What to Eat in England?
These biscuit-like sweet snacks are perfect when served with jam and clotted cream during the “cream tea”.
Shepherd’s pie is a casserole made out of mashed potatoes and stew. It’s a perfect lunch idea for a weekend outing.
This is a perfect breakfast combo. What is this, you may ask? Well, this meal is actually a hard or soft-boiled egg wrapped in sausage meat, coated in bread crumbs and baked or deep-fried.
These small griddle cakes are most often made with only flour, water (or milk), and yeast. Pair it up with tea, and voila – you’re English.
Bangers and Mash
These banger sausages are really banging. Served with mashed potatoes, they are an amazing calorie intake and will keep you satisfied for a long time.
British Fish and Chips
Besides tea, it doesn’t get any more British than this. It is basically just deep-fried fish with French fries, that Brits call chips. Finger-licking yummy.
Victoria sponge cake
This yummy sponge cake has layers of jam and cream, placed between two slices. The top is usually sprinkled with sugar and/or decorated with fruit. It was named after Queen Victoria, who loved this particular dessert and ate a slice every day alongside her afternoon tea.
There are a lot of varieties of this breakfast, but most commonly it includes eggs, fried tomatoes, and mushrooms, bread, bacon, and sausages.
It’s not quite like Rachel Green made it, but we’re safely betting it is way tastier (sorry Rach). This yummy dessert is made with egg custard poured over the sponge cake. Plus, it has all these fruits in it, and whipped cream all over it. Y-U-M.
Cream tea isn’t a meal per-say. It’s actually a time in a day where you sip the afternoon tea with a light meal, such as scones with jam and cream. The question is, though… Which comes first, the jam or the cream?
