traditional breakfasts in Poland

bpss     Dec 11, 2006, 06:08pm  #1

You have spoken about dinner, do you have a traditional breakfast in Poland for Xmas? Here in England we mostly have a fried breakfast or the healthy lot have friut and cerial. I can't see the point of eating that healthy when you think what you eat and drink over the festive season.......
I should have added in stead of replying......im still learning..:)

I have read plenty of info on main meals (xmas dinners), is there a traditional breakfast meal any time of the year? Especially at xmas.
Normally at xmas in the uk we tend to go for a fried meal with a late dinner. The healthy ones tend to eat cerial and fruit, but i beleive after what you eat over the xmas period whats the point of being healthy.:)

Good Polish breakfast is usually chleb (bread), an assortment of szinki (cold meats), eggs are popular too. My family usually has cottage cheese/farm cheese as well.

A really big brekkie may include some cold smoked fish, a cold salad and some other nice things including the best bread money can buy and freshly churned, lightly salted butter.

Cereal

What kind of stuff do Polish people eat for Breakfast? Are cereal bars popular? Cereal and cereal bars are popular here in Ireland. Do Polish people have Snack bars between meals, or do they use an alternative snack?? Unusual question I know! I'm doing some research on snack bars and snacking in general among Polish people.

s,

I work in a small factory. I've never seen anyone eat a snack-bar at break time.

Most of the guys eat cheese or ham rolls and drink tea. Health food would be an apple or yoghurt.

In my many traveles in Poland, Breakfast has become a favorite especially at friends homes. Fresh bread, sliced tomatoes with minced onions and fresh ground pepper/salt, sliced cucumbers, butter or cheese (white farmer chees or aged cheese), bulki, dzem, sometimes meat (kielbasa, synka or bacon...as my friend says its also good cooked but doesn't have to be) or canned fish, occassionaly milk soup. In recent years yogurt and kiefer have been more available. Always a pot of tea and in better times with lemon. If they had a cow some warm milk was also offered. And of course the table was set to look like a photo shoot for a gourmet magazine if I was a guest, not just family.

My friends told me they've seen a couple, but it has to be rather a bigger employer .. besides, Poles still prefer to make their own lunch .. cheaper and perhaps healthier too

Is it a wine or kompot (compote) in the glass? Bread (is it?) on the right is similar to Polish bread I sometimes buy in European shop in the US.

I won`t lie to you. There is simple multifruit juice in the glass. I sometimes pour juice into liquor glasses. My little perversion.
As for bread, it is my evryday staple food: wholemeal rye bread with sunflower seeds.

I eat white bread only with fish eggs.

Red caviar+white bread+butter... :) I know. In the US it seems they don't know red caviar's edible.
I prefer black (sturgeon) caviar but it became to be extremely expensive so that I haven't eaten it for the last five years.

Yeah, that's what I buy here. If I'm not mistaken it sounds in Polish pretty much the same as in Russian... "chleb" or smth... :)

You are lucky compared to me. The only fish eggs I have tried are salmon and various Atlantic substitutes. :):):)

Yes, chleb. Polish and Russian have the same Slavic roots, after all.
