the English breakfast

I cannot NOT pass along this rhapsodic paragraph from a BBC article about the wonders/marvels/ecstasies of the English breakfast:
The English breakfast is a cholesterol-laden calorie bomb usually consisting of two eggs, sausage, bacon, baked beans, fried tomato and toast. It’s a symphony of deliciousness on a plate, enough to ward off the worst hangover and fill you up until dinnertime. Indulge in it as often as [Somerset] Maugham suggested and it could take years off your life. But devotees insist you can’t find a better breakfast anywhere.


  1. Coming from the south, i never understood baked beans. From England to New England, it's a bean policy i consider a culinary abomination. Supposed to be peppers, onions, a hamhock, that's what beans are supposed to be.

  2. Bean exhaust can power half of England's windmills, notwithstanding.

  3. A mere half????
    More beans for Brits, say I!
