Beat two eggs
add 1 cup of granola and let it sit for 15 mins while
you get your bike and stuff ready
fry it in butter or your favorite cooking lube
If you can't eat the whole thing, put it in a baggy
and carry it in your back pocket

Cereal just makes me hungry in a half hour. Heres my secret for long rides:

6-8 buttermilk pancakes with REAL maple syrup.
2 fried eggs
Large glass of water with Emergen-C powder
4 large stuffed green olives

The flap-jacks provide the carbos and the eggs keep them from digesting too fast, so you don't get ravenous an hour later. Emergen-C has all sorts of good stuff in it, potassium, B-vits, etc. And olives have some good fat and salt. Just don't start too fast and vomit.

All those other foods will make you tired and slow, plus it takes ALOT of energy to process in your fruits, melons are great!

Looking at some TDF menus, Omelettes and Rice are good starters.

I make rice and raisins with honey for my super-fuel days.

Other days: OJ, Aspirin 81mg, coffee, two fried eggs, extra old cheddar, toast. Probably a few pieces of fruit also.

After Ride breakfast: Potato Omelettes.
