Full English

Hello everyone!

I can’t believe it’s the last day of Breakfast Week already!

As the cherry on the cake, my favourite breakfast in the whole wide world: Full English.

The only disadvantage of Full English used to be the washing up: a pan for the eggs, one for the bacon, another one for the sausages and a fourth for the vegetables. Until I came across this Jamie Oliver recipe for it when I saw him making it on TV. Clever Jamie using one tray only for most of the ingredients.

I often leave out the baked beans and black pudding. For this recipe I’m using bacon strips, as I don’t always get the typical English bacon in my shops.

This, for me, is more a brunch than a breakfast. I usually have it on a Sunday morning and eat some fruit between 8 and 10. The brunch plate is so well-filled that I don’t need another meal until dinner. Ideal when you’ve planned an afternoon out.

I hope you’ll enjoy it one Sunday morning soon.

Happy cooking!
