Early leader Sullivan says he had full English breakfast after 4:30 rise

An article from the New York Times has caused a minor bit of controversy on social media after the world-famous newspaper published a recipe last month for a Full English breakfast.

For most lovers of a good full English, the best way to cook a full English breakfast with all the trimmings is to fry the sausages, bacon and eggs in a pan.

The meal, includes Worcestshire sauce drizzled mushrooms (that's OK, they're allowed), sausages, bacon, tomatoes and toast. It does also mention baked beans but thankfully you don't have to put them in the oven with the toast also being cooked in a more conventional manner.

Don't knock it until you try it, that's all we'll say...
