A number of hotels outside of the US offer something they call an American Breakfast. What does that usually include in terms of food and beverage?

Hope you enjoy the happiness of New Year and all the trimmings.

    Not mentioned in the answers so far is hashbrowns, which I feel are pretty American. Usually in some form of fried patties of potato. A Canadian breakfast by contrast seems to usually have cubed deep fried potato. So like chips/fries but in little cubes instead of long skinny sticks or such. – hippietrail Jan 18 '14 at 5:40
  • I wonder what they would make of a question like this over on our sister site cooking.SE? – hippietrail Jan 18 '14 at 5:40

    @hippietrail Those little cubes are known as "home fries" in the US. I have no idea why. – Michael Hampton Jun 29 '15 at 0:38

    @MichaelHampton Interesting, I've never heard them be called "Home Fries." "Home Fries" to me are the thick cut wedge type fried potatoes. At least everywhere I've lived. The cubed ones we always called "hash browns" but they are not the same as the shredded ones, obviously. But searching for "Home Fries" images in Google/Bing brings up an assortment of cut potatoes, some of which are more wedged, and some more cubed. I think the reason is that they are cut "at home" and therefore not evenly cute like they would be by machine. – chadbag Aug 4 '15 at 20:44

An American breakfast is simply the American variant of an English breakfast, which is elsewhere an Irish breakfast— what Wikipedia in its neutralism calls a full breakfast, in contrast to the so-called continental breakfast.

PC demand has been hit by competition from smartphones and tablets, along with longer lifecycles for PCs. Shipments fell in all regions around the world and have declined for five quarters in a row, according to IDC's figures.
About now, new CEO Gorman is probably learning that the meager profits of a retail brokerage can't pay for all those monster Wall Street bonuses. Expect Gorman to decide that Morgan Stanley should be a lot more like trader Goldman Sachs, after all.

  • Right. I've seen English and Continental breakfasts in many places. Never heard of anything being called Irish breakfast though. – Itai Jan 18 '14 at 2:05

    Plenty of places offer Irish breakfast in Australia. I'm sure about hotels because I rarely stay at hotels in developed countries. I've never been sure what the difference between Irish and English breakfast is. They're both huge and high in fat and vary from place to place. – hippietrail Jan 18 '14 at 5:35

    It seems that black and white pudding are essential elements of an Irish breakfast, but optional in an English one. Perhaps also higher probability of baked beans in an English one vs Irish one? But other than those, they seem to be pretty much the same. – BrendanMcK Jan 18 '14 at 11:28
  • In Ireland, I have never seen anything called an “English breakfast”. There is often something like a regular Irish breakfast (English breakfast with pudding but no beans) and a “full Irish breakfast” (with baked beans). – Relaxed Jan 18 '14 at 13:31
  • For completeness, if you ever see a "Scottish breakfast" advertised, it's like the above except it'll almost certainly include black pudding, the sausage should be a lorne sausage (square and usually both pork and beef), and there will usually be a fried potato scone instead of hash brown. Pretty rare outside of Scotland, sadly. – user56reinstatemonica8 May 16 '16 at 10:48

A Method to the Madness

However, a good definition comes from businessdictionary.com:

The ranking includes schools from 26 countries, including 35 in the US, 10in the UK and nine in China. Renmin University of China School of Business in Beijing rose furthest, climbing 18 places to 43rd. Four schools made it into the ranking for the first time. These are led by Cambridge Judge Business School at 36th. France’s Grenoble Business School is ranked 70th, Turkey’s Sabanci University School of Management is at99th, and Brazil’s Coppead is at 100th.

If they're trying to include some unique American food, biscuits and gravy is a fairly uniquely-American dish.

    I've never experienced that. A "Continental Breakfast" at some U.S. hotels might be just bread, especially sweet pastries. An "American Breakfast" almost always includes eggs and pork products. – jetset Jul 4 '17 at 8:42
  • @anomuse what you're describing is called a continental breakfast in the US. That would never be labeled an "American breakfast" by a hotel in the US. – Rob K Jul 25 '17 at 15:28
