Full English breakfasts

If you stay in an English hotel you will probably find the words ‘full English breakfast’ on the menu. This is a traditional hot meal which usually includes bacon, eggs, sausages, tomatoes, mushrooms and even baked beans.

And now it seems that the traditional full English breakfast is back on the menu for an increasing number of British people.  New research has shown that people are choosing to start the day with an old fashioned breakfast commonly referred to as a ‘fry up’. So far this year, English people have eaten 10% more fried breakfasts than last year, and sales of eggs and bacon have increased by 14%.

Some experts think that the fry-up has become more popular because a hot breakfast is good for you. For example, eggs are a rich source of protein, vitamins and minerals. Others suggest that our working population is trying to go for longer without eating during the day.
