Sunny side up for eggs.

THE great British breakfast is making a comeback.

New figures show that increasing numbers of Britons are opting for traditional bacon and eggs to start the day .

Egg sales have gone up by 10 per cent over the last 12 months and are now worth pounds 500million a year, according to trade magazine The Grocer.

More than a third of these were eaten for breakfast, although the trend has moved away from fried eggs towards boiled, scrambled or omelettes.

Industry analysts also claim the amount of bacon eaten for breakfast has risen by 6.8 per cent in the last year .

This growth is being driven by the popularity of low-carbohydrate diets and the reintroduction of the Lion Quality mark.
