There are plenty of breakfast dishes out there. Breakfast cereal, grits, oatmeal, pancakes and waffles, eggs with meats and toast, omelets, skillets and scrambles … the list goes on and on. There are plenty of sweet dishes out there, lots of fruits and, in many cases, quite a bit of sugar. Vegetables show up on occasion as well, particularly in omelets, skillets and scrambles.

Rarely will you find any herbs in a breakfast dish. More robust breakfast dishes tend to be either creamy or meaty. It seems to be a meal specifically designed for comfort foods, and anything savory whatsoever almost seems out of place. There are some standbys that have a savory bent to them. Biscuits with sausage gravy, heavily peppered as it is in southern states, is one savory dish that's widely accepted even in the northeast. Mexican omelets and breakfast burritos, which include sausages or even taco meat, and possibly a spicy tomato and pepper salsa, are also rather popular. And a good breakfast casserole will serve an entire family quite well.
