For me breakfast was considered cereal, eggs, muffins or waffles and a cup coffee with a glass of OJ or apple juice.I grew up eating dessert for breakfast. My mother was not a morning person and allowed me to eat anything I wanted as long as I left her alone, got it for myself and cleaned up (and made no noise). Nine out of ten times, I ate sugary cereals (she bought me anything that meant I'd leave her alone in the morning) or leftover dessert. Cake, cookies, candy, etc., were all just a normal breakfast for me. While I eat much better now, every so often, I'll just have a piece of cake or handful of cookies to start the day.
I grew up eating dosas, idlis, , uppuma, pooris, chappatis, and delicious curries and coconut chutneys to eat them with. All of which I now make at home. Yes, an egg now and then, and sometimes, bread or toast. Things changed a lot after coming to the States. In this country, I enjoy all kinds of Western breakfasts, including eggs, bacon, sausage, smoked ham. and Jarslberg, Gouda and other fine cheeses.For me breakfast was considered cereal, eggs, muffins or waffles and a cup coffee with a glass of OJ or apple juice.
