Let’s make a full English Breakfast! This hearty spread, also called a British breakfast or a fry up, consists of breakfast staples and a few interesting components!


Units Scale
  • 8 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 15 oz. can of Heinz beans in tomato sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, divided
  • 8 oz. sliced white mushrooms (baby bella)
  • 8 oz. breakfast sausage (about 12 links)
  • 4 small or roma tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 slices toast


  1. Cook bacon. Add bacon to cold pan and cook over medium heat, flipping frequently, until fully cooked. Drain on a plate lined with paper towel. 
  2. Heat beans on the stove in a small pot over low heat. Keep warm until it’s time to eat.

    First batch of pans. (You need two non-stick skillets) 

  3. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat in a large non-stick skillet and add mushrooms to pan. Season with sea salt and black pepper and cook, stirring frequently until mushrooms until tender and golden brown, about 4-7 minutes. Remove mushrooms from pan and keep warm in the microwave. Wipe out the pan with a paper towel.
  4. While mushrooms are cooking, add sausages to a second non-stick skillet and cook according to package instructions. Remove sausages and keep warm in the microwave. (Save oil in skillet!)

    Second batch of pans. 

  5. Start toasting bread while you’re cooking the eggs and tomatoes.
  6. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon of butter in the large non-stick skillet and cook eggs according to preferences. Season eggs with salt and pepper to taste. (I did sunny side-up for adults, scrambled for kids.)
  7. Heat sausage skillet over medium heat and sprinkle cut side of tomatoes with sea salt. Add tomatoes, cut side down, to skillet and cook for about 4-5 minutes, until softened and lightly charred. 


  • If you don’t love the texture or flavor of cooked tomatoes, leave them raw and serve them on the side!
