Not a BREXIT thread but have we discussed what constitutes a "full English breakfast"? I saw this £19 Gordon Ramsey effort https://twitter.com/GordonRamsay/status/1305055230997004290?s=20 and was quite shocked knowing Ramsey is supposed to be some sort of perfectionist, I can get better in my local cafe for half the price.

Hmmm. If that's a gravy boat of baked beans on the left of the picture, the potty-mouthed, weave-wearing, football-reject saves his bottoxed boat a little. In my book, an english doesn't cut it without beans. I'd always be disappointed if the toast is not on the plate too. Plenty of bacon though.

No Black Pudding?
Where's the Fried Bread?
Where's the Brown Sauce? (Not HP, that's made in Euroscumland)

At least there aren't any Hash Browns. Hash Browns have no place in an ENGLISH breakfast, they belong with the Merkin scum's breakfast.

With my healthier eating regime nowadays, this would be what I would like as an English breakfast;

Grilled bacon
Hash browns
Mushrooms 
Beans
Tomatoes
Poached or scrambled eggs
Toast (wholemeal or seeded brown)

Looks like a kid's portion.

Full English breakfasts have their place, as long as there's no tomatoes of any kind.

I prefer omelettes meself.  They do them with 5 eggs in the US of States!  Best breakfast EVAH!!  :D

That would be for a full Scottish ;)
Happily had the Haggis with brekkers last time I was in Embra.

And to young Matt2112, I don't like grilled tomatoes in a breakfast, but accept them for being an essential part. Sooner have tinned ones.

Grilled, fresh tomato = acceptable
Tinned tomatoes = yuk! (I always swap out for beans if that is an option)

5-egg US omelettes? From chickens that wash in chlorine? 😁😉

Ramsay has rightly copped some stick for this...

A full English should contain enough stuff to fill up on for at least 6-8 hours...I'd be hungry after 2 - 3 on this.

Mind you, would need some 'square' (lorne) sausage as well  :)

On reflection, yes, agreed about tomatoes there on both counts.

There was this place in Lancaster, California, at the gateway to the Mojave Desert, where I had those omelettes - it gets so hot there they could have made them using a pan on a table in the back yard.

This is the only full Scottish ,and it's a lot better for you than an artery clogging fry up ,plus it also has the benefit of a good clearout later on  ;) and none of yer southern rubbish wi sugar added ,either with salt or not I personally have it without salt ..

That's my winter post cycling supper is that. No sugar either - Golden Syrup :)

Tend to go Canadian with a bit of maple syrup and a few berries when I go the porridge route.
