… for hot breakfast. We seem to have got into a bit of a rut with daughter, where it's either bacon OR sausages OR American pancakes. She doesn't like scrambled eggs, sadly. Anyway, I'd like to add some more things to my repertoire. What hot breakfasts do YOU eat?

(FCC report later this evening for those anxiously awaiting it, btw)

Porridge.
Shakshouka is great, though you need a fair amount of time to cook it.
Fritatta. Lots of options to customise it to taste.

+1 for porridge. Oat So Simple is easy, and if you buy the individually wrapped sachet you can even use the packet to measure out the milk. No faffing around with jugs and stuff.

Basically it's eggs poached in a spicy(ish) tomato sauce. I have lost my original recipe, but this looks like it, except I don't bother with the parsley or coriander and I've never made it with olives. A bit of feta (or Lancashire or Wensleydale!) goes nicely with it, though.

I don't, but haggis, black pudding, square/Lorne sausage and omelette all occur to me as possible hot breakfast foods.

Most common for me is marmalade on toast, but that's not really what you were thinking of, is it?

Poached eggs if you either know the trick for poaching in a pan of water or have a poacher and can face washing it (like most kitchen toys, they're a bugger to get clean)

Poached eggs on toast... mmmm yum. Much better than boiled-egg-and-soldiers. You can add things as well - smoked salmon works pretty well, for instance.

Fish. Kedgeree is great, and you can make it up in quantity (ie when you have time; it's an hour of cooking) and it will survive freeze-and-microwave-reheat.

Porridge. Do omelettes count as scrambled egg? That or poached eggs (I don't mind cleaning the silicon egg-poacher things!) are about all I eat hot-breakfast-wise,otherwis it's fruit and/or yogurt.

Bloody hell. Gadsden mentioned Kedgeree and I thought I was going to be the first to do so. I'm in the huff now.

Seriously, I have omelette and beans quite a lot cos they are free food on Slimming World. Bob has omelette and roasted vegetables yuck).

I also do left over potatoes sliced and roasted with a bit of fry-light (also free on Slimming World) with poached eggs.

Kippers and golden cutlets are other options.

I didn't mention kedgeree, but I thought about it quietly, modestly, and ineffectually, so I'm in the huff with both of you now!

Toasted bread or crumpets.

Fried egg on a crumpet (I use a little silicone thing to corral the egg so it's the right size to sit on a crumpet).

Boiled eggs with buttery toast fingers.

When I want a hot breakfast, I eat porridge or bacon sandwiches.

My 12 year-old son has been eating 6 fish fingers for breakfast every day since October.

He has just suggested ham and cheese toasted sandwiches as a possibility if that helps?

Or, fried eggs, hot tomatoey sauce and a tortilla wrap. I tend to make a bucket of tom sauce in advance and just flip it onto the egg when done.

Tom sauce has onions, garlic (some people hate this at breakfast, they are wrong), chili peppers, sometimes olives, depending on how I feel. You could just do it with actual hot sauce on the egg, but then I'd slice an avocado into the wrap too.

Well, waffles WITHOUT eggs then.

I dunno, bacon is always a winner (unless you don't do pork/meat in general). Hash browns. Grits (do you have grits in the UK? They're hard enough to find outside of the southeast in other parts of the US so....) Baked apples or pears or something like that. My mother used to make a kind of Irish soda bread sometimes, it was pretty good out of the oven with some butter. Leftover fried chicken is actually pretty good for breakfast, and of course the breakfast of champions is leftover pizza. XD

it's like cornbread without the bread part. good with butter or better yet cheese on top.

or if you're some stuck up shit, it's sold with a mark up and labeled "polenta" or whatever. although in my experience actual polenta is dryer and denser than real grits.

(also shrimp and grits, done properly, is Food of the Gods, but it's not really a breakfasty food)

Quinoa pudding with milk or nutmilk, dried fruit, and/or a floral flavor such as almond or rose.

Oatmeal with maple syrup, cinnamon, dried fruit, and chopped nuts.

Waffles with fresh fruit and cream.

Hard boiled eggs.

Homemade applesauce.

Veggie sausage and toast with REAL jam or marmalade.

Toast with melted cheese and herbs (aka 'cheese dream').

Supper leftovers.

(For me, these are all holiday or weekend occurrences; I eat cereal or cereal bars or drink smoothies in the morning all week, assuming I manage to eat.)

Yay!

Thinking back, I ate a lot of warm melty nut butter on toast as a kid, too. A lovely crunch.

Also if she doesn't like kedgeree but you like the concept you could try 'vedgeree', which is a Hugh Ferneley Whittingstall concept that's meant to be a vegetarian version of kedgeree. Takes ages though so probably not one for breakfast, which begs the question of why I'm writing this, but here's the recipe anyway: https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2012/oct/21/hugh-fearnley-whittingstall-recipes-veg-every-day

I like egg-in-the-hole with sourdough bread, fried in butter. I also tend towards microwave burritos, at any hour. Pizza is a bit tomato-y, alas...

Oh! And I've been doing BBQ toast -- a non-sweet bread, butter, and bbq sauce, put under a broiler until bubbly.

Broiler is the one with heat coming down from the top quite close, and metal underneath. Over here it's the drawer full of fire under the cooker, or a toaster oven.
