Skillet English Breakfast

AS AN AMAZON ASSOCIATE I EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES

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.

I seriously wish I were a Londoner.

Julie, I must admit you are correct in saying this is just half of a traditional British breakfast, but regardless of that, I must say it made my mouth water ! Thanks for posting.

Yes, you can call this a traditional English breakfast, it only falls slightly short on being a full English fry-up. My local restaurant (in England) serves a a range of breakfasts culminating with the all encompassing ‘Belly Buster’ and also offer a mix and match of individual ingredients. The benefit of a home cooked full English is that you can use your favourite sausage or bacon (often too salty in restaurants). I must admit that I like to have tinned tomatoes instead of fresh tomatoes.

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