internetsdairy and yourself both made me think of mixed grills and I went off doing my own reading. Check out this man! He lives in Meatville USA!

Maybe now would be a good time to continue the "Are Chips considered a valid addition to the traditional English Fried Breakfast?" debate, that currently rages between myself and lordhorror. I say "No", he says "Yes". You can't have Chips for breakfast, it's just not.....acceptable!!!

Chips, no. Hash browns or fried potatoes, yes.

Fried potato bread and toasted soda bread. In fact some Fryday mornings you can hold the rest of the fry and just give me a fried egg on a toasted soda.

While I understand that a mixed grill should be piled high with copious quantities of meat, I maintain that grilled halloumi should be included. It's absolutely fantastic.

And those pointy red peppers are gorgeous on the grill too. While not essential to a mixed grill experience, they'd add some colour and allow you to pretend that you're having vegetables.

HALLOUMI BELONGS.

They're evil I tell you. Evil! Like mayonnaise. And they have no business being in a mixed grill.
