Freshly coarse ground black pepper is the best. That's the reason I will often bring home B&G from Hardees instead of eating it there. Put them out on a real plate (as opposed to the styrofoam carton) and grind a ton of pepper on it.

And no other biscuits than Hardees. I haven't found anyone else's that even comes close. And if you get a batch that's well done so the outside has a nice crunch (but not burned or overdone), that's the bomb!

Now I'm going to have to think about going out before breakfast ends this morning.

Another few:

11. The best breakfast ever is a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich on a buttered hard roll from a NY deli. Just eat them sparingly -- they'll kill you.

12. Ice cream doesn't need to be loaded with various bits and pieces. It doesn't get better than Haagen-Dazs vanilla.

13. Cooking breakfast on the grill rules.

14. Grow an herb garden.

15. Nothing is better than al fresco dining on a summer evening.

16. Dessert does not need to be fancy. It gets no better than fresh baked chocolate chip cookies (no nuts) and/or vanilla ice cream.

17. When eating in a "Chinese" restaurant in China, make sure you know exactly what you are eating. I love the Chinese, but they eat some nasty stuff.

18. No matter how hard they try, don't let an Australian talk you into trying vegemite.

19. Steak should be cooked rare, if, for no other reason, you can reheat the leftovers and not have it be overcooked.

20. Prime rib should be red in the center and brown around the perimeter.

I've introduced my Texas friends and in-laws to the fried egg sandwich. Now they love breakfast at my house on the weekends (with mimosas ). To that end, one of my first purchases for the house was a griddle unit for our island cooktop.

BTW - I appreciate your use of the term "hard roll". Trying to buy hard rolls here is a futile effort....they're called kaiser rolls.

I agree, Duhey. Those are definitely impossible to find below the mason-dixon. Same applies to good crusty Italian/French bread and good crusty rye bread.

Yes. It's wonderful to have fresh herbs to eat, and even lovely just to work in- you get all the lovely herb-y aromas as you weed between the plants.

Positively crunchy on the outside, rare and juicy inside.

I'd be far more disturbed by ingredients from the GBIV part!

Since someone mentioned Wonder bread, I thought of another rule to add to my list:

No bread that sticks to the roof of your mouth.

They didn't previously know what a fried egg sandwich is? Fried egg on really fresh white bread...oh how good. Optionally with bacon.

My wife, a gourmet cook who can prepare fantastic dishes based on German, Italian, Indonesian, Indian, Thai, French, Chineese and Middle eastern cuisine, likes to make up a pot a pasta, put ketchup on it, and have it with a glass of milk. Totally grosses me out

I don't eat toast for the simple rule that I don't like things that have been cooked twice or reheated.
