Breakfast can be underrated -- or, more often than not, forgotten about altogether in exchange for getting to work on time. But today, we're giving breakfast -- the most important meal of the day! -- the VIP treatment with this question:

If time wasn't a factor, what is the one breakfast that would make your weekday mornings a little better?


Christina: Bacon, Egg, Lettuce and Tomato on toasted sourdough with a steamy cup of joe and fresh orange-carrot juice. 

Lindsay-Jean: A daily delivery from Milwaukee of the best breakfast burrito I've ever had. Jalapeño cheddar tortilla, scrambled eggs, chile rojo, cheddar cheese, rosemary potatoes, sweet corn, green tomato pico de gallo, and sriracha sour cream. 

Michael: Huevos rancheros.

Jennifer: Breakfast strata with sausage and lots of cheese!

Karl: I'm with Jenn on the breakfast strata.

Maddy: A freshly baked croissant or pain au raisin.

Brette: Pho!

Marian:Perfectly fried eggs, sourdough toast, sweet potatoes (and ketchup!), and endless cappuccinos.

Lauren: Bean, egg and avocado burrito and a LARGE latte!

Jennifer: I love me a poached egg on an a (brace yourself) butter- or cream cheese-smeared english muffin with salt.

Amanda Li: Could really go for some steaming hot congee with pork and preserved egg.

Amanda: Soft boiled egg with soldiers.

Gheanna: 2 slices of perfect, crispy bacon and Merrill's maple cinnamon toast. I dream of sweet and savory.

Kristen: Homemade cinnamon rolls with cream cheese icing. We made them one Christmas morning when I was about 10 and I think I've been dreaming of them ever since.

Kenzi: This might upset a few people, but I really love cereal. Like, love it.  

James: A warm ham and Swiss cheese croissant with a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice. That would just about make my day.

Merrill: Add a cappuccino, and I'm on that train.

Allison: Eggs Florentine a la Allison -- spinach, feta and a poached egg -- but skip the hollandaise and english muffin, and go straight on top of some hash browns or skillet potatoes. I personally like to complement this with with an iced tea.
