    I don’t eat breakfast as often... but I am from Alberta so you know I dig myself a good ole’ homemade pancakes, maple bacon and that good-good fried egg with the runny yolk but crispy bottom. Maybe get myself some pork sausages or if I feel extra get that Alberta beef steak. Sometimes a Timmy Ho egg and sausage on a biscuit... now I am hungry. But usually just tea... like everyday just tea.

    my diet is weird cos i love breakfast foods like eggs on toast or cereal all day every day and i always wake up really late so my breakfast turns into lunch and i just eat leftovers in the fridge from whatever i made for dinner the night before that i didnt end up eating cos im too lazy to cook in the morning and in the midst of me making dinner i end up craving toast or cereal. eat that for dinner instead and then eat what i made for dinner the next day for breakfast.
    and a luxury breakfast is porridge and toast that my parents and uncle makes just cos its really rare for them to make it and its amazing

    Savory oatmeal. I use a Tbsp of sesame paste (tahini), garlic, ginger, black pepper, soy sauce, and sliced green onions. If I have time, I add a fried egg on top :)

    Japanese breakfast looks so yummy and would be great for staying full and energized for hours. Here in Australia we often just go toast or cereal but a luxury/weekend breakfast would be something like eggs benedict or pancakes

    Typical breakfast: toast, eggs, yogurt.
    Atypical breakfast (which everyone thinks is strange): a dinner meal. Soup with rice. Stir fry. Noodle dishes. Or anything!
    I'm of the opinion that breakfast isn't a certain type of food, but rather just the time you are making the food. If I'm in the mood for mashed potatoes with gravy and it just happens to be 7AM - guess who's making mashed potatoes with gravy! :)
    Your breakfast looks amazing and I'm very jealous if your square pan.

    Japanese breakfast is great, the only thing for me is, that it doesn't go well with coffee for me and I really need my coffee in the morning. I really like some bread, some ham maybe, some scrabled eggs, some veggies and then my milk coffee.

    in my country they eat tortilla (corn flour + water fried) with american cheese and hojaldre (flour+ milk+salt and sugar+eggs fried) with onioned liver or cow stomach. Also many other things like sausage with sauce and hojaldre or bollo or empanada frita. Wide variety of foods.

    Well in Slovakia you can have literally anything for breakfast ... but the most traditional I think is slice of bread with butter slice of ham or cheese or both and raw vegetables (salted or not) on top of bread or not usually it is tomato and green pepper or cucumber. The second most cooked breakfast is scrumbled eggs with roasted veggies or raw on top. And the last is sweet tipe bread again with butter and jam with cacao or regular milk (hot milk or not).It is all like 5 minute meal cuz Slovak people (I don’t know why) are always busy people. And most of the parents don’t teach their kids how important breakfast is so yeah😌

    I don't really eat breakfast, but when I do it's usually cereal. I don't like bread too much (although Germany has fantastic bread!), and I'm too lazy to cut up fruit or prepare anything, so IF I decide to have something healthy I might eat a banana with my cereal. Luxury breakfast would be scrambled eggs, maybe some smoked fish or something... yum.

    I have raw oats with milk and raisins in the morning. That is very normal in Denmark where I live. A luxury breakfast in Denmark would be something called Rundstykker, which is a wheat bun, that is toasted in the oven until it gets crispy on the outside and then it is fluffy and warm in the middle. We eat those with butter and jam or cheese. :)

    I live in America but tbh I barely even eat cereal at school I usually get a breakfast bar (which is made with oatmeal and choco chips) and during the weekend (or days when schools out) I eat a better breakfast I sometimes make scrambled eggs with cheese mixed in and topped with hot sauce and I have sausage on the side and some sort of drink (maybe orange juice) sometimes my dad makes breakfast and it’s just regular fried eggs with sausage at toast and orange juice...sometimes when I’m alone in the morning and cook for my self I just find stuff to make (I’m never able to find my grandmas rice cooker) but I’m able to whip up something if I try hard enough

      Oh and half my family is Mexican so I eat different stuff over in Mexico when I go on trips there, we eat an assortment of meats and usually we have no utensils so we have shredded meat and tortillas a scoop it with the tortilla and just eat, sometimes we even go to our favorite tamale (I forgot how to spell -_-) place where we order tamales by the plate and they come out in mounds on plates and there’s an assortment of sauces and we just eat that for breakfast it’s sooo good

    In Ukraine: Kasha. I enjoy a bowl of rolled oatmeal with water and a pinch of salt, no sugar, blitzed in the microwave. A luxury would be to add sliced banana on top, twice a week I do this. This Japanese breakfast looks very labor-intensive which is strange since I thought people work 27 hours a day in Japan so when do they manage to prepare these elaborate culinary creations before heading into their offices? (O_o)

    In Germany we have "Brötchen", which is referred to as small breads, we add butter to it or cheese or ham or you can put on salami or jam, there are no limits! to that we would normally have a soft boiled egg, sometimes a croissant, and we drink coffee, tea or juice. Cereal or yoghurt is here really common as well. People in Germany are spliced into two groups: the ones that eat salty stuff on top of their Brötchen in the morning and the ones that only eat sweet stuff on top of it. I like both! :D
    I don't know if you like natto that much but I had it in Japan as well as a breakfast on my rice and I loved it. Added a whole other dimension of flavor to my breakfast tastes.

    I usually just have cottage cheese + fruit for breakfast! Or if I have time, I make a smoothie w a lot of spinach + whatever fruit/juice is on hand. I prefer having something sweet for breakfast bc it usually curbs my cravings later in the day waaaay better than if I had eaten something savory. For me, a luxury breakfast would be something really heavy with carbs and fats. Like idk some poached eggs with a side of French toast, or beignets (god I love beignets). Or eggs Benedict. Best Sunday breakfast everrrr 😩❤️💕

    I usually never have time for breakfast, my school starts at 7:30 AM so usually I don’t have breakfast but when I do it’s like a bagel with cream cheese or cereal. But a “luxury” breakfast for me is like bagels with cream cheese, eggs (cooked any way), and hash browns or home style potatoes... mm yummy

      Simon and Martina iv'e cooked tamagoyaki many times. Western style eggs are done till thy are slightly browned. Japanese style eggs are kept a pale yellow color. Turn down the heat after the oil heats up to about half it should still be very wet on one side and should not start to brown when u add the second batch. Then do the same on the other side to the point where it finishes cooking on he plate. You should get a pale yellow color without the orange or browning. It took me about 20 times cooking it before i got it right. I havent cooked it in about a year and a half and promise you i would f it up if i tried rn. It is not easy.

    I'm Occidental and vegan, so I make my own cereal mix (to avoid the horrible amount of added sugars you find in industrial cereal preparations like mueslis): it contains wheat, oats, barley, rice flakes, and spelt. On top of that, I add unsprouted beans (which are excellent for your health and actually tasty), dried fruits (mostly berries to eliminate toxins), a fresh banana, and finally, I pour some almond milk or almond milk based yoghurt on the whole preparation. I usually eat that with tea and additional fresh fruits.
    One bowl fills your for at least 4 hours, and it's delicious and easy to make. Also, fruits and cereals are not expensive in my country, so, I can afford it.
