Breakfast in England

When asked, “What is a typical  English dish?”, fish and chips or roast beef or potatoes may be the typical answer. Yes true, but there is a lot more to English food. Pork chops, lamb chops, Yorkshire pudding, and dishes with unique names like Toad-in-the-hole or black pudding are also some of the popular traditional British dishes. However, dishes listed above are all something that is likely eaten for lunch or dinner. The question is, what do English people eat for breakfast?

Breakfast in England nowadays is more likely to be a bowl of cereal and toast, with orange juice or a cup of coffee. porridge is also popular, especially in the winter time. However the ‘Full English’ is considered the traditional English breakfast. This dish consists of eggs, bacon, sausage, fried bread, baked beans and mushrooms. Not many people eat this traditional dish anymore, but it is always served in hotels or guest houses.

I myself usually have a slice of toast and yogurt with vegetable juice for breakfast, completely different from what is considered the ‘Japanese traditional breakfast’. As for me, I am very interested in trying the Full English.

Are you interested in trying the ‘Full English’? Also, what other traditional English dishes are you interested in trying?

    The “full English” is one of the great British traditions.

    And yes, I still eat it in Japan. Its easy find all the ingredients, though I miss British bacon.

    It’s not low-fat, so I generally only have it on a Sunday, and it’s one of the highlights of my week!

    The best English breakfast is unquestionably made by…my mum!

    Oh, by the way, at least one American movie star LOVES the “full English”!
