Link to an horrific story!




What is it with Americans and their ability for consistently pissing the rest of the world off? Today's offence may be the worst of all and has set back UK/US relations more than the recent Huawei furore.

Once again demonstrating that they know nothing about the food they're co-opting from other countries, and not even taking the time to at least get the names right, the latest slight comes courtesy of New York Magazine on Twitter, calling sausage rolls pigs in blankets.


Is it time we cut all ties with America?
These people seem to have no honour! How dare they insult a food of the gods created in this wondrous land. A civilised people would/should know the difference between a sausage roll and pigs in blankets. A sausage roll is surrounded with pastry whilst a pig in blanket is a mini sausage surrounded by bacon.
I believe Americans may have been infiltrated by isis or some even worse terrorist organisation and we need to show them the evil of there ways.
I'm here to ask all our British ATS members to start a campaign to save these poor lost souls.
Send as many Cumberland sausages and ready made puff pastry as you can to any American ATS member and also help me build a Greggs franchise to speedily re-educate them on how to properly use pork and that can show them what a sausage roll should look like! Wish me luck.
For Britannia and pork!!!

They have been called pigs in a blanket for my almost 50 years, at least.

Where was the outrage in 1980?, 1990? 2000?


Yet another reason to hate the internet. Stupid people making up crap to freak out over.

The twit who wrote that article also wrote a piece about how fun bitmojis are. Someone should tell her she's not even clever enough to be annoying.

Sausage rolls are different than pigs in blankets as far as I always knew. Sausage rolls are usually fully wrapped in pastry whereas the things i've had called pig in a blanket were only half wrapped with more of a croissant style bread rather than pastry.

Sausage roll


Pig in a blanket


Not the same dish....

I would gladly accept any supplies you send in order to teach us what food is what. I also accept shepherd's pie, fish and chips, etc.

Pigs in blankets are wrapped carefully and lovingly in a blanket of bacon. Doubling up on the porky goodness.

We need to get the opinion of every elected official in the US and impeach them, no matter what their opinion might be.

Anything less than a full pack of Bacon and the poor piggy might get cold.

Looks like you are on the mend and you may be the first one of our American ATS membership I've managed to save.

As an internet expert in British cuisine, I an safely say that as long as it isn't jellied eels, then our international relationship should be fine.

Now onto the topic of Bubble and Squeak. . . . .

I happen to live in the U.S.A. myself. I really don't care what you call them. After reading this I find myself looking towards the kitchen.

Do you guys even know what bubble and squeak is? And by putting jellied eels in the same sentence, I'm starting to think maybe you're a deep cover member of MI6 from the east-end of London posing as an American ATS member??

I'm onto you DB.

Pork around pork is pigs in a blanket?
I think not. Look at the sausage in a croissant, it looks like a comfy blanket.
They have been called that my whole life.
Ahrg!! English!! This is ‘Merica, we all have guns and will call them what we want.
