Sausage Voted As The Most Important Part Of A Full-English Breakfast
| Last updated
The humble full English is a very contentious issue - if you're from the UK you'll be fully aware of its cultural importance.
But in a recent poll, the country (well, LADbible Twitter followers) have had their say about what the most important element of this culinary delight really is - and it's the sausage.
Whether these people are referring to those cheap and cheerful ones, or a posh herby one, the country has spoken and it's the most important part of the breakfast treat.
What's the most important part of a Full English? Final
- LADbible (@ladbible) April 4, 2021
In the first round, it was between bacon, mushrooms, egg and toast. A shocking three percent of people chose mushrooms - what were you thinking guys?
Egg got a respectable 22.5 percent, while toast came out with a disappointing 7.4 percent, crowning bacon the winner of the first semi-final, with 67.1 percent of the vote.
But what would bacon be up against? Semi-final two saw beans, black pudding and tomatoes share 22 percent of the vote, with sausage coming out the firm winner - rightfully.
In the final, the two heavyweights of the full English went head to head, with sausage coming out with just over 55.3 percent of the vote, leaving bacon with 44.7 percent - still a respectable outcome.
However, if there is one thing that definitely shouldn't be on a full English, it's peas.
You would think it was common knowledge that a full English breakfast was no place for greens, but 'Jessica M' went ahead and added a big pile of peas to her brekkie before sharing it with the world via Twitter page Rate My Plate.

Naturally, uproar ensued.
Commenting on the photo, one person said: "It's a criminal offence to consume peas before noon. Especially when you have beans. Beans are your 'morning pea'."
Another said: "Why would you ruin this relatively promising start to the day with peas? Why? It makes no sense. Who made you think this was OK? This is NOT OK. Please stop doing this."
A third added: "Peas on a breakfast commands a 10 year sentence in a hard labour camp."
There were many, many more comments along these lines; truly, people were incensed by the presence of peas on her plate.
Then, out of nowhere, popular fish finger purveyors Birds Eye got involved and praised Jessica's efforts, going as far as to say it 'admired' the inclusion of peas.
We admit that peas in an English breakfast is a bit rogue, but we also admire the attempt at making it healthy. Thoughts? #PEAS https://t.co/esVcgiWu8R

That's exactly what someone who sells peas would say.
