Happy Monday! With America's birthday around the corner, we thought we would be a little cheeky and feature some great British eats on our Yummy Monday blog post today!

British food has gotten a bad rap over the years but there are some wonderful gems and great bites of food to feature at your wedding! We hope you enjoy the treats we gathered here for you!

These mini Steak and Ale Pics are classic British fare and we think great as a small but substantial bite of food!

Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding is a classic English dish found very commonly for "Sunday Roast". This mini version uses rare roast beef, mini Yorkshire pudds and a spicy horseradish sauce to give it a little punch. YUM!

This mini Fish & Chips paired with a tiny microbrew stole our heart on the cuteness factor!

Pimms is an English "liqueur" that is the base for a very refreshing "Pimm's Cup". According to Wikipedia,  it is one of the two staple drinks at the Wimbledon tennis tournament, the Chelsea Flower Show, the Henley Royal Regatta and the Glyndebourne Festival Opera (the other being Champagne.) A Pimm's also is a standard cocktail at Polo Matches and a popular summer drink.  We think this Pimm's Cart is adorable and very British!

Mini Sticky Toffee Puddings would be a delicious way to bring in a little British "flavour" to your wedding! It's a steamed pudding (or "pudd") that resembles a very moist cake with a delicious (and sticky!) toffee/caramel sauce. We love it when it's served with vanilla ice cream. Hmm... what about sticky toffee pudding ice cream??? (yum!)

When I was younger I thought the dish was called "Welsh Rabbit and included rabbit. (eek!) But then I realized it was Welsh RAREBIT which is basically a cheese sauce poured over pieces of bread and them broiled. I am still trying to make up for not eating Welsh Rarebit all those years. This version contains apple and Stilton cheese - a delicious English Bleu cheese.

When I was in England I wanted to buy boiled eggs to eat and couldn't find them in any grocery store already boiled. But I could find Scotch Eggs everywhere. Who knew that if you wrapped it in meat and deep fried it that it would be even more delicious? This mini version is made using quail eggs.

The Brits LOVE their sweets and I love all the varieties of sweets that they offer! This sweets table has a decidedly British theme from the color and the delicious looking wedding cake! We don't know if it is made of cake or scones but either way we'd be happy to take a slice!

And speaking of scones, this brilliant version of a scone with a Union Jack made of clotted cream and preserves is almost too pretty to eat! Almost....!
