Kellogg’s Love Your Cereal – Post 10

This is sponsored content by BlogHer and Kellogg’s.

Over the years I’ve prepared just about every imaginable breakfast food.

We’ve gone through phases with certain cereals, oatmeal, bagels, English muffins, cinnamon toast, cheese grits, eggs, orange rolls – and a whole host of other things.

And while we’ve certainly enjoyed all of those foods – maybe even gotten in a little bit of a rut with them – there has been one breakfast food that has never, ever been out of the rotation for very long. Because it never, ever lets us down. And it never, ever fails to delight.

Everybody say it with me: bacon.

Oh, we LOVE the bacon.

And no matter what kind of morning it is – rushed, relaxed, peaceful, cuckoo – the bacon always makes us smile. It is, for me, the smell of home, and while maybe that’s a little too revealing in terms of my family’s fondness for fried pork products, it’s true. When I smell bacon cooking on the stove, I’m instantly transported to my grandmother’s kitchen and to my mother’s kitchen, to a less-hectic time when a hot breakfast was always the order of the day.

So while there are a lot of breakfast foods that we could probably live without if we had to, there’s definitely one that we would miss with everything in us if it happened to disappear. We’re in this breakfast thing with bacon for the long haul, and if it ever tries to leave us, well, we will hunt it down and write it letters and beg it to return.

So that we can fry it up and eat it.

The end.

  1. Sausage, egg, and cheese biscuits will be eaten anytime of the day or night for that matter.

  2. The one item I always keep on hand are Kelloggs Nutri-grain granola bars, we all love them at my house and eat them regularly for a quick healthy breakfast on the go, & hubby takes one in his briefcase for a quick snack to tide him over til lunch, Thanks for the great giveaway

  3. pancakes!! we can eat them any time of the day!

  4. I need two slices, NEED, two slices of my homemade bread for toast every morning.

    Hubs NEEDS a banana, which he proceeds to mash into his oatmeal. GAG!

    To each his/her own – especially at breakfast!! :)

  5. Omelets and French Toast!

  6. Jacqueline says:


  7. Eggs. I even ate hospital eggs today and they were decent.

  8. The buttery goodness of an Eggo waffle. So yummy and quick. Not the greatest for a carb addict, but delicious nonetheless!

  9. scrambled eggs

  10. If they had their druthers, it would be a full course breakfast every morning: eggs, grits, bacon, biscuits.

    Waffles and pancakes are the second pick and my reliable breakfast items.

  11. chocolate chip cookies. and also cake.

  12. scones – oh my goodness…

  13. Granola Waffles made from the Granola Waffle mix from Williams Sonoma…drizzled with organic honey and a glass of really cold milk

  15. I’m with you, Boo Mama. It’s all about the bacon.

  16. Some skillet-fried potatoes to go with the bacon and eggs.

  17. Homemade pancakes with fresh strawberries and real whip cream (ya know the kind you actually have to whip not just shake). Yum

  18. Breakfast burritos from the recipe that Barb over at Chelsea Morning put up a couple years back.

    A large batch (made by Kati now), wrapped and put in the freezer – and then nothing but a quick couple minutes in the microwave in the am, and the kids are off with a semi-healthy, but filling breakfast!

  19. Tammy Elrod says:

    Milk! Preferably fat free and organic!

  20. I really enjoy cinnamon rolls and a “real” coke!

  21. We’re all about oatmeal (or, in Annie’s words, “e-mail!”) at our house. It’s super quick…and because it’s warm, it makes me feel like I actually cooked something. :)

  22. Yogurt! It’s so filling and yummy!

  23. I love breakfast! Pancakes, eggs, sausage and biscuits!

  24. My dad’s Mickey Mouse pancakes. I’m not sure what it is about the shape, but they are totally better than normal-shaped pancakes! :)

  25. A favorite for our family:

    Cornflakes and milk
    Peanut Butter and honey mixed together.

    How do you eat it? Take a spoonful of PB&Honey, then dip it into your cornflakes and enjoy breakfast!

  26. oatmeal that has simmered in the crock pot all night long with cinnamon, apples, and other delicious ingredients. And scrambled eggs- they always sound good and never let me down!

  37. Chai Tea. Is that a food? I have it every morning.

  38. If we’re talking whole house consensus, it has to be pancakes.

    I would eat a full Scottish breakfast every morning if I could. The baked tomato just hits a spot I never even knew I had. Amazing.

    Also? Orange juice. Very important. It tells my brain and taste buds about the sun.

    I used to do the chicken dance with my kids every morning when they were smaller. It’s just as important as breakfast!

  45. Every year when we go to the mountains for vacation, my husband is usually the breakfast guy…loves to cook, is a morning person. The best breakfast he makes is biscuits and red eye gravy.

    Eggs and bacon!

  59. Mary Helen says:

    We always have at least two kinds of cereal on hand as well as some type of granola bar, in case we need something extra fast! But if I could have ANYTHING for breakfast, it would be a breakfast burrito with scrambled eggs, bacon & cheese :)

  60. I’ll never grumble over an egg sandwich…

  61. A bacon, egg and cheese biscuit. Amen.

  62. Nothing beats my grandmother’s homemade biscuits! She had no recipe – a little of this and a pinch of that – and what I wouldn’t give for one now. She’s been gone many years and I can still taste the biscuits!

  63. A frosted homemade cinnamon roll is my favorite, but waffles are a staple in our house for breakfast.

  64. Not that I have them every day or even once a month, but after working at McD’s as a teenager I have to admit that I sometimes crave an Egg McMuffin with strawberry jelly and a Coke. Ummm….

  65. Eggs – i can scramble one in my coffee cup at work, and it fits perfectly on an english muffin!

  66. Hashbrowns – with Tabasco!

  67. I’m with you on the bacon! Bacon makes everything better!!

  75. Rebecca Hamilton says:


  76. Melissa B. says:

    I love fresh biscuits, but I usually stick with a granola bar since biscuits aren’t a friend to my diet.

  77. I know this will win The Most Boring Answer Ever! Award, but toast is my go-to breakfast food. (With butter, of course!)

  78. Bacon is our favorite food item in general. While not just for breakfast, it has only let us down once when we tried an off-brand which turned out to be pretty bad.

  80. Muffins!

  82. Hmmm…bacon would be high on the list, as well as Grands Flaky Layers cinnamon rolls with cream cheese icing!

  83. I found a little place here in SC where I can buy JUST the marshmallows from Lucky Charm cereal. How cool is that?! So how much of a loser am I that I put the marshmallows into my high-fiber-good-for-you cereal?? LOVE IT!!

  84. I love toast with peanut butter and banana :-) I dont know why, i know it’s weird but it’s my fav breakfast!

  94. Egg whites with veggies and a bit of cheese – this is the only thing that keeps me happy til lunchtime!
