The breakfast that can be a lunch. Or a Brunch. The English Breakfast.

an English breakfast can certainly be enjoyed as brunch. In fact, it is quite common to have a late and leisurely breakfast that extends into the mid-morning or early afternoon, which is essentially brunch. They sure know how to do this thing right!

This is what you need (if it was not obvious) 


  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 4 pork sausages
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 can of baked beans
  • 2 tomatoes, halved
  • 8 button mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 slices of black pudding (optional)
  • 4 slices of bread
  • Butter or oil for cooking
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Here is how to make it: 


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F).
  2. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and cook the bacon until crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. In the same pan, cook the sausages until browned and cooked through. Remove and set aside.
  4. Drain the excess fat from the pan and add the mushrooms. Cook until softened and lightly browned. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  5. Place the halved tomatoes on a baking tray, cut side up. Drizzle with a little oil and season with salt and pepper. Place in the preheated oven and roast for about 15 minutes or until softened.
  6. In a small saucepan, heat the baked beans over low heat until heated through.
  7. In a separate frying pan, melt a little butter or heat some oil over medium heat. Crack the eggs into the pan and cook to your desired doneness (fried, poached, or scrambled).
  8. While the eggs are cooking, toast the bread slices and spread with butter if desired.
  9. If using black pudding, fry or grill the slices until heated through.
  10. Arrange all the cooked components on a plate, including the bacon, sausages, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, black pudding, baked beans, and toast.
  11. Serve the English breakfast hot and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy your hearty and traditional English breakfast!
