My polish breakfast
Dzien dobry, is what a typical Polish person would say at 10 a.m. on a lazy Sunday morning. Today I would like to share with you some ideas for a tasty breakfast with freshly baked bread and my two favorite polish bread spread recipes.
A word about the Polish cuisine
Polish cuisine has a long tradition and throughout centuries has been influenced by the culinary customs of different nations. Traditional food is rich in various kinds of meat, especially pork, chicken and beef. Soups are very popular, made with vegetables, broth, beets, and many other ingredients. Vegetables are in common use, among which cabbage, raw and fermented “Sauerkraut”, is probably the most famous. Polish cuisine includes different kinds of dumplings and noodles, the most popular of which are “pierogi” and “kluski”. And of course, there is no need to mention the excellent traditional bread and delicious sausages. A polish breakfast often consists of a sweet bun, called “drozdzowka”, which can be with different fillings – marmalade, poppy seed or vanilla pudding. On the other hand, there are many different spread recipes for bread, that mainly consists of eggs, cheese, and vegetables. The main meal of the day is generally eaten about 2 pm or in the early afternoon. Traditionally, it is composed of three courses: starting with a soup, followed by the main course usually including a serving of meat, vegetables or salads, and potatoes, rice or groats. Pastries and cakes are traditional types of dessert.
