Full English Breakfast (Fry Up) | LEARN BRITISH CULTURE | BRITISH FOOD


Good morning, are you hungry?
Good because I’m about to rustle up some breakfast
and as I’m ENGLISH it will be a full English breakfast. A full English
breakfast sometimes simply called a full English is a hot meal, it has been cooked
and usually we cook it in the frying pan so some people will refer to it as a fry
up. A fry up. Do you fancy a fry up? Now this is breakfast and breakfast is of
course served in the morning but do not be surprised if you see a full English
breakfast on the menu in a cafe or in a pub but it would usually be called an
all-day breakfast but it consists of the same items. Now before I start cooking
let me serve you up a little tidbit. If you really enjoy learning about culture,
if while you’re learning language you want to have that human connection then
I can definitely recommend today’s sponsors italki. italki allow you
to have a human connection because you can connect with teachers all over the
world at any time of the day or night simply by using a device connected to
the internet so it’s really convenient and as they work with native teachers
you will be getting a real flavor of the real language of how it’s really spoken
and to spice things up if you click on the link in the description box below
then you will get ten dollars in credits when you make your first purchase. So you
make the first purchase and then you’ll get $10 credit as long as you followed
that link down below and ten dollars will get you a lesson
so you’re basically buying one lesson and getting one for free. Right I’m
hungry. Firstly the ingredients. No full
English breakfast is complete without bacon. These are these are called bacon
rashers, so they might ask you how many rashes you would like on your breakfast.
Normally you get one or two. Bacon is normally cooked in one of two ways it’s
either fried in a frying pan with a little oil or you can grill it under the
grill. Then we have eggs. On a full English breakfast the egg is
typically fried however there are many other options to choose from. You could
go for a boiled egg, which is where the egg is put in its shell in boiling hot
water until the insides are firm. If you opt for a soft-boiled egg then it’ll
mean the yolk, the golden section, is still loose, but if you opt for a
hard-boiled egg you boil it for a little longer until the inside is firm…but
that’s no good for dunking. Alternatively you could opt for a poached egg. I
personally cannot poach an egg, it’s quite difficult, it’s where you remove
the shell but still manage to keep the egg altogether and you cook it like a
boiled egg just without the shell. It’s very difficult. Or you can opt for
scrambled egg. Scrambled egg is where you mix the egg with milk. You stir it all
together you put it into a hot pan and then you keep stirring until it starts
to cook and becomes lumpy and fluffy and delicious. How do you like your eggs?
Fried, boiled poached or scrambled? Next up we have sausages.
Whoops. Pork sausages which can be cooked in the frying pan or under the grill
or in the oven even although I think that takes longer. Then we have something
called black pudding. Now despite the name this isn’t sweet,
this is a savoury cut of what looks like a sausage but it’s made of congealed
pig’s blood, hmm. You would cook this in the frying pan for around six to eight
minutes. You’ll also find on the plate mushrooms
and tomatoes, as far as I know you fry the mushrooms and you bake or grill the
tomato. A firm favourite with many are the baked beans. One of the biggest
brands in the UK is Heinz baked beans. Now this is a sweet little addition to
the breakfast plate. This obviously can be cooked in a pan or warmed in the
microwave. And to finish it off you’d have a couple of slices of toast, these
are referred to as rounds of toast I don’t know why.
So one slice is one round, two slices two rounds. How many rounds of toast do you
like? And the toast of course is normally made in the toaster but if you don’t
have a toaster then it could be toasted under the grill. Oh hang on before you
start eating there’s just one more thing that will complete the breakfast and
that’s a cup of English tea. It’s a great way to start the day. Perfect, now I hope you’ve enjoyed
learning about the traditional English breakfast I’d love to know what your
traditional breakfast is or if you have a full English do you do anything
different? Let me know in the comments below. If you did enjoy this then please
do give it a thumb up, don’t forget about the wonderful offer with italki and
if you do take a lesson with them or if you have in the past then please let me
know your experiences down in the comment section below. Until next time
enjoy your breakfast

  1. Our breakfast 🍳 in Algeria is similar to the French one…. We have always cup of coffee and milk within cake or croissant. Or some just drink juice or have yoghurt… But most of Algerians take coffee ☕ milk in the very morning 🌞 happy to share my traditional breakfast 🍳

  2. Hi my Anna…first i say thank u for lessons….second…can you plsease do a alesson about 504 Essential Words for tofel…thank u so much

  3. In this part of the US breakfast can be a stack of pancakes (First served to lumber jacks and other workers as an inexpensive, filling meal to stick to your ribs).

    But the most popular is eggs, meat {bacon, ham and either sausage links or patties}(US bacon is nothing like UK bacon. Our is much fattier), fried potatoes (sometimes with gravy), toast and juice (orange, tomato, grapefruit or V-8) and/or coffee.

    In the south it is much the same but it may be grits. Grits is a sort of porridge severed with butter or sometimes gravy.

  4. My cute Anna …. you look Fantastic like usuallll , always shining , with that big sweet cute smile , you just made youtube a better place .

  5. Hi,I come from Bangladesh.Oue traditional breakfast- parata(oil bread),egg,any curry spicy😍& cup of tea with extra suger😃

  6. I have totally different breakfast from U…usually we have pratha with butter + any curry or omeltte and a cup of tea….

  7. Hello, dear Anna and thank you for your wonderful work. Could I ask a favour of you? Well, here is my question: I would be grateful if you could explain to me (and to all of us) the difference and the use of IF, AS and When, and of course with some examples. I thank you in advance for your kindness – Du bist ein Schatz!

  8. Thanks for all videos and the subject of traditionnel breakfast is interesting ! I see the English breakfast is salty and very different our breakfast in France. My breakfast is a cup of cereal with hazelnut milk and a glass of orange juice 🙂 Bye !

  9. In France, the breakfeast is coffee with crispy baguette and butter or jam, sometines we go to search croissant at the bakery near the home.

  10. Very interesting! I just might eat some of those when I go to England! Now, I'm kind of astonished, though! Brits and Americans, as well as part of Europe, take such breakfast! That would be more like a lunch or dinner according to my diet habits! I remembered being in a German-theme restaurant and ordered some "German" sausages with fries. And it remained of these American-British breakfasts. OmG, it was an enormous dish!

    But I like it how food traditions and habits vary from place to place.

    Here in Argentina, for example, or, at least, in the zone where I live, we tend to have something called "chocolatada" which is milk with cacao and sugar, or maybe tea, coffee, our famous "mate", etc, along with cookies, or croissants or something sweet. Less often something salad, such as sandwiches. But it is valid.

    Awesome video as always!

  11. In Egypt we also eat beans and falafel and we fry eggs with something like bacon and we fry tomatos as well with eggs and onion

  12. Damn it, thats so delicious!!! English breakfast is the only real breakfast a man needs. When i was in britain we got those everyday, a reason to move to great britana 🙂

  13. Hi it was really interesting video :)I am interested in English culture and English language so it was helpful 🙂 I come from Poland and I like eating sandwiches with cottage cheese , boiled egg , tomato and pepper + a mug of cocoa for breakfast. I sometimes eat cereal or sausages, . Have a good day 😀

  14. A wonderful video! I've heard the term "Full English" tossed around, but never really figured out what-all went into it.
    5:14 – as a side-note, I prepare my toast in a frying pan. I lay down a little butter and put my rounds of toast in there. That's frequently how I've seen toast done in American diners on the "flat-top", and it works nicely.

  15. its pretty much the same here in India minus the bacon bit. toast butter, eggs poached, omelette, scrambled, fried ( single, double!) , boiled.Milk Tea. ( baked beans and bacon usually at a buffet, a restaurant, or if you are really hooked on to it.
    But that's not it, as variations we can have umpteenth options: porridge, cornflakes and milk, muesli, idli sambhar, dosa, appam ( south india), parathas and veg, even roti and veg!

    I personally go for brown bread, cheese slices or spread, tea , coffee or juice. Alternatively scrambled eggs , mayonnaise, jam peanut butter et al

    yeah but nothing like a full English breakfast!

  16. OMG British Food…Britain would you please stop practicing corporal punishment??? In your school and at home? It would be nice…come on…:-D

  17. Hi Anna.I would try it! 👍It looks tasteful. I love eating for breakfast the scrambled egg with ham! That's served in my country, Montenegro! One of the ways! 🙂

  18. Substitute the toast for fried bread or have both. The breakfast must be cooked in Beef fat (dripping) to enhance the flavour. Thank you for not including Hash Browns. The fried bread gave the carbohydrate element.

  19. Im a brit and stumbled upon this. Really well done Anna, if your not a teacher you might want to consider it. Really professionally done. Great comments section too

  20. Best breakfast in the world. As an Englishman I couldn't think of anything better for a decent meal. Top tip, Morrisons do an all day breakfast which is nothing fancy but it's pretty genuine. It's my Sunday morning treat.

  21. English breakfast seems to be delicius 😋 but it would be better with a big cup of black coffee instead of tea 👍

  22. Baked beans are not part of a full English. It's an Americanism, it's a sad influence on our breakfast and should be banned

  23. to poach an egg add a little vinegar to the water first it helps to coagulate the white of the egg. when the water comes up to the boil stir so the water forms a vortex  then add the egg. Simmer until done. Use VERY fresh eggs not older ones.  Since pudding is a word that refers to a food boiled  in a cloth or a skin  things like  black pudding and even the haggis ( great chieftain of the pudding race)  are actually puddings.

  24. Anna is very talented. I have visited all of her four channels. And also subscribed all of them. She is a good singer with an adventurous spirit, a very good teacher and now seeing, she is also good at cooking! Hey, Anna keep it up and I watch your videos every day just to see you at least one time in a day. I want you to always smile like that forever 💓💓

  25. In my lessons, when talking about food and countable and uncountable nouns, I always dedicate part of these lessons to the Full English Breakfast. But it's much more fun when it comes with a video. So thank you very much. The other YouTubers speak too fast and in a way my students are not able to understand.

  26. Thanks Anna for another great video lesson. I also prefer eating hot meals for breakfast rather than today's offers like conflex with milk or cheese sandwich. The full English breakfast seems to be a good option for me but one thing I don't like about it is, I assume it takes time to complete it.

  27. From what you cover in this video, one thing I could make difference between, which is "under the grill" and "on the oven". Is there any differences between them? thanks Anna……

  28. My full English, sausage, egg, bacon, beans and a fried slice, or toast, and maybe hash browns as well if they're available, oh and mushrooms too, sliced and fried. Many people like tomatoes too, and black pudding. Add a slice, or two, of buttered bread, and a cup of Yorkshire tea. Basically a full English is all or any combination of the above. Enjoy!!

  29. OMG terrible breakfast for an Italian, 😅 we have totally different things, but modestly I think that our cooking is better. 😉😉

  30. No, no, no, no, no, sorry! As an older Brit who has eaten many Full English on a Sunday morning and at greasy spoons everything is fried, including the tomatoes. In addition, toast is an extra. What goes into a Full English is fried bread cooked as the last item in the frying pan. A full English should also be fried up wither Beef Dripping or Lard. It is heart attack country, but the flavour cannot be beaten!

  31. Now I wanna eat breakfast. 🍳 I’m hungry. 😋😋 thank you Anna for sharing. Now I’m gonna cook breakfast. 🤗🤗🤗

  32. Thank you for this wonderful insight to English breakfast culture!
    I have been to England for several times and as a vegan I was living on tomatoes, mushrooms, baked beans and Quaker oats 😀

  33. Let me share a funny incident when I was in Bristol, UK. I was staying at JW Marriott Hotel. The first morning I went to have breakfast. So I was checking all the food items available for breakfast. There was Black Pudding as well. So I though it might be something sweet. So I took one to taste. When I had the first bite it didn't feel sweet. So I asked one of the waiters there what is it and he said I don't know so let me ask the chef and he came back and told me it is made out of pork and I didn't like what he said as I don't eat pork. But good thing was that they were letting people know what is it made of as there were many other Indians as well. So I mentioned it because in the video you said although it sounds like sweet but it not, exactly the same happened to me…haha 😀

  34. Ma'am if you don't mind I would like to request you to tell all the meaning with subtitles what you say

  35. Your presentation style reminds me of that 'Learn English' with Ricky Gervais and that guy with a head like an orange. Nice fry up though.

  36. Hello Anna. I' m an old lady ,I really enjoy your lessons. It"s a kind of therapy. THANK you very much.

  37. And usually, nobody calls it a 'full English breakfast' at home – it's just a name for a fry-up on a menu at a restaurant for tourists.

  38. Everything looks really good except I would pass on the beans (yuck). In Canada and the USA, we would have home fries with our breakfast. Also called home fried potatoes, hash or hashbrowns.

  39. Hi Anna! Being a Hispanic Jew born and raised in NYC, I’m surrounded by a huge amount of diff cultures : African, Jewish, Hispanic, Italian, German, etc etc! But the one thing that really brings us all together, is our love of food! Your version of “The Full Monty”, looks really delicious! Cheers to you and yours during this Holiday Season 🥂🎄

  40. blood pudding would cause me some concern if it were on my plate, your bacon looks different also… but wow that sure looks tasty. Listening to you chat around the table would be very nice also, nice voice 🙂 I have some online Scottish friends, the thought of having to try haggis is taking years off my life.
