Full English Breakfast - Eat Like Royalty During The Royal Wedding

Full Breakfast

While I may not be excited about watching the Royal Wedding on Saturday morning (it starts at 4am by the way) I am excited for the food element that could be brought to the table for it. A Full English Breakfast seems like just what the doctor ordered. 

If you're going to engage in such affairs as watching a Royal Wedding you'll want a meal that will keep you energized. This full breakfast, or fry up, is exactly that. You may as well feast as if you were a royal. 

So what is it? According to WikiPedia:

The traditional full English breakfast includes bacon (traditionally back bacon),[7] fried, poached or scrambled eggs, fried or grilled tomatoes, fried mushrooms, fried bread or buttered toast, and sausages (also called "bangers").

 

Here's what you'll need:

  • Eggs - two or three depending on how hungry you are, but most everyone is in agreement that runny yolks are essential.
  • Meat - Both sausage and bacon are needed for this meal. Serious Eats says, "The combination of both bacon and sausage is one of the essential elements to a full fry up."
  • Beans - I'm not going to tell you to eat them, but as a person who loves baked beans I am 100% on board with this. They are the "anchor" of the dish.
  • Tomatoes - I thought there were optional, or just a nice garnish but the acidity in the tomato helps with the fattiness of the other dish elements. So don't for get to fry up  a couple of tomato slices.
  • Toast/Fried Bread -While you could just make toast, frying the bread in butter or bacon grease in the pan is the English way. 

Serious Eats has a complete full guide on how to make the Full Breakfast. Eat up, enjoy, and don't forget your little hat.
