If you see the words “American Breakfast” on the menu, what comes to mind?
Things that I sort of consider to be “American” breakfast foods (depending on what part of America we’re talking about):
- Scrambled eggs or over easy friend eggs
- Cold cereal
- Thin crispy slices of bacon
- Hash browns
- Eggs Benedict
- Biscuits and gravy
Then there are foods we’ve co-opted from other countries that frequent the American breakfast plate:
- Breakfast burritos
- Huevos Rancheros
So when Abner and I were at The Green Turtle Lodge at the beach in Ghana, we looked a bit puzzled at each other when we saw baked beans on the menu under “American Breakfast”. Whether or not you are an American…are baked beans what YOU imagine when you think of breakfast in America??
