Guy Fieri's Favorite Breakfast As A Notable Egg-Hater
By Kalea Martin
Guy Fieri likes most things on his show, but when it comes to eggs, he’s incredibly picky and even has his own chickens to ensure the eggs he does eat are fed all-natural ingredients. Since his standards for them are so high, Fieri usually avoids eggs altogether and isn’t entirely fond of the meal they’re commonly associated with either.
Fieri reportedly only eats breakfast twice a month. According to an interview with Insider in 2021, his breakfast indulgence is stone-ground grits with ham and red-eye gravy — the same breakfast Fieri’s North Carolina-native mother used to make him while growing up — and the Southern staple is his go-to dish anytime he has people over.
When filming "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives," Fieri revealed to People that he always sticks to a liquid-only breakfast that includes freshly squeezed vegetables, fruit juice, and an Americano. "When you do three locations in a day, two dishes per location, it can very quickly escalate," he explained to the outlet.
