We all love having a good breakfast, although each of us likes different things. In my house, for example, a fancy breakfast is some toast with scrubbed tomato, a croissant filled with butter and jam, orange juice, and coffee with milk. It’s a great breakfast, but since we all like to get out of the rut from time to time, I’ve been searching for the 13 best fancy breakfasts from many countries to inspire an original Sunday.
And if there is a day that lends itself to having a quiet breakfast, that is none other than Sunday, because we have already recovered from the fatigue of the week and we have time and desire to prepare more elaborate breakfasts. Let’s get started:
1. English Fancy Breakfast
The full English Fancy breakfast consists of a fried egg, sausage, mushrooms, baked beans, hash browns (potatoes cut into thin strips and fried), toast, and grilled tomatoes. In short, a lot of energy for a special day and the breakfast that we all delight in when we go to a hotel with a buffet breakfast.
As a curiosity, each area of the British Isles has its own breakfast with slight variations. The Irish breakfast has bacon and pudding, but no mushrooms, while the Scottish is a combination of English and Irish, with more meat if possible.
2. The American Fancy Breakfast
Although Americans have a wide variety of breakfasts, the most characteristic is pancakes with bacon and maple syrup, if possible stacked. If you want a sweet version, the pancakes with cream and blueberry jelly are also a great choice, with a little butter melting at the top of the pile.
3. The French Breakfast
The French are somewhat minimalist when it comes to breakfast, although they achieve excellence thanks to the quality of the ingredients: a coffee with milk and a good croissant are a good option to start the day. Toast with jam, with cooked ham, honey, butter, or chocolate cream is also a classic.
4. The Mexican breakfast
It is difficult to choose a single Mexican breakfast because there are many depending on the region. Perhaps the most striking are the Huevos Rancheros or Motuleños, which are fried eggs on an omelet with beans and tomato sauce, although the typical Machaca of Monterrey (eggs and chili peppers with flour tortillas) also seems to be a great breakfast.
5. The Turkish breakfast
The Turks are probably the most fanciful around breakfast, filling the table with plates full of all kinds of foods: feta cheese, tomato, cucumber, olives, toast, jams, raisins, pita bread, spaced sausages, tea … a real festival, although seeing the one that is mounted on the table, I don’t even want to think about collecting.
6. Italian Fancy Breakfast
Italians do not complicate their life much when it comes to breakfast, although they do take their time to prepare a good cappuccino that they accompany with a piece of pastries. It may not seem like a big deal, but knowing how Italians spend it with coffee, I think it can be considered a full breakfast, or at least intense.
7. The Swiss Fancy breakfast
Although a Swiss breakfast can be an authentic delicacy that brings together the best of all neighboring countries (French pastries, French sausages, Italian coffee …) the reality is that one of its most typical breakfasts is muesli accompanied by raisins, fruit, and milk or yogurt. It is perhaps not what you most want on a Sunday, but if it is about purifying the body after a night out, I see it as a very good choice.
8. Japanese Fancy breakfast
The Japanese do take breakfast seriously, making it one of the largest meals of the day, almost like lunch. There is no lack of white rice and miso soup, as well as some boiled vegetables and even grilled fish. I don’t know if I could have something like this in the morning, but if that makes you as productive as they are, it will be a question of thinking about it.
9. Singaporean Fancy breakfast
In Singapore, any breakfast worth its salt must include Kaya toast, which is nothing more than bread toast with coconut jam, one of the delicacies of Singaporean cuisine due to its great sweetness and exquisite flavor.
10. The Australian Fancy breakfast
Australians are also people of few mixes at breakfast, although it is true that their typical breakfast is quite peculiar. And it is that to accompany the milk tea, toasts with vegemite are served, a dark brown spread with a salty flavor made from brewer’s yeast extract, and which is a national culinary symbol in Australia and New Zealand.
11. The Israeli Fancy breakfast
One of the most typical breakfasts in all of Israel is the Shakshouka, a dish whose name in Hebrew means “all mixed together” and which represents very well this dish very appropriate for a brunch: poached eggs with tomato sauce accompanied by cucumber salad and tomato, and lots of bread for dipping. A sure hit.
12. German breakfast
Although for some time now, German breakfasts are lighter, originally they were a real feast that included practically everything: from coffee, cocoa, or tea accompanied with toast with jam, honey, and eggs, to pork sausages of all kinds ( salami, ham, sausages), assorted fruits and also cheese, without forgetting the typical rolls either.
13. Spanish Fancy breakfast
To put the finishing touch to these 13 best breakfasts from other countries to inspire an original Sunday, I thought that more than looking outside, we could take a look at how we eat breakfast in Spain, where we have acquired customs from our neighbors, with pastries and toast with butter and jam, but we have also preserved two of our very own breakfasts: churros with chocolate and toast spread with tomato
And, with all due respect for breakfasts from other countries, which all look spectacular, there is no better way to get up on a Sunday than with one of those Fancy breakfasts at the table.
