Americans come from a place where breakfast takes on many forms. Some would say it is the grab-and-go meal of the day, coffee and a bagel. Others might say, it is the most important meal of the day - and a short stack of pancakes, two eggs and a few slices of bacon would treat it as such. It could be argued that a simple bowl of oatmeal is all one needs for a morning boost of energy. Though, for late starters, brunch buffets and mimosas might be more fitting.

Perhaps breakfast is all of the above - a meal defined by choices. A savory omelet or french toast doused in sweet maple syrup with a liberal sprinkle of baker's sugar. A meat-indulgent cornbeef hash or a veggie frittata. So many choices, in fact, that when we happen upon those days the question of "what's for dinner?" seems too taxing to answer we throw up our hands and figure why not just put together a late night breakfast.
