Breakfasts with Latin Flavor

Ideas for when you're tired of cereal and toast...

In South America, breakfast tends to be light, in anticipation of the big midday meal. A sandwich or bread with coffee and fruit is typical. Sweeter things like doughnuts, pancakes, bagels, muffins are more likely to be enjoyed in the late afternoon, as a snack with coffee. 

Traditional Latin American breakfast and midmorning snack fare - empanadas, arepas, cheese breads, quinoa breads, and creative combinations of ham, cheese and bread  - tend to have protein and will give you energy for a busy...MORE morning.
