English Breakfast Bread

Updated: Feb 15

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!

Ingredients for the bread:

  • 100g self-rising flour

  • 1tsp baking powder

  • 1tsp sugar

  • 1/4tsp salt

  • 1/4tsp black pepper

  • 1 large egg

  • 50ml milk

  • 1tsp of butter for greasing the pan

Ingredients for toppings:

  • 4 cooked sausages (I used Cumberland chipolata cut in half)

  • 2 eggs

  • 4 thick slices of tomato

  • 2 slices of streaky unsmoked bacon sliced

  • a handful of cheddar cheese

  • more black pepper (I love black pepper)

  • fresh oregano for garnish

  • brown sauce

Tip: Place sliced bacon over the egg yolks to keep them more runny.


1. Preheat the oven to 200C (392F) and grease cast iron pan that you are going to use with butter.

2. Mix all dry bread ingredients together then whisk in milk and the eggs until a smooth batter is achieved.

3. Spread the batter in your greased pan then place your toppings (eggs first, sausages, tomato slices and then bacon, fill the gaps with grated cheddar cheese and sprinkle with black pepper.

4. If you using a cast iron pan, place it on the stove and heat up the bottom for a minute then place it in the oven for 13-14 minutes.

5. Once baked garnish with fresh oregano and drizzle of brown sauce, eat straight away (I had one piece cold and it was also very nice)
