    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?

    Discuss…

    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…

    Let’s have this out!

    Ok. Sausages – Cauldron ones are best. Poached or boiled egg, grilled tomato (with the green end bit cut out before cooking) beans, hash brown, brown sauce. Bit of toast with marmalade. Strong black coffee.

    Normally just eat 5 boiled eggs though ๐Ÿ™

    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 bacon
    2 sausage
    2 lamb chops
    1 pork chop
    2 fried eggs
    fried potatoes
    fried mushrooms
    fried tomatoes
    fried beans ( ๐Ÿ˜ฏ )
    toast
    coffee

    not too shabby for a 12 year old.. he’s a fat knacker now some 30 years later

    Hash browns are an abomination in a traditional English Breakfast.

    Bacon
    Sausage
    Fried or poached egg
    Fried slice or toast
    Beans
    Tomato
    Mushrooms
    Black Pudding

    Anyone that puts a grilled tomato on a fry-up wants a kick in the marbles….
    Proper tinned tomatoes – it’s what the bread and butter is for mopping up!

    I don’t think that I could even eat all the sausages in rattraps picture!

    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

    mmmmm think me and smallperson are going to a cafe tomorrow!!

    The best full English, is the one cooked unrequested by someone else!

    For the record, if she ever read STW, quality sausages, bacon, poached egg, beans, fried potatoes, mushrooms

    Bothy breakfast:
    Those square Warburtons wrap things or a toasted pitta bread stuffed with bacon, chipolatas, fried egg, mushrooms, beans and black pudding. Plenty of seasoning too. Pint of tea.
    Most excellent indeed.

    Stop what you are doing. Read this. When a breakfast is this well written, it becomes the winner and is a truly splendid thing:

    Sausages – best quality pork, grilled.
    Bacon – again, top quality pork, grilled and crispy.
    Scrambled eggs
    Mushrooms
    Baked beans
    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.

    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.

    In Amsterdam after a heavy session we ended up in some Irish pub for breakie and it was imense consisting of sausage bacon black pudding fried & scambled egg beans tomato mushrooms fried potato toast & fried slice mmmmmmmmmm washed down with
    black coffee and Amstel.

    I quite like it smaller or simpler these days – bacon & egg or sausage egg & beans.

    Get down wetherspoons and have the big breakfast a large latte with extra toast, free news viewing and free wifi aaaand no washing up after hey presto!!

    Seeing theres plenty of experts here – whats the best way to make fried bread?

    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.
