Delicious and popular Breakfast menu's

Popular Breakfast menus

Breakfast is considered to be the most important meal of the day. Experts from far and wide consider breakfast the most important meal of the day. I tend to agree for when the few occasions that I have gone without breakfast only a couple of hours into the day i will suffer hunger pangs and be in a mild panic state. Breakfast is needed because after a long sleep in which you have actually fasted you need energy for the challenges ahead in the day. Without a good breakfast you may not be able to perform the activities with the same energy and vitality that might be needed.So if your going to have breakfast everyday as you should then you might as well make it a good one. Ideally you should keep the saturated fats down to a minimum and the carbohydrates and proteins high. Carbohydrates are useful for energy whereas protein is useful for repairing damages muscle tissue which get damaged just by moving.

To start with I try and eat fruit at one stage I use to have Grapefruit everyday. There used to be a tinned variety which I used to love. Nowadays I tend to eat other fruit such as bananas and fruit shakes made of say strawberries, soy milk, Ice and yogurt. Other times I like to have fruit salad or even blueberries.

One of my favourite breakfast is Eggs Benedict which consists basically of a toasted muffin poached eggs and a hollandaise sauce with two asparagus leaves lightly poached as well and a small strip of bacon. The version in the photograph smoked or fresh salmon slices are used in a beautifully tasty variation.

Modern cooking techniques allow you to cook poached eggs in a number of ways. Microwave them in a container designed for poaching eggs In a microwave. Poaching them in a steamer designed for poaching eggs. Or you can drop eggs carefully into boiling water and carefully cook them and then remove them using a spoon. A very important tip to get the taste and texture just right to slightly under cook them. The yolks should still be partially slightly runny so you need to closely supervise the cooking process.

      Sorry me old Son, not convinced that all this modern politically correct ..."Ideally you should keep the saturated fats down to a minimum..." rubbish. It maybe be healthy but it is hardly a substitute for a 'Good Old Fry Up.'

      If you want to see a REAL Breakfast go take a look at Izzy's Hub on the subject she knows what I'm talking about.

      You can feel your arteries harden just looking at the picture...!

      A quick aside to your Hub, did you know that the word Breakfast is literal ? “Break Fast, ” to break the fast endured during the night.

      Interesting! Well it almost seems like breakfasts aren't complete without eggs (in whichever way we prepare it). If I'll have a breakfast like that one on your photo, I would absolutely be delighted to try! :-)
