Study reveals plumbers’ “ultimate” breakfast

The study, conducted by metals4U, asked over 500 tradespeople what their favourite items on a full English breakfast were.

The research revealed that 30% of UK plumbers chose mustard as their top condiment, 20% said they’d have gravy, and 10% chose traditional brown sauce.

Plumbers also proved to be the ultimate coffee drinkers; with 45% picking it as their breakfast drink of choice, more than any other trade.

Bacon was the runaway winner for the title of a plumber’s favourite breakfast item. However, this wasn’t the case when it came to their favourite breakfast sarnie; 45% chose sausage and 30% chose bacon.

The research found that 25% chose black pudding and 20% chose bubble and squeak. These choices were much more popular with plumbers than other trades.

A total of 85% are happy to go without poached eggs or tomatoes and 80% don’t believe hashbrowns are an important part of a traditional Full English.
