What should be in a Full English Breakfast?

One upgrade worth considering; many shops sell jars/tins of baked giant/gigantesbutter beans, which have a much better texture and taste than the sugary blandness of regular baked (haricot) beans like Heinz. The Co-op's brand is Cypressa, which I usually get, but other supermarkets' versions are pretty similar.

Be off with you, we’ll have no middle class poncery where fry ups are concerned.

Today ( and most days) Fresh fruit salad.Strawberries, oranges, apples, pineapple, peaches and pears. All smothered in Greek yoghurt.

One of the strengths of British cuisine is the regional variations. Staffordshire oat cakes and laverbread with bacon. Regional sausage such as Lincolnshire, Cumberland and Westmoreland.

Any other local items?

Much innuendo on Test Match Special about the Dorset Knob, yesterday.

I really miss those fresh oat cakes (Staffordshire)... especially with a breakfast inside or cheese /tomato/pic for a lunch.

Do we still have the houses with their little garages done out to make and sell them... I think Fridays was when we went for our week supply.

I could eat one now. I like all of it. Black pudding, hash browns, fried bread, mushrooms, beans, bacon, egg, sausage, tomatoes, and anything else that I've forgotten. I like american breakfast too. Maple syrup with sausages and stuff. Had it everyday when I stayed in Edinburgh.

I think there are limits though.

Got to have good bacon. I get mine from Angus in donny.... Good streaky... that crisps up and doesn't pizz out that white stuff when you fry it.

I'm funny wi sausage.... they've got to be premium .... again... "the donny" from Wilkinson's my fav.

Eggs from t'farm and i do like fresh picked mushrooms when they're in season. Im fortunate in November I tend to get a few blue stalks..... they are gorgeous...

BUT.... sheeite white is the only bread to fry....

If we have a coal fire lit, I do like a doorstep of a slice of good bread smothered in best butter from the tub.

And of course, a wild haggis if you can get one 😊

Aye.... i can even poncify a fry up!!

Streaky bacon is always too thin. The trick to grilling it is to have two pieces stuck together at first, turn the pair over when one side is done. When the other side is done, split them for one minute before removing from the grill.

Not if you go to Martin at Angus butchers in donny. He cures his own and cuts it at just the right thickness with a nice bit of fat in. His back bacon is good too .... ideal for a sarny but the streaky is perfect for a full monty

To recap on what I said above, anywhere in Scotland, Lorne sausage and specifically in Aberdeen and its hinterland, rowies, also known as butteries.  For the uninitiated, these links may help:

https://www.rowies.scot/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorne_sausage

The butteries link I include as it briefly explains the history, but I have never bought from this source so have no idea how good or not they are.

Fried bread, rasher of streaky, sausage, black pudding, beans, fried tinned tomatoes, a few pre cooked potatoes fried.    In Ireland substitute white pudding for sausage add wheaten bread.  

Years ago a colleague was visiting. He was from Surrey.  We put him up in a hotel in Wakefield.  When he came down to breakfast he was invited to the usual bacon, egg etc. and "the local delicacy" which of course was black pudding.  He turned it down needless to say.

Isn't it in the Calder Valley where they have dock pudding fried in bacon fat?

Yes, in Mytholmroyd to be precise (Championship wise, at least).

Bacon fat aside, I'm surprised the health nuts haven't jumped on the dock pudding bandwagon as an indigenous green mush-type food.

Maybe it tastes really good, which would probably scare them off. You know where you are with kale - miserable.
