As we all know, breakfast is an important meal for you to start your day. What is the typical breakfast in your country? In Indonesia, our typical breakfast is nasi goreng or fried rice, nasi uduk, or chicken porridge.

A homemade fried rice is usually served with a sunny side-up egg. People can get nasi uduk or chicken porridge from street vendors. Basically, nasi uduk is made by cooking the rice in coconut milk. Add some ginger, lemongrass, grinded shallot, and a pinch of salt.

While the chicken porridge is made by cooking the rice until it is soft and thick (kind of mushy). It is served with shredded chicken and rice crackers. For flavor, you can add soy sauce and fish sauce into the porridge before eating. But, we are not going to discuss the Indonesian breakfast here. We are going to learn about the English breakfast.

Have a look at the picture below:

You must be wondering what is a black pudding? Black pudding is basically a blood sausage; it is a blend of onions, pork fat, oatmeal, flavourings – and blood (usually from a pig). Sounds gross, doesn’t it. Well, it doesn’t look that bad though.

What about hash browns? What are they?

Hash browns are made of boiled potatoes that have been cut up (shredded, diced, or riced), mixed with chopped onions and fat, and fried until brown.
