The Dubliner’s Irish Breakfast served all day
“Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper”, an old adage says, meaning that it is wise to start the day with a large cooked breakfast. Such a motto could very much be applied to the traditional full Irish Breakfast. It is a meal that was traditionally concocted to prepare one for a full day’s heavy duty work on the farm on a cold winter morning and was comprised of the best local and homemade farm produce all cooked in butter in a frying pan.
While today it is not possible to be eaten on most work mornings, the traditional full Irish serves as a staple treat for most households to indulge in on a lazy Sunday morning whilst reading the Sunday papers. And it is not just confined to mornings, it is a meal that can be eaten at any hour of the day depending on your liking.
