Naigewron, I think the American heavy breakfast comes from rural roots of farmers and laborers that wound need that heavy breakfast as fuel for the day. In the Midwest a popular breakfast is a steak usually with eggs or something on the side. I tend to just go with the lighter breakfast unless its a weekend and I have time to cook up something hearty.
