About this recipe: 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.
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)
