Continental bread is just different types of Italian breads, nice and crusty on the outside and usually soft and fluffy on the inside...but can also have a spongier texture...oh and usually white bread...but you can get ryes and wholemeals

We call that Artisan Bread.

Oh yes, I know of Artisan bread, but have never heard it called that here...so they certainly like us to have different names in different countries dont they

We have what we call a Continental breakfast, with European breads and rolls with butter, soft cheeses and jams. I suppose Continental bread/toast has the same word origin.

Experimenting with baked eggs and tomatoes this morning. Sauce has canned tomatoes, red bell peppers, onion, garlic and some basic spices. I am ready for tomato season so I can make this with fresh tomatoes.

This morning I finished off the last of the "white chili" from the freezer. I had done some substituting -- instead of white beans I had used red kidney beans. The meat was ground turkey, and for the chili kick, a small can of green chilis. The result was olive-drab colored with those brown beans and honestly looked like something you wouldn't feed a cat. But, boy, was it ever good!

Yes, we too have the Continental breakfast, I would say the word came from that
