2 fried eggs, baked beans, one sausage, 2 slices of streaky bacon, 2 fried slices of spam (i know!) one slice of toast, and a huge mug of Earl Grey Tea slips down a treat!

I dread to think what Spam is made of. :blink:

Perfect fried breakfast of the moment is a fried egg sandwich - Fried egg - runny yoke gently basted with hot fat, egg white firm and slightly crisp on the underside and edges sandwiched between thickly sliced multigrain bread. Throw in a splash of HP sauce - Yum Yums :D

Am enjoying having a hot thread to myself. Latest in the fried breakfast stakes is potato bread (fried) made to a Rachel de Thample recipe with two poached eggs on top and watercress, mixed with mushrooms and tomatoes lightly fried in garlic and chilli, on the side. Yum yums

Had a slice of toast with butter topped with HP Sauce this morning - double yums! (a throwback to my stints on night duty during my NHS years - more often than not we were too understaffed and too busy to be able to take a break and go to the canteen, so the only other option was toast and HP sauce from the ward kitchen).

I have taken to putting Reggae Reggae sauce on my eggs. It's marvellous.

As served by Arins on Annerley Hill, my perfect fried brekkie is Double Egg, Bubble, Bacon, Fried Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Fried Bread and two cups of Builder's Tea. There must be pepper, tomato sauce, and a Guardian on the table. It should also be a Saturday. The rest of the week, brekkie is a cheese or ham sarny, eaten al desko. Homemade bread, natch, and always with pepper and a few slices of tomato in the sarny.
I make mixes, some of which are quite good. My wife and I cook things too.

Tomatoes lightly fried in a splash of olive oil and knob of butter with a pinch of salt served on multi seed toast (no butter) is leading the way at the moment as my perfect fried breakfast. Must be followed by quadruple espresso - continental blend fairtrade coffee topped with warm milk and two sugars.

Looking forward to trying Mediterranea's new breakfast menu which will also include a fish option.

Hmm not keen on fried food, but my favourite cooked breakfast would be poached egg on marmite toast.

Yes, I'm also looking forward to Mediterranea opening for breakfast although I'm never really sure about fish for brekkie tbh. Does anyone have an update on when Efisio is going to start doing this?

I love fish for breakfast although its much more common overseas - we do a pretty good line in smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, traditional kedgeree or kippers with bread and butter. I believe Efisio's full english starts the first weekend in March.

If it's slightly unusual brekkies we're talking, I believe a good curry to be one of the all time greats. We went to India over Xmas, and I had the classic Kerala breakfast of Idli-Vada-Sambar every day; a couple of steamed rice dumplings, with a couple of fried oniony savoury doughnut sort of things and a good dose of curry gravy, all washed down with Masala Chai. Nyom. Whenever we get a curry delivery (India Dining Club in Gipsy Hill usually), I always make sure to order just a little bit too much, so the leftovers become breakfast next day.

Also, we make a lot of curries at home:- https://sites.google...le-eastern-food

Ah - weird breakfasts. Now we're talking :D

One of my all time faves was an emergency breakfast with what we scavenged from a corner store as it was about to close around midnight when we had just arrived in Dubrovnik (we were staying in a self-catering appt). I had toasted bread topped with apricot jam and then further topped with canned spicy tuna salad. Surprisingly yummm....
