You can’t beat a traditional English breakfast. Also known as a ‘fry up’, a traditional English breakfast, according to the English Breakfast Society, features an array of ingredients including bacon, eggs, sausage, black pudding, baked beans, grilled tomato, fried bread and toast.
Over the years, the preparing of a traditional English breakfast has evolved, however the contents have stayed the same.
The tradition of an English breakfast dates back to the Victorian era when two meals a day was the norm – breakfast and dinner. For the landed gentry, breakfast was a time to socialise and impress your guests so was a very leisurely affair, much like dinner is today.
