fry up in a cup
I do love a full English, but obviously isn’t something you can indulge in too often, so here’s another way to get your bacon-mushroom-toast-egg fix. You just need some little ramekins, darioles or if you’re not middle-class, teacups. I call it a fry-up-in-a-cup!
The mushrooms and bacon require a tiny bit of pre-cooking to get them started, but after that you stuff everything into a cup and bake it. Bread at the bottom forms a little base, and bacon creates a wall around the outside. Should take less than 20 minutes start to finish, and half of that is just leaving it in the pot to bake.
This would also be a good one to wrap up and take with you. If you bake the egg a little over the whole thing should go solid, leaving you with the most savoury of ‘muffins’.
You could make a few interesting substitutions here I bet – a small layer of baked beans would be interesting (despite being my least favourite food), and a pinch of oregano or paprika would take it into another direction. Give it a whirl!

CakeyBoi’s Elvis Breakfast Muffins are hilarious. I love ’em.
Or for something perhaps a little more healthsome may I suggest vegan breakfast pancakes?
These Scottish Tattie Scones will work alongside any cooked breakfast. And, y’know, potatoes.
Let’s BAM it up a notch, with Kavey’s bacon pancakes.
And finally here’s a stunner: Helen’s Full English Tarte Tatin. Brilliant stuff.
