Eggy Bread

Its name alone sounds pretty weird, doesn't it? 'Eggy Bread.' Doesn't just mean you simply put an egg, be it sunnyside or scrambled, on your toast and you're good to go? Well, not exactly! 'Eggy Bread' is essentially the British version of French toast, wherein you soften slices of bread with, of course, egg, as well as milk and butter. The main difference between the two is that the former is more savory while the latter is sweeter. Nevertheless, you can always add a dash of cinnamon or maple syrup to sweeten up your Eggy Bread in the morning.

Scottish Porridge

Probably the healthiest option on this list, Scottish Porridge is a popular breakfast option in, you guessed it Scotland! The country has long been known for its cereal crops, particularly grains, since the Middle Ages. So it makes sense that porridge, which is made of grains, has become a breakfast mainstay in their local cuisine. Eventually, since Scotland remains under the United Kingdom, the dish's popularity spread out throughout the other territories within Great Britain. As already mentioned, it helps that it's a healthy option, chock-full of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. It's also versatile, wherein a pinch of salt can turn it savory while topping it with fruit brings out a certain sweetness.

Kippers

The Brits are known for their fish & chops, especially in London, but there's another type of fish that mostly works for breakfast: Kippers. This British breakfast dish consists of a sliced and gutted smoked herring that's salted to perfection. Created in 1843 by notable fish processor John Woodger, it eventually became a popular breakfast option in the 19th and 20th centuries. Although the process of smoking the herring takes time, it actually has a lot of benefits, most of which are nutritional. Nowadays, you can enjoy it with toast, omelet, all buttered up, and more!

Kedgeree

You can't have a list of delicious British breakfast food without mentioning Kedgeree! This Indian-influenced rice dish consists of smoked fish, hard-boiled eggs, and curry-spiced rice. It's a savory treat that often ventures into a spicy territory, a world away from the sweeter options that most Western breakfast dishes are known for. In many ways, it's even regarded as the British version of khichdi, a spicy Indian rice dish with lentils and other herbs. Of course, since English palettes aren't used to the spices from the south, Kedgeree is a lot more toned-down in terms of its spiciness.
