This afternoon, after attending the fabulous Sphinx Dining Club event on behalf of the Picture Palace Campaign at the magnificent St. John the Evangelist Church last night and getting to bed at 3.30am :yawn: , our perfect fried breakfast was scrambled eggs with a splash of milk (couldn't face fried), on thick white toast with field mushrooms (sliced) and fresh tomatoes on the half, fried in the fat of some delicious organic dry cured back bacon, washed down with huge quantities of fresh orange juice/water and very sweet, milky strong tea in rather large mugs.

There is the perfect fried breakfast for every occasion! And this one felt very healthy. B)

Bumping up my own thread:

The White Hart used to do an excellent fried breakfast with all the trimings.

This morning we were going to have fried puffball but couldn't find a frying pan big enough ;)

...scrambled eggs with a splash of milk ...


my parents used to do that when I was a kid, took me years to realise that its a rubbish way off doing scrambled eggs. No offence of course to your tastes. I just scramble eggs furiously (not angrily, just fast!) in a pan with some nice butter, to get them soft and light and still 'wet'.

Love the bubble references. Used to get that in the Cafe before it was Dominoes on Westow, they always did a lovely brekkie, poached eggs with black pudding, bubble and tinned toms. Mnnnn..simple but delightful.

My own brekkie rule is to not allow a plate to become too brown! Not too much meat, else its unbalanced. Soft scrambled eggs with parsley in there for some greenery, else some simple seasoned wilted spinach. A proper doorstep toasted slice with butter, but not melted butter so the toast needs to cool a little before buttering. Either smoked back rashers with teh nice rind on it, or streaky that isn't too cooked that it's burnt, but well cooked that it snaps!

Always loved tinned tomatoes with my breakfast, and funnily I also remember fried bread and the legendary eggy bread of my scouting youth! As a kid we fried it in lard, which turns my stomach thinking of it these days.

We went to the BlueBell Cafe (Maple Rd, Penge) today for brunch - I chose a truly sublime breakfast:
Omelette (delightfully fluffy) with chilli, fresh coriander, kidney beans and cheddar cheese. Will try and add a pic! (if Andreas' instructions work :) )Posted Image

Ah, now thats more like it! My favourite breakfast on my many trips to India is the Masala Omlette. Eggs, tomatoes, hot green chillies, red onion, herbs and if asked for, Indian cheese. Divine!!!

Milk no, but a dash of cream... yum.
An ex flat mate, who is Japanese, used to make them with soy sauce (obviously no cream) which was unexpectedly good.

Fried bread topped with cottage cheese, black pudding, bacon and HP sauce with scrambled eggs and gaucamole with tomato on the side washed down with drink of choice preferably neat vodka or tequila shots- only to be risked in the early hours of the morning after a good night out. Not for those of feint heart or stomach.

Apart from the black pudding that sounds yum! Although I might swap the cottage cheese for black beans lightly simmered with garlic and cumin. .

OOps I meant to write cottage cheese and pineapple. The pineapple cuts through the richness of the black pudding. But yes, absolutely yum! Like the idea of swapping the cottage cheese for black beans and very healthy too.........

I think if we ever had a cooked breakfast competition we would have to get "Mrs Tee" off "Four in a bed" to come along and judge it - for those of you who just might have missed it she was a bonkers german b&b owner who had forthright opinions on such matters as grilling sausages and frying eggs
