    I’ve come to the conclusion that one of the worst things for breakfast is breakfast cereal! Never fills me up, full of salt and sugar and there are much nicer alternatives, e.g. toast, porridge, eggs in various forms, bacon, full fry up. Muesli is ok, but takes effing ages to eat. Apparently muesli with milk is wrong, it should be soaked in orange juice or similar overnight… that’s what the Swiss do, who invented it

    That’s a bit of a generalisation, as there are some decent cereals out there.

    Weetabix, Fruit & Fibre, Bran Flakes etc.

    I think they have their place as long as you steer clear of the boxes which are essentially sugar with some free crispy bits.

    Small bowl of granola type stuff before the ride to work during the week. Going to try and make my own, can’t seem to find one that’s just right!

    Made a batch of pain aux raisins from one of Paul Hollywood’s books last weekend that were ace, bunged a load in the freezer ready to take out and leave to defrost overnight ready for the morning 8)

    Cheers,

    I’ve previously eaten Weetabix for years, it still has a fair amount of salt and sugar in it.

    I used to eat some cereal then toast and jam or marmite. Then about 8 months ago was out of milk so just had the usual toast and noticed that I didn’t miss the cereal so just carried on without it ever since. If I ever had just cereal, I’d get rumblings about 11am that only having lunch would stop.

    Also found that by eating a bit more fruit everyday I didn’t miss the fibre benefits of Weetabix

    Was looking at this recipe yesterday, do they freeze ok? Might have to work on my pastry skills though, did it turn out ok on the first attempt? Are you a seasoned pastry chef?

    The first pastries I made were his recipes for our girl’s 1st birthday party- came out really well- though making 70 odd croissants and Danishes takes a fair bit of time! The recipes are really easy to follow. Also made his Savoie bread last weekend- bacon and cheese in a loaf- need I say more!

    At the risk of coming over all nationalist, I prefer a good example of the full Scottish to the English equivalent. Tattie scone beats the fried bread for me.

    An Ulster fry and a pint of tea

    Surely if ever there were an argument for the Union, this must be it. Ulster, Scottish, English – we make the greatest breakfasts. (Not sure what the Welsh version is, which could sink my theory I suppose…)

    Doesn’t it involve cockles?!?

    I normally have a big bowl of Coco Pops…

    Or if I’m late raisin toast or muffin and a coffee in the office.

    This week I was working away and there was only a bakery open at 5am, so I had a ham and cheese pie (all pies iin Aus come with mince beef plus filling) and a can of coke…

    Fruit & fibre and bran flakes still seem to have a fair bit of sugar in them. Shame as theyre quite tasty. The only ones that seem ok for sugar are shredded wheat and plain porridge oats :\ even all bran has quite a bit added I believe.

    I think you could be onto something here. I’ll kick it off with Soda Farls and potato bread (known as fadge in Ulster) from here. Add to this from your region and we will have the ultimate UK cooked breakfast. No beans allowed however.

    2 slices of toast with marmalade. And several mugs of tea. Speaking of which, it’s about time for another mug.

    Nothing else permitted, I’m trying to lose[/I] weight

    You’ll find it easier to lose weight if you have eggs rather than toast, I reckon.

    Possibly but it’s better than a fry up. Quicker too

    How do you make flax seed porridge ?

    I have porridge made with added quinoa flakes, mixed seeds and oat bran – and fresh fruit piled on top. We have fresh warm ‘breakfast’ cake once a week or homemade waffles 😀 – all gluten free. Plus a big mug of fresh coffee.

    Grind up some flax seed, beat an egg, mix, add some water to help mix and microwave it. I haven’t had it for ages but I remember it being alright sprinkled with cinnamon and some raspberries and cream mixed in.

    That being said it was my regular breakfast when I was on a keto diet and I thought it was ok, but since returning to a “normal” diet I reckon standard porridge fills me up as much if not more. And tastes better.

    mikewsmith whats that on top of your breakfast? eggs benedict? cheese sauce?
    never tried EB but cheese sauce used to feature on (the quite rare) cooked breakfasts at my parents house.

    I’d normally reject potato products on a breakfast but that breaky does look pretty damn fine.

    oh and porridge with raisins work days (riding days too) for me. Cheap, filling and probably better for me than the cereal, ~pint of milk and loads of sugar I used to have.

    Heat some olive oil in a pan. Crack in two eggs, pinch of black pepper and a good pinch of chili flakes. Scramble and serve on bagel. Quick, easy and contains chilis. What’s not to like?

    The lack of salt for a start…eggs need salt.

    eggs benedict normally comes with a Hollandaise sauce

    Seaweed = Lavabread thats the Welsh contribution to the breakfast, I love the stuff and would eat it at least twice a week when I was in Swansea. Cant get it in wurzel land 🙁

    Where is the white pudding in tht Ulster breakfast or is white pudding an Eire thing?

    Pigface white pudding is an Eire thing however given that we said an Ulster Fry we can include it on behalf of Donegal, Cavan and Monaghan 😀

    A small amount in a big bowl of every cerial in the cupboard.

    Love a full english but never want to eat it if I cooked it.

    Half a pint of Moka, followed by corn flakes with raw oats mixed in. Filling, but it does make you fart a lot.

    berry granola with chopped banana, porridge with manuka honey in the winter. Naga for all seasons.

    Hot from the oven breakfast cake, served with strawberries with chocolate balsamic sauce and pepper, just finished = yum! 😀

    Burp !!!
