Five Great Foods Recommended in Britain

Britain has a great number of tasty, nay scrumptious dishes. There is more traditional British food than just fish&chips and mushy brussels sprout. Introducing five of the most recommended foods in Britain.

1. Scotch eggs

It’s a classic picnic item invented during the 18th century as a portable food for long carriage rides. It’s a hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage covered in breadcrumbs and then deep fried.

2. Savory Pies (Cornish Pasties)

Delight in sensational savory pies with crispy pastry and all kinds of fillings, including classic chicken and leek, gooey cheese and even a Christmas pie. It’s including Cornish Pasties in this category.white and brown floral textile

3. Bangers and Mash

Succulent tender sausages with mounds of mashed potatoes and boatloads of onion gravy. It’ s one of Britain’s best-known dishes and rightfully so. The reason why they called bangers refers to how sausages will often burst or bang in the pan if they are heated too quickly.

4. Crumpets

They are kind of like a cross between a pancake and an English muffin. The middle is filled with this honeycomb-like lattice so when you toast them and then put butter on top, the butter melts into the holes and fills up the little gaps. It’s so popular.

5. Scones

If you have ever thought that a scone was dry, it’s because you’ve been eating them wrong. People serve them with jam and clotted cream which is a very thick cream.
