COOK'S NOTES FOR FULL ENGLISH BREAKFAST

There is no definition of a full English Breakfast although our recipe below is a good starting point. Clearly if you don't like a particular ingredient then leave it out, and if there is a particular ingredient you like then add it at the correct time.

The complication with a full English Breakfast is that the ingredients are not combined, they need to be cooked separately. Different ingredients also require different cooking times and all this combines to a meal which is difficult to get right. But our time line recipe, starting at 20 minutes to go, makes this recipe as easy as as it can get.

Just prove that it can all be done in around twenty minutes, we made a one-take video of the full breakfast being cooked. Have a look at it, not for its professional photography or presentation (which are sadly lacking!), but because it may well give you some ideas.

At the end of this recipe we go through all the ingredients in more detail including cooking times with hints and tips.
