What people eat for breakfast in 25 countries around the world

By Sarah Schmalbruch, INSIDER From Business Insider

Breakfast has long been called the most important meal of the day, as it gives us energy to make it through the morning.

But not all countries start their day with the same kind of food.

Inspired by a HostelBookers.com post by Victoria Philpott and a Quora post, we took a look at some classic breakfast choices from around the world.

Whether it’s beef stew in or baked cheese pancakes in , each country does their first meal of the day a little differently.

Germans have quite the spread for breakfast. There’s a little bit of everything: cold cuts, cheese, fresh rolls, butter and jam, and sometimes Nutella.

Cubans like a lighter breakfast: cafe con leche — coffee with milk — served with a tostada, which is sliced bread that is buttered and grilled. The bread is often dunked into the coffee.

A typical English breakfast includes fried eggs, sausage, bacon, and beans.
