    Cooked Breakfast

    Just had a reunion of ex colleagues and as expected a cooked breakfast was on offer, just as it always was wherever we were.

    But how many folk nowadays have one either daily, weekly, monthly etc???

    We all said we no longer do but sometimes it was the last Ďrealí we had for a good while.

    Usually when I stay away for work, with varying results. I get fed up of it after a couple of days and switch to continental on longer trips.

    If there is black pudding, potato scones or, good lord, haggis on offer then the croissants can quick frankly do one!!
    It's now usually if staying at a hotel or B&B these days as a treat fro me, rarely at home.

    When my mate visits from Surrey, we nip up to Barnard Castle to have a 'big boy's breakfast'. Once in a while though!..... other than that it's porridge with raw milk. 😁

    LOL, I thought it's me.. I usually have it on the first day or two in a hotel just to get the energy in (that's an old one innit) before settling in the cereal/croissant/ham and cheese/fruits routine. Can't remember when last time I cooked it at home..

    Very occasionally, probably a few times per year and usually when staying at a hotel.

    Had this last month...

    It's something that I have to fancy. If I'm having a cooked brekky, I like a local greasy spoon, it's a proper belly buster and sets me up for he day.

    Usually have the full English on short hotel stays as others have said, and always before heading out for a day at the races.

    Just polished off a fried egg on toast at home, which is pretty usual at weekends. During the week I get by on a big coffee and a breakfast biscuit, so never feel guilty about the odd brekkie blowout :)

    In Scotland a tattie scone is a must with a cooked breakfast but beans has always been a no no for me.

    After a really heavy night however I often resort to a Scottish breakfast - 2 paracetamol and a bottle of Irn Bru!!

    Every weekend, but since the girlfriend is veggie, no meat. I donít actually mind (though sheís away this weekend so the sausages n bacon has returned)!

    Iím far too lazy during the week.

    Veggie cooked breakfast every Sunday. Single pan and microwave for the scrambled eggs. Salmon and scrambled eggs on toast once a week midweek. Granola, fruit and Greek style natural yoghurt on the other five days.

    I usually succumb to the irresistible pull of a full English once a month or so, usually combined with an early Saturday morning trip to Lymington and its market.
    Although no trees were harmed during the creation of this post, a large number of electrons were greatly inconvenienced.

    Krusty's on Northgate is fry-up central in our part of the world. Once a week when I'm home.

    Usually on holiday, followed by whatever breakfasts if the world are on offer from dim sum to pastries. Who doesnít need 4,000kcal to start a day of sitting by the pool!

    I stay away with work 1-2 nights each week & actively leave the hotel before 6.30 to avoid the temptation of them. I just know I canít choose the healthy option, so remove the temptation.

    Having a cooked breakfast as tomorrow nights meal & really looking forward to it!

    This. I'm in hotels 3-4 nights a week so have to actively avoid a cooked breakfast each morning. The solution is to plan in a full-English as an evening meal once in a blue moon. Joy.

    Have a lot more business breakfasts than lunches these days. Nothing more disappointing than a so called full English in a fancy place where they give you a tiny pot of beans, one sausage, rasher and a couple of mushrooms and charge £15+ for the pleasure. Every month or so we go to the local greasy spoon and I know I probably wonít need to eat for the rest of the day if I get their Fatboy breakfast with chips, black pudding, bubble the lot.

    I go for one every couple of months at Krazy Horse customs just north of Bury St Edmunds

    Normally only have a full English when staying in a hotel. Other than that itís cereal/porridge/muesli on a weekday and on weekends itís poached smoked haddock and poached eggs with toast from bread that Iíve made in my bread maker. If thereís any left over from in the week, a couple of bits of asparagus on top of each egg. Delish!

    Yup avoidance is the only strategy! Must have been 9-10 months since the last. We are out for dinner tonight but Iím already salivating about the fry up!

    Much as I enjoy sausage, beans, bacon etc. I find it hard to eat this stuff first thing in the morning. If Iím staying in hotels here itís available Iíll eat small portions, but if I eat too much I end up feeling stuffed and uncomfortable for the next 2 hrs. Light breakfast and a big lunch suits me far better.

    Most weekends Saturday and Sunday, but vary it.

    Bacon, sausage eggs (poached, fried, scrambled)

    Toast or fried bread or french toast

    Sometimes add in plum tomatoes or beans

  31. #31
    Only once in a blue moon if Iím travelling in a hotel, and then itís usually scrambled/poached eggs with bacon, toast, tomato and mushrooms. Baked beans are the spawn of Satan and contaminate/flood the plate, only acceptable in a ramekin to avoid sauce overspill.

    At home, being a Scot, love a couple of warm potato scones with fried eggs, occasionally with bacon on the side.

  32. #32
    Absolute minimum of once a week. Iíd have one most days if I could find the time.
    It's just a matter of time...

    My Nan prided herself on the fact that she sent my Grandad off to work every day of his life on a cooked breakfast, rash of bacon, fried egg, tomato and a sliced of fried bread, all cooked in proper lard.

    That said he retired from the bank aged 65 and died of a heart attack 4 years later.

    Iíll have a fry up when I stay in hotels other wise I feel like I havenít had my monies worth. Trouble is at the moment Iím away 2 nights a weeks!

    Great responses. It seems the cooked breakfast is very much alive and kicking. We always talk though about a full Scottish or English. Is there a full Welsh or Irish, and what makes a full Scottish or English for YOU?

    Hmmm - 2 poached eggs (soft yoke), thick (local) bacon, 2 x Richmond sausages (I know), tinned plum tomatoes, Heinz beans, toasted sourdough with Lurpack on. Yorkshire (strong) tea and a splash of HP brown sauce. Occasionally haggis....

    Cook them every day, and frequently snack on the components, but last time I had a full English was at Heathrow about 14 years ago.

    Full Scottish also *needs* potato scones. Some folk also throw in a slice of haggis, but a tad too rich and spicy for me before the sun goes over the yardarm...

    Potato scones, two eggs, soda scone sliced and fried, and three slices of haggis. Wonderful but I've not been able to buy the first two items down here.

    Have one every time I spot all the ingredients in the fridge usually every couple of weeks. Also when travelling, e.g on Wednesday travelling through Lancashire dropped in at my favourite cafe and had a Big Breakfast Barm.
    Very large barm cake, 2 sausage, 2 bacon, 2 eggs, ketchup. Mug of tea. Lovely Jubbly.
