A new survey asked 2,000 Americans to name their favorite breakfast foods. Since this is Iowa, and we're so known for it, I figured bacon would either be #1 or #2. But it tied for third place.

Apparently it's not even our favorite breakfast MEAT! But, duh... look at our biggest export: Pork!

  • According to the results, the ten most popular breakfast foods in the state of Iowa, and America as a whole right now are: Eggs.
  • Sausage, in second place
  • Bacon and pancakes tied for third
  • Toast
  • Waffles
  • Avocado
  • Cereal
  • Breakfast sandwiches
  • And bananas.

Avocado is the only item that probably wouldn't have been on the list a decade ago.  Yes, the whole avocado toast boom is real.

The survey also found 45% of us usually tend to SKIP breakfast.

The top three reasons for not eating breakfast are, 'I'm just not hungry in the morning',  'I don't have time', and, 'I don't think breakfast is all that important.'

But eating breakfast LATER in the day has gotten pretty popular. 69% of people said they occasionally eat 'brinner' AKA., 'breakfast for dinner.'

PS, coffee is my #1. I'd even turn down something chewable for it most days...
