Vee, in some areas of the US south they eat biscuits (which are different than UK biscuits) covered in white gravy with sausage crumbled in it. :)

Thanks Donna. Over here gravy is always brown and made from meat juices and thickened. I suppose we would call 'white gravy' sauce.

Kathy, I didn't mean to upset anyone about gravy for breakfast It was just the thought of it on cornflakes that I found unusual. But each to his own . . . in this area some folk used to eat fried bacon with mint-sauce and in Wales they sprinkle sugar on lettuce.

Case of the Missing Cutlery, Kevin Allen

Vee, Sausage gravy over hot baking powder biscuits is delicious (but may be an acquired taste). Yes, it is the same as white sauce and best without lumps. It takes a new bride some time to acquire the knack. Ask me how I know.

One Knife, One Pot, One Dish -- Stéphane Reynaud

(Vee - Regarding gravy for breakfast - sorry if my comment came across as upset. I wasn't at all. I just meant to express that the concept of "breakfast food" has always seemed odd to me, even as a child. Why not a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a few potato chips? Or a leftover cold hamburger, or better yet, cold pizza? And now you know my eating habits.)

Vee, I haven’t heard of sugar on lettuce but southern kids put salt on watermelon and some southerners put cheddar cheese on top of apple pie.

Interesting food combos could be a whole thread on its own. :)

(Donna, in Yorkshire it used to be quite usual to eat a piece/lump of cheese with apple pie)

Carolyn I still can make lumpy sauce . . .
