Looking at one of the other threads got me thinking about what makes the perfect fried breakfast and what we should believe when it comes to a cooked breakfast:

Why the great British Breakfast is a killer?

or

A Fried Breakfast is the healthiest start to the day!

What tickles your taste buds is it:

Bacon - grilled or fried
Fried eggs
Poached eggs
Scambled eggs
Black Pudding
White Pudding
Fried potatoes
Tinned plum toms or fried fresh toms
Mushrooms - buttons, field, grilled, fried or steamed
Sausage - fat or skinny, pork, beef or veggie
Baked beans
Plantain
Tom ketchup
HP sauce
Toast
Fried bread
Hash browns


All of the above? None of the above? or Some of the above?

I'm a big fan of Eggs Benedict - not exactly English though I guess ... :unsure:

Other than that I like marmite and honey on toast :ph34r:



Just read your post properly - if it has to be fried then nothing beats bubble!

Ahhh Bubble and Squeak!! Good choice SL.

I hadn't properly thought out whether it should be english, british, other or totally fried but perhaps we should widen it out to include anything else that is cooked and hot and totally ignore the health issue :o.

So following in the VN tradition of divergence from the OP I'm adding:

Eggs benedict
Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs
Kedgeree
Croque Monsieur
Cheese and ham croissant
Pancakes.......................
Ham, eggs and cheese ( farmers breakfast)
Left over triffle and christmas dinner

My personal favourite and this is going back to the days of my grandparents up in the Midlands:

Bacon
Sausage
Fried egg
Black pudding
Fried bread
Tinned tomatoes

the fried bread being the real treat.

Hotly followed by triffle and left over chinese takeaway.

I'll debate the health issue another day but all things in moderation is a clue.

Eggs Florentine or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for me. Plus porridge the way my Pa makes it.

My guilty pleasure brunch (though I've only had it once that I can recall) would be Eggs Royale (smoked salmon and poached eggs) and chips at the Little Palace Cafe...heavenly.

Moved to the Tavern.

For me... finely chopped basil in scrambled eggs. Wonderful.

That sounds sublime Gekko and very healthy. Did you partake in sauce?

I'm assuming you were replenishing your carbs with the sweet potato? Fried plantain is delicious too.

I have tasted some of the best fried breakfasts in southern ireland where you get both black and white pudding.

A good breakfast certainly sets you up for the day when you are walking and exploring but after a week of them a few years ago on a B & B holiday I never wanted to see another fry up again.

Crispy Bacon / Scrambled Egg/ Fried Egg / Grilled Tomatoes / Chipolatas / Baked Beans / Mushrooms / Fried Potatoes / Bread and Butter / Brown Sauce / Lots of Salt / Cup of Tea

Definitely no hash browns - they are an american import and should have no place in a traditional british fried breakfast which I agree is the perfect fuel for a good hike until your evening meal.

Ofcourse I completely forgot about the manx or craster kipper - poached, fried in bacon fat or grilled with a knob of butter. Served with plenty of brown bread and butter.
