Breakfast is the first meal you eat after waking up after a proper sleep. If I wake at 3pm and grab a pack of crisps because I'm starved, that's the food I broke my fast with.

Your obsession with butter is getting a bit OTT now y'know.

There's nowt wrong with butter, but I am afraid I am inclined to agree with Mat here.

And I only have a fried breakfast on a Sunday. Does my toast and cereal the rest of the week not count, despite the butter they contain?

I don't like fried breakfasts, so apparently I never eat breakfast. :)

There's an opportunity here for a philosophical discourse about the nature of breakfast. Is it merely a descriptor of whatever food is eaten at a certain time of the day, or a descriptor of a certain type of food, whatever time of day it is eaten? And does the Platonic ideal form of breakfast include black pudding?

I'm afraid you're simply wrong on the black pudding issue. Sausages (Cumberland), bacon (unsmoked), eggs (fried, scrambled, or both), toast, fried bread, multiple cups coffee. Baked beans, fried potatoes, and hash browns are all acceptable but unnecessary. Tomatoes, mushrooms, and black pudding are all heretical false additions.

I can't accept a definition of breakfast that means some people can never have breakfast because dairy does bad things to them.

I'm of the "whatever you eat first in the morning" school, which for me is usually yogurt but can also be leftover of whatever I had for supper a day or two earlier, or a boiled egg, or a number of other things that have protein and don't require me to do anything complicated before breakfast.

I'm in your camp, but because I'm vegan.

Breakfast for me is usually a muffin, but on the weekends I may make myself a tofu scramble with potatoes and vegan sausage—or some variation thereof.

And coffee—but coffee is an "anytime" drink.

Breakfast is the meal without which having eaten, I am liable to kill people.

Butter is for the win.
