I tend to have leftover takeaway for breakfast eg cold pizza/Chinese/Indian. This morning I had a tuna mayo & cucumber sandwich. Probably my oddest breakfast was Black Forest Gateau the morning after my Auntie’s 2nd wedding. It was made by my Mum’s cousin, a professional chef, and was absolutely delicious.

I love an egg Mayo sandwich with a Diet Coke on a hangover for breakfast.

It's not that different. It's only in Western countries have we become conditioned to cereal etc for breakfast thanks to the likes of Kelloggs etc. In SE Asian countries and India typical savoury breakfasts are common and often more nutrient dense.

I have something that people in UK may think strange for breakfast all the time. Different culture has different norm.
Left over meals and cakes for breakfast isn't that strange to me at all.

Food is food! I prefer non breakfast items and happily do stir fries. I think odd, to me, would be soup. I almost never eat soup anyway, but soup for breakfast would be odd to me!
TheGirlWhoLived · 14/05/2022 09:47
My dd has cheese, chicken and fruit for breakfast! She’s an odd bod though
SunshineLollipopsAndRainbows · 14/05/2022 09:53
I sometimes have cold roasted chicken breasts.

I prefer savoury breakfasts.
One staple (if not working in the office!) is mashed smoked oysters (from the tin) on toast.
I also really like cold meats, salad vegetables and cheese. (Shades of happy Mediterranean holidays). My FIl used to have the same thing every morning. Cold baked ham. Hunk of chddar cheese. Dark rye bread and marmalade. Food of the Gods, and has become our Christmas breakfast staple.

I had profiteroles for breakfast today and yesterday (and probably will tomorrow!) but don't think that is overly strange.
I don't really like normal breakfast type foods so happily eat whatever is lying about in the fridge instead.

I've just said no to egg, bacon and sausage on toast because I weighed myself yesterday and I'm doing really well, so had a ham roll instead. You're only breaking your fast, so really you can have whatever you want.
Mr Kellogs did a great job on us.

I think cereal is weird (and revolting) Coffee is essential though
emerald226 · 14/05/2022 10:03
I don't really like breakfast food so just eat whatever's in the fridge
GETTINGLIKEMYMOTHER · 14/05/2022 10:05
The other day I had leftover macaroni (cheese) pie, warmed up in the microwave. Very nice it was, too.
IbizaToTheNorfolkBroads · 14/05/2022 10:07
Ds has just had left over pizza and a crème egg.
i offered him scramble eggs; toast, fruit and cereal was also available.
DressingGownofDoom · 14/05/2022 10:09
I occasionally make DS pasta before school.
Id love one of those hotel continental breakfasts right now
Comedycook · 14/05/2022 10:11
I hate cereal and toast...Its like eating cardboard. I never ate breakfast as a child because I hated them.
My Ideal breakfast is smoked salmon and eggs.
I don't think cake for breakfast is weird...no more so than a Danish pastry
StuckInTheMiddleOfNowhere · 14/05/2022 10:13
Ive had gatueaux , cheesecake allsorts like that if its there i have to have it . (i would daily too haha)
Ive been known to have pick n mix, chocolate often too.
Plus leftover pizza etc.
My dsis often has tuna sandwich
FleeceNavidadfromtheSheep · 14/05/2022 10:29
Favourite is leftover Christmas pudding slathered with brandy butter, dipped in double cream.
TheBermudaTriangle · 14/05/2022 10:37
Completely agree @Takealoadoff - since living in SE Asia, I love a savoury breakfast. Nothing really strange - fishball noodle soup with plenty of chilli, or paratha with curry both really hit the spot!
MrsGinaHarrison87 · 14/05/2022 10:37
I don't like cereal or toast so often just make a sandwich or eat a pack of sushi after I get back from dropping the kids at school. I don't see the point in eating typical breakfast stuff if it's not what you like.
SillyLittleBiscuit · 14/05/2022 10:49
I’m currently eating a lot of Brussel sprout and cheese omelettes which people find odd.
iklboo · 14/05/2022 11:05
I love different cooked meats, cheese, bread etc for breakfast. I'd rather have that than toast, cereal or a fry up.
knowinglesseveryday · 14/05/2022 11:43
Years ago we had an aupair for a few years. She always ate protein, fruit, veg and occasionally rolls for breakfast and thought it was odd we basically ate sugar.
MrsMoastyToasty · 14/05/2022 11:48
DS regularly has tinned ravioli (has to be heinz). It's about the only thing that fills him up for more than 5 minutes.
Bonjovispjs · 14/05/2022 12:04
I had shepherds pie for breakfast once, it was just what I fancied at the time😊
pansexualanteater · 14/05/2022 12:06
Leftover saag aloo and naan, eaten in the bath.
