Ten On Tuesday

Whether you know it or not, there’s a lot of pressure that goes with this whole Ten on Tuesday thing. Every week I have to come up with a topic. Every.week. It’s not easy, dear readers. This week’s topic, though, came to me yesterday morning when I was making breakfast for Dale and I – something that I only get to do on weekends, holidays or vacations. And you know, food topics are always big hits with the Ten on Tuesday crowd so here we go: 10 Favorite Breakfast Foods.

  1. Eggs. I mean, really, you can scramble them or fry them, make an omelet or poach them . . . it goes on and on.
  2. Bacon. It’s not just for breakfast, of course, but it’s a great way to start the day.
  3. Oatmeal. I am one of those people who really like oatmeal. Instant is my standard breakfast on a work day but I do love the old-fashioned kind the best.
  4. Greek Yogurt. Another stand by work day breakfast for me.
  5. Waffles. Not those giant belgian things but a good old-fashioned waffle from my mom’s waffle iron. We used to have those for Sunday supper a lot, too.
  6. Sausage. I actually prefer sausage if I’m having
  7. Pancakes. The maple syrup has to be the real deal, though, and it has to be heated.
  8. Fresh fruit. It’s how you justify the bacon, eggs, pancakes, waffles and sausage!
  9. Jelly donuts. That is a rare treat in my world now but I do love a good fresh jelly donut.
  10. Hash browns. Extra crispy. Mmmmmmmmm.

Now I’m hungry for another breakfast! How about you? What do you like to have for breakfast? Be sure and add your link if you wrote a post for today. As always, if you’d like to sign up for the Ten on Tuesday email just click here.

    I am suddenly so dissatisfied with my measly little breakfast this morning. (This topic will leave my mouth watering all day.)

    Oranges. Must have my daily orange. Frittata with sweet potatoes! Amadama bread (a treat), chicken jalapeño sausage, french omelet. Breakfast is a wonderful meal, but we rarely have time to do much other than eat a hard cooked egg to eat while we run out the door!

    Each morning I usually eat fruit and nonfat Greek yogurt with granola sprinkled on top. On special occasions we eat bagels with lox, cream cheese and red onion alongside scrambled eggs.

    I want to eat breakfast with Margene! Or maybe one of those waffles from your Mom’s waffle maker…well done with butter? Fun topic today Carole!

    Hummm…there’s no treat like a yummy, leisurely breakfast! I do not like pancakes or eaffles for breakfast because the carbs don’t agree with me. So, breakfast for dinner is great. Guilty pleasure–McDonald’s hash browns (gross, huh?).

    Breakfast is my favorite meal … and I love to cook it, but like you only can do that on the weekends or vacation! Usually I’ll make egg scrambles with veggies & ham, home fries with onion, and some sort of toast or biscuit. I also love cottage cheese, especially the one with chives or pineapple in it. If we’re out to eat somewhere, I’ll generally order eggs benedict, and I love to try new variations of it!

    I just recently signed up for your 10 on Tuesdays. And want to say I really appreciate you doing this for all of us! I’m constantly trying to come up with questions to post to the yahoo bookgroups I run – to keep conversation flowing. After 12 years of doing it, my brain is fried – LOL! So I feel your pressure!

    I always do cold cereal but recently found an overnight slow cooker recipe for apples and oatmeal. I need to find that back and try it out….

    You should totally make your own ‘instant’ oatmeal. Twice as much water as oats (I use the old-fashioned, not the quick). Microwave, stirring once in the middle (I do 90 seconds, stir, then 2 min). Stir in whatever you’d like – I add a little brown sugar, cinammon & raisins. Cooked apples are really good too. Just as fast as instant and you can control the amount of sugar.
