I’ve heard this mentioned several times over the last few days and it’s driving me crazy. Does anyone know what should be included in a Proper English Breakfast?

:bnghd:

I found the "proper English breakfast" is supposed to be everything fried.

Egg (fried) - usually served sunny side up for the enlightenment of our American cousins
Bacon (fried)
Sausage (fried) (a.k.a. 'link sausage' in the U.S.)
Tomato (fried)
Fried Bread (fried)
Bubble & Squeak (fried)
Black pudding (fried)
Sliced Potato (fried)
Button mushrooms (fried)
Baked beans (..astonishingly, not fried.. you don't bake 'em either, come to that)
Buttered toast or bread
Large mug of sweet tea (traditional) or coffee


To me it looks like a day of food.

Awesome marg.


That must be it as I was under the impression it was a really involved meal. That definitely fits the bill.

I feel indigestion setting in after reading that list. lol

Thanks and I agree with you I am very surprised at the menu, its a brunch no a breakfast.

It definitely will give me indigestion if I ever get to eat all the food, I even saw a picture of all that in a plate and it was not appetizing at all.

I love onces in a while a Cracker Barrel "all timer" two eggs, turkey sausage and my favorite the sausage gravy on top of the potato casserole.

I only do that onces in a month, due to the fat content, but is just so delicious.

Its also a great hangover cure, if you can stomach it


There are variations, for example I had never heard of having Bubble and Squeek with my English Breakfast before, and asking around my office, theres noone here who has either.

Generally, the EB you can get in cafes over here consists of:

Fried Egg
Sausage
Bacon
Tomatoe
Baked Beans
Hash Brown
Black pudding
Button Mushrooms
Fried Bread

and tea or coffee.

mmmm I love a good fry up in the morning! I limit my family to just indulging when we are on holiday or occasionally one of my sons will want a cooked breakfast when it's his birthday.
My fry ups consist of
Fried egg with a nice runny yolk of course
fried bread
baked beans
sausages
bacon
and black pudding for my husband, (I don't like the idea of fried blood and fat myself ! )
and mustn't forget a nice big blob of tomato sauce to dip it all in

so I don't really have the full works
it's all washed down with either tea or coffee, no sugar in either cause I'm sweet enough

Posh answer

Truth:


Bubble & Squeak

This is another very old dish, used as a way of finishing up the leftovers from a previous meal...

Welcome to the wonderful world of English cuisine.

Awww man....Let's not get on the subject of traditional English "cuisine"....


London is famous for having an incredible variety of restaurants for one reason and one reason alone....


Spotted Dick anyone?! Mmmmmmmmm

My family Bubble & Squeek recipe, meat free. (this should be in RATS)

Prepare this the 24hrs prior to brekky.

#1 Make a lot of mashed potato. *use good spuds*
#2 Par Boil a relatively small amount of peas, cauliflower and cabbage. *par boil, 6min max*
#3 Finely chop an onion and fry in a shallow oil for 2min, then off the stove. *keep it moving or they will burn*...drain the oil from the onions on paper towel.
#4 Combine above ingredients by gently 'folding' in a large bowl.
#5 Stick the bowl in the fridge.

Next morning, just heat up the pan with a bit of oil and fry the recipe just like a hamburger pattie.

Here's one i prepared earlier,
