A Breakfast for Me Mum

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]With an English Heritage and the breakfast I was born upon from my mom, from her mum and her mum’s mother you can guarantee was living quite lavish to be able to supplement the family with a fried up sensation as the Full Monty.  The Olde English.  The in my humble opinion – Breakfast of Champs.

So what’s on the menu?

You will need:

  • Eggs
  • Sausage links
  • Bacon
  • Beans
  • Tomato
  • Bread
  • Mushrooms
  • Potatoes
  • And Kippers if you must, you bloody glutton!

SAUSAGE & BACON are staple items and must not be substituted with ham or any of the peameal/Canadian bacon shit.  No no, we want it to walk from the farm and hop into the frying pan, get right greasy and sizzle while the rest of this cholesterol sabotaging meal is prepped.

BEANS would best be brown and covered in a sauce or molasses if possible.  Canned beans are absolutely the way to go because 1) is there any other way and 2) we want mothers to eat on Mum’s Day so lets keep it simple for the kids (and spouses!)

BREAD & TOMATO & MUSHROOMS usually don’t get put into a directions section together but when you are cooking a full English, well this is really just where you now fry items in butter…yes the bread is fried.  Dripping potentially and mindful this doesn’t set off any alarms from the potential “too crisp” it can become in seconds.  Eyes peeled on your vegetable folks – they must be shiny in order to gauge their “ready” state.

EGGS are always over easy, in fact – the English beg to differ that there are many other ways to cook an egg. Poached perhaps and the good ol half boiled in a dippy cup – now that is special. But no, not for today.  Over easy and ready to be poked during your meal’s first bite in, so that all the yolk runs its course through the glistening abyss surroundings, aka your plate.

POTATOES –  a few roasted up and diced, cubed, and chucked onto the plate will not go astray.  This is a great classic way to use up leftovers (i knew mom that you did this….)

KIPPERS are not my thing but proper English may insist the stereotypical smoked herring gets its place within the morning meal so this is optional – at best.

And finally, do not put ketchup on the table but the ever fantastic brown sauce. HP for those who are not familiar with this British condiment.  I would even say, heck – throw a bit of vinegar on the lazy susan because you know those chips (taters) are dying of a squirt too!

Now, hopefully, mom enjoys Man U and a bit of footie on the telly after this breakfast to die for (or will die for) because these lads and ladies are how it’s done in our house!

Nothing says I love you, mommy, then a heart attack called Breakfast and  by two hands who chuckle as they write this – with love xx[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
