Grandma’s Recipe For A Full Irish Breakfast (Edited Version)

Being 1/3 Irish, and St. Paddy’s Day tomorrow (March 17th, 2012), I thought I would share Grandma’s recipe for a Full Irish Breakfast.

Just what the hell is a Full Irish Breakfast?

Lucky Charms And Jameson Irish Whiskey,  or skillet fried bacon, sausage, black & white pudding, scrambled eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, and potato bread.

Just what the hell is black & white pudding?

Disgusting. Black pudding is made with pig’s blood, barley, oats and beef fat. White Pudding is similar but without the blood and made with minced liver.

Just what the hell do I do then?

Fry the bacon, sausages, eggs, and Black & White pudding until cooked. Try not to throw up over the thought of the Black & White pudding.

If you are having Potato Bread also fry with chopped tomatoes or mushrooms until cooked. Duh, Grandma!

Serve the fry-up along with a pot of tea and glasses of freshly squeezed George Killian’s Irish Red orange juice and you have yourself a Full Irish breakfast.

Or dump the whole thing in the garbage, and drive to Denny’s and get a Grand Slam Breakfast.

    Love the post. Most of the things you crossed out are the better bits of the Full Irish. Great to see the influence of our little island spreading across the globe, even if it is only for one day a year. Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Dublin, Ireland.

      Mother’s side is second generation Irish. My brother currently is living in Cook, so we are big in Irish traditions and heritage. Thanks for appreciating the humor.

    I would go to Dot’s Dinner in the surrounding area of New Orleans. (If I were anywhere near there) Denny’s is always pretty nasty, or at least it was the last time I went to one. (about 10 years ago I guess I’ll just cook my own Irish Breakfast minus the black and white pudding. I’ll make Grits with eggs over easy, (not scrambled) bacon (not ham). sausage patties, (not links) fresh sliced tomatoes, (not fried) and toast. No potato bread or mushrooms. Orange juice would be nice but we have to go with coffee. (not tea) Folgers med dark Colombian Blend is pretty darn good. Pretty close to an Irish Breakfast. (sort of)

      Sounds good. What time should I have the family over?

    Still not really getting the black & white puddings. Aside from being easier, sounds like Denny’s is also a lot cheaper. Maybe kinda nasty as someone already pointed out but, I’m okay with that if it’s that much easier. I’m lazy.

    All of it is delicious – I’ve had a full-on Irish breakfast and love them. It slows your heart down well after the initial coffee rush.
