What is an Irish Breakfast?

What is an Irish Breakfast?

St. Patrick’s Day is this coming Saturday and we’re excited to celebrate this delicious (and lucky!) food holiday at The Original Pancake House in Denver.  In Ireland they say “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper” which means we should all start the day with a large cooked breakfast – now that is an idea we fully support!  

In Ireland, the tradition of a full Irish breakfast was started for farm workers to give them energy and sustenance for a full-day of outdoor labor.  The meal was typically created with farm fresh produce and homemade breakfast staples, all warmed together in a big frying pan with a generous square of Irish butter.  Today’s Irish breakfast usually consists of some or all of the following: bacon, sausages, baked beans, eggs, mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, and perhaps some cooked leftover potatoes made into a hash. There will also be toast, butter, marmalade, and lots of tea to drink.

Today, most Irish folk don’t have time for such an elaborate breakfast during the week.  However, this favorite breakfast meal is savored on lazy weekend mornings and is always served at Irish bed and breakfasts and inns.  

At The Original Pancake House in Denver, we serve our own version of an Irish breakfast, our Corned Beef Hash and Eggs.  Inspired by the flavors of Ireland, this dish includes our own homemade freshly ground corned beef brisket and onion with diced potatoes. It comes served with two basted eggs and three of our wonderful buttermilk pancakes.  If you are looking for a St. Patrick’s Day breakfast in Denver, stop on in and try it!

From all of us at The Original Pancake House, we wish you a Happy St. Patty’s Day!
