Polish breakfast recipes for semolina porridge, potato pancakes and scrambled eggs

A good breakfast can suit all budgets, tastes and skill levels – even if your lifestyle tempts you to skip it. In Poland it’s often a multi-course affair, budget-friendly, head-soothing and crowd-pleasing. What’s not to like?On weekends, a brunch-type meal tends to happen naturally, without planning, and at my family home this can turn into a long and leisurely affair. We might start off with savoury kanapki (open sandwiches with a variety of toppings) or sweet kasza – this means “grains”, but it’s essentially porridge – and move on to something warm, such as scrambled eggs, a typical Polish black pudding with buckwheat groats, or a sweet omelette.
