Question Is there such thing as a typical Nebraskan breakfast?

Hey all,

I was just curious as to whether there was such thing as a typical breakfast that is common to Nebraska or certain parts of Nebraska. In fact, are there any typical meals or foods that are considered common, whether it be for breakfast, lunch, or dinner?

Just curious, thanks!

Ham & eggs or Bacon & eggs with a side of hash browns, buttered toast and gobs of coffee is standard fare in my family.

A carrott and an apple for breakfast (but if my wife isn't looking than scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, hashbrowns, and coffee) - but I could also go with the Honey Bunches of Oats..

Anything I can put on the grill for supper.

One unique trait for Nebraska, is having a cinnamon roll with chili. My mind is going blank on others, I'll post if I think of more. Of course, we like our steaks here. Also people seem to really enjoy food that would come out of a garden.

How about fried chicken, potatoes, gravy made off the drippings from the fried chicken,broccoli/cheese, then fresh corn from the field, and bread pudding!!!
That is my favorite meal when I go home.

So cold pizza isn't on the menu with a glass of Kool-Aid? Don't laugh have had that a time or two.

Our family when we all get together at holidays, wife will make breakfast pizza, kids favorite breakfast. Eggs in a Basket is pretty common around home. Poached eggs with toast. We can hit them all. I start my day with a good breakfast, lunch is a hit and miss most times.

Come supper, depending on the time of the year. Summer you will find the grill on, steaks cooking perhaps a brat now and again. Fall and winter you will more than likely find some sort of stew simmering on the stove and off course you can't forget buffalo chili also.

Even better is the cinnamon roll dipped in the chili!

That's how school lunch was always done when I was a kid. Oddly enough, I have eaten cinnamon rolls/chili several times as a teacher (in western NE) and the kids always look at me like I'm nuts when I dip.
