but don't say fried bread as it is disgusting

Crispy back bacon
Fried egg, not flipped, slightly runny in centre. Not scrambled.
Well grilled good quality sausage.
Black pudding is a must. No cooked breakfast is complete with out it.
Baked beans.
Grilled tomato (NOT tinned)
Mushrooms.
Anything else is superfluous but hash browns are nice. I prefer toast to fried bread.

Now you've got me drooling.

Freshly squeezed orange juice, English breakfast tea and lots more toast with good quality jam or marmalade for afterwards.

Agree, really good bacon makes all the difference.
Happy with scrambled egg or fried
Not tinned tomatoes
Not those weird boiled (tinned?) mushrooms, but proper ones
Fried bread! But only fried in a very little oil (bacon fat for preference), not soaked in it!

Mmmm... what fluffy said <<tootles off to the fridge...>>

Really good bacon. I like streaky so that it is crunchy, but back bacon OK. Must be smoked.
Nice meaty sausage. Plain pork for pref, not a really herby one.
Crispy fried black pudding.
Lovely fried egg with runny yolk
Mushrooms
Fried, previously boiled, new potatoes
Tea
Toast
Marmalade and real butter

I'm a big fan of potato cakes

Poor DH is always eating my vegetarian/low fat food and I thought I'd do him a really good full english for dinner this week

I'd like Fluffyanimal's breakfast on a hot plate. I'd like to have hot toast afterwards and tea from a tea-pot that isn't stained and chipped.[/Harrington Hotel, Bath]

URGH at the black pudding abominators.

Crispy smoked bacon - 3 rashers
Butchers sausages, cumberland for preference - 2
2 Fried eggs - I like them turned over.
Grilled tomato - two halves
Mushrooms - chestnut or field, cooked in loadsa butter

HP sauce

Toast (got to be white bread, brown bread toasted is not good enough)
Marmalade - Coopers Vintage

Tea, lashings of.

I do a full English most Saturdays and the above is what I cook. DD likes baked beans <sacrilegious> with hers so she has them in a separate dish as me and DP can't stand them with breakfasts.

I am salivating at all of the above, but would like to add that I love poached eggs instead of fried.
Good crispy bacon and quality sausages are vital.
I really like cold white toast and good butter on the side

OOH and vital is a good drink either strong tea or proper coffee.

Agree with fluffyanimal but I would definitely have fried bread.

Crispy bacon, properly fried mushrooms (but not lumps of luke warm grey putty - yuck!) and for me, scrambled eggs on toast (never have liked fried ones). Yumm.
