I have been a bit MIA recently, so I apologize if you left any comments and I haven’t been able to get back to them yet. Just know I always appreciate you stopping by to read my posts and supporting me on my blogging journey. I recently took off to travel again, only this time I did it to get married so things have been bectic. Weddings aren’t easy to plan, but I can say it’s well worth all the effort put into it. 🙂
Travelling can mean long and gruesome days. You may battle hunger, fatigue, weather changes, etc., so it’s always a warm welcome to have a big and hearty breakfast before making the trek. I have a bad (or good, depending how you see it) habit of starting early in the morning and crashing late in the evening, just to maximize my time abroad. It’s not often that I have time to sit down and enjoy a nice, big breakfast, so when I was in Hungary, it was a nice change.
It was a cold and gloomy day, but this beautiful breakfast spread had an assortment of things. In Hungary, you can have a simple bread roll with coffee, but when it’s more elaborate, it can have cheese, cold cuts, eggs, veggies, yogurt, pastries, and bread with butter, jam, and/or honey to accompany the meal.
Normally I avoid deli meat like Superman avoids Kryptonite, but the salami in Hungary is supposed to be special. What is known as téliszalàmi – a winter salami, or simply the Hungarian salami, is made with pork, spices, and is smoked and hung to dry. I’m not a salami conoisseur, but it tasted good to me! It was salty with a bit of kick and although I’m not a huge fan of all the fat chunks in it, I guess that’s what makes it flavourful. Texturally, it was a bit hard, but it went well with the bread.
Hungary is also known for a cheese spread – it’s lightly seasoned and is very light and fluffy in comparison to cheese spreads in North America.
To wash down this lovely breakfast (don’t worry, I shared this with a travel companion), you can have coffee, tea or hot chocolate, but I got a nice big cup of tea and hot cocoa. All I can say is WOW!
