The Mother Of All Breakfasts

24 Feb

This should also be called the mother of all hangover cures. Seriously. I’m a very big breakfast fan anyways. I would actually eat it for every meal if I could. I try not to keep cereal in my apartment because I go through about a full size box in a day or two. The only issue I have with this breakfast is having to make it hungover. It’s great once you’re eating it but my god, actually having to cook it sucks. But I did it! Friday was dedicated to recovering from Thursday night, which I did…eventually, with the help of this to die for Irish breakfast. (Truth: I actually thought I was going to die several times Friday morning, I wish that metaphor had less truth.)

Ingredients: I’m going to leave off quantities because you can really cook however much of each one you want, they don’t affect each other.

TEA. Lots of it.


Bacon (If you’re going full on Irish, go for Irish rashers, but I realize they’re not available everywhere)



Beans (Not always part of the Irish breakfast… I just really like baked beans on toast)


* If you want to go full out, get some blood pudding. It’s a lot more delicious than it sounds, check it out here. I like it, I just don’t keep it in my apartment.



1. Make a cup of tea and leave the tea bag in. Yeah, it’s that kind of a morning, I know.



2. Pop a few pans on the stove, if you don’t have more then this might take a little longer as you’ll have to reuse it.

3. Start frying your bacon and sausages in oil. Sausages took me the longest so maybe cook bacon on medium and sausages on medium-high. It really depends on your stove.


4. In a pan, pour in your beans onto low-medium heat. This can just sit there being stirred intermittently until everything else is ready

5. As each meat finishes (should be pinky and cooked through), transfer it to your plate

6. Crack your egg(s) in the pan and cook to desired egginess (I’ve decided I like that phrase. It’s gonna be a thing.. meaning over easy, over medium, over well etc.)

7. As everything is finishing up throw some toast in the toaster and serve with beans on top. Any other beans can be put onto the plate.

And that’s it. It takes a little while if you’re still trying to figure out your stove like I am, but the more you know about how quickly each meat will cook on your stove, the more efficient you can be with timing it out. It’s honest to god my favorite meal though. And you know what, all this talk of food is getting me really hungry. I’m gonna go cook my left over sausages and bacon, since I’m out of town for the next few days at a big dance competition.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!



On my second slice of toast, the beans poured out in the shape of Ireland…roughly. It was very exciting. Shut up.

    Got a little overexcited about the 11 reference.

      I spent a little too long finding that reference. Resulted in hours spent in the doctor who section of pinterest. A very, very dangerous place.
