The definitive Full English breakfast?
What should it feature. What is a big fat no? Toast AND fried bread? Where should it be bought? And is an ‘all day breakfast’ blasphemy?
I say, sausage, bacon, 2 types of egg (fried and scrambled), black pudding, toast and grilled tomatoes.
No filthy fungus and beans have no place at breakfast…

When we were kids, my little brother used to cycle 9 miles every Saturday morning to our Nan’s house to get his breakfast..
It consisted of
2 lamb chops
1 pork chop
2 fried eggs
fried beans ( 😯 )
not too shabby for a 12 year old.. he’s a fat knacker now some 30 years laterPosted 4 years agochewkwMember
Bacon smoked x 3 slices
Fried Egg large x 2
Baked beans x 1 can
Thick toast with butter x 2
Tomato ketchup (Del Monte … plenty of it)
Tea (with sweet condense milk South East Asian style) x 1
Coffee (with sugar no milk – Amaricano) x 1
I am going to add to my previous list to include … petit poisPosted 4 years agoedhornbySubscriber
tomato ketchup is wrong and hash browns are a cop out – and fried bread is unnecessary, just brown toast thanks
but I like mushrooms, grilled tomato is preferred to beans and gotta be coffee, haggis is the best

Stop what you are doing. Read this. When a breakfast is this well written, it becomes the winner and is a truly splendid thing:Posted 4 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber
Sausages – best quality pork, grilled.
Bacon – again, top quality pork, grilled and crispy.
Toast (certainly not fried bread, that’s just wrong).
A cafetiere of fine coffee.
A glass of orange juice, freshly squeezed.
Ways to ruin a cooked breakfast are to use cheapo nasty meat or instant coffee. Either of these sins should be punishable by death.Posted 4 years agochivesMember
Having cooked sausages, bacon, black pudding, toast, eggs, mushrooms, fried bread and tomatoes for some friends who’d stayed overnight, I put a small pan on the hob for scallops. They spat slightly, and the whole pan caught fire. I ran out of the (open) back door carrying said blazing pan – and in doing so caught my big toe on the edge of the open door, trying in effect to kick it up the garden – ouch). Ian, one of the aforementioned house guests, commented that he’d never before been served breakfast with ‘scenes of mild peril’ !
Definitely no hash browns. But scallops with bacon go so well. Sadly on that occasion I chucked them up the garden along with the blazing pan.Posted 4 years agotomasoSubscriber

Partial to the Full Welsh we used to get down at Swansea Market when I was a student there. Bacon, pork and leek sausage, eggs, fried potatoes, laver bread (ie seaweed) and some fried cockles (seriously). Awesome after a big night out.
For fried bread, my dad’s technique was to grill the bacon, wiipe the bread in the resulting fat in the botton of the grill pan and then grill it. Thereby negating any possible health benefits of grilling the bacon in the first place. Darn tasty though.Posted 4 years ago
