Time for more St. Patrick's Day recipes!!! Next up, the sheet pan full English breakfast...wait what? English not Irish? I shall explain (I have a reason I promise).
First off, I've discovered there tends to be some confusion about the difference between a full Irish breakfast and a full English breakfast. The main difference is the inclusion of black pudding. In a full Irish breakfast it's more of a standard must have where as in a full English breakfast it's of an optional add on.
I did try some blood sausage in Scotland because, you know, when in Rome. However, I discovered it's not particularly my thing 🤣. Also it's not at my grocery store so I didn't sweat it for this recipe. Ergo, a sheet pan full English breakfast. However, if you want to go for a full traditional Irish meal this St. Patrick's Day then feel free to add some black pudding to this dish!
So what is included in the traditional dish?
- Sausage (or "Bangers" as they say).
- Roasted tomatoes
- Baked beans
- Potatoes (usually considered optional)
And I've got it all on ONE SHEET PAN for you! As per usual I'm super excited about the quick and easy clean up of a one pot recipe.
You can bet we'll be having this recipe for St. Patrick's day brunch this year! Scroll down for the complete sheet pan full English breakfast recipe.Print
