A friend and I had dinner last night with his parents, who insisted on having breakfast or nothing at all. Because it was a steak house, we had to find other accommodations. He later complained that any time he shares a meal with his parents away from their home, they insist on breakfast, no matter what the time of day. I have since spoken with friends who say the same thing about some of their family members, some of whom will not eat anything else, no matter where they are. The behavior doesn’t seem to be specific to age, culture or gender. I’ve traveled to other countries and haven’t seen this anywhere but the United States. What’s with this breakfast addicton?

I can’t account for people who will NEVER eat anything but breakfast food in a restaurant, but I can’t help but observe that a good, traditional American country ‘big breakfast’ (eggs, bacon or sausage, pancakes, biscuits, grits, etc.) is much more enjoyable when someone else is doing the cooking. This kind of food is not particularly hard to fix, but it is greasy and requires a lot of utensils, and everything has to be ready at the same time. If it’s a breakfast-style restaurant such as Waffle House or Bob Evans, they do it almost in production-line fashion, and the food is ready fairly quickly. It is also pretty hard to mess up eggs, toast, coffee and orange juice.
