Americans Once Ate A Very Off-The-Wall Food For Breakfast
While a normal breakfast for Americans today is bacon, eggs, and toast, the 1900s saw many families enjoying upscale meats in the morning.
According to author Marion Harland, before Great Depression-era food trends took over, families would go all out on breakfasts with foods such as jellied veal with rice and eggs.
The turn of the 20th century had Americans enjoying cold meat with rice covered in gravy if they were lucky and a mixture of canned fruits and hominy if they weren't.
Many families in the 1920s also enjoyed fish for breakfast. Americans ate strange foods for breakfast well into the 1970s, where eating chicken liver in the morning was common.
It wasn't until the 1960s that the cereal we know today hit shelves. Before then, most people commonly enjoyed bits of protein and wheat products such as oatmeal and toast.
