It's weird how some things are deemed acceptable and some not. It's arbitrary, really.

Oh yeah. Usually with small-diced potatoes mixed in. Delightful with eggs.

Is that a Canadian thing, or just a fuck up of your own creation?

So pork products are acceptable and beef not?

Where the fuck did that come from? Keeping the Jew away from the breakfast table?

You can have beef sausage. I'm just not accepting the corned beef hash breakfast thing as acceptable in a functioning society.

Actually, I'd eat it. I just think it's more acceptable to let Steph know that she's indulging in practices that are abhorrent to all civilised people.

Actually it's more American. You will see it on some menus down there, and find it canned, in grocery stores. It's hard to find up here.

I love it & was excited to see it on the menu of the diner we ate at in Upstate NY last weekend.

Except it turned out to be canned. :x

Corned beef hash is the BALLS.
Well, it can be.
I can't imagine it has any roll to play in a full English, but . . .

Rice, miso soup, grilled fish, natto, pickled daikon and green tea.

It's actually quite nice but boring. Nonetheless, ask a Japanese person what they had for breakfast and nine out of ten times this will be their answer.

Bubble and squeak is the only potato-based full English breakfast item worthy of mention.

The caff owners who do still serve it just call it "bubble" round these parts.

Hell yeah it is.

Just wait until Britons discover scrapple - we'll have to re-do this poll.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D
