Great British Fry Up

    25 mins

    Everyone has their own version - this is the one I make most weekends, especially if there are guests or I've over-indulged with drinks the night before.

    24 people made this

    Serves: 1 

    • 60 ml vegetable oil
    • 28 g pork sausage
    • 29 g frozen hash brown patty
    • 2 thick slices bacon
    • 1 tomato, cut in half
    • 4 mushrooms, sliced
    • 1 egg
    • 1 slice white bread
    • 5 g butter, or as needed

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the sausage. Fry until browned on one side, about 5 minutes. Turn it over to fry on the other side and add the tomato, bacon and mushrooms.
    2. When the tomato, bacon and mushrooms are just about cooked, crack the egg into the centre and allow to cook. You might want to add a little more oil just to crisp the edges. Toast the slice of bread while the egg cooks and then spread butter on it. Serve everything on a plate with the toast on the side.

    Apart from the hash brown, this is pretty accurate. Our fry ups consist of sausage, bacon, tomato (whole canned will do at a push, though fresh is the way to go), mushrooms, egg (scrambled for me, fried for Husband), fried bread, and Heinz baked beans. I top my eggs with Heinz ketchup, and serve with a huge pot of steaming PG Tips. Cheers!  -  29 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    A few things. It's important to use Heinz baked beans in a teal blue can. Also, get back bacon from the butcher if possible instead of strip bacon. I worked in the UK for just over a year and greatly miss three things: an english breakfast, a good gammon ham steak, and a pint of green king abbott ale.  -  22 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious recipe. The British Fry-Up doesn't traditionally include hashbrowns; sometimes it's served with French Fries, but definitely not hashbrowns. In Northern Ireland, it is served with fried potato bread and soda bread. In other parts of the U.K., they use regular fried white bread (you'll need much more vegetable oil if you try this). Many health conscious Britons are now grilling (broiling) as much of this dish as possible, i.e., the sausage, bacon, tomatoes, breads. HP sauce is a must but ketchup is wonderful too.  -  27 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
