Toast with jam or marmalade

continental breakfast - croissants, sliced cold meat, cheese etc

English fry up breakfast

or a mix of those?

I like different things on different days wiserlady, and I like all of your suggestions. I also love a 'proper' continental breakfast, having lived in Germany for a lot of years at one time. Lovely fresh crusty rolls, a selection of deli meats and cheeses, boiled eggs, jam and freshly brewed coffee. Oh and lashings of creamy butter. Almost goes without saying, for me!

Strawberries, Greek yoghurt and walnuts.

I like cereal a lot. But I love scrambled eggs and some ham, need more protein first thing in the morning. And of course my ramen on other days

I like and have poached egg with ham on toast but my all time favourite is a full English. Only have that occasionally as I'd be extremely fat in no time!

Branflakes and decaf coffee most days. Occasionally boiled eggs and toast. I do like scrambled eggs and hot smoked salmon for a treat.

I try to have something different for breakfast each day. The only item I would not eat at that time is....cheese.

Continental for me, can’t eat eggs, it’s usually toast and bacon for me.

Good morning. That's s good question and I think it depends on the time of the year for me. In the warm spring and summer days I love a continental breakfast in the garden sun coming up. Plenty of coffee. But as the weather cools porridge works. But Sundays this time of year can't beat a good fry up. Well 40 years in the building trade it's in my DNA. Stay safe happy and well all.

Porridge every day with a nice cup of tea.

Hmmmmm, my go to breakfast is mashed avocado on toast with Worcester sauce.But all time favourite is a full English with black pudding, which I only have a couple of times a year.

I’ve recently discovered peanut butter and jam on toast too....using meridian peanut butter so still kid myself it’s healthier...😀😀

A little of what you fancy.

Tea is always black with a splash of lemon juice.

Mainly porridge with milled seeds and goji berries, or a banana on top.

Or oatiflakes with blueberries or dried raisins and cranberry mix on top

I ate too much gluten and porridge for decades - and now I have gluten and oat intolerance.I usually eat cereal-free gluten-free buckwheat muesli, full-fat yoghurt, cream, bananas, and an orange. This is a lot of calories - but I usually only eat two meals a day. In an hotel, I would follow this with a smoked fish course and a traditional English breakfast!

Half the year on Rice crispy type cereal , next month it's back onto porridge .On holiday it's a cooked English breakfast. 😁

Jo. 😊

Fresh pressed coffee and Biscotti.

(US) My go-to breakfast is 1/2cup old fashioned rolled oats soaked overnight in the fridge ( “muesli”) in 2/3 cup almond milk seasoned with a scoop of whey powder (for yummy flavor and protein). This basic recipe is so very flexible: If you’d like a warm breakfast, nuke it in the microwave for 30 seconds or so. If not, cold is very refreshing.For variety, add a bit of ground cinnamon, nuts, berries, or fruit (such as banana) before serving. Oats have soluble and insoluble fiber and lend themselves to a variety of treatments. No, I don’t own stock in any oat-related endeavor 😁. Don

usually toast with pate, as I can't eat much sugar. For a special brunch American blueberry pancakes with crispy bacon and maple syrup.And I do like a hotel buffet or English breakfast, sums up being on holiday for me, having someone put an extravagant breakfast in front of you!

Oh and lots of freshly brewed coffee.

Porridge (with fruit and seeds/nuts). Excellent for a healthy diet and to avoid gluten (that is far too present in our diets)

I usually do a breakfast bar. But if I do breakfast for dinner I like bacon eggs and hash browns. Pecan waffles are good to.

Hello wiserlady

I will have one of each, some eggs benedict, cream of wheat and orange juice.

Toast sometimes, I rarely eat breakfast as I'm never hungry when I get up. Always have a cup of tea, cant drink much coffee but I occasionally make a cup of a nescafe sachet.
