Serves: 4

Everyone knows the classic “full English” but have you ever heard of the “full French. A tasty alternative to the classic with Boudin noir being the French equivalent of black pudding.


  • 6 Toulouse sausages
  • 6-8 small flat mushrooms
  • 3 medium tomatoes, halved
  • Olive oil to drizzle
  • 1 tbsp Bonne Maman Bitter Orange Marmalade
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme sprigs
  • 6 slices boudin noir
  • 6 rashers
  • 6 large free-range eggs


1Heat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas mark 6. Put the sausages in a large, sturdy non-stick roasting tin and bake in the oven for 10 minutes.

2Remove the tin from the oven and turn the sausages. Add the mushrooms and tomatoes, and drizzle with a little olive oil, then dot the tomatoes with the marmalade, thyme and seasoning. Return to the oven for another 10 minutes.

3Remove the tin from the oven and cook for a further 5 minutes. Crack in the eggs and return the roasting tin to the oven for 6-8 minutes or until the eggs are cooked how you like them.

4Then allow everyone to help themselves.


  1. C’est fantastique Merveilleux! Meilleur que le petit dejeuner Anglais! Ma ventre ne peut pas attendre gouter ce delicieux
    petit dejeuner francais!

  2. Best meal of the day if you give it this French or the English treatment. Fires have been banked overnight and on waking the body craves more fuel. Coffee, juice, toast are good additions, as are morning newspapers and soothing classical music.
