Bloke leaves people baffled with ‘genius’ method of cooking Full English
| Last updated
A man has left Brits baffled after seeing his unusual way of making a fry up - but I won’t lie, I think it’s kind of genius.
While we may not all agree on exactly what should be on the plate when it comes to a fry up, with experts (erroneously) claiming that hash browns have no place on there, we can all agree that it’s a British staple.
And, as such, most of us know how to knock one together, even with a killer hangover.
However, people have been left baffled after seeing how TikTok content creator Lawrence - who is known as @lawrencetiktok90 on the platform - cooks his.
As the name suggests, most of the ingredients are fried, but, of course, other items, such as beans and tomatoes, are generally heated in a pan on the hob, right?
Not according to Lawrence, because he lashes all his ingredients to be fried into the frying pan as well as two partially opened tins - one of beans, one of plum tomatoes - to cook through.
In the clip he wraps his hand in a tea-towel as he warns: “Be careful it's not too hot,” before removing the lid off the ‘lovely’ beans and chucking them out onto the plate.
When it comes to the tomatoes, he uses the same tea-towel but this time he carefully opens up the can before using a spoon to fish out a few tomatoes - avoiding a plate full of juice.
Personally, I think it’s an absolute genius idea and it saves on washing up, so what’s not to love?
However, the clip made its way onto to X, formerly known as Twitter, where folks have been left scratching their heads at the unusual method.
One person asked: “Who does beans like that?” Well, me now, I can tell you that for nothing.
While someone else said: “I think I’d rather wash the extra pans than risk third degree burns opening the cans.”
A third wrote: “I have so many questions. The first. WHY?!!”
Another said: “Everything about this is a horror.”
A fifth X user said: “That can't be healthy… that metal isn't designed/etc with being heated in mind, got to release lots of 'stuff'.”
But, as ever, not everyone agreed and others thought the idea was pretty smart.
“Honestly, one of the best cooking hacks I’ve ever seen, saves on pans,” said one impressed social media user.
A second said: "I've never cooked beans or tomatoes like that! Ever... but that might just be a genius idea."
While another commented: “Yeah, my dad does his mushy peas the same way. Saves on washing up. He works smart. Proper job.”
