When I was younger, and really into Spider-Man, I wondered about Aunt May’s signature breakfast dish, wheatcakes, and whether they’d be better than my usual toast with peanut butter.  (Marvel Comics eventually printed the recipe for May’s wheatcakes, and they tasted like papier mache, to my youthful self’s disappointment.)  If I had the patience and/or sufficiently low cholesterol to create Stephen Universe’s pancake/chocolate/whip cream concoction from ‘Forever Breakfast’, I imagine it would be more satisfying, but to be honest, I’d probably prefer Clair’s sushi from ‘The Breakfast Club’, which isn’t actually about breakfast at all, but it’s thematic and leads to today’s daybreak query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) really shouldn’t write when hungry, asking: Which pop-culture dish would you choose as your perfect breakfast?

    My mind instantly goes to Lembas bread, just for the fact that it keeps you full for super long times (so i don’t have to grab food between lectures) and I’m assuming tastes delicious.

    “Besalisk’s Bellyful” Hash, a dish from Dex’s Diner (the diner seen in Star Wars Episode II and featured in various articles and comics) made with beef from a Bantha, Ojomian onions and protatoes (not to be confused with potatoes). I really enjoy corned beef hash, so I’m fairly certain I’d enjoy this variation of it.

    Alternately, a “simple” breakfast of Roba sausage and Nuna eggs sounds good too.

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.
