I am often asked by our readers, second and third generation Puerto Ricans, what do islanders eat for breakfast? They often describe hot cereals that they don't recall the name of or how to prepare it.

Islanders eat a variety of breakfast foods. Traditionally the most common breakfast food item is French bread and often it is just buttered and they eat this while sipping steaming hot Puerto Rican coffee that is made using steamed milk. That is the old fashioned way. We also eat fried eggs alongside fried amarillos, those are so yummy. Warm cereals include Farina, Avena, Arroz con Leche, Funche, and Maizena, among others. We are also known to beat Batatas (yams) asadas with butter, baked plantains and amarillos. Fruits, like oranges, and grapefruit, mangos and guavas are also included with the meal.

Some like to prepare fancier food. This recipe is a Stuffed Breakfast French Loaf where some of middle has been removed and filled with 4 wisked eggs, ¼ lb chorizo, ½ small chopped onion and 2 tbsp chopped peppers mixture, then it is put in the oven until the egg is cooked. Bake at 350° for about 20 minutes then add shredded mozzarella and back in the oven until the cheese melts. It is delicious and it is Puerto Rican!
