What do you eat for a typical breakfast?

First cooked breakfast in months. When I do though it's usually something like this.

Reasonably common here with places that do breakfast.
It’s hit or miss around here. I know where I can find them, but they’re definitely in the minority of places doing breakfast.

Fortunately for me, one relatively near me does them quite well AND serves them breakfast, lunch and dinner!

Just realized I might have selective bias.

Wife checks online menus. She looks for.
1. Caesar Salad.
2. Sticky date pudding.
3. Eggs Benedict.

So if a place has those items odds are we will visit.

Personally I like variety worst case scenario steak or burger that's decent.

Apart from not seafood I don't care to much. Exception would be Arabic. There's a new Syrian food truck in town.....

I've been working on my egg game over the last few years. We like them over easy, crispy at the edges.

Here's what I've figured out:

1. Get the pan really really hot.
2. Use a little too much butter.
3. Salt, pepper, and a little paprika.

If I make sure the pan and butter are really hot, I get perfectly runny yokes, fluffy whites, and crispy edges.
 

Usually two slices of bacon and a two egg omelette, fried in the bacon fat, with a cup of black coffee (fresh ground, currently, though sometimes I buy pre-ground).

Usually I will saute some sliced fresh mushrooms or diced bell peppers in the bacon fat before adding the eggs, and season with Tony Cachere's Creole seasoning or some herbs de provence or some other spice. I often add a few slices of fresh avocado atop the omelette, assuming my local store has ripe ones in stock. Sometimes I'll substitute pork breakfast sausages with mustard in place of the bacon.

On weekends, especially if I have a guest or partner to breakfast, I'll often add fresh fruit and make waffles, crepes, or french toast, always with real maple syrup from NH or occasionally a neighboring state. Or possibly pan-fried potatoes as an alternate starch. Another favorite is BLTs, but I usually won't make them unless I have leftover fresh baked bread from a feast at my mother's.

If I oversleep and don't have time to make breakfast I may get an egg and sausage (hold the cheese) croissant sandwich at Dunkins, or go to the cafeteria at work and get a fresh toasted everything bagel with butter, some scrambled eggs, and sausage or bacon.
 

Years ago, Pancakes, egg omelets with ham and cheese, sausage and bacon, biscuit with orange juice.

now eggs, toast and bacon or sausage with water

Top wife's eggs Benedict with extra couple of hash browns.

Bottow breakfast bagel (bacon, egg, hash brown, relish etc), cheese roll, and chips w/chipotle aioli.

I had flat white coffee wife had a mocha.
 

Fiber One Bran, some low fat milk, and all the berries in the world (straw-, blue- and black-, along with banana which is also a berry though people don't think about it that way).
 

Still on my eggs, bacon and black coffee, though I've recently started having a small whey protein shake alongside, as part of increasing my protein intake generally.

Had a lovely brunch yesterday as well, with fresh fruit (green grapes, watermelon, honeydew, mango, and pomegranate), thick cut bacon, fresh Belgian waffles with NH maple syrup, some bits of cheese and sausage from the charcuterie board, good coffee with Coole Swan, and fancified mimosas with a little passionfruit and gin.

Given the reference to "unsweetened tea" I would guess American South, though the expected reference would generally be "unsweet tea."

Possible. I do have relatives in the South though, and I don't remember ever hearing any of them mention Salisbury steak or (particularly) mashed potatoes for breakfast. That was why I was curious.

Very good linguistic sleuthing!

I’m a long-time resident of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex of North Central Texas, famous for the the Dallas Cowboys American football team, unscrupulous oilmen on TV, and getting our butts apocalyptically frozen every 11 years.

To answer the question @Thomas Shey asked, I had breakfast at a diner that serves its entire menu throughout their business day*. I was going to have their Eggs Benedict when I walked through the door- theirs are pretty good- but I decided beef sounded better this AM. (Hadn’t had any in days.)



* I love diners like this, because some days, you want something different than the usual fare offered at a particular time of day. 2 weeks ago, I almost did liver & onions at a different diner (again, a dish that place does well), but chose otherwise.

Bet you could get a great steak & eggs at a place like that.

And you have now given me sufficient information to differentiate between Texas and Georgia/Alabama/Tennessee/Kentucky, so thankyaverramuch :)
