Are we talking a good cafe fry up, or a traditional English breakfast? Because I think the latter involves (urp) kidneys in some way.

Deviled, I think.

And, like, kippers or anchovy sweeties or something.

Why couldn't I have fallen in love with an Italian or a Mexican or summat?

We had better quit this thread because I've put on 30 pounds just reading it. ;D

I think "Full English breakfast" is one of those terms which doesn't really have an absolute definition, since it can mean slightly different things to different people, and quite probably with regional variations thrown in as well.

I've always thought of black pudding as a northern thing, and certainly wouldn't assume it to be part of a full English breakfast where I came from.  The good old British "banger," however, definitely has to be included!

I'd say that most people would expect a minimum of bacon, sausage, egg, tomatoes, and fried bread.

Well I had a good ole American breakfast/brunch this morning - of homemade American-style pancakes with butter & syrup (Lyle's maple-flavoured golden syrup) and British bacon - dipped in the syrup.  I haven't made that for myself since I moved over here.  DH hates American-style pancakes so it's just for me.  ;D  Now my face feels greasy & I feel a little sick, but it was sure good when I was having it!  :P

A 'Full English' will make me feel sick too, but it's a treat once in awhile usually when we are traveling & staying in a B&B somewhere.

Bacon, egg, mushrooms, tomartoos, black pudin and fried bread.
Re. The potatoes. The shredded ones. I end up in the bathroom shortly after eating them because they are not fully cooked and I guess the acid in the raw potatoes due a battle in the intestines. Thank you Dennys. :(

No, it wasn't the potatoes themselves. It's the way Denny's cooks them in lard on a dirty griddle!
