Supersize take on breakfast

Well as you can see in the video above, Florentine Restaurant & Bar has a supersize take on one of great British dishes: breakfast ostrich egg sunny side up. Ostrich eggs can weigh up to 2 kg and are sourced from a farm in Lincolnshire, which makes the dish subject to availability as ostriches hatch on good weather. The Ostrich Egg Full English costs £65 and serves 4-6 people. It comes with fried tomatoes, portobello mushrooms, streaky bacon, baked beans, sourdough bread, and Cumberland sausages.

Ostrich eggs are the largest laid by any bird. One egg is the equivalent of 24 chicken eggs and contains around 2,000 calories. An entire egg also contains around 144g of protein, which is almost three times the adult’s daily protein intake recommended by the NHS.
