I can see this turning into a quantity v quality battle. I'm debating which to go for this weekend, probably quantity biggrin

It's an interesting point about what goes into a full English. Eggs, sausage and bacon are a given, but after that do you have to have beans or a tomato? Even more suspect is any sort of potato ???? I should have done a university study in it, at least I would have been a well fed student then.

Potatoes have no place on an English beakfast plate.
I concur. An American habit.
Agreed. Damn good though, I must say. I believe beans have no business whatsoever on the breakfast plate. My fry up (ideally) makes no apologies for not being truly british, but goes a little like this:

Bacon, 4 rashers, with rind, smoked, fried until fat browns.
Sausages, 3 x cumberland, browned.
Mushrooms, 2 x big ones, flash fried.
Tomato, 1, fried with the shrooms.
Eggs, 2 x fried in the gunk from bacon, sausages etc. Runny yolk, a bit of 'residual stuff' on the white.
Forgive me now, but, American 'country-style' hash browns. These are the ones comprised of grated potato in a heap.
Brown sauce.
Toast on the side. Buttered.
I'm pretty much with you except the bacon should be smoked middle, not keen on fried toms and find it barely credible you forego black pudding for some grated spud having agreed such tubers have no place on a full English! biggrin
I agreed no such thing! Or, if I did, I'd like to re-phrase my menu title to Pap-oo-ess-ey breakfast. See what I did there? Genuis.
Tea or coffee?
Is a valid and important question.

Tea, white, one, please.
Yes, tea. Coffee doesn't cut through the grease well enough for me.

Do you do delivery? I like the FM3 Tuscan racer shot in the background as well!
It's not FM3, there was Tuscan racing on the tv. Keep up at the back!
Quarry at Castle Combe tongue out


Some very dodgy looking 'breakfasts' in this thread. WTF is with the lettuce and side of crisps...for breakfast?? Wrong!

I had some fantastic bacon the other day (what's with all the water infused crap). It was from one of Rick Steins 'Food Heros' and reminded me of the stuff my Grandma used to cook thirty odd years ago. Yum!
Any other bacon recommendations?

I will recommend bacon. Lidl, the single packs. Outstanding bacon.

And to the poster who cuts off their best bit (bacon fat) then pop into Lidl and buy their bacon medallions. No fat, no water, no waste, very cheap.

That photo's actually quite misleading - they're normal thin sausages, in a pan that's only about 15-20cm diameter - it's just the angle they were taken at that made them look so big.

But very tasty all the same.

My version of a coronary on a plate. Nothing like a belly full of grease to set you up for the rigours of the day.

And here's one I prepared earlier

not a bad effort but the eggs are clearly over cooked ,needs beans to
Bingo. A fry-up without beans is just wrong.
I can assure you the eggs were not overcooked. And they were less than 24 hours from the chicken bum supplied a very fine PHer's wife.

Oh and only builders have beans in their cooked breakfast. No self respecting Englishman would ever consider beans for breakfast.
yes
Beans with breakfast? nono
Very poor form.
Toms or 'shrooms. Not both thumbup

A mound of rocket goes a treat on a bacon baguette. It was a lunchtime feed too. In my defence, it did contain about 6 rashers of bacon and plenty of sauce.
Sorry that's no defence and anyway you're in the wrong place if that's your lunch, this is about breakfast rolleyes

I think it's a "Lorne slice" or something similar - basically sausage "meat", sans skin, in a square.

I appear to know rather too much about pork related and other breakfast items...

OK, clockwise from twelve o'clock:
  • Lorne slices (2 off)
  • Tomatoes (2 off, halved)
  • Potato cakes (half off, halved, ie two quarters)
  • Eggs (fried, 2 off)
  • Sausages (2 off, probably pork)
  • Bacon (2 off, underdone fat)
The blue, yellow and white circular thing under that lot is what is usually called a "plate". The prongy thing to the left of the "plate" is a "fork". The cutty thing to the right of the "plate" is a "knife". Under the "plate" is a "table" or "counter".

HTH!
