Here is a list of the most common breakfast foods we had while I was growing up
Bacon (home cured)
Sausage (home made
Hot Wheat Cereal (cooked)
Cold cereal (once in a great while,as a treat)
Monday through Saturday breakfast always began with fried eggs and bread (no toast),and then followed by hot cooked cereal with milk or fried potatoes &gravy or biscuits &gravy (the options of gravy was either sausage or tomato gravy),or pancakes &syrup (homemade) with liverwurst (homemade),bacon or sausage was served on the side when available (after we butchered until gone)
On Sunday morning my mother always served Coffee Soup after the eggs and bread. Coffee soup consists of soda crackers,brewed coffee,brown sugar,cream,and milk. This was considered a lighter meal because of no work on Sundays.
I hope this is helpful….
