English Breakfast Bread

Updated: Aug 24, 2023

This delicious English breakfast bread is topped with eggs, bacon, tomato, Cumberland sausages, cheddar cheese and fresh oregano. It is super easy in preparation as it takes only 20 minutes of your precious time. To make it you can use a cast-iron pan, cake tin or a baking tray.

The bread is a baby of English muffin and American pancake, very soft but strong enough to hold various toppings. Perfect morning option for adults and children, super fun to make!

To create this recipe I was inspired by Korean egg bread (GYERAN BBANG). The Asian version is sweeter, thicker and prepared with vanilla essence. It is sold by street vendors all over Korea as a snack. My English Breakfast Bread is savoury, enjoy cooking!
