I've been doing some real theoretical stuff this year, not too many technological adaptations yet, however one result so far.
By Slassinger's theorem of breakfast grains the more advertising the less karumpf, karumpf being the measure of breakfast goodness divided by the time it takes to reach satiation. Via this metric I've discovered that Post Raisin Bran is MATHEMATICALLY superior to Kellogg's.
Also been doing some research into steel cut otameal (also known as Irish or Scottish oatmeal). Try this:
Boil 3c water.
Add AT LEAST 1 Tbsp salt.
Add 1c steel cut oatmeal.
Simmer for at least 20 min - the more the creamier. It should be a thick porridge by now.
Add 1.5oz of milk, 1 oz maple syrup, some brown sugar if you like, cinnamon, dash of nutmeg. Simmer 10 min more.
Add 1tbsp butter. Let cool for 10 min. Eat.
Traditional way is also to let the oatmeal sit in the cold water and salt overnight, investigate this soon.
At the Park Chili parlor in Cincinnati, you can get several different kinds of "breakfast mess"
It's what it sounds like. It's a plate heaping with a mish-mashed pile o' breakfast. You can get a ham mess, a sausage mess, a veggie mess, etc.
It's, possibly needless to say, awesome. An excellent hangover cure. _________________ "No 'revolutionary' has any hope as long as he's willing to deal with the Established Order on it's own terms and in it's own context."

I spent Halloween in Jersey, and when I woke up hungover the next morning, I ate a pork roll (with egg & cheese on a bagel) to nurse my hangover (note: some people in the Montclair area call this a "taylor ham"). I'd never had one before, although I've been hearing stories about them for years. I didn't start eating pork until about 9 months ago, ya see.
Anywho, it was goddamn delicious. That's all. Kthxbai!

I usually hate eggs but I love a nice frittata for breakfast. Here's my favorite.
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 small red potatoes, thinly sliced
1 cup diced roasted red peppers
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon minced basil
salt and pepper to taste
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup goat cheese
Heat olive oil in a medium iron skillet over medium heat. Place potatoes in the skillet, cover, and cook about 10 minutes, until tender but firm. Mix in peppers and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Add basil and cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes
In a medium bowl, beat together eggs and cream. Pour into the skillet over the vegetables. Sprinkle with goat cheese. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook 5 minutes.
Finish under broiler for 2 minutes or until top has slightly browned.
