Farmhouse Breakfast Week 2011

Did you know that the 23rd to the 29th of January it's Farmhouse Breakfast week?  What better way to start the day and 'Shake Up Your Wake Up' with 'proper' bacon from Denhay Farm.
 Breakfast as we all know, is the most important meal of the day.  Now sadly, we don't all have time to cook a full English every morning.  Also it has to be said it's not the healthiest breakfast option.  However, once a week, say on a lazy Saturday, I say it has to be good for you.  Even a little fried bread wont hurt you!  I have to tell you I ate the lot of the breakfast you see in the picture above - but, I wasn't hungry all day so there was no snacking which has to be a good thing!
Using good quality sausages and bacon help the keep the fat content down.  
I used Denhay Farm dry cured 'spoilt pig' bacon and there was none of that horrid water you find when cooking some bacon.  Oh and I love the name 'spoilt pig'!  
Farmhouse Breakfast Week is an annual campaign run by the HGCA  which has been running since the year 2000. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast and demonstrate the variety on offer. 
Here are a few facts about breakfast:
* Breakfast eaters tend to be slimmer than breakfast skippers.
    * Eating breakfast can aid concentration and mental performance at work and at school.
    * It provides you with the nutrients and energy needed for an active lifestyle.
    * Research shows that breakfast eaters are less depressed and have lower levels of stress than breakfast skippers.

Thank you to Nickie and Denhay farm for sending me some lovely bacon to try.


  1. It's no wonder breakfast eaters are less depressed; I'd be walking on air after a breakfast like the one in your picture!! I also love "spoilt pig" thats adorable :') I'm currently feasting on some paltry toast for brekkie. My tummy growls with envy!

  2. The name spoilt pig is just priceless. Since it is Sunday I had a breakfast this morning very similar to yours.

  3. Lucky you to get given all that lovely bacon Jan! You can't beat delicious dry cured bacon and Denhay is the best. It is my favourite brand. Great looking breakfast! xxoo

  4. Happy New Year to you Jan - wishing you all the best for 2011! xx

  5. The breakfast looks lovely, but I think I need to cut back on my food intake this month!


Thanks for taking the time to comment - much appreciated.
