I have eaten and I have had eaten

Post by faultless » Thu Oct 25, 2012 8:28 am

I know what "I have eaten breakfast" is trying to say, as well as "I have had breakfast". What I can't figure out is "I have had eaten breakfast".

Can somebody please help me out? I argued with somebody in school today for 4 hours about this one.

Thank you.
