What's your idea of the ultimate breakfast?

I can usually find mine at Shoney's Breakfast Bar although it's a tad expensive. :)

I like omelettes, bagels and cream cheese with lox, waffles, sausages.

There was also a Mexican place in Asheville, NC which opened at some rediculous hour...5 am or something...and they had Huevos Rancheros. You'd get chips and eye-opening salsa...at 5 am...and the eggs would come with warm tortillas, refried beans and rice. Excellent breakfast after partying all night!

Ultimate breakfast for me?

Big, tender New York strip steak with about six over medium eggs, home fries, side order of thick cut bacon, southern grits with a dab of butter on top, home made buttermilk biscuits AND toast, about a gallon of ice cold orange juice and fresh ground coffee.

Probably would clog arteries just looking at it. I had this for breakfast once many moons ago.

B & G, scrambled eggs (w/gravy all over the eggs, too), bacon. Coffee & and about a quart of OJ to wash everything down. I have simple tastes ;f

Love most any of the breakfasts offered at Cracker Barrel!

Otherwise it has to be a high quality buffet with the fancy schmancy stuff.

But my all-time fav is definitely my Wife's Eggs Benedict and Eggs Chesapeake. Nothing compares to her homemade, fresh hollendaise sauce. ;W ;W ~2

Don't need to eat anything the rest of the day :)

My ultimate breakfast would be 3-4 scramble (hard) eggs with chop chorizo and cilantro, followed with some good southerne hash browns and a few jimmy dean or vension patties.

washed down with a glass of pink grapefruit and a expresso coffee.

A nice ribeye steak with hash browns, and 2 eggs scrambled hard with diced up tomatoes, three slices of buttered toast, and a stack of pancakes, but the pancakes must be on the thin side, kinda like crepe's. And then wash it down with a a large 2 liter glass of Dr. Pepper.

Good one! I didn't realize other people liked fried bologna (just bologna cooked on a skillet). I've never had it for breakfast though. But bologna sandwiches (mayonnaise) are excellent. Add some cheese and onions...mmmmmmm...

Yes the Sambos Chain is gone ;1 but the origional Sambos is still there. (or was not very long ago) Last time I ate there it was like stepping back in time. They are on Cabrillo Blvd across from the Santa Barbara harbor. I keep meaning to take my wife there for breakfast when I visit Santa Barbara. We'll be there next month - I think I'll e-mail my wife and ask her to make a note so we don't forget.

My favorite quick breakfast is scrambled eggs with Laughing Cow cheese.

I add some mayo, cottage cheese and a little milk to the eggs, and add 1 triangle of Laughing Cow cheese for every 2 eggs - I typically make 5 eggs for the wife and me... and use 3 triangles of cheese.

If I am making a more elaborate breakfast, I'll also fry up some shoe string potatoes using red potatoes, and adding red onions, a couple of peppers, and sometimes a jallepeno or two.

Country sausauge from my local butcher... mmmm

Recently I made my wife eggs benedict from scratch, and served her in bed. She loved it... after she was finshed, she asked how the sauce was made. The look on her face was priceless when I informed her that a whole stick of butter went into the sauce which had been used to cover two eggs.

Chicken Fried Steak, hashbrowns, 2 eggs sunnyside up, gravy.

OR

I dunno if it has a name, but I make it with any leftover crabcakes. It is the same as eggs benedict with the addition of a crabcake and spiced-up hollandaise.
English muffin, ham, crabcake, poached, egg, hollandaise. Add some panfried potatoes, juice and coffee.

There is a nice little place here right on the harbor that has excellent eggs Benedict. They make it with smoked salmon and instead of an English muffin, use their house-baked fugasa bread. Awesome!

Sounds awesome!! Mind telling us the name of the resturant? I find myself along the central coast now and again. I had a great breakfast on the harbor in Morro Bay last summer, but it was not as great as this smoked salmon eggs benedict thing sounds!!!

OK, here are mine:

Quick & Good:

Egg Sandwich
2 eggs, yolks broken in skillet, hard fried (both sides, no runny yolk)
2 slices of wheat toast (well toasted; not burnt)
2 slices of Kraft Singles (American cheese)
Picante sauce of choice (I recommend Joe T. Garcia's Medium Salsa)

Cook the eggs, toast the bred, put one slice of cheese on each piece of toast, then put the eggs on one slice, salt & pepper, then close the sandwich up. Apply picante sauce as you eat and enjoy!!!

Not So Quick, but Great:

Eggs Benedict
2 eggs, poached (can use one of those plastic microwave egg poachers if you want to--they work fine)
2 English Muffin halves, buttered and toasted on a skillet
2 slices of Canadian bacon, seared on a skillet
1 packet McCormick Hollandaise Sauce (homeade is probably better but I like this stuff just fine), add 2 tsp. of lemon juice

Make the sauce, toast the muffins, cook the Canadian bacon, then poach the eggs. Put the Canadian bacon on the muffin and then the egg on the Canadian bacon. Then pour on the Hollandaise sauce, sprinkle on some cayanne pepper or paprika, and enjoy!!! ;f

High protein ...

Chicken breasts or Eye of round steaks with egg whites and some multi-graint toast (I cannot digest regular bread with flour in it... have to eat the sprouted grain stuff) ...

Protein protein and more protein !

Some good premium coffee doesn't hurt either !

Aldo's Restaurant, west side of the harbor, off the end of Seabright Avenue. They also have a bakery in downtown Soquel.

When you're here, stop in at Marianne's Ice Cream on Ocean Street. The best ice cream in the world, bar none!
