Breakfast has been widely regarded as the most important meal of the day — and we happen to agree. Especially when it’s washed down with a big cup of coffee and a couple of mimosas on a lazy Sunday morning.
Like the country itself, breakfast and brunch options across the U.S. have become a melting pot of spicy, savory and sweet. And there’s an endless amount of dishes and ingredients to help get your day off on the right foot.
Here, we’ve pulled together a list of the 50 most popular American breakfast foods. Using a live list from Ranker, looking at trends in the food scene and taking into account our own staff’s humble opinions, we ranked these items from the absolute worst to those morning meals we could eat time and time again.
