20 Healthy, Sexy Fry-Up Ideas

by - August 25, 2015


Traditional English breakfast is one of the most famous worldwide but greasy spoon cafe's let it down so take the power back and own it in your own kitchen. Let's work with what we've got and switch it up a bit to create the sexiest fry ups....

Eggs, bacon, sausages, black pudding are super satisfying and will keep you feeling satiated for ages and, let's face it, sort you RIGHT out after a big night. Adding vegetables is cheap, easy and of course a great way to have more each day. I hate baked beans they are shit. Too sweet and just blah. Get creative! 
Ok so let's look at the basic staples and see what we can do with them:

Eggs - Scrambled, poached, boiled, fried, baked - TIP: Always fry your eggs in butter for maximum sexiness
Bacon - Streaky, smoked, unsmoked, proscuitto, pancetta
Veg - Cherry/plum/vine/beef tomaotes, portabello/button/closed cup/chestnut mushrooms, courgette, spinach, avocado, squash and any others you fancy
Sausages - Chorizo? chipolatas? farmhouse?
Potatoes - Fried? roasted? sweet? mashed?
Bread or not? -Tiger? French toast? Tiger French toast? Crumpets? GIANT crumpets?! 
If you ARE going to eat bread you might as well make it a filthy white!  

Loads of combinations! Here are some recent fry ups from RR to get you inspired:

I know I said I hated baked beans and this was the last time I had them. I had to make them super spicy by adding lots of chilli to them to find them tolerable but I just liked the composition of this meal and thought I'd share it with you! Simply spinach, eggs, really peppery mushrooms and spicy beans.
