Having braved a traditional English breakfast...the poor man has suffered enough. Give him some hash browns, some scrambles, some rye toast and some bacon, and a mimosa or three...

This. I thought the idea of an English breakfast was a great idea...and then I had one. I spent the next two hours uncomfortably walking down the streets of London with my first food-induced heartburn and wanting to die.

Agreed. It's so easy and taste way better than the milk/egg slop I was originally shown how to make

Truth.  I even bought a new saucepan for eggs and use it for little else.  Damn good.

The only British breakfast items that I will consider are:

bubble and squeak (but done up, with pancetta and braised napa cabbage and skin-on yukon gold potatoes, not over-cooked everything)

scones

Not to be awkward, but, I'll pass, Gordon. I'd rather poach my eggs, avoid the butter & crème fraiche, and not have to spend three times the value of those eggs just to make them less healthy.

He tossed in about two tablespoons of butter, and at least a tablespoon of crème fraiche, into a single serving of 3 eggs, for Christ's sake. Seriously, that's about 300 calories, most of it in fat. A large egg is about 75-80 calories. He doubled the calories of those eggs, just for a "puffier, looser, creamier" presentation.

English breakfast sausages have a lot of fillers.   In America, we generally only worry about fat content.   You need fat in sausage for flavor and texture.  Grain fillers bring nothing.

/Also baked beans are for BBQ, not breakfast.

Of course it's "good." At 41.9g total fat for a 475 calorie dish (3 large eggs, 2 tbsp. butter, 1 tbsp. crème fraiche), about 377 calories came from fat. It's farking delicious. But, it's not good.

Chili without beans is just a sloppy joe.

I love my breakfast. I really only get to go nuts on the weekend.
Today was hashbrowns with garlic and tomatoes, alongside scrambled eggs with tomatillo salsa, bacon and cheese.

Jaicu: Full English grill .... fried toast, fried onions and potatoes, fried egg, yummmm


well that is true, and you can add mushrooms and tomatoes.  But the amount of oil required for hash browns is impressive.  Or I'm doing it wrong.  I have some onion and potato, I will try this method to get more water out.

Traditional Red Chili is defined by the International Chili Society as any kind of meat or combination of meats, cooked with red chili peppers, various spices and other ingredients, with the exception of BEANS and PASTA which are strictly forbidden.

Also, there's an International Chili Society. I learned something new today.

If Food Network had any balls, they'd green light a comedy/spy thriller about the International Chili Society's enforcement division (black ops) who go around killing "rogue elements" who add beans to their chili. Alton Brown could play the chief who hands out the assignments, or maybe an old, grizzled handler who's got one foot in retirement.

I miss plain old instructional cooking shows. There was something soothing about watching one person in a kitchen, calmly showing you how to prepare a meal without any manufactured drama or celebrity bullshiat. My grandmother and I liked to watch Ming Tsai together.

Those eggs look delicious and I'd like to try them, but I don't think I could eat them more than once a month.

Over the years I have experimented on my own with making scrambled eggs different ways. I independently came up with something very similar. Only things I do differently is allow the butter to melt a little before butting the eggs in and I add a small amount of cream cheese instead of creme fraiche.

This morning I made myself a toasted English muffin with Dungeness crab, steamed asparagus and smothered in hollandaise.

From the pictures I've seen, it just looks far too heavy and high in fat (and possibly protein).

I saw something on TV a while ago about how in the late 19th century US, people started moving away from high-fat breakfasts in favor of more carbohydrates and fiber. Perhaps having set out in a different direction is what has led to better meals on our side of the Atlantic.

Of course, Ramsey makes some damn fine food himself, and he's an influential chef. He could help English restaurants move toward improving their selections.

A bit extreme, but I think most reasonable people would despise the "Full English" breakfast. Streaky bacon? Watery tomato? Baked beans? Blood sausage? For the love of all that's good, England, get a grip.

A short stack of pancakes & maple syrup, 2 patties of country sausage, some grits, and about 8oz of fresh-squeezed orange juice.  You'll waddle away from the table, but you'll be fed until dinner.

You know nothing of American breakfasts, John Ramsey. Creamy eggs and crème fraîche?
1 - Get your bacon and sausages started in a black skillet
2 - Start your coffee
3 - When your meats are about half way done, start your hash browns in a pan
4 - When your hash browns are almost done, move them to the side of the pan and scoop about a half a cup of whatever salsa you have on hand into the center of the pan
5 - When the salsa is bubbling good, dump however many eggs you want on top
6 - Scramble that somebiatch
7 - When the eggs are done, grate some cheese into that yummy goodness, sprinkle hot sauce
8 - Scramble that somebiatch again
9 - Plate all the things and add more cheese on top
10 - Take a nitroglycerin, a few aspirin, call 911, dig in with both fists, and thank God you're American
