Tradition. Culture. Habit. Convenience. Marketing.
My great grandmother always had bacon grease for cooking as well. She was born in 1897. Most people would be horrified at the thought. I’ve done it myself but I don’t like the way it makes my eggs taste. It’s good for Catfish and chicken though!
I had a nice healthy Philly Cheesesteak sandwich for breakfast. In my concern for eating right, I chose to have two Chili dogs with lots of onions for supper. Should I have had the hot dog for breakfast? By the way, lunch seemed to call for a hot dog on a stick. There nothing like being a vegan to make one healthy!
I didn't have a lot to eat yesterday.. so this morning, just now, I made a pan size frittata..
fried onions, bacon and potato slices in a fry pan until nicely browned, pour in an egg mixture and let it half cook, then under the overhead grill with some cheese on top to brown off... a few slices of toast to put it on...
yumm... I needed that.
and why are corn dogs just for carnivals?
Who has time to cook a turkey for breakfast before going to work ?
I think it’s largely cultural. Typical breakfast fare in Japan, for example (pickled vegetables, rice, other small, savory bites...), would seem bizarre and somewhat offensive to American palates. Even traditional Mediterranean breakfast items are significantly “different” in many ways. How many Americans want sardines on toast for breakfast?
As a former ultra endurance athlete, it should be all about the right fuel at the right time of day, so to me, the traditional meals is total B.S. There are no rules, except intake fuel at the best times for peak energy and alertness during the day for peak efficiency. I took a year of nutrition classes that basically debunks any sort of traditional meals in this country.
My main thing is to get a pretty balanced diet every meal and push the sugar intake (of any source) as far into the day as you can. I quit competing a quarter century ago, but I still try to adhere to this simple strategy.
Oh, and avoid turkey until dinner at the earliest or else the tryptophan will wreck your day.
My favorite breakfast is two eggs over easy, hash browns, a nice New York or Sirloin steak presented rare, and one large biscuit for eating and sopping with, and one large biscuit for the gravy, which I want some of on my hash browns too! Some orange juice on the side, and hot black coffee. I think you wouldn't be able to call that anything but breakfast most anywhere.
The next morning after Thanksgiving I get up early and pile a bowl full of mashed potatoes and turkey gravy.
Before the others can get to it and spoil everything...
Good thing about gravy is when company shows up, you can just add another cup of water to it, and they most of the time don't even know any different!
Because although they are relatively inexpensive fair you need to have all the ingredients to make them and a deep fryer. To much work for home.
That sounds about perfect. Real hot coffee and make mine a stack of toast and jelly...drool.
I do the same thing except over a plate of Japanese rice. Now I’m getting hungry.
And a big hot apple fritter to chase it all down
My wife cooks breakfast in bacon grease for me to carry on the tradition but she hates the way it makes her eggs look dirty.
Get your ass out of bed, you lazy bastard. "I don't have time in the morning". Make time. Waah, waah, waah...
I think the cereal thing for breakfast was to help people poop right.
I was brought up on a fried breakfast of sausage, bacon, a small piece of steak or a slice of spam depending on how the budget was looking. Add to that fried eggs and a couple pieces of bread thrown in to soak up the leftover fat and lard and fried until transparent. It tasted great and did me more good than harm. I've never had a problem pooping.
Awww mann, I loves me some hot apple fritters, the bigger the better!
I didn't know fried eggs were supposed to be white until I ate some eggs over at my aunt Hellen's house when I was a kid in Alabama, I thought they just naturally had those grease speckles in 'em!
