What do the Spanish Eat for Breakfast?


Spanish Breakfast - Coffee, Roll, Cheese and Jam

The Spanish start eating in the morning and don't seem to stop until they turn in for the evening... and even with the increased serving sizes in the USA, most Americans are surprised at the large size of Spanish meals. What do the Spanish eat for breakfast?

Well, breakfast in Spain is small, but tasty. Cafe con leche (espresso coffee with steamed milk), a roll and some cheese and/or jam. Those who do not drink coffee may have a cup of thick, rich Spanish hot chocolate and churros (a light, crisp sort of doughnut) or torrijas. That keeps Spaniards going until they have lunch at 1:30!
