Blogging Over Breakfast

When I eat Breakfast on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I think of you guys.

I blog over breakfast, you see. I am totally a Breakfast Blogger. Armed with coffee and toast or cereal, along with my brekcessories of jam or honey, I settle down to my keyboard and chat to you over my morning meal.

My status this morning on Facebook was "Do you prefer a sweet or salty breakfast to start your day?" and so far it looks like I am friends with a bunch of Breakfast Sweet Teeth. I thought about it, and I think that I prefer a savory breakfast. I love my eggs - so anything like an omelette,
or scrambled eggs will get me. But don't get me wrong, if you invite me out for pancakes, I won't say no!

What about you? Do you prefer Sweet or salty breakfasts?

Update: Lovely Kristin recently created an Etsy Treasury inspired by this post (she also included one of my Tea Necklaces). Here it is - isn't it gorgeous?

Um, I can't think right now. I need to go eat something.

Renee said...

I have 1/2 sourdough english muffin with peanut butter and jam EVERY DAY. I guess I like sweet. :)

AMKreations said...

Okay, I was hungry...but NOW I AM REALLY HUNGRY!!! the eggs look awesome...how can you do this to me!!!

abigail said...

My favorite breakfast is when my husband and I go out- he orders a sweet breakfast, I order a savory one and we swap bites at the end.
one bite of pancakes after a delicious spinach,feta and tomato omelet is the perfect way to start the day!

The savory breakfast looks amazing to me. I love a soft runny egg! When I was a little girl my mom wanted me to eat soft boiled eggs mixed with toast and I did not want to but I love it now. Sweet has never been my favorite for breakfast and let's not even get into the fact that it is immediate energy that peters out when savory will last longer. :o)

Jaime said...

Oh my bfast is my fave meal of the day- I normally go salty...but I would say that I won't turn down a good pancake :)

Ave said...

Salty for me, but I love pancakes too :D

justalittlepiece said...

SWEEEEEEEEET! I just can't help it. I pretty much hate the taste of eggs...well, until recently. I found out if I get egg whites only and a whole lot of salsa, they're a GO.

Truly Smitten said...

I'm about to sound like a pig right now but I LOOOOOOOOVE breakfast! My favorite meal of the day. When we do go out for a breakfast meal, I need BOTH sweet and savory....so I will usually order an omelette and hashbrown and I will ALSO order sweet buttermilk pancakes or stuffed french toast....OMG..i'm so hungry. I am going out for a blueberry muffin run now!

The Girl in the Orange Background said...

I love breakfast! It's my favorite meal and, in fact, I wrote a post about it last month too. It talks about the importance of having breakfast! I LOVE eggs, but just like you, I always enjoy something sweet during my mornings. :)

here is my post in case you want to check it out!

bananas. said...

oh i'm all over the savory breakfast. i'm little but if you put a chicken fried steak and eggs meal in front of me, i will devour it real quick!

oh, hello friend. said...

that french toast looks sooooo good. i never make breakfast :( but i can live vicariously through looking and pretending to eat yours.

hope you're well.

xo. danni

LollyChops said...

I am totally a savory morning person. Sweets just don't last long enough to get me to lunch time!

Amanda said...

I think I'm a both person - pancakes with blackberries and whipped cream, along with some scrambled eggs and hashbrown casserole - heaven!

Michele said...

Don't make me choose! I love both. If I go out I usually get something sweet like french toast with a side of eggs like a sunny side up or a poached egg...or two. lol

By the way, we should totally be friends on facebook! I talk about food all the time. http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/profile.php?id=672750064

Annie said...

i love salty! bacon and eggs! mmm!

Kaye Prince said...

When I eat breakfast, which is really not that often (I know that's bad), I prefer a savoury meal. I love Tuscan baked eggs with toast, cheese and herb omelets, or even just a simple pesto scroll or croissant.

Oh gosh, now I want breakfast even though it's almost 3pm!

Chelsea said...

My breakfast mood changes. But bacon is ALWAYS good.

jeannie said...

ooo, it depends on the day. Some days I like sweet foods others I like salty. Brunch is my favorite!

Simply Mel said...

Salty and savory with a bit of sweet on the side!

Bri said...

Oh I'm totally a salty person. Never had much of a sweet tooth. I really like this illustration, by the way. Great colors!

Phoenix said...

I can go either way, depending on my mood...I love poached eggs on english muffins...

but I also love chocolate croissants, warm out of the oven :)

Michelle said...

Sweet, all the way. Every single morning, I have two pieces of almond butter toast with apricot jam. YUM. It never gets old.

courtney said...

hiya - thanks for stopping by my blog :) yours is so totally adorable!

re: my preferred breakfast ... that's a tough choice! i'm gonna go with sweet, just because i never regret having pancakes or waffles for breakfast, drowning in syrup. mm.

maybe i'll do breakfast for dinner today. pancakes, anyone?

Carol said...

I am all about the salty breakfast!

Tracy-Girl said...

So cute that you blog over breakfast!!

Rachel Follett said...

It depends on the mood I would say. Sometimes I want sweet and sometimes I want savory. I have started to become a breakfast blogger too. I used to do them at night but I seem to be a better writer in the morning. Lovely illustration!

simplesong said...

oh my -- after this post i just want a lot of breakfast food right now! i love, love breakfast .... both sweet + savory and right now i'm very much looking forward to my meal tomorrow morning!

Ali said...

I'd say I'm a savory breakfast kinda gal.

However, like you said, I'll take pancakes and/or waffles anyday! ;)

iheartkiwi said...

i am totally a savory girl! breakfast burritos are the everyday fave in my house.

however, food network featured a phoenix breakfast spot last weekend and now i'm dying to try their carmel and banana french toast!

Dash said...

im definitely a savoury breakfast person. i love scrambled eggs and toast, and sausages and sauteed mushrooms, with fresh slices of tomato.

but like you, i never say no to pancakes:)

Anna Ander said...

Over here it's dinner time right now, but your pictures made me a crave a hearty breakfast! I'm all for sweets after say ten o'clock, but before that I just want my tea and my eggs. If I'm not on holiday, that is. Holidays change everything, breakfast behaviour included. When in Rome...

Kristin said...

That is a gorgeous treasury! And I like a little sweet AND a little savory with my ideal breakfast. Also, a cup of java is most necessary!

jess gonacha swift said...

oooh, what a good question! I think I normally like a breakfast that is on the sweet side, but I'll never say no to a savory breakfast either. Breakfast is my favorite meal, so I'm in love with so many breakfast foods!

Melissa Blake said...

To me, breakfast isn't breakfast without something sweet! :) Pancakes and donuts are my weakness!

Savvy Gal said...

i prefer salty and follow by sweets. : )

Hilary Leister said...

OMGosh... I'm a breakfast blogger too!

I start off my day with a bagel and coffee in front of the computer... for me, there's no other way :)

Carissa said...

I'd say savory, like you. I am totally an eggs kind of gal. I make them at home, but I also order them when I am out-- in particular, eggs benedict. oh my goodness, that is like heaven on a plate in the morning. my boyfriend on the other hand always seems to order pancakes or french toast, never eggs! I guess opposites attract? :)

and that is a gorgeous treasury!

Claudia said...

great post and very good question!
I think I prefer a sweet breakfast!!! I love pancakes or crumpets, sometimes even a nice bowl of fruit!!

Vanessa said...

Sweet or savory breakfast? Such a hard question! I'n my opinion there is nothing better in the whole world than the combination of French toast and bacon. I am also a total sucker for cheese grits.

Des said...

You pose a difficult question but I'd have to vote for the salty breakfast.

photojoy said...

I've been always enjoying reading your post each time. Thanks for leaving a message. She's doing all right but she needs lots of time. Have a happy beginning of the day!

Blair said...

Totally a savoy girl! And so going to start using the term brekcessories---adorable!

Tender Branson said...

I think I prefer a combo. Pancakes with potatoes or veggie bacon.

a little twig birdhouse said...

If I go out to breakfast it'll progbably be a sweet pick - pancakes or french toast. But at home it'll be salty (I think) cereal like raisin bran or chex, or toast with peanut butter, or eggs if I'm really feeling like making a mess and cleaning up!

Kotori said...

What a fun treasury...and congrats on being included.

I myself am a savory breakfast - eggs & toast. We almost never have breakfast out so when we do it's such a treat.

Sarah said...

Oh savory, I can't even imagine eating a pancake! Really, they just do not hold my interest. But give me some jerk-scrambled eggs and we will be in business!

Lindsey said...

Hi. Don't have lots of time, just wanted you to know I'm still here reading and loving you!

ann ladson said...

I am definitely a savory girl, morning, noon and night. 6 months into my relationship one day i said, i am craving some chocolate and my boyfriend looked at me like i had three heads, it's a rare day i am into sweets.

Sarah said...

O wow, lovely treasury.

I loooooove salty breakfasts, hands down.

A hint of sweet would be in my coffee.
