Full English Breakfast
(1 serving) Printable Version
Grill the sausages, bacon and halved tomato to suit your taste. In England, there are many schools of thought on what is the best way for bacon to be cooked, but I prefer it to be lightly grilled.
Add a little oil into a frying pan and fry off the black pudding and mushrooms together. They are ready when the mushrooms turn a golden brown. Move these into a heat proof dish and place in the bottom of your oven to keep warm.
Start to gently simmer the pan of baked beans - Don't over cook them as they will go hard.
Add more oil into the pan (around 2 table spoons) and place a round of bread in and fry until golden brown - repeat for the second slice and then keep warm.
Next, fry 2 eggs to suit your taste. In England, we only fry one side and love them to be runny.
Finally, serve everything on the plate together, make a nice cup of English Breakfast Tea (yes, its a tea bag, and yes we add milk), shake a dash of salt over your place, and a squirt of brown sauce.
Special Note From Recipe Submitter:
I was hungry this morning and found this website. I thought I'd share what is know throughout England as THE breakfast of choice. Traditionally the breakfast of lorry drivers (truckers) and tradesmen / builders but it is now served in most hotels, restaurants, cafes and even PUBS! The ingredients are optional, but these are my preferences.

Amazing Stuff. Brown sauce can be the only sauce, after all this recipe is traditionally English.

Hash browns and baked beans are for an Americanized version. Where are the kidneys?

Use the grill juices to fry the bread. It has all the flavor.

I really miss full English breakfast. Enjoyed it every day each time I was fortunate enough to visit Great Britain. The best was at a bread and breakfast I stayed at near Birmingham. This recipe sounds delicious!

Ouch. That's way too much food for me for breakfast. I prefer something lighter like oats or toast. Maybe in my younger days, I could get away with it. Looks tasty though.

OMD (oh my days) this is the best breakfast you can ever have. Just reading the recipe makes my mouth water and it's even better when it gets on to your taste buds. It just explodes and when you're finished, you'll keep on asking for more. God bless English breakfast :')

Full English can be so many things to so many people but either way it is a great start to the day. Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper!

This is the English mans best friend.

I agree... this is the only way to start the day. Fried bread is a necessity.

I suggest you pan fry bacon. Black pudding cut to 1.5cm is a little small, use sea salt and black pepper. H.P. sauce is not the only one - try others.

Black pudding is the greatest. Skip the foreign hash browns. Add fried bread.

What's with the 'hash browns'? Isn't that something very American?
Comment submitted: 9/26/2010 (#11291)
Give me two fried eggs, two sausages, two rashers, hash browns, fried bread and a scoop of beans. I'll skip the puddings. Serve it to me now please.

If I was ever on death row, this would be my last meal served with Daddy's brown sauce and Warburtons danish bread.

No better breakfast in the world. A decent fry up should also include tea.

It was so nice. That was the first time I tried an English Breakfast... and it will not be the last!!
