Scottish Breakfast

In celebration of Robbie Burns Day I wanted to do a post in celebration of Scotland, and my favourite meal, Scottish Breakfast.  I’m a few months late, but still wanted to share anyway.  My hubby and I went to Scotland for our honeymoon and stayed predominantly in Bed & Breakfasts, we were pleasantly surprised at their Scottish Breakfasts every morning, as vegetarians it is not always easy to find food but everyday we had an AMAZING breakfast, full of protein and delicious. Scottish Breakfast has become a staple in our house, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  My kids eat it and love it, my hubby demolishes it, and there are never leftovers.

Scotland will always have a special place in our heart, it is a magical country, from visiting the ruins of castles (by traipsing through sheep fields), to visiting standing stone circles, and my husband’s favourite, distillery tours and sampling all the amazing scotch.  Enjoying this breakfast brings back memories of a simpler time, before kids, when it was just the two of us and we were so in love on or honeymoon, and all we had to worry about was delicious food, where we were hiking to that day, and attempting to drive on the wrong side of the road without being squashed by a truck or running over a sheep.

Forget the #haggis! Lets celebrate #RobbieBurns day with a #ScottishBreakfast #vegetarian Click To Tweet

Robbie Burns is a Scottish poet.  Robbie Burns suppers are popular everywhere, usually celebrated with haggis, cheese plates, soup, and lots of scotch, maybe some Highland Dancing and bagpipe music.  The bringing in of the haggis is a solemn and very serious event at a Burns day supper, there is a address to the haggis and pomp and ceremony bringing it in.  They recite Robbie Burn’s poetry, graces, and general merriment.  Robbie Burns supper celebrations have been held on or around his birthday since five years after his death, starting in 1803.

Here is an easy way to celebrate Robbie Burns day in your house with a delicious Scottish Breakfast full of protein and vegetarian friendly for dinner, lunch, or the typical breakfast.

Recipe type: Vegetarian
Cuisine: Scottish

  1. Pretty much however is your easiest way to make it, I go the easy way and buy the frozen hash browns, cans of vegetarian baked beans in tomato sauce, then bake the tomatoes in the oven with some salt and pepper, fry the mushrooms, and lastly a fried egg. Assemble it all on a plate and serve with ketchup, watch your family demolish their favourites and savour the fact that they ate so many vegetables and protein in one meal and it didn't even take a lot of effort!
