Five questions about breakfast

I came across this Friday 5 post about breakfast today and yeah, I know it's Monday, but I figured I'd participate anyway. The idea behind Friday 5 is to consider the five questions that are posed (five new ones are asked every Friday) and answer them in a  post on your blog. So, here goes...... 1. Oh my goodness! You have to run out the door right now and you haven’t eaten! Before dashing out, what do you grab to wolf down on your way?

Hmmmm. Can't start the day without eating breakfast or I am starving by 10 a.m. I'd probably grab a granola or protein bar or a peeled hard-cooked egg (I've always got those in my fridge), a banana and a single-serve yogurt. I'd eat the granola bar or egg and banana in my vehicle on the way to work (I keep lots of napkings and wet wipes in the glove compartment!), and save the yogurt for when I got to the office an hour later and can find a spoon. I used to always keep a granola bar in my briefcase for eating on the run, but my dog discovered it one day and the results weren't pretty.

2. What’s a popular breakfast you dislike?

Coffee and pastry. Don't get me wrong. I ♥ sweet things, but an apple fritter, danishor yeast donut dripping with glaze or filled with jelly or custard just doesn't spell b-r-e-a-k-f-a-s-t for me. As for coffee, I've tried to like it. Tried really really hard actually. Drank it every day for 3 months a few years ago, willing myself to think it tasted good okay. Without success.

3. You’re going out for breakfast anywhere you want, and someone else is treating! Where do you go and what do you order?

Depends on the day, my mood and who's paying! For a tasty traditional brekky (sunny side up eggs, bacon and home fries), I'll head someplace like Cora's or Country Boy in Kitchener, or The Duke of Wellington in Waterloo on the weekend. If I'm going out with a girlfriend, Village Creperie in Kitchener serves breakfast on the weekends. The next time my husband offers to take me out on a Saturday or Sunday, I'd like to head to Wildcraft in Waterloo. I heard recently they have a nice brunch menu, and that their Creme Brulee French Toast (made with thick slices of bread and topped with custard and maple syrup) is really good. I use the Ontario's Best Breakfasts website created by Egg Farmers of Ontario to find great breakfasts locally and when I'm travelling in other parts of Ontario.

4. What do you have when you need a simple, healthy (or healthy-ish, for those of you who just don’t do healthy!) breakfast?

A "poached" egg (made with my handy little microwave egg cooker), toast, fruit (whatever is on hand), and orange juice. Or, a bowl of Raisin Bran cereal and a fruit smoothie.

5. You’ve been invited to a breakfast potluck. What are you most likely to bring?

Either a Hash Brown Frittata or a make-ahead strata or breakfast casserole.

So, how would you respond to these questions?
