The Full English Breakfast

Postby wannabee enfant terrible » 04 Aug 2018, 17:33

What, in your opinion, constitutes the perfect Full English Breakfast?

For me it’s bacon (two or three rashers), one fried egg, a slice of fried bread and HP.

For a special treat add a sausage or two, additional fried bread and either baked beans or tinned tomatoes (easy on the juice, the plate/bread gets swamped).

Potatoes, in whatever form, have no place surely?

Vogons jog the fuck on.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

Black pudding, yes of course.

Additional question, its best eaten as ‘brunch’ no?

The vexed question remains re. saucing. The presence of eggs means the HP doesn’t overpower the bacon but I’m a recent convert to tomato sauce in a sausage sandwich, gives em a real fruity lift. So - are both sauces permitted?

I think so. Brown goes better with mushrooms and sausages, tomato goes better with bacon.

Yes, but then I feel that about everything. I only like a coffee when I wake up!

The Full English breakfast achieved perfection at Daily Bread in my local village circa 2016. Homemade beans, sourdough, sausages and smoked bacon. Nothing else has ever come close. I challenge you all to eat there and come up with a better breakfast.

Fucking sourdough?

Wanka.


You want basic, run of the mill generic toast.

Must have black pudding. And no bloody hash browns, they are not English, so have no place.

Absolutely. People ponce this shit up but it's a working class meal.

Bacon, sausage, egg, beans, shrooms, black pudding, toast.

That's it. Fried bread optional extra if you're feeling decadent.

Brown sauce and ketchup are fine.

Toast just never seems robust enough to cope with the onslaught, a fried slice underneath the egg is the right choice I reckon.

...and I’ve missed the obvious - a big mug of builders (one sugar).

Of course. Two poached eggs.

You can claim your working class tourist experience but I'm all in with the full on gentrification of the English breakfast .

I'm surprised Toby's made do with the humble mushroom and not gone for the full on truffle experience.
