The UK really knows how to do breakfast right. Even when I stayed in a £10 per night hostel, the complimentary breakfast spread was insane. There was bread, all sorts of cold cuts, gherkins, jams & jellies, porridge, cold cereal, cheese, and pastries. I feel like breakfast in England was always so hearty that I wasn't hungry until dinner time.
Anyway, I was introduced to the full English breakfast in 2008 during my first trip to London. We were out in town exploring and popped into a little pub-ish eatery and I chowed down on a massive plate of what was basically just a pile of protein and toast. It was so satisfying.
I hadn't eaten a full English since 2010 (which was my last visit to the UK; I'm pretty sure I also had a full Irish on that trip too; yum). So, when I got a sausage maker and made it my business to make some mini bangers, I decided I also had to do a proper full English breakfast. I even went out of my way and made "Heinz" baked beans. If I wanted to go crazy, I might've baked my own brown bread and maybe I could've grown a potato, tomato, and mushroom in the garden and collected eggs from home-raised chickens. But I'm definitely not crazy.
1 white button mushroom
1 slice brown bread
3 mini bangers (or 1 regular sized pork sausage)
¼ cup shredded potato (or diced potato)
¼ cup "Heinz" baked beans
+ ketchup or HP sauce
+ hot sauce
This isn't a typical recipe post. I'm just going to walk you through this fry up.
Add a little oil to the pan and fry up some hash browns or home fries. Season liberally with salt and pepper and maybe a little cayenne, if you're feeling sassy. Fry until golden brown (and cooked through, obviously; crunchy potatoes are not proper).
