This is the version I make most weekends, especially if there are guests or I've over-indulged with drinks the night before. You can leave out anything you don't have and can include other ingredients such as, black pudding, baked beans (the Heinz UK version) or even scrambled eggs.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the sausage and hash brown. Fry until browned on one side, about 5 minutes. Turn them over to fry on the other side and add the tomato, bacon and mushrooms. The idea is to start cooking with the things that take the longest.

  • When the tomato, bacon and mushrooms are just about cooked, crack the egg into the center 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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

Very accurate rendition of a British Fry Up! The hash browns are "chips" or french fries here in Yorkshire and since in the US you don't have the Heinze version of baked beans use pork-n-beans. What is missing is "Brown Sauce" the closest thing in the states would probably be a store brand of A-1 to dip the sausage bacon eggs and potato in...lovely! Read More

Just like I remember after living in Yorkshire for 10 years!! However I have never been able to find a good substitute for Lincolnshire sausage (my favorite!!!) on this side of the pond!!!! Fried bread is a must and I'm fortunate enough to be able to get Heinz baked beans and HP Sauce here!! Read More

Rated it 4 because I changed it a bit. Instead of using oil I just cooked everything in the bacon grease. Also the second time I didnt cook the tomato because I think it was better fresh. Instead of hashbrowns I made potatoes from this site. It's chopped red potatoes and onions cooked in a skillet with butter. That's it. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Fairly accurate UK recipe. Leave out the hash browns. Add lamb or veal kidney fried bread and baked beans. I prefer a Portobella mushroom. Read More
