With the recent surge of blogs about NJ food, bacon (crispy and otherwise), chowder, crabs, scallops, corn, tomatoes, etc, I thought it only appropriate to alert readers to a mouth-watering blog on 50 of the world's best breakfasts. It has some scrumptious looking dishes, many of which include a generous dollop of cholesterol as a bonus.
A number of the comments criticised some of the entries as inauthentic. I must say that the choice of blueberry pancakes for the American version was curious. I like blueberry pancakes well enough but for a true stick-to-the-ribs, hearty breakfast balm one must have grits. Of course the other goodies - eggs, pancakes, waffles, bacon (crispy of course), etc. - are great but they don't soothe and nourish like grits, especially with a little butter and just a hint of salt on the top. When my Mom would serve some up with a smile on her face, everything was right in the world.
Since the best American dishes are regional, labelling something as "American" is inevitably arbitrary unless one chooses the lowest common denominator of some sort of IHoP generic fodder. So, I can accept that a compromise must be made, but neglecting grits for America (while featuring them in the Bahamian breakfast) is a serious faux pas.
