Full English Breakfast

The traditional full English breakfast (see below) often includes bacon, eggs (fried or poached), fried or grilled tomatoes, baked beans, fried mushrooms, fried bread or toast, hash browns, black pudding (up North) and sausages.

The Full English Breakfast is usually served with a mug of tea. The concept of the English breakfast is probably relatively recent. It seems to have emerged in the mid-1800s, and it was particularly popular among wealthy members of society, though now the Full English is associated with "Greasy Spoon" cafes for manual workers.

English Breakfast
The traditional full English breakfast is widely offered in cafes and Bed and Breakfasts (B&Bs) throughout England.

Like fish and chips, the Full English is an iconic dish of British cuisine. One Italian truck driver of my acquaintance would eat nothing else while in England, deeming the rest of British fare unpalatable.
