Silog is a class of Filipino breakfast dishes containing sinangag (fried rice) and (egg). They are served with various meat dishes, such as tapa, longganisa or ham. The name of the accompanying meat dish determines the portmanteau name of the silog; for example, the former three would be known as tapsilog, longsilog, and hamsilog.

The first type of silog that was invented was the tapsilog. It was originally intended to be quick breakfast fare and the word originally established in 1980s and came from the Tapsi ni Vivian restaurant in Marikina City. According to Vivian del Rosario, owner of Tapsi ni Vivian, she was the first to use the term tapsilog.

Following the development of tapsilog, many other types of silog have been created, all based around fried rice, or garlic-fried, rice and fried egg, and suffixed with -silog. Examples (in alphabetical order) include:
