How We Like Our Breakfast Cooked

When you have a classic American breakfast . . . bacon, eggs, toast, and coffee . . . how do you like it prepared?

A new survey polled 1,300 Americans.  And for the average person, the answer is scrambled eggs . . . LIGHTLY toasted bread . . . somewhat crispy bacon . . . and coffee with a decent amount of cream in it.
