Full English

You can add to and you can subtract from the basic ingredients, but as long as you are frying bacon, egg and tomato, you are halfway to the culinary paradise that is the Full English Breakfast.

The Full Monty!
The Full Monty!

Cook Time

Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 10 min
Yields: 1


  • Egg
  • Bacon
  • Sausage
  • Black pudding
  • Tomato
  • Mushrooms
  • Baked beans
  • Hot oil
  1. With the sausage already cooking in the pan, add the rashers of bacon (back, middle, or streaky, any sort will do) cooking for 5-10 minutes depending on the cut. Add the sliced black pudding. Turn each as necessary.
  2. At the same time gently heat the beans and cook the mushrooms in butter or olive oil.
  3. Fry the halved tomato about five mins. from the end, trying to keep the juices out of the pan.
  4. Set aside the bacon, black pudding, sausage and tomato, and making sure the oil is hot, crack an egg into the pan. I like my egg firm, uncrispy, with a soft yolk, so I spoon hot oil onto the egg with the ring turned down.
  5. Serve with toast, buttered bread (bread may also be fried in the bacon fat), tomato ketchup or HP sauce.
