Here's What Prince Philip Would Eat
In A Day
By ERICH BARGANIER
Prince Philip always had a passion for adventure and enjoying the finer things in life. The same passion also extended into the kitchen, as royal footman Charles Oliver documented that the prince carried his electric glass-lidded frying pan wherever he went, so he could whip up his usual breakfast of bacon, eggs, sausages, and kidneys.
The prince credited his breakfast of scrambled eggs, haddock, and omelets for his longevity. For snacks, Philip whipped up dishes like scrambled eggs and smoked haddock, mushrooms sautéed in butter with bacon, Scotch woodcock with mushrooms, and omelets with bacon. He had even shot, plucked, cleaned and prepared a snipe once.
An ardent lover of grilling, Prince Philip used to cook up salmon, game, and venison outdoors when the royal family vacationed in Balmoral. One of his signature dishes, among many perfected recipes, featured whole mushrooms simmered in a cream sauce and topped with croutons.
