The following are some of the favourite traditional food of the British:
Fish and chips:
Fish was available in plenty in the country, and it was one of the most the staple foods in England. Fish and chips is an iconic meal for the English, and they have been eating this for years. They usually make the fish by coating it with haddock and cod into a batter, and that batter is fried till it becomes crispy and the fish on the inside becomes very soft. The dish is usually paired with chips and peas.
Bubble and squeak:
Bubble and squeak is a traditional English dish, but it has lost its popularity over the years. Bubble and squeak is one of the best ways to finish up all your leftovers. It is also delicious food, and it is quite simple to make it. If you happen to have cabbage or any other vegetable that is leftover you can use that to make Bubble and squeak. All you have to do is take a pan and add butter and the leftover vegetables you have; once these vegetables have turned brown. Add mashed potatoes to the vegetable and serve it with fried eggs to make it even more delicious.
Bangers and mash:
Bangers and mash are similar to Bubble and squeal, but instead of vegetables, they use sausages. Bangers and mash are made by cooking the sausages in the oven, and it is served with mashed potatoes and fried onions on the top. Sometimes a little bit of gravy is added to the dish to make it more delicious.
Bread and butter pudding:
English love eating desserts. Initially, Bread and butter pudding is the dessert which the poor people in England would make with leftover bread. They would steam the bread, add few dried fruits and soak it in milk. The mixture is finally baked in the oven and served. Initially, people ate it as a main dish, but as years went by, people started to consider it as a dessert.
The list will never be complete if it does not contain the roast dinner. The roast dinner consists of mashed potatoes, carrots, sprouts, beans, broccoli, pudding, gravy and roasted meat. The roast dinner was the main meal that was prepared on Sundays and when family and friends gather together for a special occasion.
Bacon is a popular dish that is loved by everyone and bacon sandwiches are quite popular in England. Bacon is fried and kept in-between two slices of bread and toasted. It is a delicious snack, and the people of England love it.
