What would you eat for a typical English breakfast?

I finally have time to update my blog after the rough but rewarding camping in the Lingshan Mountain near the city of Beijing with my new friends. We ate baked food only in that mountainous areas, so I’d love to talk about what people eat for breakfast in Britain.

What is the typical English breakfast?

Most people around the world seem to think a typical English breakfast consists of eggs, bacon, sausages, fried bread, mushrooms and baked beans all washed down with a cup of coffee. Nowadays, however, a typical English breakfast is more likely to be a bowl of cereals, a slice of toast, orange juice and a cup of coffee.

Many people, especially children, in England will eat a bowl of cereal. They are made with different grains such as corn, wheat, oats etc.

In the winter many people will eat “porridge” or boiled oats.

What is the traditional English breakfast?

The traditional English breakfast consists of eggs, bacon, sausages, fried bread, baked beans and mushrooms. Even though not many people will eat this for breakfast today, it is always served in hotels and guest houses around Britain.

The traditional English breakfast is called the “Full English” and sometimes referred to as “The Full English Fry-up”.
