breakfast... without eggs!

What do you guys usually have for breakfast...
So far i have had sausage & with 1 egg and 1 egg white
for the past two days.

i'm actually surprised i was able to have it twice already, I really dont like eggs but i put some tapatio and cheese and its okay. But i am really looking for something else to subsitute.. Maybe i need to make bigger meals usually i try to make dinner last two days. At least enough for dinner and the next days lunch.

I eat eggs for any meal, not just breakfast. I do fried or scrambled eggs with bacon, oopsies, omelettes, quiche, or poached eggs over sauteed veg or ground beef.

but you can be creative and eat any food for breakfast. have a chicken breast, have a steak. or you can just do a breakfast meal minus the eggs. like bacon with sauteed veggies.

For breakfast I often go with ground beef cooked in bacon fat in a cast iron cake pan, because it is quick and tasty. I also alternate with having organ meats by themselves or mixed in a few times per month. Eggs are great too. Normally leaving the yolks unbroken is suggested, so as to preserve the cholesterol. Otherwise the cholesterol will likely oxidize (free radicals) during cooking. Egg quality makes a enormous difference too. Storebought factory produced eggs are often allergenic because of the poor quality of food given to the hens.

Once they become pullets and start laying eggs, if they can get sunshine, grass/weeds and insects, that makes the eggs very tasty. It is a night and day difference between eggs produced by hens in those conditions vs the industrially produced supermarket eggs.

This is a good one my parents used to make as a kid

a 2 inch square of green pepper sliced very thinly in 2 inch strips
half a small onion (shallot size) cut into very thin strips again
1 small tomato cut into, you guessed it, thing strips

Fry that lot up in olive oil gently to soften and then add a chilli deseeded cut into the pan if you like spicy food. Whisk up one large egg (I substitute egg white for single cream) add plenty of salt and black pepper and then scramble the eggs with the vegetables all together and serve

Makes eating eggs a whole lot more pleasant as soon as you wake up

I'm not a huge fan of eggs either, I usually had a bit of single cream and lots of flat leaf parsley and have it with Cyprus cheese fried (Haloumi, Helim)

Actually sometimes I substitute a fried egg/scrambled egg with a thick slice of fried Cyprus cheese (half way between taste and texture of cheddar and fresh mozzarella balls) and have that with some fried bacon, sausage, mushrooms and tomato. Actually might have that tomorrow

I had leftover steak from last night and sauteed mushrooms for breakfast this morning. Yum! Also caramelized onions with meat is a tasty breakfast.

Cottage cheese mixed with stuff you like is good for breakfast. My favorite way is mixed with pepper and cherry tomatoes. DH likes berries mixed in with his. You could mix in sauteed veggies and that would be yummy too.

I used to make protein shakes for breakfast which were so tasty and filling. I used frozen strawberries, a scoop of vanilla protein powder, a few squirts of DaVinci Vanilla sugar free syrup, some ice cubes, and usually a raw egg (you can't taste it but it makes it foamy and adds protein), and about a half cup of either cottage cheese or ricotta cheese. Whiz that in your blender and it is tasty and delicious! If you don't want the frozen berries, you can just sub the sugar free syrup flavor of your choice. Or make it chocolate, with chocolate protein powder and about a tablespoon of cocoa powder and either vanilla or chocolate flavored syrup. I've also used chocolate flavored almond milk-the sugar free version of course. Adding a tablespoon of peanut butter is awesome too. Tweak around till you find the combos that tickle your tastebuds and fill your tummy.

There are lots of recipes for microwave coffee cup cakes, that are packed with protein and would make a good breakfast too.

Between exercise in the morning and having to leave the house before 6AM I don't have time to cook scrambled eggs or anything - unless I make crustless quiche on the weekend I usually have dinner for breakfast, MIM with cream cheese, or chia seed pudding, or a protein smoothie, or a bunless hamburger...mmm blue cheese bacon burger. YUM But as you climb the rungs you can do low carb yogurt, make a

Like I said in my post, you can make a shake without fruit. If you really want one reread it or there are tons of threads about protein shake recipes. If you're tired of eggs and meat it's a tasty alternative.
Have a good breakfast!

I don't eat eggs at all! My daily breakfast is 4 pieces of bacon, few slices of tomato with salt & pepper. If I am really hungry I add some cheese.

i tried linda's sue "easy rise breakfast" its baked and to test it out i made a 1/4 of the recipe and put it in a cupcake pan instead a regular pan. must say mine doesn't look too good, but very yummy and not very egg tasting.
