Spanish breakfast.

There aren’t a lot of Spanish people who have breakfast before work. A Spanish breakfast is a small meal which is composed of a cup of coffee with toast and jam. Jam is almost exclusively peach. There are also pastries or churros. Churros are served with chocolate instead of coffee. Churros are made of oil, water, sugar, flour, cinnamon, eggs, vanilla tea, salt and butter. The Spanish also like eating ham and cheese sandwiches, toast drizzled with olive oil, chorizo and dark coffee.

Various kinds of pastries constitute the traditional Greek breakfast.Tyropita, Spanakopita, and bougatsa (particularly in Northern Greece) are eaten, usually accompanied with Greek coffee.

Finland’s breakfast

The traditionnal Finnish breakfast looks like the other european countries’ breakfasts.

For example, like the French, they eat cereals, fruit juice, a glass of milk and a slice of bread with jam. It also looks like the English breakfast with ham, some cheese and some porridge (it’s mashed oat), pancakes (its name is pannu kaku in Finland).

But they also have some typical products, among these there is rye bread, stawberries, waffles, raw vegetables (cucumbers, tomatoes) and yoghurt.

Finland’s breakfast is original and varied, it is inspired from the other European countries.
