The full English breakfast is traditionally served at breakfast time, but it is also popular at other times, usually replacing lunch. Rarely is it now served every day of the week, reserved instead for the weekend or on vacation in hotels and Bed and Breakfasts, where no stay would be complete without one.
Bacon and eggs, a fry, a fry up, The Great British breakfast, a full English breakfast, a full Irish breakfast, a full Scottish breakfast, a full Welsh breakfast or an Ulster fry - all names describing one of the favourite dishes of the United Kingdom. Every home in every country of the UK has its own version; this how-to will teach you how to prepare the typical full English breakfast.
The full English breakfast is a traditional meal which consists of bacon, eggs, sausages, mushrooms, and baked beans. Make this to settle your stomach the morning after; if you're trying to impress some English guests; or if you're just craving something other than oatmeal and toast. Knowing how to prepare a full English breakfast can be very as useful as well as appetising.
- 2 sausages
- 100 grams of mushrooms
- 2 rashers of bacon
- 2 eggs
- 150 grams of baked beans
- Vegetable oil
- Ketchup or brown sauce (optional)
- Place the sausages a pan with some preheated vegetable oil. Turn the sausages regularly and cook for about 10-12 minutes.
- Clean the mushrooms, but do not wash them. Then slice the mushrooms and add them to a separate pan with some preheated vegetable oil. Toss and stir the mushrooms over gentle heat for 5 minutes, then put them on a warm plate.
- In the same pan that the sausages have been cooking in, place the rashers of bacon in to cook. Turn them every minute or so.
- Put the baked beans into a saucepan on the stove and stir over gentle heat.
- Whilst you keep turning the bacon and sausages and stirring the beans, crack two eggs into a separate pan. Pour some oil on the eggs. The eggs are done when the yolks have gone opaque.
