Shouldn't have done this late at night. Now I'm hungry. Oddly enough, I have had almost all of the five I got, sometimes two or more at the same time. Breakfast is the one meal of the day I almost never skip.

Well, this WP made me hungry, too! I'll have to wait until the puzzle is over to share my favorite breakfast items. But fun, fun, fun! Thanks!

Yep, great puzzle - even though I really blew it big time on one I never heard of. But then I never have been a big breakfast fan. I always preferred to sleep an extra 15 minutes

I'm not a breakfast person, so I couldn't imagine having most of those. Or, at least, I'm not a traditional food type breakfast person. I have some suggestions that I'm sure weren't there. But, I guess I have to wait till the puzzle is over. Or. maybe I'll feel moved to write "A Personal breakfast"!

Great puzzle, thanks.
There was one breakfast in my set, that I had never heard of. Mushrooms on multigrain toast. Is this a regional thing?
I quite enjoy a mushroom omelet on occasion, but simply on toast just doesn't seem right to me.

I have to chime in with the fact that I've NEVER run across a grilled tomato served in the US for breakfast. Or for any other meal, unless chopped up on a pizza!!! Are you sure we weren't in the UK for a minute? When we were in Scotland and Wales, I would collect them from the Yanks at our table and eat a great pile.

Ironically, I knew all the other countries' breakfasts, except the one in my backyard. The Southwestern breakfast had some chipotle kind of sausage, but it wasn't spelled "chipotle." Double irony, I just ate at Chipotle's Restaurant yesterday.

If you lived in southwestern Maine, you might not know about chipolata sausage.

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, and soon I'll be enjoying it! I especially enjoy breakfasts with my sister because we make a variety of stuff and then share. Here's a perfect breakfast for me:

-- 1/2 of a spinach and mushroom omelette
-- 1 1/2 pancakes with pecans stirred into the batter (no syrup of any kind can touch the pancakes or else they're contaminated, LOL) Plain or buckwheat pancakes will also be delicious.
-- Some sort of fresh fruit. In a pinch, unsweetened applesauce will do.
-- Hot tea
-- My sister's company. If she can't be here, then the company of a good friend or even my cats, who generally want to investigate the omelette.

Pulled this from Wikipedia:
A chipolata is a type of fresh sausage, believed to have been created in France and similar to an Italian sausage but usually prepared as a very thin, breakfast sausage-style link, often grilled rather than pan-fried or poached. Chipolatas are normally made from coarse-ground pork seasoned with salt and pepper together with such herbs — according to the particular recipe — as sage, thyme, pimento, and/or nutmeg.[1] The word is French and is believed to derive from the Italian cipollata, which essentially means "made with onions" and according to some sources may have referred to an onion stew with sausages.[2]

Chipolatas are also eaten a great deal in the United Kingdom. They frequently appear as part of a Christmas dinner wrapped in streaky bacon as pigs in blankets[3]. They are commonly eaten and referred to in Scotland as "Kilted Pigs".[4] Chipolatas are similar to a type of breakfast sausage found in Australia.[citation needed] They are not to be confused with cocktail sausages, often served at buffets, which are much smaller, thinner and around half the length of typical chipolatas.
My bad. I thought the clue "Southwestern breakfast" meant U.S. when it must have been Southwestern Europe.

The breakfasts we had at Denny's in Vancouver in 2001 were legendary......huge servings with maple syrup over EVERYTHING!
I fell in love with Canadian bacon, but cannot get it here in Oz.
......I gained 5 Kg too...

When Costco eventually opens in Sydney, we will take a train trip down there to check out what they have that I have been unable to get here: things like cans of Pillsbury biscuits, pinto beans, tomatillos and the aforementioned Canadian bacon.......yum!

Now I'm hungry too.............
My favorite breakfast is mashed banana and peanut butter on toast. I also love rolled oats cooked with dried fruit in the keeps me going all day.

Bev, I'm a big oats fan, too. I put a handful of the big whole old-fashioned ones in a bowl with a cup of yogurt and half a cup of applesauce, good stuff, and good for you!

Bev - I am a Costco freak. Dunno what they'll carry in Australia, but I can tell you every single item that is sold here. Family of 2 right - I must spend $400/month at Costco. I adore the place.
