Breakfast gets your day started, and in America we like to do breakfast big. Eggs, bacon, pancakes, waffles, french toast, you name it, we make it. But for all of our extravagant breakfast combos, research shows that 31 percent of those who eat breakfast in America normally eat cold cereal for breakfast, followed by two in 10 of those who eat breakfast consuming eggs for breakfast.
While you may not find cold cereal at all restaurants, eggs, bacon, toast and cheesy grits are all well-loved breakfast diner specials that Americans truly do enjoy, and are a great and yummy way to start your day. But for those of us who don't like waking up early and rushing out at the sunrise, there's always brunch — a perfect combination between breakfast and lunch, with all the richness of eggs benedict, french toast and savory grits.
