What are Classic American Breakfast Foods?
Each country and culture has its own take on what makes the best breakfast dishes, based on their national identity, regional ingredients, and cultural history. In England they have the “Full English” breakfast with a lineup of eggs, fried bread, sauteed mushrooms, British breakfast meats like blood pudding, and much more. Other nations delight in a lighter offering, such as croissants and fresh fruit in France or a more savory option, including miso soup, rice, and egg omelets in Japan. For most of us, the classic American breakfast might be two eggs, two sausage or bacon, and a side of hashbrowns or potatoes. For others, it might be a simple bowl of cereal, a fresh-baked muffin, or a pile of pancakes. Our country has such a wide range of diversity and cultural influence, that it is just as common to have a breakfast burrito or chicken and waffles as it is to have a Denver omelet.
Some of the more common items you’ll see at our breakfast café in Wakefield include:
Bacon and Eggs – very common across the whole country, full of protein and flavor, this is a very “back to basics” approach to a hearty morning meal.
Biscuits and Gravy – not just for the South, this savory dish is served nationwide and is sometimes enjoyed alongside scrambled eggs and breakfast meats for a complete meal.
Breakfast Burrito – make sure to stop in a get a fresh morning taste with our breakfast burrito, which includes three scrambled eggs with sweet red peppers, onions, and pepper jack cheese – enjoy with salsa and your choice of meat, bacon, sausage, or ham.
Hash Bowls – our house-made hash is legendary and is served with two poached eggs over a bed of sauteed baby spinach and covered in Hollandaise sauce OR try some hash as a side item with any breakfast meal.
Scramblers of All Sorts – at Rachel’s Café in Rhode Island, we have the local Portuguese Scrambler with linguica and cheese, the Western Scrambler with peppers, ham, and cheese, the South County Scrambler with caramelized onions and a side of seasoned potatoes, and the Northwest Scrambler with bacon, sausage, and mushrooms – served with cornbread.
Pancakes and Waffles – We have buttermilk pancakes, Belgian waffles, and even specialty items, like our Oreo Cookie Pancakes and Cinnamon Toast Crunch Waffle. Make sure to ask about fresh fruit toppings and gluten-free options, as well!
