know he has eaten something before I get home to fix dinner. On the weekend he gets the full big breakfast eggs, potatoes and sausage with milk gravy. He is rather spoiled but a long as he enjoys it I will fix it. I always made homemade gravy but now I cheat the brand Southeastern mills has a good country gravy or peppered gravy. He's never been much of a cereal or pancake person. I love cooking and maybe its for my piece of mind that I know he's had a good breakfast before I have to leave him home while I go to work.

I just have a banana and a handful of pills! But the other day I made myself  a full blown breakfast! I'm getting tired of eating though, always afraid of getting  sick- it gets old.

When I was growing up my Grandma always made Bread Pudding and it was very good. I got her recipe someplace. I remember it takes bread milk eggs and vanilla and it bakes in the oven. Blue Skies I bet you can  find a recipe on the website. If not let me know and I will give you the one I got. Hugs to all Zetta

and I have one from a cooking class in New Orleans (it was an activity during a conference not something I went there for...lol). It is always 100 times better served with hard sauce.

There are probably few deviations ...the key is moisture!
