    We could have done with more than one option. Toast is only part of a touring breakfast. Toast with an egg or fruit.

    I have baguette toasted on one of those toasters for a gas ring.

    You can't beat French bread for that(y)

    I know, the list cld have been endless, but toast meant just toast. Will amend the eggs one to eggs and toast :) Was interested in how many peeps stick to their usual british type fayre and how many enjoy the french nosh first thing. We camped next to one couple who wldn't entertain eating anything other than a fry up first thing and went as far as stocking up on british sausages !!!

    Apart from a baguette nothing else takes my fancy for breakfast. Croissant Choc au pain or Pain au raison are ok for women but hardly a mans choice. Toast with a bit of fruit or a boiled egg Yum.

    Must tell my husband he's been eating breakfast only suitable for women. Personally, I can't stand sweet things at breakfast time. Much prefer an egg.

    Warm croissants, can't do with cold ones, unsalted French butter and bonne maman apricot jam + 2 cups of tea. Groaning here, just started 5:2 diet and ready for my off diet day brekkie now!
    Must be something to bonne maman jam, its popular!
