Well, Steve, since you asked:

I believe I'll have the link sausage, scrambled eggs, hash browns, biscuits with strawberry preserves, orange juice & coffee (black).

It was a great menu and hard to choose, but thought I would keep it simple. Thanks for the "Sploofus Island" breakfast!!!

What about SOS? I like SOS over toast over biscuits with 2 eggs over easy on top. No additional salt. Pepper. My Dad taught me to cook SOS when I was very young, 6 or 7. I still love it!

Omelet with sauted onions and fresh spinach, cheddar cheese and crisply crumbled bacon, served with sour cream. Ben also makes nice scrambled eggs with artichoke hearts served with my homemade hollandaise. Steel cut oatmeat with butter and cream and maybe a touch of honey.

SOS is the Army name for creamed chipped beef. It is a milk gravy with meat. I use hamburger but others use sausage. The name is S**t on a Shingle! Any of our wonderful veterans remember this?

2 eggs, scrambled dry but not browned, pepper during, salt after; two strips bacon, one sausage link; hash browns with onion and sharp cheddar.
Whole wheat or rye toast with real butter, no jam.
Tea, Earl Grey, hot. With sugar and milk, thanks, and keep it coming.
Finish with melon.

Or - a whole grain slow-cook oatmeal cooked in skim milk, with brown sugar, raisins and a dash of vanilla.
Or - Cream of Wheat made the same way. Both also cozy comfort food for winter TV-watching.

Dry cereals are for late-night snacks at our house. We have them with fruit and yogurt for dessert.

Super. Now I'm hungry.

I make the best apple pie and if I'm lucky, there's a slice left over for breakfast, along with a piece of sharp cheddar cheese. I love hot bran cereal and my husband makes the best coffee, but sometimes I'll have Earl Grey tea. And I'll take you up on that there French Toast, Tuz! I'll have an omellete of any kind if it's after 10:00 a.m.

This would be my choice if we are dealing with the Breakfast Nazi (just in case)
Eggs -- Yes -- 2 overhard (Broken yolk)
pepper on eggs while cooking (I use specific pepper I carry with me, please ask)
Bacon
American fries
Whole wheat Toast or English muffin if out of wheat
Raspberry Preserves (on side)
Cranberry Juice
Coffee black (sugar pack on side)
Water
Banana

In case Tuz is as easy going and benevolent as he seems (which is difficult to believe - I'm going to have to get my magnifying glass to see if that's blood the smock and a knife in the had of the bunny) - this is what I REALLY want

"my style" western omelet - Grated PepperJack / Cheddar Cheese, purple onion (sauteed first), CRISP bacon, red - yellow & green bell pepper diced. Cooked WELL with my pepper(no slimy runny egg white or yellow stuffs please).

Potato Pancackes topped with green onion, grated pepperjack / cheedar chesses, side of sour cream & small dish of CRISP crumbled bacon.

Cranberry Juice (will probably require multiple refills)
Water - no ice
Bloody Mary (Just bring me the ingredients please - I will actually mix myself if you'll bring me Stoli, Tomato Juice, Clausen Dill Pickle, jar of horseradish (got my own pepper thank you) and have a few other things in my purse, IF you can just bring me that - oh, and a side glass of ice.

This is good - now I can live through my post and maybe will feel the need to NOT eat it

I used to love a hearty breakfast with everything and lots of black coffee! Nowadays, I still like breakfast socially, but can only eat very tiny portions and no coffee. This is what I would choose:

One egg, poached lightly, salt and pepper added by me, mashed up and scooped up onto a grilled (in butter!) egg or plain bagel or grilled english muffin. The rest of the bread spread with strawberry jam.

Meat: a teensy steak, grilled rare, one strip of sausage or bacon, cooked lightly.

Hashbrowns or homefries smothered in onions and grilled to crispiness.

Waffles, pancakes or french toast...love them all. I used to love the Banana nut pancakes that IHOP had with lots of syrup, saturated into the cakes mmmmm!

Cream of wheat, cooked medium with brown sugar, cream and butter. Oatmeal cooked by my mom with milk, raisins, sunflower seeds and butter.

At home, I eat raisin bran mixed with fiber one with 1% milk and bananas. If I get sick of having cereal, I'll alternate with cottage cheese and mixed fruit.

I love fruit of any kind, especially grapes and honeydew melon!

Chilled Cranberry juice and hot chocolate with whipped cream and many LARGE glasses of cold water.

Yum!

My husband and I have both worked graveyard shift for the majority of our married lives and our breakfast and evening meals are switched, with lunch still being lunch.

Since I drive my rental cars from point a to point b at the atlanta airport, I like to stop in the main airport terminal and bring some chinese food home at 8 am, and have a glass of wine or beer with it. Lunch is generally something light like a spinach salad, and when I get up at 9 pm for my 11 pm shift, I like to have raisin bran or a bowl of cream of wheat.

I'm sure anyone on our little Sploofus island can relate to what I am saying about the morning and evening meals being switched.

Eggs: 2 over medium, seasoned with season-all, made by my mother, and also cut up by her into little bite size pieces. Yes, I am thirty and she lives a state away, however when mom cuts it up, it tastes better.
Or soft-medium boiled-my mom doesn't have to do anything
Meat: I have a super weakness for all breakfast meats, I guess sausage is my favorite. If Canadian back bacon is the same thing as what we in the south call "fat back", then you can leave that one out.
Potato: none, but when I used to party, there was nothing better late night when tipsy than Waffle House hash browns all the way, with Bert's chili on the side (Southern people know what I am talking about, to the Yanks, Waffle House is a 24/hour southern diner chain, and the last place that Kid Rock got into a fight.
Cereal:cold- reeses puffs, but I use it more as a chocolate fix snack than breakfast Blueberry pancakes from Cracker Barrel are dangerously good. So are malted waffles. "Eh" to the rest
Toast, english muffin, bagel all good
Blackberry jam WITH the seeds
Cranberry juice
Coffee-black
all fruit is good 'cept I am allergic to bananas

I think I'll have 3 eggs over medium, hashbrowns, one biscuit with sausage gravy (enough gravy to use on the hashbrowns too), 4 sausage patty's (medium to spicy). One glass of tomato juice and one cup of Mocha. A little pepper on my eggs and in the gravy, but no salt added to anything.

Eggs Scrambled with Green onions and Creme Cheese, tomatoes added at the last minute.

American Fries and can I get some onions thrown in those?

Rye Toast...but only if it's good Jewish Rye, none of the swirly "rye"...If you don't have Rye, I'll have a bagel, lightly toasted and buttered...oh... no butter on the Rye Toast if you have the rye toast, just on the side. If you don't have the rye, I'd like creme cheese for the bagel but on the side and cancel the creme cheese in the eggs.

Strawberry preserves will be fine, but not if they're in the little plastic packages, just cancel the whole toast or bagel if that's the case.

Orange Juice please WITH breakfast, not before it comes to the table.

In the meantime, I'd like a cup of coffee with Equal and 2% milk.

Oh yeah, do you have fresh melon? I'd love some of that...

Erin said: " If Canadian back bacon is the same thing as what we in the south call "fat back", then you can leave that one out."

no, it's not fat back. it's more like thin sliced lean ham. i think it is a cured tenderloin. it's usually in the cold cut section at the grocery.

Oh....you don't want to know what fat back is, or scrapple for that matter, and probably not chitlins. In high school I once kissed a guy who had just eaten scrapple. I almost barfed. So to cover it up, he ate a Werther's original. It did NOT help. Baaaaad combination in case anyone out there is ever in a situation where they have to kiss someone whom has just had this combination.

Lorri: I gotta know...what kind of pepper is that?

I just remembered a breakfast I used to love to have after 'partaking of the spirits' with friends the night before...IHOP's spaghetti and meatballs with a hamburger with extra tomatoes. Don't know what it is about tomatoes that seems to limit the alcohol damage, but I always used to crave them the next day after drinking.

If you trust me - PM me your snail mail/PO Box & I'll mail you a packet of it - you'll never be the same

If not - I understand - but I have great joy embarassing my husband with my refusal to use restaraunt pepper (I know what some of my friends used to do to those salt & pepper shakers) - and whipping this out to use on my food. HEY - You spend that much money - you don't use crappy pepper

and we like LOTS AND LOTS of pepper!

I'm thinking I like the sound of Lodi's breakfast now though - all she needs is a bloody mary

Grits southern style.

Fresh papaya, mango, pineapple with a little chopped mint.

A hammock suspended between palm trees, near enough to hear the surf at Po'ipu beach on the south shore of Kaua'i.

2 eggs, overeasy, crispy bacon, home fries, 1 slice toast to sop up the egg yolk when pierced, other slice for strawberry or raspberry jam. Glass of O.J. and a cuppa tea.

P.S. I'm only posting this so I don't get stuck with the dishes

Well, not even recognising half the stuff above, you've all forgotten the Full English Breakfast - surely the World Standard?

All the stuff before and after is assumed (cereals, fruits, juices, coffee, croissants, toast & marmalade etc.). The main course can only be:

Scrambled eggs (buttery) with chutney
Fried egg (soft yolk)
Bacon (not burned to a crisp)
Cumberland sausages
Mushrooms
Fried tomatoes
Baked beans
Fried potatoes (no, not yours - fried small chunks or circular slices)
Fried bread
Black pudding
Small pieces of mixed fried steak, liver & kidney

And the plebs will pour tomato or brown sauce over all.

Then, you've had a breakfast!

I know this will sound weird but I like:
Pizza for Breakfast

Whenever I eat a real breakfast, lately it has been oatmeal or bran flakes.

When I eat a breakfast like most of you are describing, it is around 2 a.m. after I have been out drinking all evening.

I was going to say! I can't remember a breakfast in England where tomato(e)s weren't offered.
For me, breakfast is Starbucks grande Latte, extra hot....and dreaming of their pastries that I can't eat. Does the island have a Starbucks? I've even tried to get my pastor to put in a Starbucks at church!

Tim Horton's coffee, buttered bagel and a Tylenol #4, but only because I didn't have any beer or pizza left.

Coddled egg (English version, anyway) is egg(s) poured into a ceramic container and mixed with whatever and thoroughly stirred.
The container is then sealed and put into boiling water to poach.
Out comes the egg dish according to your particular 'menu'.

Another favorite in our household when we get home from our graveyard shift jobs is a steaming bowl of spaghetti and meat sauce.

In the strange but true department, my cats love spaghetti.

They eat cat food only when they have to.

My favorites are:
2 eggs over easy with grits and bacon (I mix them together) a couple slices of tomato with white toast buttered. Hash browns and a biscuit covered with chipped beef gravy. A pecan waffle with butter and a little maple syrup. Glass of milk, oj, and hot tea with cream and sugar. A few strawberries and a slice of watermelon. And a nap.

Lisa: they replaced all the "Bess Eaton" donuts in the New England area with Tim Hortons in the last few years. I don't know how far out they are spread, but we have a ton of them here. Ghastly coffee!

Hey Robin... I'd have to agree... although, I'm not a coffee fan myself but, everyone else in Canada seems to LOVE Tim Horton's. Luckily, I'm a teatotaler so I can pretty much go to any coffee place I want.. and avoid the outrageous lineups at Tim's.

I really had no idea Tim's had branched out into the U.S... learn something new every day - and isn't this the perfect forum for learning?!? lol

Never mind Tim's, let's get to the important stuff. Corner Gas has leaked south of the border.

Let's see....hmm. Eggs? oh no, never touch them since the 'Uncle Bill's' incident a few years back. Bacon would be nice, coffee with lots of cream and sugar, toast and marmalade, a nice stack of pancakes and maybe a slice of melon to finish it off.

Eggs - 3 raw ones cracked into a highball glass (ROCKY, ROCKY!!)
No salt - I love to cramp up
A home made Suasage and Bacon Muffin (no eggshell ,like at Maccas!)
3 hashbrowns
A big bowl of Cheerios for me and Jacey (Oz or USA, Tuzilla lol)
Waffles or pancakes with strawberry jam and cream
A bottle of Strawberry/Citrus rush Gatorade for the bus trip into town for work
A vanilla slice when I get into town
(Stuff fruit - that's all I was allowed to eat after school when I was living at home, so I boycotted it later inlife!)
BON APPETITE!

ACK!!!! Look what you've done to Mr. Bigglesworth!

I like Horton's coffee. It is real coffee, not that wimpy stuff most places make. It is not full of cheap Robusta beans, either. Hence it is not acidy or bitter with bad notes such as green peppers or burnt rubber.
