  • Ready In

  1. Lay the bacon slices in a single layer in a large skillet. Fry over medium heat until it begins to get tinged with brown. Fry on both sides. Remove from pan, but save grease.
  2. Melt butter in skillet. Crack eggs into pan, being careful not to break yolks. Place tomato slices, mushrooms, and bread in pan. Fry gently, stirring mushrooms and tomatoes occasionally. Keep everything separate. Turn bread over to brown on both sides.
  3. When egg whites are set, but yolks are still runny, dish half of everything onto each of 2 warmed plates, and serve immediately.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Start your day off the Irish way! You'll never want cold cereal again. To be really authentic, buy back bacon--it's much meatier than the belly bacon Americans eat. And it's absolutely essential that you serve this breakfast with sweet, milky tea.
  • Try one of these recipes for Irish Soda Bread or soda farls to fry up and serve on the side.

I haven't made this but spent quite some time in ireland and this lacks too many items to be an irish breakfast. black (blood pudding) and white pudding, eggs, grilled tomato. it's a good star...

I love this recipe!! I have made it several times before and whenever I want breakfast for dinner irish breakfast is the first thing that pops into my head.

What size skillet does Prue have?

The only thing this needs is some black and white pudding and some potatoes!

What an awesome meal. My husband & I had it for dinner and we love it. It's unique in that it includes veggies, which American breakfasts almost never do. Quick & easy too!

For a truely authentic experience you'd need to find some black or white pudding, and for a truely magnificent hangover cure add baked beans and lashings of tea and toast.
