I think the article should have mentioned cinnamon rolls and pastries, too. Many people think of these as breakfast rolls. I prefer cinnamon rolls, but I'll eat turnovers or fried pies, too.
As far as savory breakfast rolls, I really like a good breakfast burrito. The salsa on it seems to help me wake up, and it goes surprisingly well with coffee and the eggs in the burrito.
When I fix scrambled eggs at home, my favorite thing to add to them is salsa, and I'm apt to warm up a tortilla to eat with them instead of toast. Good stuff.
