Full Irish/English Breakfast (Fry-Up)

This week I am playing tribute to some St. Patrick's Day favorites....

Now if you are looking for a hearty way to start your day a Full Irish or English Breakfast (also known as a Fry-Up) is the way to go.  I remember the first time I had this breakfast as a child at my Uncle's house in the UK.  I fell in love with the fact that they served baked beans for breakfast.  Now I am a big canned pork and bean or baked bean fan since I was a kid, so seeing a way to eat it at breakfast made my day. Sometimes, I just make a fried egg with pork and beans and hot buttered toast for breakfast to bring back those fond memories.  My love for beans at breakfast has even been inherited by my kids because it is one breakfast guaranteed to make them both happy in the morning.  We even love to eat breakfast for dinner sometimes and this is Full Irish/English breakfast/ Fry-Up is the number one request.  So eat like a KING for breakfast... you will definitely enjoy every bite.  Cheers!

Fried egg (any way you like)
Breakfast sausage
Baked beans or Pork and beans
