I am a NEW fan of full english breakfasts! Back when we lived in LA, and long before we had kids, we frequented a fancy brunch spot in West Hollywood called Cecconi’s. The people watching is perfection and it’s everything you would expect an LA restaurant to be: beautiful food, beautiful decor, beautiful people. Our good friend Jim loved the spot and would order a full english breakfast every. single. time. we met him there.
It always looked so good, but I always stuck with their avocado toast. And you know that I’ve I’ve already admitted my basic-ness to you guys so I’m not even the tiniest bit ashamed to admit my avocado toast obsession.
Maybe a full english breakfast felt like a tad much for the first meal of the day. But that issue is easily solved and I’m so glad I finally dove in because I’m never looking back.
What Is a Healthy Full English Breakfast Recipe?
Traditionally, a full breakfast includes bacon, sausages, eggs, and a drink like coffee or tea. In England, the Full English breakfast includes bacon, fried, poached, or scrambled eggs, fried or grilled tomatoes, fried mushrooms, toast, and sausages. Traditionally, a large mug of tea is included.
Best Beans for Healthy Full English Breakfast Recipe:
The beans for a full english breakfast are especially important! Thankfully, a kind reader named Claire pointed this out to me. You can read her comment below, but essentially, the traditional baked beans you’ll find in a full english breakfast are more savory and are in a tomato sauce. You can find them at many stores here in the U.S., look for a teal-colored can!
A few weeks ago, I added a healthy full english breakfast recipe as one of the dinners to my easy and healthy meal plan service and everyone (and their families) loved it! It really makes a great breakfast-for-dinner meal, the components all come together easily and all of the nutrition bases (protein, grain, fiber, vegetable, FLAVOR!) are covered.
And if I’m every at Cecconi’s again? Definitely ordering the full english breakfast.

Non-stick pan: In a non-stick pan, melt 1 Tbsp. of butter and add mushrooms to pan. Cook, stirring frequently until mushrooms until tender and golden brown, about 4-5 minutes.

Second batch of pans: **Start making toast while you’re cooking the eggs and tomatoes.
Non-stick pan: Melt remaining butter in pan and cook eggs according to preferences. I did sunny side-up for adults, scrambled for kids. Season eggs with salt and pepper to taste.
Pan two: Using oil from sausages, add tomatoes to hot pan, and cook cut side down for about 2-3 minutes.
- This meal requires a few pans. One small pot for the beans, one non-stick for mushrooms and then eggs, and one other pan for sausages and then tomatoes.
- Get your kids involved! They can: pour the beans in a pan, butter the toast.
- If you don’t love the texture or flavor of cooked tomatoes, leave them raw and serve them on the side!
