A classic in Italy: cornetto e cappuccino :bigsmile:

Biscuits and gravy…drool - I SO wish I could get that here!

Me, I love a full English breakfast - bacon, egg, sausage, fried bread, mushrooms and baked beans. Otherwise known as a heart attack on a plate :bigsmile:

If I’m feeling in need of something a little healthier - poached eggs, grilled bacon and toast.

Most days I just have a bowl of cereal though. The Full English happens very, very rarely!

EDIT: Apple butter sounds interesting!


#4

Two slices of toast and a cup of black tea is my usual and I have a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice as well at the weekend. :slight_smile:

Bacon and eggs (cooked any style) ,grits and gravy or biscuits and gravy. However it is usually a bowl of cereal or peanut butter on toast.


#6

I seldom have my favorite as it is the Palace Station Buffet in Las Vegas .
The basics on it are steak or porkchops(they seem to alternate these) , fried eggs over medium , Mandrian oranges (instead of orange juice) , & they have a great little chocolate pastry that looks like a caboose. Since it’s a all you can eat buffett anything else that looks good.
For a more normal weekend breakfast: Coffee ,toast or bisquits . 2 eggs fried medium ,
patty sausage topped with Tabasco sauce , hash brown potatoes topped with gravy & some on the bisquits too . End with some jelly on toast & coffee.

“Bisquits” - that reminds me of the Fox’s Biscuits commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wP0mXUCqOCc

Just a bit of gentle ribbing :flower:, I love that ad :bigsmile:

I’ve seen the word bisquits or biscuits spelled both ways in cookbooks I just like the q version. :slight_smile:

I liked the Fox’s Biscuits commercial .

I know you Brits call what Americans call cookies biscuits .
What do you call what Americans call biscuits ?

The closest we have to your biscuits is like a plain scone. But we don’t get the real thing (fluffier US-style biscuits) here :sad:

Maybe I’ll ask for donations LOL! But they might go off before they got here :doh:


#10

It all depends on who is cooking on what kind of flour is used we just use a bisquick mix.see attackment

#11

I guess you will just have to learn to make them from a recipe .
I can tell you from personal experence it will take several tries before they are good .
At least it did me.
I usually just buy the refrigerated type . Pilsbury are the best.
Both the Grands & regular size. I like the “flaky” ones but this is misleading as they actually have several thin layers . I think this has to be machine done . I don’t know how you would do it at home.

EDIT : I was typing when marloyd was posting . For a beginner Bisquick is a good product .
It actually makes pretty good biscuits.

Bisquick - I’ll have to see if I can find it or something similar - thanks guys! :slight_smile:

Yeah they’re like scones and as you know ‘gravy’ isn’t the same thing over here either. :slight_smile:

The first time I was in the US I read ‘biscuits smothered in gravy’ on the Denny’s menu and went “What!!!” :eek::bigsmile:

For the benefit of those in the US that aren’t quite sure why that was such a shock to me, that means ‘cookies smothered in a roast meat style gravy’ over here. :bigsmile:

I want chocolate cookies with that . :bigsmile: :wink:

Here if your lucky it is a sausage milk gravy & Southern bisquits like in the picture in marloyd’s #1 post.

We do use the roast meat style gravy with some foods also.


#15

Usually i have no breakfast at all, because i don’t want to spend time for it. But sometimes i bake some croissants or a freaking huge omelet with all kinds of spices and herbs in it.


#16

I usually don’t cook but I do make a good omelet I use peppers,mushrooms,onions,and sheaded cheese two or three different kinds.first I cook the veggies in a pan than mix a little milk and two eggs and salt and pepper. in a dish and beat it up and but in another pan w/ lid when done add the veggies and cheese and flip over


#17

Mmm, my mum makes a great omelette - shame I don’t live at home anymore! :sad:

I think an omelette would be a bit heavy for me for breakfast as I like something light.

Having said that if someone offered me a fry up I think I’d find it hard to turn that down. :p:bigsmile:

I’m not much on omelette fan but my brother really likes them .
He likes the hot spicey Western type .

I thought this might be interesting a comparison of a couple of [B]simple[/B] scone & biscuit recipes . There are literally thousands of variations on the internet .
They are not very different . I think scones would work fine with milk gravy for breakfast .
