Sorry my friend, but bacon and eggs is as British as anything can be and can be found in all decent and good greasy spoon cafe's throughout the whole of the United Kingdom.
And it's REAL bacon.


Not in my experience. It may be called that, but it's not the same breakfast. usually there are tomatoes and the "bacon" is usually of the Canadian bacon variety, i.e.: thin slabs of pork. When it is the American variety, it is soggy and squishy, never crisp and the eggs are usually scrambled. It is what it is and I accept that, and I've also had some mighty good meals at the "Nag's Head," but I've never found a traditional recognizable bacon & eggs breakfast in England.


Really? that's weird!

As Freeborn said, Bacon and eggs is about as British as you can get! and is served up almost everywhere. and in most places comes with tomatoes and black pudding (blood pudding as nixie called it) Our Bacon is the best too! non of that streaky rubbish that is see through
but it's also not so thick that you could call it a thin slab of pork!

Gah I Love British food! so simple but so satisfying! .... Nothing like a Sunday Roast with Yorkshire puddings smothered in Beef Gravy!

Actually, you are right.
As much as southeners love to pride themselves on their fried chicken abilities, it was brought here by the Scots.

T-bone? That's the best cut of beef. The texture and flavor is unparallelled.


Nuh uh.

Rib eye.

Aged 80 days.

2 inches thick.

Slow cooked.

Easy no mess way to make poached eggs.

1: line a cup with gladwrap, shake spray with cooking oil or wipe the gladwrap across the butter or margarine container.

2: sprinkle salt, pepper, parsley if you like.

3: break the egg and tie the gladwrap in a knot
place in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes, depend how soft or hard you want you egg.

4: Once cooked cut the top knot off and it should slip nicely onto your toast.






yes i took pics of the lunch i made to show my daughter how to make them, when she was away .

the 1st pic isn't mine, i had to search that on the net. but the cooked egg and mushroom is


love and harmony

I beg your pudding. The Scots don't eat deep-fried mars bars. Well maybe one or two people have. But mostly it's a big huge nasty lie. Deep fried mars bars and "Stonners" (whatever the hell they are) were all invented by foreign take-away shops on quiet boring nights when there's not many customers and the vicious rumours are perpetuated by the likes of The Sun and the Star.

Foreigners invented deep fried mars bars.

I repeat. SCOTS DO NOT EAT DEEP FRIED MARS BARS. Foreign take-away shops make them through boredom, for their fat selves and the occasional junkie who will eat absolutely anything if it's handed to him for free.

I guess you missed this part of my post


But I'm convinced that they do this more to wind people up and to play up to an image that isn't really representative, but who knows?

where I was inferring that in reality not many Scots do eat such delicacies and that it's more of some sort of PR exercise, national wind up or piss take.

Haha , I think you just made my tastebuds go sproing. I've cooked for a few years off and on and that sounds yummy. Here is an oddball entree dredge a chicken breast in flour, fry in drawn butter make a blueberry cream sauce with the pan, strawberry celantro salsa as a garnish... Larousse Gastronomique is an invaluable cookbook. Happy cooking

Yup Ribeye for sure, hands down. Should try one dredged in a good blackening spice and then seared to finish in drawn butter on a cast iron pan, probably medium heat. Might be bad for the pancreas, I just dont care they taste so good

Well I hope you get the chance to visit (btw, I have always wanted to visit England and Scotland, just places I have always felt drawn to.....beautiful countries)
I think everyplace has their "freaky foods"
There was something I saw once called Hagis (spelling?).....I think it was a Scottish dish, correct me if I'm wrong. It looked horrible
But many times, those are the very things which are the best once you try them. Just like here in New Orleans, we love our crawfish. It would repulse a lot of people, but they are soooo good! (see below)
They are spicy, but it is a very unique blend of seasoning.....and we throw in corn, sausage, mushrooms (anything really). It's one of those things you can't describe, it just has to be tried!
we have a place called joe's crab shack here in south florida that does a boil similar to this..it's so damn good..i never had crawfish, but i would eat a hundred of'em..i know i would

I love it when my wife makes breafast for supper! I also like hamburger gravy poued over toast, or as it is known here: Sh^t on a shingle.

@Alkesh:
Mmm Love them mud bugs! Joes Crab Shack is good good good.
