We still haven’t made it to a proper grocery store, but I’m very happy with this tasty breakfast! Gas station croissant with slices of Comte cheese, apple and English breakfast tea I stashed in my bag at a hotel 🙂 Can you believe the view from my kitchen window?!?
Our wonderful bed and breakfast hosts prepared an awesome breakfast for us! There was a basket of various breads, butter, ham, cheese, hard-boiled eggs, tea, coffee, and fresh squeezed orange juice. Charity and I both opted for the croissants which we made into sandwiches using liberal amounts of butter, ham, and cheese. It was perfectly flaky and the ham, cheese, and butter were all high quality. The hard-boiled eggs were perfectly cooked and tasted fresh from the farm. The juice was excellent, and the tea and coffee were great as well. A good way to start the day in Bruuge.
Our friend Nick suggested that we try a traditional English cream tea before leaving England. It made for a great afternoon snack. The tea was nice and warm. The scones were pleasantly crisp on the outside and tender and crumbly on the inside with plump, juicy raisins. The clotted cream was something we’ve never had before. It was like butter mixed with whipped cream, and slightly sweet. The jam tasted of fresh English strawberries.
