Taylor Kinney, Kelly Severide, Chicago Fire

"Oreos. So, I'll have two chocolate Oreos and two vanilla Oreos, and I usually don't mess with them too much, but I dunk them in whole milk....bing, bang, boom, breakfast, out the door, and I'm ready for the day."

Eamonn Walker, Wallace Boden, Chicago Fire 

"A favorite breakfast that I love when I'm not working is an English Breakfast—two eggs, sausage, beans, toast. But I can't have that and then work, because my stomach wants to kind of just go to sleep."

Joe Minoso, Joe Cruz, Chicago Fire 

"A cup of coffee because it's usually 4:30 or 5 'o clock in the morning when we have to get up to do this show."

"It's the most beautiful plate you can possibly imagine with fruits that I had never seen before, and I ate the whole thing, no problem," says Morton.
