Skillet English Breakfast

  • If you're yearning for a taste of London, this skillet English breakfast will satisfy your cravings in the States!

    Today is my 30th birthday!

    I am no longer in my 20’s and I’ve begrudgingly walked into the 30’s. Please tell me it’s not so bad? I already found some grey hairs and am thinking this is the end.

    Okay, but in all seriousness, I’m not that depressed about turning 30 because I obviously saw it coming and have been building up to it the entire past year but I am a bit sad that I can no longer say I’m in my 20’s. I LIVED for that, you guys. I think my 20’s were my favorite years, ever. College, irresponsibility and responsibility, first big girl job, marriage, my first dog, all the travels I did, and so so much more that I can’t even begin to list off.

    So with the knowledge that my 20’s were glowing and spectacular, I’m going to make sure my 30’s is just as great as my 20’s. I feel like the older you get, the more you understand what living life to the fullest means and how much harder you try to do that.

    Oh, and how could I forget that in my 20’s (28 to be exact), I fell in love with London? Well, I obviously didn’t forget because in lieu of us going to London for my 30th birthday (because of all the house stuff we thought would have been going on during this time), I’m bringing London to me with this skillet English breakfast! We had a traditional English breakfast at Duck and Waffle when we were in London a couple years ago.

    Now, before you English folks go on a raging fit in my inbox, I’m going to admit: I know this is not a traditional English breakfast! I know I don’t have some things in there that a traditional one would. I would say maybe this is half an English breakfast? Or just an English breakfast that I would eat, haha

    The one thing I will say you HAVE to get is real English canned beans straight from the UK. You can get them on Amazon and they’re a million times better than the canned beans we have in the United States. Molasses and brown sugar beans just sound gross but omg, the English Heinz Beanz (I even love their packaging) are soo good. They’re tomato-based and a bit vinegary and sweet.

    And you must dip your toast into the runny egg yolk and scoop the beans and all the other goodness with it.

    HAPPY BDAY!!!! as I tenured 30 year old (mine was last May!) I can definitely say that your 30’s are actually pretty cool — the first week might freak you out (totally normal) but then you realize hey, I made it through my 20’s, I’m doing what I want out of life, and I’m healthy — nothing to complain about ;)

    have the best day!! xo

    • Julie says:

      Thank you!! :) you’re so sweet!

  • Julie says:

    Happy birthday! The 30s aren’t bad at all but it was that year I had to start coloring my hair and I’ve had to change up my skincare routine now that I’m approaching 40 next year.

    Also, that breakfast looks amazing.

    • Julie says:

      Thank you so much! :)

  • Jennifer says:

    Happy Birthday! Love English breakfast and really loved Duck & Waffle when I went to London three years ago. I remember that apprehension about leaving my 20’s, but I think you’ll love your 30’s even more. You’ll experience more, gain more wisdom, etc. Plus the house!

    • Julie says:

      Thank you! I miss London!

    Happy Birthday! I think you’re on to something when you say that the older you get, the more you understand what living life to the fullest means to you. I guess your 20s are for figuring that out and your 30s are for applying it. However, I turn 30 in June and I still don’t quite have that figured out.

    • Julie says:

      Thank you! yes, that is so true!

  • Jenny Flake says:

  • Maria says:

    Happy birthday to you! Josh would love this for breakfast!

  • Stacie says:

    This looks so amazing, I’m going to have to order some beans and try it! Happy Birthday!

    • Julie says:

      Thank you! I hope you do try it!

  • Kevin @ Closet Cooking says:

    Now this is how you do breakfast!

  • Susan says:

    I love eggs with British baked beans! I’ve actually found the British Heinz baked beans (in the blue tin!) at World Market and at my local Ralph’s. So you might not have to order from Amazon. At the supermarket, they’re in the “ethnic” foods section.

    • Julie says:

      I’m gonna have to keep my eyes peeled! We have a World Market down the street so I’m going to check there next time too :)

  • cakespy.com says:

    GOSH this sounds amazing. I love an english breakfast and this looks classic, cozy, and perfect.

  • Joseph says:

    it’s called a fry up! if you want it really traditional, you’re gonna want black pudding, fried tomatoes, and fried mushrooms. but you’re not far off! love your recipes.

    • Julie says:

      Thank you!

    Wait until you turn 50! Nothing good about getting older from what I have seen.
