As one who comes from royalty, Queen Elizabeth certainly has a very specific food palette. Whether she’s enjoying a delectable collection of dark chocolate or a cup of Earl Grey tea, the monarch has a selection of favorite dishes she eats fairly regularly. However, Her Majesty has a particular meal that she’s eaten every day since her youth.
According to the royal’s former personal chef Darren McGrady, she loves eating her tried-and-true “jam penny” every day, which has been a staple in her diet for many years. The sandwich is simply made up of three ingredients: bread, jam and butter. And if you want to be really fancy, add a bit of strawberry jam to it, he explains. (And just so happens to be the Queen’s flavor of choice.)
