    Should be Chef tomato ketchup not Heinz.

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,519 ✭✭✭✭Jim_Hodge

    By definition it's not a Full IRISH if you include Cumberland sausage.

    As for having Lucozade with it....enough said.

    Each to their own, proper Irish fry for me is frying steak mushrooms egg bacon x2 pork sausages x3 half a soda 2 potato breads and 1 maybe 2 crumpets and either HP or daddys sauce and black coffee. The meat section has to be from the local butchers and the eggs must be free range. Soda and potato bread from the bakers, crumpets doesn't matter much because the secret to a good fried crumpet/pancake is giving it a slightly over-cooking by 10-20 seconds.

    Egg cold pan cold oil crack the egg and let it get to cooking temp from the hob used for the main ingredients, spoon the oil over the yolk and once it ready for turning flip it over and just give it 30 seconds then off the hob. Pat the lot dry with kitchen towel. Thats more of a full fry saturday dinner, fry breakfast is a full bacon n egg soda.

    +1 on a Cumberland sausage not belonging in an IRISH breakfast.

    (Hint: the clue is in the name).

    It also requires tea or coffee (either are acceptable). Soft drinks DO NOT belong with any fried breakfast.

    I'd also add fried or grilled mushrooms, and some hash browns for personal preference.

    Jumbo sausages, white puddings, hash browns, bachelor baked beans, fried onions, fried mushrooms, fried tomatoes, chef ketchup, toast, tea, and orange juice 🥰 for a breakfast roll it's sausages, white puddings and hash browns with ketchup, tea and OJ with pulp which I had this morning 🥰 rashers are too much work trying to take the fat off them and I know you can get lean rashers but I'm just not that bothered

    2 x black puddings, 2 x white.

    Fried tomatoes (not a fan of them myself, but I know some are)

    FUCK yer lucozade - hot steaming mug of tea, splash of milk, one sugar.

    I remeber Bewley's used to substtiute items - if you didn't want something, they'd give you an extra of something else.

    Everything I don't like is either woke or fascist - possibly both - pick one.

    There's something about if there's beans it becomes an English breakfast?

    In any case I like beans with the breakfast.

  • Registered Users Posts: 24,924 ✭✭✭✭Strumms

    Jumbo sausages from my local butcher x 2

    black pudding x1

    white pudding x1

    rashers x2

    toast x2

    small portion of beans

    Portion of fried mushrooms

    hash browns / potato waffles x2

    i could go for this right now…. It be dinner time… I can’t recall if I have sausages left though….I ‘think’ I might have… wait, I’ll be back… 😋

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,069 ✭✭✭bigroad

    Kearns sausages,bacon,black pudding,mushrooms,fry eggs,pork chop with a few chips,toast with plenty of butter, tomatoes,chef brown sauce.

    Orange juice to start with a pot of strong finish.

    And a large cream donut for afters.

  • Registered Users Posts: 277 ✭✭Guildenstern

    Every country has this as their own. Here, it is the full Irish, in Belfast, the Ulster Fry. In London, they gave me the full English.

    Are their regional differences or is it basically the same everywhere?

    I think it's really down to personal choice.

    But a Full English must have lashings and lashings of beans.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,625 ✭✭✭Eoinbmw

    Im offended by Heinz baked beans!

    Bachelors have some flavour at least!

  • Registered Users Posts: 20,414 ✭✭✭✭kneemos

    Beans are for an evening fry. Not right for breakfast.

    They're just a cheap filler anyway.

  • Posts: 0 [Deleted User]

    Beans are fücking rank and have no place in a fry.

  • Registered Users Posts: 12,203 ✭✭✭✭blade1

    Unless any of those mentioned come with a shītload of chips I'd need 2 to keep me going

    You wouldn't think it to look at me but I've a savage appetite.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,696 ✭✭✭nachouser

    If you're having jam and lucozade with your fry, I'd say your next meal is probably heroin.

  • Registered Users Posts: 16,377 ✭✭✭✭Galwayguy35

    Thats a very unhealthy breakfast.

  • Posts: 0 [Deleted User]

    is it a fried breakfast if the items are in a baguette?

    cos lad in fairness a cold lucozade with a breakfast roll is pure daycent

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,388 ✭✭✭Riddle101

    Nothing beats a good cup of tea or coffee after a nice fry. Not sure about Lucozade though.

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,699 ✭✭✭StupidLikeAFox

    Don't forget the large glass of gaviscon on the side

    Are Heinz baked beans English? For an Irish breakfast? How about Batchelors for authenticity?

  • Registered Users Posts: 16,157 ✭✭✭✭Grayson

    I hate beans, mushrooms and fried eggs. So I have the eggs scrambled and have a plate full of meat :)

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,651 ✭✭✭✭Furze99

    I thought a big mug of strong tay would be de rigeur?

    Oh and carry a few stents in the wallet.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,721 ✭✭✭Large bottle small glass

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,848 ✭✭✭randd1

    Rashers, 3 sausages, black pudding, white pudding, fried egg, fried tomato, sautéed mushrooms, a few toast, real butter, scrambled egg or beans on the side as an extra (I go for the scrambled egg). Orange juice or milk to wash it down.

    You'd be sorted for the day.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,332 ✭✭✭beachhead

    Clonakilty anything - disgusting rubbish.If,needing jam on toast then not eating enough meat.Cumberland recipe not Irish

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,584 ✭✭✭✭EmmetSpiceland

    Never understood the need to pepper a breakfast fry plate with fruit & veg or, even, childish ketchup.

    Should be all about the meat, and eggs, with a bit of brown sauce.

    Yes, a thousand times. Heinz is muck. Wouldn’t touch their ketchup or beans. Bachelors every time.
