A Full Irish Or An English Breakfast.


We made ourselves an 'all day' breakfast the other day.   We cooked it in the range.  It didn't curl up and wither like it does in a frying pan.


Ours is a combination of an English and Irish breakfast.  This breakfast is said to have originated on farms and in houses where the inhabitants did physical work.

A Full Irish consists of: "The Rashers" (bacon), Irish sausages, Black and white pudding, baked beans ("bachelors")eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes (halved) potato farls/cakes or traditional boxty, soda bread, butter jam, Barrys or Lyons tea, orange juice...

I found this video about what Americans think of the "Full" English breakfast.  Please let me know your thoughts.

    1. Hello Cheryl. Thanks for your comment. I think baked beans were originally calley Navy beans and came from America. They are haricot beans covered in tomato sauce. The English breakfast seems to use Heinz baked beans and the Irish breakfast use Bachelors beans. Also we use Hashed Browns in our breakfast and I have read that they originate in Switzerland. Thanks!

  2. I will go one breakfast better than the two you have mentioned here and I write from experience :-)
    An Ulster Fry
    Two fried eggs, the all-important lightly browned potato and soda breads, perfect pork sausages, 2 rashers of crispy bacon, mushrooms, black and white pudding and a juicy red tomato , plus a small steak - it is a great start to any day.

    It’s also the perfect recovery the morning after an evening of over indulging.

    1. Thanks Heron. Yes I am sure a small steak would make a great addition to the Irish fry. Some people have a drink of milk with their meal. Looking on the Internet. There seems to be lots of regional and International different breakfasts. Thanks!

  3. All day all right! You'll need half the day to eat it all and the other half to digest it. Scrumptious. Wish a little leprechaun would make me a brekkie like that tomorrow morning

    1. All day breakfast is a good way of giving you time to prepare, cook and eat it LA. We often have a full breakfast at tea time. Soup and bread making again today.

  4. Strange, but I think a lot of English only eat full English breakfast when they're on holiday?

    My own breakfast feast would be gammon, Cumberland sausage, duck eggs, Bury black pudding, toast; no beans, mushrooms, hash browns or tomato. Coffee.

    Dream on, it's more likely to be boiled egg and toast, porridge, kipper and toast, bacon butty or omelette.
    This morning it's going to be prawn omelette and toast.

    1. Yes Cumbrian I am a coffee person too. Haven't seen ham rashers for years. Suppose gammon would be OK. We had a full English breakfast on holiday last year in Portugal nearly every day for 3 Euros fifty five each washed down with a pint of Super Bock.

  5. My brothers used to have a full English breakfast after milking every morning. My mother would have everything ready and fry the eggs while they washed their hands.

    1. Hi Rachel. Your brothers would need an hearty breakfast after milking every morning. Lovely memories. It was the same here when we came on holiday and my grandmother was always cooking and baking. She fed the livestock before she fed her self.

  7. I was always amazed when a kid and watching Eastenders, not only do people on that programme have money to go to the pub every night they also have money to have a fried breakfast in a cafe or take away from the cafe every day. When we ate meat we probably only had a full english if it was Easter or Christmas. I have never eaten pork/pig products so I used to order it all and then people take what they want from my plate to leave me with the bread, mushrooms tomatoes, beans etc.

    its porridge here made with almond milk or my favourite that we have every sunday, waffles made with a mixture of oat and almond milk topped with chopped banana chocolate spread heated up with a dollop or 2 of crunchy peanut butter mixed it (dont knock it till you try it, think more nutty nutella but cheaper). That and hot chocolate made with almond milk with a little coconut milk if we have any sitting around

  8. Hi Sol. I use to think the same about Coronation Street. Why did the characters need to eat some of Betty's "lovely hotpot" when they lived in the same street. Had they no food at home? I think they use cafe's and pubs for the characters to interact and socialize.

    You have some good breakfasts Sol. What's almond milk?

  9. almond milk is like soya milk. its a dairy replacement

  15. I am here to testify for what DR. ASIKA did for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 3 years and had constant pain and inching, especially in my private part. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be cured someday .This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of Rose Smith on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. ASIKA on how he cured her from 7 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of this man, advise anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him I have faith he can cure me too,, DR. ASIKA prepared and sent me Healing Oil, Soap, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after four weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more inching , pain on me anymore as DR. ASIKA assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test behold the result came out negative. So friends my advise is if you have such disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like *HPV, *HBV, *HIV, * etc. you can contact DR. ASIKA for help via email} drasika223@gmail.com or WhatsApp him through his mobile +2347065795494 or his Facebook page @drasikahomecure
