I usually have:
bowl of cereal with milk
cup of yogurt
piece of fruit
When they're in season, I also like to have blueberries on my cereal. On the weekends, I have a maple-flavored pork sausage patty as well.

Black pudding is one of the few things I have not finished when it was on a plate in front of me. The taste is fine but the texture doesn't do it for me.
I have real breakfast just on weekends, then it is usually a tortilla with potatoes or just with eggs, ham, crispy bacon, all kind of cheese and I always need some cold meat. White bread of course and coffee.
In the week, just coffee and cigarettes, maybe a toast if I am really hungry, then up to work and waiting for launch.
traditionally, cup of coffee and a cigarette, since I stopped smoking it's just a cup of coffee

I find it really difficult to eat before about 11 in the am so I very seldom eat breakfast.

COFFEE! And some smokes, usually. I'm with Ivan. On the weekends I may have some eggs and bacon with toast to soak up my coffee, but not always!

Contribute however you can!
Wholemeal spelt toast with avocado
Chai herbal tea (gave up coffee about 4 months ago)
mmmm, breakfast this morning was a salmon burger slathered in this strange but very tasty kale and tomato relish I mixed up last night with some cabbage as the bun. I wish I had more for lunch and I wonder if I will ever be able recreate this relish. I have no idea what seasonings went into it as I was a bit tipsy when I made it!
Another coffee only person here (I don't like eating early in the day).
I usually quit drinking beer around 5 am or so and pass out in front of my laptop.
^ That sounds like a really late dinner.
I heard breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I think you folks who miss it out really should rethink. It also seems to be the best time of the day to indulge in all the greasy animal-fat stuff like the traditional English breakfast. Not bad really except for black pudding which my dad loved but I hated.
That said, I discovered 20 years ago that what my body really wanted in the morning was Fruit Yogurt Musli - just like what they'd serve in guesthouses in Bali or Nepal.
So, pretty much every day:
half an orange
1/3 of a biggish apple
good serving of yogurt on top
couple of tablespoons of musli on that
plus a big pot of tea - 3 or 4 cups of ceylon tea with milk (but no sugar, though all that fruit/musli stuff is sweet enough)
...seems to work pretty well for me, but it's basically whatever you're used to.
Your body can adjust to almost anything if you give it a chance.
sounds good john! i'll try it out sometime. currently i don't have breakfast because i get up (07.00), under the shower, then out. i hate hanging around the house when i need to go do something. i eat my breakfast at 10.00 or something. still wonder how i can keep that up with no food but it works
most morning a decaf coffee with cream, sometimes just water.
Around 11 I usually have bacon and scrambled eggs, sometimes an omelet, or of course leftovers!
just call me...
For me cup of coffee and couple of chocolate biscuits is enough...
Exactly same case! GJ for quiting smoking as well
