The First Course
A true English breakfast begins with a glass of orange juice or half a grapefruit which is cut into segments, sprinkled with sugar and eaten with a spoon. Prunes or stewed fruit would also be available.

Large pots of tea and coffee to be served with milk are also brought to the table.

The Second Course
Next are cornflakes or porridge. Milk is poured onto the cornflakes, but they are eaten before they become saturated. Though for the real English breakfast enthusiast, nothing surpasses freshly prepared porridge. It is made by cooking oatflakes only with water and a pinch of salt, and is served together with a knob of butter, a sprinkling of brown sugar and hot milk then added. It is said that it is only necessary to try this dish once to become virtually addicted to it!

The Third Course
The third course consists of eggs, usually fried eggs. These would be served with fried bacon. Many people would also have scrambled eggs, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms and sausages. The healthier option would be poached eggs, but most prefered theirs a little less healthy!

This part of the breakfast is what is considered to be a 'full English' today. It is also known as a 'fry up' due to the nature in which is is cooked.
