I love all the differences between us. I didn't even realize there were so many. :lol:

Not trying to argue, but here, whipped butter is a big thing and it's often served in a "scoop" on pancakes. If you google image search "Ihop" (a big chain restaurant that specializes in pancakes), you'll see all sorts of weird-shaped globs of butter. Pats, scoops, and swirls from an icing bag. It looks like whipped cream or ice cream, but it's alllll butter.



For breakfast, today dd and I had oatmeal with mixed fresh berries and sliced almonds. I don't always have breakfast, but I make sure she does. She loves oatmeal so she eats that a lot, or we'll do an egg (scrambled or poached) with toast, or pancakes or waffles with a little bit of syrup or powdered sugar.

I think so.
It's just oats, no other grains. As far as I know, though, it's the same thing.

what you call bacon in that picture is called country ham here. Except ours is slightly thicker cut. I just cant imagine ice cream on a pancake unless it was a desert cake or a crepe. In America, that how big our butter is on pancakes

Oh, and I think whipped butter is just...whipped...butter.



It has a very light and fluffy texture. It doesn't do anything for me, but for some reason it's served at restaurants a lot. Maybe because it's easier to spread than regular butter.

Essentially.
They can keep it chilled and customers don't have to worry about wrecking their pancakes or whatever with cold, hard butter.



I have whipped for toast and such.

they are the same. Really porridge is the name of the dish and oatmeal is WHAT porridge is made of. We just say oatmeal and they say porridge.

I generally just use butter for cooking or with vegemite I hate making sandwiches the bread always tears if I'm using butter for SO's sandwiches.

Well, yeah, minus ice cream. I don't eat ice cream for breakfast :lol: When we go out to like ihop I will get the crepe passport which comes with crepes, bacon, eggs and hashbrowns. But, it's a dinner for me, cause I don't do breakfast foods at breakfast time.

I think the point is, whipped butter is a big thing in America.... whilst Australian's certainly love our booze (and that's our contribution to the obesity epidemic) we don't like heavy, saturated fat based foods, sugary foods etc. I am sure that will change but say you went to a cafe/ restaurant here it would be more like:
