Oh my, I was in shock and awe at all the wonderful pictures of breakfast foods, I’d not know where to even begin, but I must try them all at some point, they looked too good to miss. Thank you for sharing all these wonderful foods.

All very delicious except for the changua, which just grosses me out. Fortunately it’s never been offered to me except in Villa de Leyva.

What a great post. I love all these breakfasts that you have here in one place that I can bookmark and come back to! I have both white and yellow arepa flour, Pan and Goya masarepa! I also have the summer off, which means I actually have time to make breakfast during the week! Thanks Erica! I love your recipes!
