An English Fry Up with a Kiss of California #NationalHotBreakfastMonth #SundayFunday

Updated: Feb 26

This week the Sunday Funday bloggers are sharing hot breakfast recipes. Stacy of Food Lust People Love is hosting. She wrote: "February is National Hot Breakfast Month. You've got most of the month left to make it count! Share a recipe you've made this month or one for your favorite hot breakfast dish."



Stacy of Food Lust People Love, Sue of Palatable Pastime, Rebekah of Making Miracles, and Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm coordinate this low-stress group; we only participate when we are inspired. I already mentioned that Stacy is hosting this week. Here's our line-up of hot breakfasts...



Other Favorite Hot Breakfasts

I still am not really sure what designates something as a 'hot breakfast.' Do baked goods count? Pain au Chocolat is a favorite as are Laminated Bacon Biscuits, but somehow those didn't really seem 'hot.' I figured these were closer: Oven-Cooked Fries with Scrambled Eggs, Eggs Florentine, and Crêpes.



I decided to try something new-to-me...and joked with Jake that this was the food of his people.


An English Fry Up with a Kiss of California

An English Fry Up is traditionally fried eggs, sausages, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms, and bread with baked beans. There are many regional variations of this staple, such as the Ulster Fry that has Irish soda bread; the Scottish Fry that features a tattie scone made with potatoes and a slice of haggis; the Welsh Fry is served with barra lawr, a seaweed-based edible; and the Cornish Fry comes with Cornish hogs pudding.



I couldn't bring myself to fry everything, so I toasted the bread. Also tomatoes aren't in season, so I swapped in local artichokes and my homemade (so, California) sourdough. And, because I served this as Brinner - breakfast for dinner - I poured a beer from Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery.


Ingredients



Procedure


I usually cook my bacon in the oven and poach my eggs, but in the spirit of the English fry Up, I pan-fried the bacon, sausages, and the eggs!


To serve, place everything on together on a platter.



That's a wrap on my Hot Breakfast offering for #SundayFunday. We will be back next week with posts on Irish breakfasts. Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm is hosting. Stay tuned!

That is the perfect English Breakfast, being in Ireland my husband loves this and whenever we are out, he makes it a point to eat it. Perfectly done, will be making soon.

Love brinner (although it's 5 o'clock somewhere)! Very nice lighting in the first photo with the flowers.

Now this is a breakfast...with lots of options. I'm headed to Scotland this year...so perhaps a Scottish fry is in order! Sounds like a pretty great way to start off the day!

Love, love, love the addition of the artichoke! I think that qualifies as part of the California as well!

I know you aren't crazy up Fry Ups but we love bacon and "dippy eggs" in the morning. I would love to have some of your sourdough to toast up for the dipping.
