Breakfasts are a medium of expression and enthusiasm. Don’t think so? Well, it serves a lot of purposes. First, it fills you up and prepares you for the day with a dose of motivation. Second, it quickly enhances your mood. Third, the way it is prepared dictates how productive the rest of your day will be. Especially when you get up in the morning every day and prepare your meal, it motivates you to keep doing better. It is for these many reasons that we found that breakfast should be dazzling and delectable and surely not boring. When you are taking a trip across Europe, you will find amazing breakfast and snack options.
4 sweet breakfast ideas taken from European cooking styles:
1. French Toast
A classic bread breakfast is loved equally across the world. First, take two eggs in a bowl. Pour in whole milk, vanilla extracts, a dash of cinnamon powder, and some sugar. Whisk the mixture thoroughly so that there are no lumps. Now choose thick-cut milk-based slices of bread and dunk them one by one. Make sure the bread is only covered and not soaking wet in the egg mixture and then slowly grill in butter in a pan on low-medium heat until some brown char begins to show up on both sides. Enjoy with berries or whipped cream and icing!
Danish pastries are folded variously with sweet surprises inside, like apricot, berries, and chocolate, and baked till golden brown. This dish is a delightful morning breakfast option and a great snacking option when friends and family are around. It is served with spreads of complimenting condiments like honey, maple syrup, icing, chocolate sauce, sprinkles, etc. Not only is this great for festivals but the kids love it wholeheartedly too!
This dutch delicacy is famously prepared at home during Christmas and other such occasions when a lot of sharing is anticipated. The bread is born out of the usual mixture of flour, eggs, yeast, sugar, and butter but there is a whole of things that will be added for it to brim with flavors. Raisins, almond flakes, hazelnuts, and cocoa chips are mixed generously with the dough and then the grainy smooth almond paste is secretly placed on one side. The dough is done in a rectangular baking pan till fluffy. Although it is a lot of work, you can make it once in large quantity and have a few slices every day till more ideas cross your mind!
Sirnica is a crusty and very flaky pastry coming from eastern Europe. It is made like a pie filled with sweet stuff or savory, whichever variety you like the most. The dough needs to be worked up a lot with eggs and butter to achieve such flakiness (find one from the market) but it is a gorgeous breakfast and deserves all your love. Traditionally, it has cheese curds, mozzarella cheese, cottage cheese, and eggs seasoned with a hint of salt (you replace this with light brown sugar). Now the dough sheets are curled up tightly like rolls in the cake baking pan and baked till the thin crispiness is visible. There is no way you will not love this beauty!
These breakfast inspirations from European are filled with love and there is no need to be perfect, they melt in your heart anyways. These dishes have a lot to offer, great heartening taste, a sweet scent, and a variety of textures. You are bound to love every inch of it. Enjoy!
