Usually cereal during weekdays. Now that it's getting cold, oatmeal is an option. Minute oats with water and brown sugar.
When I'm feeling fancy I buy English muffins and add a fried egg, ham or Canadian bacon, and cheese! Weekend breaksfasts includes, pancakes with shredded hash brown or cheese grits and eggs or sausage.

Most of the year, I have a fried egg on an everything bagel with some melted Mexican cheese and part of an avocado on top. It's a super tasty breakfast sandwich and takes just a few minutes to make. Plus coffee.

In the fall/winter, I often make these jumbo pumpkin muffins, recipe by Martha Stewart--they are sooo delicious, and have lots of "superfoods" in them that are good for you (walnuts, yogurt, pumpkin, eggs) and they are large so one with a cup of coffee keeps me going all morning: http://www.marthastewart.com/355570/pumpkin-muffins I splurge for organic canned pumpkin puree for making these, and just use the full 15 oz can instead of the odd amount that the recipe calls for, always turns out fine: http://www.vitacost.com/farmers-market-organic-canned-pumpkin-puree-15-oz-2

Today: steamed sweet potato with diced avocado on top.

A whole avocado, because I am an avocado glutton.

Today I had a smoked tempeh and avocado sandwich because we run out of the usual, and it was the best thing ever.

Awesome thread!  I need a change from my stand issue, which is:

- 1 bowl of Spoon Sized Shredded Wheat + Bran
- 1 cup Americano style Sumatra dark coffee made with the awesome aerobie aeropress
- whatever the kids leave behind (banana slices with PB)

I'm totally going to try oats + PB.

Fall thru spring I usually make a frittata at the beginning of the week and cut it into wedges, and wrap them up in the fridge.  Then it's easy in the morning to grab a wedge and, depending on how much time I have, I either warm it up with a slice of cheese and eat it on toast, or just eat it cold.

I have a toasted mini bagel with crunchy peanut butter every day. My boyfriend has a very particular and sophisticated toast system that I don't fully understand, though lately he's been working on finishing off a pumpkin pie I made for Canadian Thanksgiving.

I have two fried eggs on toast with coffee. Lately I've been jazzing up the eggs with some sliced cheese and deli ham or turkey. Some days I skip the cheese and have a yogurt instead. Once a week or so I work from Panera and treat myself to a bagel sandwich and scone.

Same thing every day for 7 years: Tacos. Costs me between $.08-$.29 cents a taco, I eat 3 each morning unless I have physical activity (long commute, run, or a job outside) then I have 4. I started this because my commute was 10 miles each way, and after biking for an hour, this was the only thing that kept me still full.
Ingredient        Cost per taco
beans      0.05
tortillas      0.02
"cheese (vegan)"   0.15
Habenero sauce   0.02
lettuce/spinach   0.07
canola oil   0.01
hot peppers 0.006
      Total Cost of Tacos   0.29 (high end)
      Per week cost   8.20(high end)
      Per Month cost   36.32511099 (high end)

I'm rarely hungry in the morning so I usually skip breakfast. Otherwise it's a banana or an apple.

I find that if I have a proper breakfast (cereal/eggs/toast/pancakes), I get hungrier earlier in the day??

This morning I had a sandwich made with homemade bread, goat cheese and sliced apple. It was delicious and I think it will be my autumn breakfast from now on :)

This morning I had two slices of sourdough toast with sliced tomato and salt and pepper, and made poached eggs with wilted spinach on sourdough for my husband.

Other weekday regulars are Weetbix, milk and honey, porridge with brown sugar, or Nutrigrain with milk.

Weekends are usually scrambled eggs or French toast.

Most of this week its been left over Shaksuka with new eggs added each morning (think spicy tomatoes which you cook eggs in). I am using tortilla's as my bread but my husband used pitas.

Another common one for weekdays is homemade refried black beans, a little cheese, scrambled eggs and a little sour cream in a tortilla for a breakfast burrito.

Another staple but usually for the weekends is eggs and potato scramble. The other weekend staple is German Baby (think oven pancake) with some sort of fruit on the bottom (pears, apples and bananas have all been used).

Since I get up fairly early but don't eat immediately, breakfast tends to be a little fancier everyday for me than it is for others.

+1 for oatmeal and peanut butter on work days, along with free coffee at work.

On weekends I make creamy scrambled eggs, toast and coffee in my French Press.

Gordon Ramsay's recipe:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUP7U5vTMM0

I don't add as much butter, instead one small pat into the pan with 2-3 eggs, mixing continually over very low heat.  Even without creme fraiche, it's still really creamy if you cook it super slow (3 minutes-ish?).  I usually eat them plain and they are delicious, but mild in flavor without salt (don't tell Gordon I don't always season my food...)

Pretty much every week day it is 3 eggs.  Some weekends bacon and eggs.  Boring I know.

Probably need to start going with some oatmeal and raisins as eggs are getting costly.

Odwalla Strawberry protein shake.  I'm a big breakfast person but I've simply been too tired/lazy to cook for a while now.  I've been drinking these for breakfast for like going on a month.  Anyone know if they're "healthy"?  I sure hope they are.  But this expense is ridiculous.  Gotta drop these things pronto and starting boiling some eggs over the weekends.

She's a Weetbix kid. :)

A few years ago my husband and I were overseas for six weeks for work. We were travelling through Israel and Palestine and had been warned not to eat the fruit or drink the milk in certain places. All I wanted for breakfast was Weetbix. My husband showed me this ad and I nearly cried.

That's true for me too. The more you eat, more hungry you get.

My typical morning breakfast is a mix of:

- puffed brown rice (or puffed kamut)
- some kind of nut (pecan, almond, hazelnut, or walnut)
- some kind of seed (pumpkin, sunflower, or chia)
- shredded coconut (optional depending on availability - I have a bunch of bags in the freezer from my building's coconut crop this summer)
- some kind of fruit (usually strawberries with optional blueberries, but could also be peaches, bananas, mango, anything that goes well with yogurt)
- yogurt (I go whole milk organic on this one, and please don't give me any of that Greek stuff - yuk)

This is my breakfast staple. I mix it all up and eat it on the way to work while I am driving (don't tell anyone). I vary up the grain, nut, seed, and fruit combinations depending on my mood and what I have available. I like to keep it varied.

On weekends or other weekdays I may vary it up a bit with French toast, almond milk fruit smoothies, omelettes, nut butter on rice cakes, oatmeal, quinoa "oatmeal".

The same thing I have every day for breakfast - soupy rice with pork and greens.  Volumetric, tasty, filling, healthful.

Recipe? Do you cook it in bulk then reheat?

Sounds like it could be good!

Bracken_Joy, it is really good!  I make a bunch of rice at a time in my rice cooker.  For breakfast, I dice up a slice of bacon and a rehydrated dried shiitake mushroom.  Stir-fry them in a wok with some oil.  When the bacon is crisp, add 2 cups of chicken broth and 1/2 cup cooked rice.  Add a bit of salt if needed.  Then add in as many greens as you can fit in the wok (I usually use at least 3 cups of spinach, arugula, choy sum, napa cabbage, or chard).  When the greens are wilted, pour the soupy rice into a bowl and enjoy!

I bet poaching an egg into the middle of that would be out of this world! Scheming now....

Lately I've been experimenting with egg bakes. Easier than making an omelette for hurried morning work commutes.

Mix egg, almond milk, some kind of veggies, and bake in a casserole dish. After cooling cut it in squares. Freezable for future consumption. Reheat in microwave, oven, or in a pan. Take it with you for a mobile breakfast or eat at home. Always with a side fruit. It's not breakfast for me without fruit.

Bracken_Joy, adding a poached egg would indeed kick it up a notch.  Hmm.  Thinking of trying that tomorrow...

Coffee and avocado toast :)

Is avocado toast just avocado on toast? Or is there more to this?

I usually have a large bowl of steel cut oats (cooked in slow cooker). I add a chopped up banana and raspberries (frozen from the garden or later in the year from the store), 2 tablespoons of flaxseed meal, and a ton of cinnamon. I microwave it so the banana/raspbs are warm. I also make espresso on ice with water added to it (an Americano). To me, it's the most delicious breakfast ever. I eat really early, so I usually have second breakfast, after I've biked into work, around 9:30 or 10:00 (usually an apple/piece of free fruit and some almonds).

Today, I had cucumber muffins (whole wheat flour, blended cukes, 3 eggs, cinnamon, vanilla extract, blended banana for sweetener, apple sauce instead of oil, chopped walnuts) with extra cinnamon on top and warmed raspberries that I spread on the muffin like a jam. Yum!

4 egg whites on a piece of dry whole wheat toast. And some multi-vitamins.

This is about as exciting as breakfasts get for me these days. Cheese may as well not exist at all. I miss you cheese. :/

Yup. Sprinkle on some sea salt if you're feelin' real fancy.

Today's whole-groat slow-cooked oatmeal was garnished with hemp hearts and dried cherries.

I also finished the last of my   First batch of home-roasted coffee. So much smoother than what I'm used to!
