Spanish Breakfast Food to Try at Home

April 26, 2020
Spaniards aren't exactly known as morning people, are they? They have such a zest for life that you expect many of them to party all night long. Especially in cities like Barcelona and Madrid, where the names of the game are passion and having a good time. Yet, at the same time, the country's cuisine has some of the most scrumptious breakfast food you'll ever taste. Their comfort food is definitely no joke and truly live up to their name. Although Spanish cuisine isn't as popular as those of the country's neighbours, the French and the Italians, their breakfast food is still top-notch!

Cafe Con Leche

What's a good morning without a little sweetness? If you want your breakfast to instantly perk you up, go for the Cafe con Leche. Simply put, it's coffee with a little bit of milk. In Italy, it's known as the cappuccino, and just similar to this country, it's also a hugely favourite breakfast treat. The caffeine will give you the buzz you need to wake up while the milk lightens the flavour up do your palette won't be overwhelmed so early in the day. And, of course, the sweetness provides that zestful rush. Fortunately, cafe con leche is easy and quick to make, so you can still enjoy it even when you're busy.

Churros

Speaking of something sweet, another popular breakfast treat is churros. This is the ultimate Spanish sweet, it's one of the most beloved snacks to ever come from the Mediterranean country. There are multiple churros places all over the country, some of which have become tourists havens themselves. This sugary treat is simple and easy to make, yet it's so tasty too. And it works well with hot chocolate. In fact, you can even say that having churros with hot chocolate is as customary to the Spanish as having afternoon tea is for the English.

Magdalena

Why not a little zest in the morning? Something light and fluffy, but with that tangy twist of lemon! Yep, this is the Magdalena. They may seem plain and simple at first, but once you take that first bite, especially right after you wake up, you'll want to have more and more. It's the sort of sweet that's not so overwhelming to the palette, even though it's lemon-flavoured. The fruity kick is enough to perk you up, but the soft texture and the light fluffiness. just feels so comforting to your taste buds. Fortunately, they're also easy to bake!

Torrijas

Now, if you want to go all out with the sweetness for breakfast, go for some Torrijas! They're basically the Spanish version of the classic French toast, though made much sweeter and a bit more flavorful than the latter. Made out of leftover bread that no one wants to touch, you mix in some eggs, milk, and a dash of cinnamon and you've got yourself quite the breakfast tweet. If your teeth are prone to aching, this probably isn't for you. That's how sweet the Torrijas really is. Just by looking at it, you'll already feel a toothache coming along!

Tortilla de Patata

How about something savoury now? If you want a nice Spanish breakfast that's as traditional as it can get, the Tortilla de Patata is right up your alley. Essentially a potato omelette, this dish is all about texture. Feel the delicious contrast of the softened yet still chunky potatoes and the fluffy omelette. Though you may need some salt and other condiments to make it more flavorful, there's no question that you'll end up feeling full after your meal. Yet, at the same time, it's also light and just right. It won't make you feel that bloated at all.

Tortas de Aceite

When you're on the go and you simply don't have time to stay on the table for a more normal breakfast, you can always pack some Tortas de Aceite. Crispy thin biscuits made out of wheat flour, olive oil, and almonds, this is arguably the healthiest option on this list. It's also the easiest to eat. You can make a fresh batch the night before and, the moment you wake up, just grab a few, put them in a bag, and you're off! Perhaps the most important and common ingredient here is the olive oil. It's practically a breakfast mainstay in Spain. Having it in cookie form just makes the meal a whole lot easier.

Roscon de Reyes

But what do you eat during the holidays? What's the main breakfast during those special times? A treat that will really make you feel the holiday spirit? Roscon de Reyes! Translated as the "King's Cake," this is one of the most popular Christmas treats that Spanish families love making and eating during the holidays. Very similar to your standard fruitcake, it's made even more flavorful with the amounts of brandy and special fruits within the ingredients. It's also such a common snack that, apart from breakfast, people also have it for dessert for lunch, dinner, and mid-afternoon and midnight snacks! It must taste so good for them to eat it this often!
