Simple Breakfast/簡単な朝食

Fried eggs. The two on the left are expensive, free-range ones, while the two on the right are cheap ones (about ten yen each). Note the difference in color.

In Japan, even cheap eggs often have an expiration date clearly indicated on them each, because eggs are often eaten raw in Japan.
For eggs, the expiration date is the date on and before which the egg can be eaten raw.

My son sometimes craves ham and eggs, but I don't like it. So, I cut ham into stripes and pan-fry them without oil, and season with pepper and salt.
I almost always have natto for breakfast.
