Bit of a trivial question here for our American contributors, but I often here in movies or read in books people ordering a breakfast in America of say bacon, eggs, hash brown and Jelly? What is jelly in this context? Is there one type or several. 

Here in Australia jelly is a sweet you eat with ice cream. Puzzled 😕

The jelly you're talking about is Jello to Americans. When Americans say jelly they're referring to jam.

+1 mello dude. To be spread on toast. 

Not to my taste, but superior to cooked tomato...for brekkie!  😄

Grilled or fried tomatoes are good!

Frying some blood sausage and baked beans right now!

 

Jelly is slightly different from jam. Doesn’t have as much fruit and more fruit juice and gelatin. Kind of in between jam and jello. Unfortunately in U.S., both are made with high amounts of HFCS. The smaller brands tends to be better in not using the stuff.

Mrs Skids makes her own jam. Beautiful on toast.  Never been a big fan of jelly, looks too much like a special effect monster puke on Dr Who.

As an American, I'd like to share one of our jokes.  

What's the difference between jelly and jam?

Well, I'm not going to jelly my dick up your butt. 

🙂

Btw, jam has pieces of fruit in it, jelly does not, jello is for dessert.

Thanks everyone for clearing that up. I had heard it was like jam but couldn’t imagine putting it on bacon and eggs. It’s all down to what you grow up with I guess. I will have to give it a try.

Sorry to disagree St Stephen but I like nothing better than lots of fried (red) tomatoes with my bacon and eggs, heaven!

So....Philois....what is a classic breakfast for Australia?

 

Axle Grease on toast commonly known as Vegemite. A concoction of left over Brewers yeast with various vegetable and spice additives. Bet you're all drooling over that! Yummo!

We all grew up on this stuff.

There was an advertising jingle to brain wash us as kids:

We're happy little Vegemites
As bright as bright can be.
We all enjoy our Vegemite
For breakfast, lunch, and tea.
Our mummies say we're growing stronger
Every single week,
Because we love our Vegemite
We all adore our Vegemite
It puts a rose in every cheek.

Jelly doesn't come in jars. This is jelly

This is jam on toast

For Americans, dessert thing above that comes out of mould is what we call Jello or gelatin-dessert.

Jelly is more concentrated and does come in jars:

it’s similar in thickness and consistency to Baxter’s mint jelly used on meats. Although Coleman’s Mint Sauce is closer to jam since it’s chunkier. Here’s how to make homemade jelly.

Although I certainly don’t like it on my bacon or eggs. It belongs on toast only! Or biscuits, or croissants.

 

My wife’s British so we have Marmite for toast of course!

 

And I like this hot sauce on my scrambled or omelette eggs.

have you tried apple-butter or lemon curd?

Marmite is one of those love it or hate it things.

 

I hate it! :wacko:

 

2 great nations separated by a common language eh :goofy:

 

As it's Sunday morning, I'm going to make a cup of tea and have some jam on toast.

Sat in a diner in Salinas one morning I was just opening a small jar of Marmite when an adjacent person called out loudly “Marmite ...Marmite ...that stuff tastes like a cats ass” .....whole diner laughs ...not to be at a disadvantage I leapt to my feet, proffered a hand and said in an equally loud voice “ Sir, I’d like to shake your hand, I’ve never met anyone before who tasted a cats ass, then admitted it to so many people”

That's funny, because here the expression that's the cat's ass means it's great.  Like the bee's knees.
