What Is A Full English Breakfast?
“A full breakfast (also full english) is a substantial cooked breakfast meal served in the United Kingdom and Ireland, that typically includes bacon, sausage, eggs, Black pudding, baked beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, toast, and a beverage such as coffee or tea” via wikipedia.
An english breakfast is also referred to as a vegan “fry up" in most areas of Great Britain which completely makes sense because that’s exactly what this cooked vegan breakfast is, fried. We cheated a little and baked the sausage and bacon to get everything on the breakfast table at pretty much the same time.
This hearty english fry up recipe is completely plant based and gluten-free but honestly we wouldn’t refer to this as a healthy breakfast as the calorie count is high; and nearly everything is fried, we consider this cooked breakfast more our weekend splurge, or our cheat meal for the week. Fried sausage and bacon is still fried sausage and bacon right. But every now and then a splurge is fine.

What Do Baked Beans Taste Like?
Light sweet molasses flavor, tomatoey, complimented by a rich smokiness.
What Do Vegan Fried Eggs Taste Like?
On there own a little flavorless, but the yolk has hints of egg flavor. It's a little chewy but works great in this recipe with all the other flavors. Would buy again just be sure to season or use in a flavorful dish.
