So it's an English breakfast then?

No, it has soda bread and leprechaun hearts.
Other than that I sort of agree, except toast is not disposable. You need it to sop up the grease.

Why would you rate the individual elements of a dish that's meant to be taken as a whole? It's greater than the sum of its parts.

This is like taking apart a strawberry-amaretto cake and rating the individual ingredients. "I don't know - this flour is dry and bland. It's lacking everything but a mealy wheat flavor, and it has a pasty finish."

I agree with the top 2, bacon & eggs. Hash browns are good sometimes but I prefer buttery toast (no double carbs). But the author is wrong about how to cook an egg, they should NEVER BE CRISPY. The egg in the top photo is perfectly cooked, white cooked, yolk runny. To me beans are not for breakfast, same with tomatoes (unless it's the ketchup for half of the hash browns, the other half to be dipped in the yolk). No blood/black or white pudding & definitely NO mushrooms.

St. Paddy's Day= amateur night. In. Every. God. Damn. Way. You stupid knobs.

Howabout celebrating your heritage every goddamn day, talk to your ancestors, be nice to people, help those who have less than you, you farking goddamn wankers. Save the green bowlers for the imbeciles.

FTFY.

At least, that's what my family does.

That's a pretty solid ranking. Personally I'd put the mushrooms at the bottom but mushrooms are my Vegetable of Hate.

I think most of us have that one vegetable we particularly despise.

They're not a vegetable.

/Mushrooms vary greatly depending on what kind they are.  Avoid the white button ones, and never eat a canned mushroom.

I have more than one:

Cauliflower
Brussels Sprouts
Sweet Potatoes/Yams
Squash
Beets
Parsnips
Rutabagas
Turnips
Okra
Cooked Green Cabbage
Fennel
Eggplant
Green Bell Peppers
Mushrooms (if they are considered to be a vegetable)

bratface: Mushrooms (if they are considered to be a vegetable)


I say that they are. The term vegetable is purely culinary. There is no biological definition. Therefore the fact that mushrooms are biologically classified as fungi rather than plants strikes me as being irrelevant in regards to their status as being vegetables.

Mushrooms are considered nutritional vegetables, regardless of their biological taxonomy by the US Agricultural Department

It's always about the preparation. I absolutely loathe onion but there's a taco truck near me where I'll ask for extra grilled onions on my food.

Some time back, I revisited a lot of the foods I hated when I was young and some of them are now among my favorites. When done right.

The Irish do not serve edible sausages.  They go at the bottom.

That's a lot of "sour-y" veg that you're not into.

/not all, but some.
//and I like everything on that list

Nope, not fat. I eat a lot of other vegetables.

It pains me that people think supermarket button mushrooms = porcini or morels or chanterelles. It's the culinary equivalent to "I made a cherry pie, but I didn't have cherries so I used grapefruit"

I don't think there is any confusion, the price tag is a pretty good tip

I liked my eggs sunny side up until my late teens.  I've been cooking 'em over easy since then.  Funny how a person's tastes can shift, over the years.

My tastes haven't really changed, I just do not want slimy whites because I only eat the yolks (I dip the bacon, toast, & hash browns in the runny yolk). That is why I thought the picture showed a perfectly cooked egg.
