Irish Farmhouse Cookbook
This cookbook is truly a treat all year round, but I love to flip through is pages in early spring around St. Patrick's Day. There is something about the green, rolling hills of Ireland that inspires me. And the recipes are authentic Irish favorites that make me long for traditional full breakfast with my family. I look forward to it every year!
Full Irish Breakfast
A Full Irish Breakfast takes the morning meal to a whole new level! It starts with traditional breakfast foods, like eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes and hot tea with milk...but it gets crazy good when you add in some grilled tomatoes, baked beans, black and white puddings and Irish soda bread with sweet butter and preserves! My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
What is black pudding? White pudding?
Wondering what black pudding and white pudding is? No, it's not chocolate and vanilla desserts! Actually, these puddings are breakfast sausages! Black pudding is made with the blood and fat of the pig, mixed with bread crumbs and seasonings. White pudding is basically the same thing, but without the blood!
It used to be that every Irish family had a backyard pig...when they butchered it, they rightly used EVERY part of the animal...Waste Not, Want Not! The tradition of blood sausage has been passed on through the generations and is still enjoyed today in a traditional Irish breakfast!
Full Irish Breakfast...Get Everything Here!
I love that Amazon makes it easy to prepare your Full Irish Breakfast! I ordered this package last year, complete with pure grass-fed Kerrygold Irish butter. I added homemade sourdough bread, local pastured eggs and some whole cream for the tea and we had an amazing feast!
I wish I could eat this way every day of the year...and still stay in my size 8's!
Traditional Irish Breakfast
May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.
Finish with an Irish Tea
The Irish will tell you that the only teas worth drinking are either Lyon's or Barry's...and usually they have a preference between the two! The best Irish teas blend perfectly with the water in Ireland, so you may not get quite the same effect when you have Irish breakfast tea in other places!
Irish Tea ~ Hot with lots of milk!
Irish Breakfast Tea - Finish Your Traditional Irish Breakfast with Tea
Don't forget to add lots of milk!
Twining Irish Breakfast Tea is my absolute favorite! I keep it in my kitchen year round and enjoy several times a week with lots of milk or cream. It is so smooth and a really nice treat! This tea pairs perfectly with your Full Irish Breakfast spread.
