  1. The commonly assualted - Bread & Egg
  2. Cornmeal Porridge &
  3. Callaloo and boiled bananas

1) Egg & Bread - Jamaican Style

jamaican_breakfast_bread_and_egg

This go-to breakfast is prepared in 5 minutes or less using one or more eggs. Fried to your liking, adding a pinch of salt and black pepper and placed between two slices of (usually) hardough bread .

The egg is sometime accompanied by fried plantains.

2) Cornmeal Porridge - Jamaican Style
