    C40A30BA-FB51-484A-9846-EE843908F371.jpeg First up.....an obvious omission being the lack of black pudding and the split fried egg from my last full English of 2017

    Too many beans... needs some tomatoes... bigger cup of coffee.

    Wine prices are reasonable.

    No black pudding is a winner!

    But, too many beans, needs another sausage and rasher of bacon.

    Other than that, I will score it 5 out of 7.

    Hash browns, home fries or any other potato product that the Americans need to get through to lunch, have no place on an "English Breakfast" plate. Scrape it off and replace with black pudding and I'll forgive the busted egg.

    Seriously - black pudding is high in protein, rich in iron and low in fat (typically 5%).
    It really is a health food, used a bit olive oil spray if you want to keep it lean.

    Bacon - Extra rasher
    Sausage - Replace with Lorne
    Beans - Too much
    Egg - Extra fried

    Lose the mushrooms
    Lose the hash browns

    Replace with a slice of black pudding, haggis, tomato and a tattie scone!

    Right. I don't eat eggs so that's not the breakfast's fault. However there was not only no option of black pudding but no option of bleeding beans either. Or anything else for that matter.

    I detest grilled tomatoes, so subbed them for an extra hash brown.

    I like it uncooked too, as a snack straight from the fridge.

    That's dryer than the Atacama desert.

    I would remove the tom decoration and either replace with tin toms or small sweet toms.
    Add small amount of beans
    Take mushrooms off and replace with black pudding
    Sausages look like squirters and need replacing with chipolatas and tbh it looks about right size for a starter :p

    Excellent, well-rounded critique.

    Extra points for the Atacama ;):p

    My first thought was regarding, one sausage and one piece of bacon. It's like an army breakfast.

    I’m one of those people that doesn’t want beans all over my plate. I want proper tomato sauce with my breakfast not disgusting bean sauce.

    I’ll eat baked beans but on my own terms or not at all. :laugh:
