Do you have mustard on your full English? Turns out you aren’t the only one.

Electricians have revealed what goes on their full English breakfast and the results could raise a few eyebrows.

Almost a third (32%) prefer coffee with breakfast, 27% would rather juice and only 26% enjoy a cup of tea.

It was a tight run contest between the battle of the baps, but sausage (42%) just edged out bacon (37%).

The majority of electricians prefer brown sauce (18%) but surprisingly, 13% would rather have mustard and 7% prefer gravy. Only 11% enjoy ketchup, and 39% would choose no sauce at all.

The study, conducted by online metal suppliers metals4U, asked over 500 tradespeople what their favourite items on a builder’s breakfast were. Bacon, sausages and fried eggs came out on top, but the data revealed that many electricians were ready to let go of some fry up classics.

Interestingly, almost 9 in 10 (89%) are happy to go without a poached egg, and 85% don’t believe black pudding is an important part of a traditional Full English.

Electricians’ top 5 breakfast items are:

  1. Bacon (55%)
  2. Sausage (50%)
  3. Fried Egg (45%)
  4. Scrambled Egg (31%)
  5. Tomatoes (31%)

Electricians’ least favourite items include:

  1. Poached Egg (11%)
  2. Black Pudding (15%)
  3. Hashbrowns (18%)
  4. Fried Bread (26%)
  5. Toast (26%)
