What’s in a Scottish Breakfast?

So, what is in a Scottish breakfast? Ingredients vary from place to place, but the basic ingredients to a traditional Scottish breakfast include square lorne sausage, link sausages, fried egg, streaky bacon, baked beans, black pudding and/or haggis, tattie scones, fried tomatoes and mushrooms, and toast. And, don’t forget a cup of Scottish tea to wash it all down.

How to Make a Scottish Breakfast

Firstly, take two frying pans and use one for the meat and one for the non-meat ingredients. Choose between lard or sunflower oil, and start frying the lorne sausage, link sausages and black pudding. Aim for about 20 minutes in total for link sausage and ten minutes for the lorne sausage, black pudding and haggis slice. Then add the rashers of bacon, cooking for a few minutes on each side. Ensure all meat is fully cooked through. Once cooked, place in foil to keep it warm while you continue cooking the rest of the ingredients. Using the meat pan, fry the tomatoes and mushrooms for a delicious flavour, turning every few minutes until tender. Next, use the other pan to fry your eggs and cook according to personal taste. Fry the tattie scones until golden on both sides. Then pop on your toast. And there you have it! A delicious traditional Scottish breakfast to set you up for a day of walking, hiking, or cycling in the Scottish Highlands.
