Round up of A-Z Breakfast Dishes
The Mega Blogging Marathon theme for April 2018 was Explore the Flavors. This time we could choose from a number of given themes. Follow one theme for all 26 days or choose a weekly theme. The themes were as follows:
Lunch Box Dishes (Elders)
Breakfasts (International or Indian)
No Refined Sugar or Refined Flour (only baked or typical dishes that are made with alternatives)
No Onion No Garlic
I chose to do the International Breakfast theme and this time I didn’t post the dishes randomly but followed the alphabet and also tried not to repeat the country. Overall a challenging task but feel really great as I got to discover so many different breakfast dishes from world over.
Here’s a recap of all the breakfast dishes from A – Z:
A – Apple Aeblskiver – Denmark
B – Baghrir – Morocco
C – Changua – Colombia
D – Dutch baby Pancakes – Germany /USA
E – English Breakfast – England
F – French Toast – Canada
G – Griddle/Girdle Scones – Scotland
H – Hafragrautur – Iceland
I – Idiyappam – India
J – Johnnycakes – The Caribbean
K – Khabees – Bahrain
L – Lahooh/Lahoh – Somalia
M – Masoub – Yemen
N – Nasi Goreng – Indonesia
O – Oladushki – Russia
P – Pandesal – The Philippines
Q – Qistibi – Tatarstan and Bashkortostan
R – Red Rice Porridge – Bhutan
S – Suafa’i – Samoa
T – Tomato Omelette – Armenia
U – Uji – Kenya
V – Vary Sosoa – Madagascar
W – Welsh Rarebit – Wales
X – Xiao Mi Zhou – China
Y – Yogurt and Muesli Parfait – Switzerland
Z – Zege – Tanzania
I noticed that eggs are commonly consumed for breakfast in many countries. It can be in the form of omelettes, scrambled, fried, boiled or even as a soup.
While many Asian countries have rice, egg is added to quite a few dishes.
Pancakes too have eggs.
The other common breakfast from different countries is porridge. The grains used to make the porridge ranges from millet to rice to oats.
If its not eggs and porridge then the other most common breakfast ingredient is some form of bread. Either baked at home or ready made.
Finally, I simply love all sorts of pancakes, I took a liking to khabees, got a new idea on how to use up leftover roti parathas or naan and make masoub. English breakfast needs a bit of organizing so you get all the components of the dish hot. Zege and Lahooh turned out to be hubby’s favorite. Finally, finally I tried my hands at idiyappam and its so easy to make.
Please take a while and check out the recap of the other Mega Blogging Marathoners:

Awesome Mayuri. I know with blog move how difficult it would be. Because I went through the same during 2015 April. I moved my wordpress hosted blog to self hosted and I can clearly get the anticipation and anxiety.. Irrespective of all that you succeeded and loved your international breakfast theme. Learned a lot of recipes and as always loved your writeup.

Thank you so much Srividhya. As I’m going through the posts, realized that a lot of the comments I got for the initial posts for Mega BM are lost 🙁 Well, I guess can’t have it all.

Lovely round up Mayuri. You have taken us around the world with your Breakfasts from different countries. Great dishes and some of them were totally new to me. I have quite a few bookmarked to try and I’m hoping I can try them soon.

What a fantastic series Mayuri, so challenging and all the dishes were excellent!..Doing AtoZ on an international theme is so tough, yet you managed to get a dish without repeating a country! that’s outstanding. Its also nice to know that you were able to group the breakfast dishes. Though most had eggs, I think I can replace it with alternatives..thanks for this wonderful series.

Srivalli if it were not for these themes I would not know of so many of these dishes. Though its hard work at the end its such a satisfying feeling when one completes the mega BM without any hiccups. Thank you for organizing the BM every month.
