Brtish Breakfast also called The Full Monty OR The Fry Up

This will also be our goodbye to Bill and Andy who are moving to Ca .Im so sad but happy for them.

This is even better then the brunch .I will have every thing ready to serve all you need to do is have your $10.00 pre paid .Here is what I will be serving coffee tea,orange juice and tomato juice.You want Minosa bring your own Bubbly  

Breakfast. The Full English. The Full Monty. A fry-up. Call it what you want, but there are few nations in this world that do breakfast better than the British. Digging into a piping hot fry up is a is an experience that can set you right no matter what situation you may have gotten yourself into. What is included in your fry-up is a matter of taste, as well as region. The following is a breakdown of the fry-up, and the components that are (in my mind, at least) essential—as well as a group of things that are a welcome addition to the party.


The combination of both bacon and sausage is one of the essential elements to a full fry up. A simple pork sausage (like the banger) is ideal and the type of bacon is up to preference. Streaky bacon (or what you Americans just call bacon) is a common sight in a fry up, but back bacon, made from the cured loin of a pig (and often labeled "Irish Bacon" in the States) makes a lovely meaty counterpart to the fatty sausage it sits alongside.


The inclusion of beans may seem cursory, but they are the element of the plate that anchors the meal. Don't be ashamed to reach for a can of beans—Heinz is the classic. But if you have time on your side, trying out a homemade version of baked beans can make the humble legume shine.


Much like the beans, the tomato may seem like an optional garnish; I assure you, it is not. The sweetness and acidity that come from a cooked tomato goes a long way in cutting the fattiness that is inherent in the rest of the plate. The way you prepare your tomato is once again a matter of taste—a stewed tomato will work, but simply cutting a tomato in half and frying it in leftover bacon fat, then finishing it with a bit of cracked black pepper, is a quick and delicious way to go. Many proper fry ups will come with grilled tomato (that's broiled, for you American English speakers).


Fried bread is just what it sounds like—sliced bread toasted in a pan with butter, lard, or bacon drippings. It is important to not underestimate the amount of fat you will need to get a perfectly crisp piece of fried bread—a couple tablespoons per slice is not unheard of. It's a bit surprising, but absolutely worth it. You only need a slice or two to satisfy the craving; after that, you may find yourself reaching for a plain piece of toast.

THE EGGS Scrambled and Fried 

Lastly, the egg. Normally two, but sometimes three eggs cooked to your preference. The runny yolk to my mind is essential—it's the sauce that brings the whole plate together!—.


Some things that should also be included in the essential section of a fry up guide is a hot strong cup of tea and a bottle of vinegary, brown HP sauce, tomato sauce (aka ketchup), or both some nice marmalade, . And you will always need a few pieces of extra toast.Also English Muffins Toasted .

.Irish Homemade Oat Meal for those who love this ,with brown sugar and raisins.

Andy ,s favorite  I am making it for him.


Mushrooms often come along with a fry up, either roasted in the oven or fried in some butter. Generally you're looking for a white button mushroom cooked whole and seasoned gently to let all of its mushroom flavor come through. Serving mushrooms in a fry up is a nice inclusion because it offers a moment of pause from the sausage and bacon every few bites, but holds true to many of their meaty qualities.


Lastly, the potatoes. Hash, chips, or mashed and fried into a cake—many fry ups include the spud. If you are in the glorious situation of having leftovers from a roast, a few roasted potatoes cut up and fried are wonderful. Or a quick version of bubble and squeak would also be a welcome addition to a fry up.

Fresh Muffins and coffee cake No Fruit sorry

    Breakfast was fantastic. It brought me back to my home in England, sitting at my kitchen table eating the exact same breakfast. Vernalisa, you didn't miss one thing. I loved the bangers, baked beans, tomatoes, potatoes and mushrooms. You really did an amazing job in replicating one of my favorite meals. Special thank you to my friend, Tonya, who cooked my eggs to perfection. Also, thank you Tonya and Donna who did a great job, as always, in cleaning up. You ladies are great! Thanks to Vernalisa and Pepe for all your hard work in making this a memorable event!
