I cook my mushrooms in butter, worcestershire sauce and a good crack of black pepper. Lovely.

I prefer to start the mushrooms off in a bit of the fat from the smoked bacon and finish with a knob of butter whilst the bacon is crisping off under the grill.

Tea or industrial strength coffee? Strong, milky sweet tea everytime.

Jamie Oliver manages to do everything in one pan - I'm not sure we could find a frying pan big enough. :D

Can't resist a plug for the BlueBell Cafe in Penge (Maple Rd) here if you feel to lazy to do the cooking yourself. A recent discovery that dishes up stupendous breakfasts in lovely surroundings. Being a MASSIVE fan of bubble their vegetarian hash is to die for.

Plug away SL - it was the BlueBell Cafe reviews that wetted my appetite for a Fried Breakfast thread. Perhaps a VN social over breakfast is called for!

What is it about the combination of fried egg (the runny yolk actually), tinned toms, black pudding and fried bread that drives my taste buds insane. It must be a memory thing.

Apologies to the veggies

BUT. A breakfast is all about the meat. Whilst in Dublin a few years back my mate served up a 'Full Irish'. Very dubious, but I am now a massive fan of kidneys and white pudding of a morn

I love white pudding. Last had it in Ireland... where can you buy it locally?
Of course you;d need a brisk walk after having some but it's a pleasure.

Re the curry, I can't really remember what it was Dazza. Somehow it wasn't that appealing at 9 in the morning so I stayed clear :blink:.

Thanks for the plantain tip Charlie - that sounds good so will try that. Glad you like the garden breakfast idea. It's a bit different and easily modified for veggies by substituting the bacon for something like field mushrooms.

I'm quite a fan of black pudding too but can happily live without white. I also did a B&B holiday years ago and the best breakfast we were offered was in the last place. Unfortunately, I was so sick of cooked breakfasts by then that I was begging for cereal!

What exactly is in white pudding? (vegeterians please close eyes) I'm not sure that I quite know.

I've never seen it in CP.

By the way you can grill black pudding if you want the really healthy option.

My all time favourite:

Chicken livers
Smoked bacon
Shallots
Mushrooms
and an egg on top if really hungry.

All cooked in one pan and served on doorstep toast thickly buttered. Mmmmmmm!

White pudding is pork meat, fat and suet. I think...

Last had it in Cork.

When I get some the whole of Auckland Road will smell of white pudding.

WOW - This is top breakfast so far - could you squeeze a kidney or two in there Fungigirl?? Sounds like something you would have camping out in the woods.
