Breakfast, the most important meal of the day and certainly one of the most important factors for hotels and B&Bs, with many priding it as one of their main selling points. So, how do you stand out in a world of beans on toast and omelettes?
In this blog posts, we’ll be running through our favourite gourmet breakfast recipes – along with a few more exotic ideas to get your guests excited.

Every hotel offers up a full English, so it’s important for yours to stand out – here’s our recipe selection for the ‘ultimate’ full English breakfast.
Bacon – Good bacon is the heart of any English breakfast. Ensure you use high quality bacon and asks your guests how they’d like it cooked.
Sausages – Again, quality is key here. Offering a range of different sausages (including veggie ones!) helps you cater for all your guests.
Eggs – Always use free range! Make sure you give guests the option of poached, scrambled or fried. Extra points for offering eggy bread.
Fried Potatoes – Fried or sautéed potatoes are delicious and so underused. Simply cut potatoes into rough chunks, fry in olive oil until golden brown, season and serve.
Black Pudding – Not for everyone, be sure to have black pudding as an ‘optional extra’, this will keep guests happy and reduce food waste.
Beans – Don’t slop them on the plate, serve in a separate ramekin to avoid a flood of bean juice.
Toast – Use a good quality loaf, our Sherston Thick Sliced bread from Hobbs House makes the best toast in the world!
Mushrooms – Button mushrooms are ideal for a full English, you can cook these alongside your fried potatoes.
Whilst the cooked option at hotels and B&Bs is generally fantastic, the cold or ‘continental’ buffet is usually a selection of sad looking cereal and bruised fruit. Take your breakfast buffet to the next level with these quick and easy additions:
