I've just had breakfast in an all America old fashioned diner. It wasn't too bad either. I've just got one question...

What's the obsession with fatty fried potatoes for breakfast?

Yesterday I had a choice of 3 different types of fried potatoes, or I could swap it for fruit salad (which I did). Then today at a completely different diner I got offered 2 different types of fried potatoes. I don't want greasy potato for breakfast with my bacon and eggs - just bacon, eggs, and some toast. A bit of tomato or mushrooms wouldn't go a miss either, but I certainly don't want chips - yes, one of the options was chips.

One other thing, why can't they have easy names for how you'd like your eggs cooked?
