An English breakfast for the Royal Wedding

The Royal Wedding is two days away! Here are two traditional English breakfast ideas for the big day.


The Royal Wedding is two days away! And now that the official schedule has been released, I’m not ashamed to say I’ll be awake at 5:30am to watch the procession. Of course, what is commemorating an event like this without food? I’m planning on preparing a traditional English “fry up” – a plate filled to the brim with peameal bacon, fried eggs, fried tomatoes, baked beans, breakfast sausages and toast with butter.

If you’re feeling a bit more ambitious, try an early morning English tea party! Don your fanciest hat and whip up some White chocolate scones and dainty tea sandwiches. Or, use a frilly cookie cutter to cut pretty shapes out of rye bread. Sandwich some Dijon-dill shrimp salad in between.

Regardless of your dining choice, the most important part of the breakfast is the beverage. Skip the morning coffee – after all, a monumental British event like this deserves the best cup of tea! Our online intern, Ashlee, shows us the art of brewing the perfect cup of Earl Grey, English Breakfast or Darjeeling – a tea fit for royalty.
