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.

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.

Healthy Full English Breakfast Recipe makes a fantastic breakfast-for-dinner meal and can be made in 20 minutes!


  • 28 oz. can of baked beans
  • 9 oz. breakfast sausage (about 12 links)
  • 8 oz. sliced white mushrooms
  • 4 small or roma tomatoes
  • 68 slices bread
  • 68 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, divided + more for toast


  1. Heat beans on the stove in a small pot over low heat. Keep warm until it’s time to eat.
  2. Wash tomatoes and cut in half. Roughly chop mushrooms.First batch of pans:
    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. Remove mushrooms from pan and keep warm in the microwave. Wipe out pan with paper towel.Pan two: While mushrooms are cooking, heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add sausages to pan. Cook as directed on package instructions. Remove sausages and keep warm in the microwave.

    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!

    I am from England so I loved seeing this! One very important thing to note with a full English is that American baked beans and British baked beans are very different. Proper baked beans for a full English are Heinz beans in a tomato sauce, more savory than the sweet American baked beans. They come in a turquoise colored tin and I get them from my regular grocery store!

    • Emily

      Oh I’m so happy to now know this! I have to check my local store to see if I can find the British Baked Beans. Do you like that version better?

  2. Kyle

    I wasn’t even aware America had a different type of tinned beans in sauce, Heinz are good, for the unhealthy and original version some bacon and fried slice along with black pudding if you can stomach it. Your version definitely is healthier though…

    • Emily

      Yes, but we call them baked beans. I would definitely add bacon to my english breakfast! Black pudding I’m not sure. HA

  3. Clive Pritchard

    Ate you trying to start a war here? The Full English has english back bacon with it in some regions black (blood) pudding too. You may also see fried left over potatoes but hash brown is a decent substitute

    Full English Breakfast:
    Black Pudding is a must
    Fried Eggs
    Smoked Bacon (definitely not that european streaky thin stripe shite)
    Hash Brown
    Baked Beans (traditionally Heinz but i’m afraid since lowering salt content flavour has gone so use HP or Crosse and Blackwell)
    Tinned Tomatoes or Fried Tomatoes
    Toast with butter
