"This is the version I make most weekends, especially if there are guests or I've over-indulged with drinks the night before. You can leave out anything you don't have and can include other ingredients such as, black pudding, baked beans (the Heinz UK version) or even scrambled eggs." — Cate83

frozen hash brown patty
2 thick slices
tomato, cut in half
butter, or as needed
Apart from the hash brown, this is pretty accurate. Our fry ups consist of sausage, bacon, tomato (whole canned will do at a push, though fresh is the way to go), mushrooms, egg (scrambled for me, fried for Husband), fried bread, and Heinz baked beans. I top my eggs with Heinz ketchup, and serve with a huge pot of steaming PG Tips. Cheers!
Leave out the hash browns. Fry the bread in the bacon grease. Add black pudding or kidneys. Now your talking !
A few things. It's important to use Heinz baked beans in a teal blue can. Also, get back bacon from the butcher if possible instead of strip bacon. I worked in the UK for just over a year and greatly miss three things: an english breakfast, a good gammon ham steak, and a pint of green king abbott ale.
Delicious recipe. The British Fry-Up doesn't traditionally include hashbrowns; sometimes it's served with French Fries, but definitely not hashbrowns. In Northern Ireland, it is served with fried potato bread and soda bread. In other parts of the U.K., they use regular fried white bread (you'll need much more vegetable oil if you try this). Many health conscious Britons are now grilling (broiling) as much of this dish as possible, i.e., the sausage, bacon, tomatoes, breads. HP sauce is a must but ketchup is wonderful too.
Just like I remember after living in Yorkshire for 10 years!! However, I have never been able to find a good substitute for Lincolnshire sausage (my favorite!!!) on this side of the pond!!!! Fried bread is a must and I'm fortunate enough to be able to get Heinz baked beans and HP Sauce here!!
Very accurate rendition of a British Fry Up! The hash browns are "chips" or french fries here in Yorkshire, and since in the US you don't have the Heinze version of baked beans, use pork-n-beans. What is missing is "Brown Sauce", the closest thing in the states would probably be a store brand of A-1 to dip the sausage, bacon, eggs and potato in...lovely!
Rated it 4* because I changed it a bit. Instead of using oil, I just cooked everything in the bacon grease. Also, the second time I didnt cook the tomato, because I think it was better fresh. Instead of hashbrowns I made potatoes from this site. It's chopped red potatoes and onions cooked in a skillet with butter. That's it. Thanks for the recipe!
mmmMmm good! I left out black pudding...if my boyfriend wants it..he can cook it! lol. Great brekky, ty for sharing:)
