Is it a full english if there are no beans?
Thoughts on how to use the toast if there's no beans or jam.
and fried mushrooms are good on the toast.
It's not a proper fry up without at least a spoonful of beans though (especially if you're having fried bread- you need beans for that shit.)
havong said that- if' I'm doing as scottish breakfast (haggis slice, lorne, black/ white pudding, potato scone, fruit pudding, eggs) then I don't bother with the beans. Hmmm.
that does the best fry-up I've ever had. Perfect ingredient selection. Perfect proportions. Only £3.50. Awesome.
but there's one in Deptford which does a cracking breakfast. On the main road when you come out the train station.
of course you have to have beans.
served on a plank of wood with some greaseproof paper.
Preferably almost impossible to eat.
the anti-gravity beans
seem to have successfully shoved this fact down the memory hole as I've only been once. unexpectedly decent result for willpower.
That's *shite* value mate.
bigger than your head.
still - two sausage, two bacon, two egg, hash brown, loads of beans and mushrooms + free roll for £3 - that's not bad value, it's just a bit of a weird way to price it out.
Great service, nice coffee, swap outs, nice food and a garden.
I think you need beans but I wouldn't berate someone if they didn't have any.
But I do feel cheated if there's no black pudding.
2 rashers of bacon
2 fried eggs
2 slices of toast
2 hash browns
1 slice of fried bread
1 black pudding
And you're missing a grilled tomato.
Otherwise, spot on.
Plus toast, fried bread and hash browns?
And that breakfast would be woefully dry without beans. You have no business here, Steved. You're embarrassing yourself.
having more sausages than rashers of bacon? The balance is all off. Also, maushrooms, urgh. I guess that's just me though...
Sausages are much nicer than bacon, and are the focal point of the whole experience.
is genuinely mental.
not a fry without at least 3 types of bread
Of course it has to have bean, and grilled tomato. Don't make me choose. Thanks. And yes I WILL pay you an extra £2 for a slice of black pudding.
Ketchup or brown, though...
but mostly brown!
I'm happy enough with the bean juice and egg yolk.
glad I could save you from a potential life of moral degeneracy there x
And I raise you a 'you definitely have'.
But I endorse it anyway.
As you were.
it's the sort of thing i would insist on moving over
beans with chili flakes
toast with peanut butter
quite like adding other veg like roasted peppers and red onions with thyme.
Going to go and meditate for a few hours and try and tackle it then.
which is a shame. Love fried mushrooms though - as long as they aren't over done.
Prefer bacon in a sandwich, but not fussed about them in a full English, would rather have:
4 nice thick sausages (oo-er etc etc)
2 Pieces of Toast + butter
2 Poached or scrambled eggs
2 Hash Browns
1 Fried Tomato
Fuck ton of pepper
+ 1 slice of black pudding - if it's a nice one
gonna have a ridiculous breakfast tomorrow. can't wait.
are one of those rare things that tend to get progressively worse the more you spend on them.
a cheap sausage can really ruin a cooked breakfast. But I think there's a maximum cost of a cooked breakfast, beyond which you're wasting your money.
In fact, when alcxxk was laughing at me yesterday for saying I liked the wetherspoons Gourmet hotDog, what he failed to realise is that I lvoe really cheap sausages I lvoe the ones you get in a tin with an all day breakfast/ beans. I LOVE the soft plasticky crap ones you get in cinemas.
pulled pork dog = somehow horrible, their pulled pork is so sweet and gloppy.
As long as they aren't gristley then price isn't really a factor.
i know what you mean though, its the grease that makes it
When I used to live in the south they were bloody wonderful.
Walking over to tray after tray of waffles, pancakes, crispy streaky bacon, mushrooms, refried beans, grits, sausages, eggs of every kind, potatoes, ham, french toast, hash browns, spanish omelettes, english muffins...
fuck. Bloody loved it. I actually miss grits.
Ruined many a lunch.
(side note: Did you ever go to Sweet Tomatoes?)
Brooke is going back to the states for Ten days on Sunday and I'm mainly jealous due to food more than anything else.
I really want to go back to GA so I can have a huge buffet breakfast and then go to the Georgia Pig in the evening (if it's still open). Absolutely ridiculous place.
I've seen them before but never been :(
scrambled/fried egg (different eggs for different needs)
dunno if i've ever had all of those together, but that's the dream line up
1x Fried Egg
1x Scrambled Egg
1x Big Grilled Tomato
2x Hash Brown
1x Dollop o' Mushrooms
1x Black Pudding
2x Slice Of Toast
then finish it off with a Potato Cake and orange marmalade, bit o' fruit
that there is somethign wodnerful about having a breakfast for your lunch or dinner (lunch/tea, whatever you call it, I mean the meal that is not breakfast, brunch or supper).
It feels so good! I love a fry up lunch half way through the week. Or toast with beans and sausages on them for a quick lazy and cheap dinner. MMmmm.
or just the scottish dissers?
Especially if you've been up all night
Ideally with fried bread, lots of brown sauce, glass of orange juice AND a black coffee please thanks.
