Everything but only one version of egg (scrambled, fried, poached), both forms of tomato (fresh, grilled with a little cheese on top, tinned, heated and served on toast) but no tomato sauce, and as an other, black pudding. and toast and fried bread only. That was then. Now, as a born-again vegetarian, Quorn sausages instead of pork, no bacon or black pudding. Still plenty to be getting on with...

With brown sauce natch.


This for me too. Except fried bread.

I'm not interested in the beans, myself. And ketchup has no place at breakfast ever under any circumstance.

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?


Not arsed about the HP - that stuff just flattens the flavour of everything else. But otherwise - yep, spot on. And yeah, around midday. With huge MUG O TEA

No beans, thanks, and no tomatoes of any form. This is a fry-up, not a fucking salad. Has to have black pudding, fried bread, fried egg, more sausage than bacon, and I don't mind a hash-brown or two, if you can stretch to it.

No sauce - I only like sauces which are prepared as an essential part of the meal, cold sauce on hot food doesn't work for me.

Egg, baked beans, and mushrooms are the necessities for me, then a prefer maybe a baguette and some kind of fake meat (facon, soysage, sham, etc.)

Cheese is good for me too though I know that's not generally a breakfast thing.

I have to vegetise it (easy enough to do from my limited experience), but I did enjoy the Full English several times when I was over last (9 years ago already!)

Not to me it doesn't. Thin, gristly bit of pig usually fried of grilled to hell and back. And don't get me started on bacon rind.

Anyway, fuck your English breakfast. Black pudding, haggis, link sausage, lorne sausage, beans, mushrooms, HP sauce and a pint mug of tea - no milk, no sugar.

It is scrambled eggs ( not too creamy ), LOTS of mushrooms, tinned or grilled tomatoes, baked beans, toast (white), ketchup and OH MY GOD HASH BROWNS. Possibly a veg sausage, if you're really pushing the boat out. Mug of tea - milky, medium strength.

I don't really get the hash brown thing, it's another of these modern fad things I disapprove of. Potatoes are too stodgy for breakfast and surely hash is to be smoked?

I don't understand this statement. I guarantee I can eat hash browns any time; day or night.

You're wrong about the ketchup but I'll see you in the caff around 10.00.

Well, that’s silly British bacon. Anyone would prefer any sausage, if that’s a necessary decision.
