​Bacon Is The UK’s Favourite Part Of A Full English Says Poll

​Bacon Is The UK’s Favourite Part Of A Full English Says Poll

We all love sitting down to a good fry-up on a Saturday morning, harnessing the power of grease to fend off the after-effects of those beers the night before.

But while most of us can agree that the full English is A Very Good Thing, not everyone might agree on the finer details.

Do you prefer your beans to come in a little ramekin to avoid cross-contamination with the other components, or is that poncy? Is it only a true fry-up with a fried egg, over poached or scrambled? Is the black pudding your favourite bit, or does it make your stomach turn?

Well, the people have spoken, and it seems the one thing they can largely agree on is that bacon is the MVP of the full English game.

The research comes from Leonardo Hotels' Great British Breakfast Survey, which saw 2,000 adults from across the UK surveyed about their breakfast habits.

When asked which items they would want in their perfect fry-up, bacon came out on top as the most essential element, with 69 percent of Brits saying they needed it on their plate.

Sausages took the number two spot with 66 percent, followed by toast (62 percent), baked beans (57 percent), a fried egg (53 percent), hash browns (51 percent) fried mushrooms (42 percent), grilled tomatoes (40 percent) and black pudding (29 percent).

When it comes to sauce, it's tomato ketchup leading the way with 29 percent, while brown sauce wasn't far behind with 23 percent.

Mind you, those two classics weren't the only condiments that came up, as five percent of Brits would happily add BBQ sauce or mayonnaise to their fry-up, while three percent would opt for chilli sauce... the maniacs.

The full English also came out on top as the UK's favourite breakfast, showing that we're suckers for tradition.

"Despite the rise of trendy alternatives like shakshuka, huevos rancheros and smashed avocado, the good old-fashioned fry-up continues to reign supreme," the Leonardo Hotels blog says.

"The 'full English' came out on top as the UK's favourite breakfast, with 83 percent of Brits saying they love this classic dish.

"It seems that as a nation, we still favour more traditional breakfast options, with cereal (81 percent), a bacon sandwich (79 percent), croissants and pastries (78 percent), and pancakes (77 percent) making up the rest of the top five."
