Sometimes called a fry up, a full English is a hearty, hefty breakfast plate served world wide.
Full English breakfasts are so popular that they’re pretty much offered throughout the day as all-day breakfast.
Pattaya has alot of places that serve Breakfast good and bad , whats your thoughts
According to the internet, full English breakfasts need:
- Sausages – I think everyone just goes with whatever sausages they like, but sometimes there are 2-3 kinds on a plate. We went with regular breakfast sausages and we also got a bit of black pudding, which seems like most people insist on having as well.
- Back Bacon – This isn’t your regular bacon, which is made from pork belly, nope, back bacon is bacon that includes a little bit of the loin, kinda like a super thin pork chop but smoked. From what I can see, this kind of bacon isn’t really crispy.
- Eggs – Pretty straight forward, all the full English plates I’ve seen have sunny side up eggs.
- Tomatoes – These guys are cut in half along the equator and then seared in the pan and seasoned with salt and pepper. They aren’t really cooked, just given a little bit of color.
- Mushrooms – Seems like a take or leave it item, but we’re going all out here so of course mushrooms are needed. They’re cooked in the usual way, nicely browned and caramelized
- Toast – Don’t call it toast because I’ve seen some internet fights break out about the bread. You can’t just use a toaster and call it a day. The bread has to be FRIED, either with butter or oil.
- Beans – You have to have beans! I mean, I’ve never really had beans at breakfast, but it’s classic. We went for Heinz because that’s what they do in England and because their teal cans are too cute
Any sort of potato is frowned upon on a full English.
They’re seen as filler. If you even think of putting fries on, someone might get stabbed.
You could do bubble and squeak (potatoes and cabbage mixed together and fried) but even then, some people are going to come after you.
Do they serve hash browns with Full English breakfasts?
Some people serve hash browns with a full English and some people think it is sacrilegious.
Hash browns are more modern addition and that’s why they are so contentious.
When you do see hash browns on a full English, they typically tend to be the triangle frozen variety as opposed to home made shredded potatoes.
If you want a potato product that isn’t hash browns, bubble and squeak (fried potatoes and cabbage) is probably much more traditional.
Which kind of baked beans?
British baked beans are absolutely a key part of a full English.
British style beans are made with beans and a tomato sauce seasoned with carrots, celery and Worcestershire.
American style Southern baked beans are usually cooked with bacon and brown sugar, with a much more thick sauce.
Go for British style Heinz baked beans. A reader suggested Branson baked beans. We haven’t tried them but they’re spoken of very highly on the internet!
What to serve with a full English breakfast
Coffee or tea! Tea is traditionally English but coffee is perfectly acceptable too. Add milk, sugar, and/or cream based on personal preference.
