After that super healthy round up atMadhuli’s Foodcourt, Weekend Breakfast Blogging goes to A Fridge Full of Food where Glenna takes on as hostess for August. The theme is ‘Ethnic breakfasts‘. Idea is to try something different from your own regional cuisine, be it the breads, the coffee or any other breakfast dishes.
If there was a world breakfast menu, it would read somewhat like this:
Australia – Vegemite on toast with fruit, cereal and juice.
China – Steamed stuffed buns, fried tofu, cellofane noodles, rice congee with soy milk or tea.
Switzerland – Cold cuts, cheese, yoghurt, prepared fruit, butter, croissants bread/rolls.
Italy – Caffè e latte with rolls, butter, jam and biscotti
Spain – Chocolate con churros — a thick, sweet hot chocolate with Spanish-style fritters, which are extruded sticks of doughnut like dough with a star-shaped profile covered in sugar.
Turkey – Fresh white sourdough bread, white cheese (feta), yellow cheese (kasar), fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, black and/or green olives, butter, honey, soujouk, salami, pastirma and a boiled egg — all accompanied by hot black tea.
Egypt – Ful medames served with pita bread, a light salad and yoghurt.
Full English breakfast – Bacon, sausages, black pudding, baked beans, hash browns and grilled tomato.
Israel – Fresh vegetables salad, goats/cows cream cheese, fresh bread or toast, olives, butter, fried eggs of your choice, and some small cookies or slices of cake with coffee or orange juice.
In India, each state would have a variety of popular breakfasts, depending on the staple foods of that region.
If you need more inspiration, head to the breakfast page on Wikipedia and follow one of the numerous links to come up with something that some people in some other corner of the world have for breakfast. You might just have fun doing it!!
Once done, mail your entries to Glenna at Marie9949 (at) sbcglobal (dot) com before 27th August, 10 PM Central Time. For complete details, check out the main announcement.
