Barbadian cuisine, also called Bajan cuisine, is a mixture of African, Portuguese, Indian, Irish, Creole and British influences. A typical meal consists of a main dish of meat or fish, normally marinated with a mixture of herbs and spices, hot side dishes, and one or more salads. Here is a list of delicious breakfast dishes that are originated from Barbados.

1. Ham Cutter

(Barbadian)

Ham cutter is a typical sandwich from Barbados. It's made with a Bajan salt bread, which is a freshly baked roll with a fluffy interior and crusty exterior. The roll is sliced down the middle, then filled with thick slices of leg ham or picnic ham, with optional lettuce and tomatoes.

2. Conkies

(Barbadian)

Conkies is a traditional dish of the West Indies that's especially popular in Barbados. It's made with a combination of cornmeal, spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), grated pumpkin, coconut, sweet potatoes, raisins, flour, sugar, butter, and sometimes eggs. The mixture is wrapped in banana leaves, then steamed until it solidifies. Conkies are served on their own as a dessert or as a side dish accompanying fish cakes or fried fish. They can also be served for breakfast with a cup of tea or coffee on the side.

3. Souse

(Barbadian)

Souse is a versatile dish that is typically prepared with pork, namely some of the less-favoured cuts such as head, feet, knuckles, or tail, while other versions also employ beef or chicken feet. The cuts are cooked until tender and are then doused in vinegar and lime-based combination of various spices, herbs, and sliced vegetables. Souse can be served with toast or cake.
