Starting the Day with a Scottish Breakfast
Shortly before we left for Scotland, a friend told me we would have the same breakfast at every B&B during our stay. I was surprised and really thought they'd be different as B&Bs in the states are very creative. She was right!!
At each of the four B&Bs where we spent the night we got "traditional Scottish breakfast". We couldn't believe it- it included a fried egg (fried in bacon fat), one or two strips of bacon (much meatier than ours), sausage (links or patties), toast, a grilled tomato half, a potato scone (similar to lefse and not what we consider a scone at all, mostly mashed potatoes, lightly fried)and baked beans.
We were well fed but somewhat disappointed, although we both liked the potato scone.
If I'm rambling, I'm still a little jet lagged!
