Default What is the best breakfast before a hike?

Anyone here know what would be the best possible breakfast before a hike? What would give me the most energy?

I need all the energy I can get...

Micky Dee's BLT Bagel, hash Browns , and a large Starbucks Coffee.
Note this is high in salt (1300 grms) which will help you retain water.

Really you can't go wrong with bacon & eggs & pancakes. Lots of protein, fat, and carbs. It may seen a bit heavy for the first hour but after that I find I'm good till around 4 hr.

I on the other hand eat a mix of:
1 cup of slow oatmeal
1/3 cup of slivered almonds
a handful of currents
a smaller handful of chocolate chips
some small chips of candied ginger
and 2 cups of milk.
eaten cold as in not cooked and this lasts me till 3 pm from 6 am when I eat breke. I haven't any idea of nutrient values but it works for me.

The idea of eating when I first get up makes me feel sick, but if I'm hiking I force down some oatmeal with a bit of milk, a banana, and maybe some kind of egg thing picked up on the way. This seems to be the combo that works for me. Oh and coffee...very important!

Most important is plenty of beer the night before - carbo loading. Seriously, as long as you drink enough water to avoid dehydration it works.

If on time, I have oatmeal with trail mix stirred in,
but usually it's Tim's 12 grain bagel toasted with cream cheese and coffee mmmmm
