They don't really do "proper" brown beans over there, but I like brown beans w/anything!
You can keep the fried bread ..& they shud stick to what they know...forget trying to serve coffee in Blighty, it's a losing proposition. Stick to tea!
I like mushrooms at any time (unless they are canned). So now I can say I've had "a proper English Breakfast"...but methinks I could improve on it a might!

It wasn't a 'Full English Breakfast' without Kippers.

OMG! You cannot tell me the average Brit eats this every morning? How has the island of England not sank from the collective weight?

Yup, Brits like three square meals a day plus a bit of supper.

If it not served with potatoes, it is not a real meal.

My favourite breakfast potato is to shred them, let them sit in cold water for 10-15 minutes, rinse, squeeze then plop in the hot frying pan loaded with the drippings from bacon and sausage. Once they are done I put the mushrooms, tomatoes then eggs... Sunnyside up. Served with Heinz British style beans and buttered toast. HP on the meat.

It may be blasfamy, but sometimes I'll substitute the potatoes with fried perogies. We have a butcher (English) that still makes blood sausage. Probably two or three times a year, I'll make a big batch of home made baked beans. Salt pork. It freezes well so I usually have some on hand... but I do use canned beans. I'm not a huge fan of Bush's beans. Prefer Heinz or Libby's. Sorry, Hoadie!
