I'm a big guy, but the most breakfast I can manage is maybe two sausages, some toast, an orange, coffee and milk.

Black pudding. Some sort of blood sausage, right? Is their toast really round? What is the fried bread fried in, butter, lard, or wesson oil? Do they supply salsa for the eggs?

So many calories, so many questions.

In order:

1 - yes
2 - the toast and fried bread *aren't* shown - those golden round things are the hash browns
3 - usually the frying pan used to fry the sausages/bacon/eggs in the leftover bacon/sausage/egg fat
4- hell no. tomato ketchup or brown sauce, which I believe Americans call steak sauce

Is that a serious question?

First of all, having the misfortune of having to eat at the Brit mess in KAF (thank fark we were only there for four days - the next 7 months of rations were an improvement) I can honsetly say whatever they cook turns vile. Don't farking deep fry toast you assholes.

Secondly, there's a little place here in Saskatoon that's probably run by Hell's Angels. Cash only greasy spoon conspicuously close to their clubhouse. A mixed grill plate is 6.50 CAD, and is about the size of a Roomba. It's at least a half package of bacon. Heaping portion of fresh hash browns. Ham cooked that same morning and lightly fried for warm serving, eggs, toast...just a monster meal for 6 bucks. Not many can finish that plate. I can, of course, but I have to be at the gym in 26 minutes to burn off those calories.

Thank you for your answers. I did realize, however, that the toast and fried bread wasn't shown. In the article they describe "rounds of toasts". So I wondered if that were British for "round toast" or rather "pieces of toast".

hell no. tomato ketchup or brown sauce, which I believe Americans call steak sauce

I would use ketchup for some of the items on that breakfast. Steak sauce not so much. But eggs without salsa would just make me sad. But I would get over it.

To the others in the threat that commenting on the beans: yeah, I don't eat baked beans for breakfast either. But I do like them well enough. If someone set a breakfast platter in front of me that had them, I would just shrug and eat them happily enough.

Well, I'll try to state this briefly. Diverticulitis, it's called. I never knew what it was until it got so badly that I couldn't take the pain any more. I don't trust doctors much, my dumb ass.

I about brought it to the fatal point before the ambulance thing.

Once in the hospital, though:

A round of toast is a nondeterminate number of slices. Some people say one slice of bread, some say two, some say as many pieces as will fit in your toaster and some say as many as you have in one serving.

Beans are lovely on toast. That breakfast is truly glorious. Far too much to eat at once, but well worth the cost to try. Even better to share. I haven't felt this hungry in ages.

That wasn't toast, it was a fried slice (of bread).

Fun fact the dogs in the British Army get more spent on them at meal times than the squaddies. So its going to be warm and thats all the good you can say about it (unless its the Gurkhas cooking) . The squaddies put up with it because you get to wash it down with large amounts of strong, sweet milky tea. Remove the tea and you will have tanks outside the houses of parliament before you can say general mutiny.

If I'd had more money on me that day, I would have been in the same situation. As it was, I bought a whiskey glass there. My only other souveniors were a glass jewelry box from the Waterford Crystal factory (very neat tour, btw) and a Celtic cross and claddagh ring, each picked up at random little small shops in the middle of nowhere.

The roads were a huge adjustment - not the direction, but rather the smaller ones on the very edge of a freakin' huge sheer cliff. We rented a little cottage and were always back before dark because we didn't want to deal with driving on that road at night.

There's a restaurant in mid-Michigan near Frankenmuth called Tony's. You order "eggs and bacon" for breakfast, and you get as many eggs and as many rashers of bacon the cook feels like giving you. It sounds awesome, but after you're finished, your mouth and tongue are so swollen from all the salt that you can't talk.

You eat fried eggs with salsa? WTF? Does not compute.


Don't knock it until you've tried it. Also, salsa on a baked potato is awesome (and a lot healthier than butter, cream, cheese, bacon, etc.)

Hence the toast. It's sauce spongeriffic.

Spiralmonkey: robohobo: I see neither bacon nor hash browns. I see ham and fried potato triangles, though.

Seige101: I see ham on that plate but no delicious bacon!

It IS bacon, just got a lot more meat than you would get in American bacon - that looks like the fatty cut-offs of British bacon.

What Americans call bacon, us Brits call steaky bacon (it's pork belly bacon).

What us Brits call bacon, the Americans call Canadian bacon (it's back bacon)

It's back bacon, which is what you generally get when you ask for bacon in the UK:

I think the default bacon in the US is what we'd call streaky bacon:

Pork belly, rather than loin, and a much higher fat:meat ratio.

stoli n coke: Never understood the baked beans with breakfast. Between that, the eggs, and the coffee, aren't you setting yourself up for a gastric tornado?


English breakfast of baked beans, roast tomatoes, and English muffin was the best ever when we were in Europe. Everywhere else the standard is pastries and/or processed meats. It is kind of like Migas here in Texas: eggs mixed with corn tortilla strips and tomato salsa, served with refried beans. But savory not spicy...

Which is funny because what Canadians call bacon Americans also call bacon.

It's kind of like if we were to start calling salsa 'american ketchup' or something.

Meat is pretty rare at the breakfast table in Germany. Usually you get slices of bread (or rolls) and some spread (jam, preserves, nutella). Maybe a boiled egg.
Ham and soft cheese is a bit more likely in the Northern parts, though. The usual US cornflake brands are quite popular, too. As is Muesli, for those into that kinda thing.

Sounds a bit spartan, but then lunch is the main meal, not dinner, so there's less need for something to last you all day.

British bacon and sausages just do not compare to what we get over here. They shouldn't even be called the same thing. And fried bread is disgusting.

Anyone against beans with breakfast needs to try it, you don't know what your missing. Salsa on eggs sounds weird to me because I expect breakfast to be cold or hot, not both. Warmed slasa would be good though.

English sausages are meant to be eaten in a meal, with something else, not on their own. If you took a bite of just sausage, without beans, egg or toast, you are doing it wrong. If it's not breakfast, and your sausage is not eaten with mash or gravy, you are doing it wrong. Also, a sausage and bacon butty is a great breakfast.

Fried bread is delicous. For best results with streaky bacon, fry your bacon, then fry your tomato, then fry the bread. You want the grease just on the outside, not soaked in, so the bread crisps like toast. Crank the heat till it browns, and you have some bascon tomato toast. Everyone who has had my breakfasts loves it, though they do make comments about their heart, glad they don;t eat it every day and such.

/Just came back from England, loved the food. Especially the battered sausage

In Orlando, a friend and I would head out to a local irish pub that served Full English Breakfast (sans blood pudding) on Saturdays. It was always accompanied by a pint of Guinness.

A full Irish breakfast should also have white pudding.

Oh, yeah, forgot about that! The Granite St. Cafe, in Quincy, MA has white pudding and beans.

I don't know what part of Upstate NY you're in, but a 30 second search of google for "Irish Breakfast" Upstate New York got me:

That's not "Frühstück", i.e. breakfast, it's part of "Frühschoppen", which is basically brunch with fewer fingerfood and much more beer.

Even Bavarians don't drink beer with (every) breakfast...

the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad, so I had one more for dessert.
