Going full British


It is not that often we have a brunch / big breakfast.
The only time we have them, is once in a while on a saturday. As on weekdays typical breakfast for us is slice of home made bread, butter/jam/nutella/chocolate.cheese etc..............and to the horror of my hubby, daughter and I go always for Nutella or chocolate :-)

And on sunday there is a tradition here in Belgium , most of them go to the bakers in the morning and buy pistolets, Croissant, Croissant filled with chocolate, raisin etc.....and here it is hubby who goes in the morning to buy them, our baker is really close by, just around the corner.....
only time I go is when it is hubbs birthday and fathers day and when it is Spring/summer, my excuse who wants to get up and go out so early in the cold weather :-)

So on sautuday as we all got up late I thought why not make the famoust full English breakfast. My daughter and hubyy just loves it,
When I Saw Meeta's theme for this months MM I knew exaclty what I was going to send her. A fully English Breakfast.

I don't think there is a recipe, just make scrambled aggs, fry bacon, sausages, mushroom and tomato, open up a tin beans and heat up , serve with toast and enjoy.

I think this kind of breakfast is only for cold climates. I remember I used to love it when in England but there is no way I would eat it in Greece. Great job.

An Open Book said...

Hi...first time on your blog...im based in england...and would like to add one more item to a full english breakfast which is something called black pudding, something very unappetising but a delicacy here and served with a full english breakfast in all pubs and restaurants.

Happy cook said...

An open book yeah I thought of doing the black pudding, but it would be a waste as no one except hubby likes it.
