"The English breakfast (also called full English breakfast, full monty or fry-up) is a hearty and filling breakfast traditionally consisted of sausages, fried eggs, grilled tomatoes, beans (baked beans), bacon, mushrooms and buttered toast. Often you will also find white or black pudding (English blood sausage) as well as hash browns. Whilst it is commonly referred to as a "full English breakfast", in the various regions of Great Britain and Ireland it is also named according to the region i.e. "full Scottish", "full Welsh", "full Irish" etc. You can also find regional variations of this classic breakfast: In Scotland, for example, "tattie scones" (a kind of potato pancake) and haggis are served, while the Welsh people enjoy their breakfast with "laverbread" (a seaweed dish). All of this is often accompanied by coffee, tea or orange juice. The breakfast can also be made vegetarian or vegan. Simply replace sausages, bacon and butter with plant-based alternatives. For a vegan version, either omit the egg or prepare scrambled eggs with an egg substitute."
