English Breakfasts

Earlier this week I was looking through some pictures from a trip to England, and found some pictures of English breakfasts.bacon, eggs, potatoes, beans, full english breakfast A typical full English breakfast will have back bacon, eggs, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms, potatoes, baked beans, black pudding, sausage and toast.

Of course there is always some variation in what is served.

This was from a pretty nice hotel, so there was a bit more care in the plating.

In most places I have been, the potatoes in a full English breakfast are hash browns.

Not shown in any of the pictures in the post is the toast that is served on the side. Typically the toast is eaten at the end of the meal.

The full English breakfast is definitely different than the Continental breakfast you see in much of Europe.
