For those of you transitioning from meat and dairy to a vegan-friendly diet, there are a few meals out there that are particularly hard to avoid. English Breakfast is one of them. Usually made with sausages, beans, eggs, black and white pudding, roasted tomato, hash browns and maybe a slice of toast, this dish is a favorite for breakfast across the world.
Changing this dish into a vegan meal means that there is a lot more effort to put into this dish but it is worth it! Fry some asparagus instead if you do not want to use a vegan sausage. Once you taste the dish, you will see that the importance is in the spices, herbs, oil and vegan butter! The rest is texture and this can easily be replaced with vegan alternatives.
The full English breakfast, also known as a fry up, dates back as far as the 1300s, making it one of the longest standing traditional dishes in English history. Back then, a breakfast of this sort was often deemed a luxury and therefore was reserved for only the richest in society.
During the Middle Ages, breakfast for most was thick porridge or ale and bread, and this often had to fend off hunger until dinner in the evening. Grim, right? Those who were better off might stretch to adding cheese, cold meat or dripping to their ale and bread.
By the time of the Industrial Revolution, the traditional English breakfast was slowly moving away from the richest and becoming a more wide-spread dish enjoyed by many manual workers who wanted a hearty meal to set them up for a long day’s labor.
Breakfast was still seen as the most important meal of the day by the wealthy as it would set them in good stead for a day of hunting. This tradition would continue for years to come, and by the time Queen Victoria took the throne in June 1837, the meal was more popular than ever.
