Boxing Day Brunch

boxing day brunch


  • 3 slices of fresh bread-sourdough bread the best
  • butter
  • 6 pickled onions
  • 1/2 cup of pickled cabbage
  • 4 slices of cooked ham
  • 1 large cup of earl grey tea

Ideally, the Boxing day’s breakfast in England includes a variety of  yummy and festive ingredients: cooked ham, (ham that tastes almost like our syglino of Mani or kavourmas of Rethymno, Crete) which you buy as a whole piece and slice it yourself, pickled onions,  pickled red cabbage, buttered slices of fresh bread and large cups of earl grey with milk. I see it in my husband’s face that not only it is a traditional breakfast but a unique combination of taste every Christmas!
