Steak & Poached Eggs

Sunday, October 8th, 2006

Steak & Poached Eggs Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. The morning after our wedding, the kind folks at Belle & Herbs opened up early so that we could have a morning-after breakfast. My first breakfast as a married woman was steak and poached eggs — two pieces of thin steak, 3 poached eggs, a bunch of […]

Breakfast Panini

Wednesday, September 13th, 2006

Breakfast Panini Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. The Breakfast Panini consists of a lightly toased ciabatta, filled with sausage, bacon, mushroom and cheese. Maybe I should put that in order of quantity: cheese, bacon, sausage, mushroom. I think that there was probably a little too much cheese, as this was quite an over-powering taste, however I […]

Pain Perdu

Thursday, June 29th, 2006

Pain Perdu Closeup Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. Pain perdu (or “posh eggy bread” as the menu explains) is another new addition to the breakfast menu. This is essentially just French toast made with brioche instead of normal doorstop bread. We ordered some just to try it along with breakfast one morning. As expected, it was […]

Full-On English

Wednesday, June 7th, 2006

Full-On English Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. The Full-On English is another augmentation of the main breakfast options on the new menu. It features 2 bacon, 2 eggs, 2 sausage (for some reason I seemed to get 4 though…), beans, peeled plum tomatoes, mushrooms, 2 hash browns, black pudding, white pudding, breakfast sauce, potato scones and […]

Steak and Eggs

Friday, May 5th, 2006

Steak and Eggs Breakfast Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. There are a few new breakfasts on the updated menu, all of which seem to run on the premise that the pre-existing Belle & Herbs breakfasts just weren’t big enough and more ginormous options were needed! This breakfast certainly fits the bill. My particular plate of food […]

Farmer’s Breakfast

Saturday, March 25th, 2006

Farmers Breakfast Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. The Farmer’s Breakfast is a huge 4 egg omelette, filled with sausage, bacon, fried potato & onion and plenty of cheese. It’s served with some plum tomatoes and a great slab of fried bread. The first thing to note is that this was an IMMENSE breakfast. Seriously huge. I […]

Muesli & Fruit

Sunday, February 26th, 2006

Muesli & Fruit Originally uploaded by ellythompson. Just for a change (and because I’ve already eaten far too much at Belle and Herbs this weekend) I decided to go for the ‘light’ option at breakfast today, which is the Muesli & Fruit. Mine came with green apple, kiwi fruit, apricots, sliced banana and blueberries, but […]

Scottish Breakfast

Tuesday, February 7th, 2006

Scottish Breakfast Originally uploaded by ellythompson. While deciding what breakfast to have this morning, I came to the sudden realisation that I hadn’t had the Scottish Breakfast yet. So that’s what I ordered. 2 Eggs, 2 Rashers of Bacon, A Flat Lorne Sausage, Pototo Cakes, Potato Scones, Black Pudding (not shown in the photo), White […]

Salmon Benedict

Tuesday, December 20th, 2005

Salmon Benedict Originally uploaded by ellythompson. The Salmon Benedict is part of the extensive ‘variations on the theme of egg on toast’ range on the Belle & Herbs Menu. And because the Poached Eggs are wonderful and I prefer Smoked Salmon to Bacon, I decided to go for this combination. Basically it consists of Poached […]

Breakfast Club

Saturday, December 10th, 2005

Breakfast Club Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. The Breakfast Club is big – really big – you just won’t believe how vastly, hugely appetite-quenchingly big it is. No, really. The Breakfast Club consists of Bacon, Eggs, Sausages, Beans, Tomato Sauce between 3 pieces of toast and – if that wasn’t enought – a portion of chips. […]

American Breakfast with Poached Eggs

Wednesday, December 7th, 2005

Another American Breakfast Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. This breakfast has become a real favourite of ours. It’s on the Belle & Herbs morning menu, but since this is served until 3pm, it’s often a good lunchtime option as well! There is an choice with all the breakfasts to have poached instead of fried eggs. I […]

The Big English!

Saturday, November 5th, 2005

The Big English Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. We went to Belle & Herbs this morning as we often do at the weekend and I realised that amazingly we hadn’t had any of the “standard” breakfast options! We’d been too busy exploring the different variations to try the basics. So I settled on having a “Big […]

Ham ‘n Eggs

Sunday, October 30th, 2005

Ham ‘n Eggs Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. Although we’ve tried almost every item on the main breakfast menu, there are still a few items down the bottom of the first page that we haven’t managed to have. This was one of them and to be perfectly honest I wasn’t quite sure it was really a […]

Cinnamon French Toast

Sunday, October 23rd, 2005

Cinnamon French Toast Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. Belle and Herbs have the best breakfast menu EVER. If you needed any further proof, then this Cinnamon French Toast is it. Massive slices of doorstop white, briefly soaked in sweetened egg mix, then fried in butter. It was absolutely gorgeous — not mushy (as French toast often […]

American Breakfast

Sunday, October 23rd, 2005

American Breakfast Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. The American Breakfast is my FAVORITE thing off the Belle & Herbs Menu. It’s one of those dishes where the people at the table next to you give you “You can’t possibly eat all that!” faces when it’s served to you. It consists of 2 eggs, 2 rashers of […]

Ulster Fry

Wednesday, October 5th, 2005

Ulster Fry Picture uploaded by ellythompson. The Ulster Fry (part of the FANTASTIC breakfast menu) consists of Bacon, Eggs (usually fried, but you can ask for scrambled (like I did) or poached) sausages, black pudding, white pudding, soda farl and boxdy potato cakes. Yum!

Apple & Cheese Toast

Wednesday, October 5th, 2005

Mmmm, Smelty! Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. Tangy apple sauteed in butter & cinnamon, spread over two pieces of thick toast and covered in molten mature cheddar might seem a bit of a strange combination, but it really works. The apple was very evidently fresh, having just been sliced and briefly sauteed. This made it tangy […]

California Benedict … and Toast!

Saturday, October 1st, 2005

California Benedict … and Toast! Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. The California Benedict consists of a toasted English muffin, crispy bacon and poached eggs, covered with guacamole. I assume it must be a Belle & Herbs invention, since I’ve never seen it anywhere before and a quick Google turns up nothing of the sort. Although the […]

Best Eggs Benedict EVAR

Saturday, September 24th, 2005

Best Eggs Benedict EVAR Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. Since I had enjoyed the Eggs Benedict so much when we first discovered Belle & Herbs whilst househunting, I chose to have it again. For those of you who missed the first installment, the Eggs Benedict consists of a toasted English muffin, 4 rashers of bacon topped […]

Ulster Breakfast

Saturday, September 17th, 2005

Ulster Breakfast Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. The Ulster Breakfast comprises 2 sausages, two slices of bacon, 2 fried eggs, 2 fried black pudding, 2 white pudding, boxdy potato cakes and soda farl fried in butter. This breakfast really is a heart attack on a plate, but the nice thing is that it really doesn’t seem […]
