British Classic – Sunday Best… Full English Breakfast

Sunday morning, coffee in bed with Hubby and Andrew Marr (a Sunday morning political commentary programme for those not from U.K.) 😉


As we have a full house, and ‘the smalls’ (what I have always called my kids) were out partying last night, so a full English is needed. This is more of a brunch as by the time the smalls have risen is nearly lunch time 🙄


It is generally called a ‘fry up’, but I prefer to use the oven to cook most of the component parts, Hubby does love a fried egg though 😊


A Full English varies not only regionally, but from house to house it’s about what you like.



We like good quality Sausages, bacon, free range eggs, mushrooms as a base selection, then maybe black pudding a choice of tinned plum tomatoes or baked beans with toast or fried bread – the kids like hash browns, but they are a new fangled addition 🤣


This meal is eaten with vast quantities of tea or coffee, Orange juice and in depth discussion about the previous night’s events 😊


To some this may look like a heart attack on a plate, but like with anything good in life, all in moderation 😇


For supper, jacket potatoes are available with various toppings for those that want/need them.


Enjoy your Sunday all x

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
