A Full English Breakfast, also referred to as a Full English or a Fry Up, is a typical breakfast served in England and the U.K. that consists of fried eggs, sausage links, ham, fried mushrooms, beans, toast, bacon, a fried tomato, black pudding and potatoes. The "full English" saw a spike as the subject in memes starting in February 2020 after a viral Reddit post, among other uses and references, including a frequently used image of the dish as an exploitable.
Memes about the full English breakfast appeared as early as the late 2000s, using older meme templates like Bear Grylls Better Drink My Own Piss and Bad Luck Brian, among others. Most of these early memes about the full English revolved around its comparison to the typical American breakfast. Memes about the full English also surfaced in 2016 centered around Brexit.  Additionally, the subreddit /r/fryup was created in September 2015 and is a group designed for sharing images of U.K. breakfasts.
