What is full English breakfast is the question we heard so many times, and traditional full English breakfast always contains eggs, baked beans, tomatoes and bacon but also some of the classic British ingredients like black pudding or bubble and squeak . This “Fry-up” as it usually referred, is not something you should look online whit that “near me” prefix, because it’s really simple to make it at your home and it will taste even better.

This version of full English breakfast does not have all of the traditional ingredients. We wanted to modify this recipe a bit and added some substitutes we thought will fit in great, especially because it’s not so easy to find some of the traditional full English breakfast ingredients.

One thing’s for sure, Full English Breakfast will help you endure all day without any snacks and give you enough energy for any kind of work.

It's really tasty and you should definitely try grill cheese in Full English. It brings balance with strong ingredients like bacon and sausages.
We marinated one portion in olive oil with herbs, and  other in spicy mixture of olive oil and chilli pepper. It stayed one whole night in the fridge before grilling.
For perfect fried eggs, be sure your oil is extremely hot. Use that oil and pour it over the egg with a spoon while cooking.
