  1. I used to work in an English Restaurant more than 12 years ago. I used to eat the proper English food and I can tell you for sure than the way english people eat is better than in France. A good breakfast in the morning is pretty healthy because pepole don’t eat so much during all the day and don’t get fat. Thanks England for this … ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Bacon. (and the circular one is black pudding.= a type of sausage made by cooking blood or dried blood with a filler until it is thick enough to congeal when cooled…so therefore not “meat”)

  2. Questo per me potrebbe essere il pranzo …. non riuscirei mai a mangiare queste cose a colazione !!!!! Ma noi italiani, dal punto di vista del cibo, siamo molto diversi da voi ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Its interesting that the British begin their day with baked beans and American’s tend to end theirs with them. I guess we really are polar opposites. (No wonder I’d rather be a Brit.) ๐Ÿ™‚ Looks SuperSpectacularDelicious!

  4. It appears that in England, people aren’t as much for using butter/margarine/jelly/jam/fruit spread/preserves on their toast for breakfast like many people in the US like to put toppings on bread or toast-perhaps not even Nutella spread that’s made with chocolate & hazelnuts.

    1. I think you will find that the English breakfast, pre war, which consisted of a cooked breakfast everyday, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for instance was the norm. Post war many have had a staple diet of a bowl of cerea, boiled egg and toast with more toast spread with butter and marmalade. In the last fifteen years or so we have become more variant in our preferences, some like to have bacon eggs, or a bacon butty (sandwich with bacon inside), personally I have a bowl of porridge as it is the best possible breakfast for someone with diabetes and weight issues. Give me an English breakfast (which often comes with sausages and an alternative form of eggs such as scrambled) and I will happily eat it, so long as I don’t have to cook it…:)

  5. I remember when I went on an R&R to Ireland, and this was the kind of breakfast I ate every single morning at the various hotels I stayed in… I am a big tomatoholic, so the tomato with my breakfast was yummy, yummy… Ireland is a must travel to !!!

  6. I have never travelled outside my country, but with this picture to draw on, I can set myself up as an expert on English breakfasts, but the snag is, a smarty will trip me up on the taste of the servings but taste more than seeing is more a matter of opinion.

  8. I think tomatoes in an omelette always taste good, as long as they’re in season. May be nicer than tomatoes as a side dish, like in this picture. These tomatoes still look pretty good slightly burned, though the way they are.

  9. I just noticed something-based on this photo, Brits aren’t as keen on sweet foods/condiments as Americans; since I’ve lived in the US all my life & never traveled elsewhere, I’m accustomed to breakfast (mostly), like toast or a roll/bagel with margarine & some type of jelly/preserves. Many Americans for example of course like to add sugar or Sweet n’ Low/Splenda or other equivalent sweetener to their cold or hot cereal. Interesting how there’s a contrast.

  10. @amandalannon, I just researched what kedgeree is-I don’t think I’d want it for breakfast, since it indicates it’s flaked fish, but I might enjoy it for lunch or dinner, depending on what type of fish it is. (In the pic it did look appealing).

  11. The Brits are doing something smart by eating breakfast & not skipping like some Americans do-breakfast is the most important meal of the day, as I’ve heard countless times, & eating in the morning prevents sickness in the tummy & keeps people from overeating during their later meals & as a result, putting on weight; I understand eating late at night causes people to gain weight especially if they do so on a regular basis.

  12. What if they make a sandwich out of the tomato, also lettuce; maybe bacon as well, & I think that would be delicious during any time of day with a little bit of salt/pepper/mayo. Do Brits eat grilled cheese? If so, that’s always delectable with/without tomato & ham; maybe a little bit of mustard as well. Yummy! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. I haven’t noticed anyone saying who’s visited/lived/lives in England anything about the Brits eating cold cereal for breakfast like Americans are in the habit of doing, or granola bars. Very interesting contrast. Looks like Brits don’t eat “on the run” the way people in the US do, which of course is much healthier physically/emotionally/mentally/psychologically-they don’t get nausea or heartburn!
