My wife insists on getting up before the butcrack of dawn to watch THE wedding. I’m looking for some easy English breakfast fare.

I know that different regions have different food, just like here.

Any ideas?

Black pudding or blood sausage if you will. Not sure if the ingredients vary but black pudding contains blood, suet and oatmeal. Cut it around 2cm thick and fry. 1-2 pieces

Baked beans or tinned plum tomatoes. Choice is yours. 1/4 - 1/2 tin per person.

Proper bacon, or back bacon if you will
2-4 slices.

Some good quality pork sausage, Cumberland sausages are often a favourite. 2-4 sausages

Eggs, fried. 1-2 eggs

Mushrooms, button ones will do... Up to you if you cut them. I tend to slice them. Handful of mushrooms or 2-4 large ones

Toast. 1-3 slices


Decent cup of tea, this part is a must.
I added portions... But tbh it's more of a guide than anything, I've been known to go crazy on either one of the ingredients, sliced fried tomatoes go down well too.

Tbh there's no set rule to an English breakfast, everyone seems to make it slightly different. From cafe to cafe. Kitchen to kitchen.

Personally I love me some fried onions, I usually tend to fry em till they become less opaque then add sliced mushrooms. End result is slightly browned onions with well-cooked mushrooms, sometimes I'll cook these in a little butter.

Never had any complaints...

Others like using hash browns too. A friend of mine was always adamant about adding fried spam.

Beans on toast. It doesn't get much easier than that.

Toast the bread, spread a bit of butter on top, cover with baked beans. Sorted!

It's a massive barm cake with;

3 sausage,
4 bacon,
2 pieces of black pudding,
Tinned tomato,
2 hash browns,
3 fried eggs,
Beans,
And cheese.

Builders brew.

Mmmmmmmmm.

Especially useful for hangovers, as it'll do your brekkie and dinner.

Yeah... You.can cook me breakfast any day


It's the grease and oils, after a night on the drink you kinda need to replace what's lost otherwise you'll feel like you've been licking carpet all day.

I've tried replacements. Nothing comes close to a full English. The breakfast of champions

may be a silly question, but how English are English Muffins?

great with a bit of bacon & eggs.
and tea of course.

Crumpets, if you can find them.

Well, I'm not British, but I have eaten plenty of sandwiches, so I think
that I am qualified to answer.
Make a big batch of spaghetti for supper the night before the big day.
Then for breakfast the menu is a spaghetti ( with a pinch of cinnamon)
on toast sandwich.
Cucumber on toast sandwich is also good.

Most Pohms I know traditionally eat macdonalds for breakfast
Easy answer and easy prepared

Yeah and many people can be found rushing to work... Coffee in one hand, phone in the other.

My grandfather used to eat biscuits with tea. Still does. Times change but classics shall never go out of fashion. It's our culture really, full English is a treat. I guess a McDonald's breakfast should be too.

The Op seemingly wanted to celebrate the day with a good breakfast, I didn't think a maccy D's, crumpets, beans on toast or a few wheatabix would cut it.

I'm not British, but I just found a new breakky that is insane.

Under cook a poached egg, place it in half an avocado, wrap(protect egg ) it in bacon, then throw it all in the oven for 10 min or until bacon is cooked.

It is insane

The other one we like that's simple and great for groups is made with a cupcake pan.
Take bacon and shape it to each of the cupcake forms, then put an egg in each one, throw the whole thing in the oven. Prob 350 for 12min-ish, or until the yolk firms up, then hit with salt and pepper.

You could always fall back to this incredibly unhealthy one, if those don't work.. it is unreal

Bacon Explosion

Good luck! I am starving now and am going to throw a shoulder on the smoker.

I like to soak a piece of salt cod on Saturday night and drain and heat it in water to just about boiling sunday morning. Some butter and salt and pepper on it along with two pieces of buttered toast. I know, tomorrow is not sunday, that is not appropriate. That is something my wife's father taught me years ago, I guess it is cornish, but lots of cultures do almost the same thing.

Marmalade on toast and soft boiled eggs in egg cups is the easiest British breakfast to make. Add a pot of tea (boiled water) and two cups to set it up properly.

Fried egg and bacon on toast is also a British staple. HP or Heinz sauce are optional.
