10 Tasty English Foods

1. Toad in the Hole

The first item on this list of tasty English foods is Toad in the Hole. I remember someone giving me their version of Toad in the Hole when I was a child. It was a piece of bread with a hole ripped out of the middle and a fried egg cooked into the hole.

15 years later my housemate in Newcastle cooked up Toad in the Hole the proper English way. It was spectacular in comparison to what I had as a child. Sausages baked in a Yorkshire pudding with gravy.

2. Spotted Dick

The first time I heard about spotted dick was in the movie King Ralph. I admit that I have never tried it but would like to. It is a dried fruit pudding served with custard.

3. Pigs in Blankets

Pigs in blankets are sausages wrapped in bacon. The first time I ate pigs in blankets was in China. An American couple served them up for Thanksgiving, and the wife was a vegetarian!

4. Bubble and Squeak

Bubble and squeak is a great way to get rid of leftover roast vegetables. Use potato as the main ingredient. Shallow fry it with whatever leftover vegetables you’ve got.

6. Fish and Chips

I’m not a fan of fish and chips but it is classic English fare. There was a “chippy” in every town I saw, even the very small ones.

7. Tea and Scones

I had an English girlfriend once and she LOVED tea and scones. To be more precise, teas and scones with jam and cream. If you have a sweet tooth, this one is for you.

8. Cornish Pasty

The Cornish Pasty is a baked pastry filled with minced meat and vegetables. It is great “on-the-go” snack from the bakery. The Cornish part fo the name is because of Cornwall region in England. I guess they made it there first.

9. Full English Breakfast

Thought to be a great hangover cure, the full English breakfast is a big fry-up. The exact ingredients used depends on what is available. It often includes eggs, bacon, sausages, tomatoes, mushrooms, blood pudding, baked beans, etc.
